“Loved the stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2009

Petite Provence with its french flair is a lovely bed and breakfast. Fanny & Jacque are the most perfect host/hostess and always make you feel most welcome. A home away from home.
A lovely family atmosphere with an excellent breakfast spread each morning. Never the same always that little difference.

Petite Provence is the only accommodation that my husband and myself go to for the past 2 years when visiting Ballito.

What a lovely relaxing holiday! :)

You either write a review because the place was amazing or because it was hopeless, Im so happy to write a glowing review for Petite Provence!

Firstly, Salt Rock is a lovely sleepy 'old' beach town - the perfect place for a lazy sunny beach holiday. It is fairly untouched and still has a quite a bit of natural vegetation, but it is close enough to buzzing Balito & Umhlanga so you get the best of both. Most importantly, it has fantastic beach!

Petite Provence is a very short walk from the beach and is just on the edge of a natural park, lovely setting. The B&B is wonderful! and really exceeded my expectations, the decor was simple & relaxing, but beautiful with an attention to detail. Aircon, DVD player & small fridge in the room - nice extras.

The hosts are friendly & helpful and the breakfasts are superb (kept us going till dinner!), fresh ingredients & nice variety. Price was very good, way cheaper than umhlanga.

Petite Provence is a B&B that has got the basics right and then taken it that extra step to excellence.
