Looking for B&B's in Provence for 80 yr old ladies

I'm trying to help my two 80+ Aunts put together a three week trip to Southern Provence region/Eastern Languedoc in Oct. 07. Would love any suggestions on B&B's for 4 ladies about one week in each B&B. They are planning on renting a car and want smaller, quiet towns. Any ideas very welcome!

Isle sur la Sorge is lovely and quiet except market day and antique Sundays. However I would suggest staying at family owned smaller hotels. They are really more comfortable as a general rule for older tourists. Hotel Les Nevons is very good and has an elevator and parking.

I would suggest
They have wonderful and reasonable places to
stay. Some of them also have meals available.

Your aunts will probably have to lease a car
because of their age. I think it is a little
more reasonable in cost, too.

How wonderful that they are traveling.

We have a two bedroomed villa (with pool)that is available to rent called 'Maison des Amis'. I can provide breakfast and other specific requirements such as meals/transport etc. It is situated in Gordes (Luberon, PROVENCE) which has been named in the top ten most beautiful villages in France. This is the area made famous by Peter Mayle and most recently in the film 'A Good Year' starring Russell Crowe. The scenary is spectacular, the markets wonderful, the restaurants 1st class providing meals made from locally grown produce and excellent value. The surrounding villages include Menerbes,Roussillon,Lacoste,Oppede-le-Vieux,Lourmarin,L'isle sur la Sorgue,Bonnieux.
