We booked in for 3 days in December 2011, facilities was great, but really found the staff and owner very unfriendly. Seemed like the fact that we are not tourist didn't help much. Each morning we had to go and order our own breakfast and the staff could hardly get a smile out. Such a pity when your accomodation is... More

Dear Jessica, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are very sorry your stay didn’t match your expectations. Your stay was actually early January not in December. We thankfully had a record December and were fully booked the entire time, but this took its toll on our employees who were quite exhausted and unfortunately one staff... More

A tranquil atmosphere, a stone's through away from the beach. We slept for two nights and received stunning service to say the least. Every breakfast we were surprised at the variety of food set out to choose from. Served outside with soft piano music filling the air it was a French experience par excellence. We have been to other guest... More

Walking through the gate is like you've left the suburbs behind and have entered an idyllic countryside setting!! Our room was gorgeously decorated and very comfortable with lovely linen,pillows and candles alongside the bath. Lovely lounge facility. A quality delicious breakfast awaited us in the morning. This is as good as it gets!!!

Petite Provence was the first of four B&Bs / guest houses we stayed at over the past two weeks. It is indeed reminiscent of Provence - some rustic charm, antique(d), interesstingly furnished, in need of some refurbishment, beautiful gardens. It was also the most expensive of the four, and the least attractive. Whilst our room was OK (TV a bit... More

Dear dsor, French décor and Provence décor in particular is very specific; our aim is to make your stay as “authentically Provencal” as possible. Being French we have tried our best to recreate the rustic and charming feel of Provence without compromising with comfort. The inspector from The Portfolio Collection stayed in that same room just a few days later... More

I loved the all French "provence" touch, the beach is just a stroll away and the hosts are just fantastic. Will come again.
