We rarely leave reviews, and it took some time to write this one, but we felt compelled to say something this time. We are fortunate to be able to travel often to France and Italy, so this review comes with a fair bit of comparison. By every measure, this was one of the most enjoyable bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed at. Melanie and Adrian are very warm and welcoming and our two young daughters (aged 5 and 9) were fortunate that Léa and Zenon were also there to keep them company and let them feed the turtles.

The rooms and the house are very beautiful. We stayed in the Blanche de Peyssac, a very large room, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated, with a claw foot bathtub, skylights and more than enough space for the four of us. The linen was very fine, clean and comfortable, and there were enough towels for everyone.

Breakfast is served on the patio overlooking the fountain, the portions are very generous and prepared fresh. We started our stay served breakfast by Garret, a fellow Canadian and a fantastic host, that spoiled the children with his freshly prepared and finely cut fruit salad. The cheese and cold cuts were delicious and ample and all of the bread was baked freshly in the kitchen. The second week Adrian took over, regaling us with his stories, dry sense of humor and equally gracious company.

The grounds are very beautiful and well maintained and the old stone house overlooks a lavender field. There were two beautiful patios upon which our hosts offered us an aperitif each night before dinner. While my wife and I enjoyed the beautiful gardens, very tastefully decorated with many spots for an intimate conversation, by far the biggest hit for our daughters were the large, well-kept pool and the Jacuzzi. Although we were the only guests at that time with children we were never made to feel uncomfortable or that our children were unwelcome.

We really recommend that you opt in for the dinners at the B&B. We met a fantastic group of travelers from all parts of Europe, and were treated to an excellent dinner cooked by Melanie and Adrian. We all equally enjoyed the hospitality and all of us ended up talking late into the night, with our hosts. They were most gracious with our girls as well, who were elated with all of the attention.

Our stay was by far one of the most enjoyable we have had and we will definitely be back soon.

My wife and I have just spent a few nights at le Pre de l'Aube. Melanie and Adrian could not have been more welcoming or accommodating in every way. Our room (Belle du Prin) was very comfortable (forming part of a larger self-catering suite for those who might want it). The location was beautiful, with lavender fields all around, good walking right from the property and a lovely swimming pool to relax in afterwards. Melanie will make excellent dinners on request and nothing is too much trouble. We lost count of how many languages she and Adrian speak, so communication is unlikely to be problem. Definitely a place to go back to.

Dearest Michael & Sharon, We are so touched by your comments and we are thrilled to know that your stay with us was a such a pleasant experience. It was our absolute pleasure to have you with us in our little paradise. It is always an immense delight for us to share our passion with our guests, especially when we can enjoy a special moment together during dinner. We would be overjoyed to have you stay with us again. Know that we are open all year round, and if ever you desire a new experience, there are multiple events built around truffles during the winter months here in our area. Winter evenings in front the fire place while discovering a new wine from the region are very irresistable. Wishing you all the best, Melanie, Adrian, & Garrett

I came to "Le pré de l'Aube" to visit the region and was absolutely delighted.
I was welcomed in such a way it felt like family, Melanie, Adrian and Lea were so kind and generous, ready to help and serve at every occasion I needed it. When I needed ideas on what to do, they came up with many different places around that were worth the shot. Melanie is also an amazing chef and the food I ate there was one of the best I had.
The place itself is a stunning panorama of quiet, peace and beautiful garden with a lovely fake sheep family. In the midst of all that the house is a beautiful monument of the old architecture of the region built with stones that keep the heat away during the hot days of summer. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable I slept like a baby. The pool is another alternative to the heat and for the chilly night, the jacuzzi is always available.
In short, I had an amazing time, met lovely people, ate and slept so well I'm definitely coming back next year.
Thank you so much to all of you, you made my weekend.
Jp

Our last minute decision to spend a weekend at Le Pré de L'aube, lead to one of the most heavenly lodging experiences we ever had.
Where to start... Melanie is a wonderful hostess, she made us feel very comfortable and at home. With her exquisite taste, she created a masterpiece. Even in the smallest details her handwriting is visible.
The beds are comfortable, the linen wonderful. The decoration well chosen and stunning. There are enough towels of an excellent quality. Everything is impeccably clean.

The guests are welcome to use the sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool.

The location is quiet and cozy on one of the hills of the stunning upper Provence. We slept like babies, and enjoyed the reclusion of early February with almost no other tourists in the whole region.

The breakfast is served in a lovely dining room, again with all the right details... The breakfast itself brings you to Cockaigne: Croissants, Pain au chocolat, all sorts of bread, local cheese and ham, fruit salad, fresh fruit juice, a dozen local jams, honey, french toast, sheep milk yogurt, apple sauce, dozens of teas, coffee, milk.... the second morning Melanie served a wonderful stuffed papaya.... hmmmm

What shall I say, I'm rarely this praising, but you can't leave here but happy and longing to write a review to show the appreciation for all the work that was done to please you as a guest.

We will be back!!! The value for money is just perfect!

We only stayed one night here, and wished it had been more. Philippe, the previous owner (who was staying until the end of the year), and the new owner Melanie could not have been more charming. We arrived after a long drive from Calais, and Melanie invited us for a drink on the terrace with some of their friends and another couple of Swiss guests. We had champagne and canapés, and Melanie organised a great restaurant for us which was perfect as we didn't know the area, and it relieved us of the having to find somewhere. The decor is incredibly tasteful and the surroundings with the lavender fields are beautiful. The pool area looked lovely, although sadly, we didn't get to use it. We asked for breakfast a bit earlier than advertised, but both Melanie and Philippe were up and had prepared a beautiful breakfast on the terrace for us - it really was stunning, and their kindness and efficiency were overwhelming. Melanie even made us a little picnic baggie for our journey to the Alps! We will be back for a longer visit next time - highly recommended!
