You cannot find a better place to stay. Our hostess, Sabine, is the sweetest, happiest person that made us feel so welcome. She treated us "better than family". I hated to leave. This B&B is very clean, the breakfast was continental and good. She makes the best apricot jam. Breads were delicious, nothing like in the states. Her helper, Madeline,... More

Madame Sabine takes hospitality to a whole other level. She is L'Ombre du Palais. From the moment you meet Sabine she is warm and welcoming with excellent English. Her home is like a beautifully decorated museum. She is passionate about her city and has excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities although her best recommendation was to slow down and just... More

We couldn't believe how fortunate we were to stay with Sabine - the only problem was that it was only for two nights - I could have stayed forever. We hadn't planned ahead and feel truly blessed to have found Sabine's place so close to the Palais des Papes. Sabine was gracious, warm and welcoming and a beautiful, classy lady,... More

my wife and I stayed 5 fabulous nights at Sabine's B & B. Best B & B experience we ever had. Beautiful clean room, great breakfast, afternoon wine and snacks but best of all was Sabine herself. She couldn't do enough to make our stay a memorable one. Her recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing were perfect. Her recommendation of Michelle... More

Thea and I stayed with Sabine for 6 nights in early October. This was our base for exploring Provence with a driver\ guide This was a great combination. Previous reviewers have already encapsulated the wonderful experience of L'Ombre du Palais in their comments which I also endorse. Our stay with Sabine was the most memorable in our 5 weeks in...

Sabine Ferrand’s L'Ombre du Palais is why my husband and I love to travel. How often do you get a comfortable, tastefully decorated room, a knock your eyes out guest terrace with a terrific view of the main sights, a tasty French breakfast and a hostess who takes care of your every need? We arrived late (by American standards, right... More

Sabine's house is a delight and so is she. I stayed there with my two children, Josh age 10 and Esther age 12 who were entranced watching the sun set from the roof terrace. Sabine was most accommodating in creating a dinner that suited their tastes. The location is extraordinarily central but with luggage it was worth taking a taxi... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in early October 2013. Meeting its owner, Sabine, was as delightful as staying at this excellently located and comfortable lodging where you are treated as a welcome guest in what feels more like a home rather than a standard B&B. Sabine arranged for transfers and a one-day guided tour of the countryside... More

“My house is your house.” Owner Sabine Ferrand’s motto, displayed in the hall, truly reflects the feeling one gets when entering A L Ombre du Palais. Located close to the historic centre of town and Palais du Papes, we stayed five nights at this comfortable B&B and found the atmosphere as warm and welcoming as its hostess, Sabine. A charming...
