Ray and Stella – Los Angeles, USA Our family had the pleasure of staying at this delightful bed and breakfast for a week in September. Nicole and Gerard are two of the most gracious hosts we have had the pleasure of meeting in our travels. They opened their beautiful house to us in every way. The property is kept beautifully and the rooms are decorated in tasteful and pleasant manner. The breakfasts were truly memorable even though we are still trying to shed the added pounds days after returning! Two of us have gluten-free dietary requirements and we were treated to a feast of sumptuous gluten-free foods in the mornings. Our every need was anticipated and seen to with care. Nicole and Gerard dedicatedly and meticulously helped us plan our days with great suggestions for quaint villages, picturesque routes and great restaurants. We ate very well with their suggestions. Gerard, being an avid hiker, has a pool of knowledge for best hiking spots which we will take advantage of on our next trip. Location is also ideal being centrally located for all our day trips around Provence. We would most definitely recommend this wonderful B&B.

Avec mes 3 enfants, nous avons passé le WE de Paques chez Nicole et Gérard. Nous avons beaucoup aimé cette maison d'hôtes, pour l'accueil chaleureux et la disponibilité des propriétaires, les excellents petits déjeuners préparés par Nicole et Gérard avec beaucoup de soin. Le confort des chambres n'est pas en reste. L'étage est bien aménagé, joli et confortable. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de cette étape et la recommandons sans réserve. Merci à Nicole et Gérard, pour avoir pris le temps de nous renseigner sur la région et pour avoir consacer du temps à notre bien être.

We are from the United States and enjoyed an idyllic four nights with Nicole, Gerard and their cat, Orgeat. The comfort was perfect and the hospitality even better. We did not want to leave. The bedroom and bathroom are not large but they have everything you could want and a beautiful view to the pool, garden and pine forest. Nicole and Gerard spoiled us with delicious and home cooked breakfasts elegantly set in their dining room. They recommended restaurants and booked for us. We especially enjoyed sitting in their private garden and soaking in the environment of Provence. We will definitely return as soon as we can. Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed at Nicole and Gerard's B&B for two nights in September 2013 and enjoyed it very much. The house was beautifully decorated and the room was comfortable and charmingly fitted in the French provincial style. Breakfast was terrific and delicious with lots of homemade pastries. We also loved the tea and wine made of herbs in the garden. The hosts, Nicole and Gerard, were friendly, warm, and delightful in every way. They gave us suggestions on where to visit in Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. We were so glad that we stayed there and loved this place very much. Wish we could have stayed longer. And we definitely would like to return if we visit Southern France in the future! Thank you, Nicole and Gerard!! Sean and Dawn from Taiwan

This is a very nice place to stay. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden with pine trees and local vegetation. The apartments are nicely furnished, confortable and clean. Breakfast is freshly home made, tasty and generous. Nicole and Gerard are wonderful persons and hosts. They treat you warmly and are really available. Nicole gave us a lot of advises on furniture and even took us for a visit to some shops and sellers of antique local furniture. We sincerely recommend staying at their B&B.

Una casa immersa nel verde, un prato curato, una bella vista, buoni profumi e un'atmosfera accogliente, semplice e rilassante: siamo stati davvero soddisfatti del nostro soggiorno! Anche i bambini sono stati bene, grazie agli spazi adatti a loro, alla piscina, ai giochi sia all'aperto che in casa, all'ottima colazione homemade. Le camere sono arredate con gusto, confortevoli, fresche e perfettamente pulite. Davvero non potevamo chiedere di più! Nicole e Gerard, i proprietari, ci hanno accolto con un buon tè caldo e madeleine al profumo di limone. Ci hanno messo a nostro agio e hanno fatto in modo che ci sentissimo davvero come a casa. Con i bambini sono stati affettuosi, simpatici, spontanei. Il prezzo è davvero basso per ciò che offre. Speriamo di tornarci presto! Dimenticavo: comodissimo per visitare Marsiglia. (Federica Alessandro e Agnese)

Nicole and Gérard are very friendly, their home has a nice decoration, and the breakfast is home made, very tasty. You feel like at home in a nice and very convenient location, near Aix-en-Provence, in a forest of pines. We will surely visit them again!

My family and I have spent four pleasant days in France hosted by Nicole and Gerard at Les Pennes Mirabeau. This charming B&B is placed in a beautiful residential site and placid pine forest out of the touristic path; at the same time it allows to easily reach the main attractions of Provence and Camargue. The house is decorated with care and style and the courtesy, kindness and discreteness of our host have been unique together with their gourmand breakfast with home made tasty delights and beautiful table set! My children got mad of Gerard's crepes and we hope to come back during summer time in order to enjoy the garden and the swimming pool!
