We stayed four nights too long at this bed and breakfast. If I hadn't come with my French friend, we would have REALLY been in a bad position!! I speak enough French to get by, but their note that someone spoke my language( which is English) is FALSE! The daughter of Sophie did not speak English and no one else... More

We stayed two nights at Le Petit Nid and they were by far the worst in two months of travel in France and Germany. Some fussy decoration fails to hide a basic room and promises don't eventuate in service. The first morning breakfast eventually arrived an hour after the agreed time. To avoid a repeat situation we asked for an... More

It's all about location. We stayed only one night and were put up on the third floor of a rambling old house which has been badly / cheaply converted into apartments. Property prices are at a premium here so to be staying in such a great location was all it was about for us. For this, it worked well. With... More

My father and I was there at June 2013, we booked a twin room for 3 nights. It's a clean room with shower and decorated very sweet. Great location in the Aix en Provence, 5-10 mins to center and around 20 mins to bus station(by walk). Sophie and her daughter are very nice; they're willing to give us travel advice.... More

We stayed one night at Sophie's. Our room, Cannelle, was small but comfortable and had a great bathroom. Everything looked new. It was a bit noisy but not late into the night. Breakfast is served in Sophie's kitchen. The rooftop deck offers an amazing view of the area. Sophie also owns a cute, good restaurant nearby. We had a delicious... More

I was terrified I'd made a bad choice with this hotel, but it ended up being good if quirky! Firstly the location is almost impossible to find. I asked at the supermarket and it turned out to be next door. Only signage is on the buzzers for the apartments. Parking for us was 2-3 blocks away which was eur10.50 for... More

I loved staying at Le Petit Nid because it felt like I had my own apartment (pied-a-terre) in a GREAT location...just next to the main squares, yet knowing that breakfast was waiting for me the next morning in a totally French kitchen provided just enough comfort to feel totally taken care of. Sophie avec famille are so nice and speak... More

Sophie is a lovely, helpful host with a spotlessly clean place. The location is a healthy walk from the train station but otherwise well situated for walking about town. It is a flat on the second floor in an inconspicuous old apartment building and was a little tricky to find. We stayed for two nights in the twin room, which... More

We stayed in this b&b one night right after our flight from NY and I will try my best to describe for the future guests. We stayed at the pigeon room which was nice and spacious but the bathroom did not have a door, which can be auqwerd for some. The building is old and renovated so it gives you... More

1. The room is quaint and well-appointed, wth mostly new features, and would rate 4 stars, definitely, even if the floor undulates like the Conie Island coaster ;) (hey, it's an old building). Sophie and her mom are helpful. The building's location is very, very convenient to walking in the old town, and that old town is well worth seeing... More
