French Fields is a lovely, relaxing place to stay. It feels very much like an authentic Provençal experience. Ruth is a very caring and kind host. Positioned well, close to wonderful wineries. Highly recommended.

Absolutely wonderful find and Ruth and Barry are delightful hosts. They are proud of what they have done with the property and it shows. The accommodation itself is really quite comfortable and the entire attitude of the place is just one that makes you feel at home. Ruth does a masterful job with her fruits and breakfast. One cant help being happy for them as they seem so content with their lives and home. Fantastic location to visit the wineries in Blenheim, their restaurant recommendations were also spot on!

We had a short but sweet stay at French Fields. The accommodation is set on a gorgeous property with huge amounts of lavender. We stayed in the Maison Lavande. There is a cute kitchenette tucked away with a coffee machine, kettle and toaster. The bathroom is spacious and has a great shower. The bedroom is raised in the room and has the most comfortable bed and a bath set by the window to view the lavender gardens. The pool was great on such a hot day. Despite being a heated pool, it was still very refreshing. Ruth made a beautiful breakfast with muesli, yoghurt, fresh fruit, croissants and juice, which we ate outside. The BnB had nice little touches that made it a truly spectacular night. Our hosts gave us many options for dinner and I'm sure they could give excellent advice on things to do if you need it. Ruth and Barry were such wonderful hosts and we wish we had longer to stay in their lovely BnB and get to know them more!

You’ll be transported to the south of France at this gorgeous property set amid lavender fields and olive trees. With Ruth and Barry as your cordial hosts you will wish you could stay a few extra days.

French Fields might have been the nicest accommodation I've ever had. Ruth, the owner, outdid herself as she offered suggestions for meals (all fabulous) and activities (very wise). She anticipated our needs and made this stay the ultimate end to our 13-day trip. The room was very comfortable and we wanted for nothing.
