I stay at Petite Provence almost every December and my favorite room is the Cigale! I loved the "provence" air with my private deck from whence I could view the bird life in the mornings, as well as the breakfasts served by cheerful and caring staff were always an enjoyable start to the day. Home was never like this! Paradise...

My wife and I stayed for a night in the honeymoon suite. We really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the quality the room! I was born in France and this B&B is a perfect reflection of the french Provence. I strongly recommend Petite Provence!

The parking is just a little cramped but still...

The BB is made into an old french villa. A lot of different french stuff around. The kids loved the place because of the old french look.
