We recently stayed at Les Marronniers for 3 nights as part of a trip to France to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Of the four places we stayed in Paris and southern France, this was our favorite. Michel and Johnny are wonderful hosts who treat everyone staying with them as friends (and yes, they believe in greeting you as friends with the traditional 3 cheek kisses! It was very sweet!). They are attentive, funny, affectionate, helpful, generous, and just terrific. Their home is beautifully decorated, spacious and well appointed. Our room looked out over the garden and pool and the morning sun poured in through the windows. This was the only b & b of the four we stayed at with both a shower and bath tub - a plus for the tub lover!
Breakfasts were ample and good, and Michel keeps a refrigerator stocked with wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks which guests can help themselves to for a modest price after a gratis "welcome" drink (honor system).
The village has no other commercial activity (though Michel says there's a cafe owned by the mayor that is open for a few hours a day - we never found it). You will need to drive to get to restaurants and other activities, but Uzes and many other towns are a short drive away through beautiful countryside.
