Lets list it......taking delivery of 3 lots of luggage before we arrived, enabling us to do tax returns on your laptop (got to be a first) & just genuinely nice people.
Unsure if we will get back to this part of the world, but thanks for the memories.

Thank you so much for making my stay in your beautiful Bed & Breakfast such a wonderful experience. From the moment I arrived, I felt at home.

I will be highly recommending your place to anyone I know travelling southern France.

Many thanks,

I came across Maison de la Fontaine online after endless searching for a decent place to stay and I am so glad I found it! Situated in the middle of a stunning village complete with a charming local pub, beautiful views, friendly locals and the most amazing patisserie I have ever experienced! Chris and Susan have created a tranquil and enchanting haven and made me feel at home straight away, I loved the company, the gorgeous accommodation and..well everything really! I would definitely recommend a stay here any time of year. Thanks so much to you both!

Kelly Jackson, 

What a welcoming, friendly and elegant place to stay. I was not on holiday, rather in a stressed out state, selling my house here and moving out and under the weather. Susan & CHris provided a sanctuary and made me feel completely at home. Heartfelt thanks to you both.

A truly lovely stay. Excellent accommodation, very comfortable bed, fab bathroom - what more can we say? Oh yes - the host! Chris and Dude were so helpful, charming and sociable.
