In French the word 'at home' does not exist.; rather, 'chez nous' describes this feeling of being at home, of having arrived and being around friends and family. On the plateau de Quinson where La Vudèle, our century-old farmhouse, is located time passes at a different pace: more slowly, more consciously, making one feel at home.
chambre d'hôtes / Bed & Breakfast The guest bedroom - "La Suite" - is a spacious double room with a queen-sized bed (1.60 x 2 m) and en-suite bathroom, added in 2012. The bed is dressed with certified organic cotton sheets as are the pillows and comforter. The mattress was chosen for its natural material, latex. The en-suite bathroom with walk-in Italian shower is spacious plus a sink area with ecological faucet and separate eco-friendly toilet. The ecological wall paint and the local building materials were chosen to reflect the atmosphere of this area and the style of this old farmhouse. The guest bedroom is located on the first floor of the house, overlooking the garden and lavender fields; separate access along the outside stairs allows for complete privacy. Since 2022 I added an above ground pool also to be used by my guests. € 95/double bedroom, per night, including extensive organic breakfast chambre double, par nuit, petit-déjeuner copieux inclus check-in 15h-19h, check-out 10h
We also offer table d'hôtes, a 3-course dinner, Saturdays and Wednesdays or upon request Please show your interest at the time of booking as everything is prepared fresh!

The fresh and copious vegetarian breakfast is served at the table, in the summer either in the garden, under our vast mulberry tree or, in the colder months inside in our traditional farmhouse kitchen, next to a crackling fire. To make this experience even more personal we remain at your service throughout to replenish whatever is needed. The breakfast includes but is not limited to ~ homemade sourdough bread, freshly baked every morning ~ organic free-to-roam eggs from happy chickens from La Ferme du Crapaud in Riez ~ Jim's freshly squeezed orange juice ~ homemade organic jams & nut butters ~ various delicious honey from Felicia in La-Palud-du-Verdon ~ organic loose black, green or herbal tea ~ tasty coffee, each cup freshly brewed ~ soy yogurt ~ oat or rice milk and whatever else is available and in season in terms of fruit and other delicacies
For stays of 3 nights or more we prepare crepes made fresh with organic flour and soy/oat milk, pain perdu or French Toast or any other delicacy we can think of. Here a blog entry of our guest Solli describing the breakfast at La Vudèle
We suggest your arrival to be between 17:00 and 19:00 so you still have time for a walk along the fields, to sit in the garden and to enjoy the sunset. If you think you will be arriving later or are delayed please do call us to let us know. We do not accept dogs on the premises.
We serve breakfast with freshly baked sourdough bread at 8:30, to give our guests enough time to have a lie-in and get ready for the day ahead. Thank you for respecting our check-out time of 10:00 so that we can prepare the room for your fellow travelers.
We ask for 50% of the total to reserve the room. You can pay via Paypal or transfer into our French bank account. Once we have received your payment we will send a confirmation.
