Found this place through Alisdair Sawday (we've never been disappointed with any Sawday recommendations). Delightful B&B on the edge of a pretty village with an excellent (reasonably priced) restaurant auberge. The house is full of old French charm - comfortable bedroom and breakfast is served in a very attractive courtyard garden with wonderful smell of jasmine. Great to have access to a kitchen with fridge. One night we just made ourselves a simple supper of ham, cheese, deli, wine etc and ate in the walled garden. The owner Trish was wonderfully welcoming and we had some lovely chats. Very well placed for the lavender fields and lots of pretty hilltop village. If you're wanting a base in Provence, this would be perfect.
I'm not sure where to begin this review. We spent a week with Trish at the end of July/beginning of August in 2018. The first few days we had temperatures above 100 degrees F, but the thick stone walls and large windows enabled us to sleep well, despite the lack of air conditioning. The room was spacious and well-designed with a comfortable bed and GREAT shower. The kitchen and other public rooms are lovely, especially the delightful courtyard in the back. Trish and her friend Laurent were extremely knowledgeable about the whole region and willing to help us at every turn. Miss Molly (a tiny, tiny, poodle) is utterly adorable. What we appreciated the most however were our interactions with the other guests at breakfast and sharing wine in the evening. Perhaps, we were just lucky that week, but we met such fascinating and friendly people, one of whom was the first cousin of a political figure so famous that I dare not disclose the relative's name. I have only two constructive comments for other guests: (i) if the internet goes down, contact Trish so that she can quickly reset the router; and (ii) if you are staying for more than a few days, ask for fresh towels. All in all, it was our sixth visit to Provence and one of our best.
Lovely stay at this b n b with a lively room , great clean facilities, superb location for cafes, restaurants, walks, cycles and visiting other villages. Canoeing an option that we sadly did not take. Will definitely be back to stay! Thanks
It was wonderful to return to Maison Noel. We were given the recently restored tower room which overlooked the marvelous garden. There is a dressing room connect to the ensuite bath room which made our stay extremely luxurious. Trish and Laurent were wonderful hosts. The even booked our table at the Auberge for the first night of our visit. We went into Ilse sur la Sourge to shop for dinner the next day. Late in the afternoon Laurent and Trish took us to a farmers market and we got the rest of the fixings for dinner. We brought it all back to Maison Noel and had a marvelous feast. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else when I return to Provence..
This home in the quaint village of Langnes is central to so many places to see in Provence. We based our 2 week trip in mid May 2016 from this warm and welcoming B&B. We took the Bell Tower suite and it was roomy and allowed us totally relax. The available guest kitchen and back garden made us to really feel at home. Each morning we had freshly made croissants, hot coffee, cereals, local fruits and dairy products for breakfast.
This beautiful old home is on 3 levels carved out of the side of a hill, which is much of its charm. You will need to navigate stairs, but the rooms and view are well worth the climb.
Hostess Trish made us feel very welcome and is full of information and advice about the area and truly became a friend during our stay. The Village of Langnes is simple yet welcoming and it is a quick 10 minute drive to neighbouring towns which allowed us to experience evening dining and nightlife.
Maison Noel is a gem and highly recommended for a stay in Provence.
