The Alegria might be located in beautiful Provence, France, but its name actually means joy in Spanish and Portuguese.
A stay here clearly brings a lot of that, for this is a stylish guest house with incredibly friendly hosts and a pretty central position – on the edge of the village of Aups - which makes it an ideal base to discover many lovely places such as Lac Sainte-Croix, Moustiers Sainte Marie, Aix-en-Provence, not forgetting the A list areas of Saint Tropez, Cannes and Nice.
In fact, Aups is basically at the junction of the wine route, truffle route and the Gorges du Verdon, part of an exceptionally lovely protected natural park. You may very well forge new friendships here, most probably with Dieter & Cindy, the charming owners who are very entertaining and a font of local knowledge, but with other guests as well as the whole place is just so stress free and conducive to fine conversation, preferably with a glass of the excellent local wine to hand.
You can also intermingle by the olive tree garden (the Alegria produces its own olive oil) the swimming pool or even play a game of “petanque”. Alegria organizes in low season theme packages that wine and art lovers will really appreciate (wine tasting, gastronomy, wellness, sports and arts).

Reviews

Tranquility and luxury
Date of stay 11/07/2018
Thoroughly recommend Alegria (and I never usually bother to review stuff): Warm welcome from hosts. The house is in an absolutely stunning area, and near enough to walk very easily into Aups for dinner. Wonderful, enormous views from pool area. Privacy, peace, beauty and luxury....can't think of anything at all I didn't love. We had a two room suite, loads of space, superbly equipped, own terrace, own pretty garden, and it felt pretty much like we had our own pool as we rarely saw anyone else. If you are near Nice, don't miss St Paul de Vence. Stayed in a beautiful place there too (Etoile de St Paul). The rooms were smaller there, which wouldn't matter at all if you are travelling as a couple - we had a our daughter with us.
Wunderschönes Chambre d'Hôtes, liebenswerte Gastgeber
Date of stay 10/08/2013
Wir verbrachten im August 2013 eine wunderschöne und sehr entspannte Woche im Alegria. Das typische provenzialische Landhaus liegt inmitten eines großen Olivenhains und wird von den sehr sympathischen und liebenswerten Gastgebern Cindy und Dieter betrieben. Die Zimmer sind sehr geräumig, individuell, modern und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Zur schönen Atmosphäre tragen auch die stilvollen Kunstwerke bei, die alle Räume dekorieren. Jedes Zimmer hat Zugang zu einer eigenen Terrasse. Das reichhaltige Frühstück wird jeden Morgen - mit einem anderen Service - auf der herrlichen Terrasse mit Blick in die Landschaft serviert. Es gibt mehrere Sorten selbst gebackenes Brot, Wurst, Käse, Lachs, leckere selbst gemachte Marmelade, Müsli, frisches Obst, frisch gepressten Orangensaft, Kaffee, Tee, Jogurt und täglich wechselnde Köstlichkeiten wie Pain au chocolat oder Croissants. Wir haben fast jeden morgen am Swimming Pool verbracht und entspannt, um dann Ausflüge in die wunderschöne Umgebung der Provence zu unternehmen. Cindy und Dieter gaben viele wertvolle Tipps für Tagestouren oder Restaurants. In der eigenen Boutique kann man selbst gepresstes Olivenöl, Duftöle, Tee oder Honig als Mitbringsel erstehen, oder für den Eigenbedarf, um sich ein Stück Provence zu Hause zu bewahren. Cindy und Dieter sind äußerst herzliche und liebenswerte Gastgeber, die ihr Chambre d'Hôtes mit Freude betreiben. Wir hatten das Gefühl, bei Freunden zu Gast zu sein und werden sicher wieder kommen.
