Le Theron was one of our favorite places to stay while in Provence for 10 days. The host warmly welcomed us with an aperitif and advice on the region with much enthusiasm. The salon was replete with eclectic decor from world travels and memories. If you are looking for a unique but traditional home with much character, this is the bed and breakfast (chambres d'hotes) to stay.
We stayed in the Rose room which had a colorful Indian/asian theme that stepped out into the lovely lush garden. The WC was adjacent and the bathroom/washroom was the size of a bedroom (I think they had renovated from previous comments which expressed the bathroom was too small)
The lush garden was multilevel with many little places to relax and read a book in peace. Organic juice, coffee, tead and toast was served with homemade jams and endless choices of honey.
The host was extremely helpful and went out of her way to find us another bed and breakfast the following evening because she was full. This saved us hours of searching. (The area is quite overbooked during vacation time.) We would definitely stay here on our next trip to the south of France and recommend this place to our friends in family.
