Reviewed 13 August 2013

Could not have asked for a better experience, location, or atmosphere in Provence. The house and grounds are beautiful and the location is a perfect sanctuary very close to many of the sights and towns Provence.

Reviewed 15 July 2013

We had a first-class experience at La Cle des Songes.

We stayed here for three nights in early July. After a 6am flight from Dublin, two buses and what seemed like hours walking with our bags along the road (more like 20 minutes), we eventually arrived at the place, which is on a hill above the main Aix-Marseille road. We were slightly worried when we arrived about the proximity to the busy road. Our fears were soon allayed when we climbed the hill to the guesthouse as the sound of cars was barely noticeable. In fact, the crickets made more noise.

At the swimming pool, there deck-chairs were very comfortable, and there is even a bed which I managed to fall asleep on a few times! We stayed in the Aquarius room, which was very thoughfully decorated. It made sense when Roxane (the landlady) explained that she had been a designer before setting up the guesthouse.

The breakfast was substantial. Roxane made us fried eggs and provided fruit salad, ham, cheese, bread, croissants, yogurt and various jams. It was very tasty and was enough to feed a horse!

With any B&B or guesthouse, the most important element is the people running the place. What made La Cle des Songes stand out was the warmth and hospitality of Roxane and Jean-Louis. They went out of their way to help us any time we asked for help, and made us feel extremely welcome.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the region.

We are very pleased that we stayed with Roxanne and Jean Lou in a small town called Bouc Bel -Air. The town is located minutes away from Aix En Provence, which had great markets, quirky shops, and exclusive shopping. We rented a car and enjoyed a bit of exploring, which we strongly advise should you decide to stay at Le Clé des Songes. The rooms were warm, decoration exquisite, and the hosts were lovely. I enjoyed the spa and bar area with my partner, because we felt very comfortable due to the hosts allowing us privacy to chillax and feel at home.

Room Tip: Car Rental Crucial ! Wicked DJ's spin on Friday and Saturday at clubs in Aix !

I spent five days in this guest house really close to Aix en Provence. Hosts were a lovely couple, Roxane and Jean Louis, that gave us a warm welcome. Both friendly and discrete, I particularly enjoyed Jean Louis' tips about sightseeing in the surrounding area. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and nicely furnished. We had great breakfasts on the terrace in front of the garden and swimming pool. We also loved the time we had in the jaccuzi with a chilled glass of champagne. Amazing time! We'd recommend it to anyone looking to explore this nice little corner of France.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Taurus" bedroom which is the largest
