We stayed in the guesthouse for 7 days on October. Georgia is a wonderful hostess. She and Rashida prepared delicious french breakfast for us every day. Georgia sat with us every morning to help us plan our day, she even made reservation for our evening meals. The guest house was very comfortable and the summer kitchen very convenient. The property is beautiful!! We look for to going back soon.

I read about Georgia's B& B in 2005 and dreamed of staying here. It was a dream come true. The grounds with lavender, roses and hydrangeas make a heavenly garden. The rooms are a beautiful sanctuary. Georgia is the perfect host. The breakfast is incredible. We walked into town along the canal and it was a true representation of a country walk into Pernes-les-Fountaines. I highly recommend staying here. You will be in heaven. .

We used Le Lavandin as a base from which to explore Provence for 4 nights. Like all the other reviewers on this page, we wish we could have spent more time in the relaxing peace of Le Lavandin. Georgia, the owner, accommodated us sweetly and politely both in the reservation process and as our hostess. She greeted us each morning with a fabulous breakfast prepared by her cook, Rashida -- the pastries were always uniquely exquisite, and Rashida prepared fresh fruit from the local markets in a beautiful way. Georgia was very accommodating of dietary requests. The room was spacious and comfortable -- or as comfortable as one can expect in July -- the heat was a little more than comfortable, but the guest house was equipped with working windows and shutters; once Georgia explained how to keep the room cool by closing only the shutters at night, we were comfortable. But that is part of the experience of being in Provence, along with the narrow roads, and the unfamiliar road signage, and that is why we want to explore places like Provence. Everyone in the adjoining towns seems to know Georgia and she can make reservations at places like Cote Jardin in Pernes-des-Fontaines (which we recommend as well). On one occasion, we were coming back relatively late, and we called Georgia for a restaurant recommendation. She immediately gave us two, one of which we used, and told us just to use her name and to tell the restaurant it was too late to make a reservation. It worked! We also explored the street market in L'Isle sur-la-Sorgue, which is about 10 to 15 minutes away, and she even knew some of the relevant street vendors. An important friend to have in Provence. A Dutch couple with children stayed with us while we were there and we were astonished at how well Georgia handled the children (they had been coming back annually since before their children were born), and how well she remembers all the details about her guests. Georgia recommended places to see that we would probably not have seen -- where to find the best lavender fields, a small hike to a very interesting source of the Sourge River (unbelievable), and a couple of places to avoid. For the price of the room, you get the best concierge you could want in Provence.

My husband and I stayed with Georgia for two days and wish it had been many more. Providing such a respite from the rigors of travel, Georgia is an engaging, helpful, nurturing proprietress and hostess. We entered her world and felt immediately her grace and warmth in every single detail, from the intoxicating fragrance of the lavender, to the smallest touches of soaps and lotions to the incredibly bounteous breakfast. The room was large and comfortable; the bed king sized with luscious sheets and pillows, the shower made you want to linger, the outdoor private patio provided just the right mix of comfort and solitude. Best of all were the walks around the garden, early morning to late evening, to witness the work of art Georgia has created with her garden and to feel so connected to the natural world and to the bees and butterflies buzzing around the lavender. We are hoping to be able to return many more times.

