Our family group, ranging in age from 51 to 79, stayed for a week with Claudia and Christian at their lovely B & B. This was the second trip for my husband and me, and this time we brought more family. Our hosts could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The location is perfect for touring Provence, with weeks of things to see within an hour or so of relatively easy driving. Each day, Christian helped with suggestions and customized maps, avoiding a lot of traffic and parking hassles. There are lovely quiet roads and lanes in and around Velleron for walking and jogging. The food is amazing, and we could not wait for the daily dinner bell. Claudia is a very talented chef, and her dinners are not to be missed. One treat is a local evening farmers market, and we bought wonderful fruit to add to our morning croissants and coffee. Christian and Claudia even found us a dentist to deal with an emergency on a Saturday morning. We can't wait to return, although I think I have to get the doctor's permission to go over my cholesterol limit again, since we probably ate 10 pounds of cheese each while we were there!
