What their guests say:
“Chantal and Jean-François were the most perfect hosts and made our stay memorable! Their most beautiful property is perfectly Provence. We highly recommend their wonderful property.” ~ Bob and Noelle, Nova Scotia, Canada

“Excellent value. The facilities and rooms are of high quality and the surroundings pretty, quiet and relaxing. Our hosts had excellent knowledge of local food, products, tourist attractions and cultural events, and were pleased to share this information during breakfast. They have a selection of local wines and products to offer guests as well. The location is ideal for accessing the many attractions around Avignon, but you will need a car to conveniently access them. We really enjoyed our stay Chantal & Jean­François, thank you!”

A perfect Provençal holiday: It was a very great pleasure to stay at La Fontaine des Magnerelles. Chantal and Jean-Francois were exceptional hosts, very engaging and always enthusiastic to ensure you had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Both the breakfasts and the “Ardoise du terroir” were delicious, with locally sourced ingredients and everything was very fresh. They also had organic ready to go meals and local wines on site that you could enjoy without having to go out to a restaurant, if the desire to sit by the pool for the afternoon was too enticing. We will certainly return as soon as we can and in the meantime we have lots of wonderful memories to take home with us. ~ Alison , Australia July 2023

If you are in the area, this is the place to stay: Splendid facility in the vicinity of numerous must visit Provence sites.The hosting couple are so nice and going out of their way to let guests feel welcome. The facility is spotless and located in a gorgeous 220 years old house with a beautiful garden. Highly recommended ~ June 2023

Superbe séjour chez Chantal et Jean-françois: Idéalement situées aux portes d’Avignon et des villages perchés du Lubéron, les Chambres d’hôtes sont situées dans une magnifique bâtisse restaurée avec goût, dans un parc arboré avec piscine. Les chambres sont tout confort, il ne manque absolument rien. Chantal et Jean-François sont d’une gentillesse et d’une disponibilité extrême. A ne pas rater, un dîner sur la terrasse préparé par Jean-François, un vrai régal pour les papilles. Tous les mets sont préparés avec des produits locaux. Nous reviendrons nous faire choyer une troisième fois. Une adresse à recommander les yeux fermés. ~ July 2023
