Welcoming, helpful, friendly and roomy. Great value. Delicious breakfast and comfortable bed. I'd happily recommend it to everyone. The owners were particularly practical and helpful concerning my arrival time.

We stayed for one night at Maison\ de la Fontaine. Cessenon is a very charming village between sea and mountains and the b & b was just the same. I will absolutely recommend the Maison de la Fountaine

We turned up a day early but Chris the owner welcomed us and made us feel very much at home. The room was pretty and comfortable and the air-conditioning was much appreciated. Chris made our stay more interesting with advice on places to visit and where to eat and drink well in the surrounding villages.

Nice and cosy B&B situated in a typical French village. Quiet location in the middle of the village. Friendly and kind service by the owners. The rooms, bathrooms and other spaces were so nice decorated - a B&B you dream of. Plentiful breakfest in a genuine and charming kitchen and of course with excellent service.

We agree with you 100% about the dog poo Despite the Mairie providing bags and bins for dog owners, little has improved since we first moved here and we are constantly trying to keep the street free of it. There are large fines but we are unaware if these are ever enforced. Many French people find it very offensive as...

We have stayed here two years ago and Chris and Sue have been outstanding in their helpfulness. Nothing was too much trouble. The room and ensuite was great.Little touches like the library where you leave a book and take a book. They have really thought of everything.
