Chambres chez sculpteur au calme: A most charming and hospitable place
This is one of the best place we have stayed in our travels. It is 2 or 3 miles outside St. Remy-de-Provence and is set off the road on lovely and a somewhat secluded lot. Nicole, our hostess, is a very talented sculptor and very cordial. We got to visit with her a bit over breakfast in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The house is a lovely place, our bedroom large and comfortable and the bathroom one of the biggest we have seen in Europe. I can't say enough good things about this place. Breakfast included a fresh fruit bowl with figs from her garden and sprouts she had grown herself, and one morning soft boiled eggs. All this for just a little over $100 per night for two. I give it 5 stars.
Nicole's work has been and continues to be exhibited in various places around southern France. In Antibes we saw some of her work in an exhibition at the main port.
The bathroom is shared by 2 rooms, but there was no one else there when we were and I would guess that this is usually the case. But we would have no problem sharing as our experience is that private homes like this are extremely clean and well attended. It is a little hard to find, but we got close, stopped at a bistrot along the road, called Nicole and she met us about 5 minutes later and led us to her home.

Presbytere Saint Thomas: I'm not sure I want to share this place!
Marie Chantel Gayte is your hostess in this gorgeous spot. Our room was huge, with a sitting area, tv, desk, an "independent toilet" (in it's own little room) and a nice ceramic bath with a deep tub. Madame doesn't speak English, but my French was apparently sufficient. She changed the linens daily AND put fresh flowers both on our table and in the bathroom. I didn't realise they were fresh until the morning...the colors were so extraordinary. And of course, lavender scented the air and linens. When we'd come back after dinner, she had closed the shutters and drawn our drapes and turned down the bed for us. It was so totally quiet, and when the lights went out -- well it was complete darkness! The recharger for my camera battery suddenly seemed like a neon spotlight!
Best of all was the breakfast each morning. Fresh fruit and juice, croissants, baguettes, scones, sweet rolls, home-made preserves, honey, and big pots of cafe and hot milk for cafe au lait. All served in that exquisite garden!
There are only three double rooms, and over the weekend the other two were taken by French couples. No credit cards. We will come back again. Why mess with a perfect match!

It's daunting to recommend a single accommodation for all of La Belle France,
but Le Château de Roussan in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is probably the most evocative,
most ancien regime place we have stayed.
The chateau was built at the beginning of
the 18th century by the Marquis de Ganges on land owned by his ancestor Nostradamus. It's well situated for exploring Provence, but it's in the country so you will want a car.
The photo shows our room overlooking the garden. Very Manon Lescault.
