We had the honor of being the first Americans to stay with Jacqueline & Axel, and had a simply wonderful time. It is uncommon to find SUCH generosity and thoughtfulness at a B&B. From the amazing breakfast spread (homemade yogurt, delicious eggs fresh from the coop, local jams & honey, baked goods, bread, cheese, etc etc), large comfortable rooms with great linens and modern baths (our huge tub was luxurious!), lovely gardens and common areas, and those little nice touches that make a difference - a fridge with drinks for guests, a computer room, coffee or tea anytime, a library, chocolates and a welcome note in your room, aperitifs....they really have thought of it all! For us, the lack of "American" amenities: air conditioning, ice machine, or mounted shower in our bathroom was not something we needed or missed- typical in Europe and what we expect when staying at B&Bs there. But if these things are more important to you than being warmly welcomed into someone's home, maybe you're better off at a hotel. : )
We opted to partake in the community dinner they offer, which we thoroughly enjoyed. If you're one of those people who loves to connect with others while traveling- stay here, do the dinner, you won't regret it! Even though there was a group of mixed language travelers, we talked all night, and Jacqueline graciously translated so everyone was included- while Axel made sure we were well fed and had plenty of wine.
The location is just minutes from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and centrally located to explore the lovely towns of the Luberon, Avignon and the Rhone valley wine region, and more. Jacqueline is oh so helpful and can answer all your questions about what to see in the area or how to get there. But the grounds are so pretty and the place so relaxing, you might just opt to hang around there all day. Either way, you'll have a good time. Thoroughly recommended!
Jacqueline & Axel, merci d'un séjour merveilleux!

I'm glad you liked our breakfast buffet... we try to accommodate all kind of needs, from the French (bread, butter, jam) to the Swiss (ham, cheese), without forgetting the Americans (pancakes, omelettes, cereals)... we haven't had any Norwegians yet so we never offered fish and such (yet) ! LOL (Ok... that was stereotypical... sorry !).
We will always remember the dinner we had with you and our other guests... it was real fun !!! and what a mixture of languages (French, English, German)... phewwww
Anyway... come back to visit us next time you are in Europe !
