We recently had the distinct pleasure (and good fortune), to discover and stay at this Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume "hidden gem" B&B, in June 2015. After a long, rainy day of cycling, we were warmly greeted by our hosts Philippe and Marie Ange Ghysels-Goosens. Our first experience was to soak in the large, jetted spa tub in our room. This was followed by... More

We stayed here for one night during our trip through Provence and was very pleased with our entire experience. The hosts Marie Ange and Phillipe are very warm and welcoming. Marie Ange prepared a wonderful home-cooked meal of duck and frites while Phillipe entertained us with his stories and conversation. The room and bathroom is clean, cozy and very comfortable....

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing vacation at La Courtesie, we've been there for a birthday present I made for her. The owners, Marie Ange and Phillipe, are very kind and generous. We enjoyed all the comforts, including the swimming pool, the amazing garden and the modern kitchen. Our bedroom was lovely and intimate. We had a great relax... More

My wife and I booked two nights at "La Courtesie" and stayed in the Studio which, though close to the main house and the pool, is quite secluded. The husband and wife who run "La Courtesie" are and absolute delight. They are both so very helpful that you really do feel as though you are part of the family. Whilst... More

My husband and I just returned from a one week stay at La Courtesie. Marie and Phillipe were wonderful hosts. We particularly loved their two dogs who would greet us whenever we returned from a driving trip. They prepared a multi-course gourmet dinner on our first night, which was some of the best duck breast that I have ever tasted.... More

Charming bed and breakfast run by delightful couple Phillipe and Marie Ange. Our room was a good size, in the main house with en suite bathroom including jacuzzi bath and walk in shower. Large comfortable bed with programmable mattress and flat screen Tv. All spotlessly clean with a sparkling pool and terrace overlooking orchards. Our hosts were extremely helpful and... More

We loved our stay, and wish we had the time to stay longer. The rooms were amazing- beautiful and with more accommodations than our home. The food was healthy and delicious. Marie and Philippe were phenomenal hosts. The dinner conversation was engaging. Overall, I felt comfortable and at home. I will go back next time we are in Provence.

Phillipe and Marie Ange are your hosts in this remarkably lovely place where the setting is matched in charm only by the incredible service provided by the owners. Everywhere you look outside are little nooks and special places for relaxing all of which feature numerous comfortable chairs and recliners.. I read an entire book just moving from one of them...

We are still talking about the "at home" feeling we sensed in Sainte Baume and at La Courtesie. We stayed in the main house. Mr. and Mrs. Philip are beautiful hosts and genuinely care about the guests. This was my first stay at a B & B and I really enjoyed every moment!
