Bed & Breakfast

A kind Anglo-French couple, poolside rooms, valley views, sunrise over the oaks. Hike up to charming village restaurants: pure Provence


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 3


French Myriam and English Alastair, kind helpful hosts, live with exceptional views across the valley and sunrises framed by oak woods in their traditionally styled modern farmhouse, a testament to deft planning. Ground-floor bedrooms spread themselves round a lovely central pool and a walled terrace loaded with pot plants while an airy sitting room provides music, mod cons and reading space. Alastair knows the history of the region off by heart and every path and trail; trek up through the woods to the ridge-perched village of Mimet, with charming restaurants and views to Marseille and the sea.

This is an excellent B&B. My wife & I spent 3 nights in September 2012 and would definitely go back. Myriam & Alastair are fantastic hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the local area. Don't miss the food in the local hotel in Mimet - superb!
