Expect a gracious welcome, a fine collection of antiques and flourishing gardens that thrill. A reader writes, 'La Nesquière is perfect!'

The gardens alone are worth the detour: trees and greenery galore, riots of roses, all flourishing in a huge many-terraced park by a river. The 18th-century farmhouse harbours a fine collection of antiques – one of Isabelle's passions – tastefully set off by lush indoor greenery and lovely old carpets on ancient tile floors. Softly old-elegant rooms have hand-embroidered fabrics and genuine old linens, including Provençal quilts – exquisite – with splashes of red, orange and beige against white backgrounds. Themed weekends, too (cookery, wine, embroidery), and a warm, gracious welcome from Isabelle and her family.

"Madame Isabelle de Maintenant was delightful. Very warm and welcoming and when we returned from a fruitless trip to find a restaurant offered us bread, cheeses tomatoes and grapes and some wine within 20 minutes. This we ate in the garden and it was offered and served with such warmth and of course, own produce and very gratefully received by us. Breakfast the following morning was delightful and shared with a couple from Switzerland who were staying there for their fifth visit! Madame saw us off with such warmth and, ensuring our car started and we would certainly go back there and for longer"

"Third visit. Wonderful b&b; s0 friendly. Amazing garden, stunning roses - Monsieur is an expert. Wonderful breakfasts; Best to use SATNAV if you can, as it is not exactly IN Pernes le Fontaines and on a long road. Very Well worth the mini-detour. Lots to see and do around. "

"Our visit to La Nesquiere was the highlight of a wonderful trip. The B&B is a lovely oasis in the countryside, and Isabelle is a fantastic hostess. She gave us a warm welcome, and was extremely helpful with dinner reservations, advice about places to visit in the area, and the most scenic routes to drive. We'll definitely be back..."

"What can I say? La Nesquiere is perfect. You really do feel like you're staying as a guest in a family home, albeit a very, very special one. We stayed in the Edme suite with the children and it was fabulous - in fact, the whole house would not look out of place in one of the many interiors magazines found in there to read. The children loved the cats, dogs and chickens, the games room and swimming pool - and breakfast under the peach tree was idyllic. Something else that is wonderful about La Nesquiere is that there's a communal kitchen with cooking facilities, fridge-freezer etc, so you have all the benefits of B&B accommodation without having to eat out all of the time which, with children in tow, can become very expensive and, sometimes, just too much trouble. I cannot recommend La Nesquiere highly enough - thank you to Sawday's for finding it, and thank you to Isabelle for marvellous hospitality."
