I stayed here in September one evening whilst walking along the old pilgrim route to Arles. Arriving tired and with my rucksack I wondered what sort of reception I'd get. The answer was a warm welcome, smiles and laughter, being shown straight up to my room (great rooms) and later some advice on the best routes the following morning. Dinner was everything you hope for in France; great food, friendly service and excellent ambience sitting outside under the shade of the trees. Madame brought forward breakfast half an hour the following morning so I could leave at 7.30 (she wouldn't hear of my departing on a long walk without something to eat) and I was offered a soirée étape (special deal for pilgrims!).
Even without this, excellent accommodation, food, and overall value.
She also serves a great pastis.......
