This is a truly magic place, set in a country field, with the white horses and the bulls of the Camargue surrounding the property. The owner found much of her furnishings in Indonesia, and her taste is impeccable. We stayed in the room La Flambayante, and the bed was a comfortable dream out of The Arabian Nights. We actually were sung to sleep every night by a nightingale outside the window. The adjoining bathroom was by far the nicest I have ever had in a B and B (or Chambre d'Hôte). The owner is charming and will give you wonderful recommendations for eating in town, a ten minute drive away down a dirt road. When I failed to remember to bring sufficient cash for the room, she actually said I could arrange payment once I had returned to the United States. Fortunately, I was able to arrange payment before we left. I simply cannot recommend this place highly enough.
