It has taken me a while to write this review...perhaps because I wanted to keep the beauty of this place my secret! We spent 5 weeks travelling Europe and this stay was our favourite.
We stayed here last July (2013) for five nights. Robert and Christiane were wonderful hosts.
We rented a car in Avignon and the directions Christiane gave were easy to follow. The breakfasts were wonderful! Christiane's homemade preserves and yogurt were wonderful and I just couldn't say no to the warm croissants every morning. We were able to try fresh figs Robert picked off the tree each morning.
Christiane was very good about helping with our daily itinerary so we were able to see many of the little, hill towns and experience the area fully. Roussillon is a lovely little town, 5-10 minutes drive away. We ate dinner there every night and were very happy with that. The lavender was in bloom when we first got there but near the end of our stay they began cutting it. The smell was heavenly. We spent some time laying by the pool relaxing but mostly spent our days exploring. There is so much to see.
It was extremely hot while we were there but the rooms were cool and comfortable.
If you get a chance to experience the tables d'hôtes don't miss it! It was a wonderful evening!!!
If I am ever in France again I will be back!!!
