French Myriam and English Alastair, kind helpful hosts, live with exceptional views across the valley and sunrises framed by oak woods in their traditionally styled modern farmhouse, a testament to deft planning. Ground-floor bedrooms spread themselves round a lovely central pool and a walled terrace loaded with pot plants while an airy sitting room provides music, mod cons and reading space. Alastair knows the history of the region off by heart and every path and trail; trek up through the woods to the ridge-perched village of Mimet, with charming restaurants and views to Marseille and the sea.

"This is an excellent B&B. My wife & I spent 3 nights in September 2012 and would definitely go back. Myriam & Alastair are fantastic hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the local area. Don't miss the food in the local hotel in Mimet - superb!"

"Fantastic B & B Beatifully clean and modern,Lovely location. Hosts are very pleasant and helpful. Definately one of the very best B & B's I have visited in over 20 years of regularly visiting France using Sawdays recommended B & B guides. Would certainly recommend and would not hesitate to stay again.worth staying for several nights. I stayed a week."

"Really enjoyed our stay here. Had booked for two nights but ended up staying a week rather than uprooting each night for our intended sightseeing (Aix, Cassis/Calanques,Arles etc..) Peaceful, pretty spot which lived up to Sawday's descriptions. Particularly enjoyed use of kitchen, fixing ourselves something to eat, and then relaxing after a long day out. (Anne and Gavin Potts)"
