We stayed for the second time in Le Temps des Olives in Mouriès. Both stays were very enjoyable. Host and hostess are focussed on making the stay pleasant, cosy but allowing guests to do their thing. Nice rooms and a very good breakfast. Good place to stay to visit the villages and the cities nearby or even to go to... More

My wife and I recently stayed four nights at Mario and Ligia's Le Temp des Olives. It was wonderful. It's like staying at a house of friends that you had not seen in some time.

Beautiful building, located in a lovely, charming, and quiet village. We stayed in a suite with separate sleeping areas. I value a quiet room and I am happy to say that the room was very quiet and peaceful and I was able to make the area in which I slept very dark, which I also enjoy, by closing the shutters.... More
