Sheila Spencer

Originally British, Sheila has spent most of her life at Les Arnauds. She will take you into her family home and will be able to help you with difficult cultural and restaurant outings.


An Australian shepherd, Leïca is supposed to be a good guard dog and who will greet you with a waging tail asking to be stroked. However, she does not like to share her house with her fellow kind.

They came to Les Arnauds

We stayed a week in Sheila’s wonderful B&B, getting up late because of the peace and quiet, being woken by the rooster one morning! The terrasse bordered by aromatic herbs made me want to write the book I have always wanted to write. Thank you for the delicious breakfasts of tea and coffee and fresh bread, “viennoiseries” and fresh fruit.
Les Arnauds is set on a dreamy, idyllic farm, with an abundance of flowers, verdure and oh! such views! My children and I cherish our memories of playing in the pool and hanging out in the sun, all so "away from it all" and yet so close to Aix.
Merci, Sheila. De pouvoir poser les valises dans un endroit si calme et loin de la ville, ce fut une expérience formidable et re-vivifiante. J’ai pu lézarder au bord de la piscine et visiter la Provence que je connaissais très mal – un vrai plaisir.
