Cheval Blanc in Provence

My second year living in Paris, my mother and I took a wonderful trip from Paris to Provence in March.  We stayed in the adorable B&B, Mas Pomona, in Cheval Blanc.  It is run by husband-and-wife couple, David and Marianne, who are the most wonderful hosts.

Almost every evening we would have fresh olives, tomatoes, a baguette, and local cheeses bought from the town grocer.  We would eat in the living room where David and Marianne had a fire waiting for us every night.  In the morning we would have the dining room to ourselves and there was always tea, fresh croissants, jams and orange juice waiting for us.
As we were there in the off-season, we were lucky enough to be the only guests at the time and on the last night, David and Marianne were so kind as to invite us to their anniversary dinner at the unassuming yet superb restaurant down the street, L'Auberge de Cheval Blanc. It started off with Kir Royal apertifs in the courtyard and continued in the dining room with a five-course meal and live music.  By the end of the 5-hour long meal, our hosts were serenading the restaurant with the band.  It really was a night to remember.
