We came to Le Temps des Secrets after a hectic month of work and couldn't have found a better place to rest and relax. Nadine is a warm and welcoming host. Whether enjoying breakfast with a lovely vineyard view, lounging poolside in the sun, or enjoying the nearby countryside sites such as Gordes, Le Temps des Secrets offers its guests a perfect place to unwind. The room was clean, had a lovely rain shower and great air conditioning. The property enjoys a nice breeze to cool off the August heat. Guests can make lunch and snacks in the open kitchen, or enjoy Provence rose on the terrace. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for 4 nights at the end of June. We wanted to explore the area after reading Peter Mayles book ' A Year in Provence' and coincidentally Nadines family own the restaurant in the village ' Le Vieux Bistrot' which features in the book.
We arrived to the wonderful sound of the cigale in the trees above and knew we were in the heart of Provence. Nadine welcomes you, shows you around and gives you a control for the electric gates and the outside lights to put on your keyring, she will also recommend places to visit during your stay.
We stayed in the room called Serenity which is adjacent to the kitchen/lounge area, separate from the main house. We liked it because in the morning before breakfast you could just pop next door and make a coffee from the coffee machine. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good, a curtain on the side window would be nice to prevent light coming in and give more privacy. We slept very well.
The B&B is so perfect for exploring the area with Gordes, Rousillon, Menerbes, Bonnieux and so many more attractions so close by. We had a very hot week and it was so nice to swim in the lovely pool at the end of a hot day sight seeing with it's wonderful views over the Luberon. There are plenty of sunbeds and shade if you need it. The great thing is the sun comes up where you have breakfast and sets by the pool. Bliss!
We ate twice at Le Vieux Bistrot. It is a pleasant 15 minutes walk there and Nadine will lend you a torch for the walk back. I have done a separate review for this but if you do get to go I recommend the Cote de Boeuf, it's superb!
Breakfast is from 9am and consists of coffee/tea,orange juice, natural yoghurt, a croissant, a pain au chocolate, homemade jams and french bread. We also had some melon. The breakfast is ok. I do like to have some protein, ie ham, cheese or eggs or maybe some toast or warm croissants but that's fine. It was nice to sit with other visitors and chat about where they had been the previous day and what they had done.
To sum it up we had a wonderful few days at Le Temps de Secrets with the best parts being the location, the pool, an air conditioned room after a hot day sight-seeing and having the use of a kitchen/lounge with your own shelf in the fridge to keep your goodies from the markets and of course your water and wine chilled. This place is so relaxing and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you Nadine and Serg for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: We liked Serenity as it was away from the main house and adjacent to the kitchen/lounge area.

Me and my wife had a very pleasant time at “Le temps”! The landscape is wonderful, the rooms are cozy and well equipped with AC and the very complete breakfasts at the yard are worth many photos! Nadine and Serg were very welcoming and we spent good moments chatting during the breakfast. They were always very available and helpful. When at “Le temps” don’t forget to have lunch or dinner (or both!) at “Le Vieux Bistrot”, which is a pleasant 10 minutes walk from the rooms.
Only “problem”: as the surroundings are so beautiful, we didn’t have time to enjoy the amazing swimming pool! Definitely will use it next time! ;-)

My partner and I spent four nights at Le Temps des Secrets and we just loved it. The setting and views are phenomonal and reflect exactly what one would expect for Provence. We stayed in the Carpe Diem room and it was just like it does in the site photos ... clean, very nicely appointed, and with a lovely and spacious bathroom. The breakfasts were exceptional. Baguettes and croissants, as one would expect, but the additions such as jams, lavendar butter, and homemade fig confiture made it all so special. Nadine, our hostess, was charming, helpful, engaging but never interfering. The location is perfect for daytrips in and around the Vaucluse region. It was so nice to relax by the pool later in the afternoon after our days exploring the region. The only small concern we had is that dogs from other surrounding properties sometimes barked during the night so we had to keep the doors and windows shut during the night. We were cool, however, since the rooms have individually controlled AC units.

Room Tip: We loved the Carpe Diem because it had two sinks in the bathroom. Although the Serenity room is in a building separate from the other three rooms, it adjoins the common kitchen/living room so it may not be as private as you might think. The double beds are queen size.

We have just returned from an amazing two night stay at Le Temps des Secrets (rooms "Tranquilite" et "Harmonie"), and wish we had never left. Tried to extend our stay once we realized what a wonderful spot we had found but, not surprisingly, all of the rooms were booked for the following nights. Nadine was a fun and gracious host with fabulous recommendations for the surrounding area. The rooms were tastefully decorated and extremely clean, and the pool was an added treat! A lovely property, wonderfully situated--only a short drive from Gordes and surrounding villages. Sigh:)
