Best lodging accommodations of our entire 16 days in France. Great room and bathroom with a "real" shower and separate sinks with plenty of space. Many relaxing areas from pool side (a little too cool in late Sept to swim but others did) to intimate sitting rooms. Outside court yard for happy hour with other guests was very nice. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for several days with another couple. This is a very large and old farmhouse situated out in the countryside on beautiful property. The rooms are big and the beds very comfortable. The house is beautiful! Julian made us feel very welcome and he goes all out with the cooking. Breakfasts are amazing with so... More

Cosy room, warm welcome and friendly hosts, excellent and generous homemade food, we always stop there when we go to South of France. It is the perfect location to visit all Provence village, markets, etc.. Avignon, Baux-de-Provence, St Rémy, Gordes, all these are within short distance. The house as been renovated with a lot of taste and authenticity.The aperitif and... More

My husband, daughter and I spent 2 nights at Sous l"Olivier in September 2013. The hotel was beautiful, the room very comfortable and the dinner and breakfasts were amazing. We really enjoyed the communal dinner which was not only delicious but shared with lovely travelers.

My wife and I have just spent 3 nights at Sous l'Olivier and it is a perfect location with excellent hospitality, facilities and food. We have been visiting France regularly from UK for 15 years and always spend time in Provence every year. We used to stay about 8 km away from this location but the proprietor retired.

I stayed two nights. It was very clean, quiet and comfortable, very much like a vacation home. The breakfasts were awesome and healthy. Unfortunately, I did not get to experience Julian’s cooking, which the others raved about. I will definitely refer to friends and stay again when near. Thank you!

This is second time we have visited Sous L'olivier and I will definitely be going back again and again and again! The place is beautiful and the rooms are great. After a long drive we arrived tired and with a nail in our tyre. Julian greeted us and couldn't have done more to help with the tyre, calling the local... More

This place can't be trusted! We reserved a room in the beginning of March 2014, for August, for a family of 4. The owner sent us a picture of the proposed room - 'Tulipe'. Three weeks before our holiday we sent an email to confirm our arrival and the owner confirmed that everything was OK. However, when we arrived they... More

I just found the name of this B&B again and had to write a review so I would be able to recommend it! The farmhouse is everything you picture it to be. Huge, stone, rustic yet clean and comfortable, in the quiet countryside with geese roaming the fields. The owner is great and very hands on. The poor guy really... More

We found Sous L'olivier on TripAdvisor and could not have been happier with our stay. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable, Julien's breakfast spreads were decadent with meat, cheese, homemade breads, homemade jams, yogurt, cereal, fresh squeezed orange juice etc. And dinners taken with the other guests......out of this world. If you are interested in a true cultural experience, this... More