My husband and I stayed with Georgia four nights this month and loved every second we were with her at Le Lavandin. As many other former guests have written, Georgia Perrin has created an extraordinary bed and breakfast in the Vaucluse region of Provence. The house for guests is a structure Georgia remodeled based upon the framework of an older building that was part of the property at the time she purchased it. However, what she designed and furnished is absolutely modern, a structure reminiscent of a small chateau in its outside appearance, with four spacious rooms--plus there's a studio, all decorated beautifully, in neutral colors and appointed with furniture that harkens back to the French neoclassical era, also in neutral tones. The beds are quite comfortable, electrical outlets are plentiful--she graciously provides travelers with an adapter and a flashlight in each room, and the bathrooms are, likewise, spacious and elegantly furnished. Each room has either a large balcony, big enough for lounge chairs, if you are on the second floor, or a patio, if you stay in a ground-floor room. In short, you can relax just outside your room, if you choose, in a private space. And if you decide you would rather look at the countryside or read outside, there are at least ten places throughout Georgia's gardens where you could do so. If the weather is inclement, there's also a wonderful salon on the first floor with comfy couches and loads of books on Provence, just in case you haven't read-up on it before you landed there. One of the most beautiful aspects of Le Lavandin is the landscaping. The gardens! They are beyond compare! They reflect the natural landscape of Provence, with stretches of lavender, as well as Georgia's American roots, as seen in the graceful hydrangeas that decorate the several pathways that lead throughout the property, for example. There's also a koi pond right at the entrance to the path that leads to the guest house, as well as a meditation maze. The pool area is another highlight of the landscape of Le Lavandin. It's quite sizable, big enough for doing laps to work off the excellent breakfasts Georgia and her helper, Rashida, prepare and serve. My husband could have spent every minute there in the pool. We also enjoyed another feature of Georgia's property, the "summer kitchen", a room--part of the original structure, so attached to the guest house, closed on three sides, but open to the elements on one side, where guests can store food stuffs in a small refrigerator, grill foods purchased from the many wonderful purveyors in the area around Le Lavandin, and prepare light meals, such as a salad. We used it extensively, enjoying a salad, bread, cheese, and wine at lunch. Another big plus for travelers like us, people who were on the road for about a month, Georgia has installed a washing machine in the summer kitchen for guests to use! How nice it was to wash our clothes there, then hang them on the line in the space she calls "the zen center" behind her house. (She and I agreed that hanging clothes out to dry is a good exercise in meditation.) Georgia is an excellent host in every way. She's terrific at pointing out attractions in the area, providing maps to help you get there, suggesting restaurants or markets for food, and booking reservations for lunch, dinner, or even a massage. And, need I mention, the breakfast is delicious! She was more than willing to accommodate my needs for low-sugar breakfasts (I marked 50 years as an insulin-dependent diabetic this year) and my sweet husband's allergies to all kinds of usual breakfast fare, such as wheat and oats, so no bread or granola for him. Very generous, indeed! As a gift for staying at Le Lavandin, Georgia presented us with a bottle of wine from Chateau La Coste, which was VERY welcomed and delicious, of course! Le Lavandin is extraordinary in every way . . . a true reflection of its warm, generous creator, a woman of vision, wit, and grace, someone with high standards and excellent taste. You will never be sorry you stayed at Le Lavandin. Quite the opposite! You'll be counting your pennies and the days until you can return again. Merci, Georgia! Vous êtes vraiment exceptionnel!

We were lucky enough to be able to spend 2 weeks in the lovely inn Georgia Perrin has developed in Provence. From the fabulous breakfasts served on the patio to hours lazed away reading in one of the garden niches, each day was a delight. As a host, Georgia was amazing -- she always had suggestions of places to go and was more than willing to make dinner reservations at local restaurants. We couldn't have found a better place for an amazing French countryside vacation.

Le Lavandin is about the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Georgia is an incredible host...her breakfasts on the outdoor patio are fabulous and different every day. She also personally sets ups reservations for you at the absolute finest restaurants in the area. She has printed maps to get to everywhere you want to go and will offer advice on places. The rooms are terrific and the grounds are simply wonderful. This is a little out of the way which makes it even a better place to stay. It is quiet and clean.

Le Lavandin is run by an American hands-on host who couldn't be more helpful. It's a beautiful relaxing atmosphere with a pool and fantastic breakfast. Georgia will make dinner reservations for you and offer suggestions of where to visit in the region. Rooms are very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Le Lavandin was recommended to us by a friend and it was even better than what she said it woudl be. he property is truly fantastic, filled with lavender, roses, many flowering bushes, gorgeous trees, a swimming pool, a fountain, and a a labyrinth. We walked the peaceful property every day. From the property you can walk along a canal to the village or bike and she has those for you as well. The other great thing about this property is how convenient it is to everything in the region.We had planned to stay four nights, but we liked it so much we decided to spend our entire time at this heavenly place. Our room was lovely and spacious with a large living area, huge terrace and summer kitchen. She has books, bikes, a grill and you can do your laundry if you are having an extended stay. Georgia, the owner, went out of her way to make this visit special. Maybe one of the most special things about the experience was having Georgia take such good care of us. She initiated some very special experiences for us, suggesting dinner at a lovely vineyard (amazing), made lunch reservations for us at fantastic restaurants, and shared information about the markets and things both to see and skip. Georgia gave us maps and sent us off with a delicious homemade breakfast every morning. Perhaps the only problem is that you might be tempted to stay at Le Lavandin and not see all of the other beautiful things in Provence. We recommend this place without reservation. Don't miss this one!

I'll start my review by saying that my husband and I try not to repeat trips. We like to try new places, new cities every year! And this B&B, Le Lavandin, is so good, that it keeps us coming back! We love it here! This is our second time here! There is just something in the air that makes you feel serene, relaxed and peaceful! The B&B is just immaculate. Georgia, the owner, has impeccable taste! The furnishings are beautiful! And then there's breakfast! The breakfasts are exquisite! The detail that she puts in giving you homemade breads, jams, parfaits, etc. Just delicious! The location is superb! Easily 30-45 minutes from just about every important town worth visiting in the Provence Area. The location is really unbeatable! But the one thing that keeps you returning is that it just feels like home! You feel like family returning home from a day of sightseeing! Georgia takes care of you in such a way that it's just so welcoming and inviting. I absolutely love it here! I can't praise this B&B enough.
