Unser Urlaub bei Nicole und Gerard

5 on September 22, 2016

Wir haben im August insgesamt 6 Nächte bei Nicole und Gerard verbracht. Es war eine wundervolle Zeit. Schon bei unserer Ankunft waren wir sehr von den Beiden sowie dem schönen Haus angetan. Unser Zimmer war sauber, sehr hübsch eingerichtet und mit allem was man so braucht ausgestattet. Den schönen Pool konnten wir jederzeit nutzen. Im Garten hat uns Nicole auch jeden Morgen unser Frühstück zubereitet, was wirklich ein besonderes Highlight war. Die beiden waren immer bemüht und haben uns auch einige Tipps für Ausflüge und Unternehmungen in der Umgebung gegeben. Alles in Allem würden wir jederzeit wieder dort übernachten. Preis/Leistung war super. Encore merci pour ce moment très sympathique que nous avons passé chez vous, Amelie und Michael

Authenticité et sens de l'accueil

Séjour très apprecié autant par les petits que les grands! Le site sous une pinède est superbe. Les hôtes sont extrêmement accueillantd et sympathiques. Les chambres sont très confortables et décorés avec beaucoup de goût. Enfin le petit-déjeuner fait maison est délicieux! Bref rien ne manque pour un séjour inpubliable! Merci à Nicole et Gérard et nous espérons à une prochaine fois.

Superb hosts, great value, made our French experience!

If you do not take the opportunity to stay here, you will miss the best experience in France. Nicole and Gerard are the sweetest people and gracious hosts. They take care of all your needs. Three of us stayed for four nights in the two rooms. These rooms were clean, quiet, private and roomy. The air conditioning was fantastic. The best part was the breakfast! This is the definition of bed and breakfast. Nicole uses organically grown and purchased food items. She served a type of homemade yogurt that takes 16 hours to make. Gerard made homemade crepes. The coffee! Maps were loaned, our GPS was loaded and advice and ideas on what to do and see. I can't say enough! We feel we have made friends and cannot wait to return to see them sometime. The best experience!

Vacanza da sogno

5 on August 30, 2015

Siamo appena tornati da una settimana di vacanza in Provenza. Abbiamo soggiornato in questo bed and breakfast davvero incantevole, dove si respira un'aria di tranquillità, freschezza e pulizia. La casa è in perfetto stile provenzale, curata con grande gusto in ogni suo particolare, ed abbiamo apprezzato anche rilassarci nel bel giardino con piscina. Nicole e Gerard sono una coppia davvero adorabile e speciale, si sono prodigati in ogni modo per metterci a nostro agio e per darci preziosi consigli sugli itinerari ed i ristoranti. Magnifiche le loro colazioni fatte con passione ed amore. Sicuramente torneremo. Benedetta e Maurizio

Wunderschöner Sommerurlaub in der Provence

5 on August 23, 2015

Wir haben mit unserer dreijährigen Tochter bei Nicole und Gérard 5 wunderschöne und entspannte Tage verbracht. Die Beiden verstanden es, uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abzulesen und versorgten uns mit wertvollen Tipps zur Erkundung der Umgebung. Nicht zu vergessen das exzellente Frühstück, jeden Tag eine neue Überraschung in Form von Obstsalat, Kuchen, Madeleines und vielen anderen Leckereien. Alles selbst gemacht versteht sich. Unsere Tochter hat im Swimmingpool ihre ersten Schwimmzüge gemacht, dank der netten Unterstützung von Nicole und Gerard, die uns ein kleines Boot und Schwimmflügel zur Verfügung stellten. Außerdem durfte sie sich in unserem Zimmer über einen großen Schrank mit Spielsachen freuen. Die Zimmer sind im provencalischen Stil liebevoll dekoriert und in jedem Detail spiegelt sich die Leidenschaft der Gastgeberin für schönes Ambiente und antike, selbst restaurierte Möbel wieder. Kurz und gut, wir hatten einen tollen Sommerurlaub und fühlten uns - wie Gott in Frankreich. Stephanie, Fabian und Emilia

Les "senteurs" du midi

Notre séjour chez Nicole et Gérard a été magnifique : l’ambiance est familiale et relaxante, la maison magnifique et la chambre très « provençale ». Nicole nous a préparé chaque jour un gâteau ou des biscuits faits-maison et Gérard nous a donné des conseils précieux pour nos visites des alentours. Tout était absolument parfait pour nous faire rêver d’y revenir au plut tôt. Merci Nicole et Gérard !!!! Elena et Sergio

A wonderful stay, quiet location with easy access to airport, Les Clairieres was such a find. Beautifully decorated, with a healthy, delicious breakfast served on the patio, the yogurt freshly made was so special. We would love to return and enjoy the great company of Nicole & Gerald that made us feel so at home - Thankyou Roslyn & Dave J Newport, Sydney Australia

Ideale Lage zwischen Marseille und Aix-en-Provence

5 on June 02, 2015

Wir hatten ein schlichtweg perfekt eingerichtetes Zim er mit Blick auf Garten und Pool, endlos ruhig,die überaus nette und informative Betreuung durch Nicole und Gerard war ein Traum, ebenso das Frühstück, teils im Garten, teils im herrlichen Salon eingenommen. Abgeschlossener Parkplatz vor Ort und gute Restaurants in der Umgebung runden den ausgezeichneten Eindruck ab. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen! Mirella und Gerhard

Best kept secret in Provence!

4.8 on October 06, 2014

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.
