My husband and I have stayed in so many B&B's before however this was a really unique and personal experience. John and Monique were very welcoming, warm, and friendly. John showed us what we could do each day and set us out on great itineraries with maps, parking details, and helped us find what we were looking for. This was a beautiful part of Provence which seemed slightly less touristy than other parts with very charming villages, beautiful walks, and great markets. John even went out of the way to search for a ferme-auberge meal for us and make us a reservation due to our limited French. Breakfasts were very nice with eggs, bread, cafe au lait, homemade jams and fruit salads by John, cheese, and more. We'd wake up to jazz and other great music played at breakfast. Wood fires in the evening, appertifs occasionally, and John's delicious 'sirop.' Rooms were clean and cozy with the wood beam ceilings and nice decor. They have a lovely garden with an aviary and fish pond, and a summer kitchen that we'd use for making our own meals after shopping at the markets. There was another couple there who come twice a year and have been for the past 10 years. We hope we can too. All in all, we can't recommend staying with John and Monique highly enough. We can't wait to go back.
