Overview

Mallemort-De-Provence Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 12 comfortably in 6 king/twin bedrooms 4 ensuites & 2 further bathrooms

An idyllic country house overlooking the magnificent Luberon yet close to historic cities and villages such as Aix, Avignon, St Remy and Cassis. On an exclusive private corner of the prestigious Golf de Pont Royal, tennis,horse riding,golf and many other activities are readily available. The main house comprises 4 public rooms, 2 king and 3 twin bedrooms, 2 further bathrooms and an exquisite kitchen. The independent pool house contains a further ensuite twin bedroom and pool kitchen. The large 33x17ft pool enjoys a sunny position with natural stone walling, a fountain and a delightful garden setting. The villa has many furnished terrace areas, and a first floor balcony. One of only ten large magnificent residences in a secluded corner of the domaine, the open views are stunning.A traditional stone barbeque,an outside dining room, and a huge garage/games room sit amid fully landscaped grounds. High quality local materials of oak,marble,ceramics and forged iron create a special ambiance

The Inside Story 'from the beginning': Designed by award winning local architects and created by skilled local tradesmen Le Chardon d'or (the Golden Thistle) is the perfect holiday venue. Natural stone floor tiling, local ceramics, Italian marble, timber detailing, and forged ironwork, combine with aircon, power showers, underfloor heating, lavish kitchens, and delightful bathrooms to create the perfect combination of old charm and today's exacting standards. On the lower ground floor the poolside lounge houses the wide screen TV, DVD, PlayStation and library of games and films. Turret stairs lead to a fine hall overlooking the sunken salon and dining room separated by a central cheminee, furnished in leather and oak, but most importantly with incredible open views to the Luberon.

The locally crafted kitchen benefits from a full range of Bosch appliances, including the ice and water dispensing American fridge. A king ensuite bedroom sharing the views, and boasting a triple headed shower and WC completes the story so far.

The Inside Story ' part II': ...following the circular stairway upwards brings you to the turret ensuite twin bedroom, looking to the dramatic Vernegues, a few steps more and you reach the level containing 2 further twin bedrooms looking out to the Luberon, a working study with doors to the balcony, the full family bathroom, and the magnificent master suite with windows on three sides, including glazed doors to the spectacular fully furnished balcony.

All bathrooms have extensive tiling, and heated towel rails.

All bedrooms have fine local furnishings, fully fitted wardrobes, crisp bed linen, duvets and deep pillows to create great sleeping environments!

On The Outside: On the 1/2 acre landscaped site entered through imposing iron gates, with an intercom facility to the house for your guests you will find a generous driveway with parking for 4/6 cars. The large garage has been designed as a games room with ping-pong, 8-ball american pool etc. The garden has fabulous views to all sides but none more so than the area housing the fully furnished dining terrace and craftsman built stone BBQ. The house is surrounded by terraces, some covered others open with comfortable exterior furniture.

The pool house has an independent ensuite twin bedroom with TV, and kitchen facilities. The 33x17ft pool has an electric safety cover and is surrounded by natural stone paving, grassed areas with olive trees and a feature dry-stone wall complete with water fountain. The pool can be heated out of season. There are sunloungers, and ample furnishing to relax and enjoy this secluded and sunny spot. In essence its your choice between cool shady corners or the Provencal sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Only room for a few but these are typical of 2005.

“A wonderful property with a fantastic internal and external specification…a great location for a perfect holiday with easy access to all key attractions of Provence ….the privacy and 5 star facilities were exactly what we were looking for…. a lovely golf course with some breathtaking scenery…we did use two of your wines and replaced them identically like for like - it's a great touch to have the wine in the property…. very impressed with your up to date DVD selection - again ideal with a family.

All in all an excellent holiday enjoyed by all - I would be happy to recommend your villa.”



“We have just returned from our two weeks at Le Chardon D'or, having had a truly lovely time. The villa was in a great location, beautifully decorated and furnished, and very comfortable'



“superb location tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of a splendid golf complex-wonderful wines fresh food locally produced azure blue skies.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
If you can find a better rental villa, with the same specs, at the same or even a slightly higher price, *please contact me*. I have been doing my utmost best, and I couldn't...

The house, the pool chairs, the pool itself, the rooms, the power showers, the American fridge, the wireless internet, ... everything is top notch and well maintained. Ideal for 2 or more families. Excellent supermarket, boucherie and boulangerie/patisserie nearby (approx. 5 minutes drive).

Because the villa is located on top of a hill, you will enjoy an almost constant refreshing breeze. At least in August when we stayed there.

It would be very hard to find anything negative about this property. But as I am the world's leading expert in these matters (according to my otherwise lovely wife) I will give you 2 points if you absolutely insist:

The litlle waterfall that drops out of the charming, handbuild stone wall into the magnificent swimming pool is a bit noisy. Some will like this, some won't. The iron gates to the property have to be opened manually. And I'm used to electric gate openers. These are really all the negative (?) points I could come up with after a long and hard think. :)

Do yourself a favour, stop searching and book this villa now, before someone else does.

Owner's Response: An excellent review, we intend to have the flow on the waterfall moderated over the winter, mind you as the reviewer indicates many people love the sound. I am of course very pleased that this group had a fantastic vacation, bookings for next summer are already coming through much earlier than in past years, this review looks certain to increase demand further.

Owner's Response: The villa has been full from May-October and we have been delighted by all clients awarding 5-stars, it has been the venue for 80th birthdays, silver weddings, 21st birthdays and a whole range of celebrations. Large groups really appreciate the space and the wide range of facilities in the grounds.

Exceptional villa and gardens

  • 5 of 5
Superbly designed and equally well furnished and equipped - both inside and out. This property ticks all the boxes and made for a superb venue for two families (11 people) on their annual gathering. Plenty of space and amenities in the villa, likewise in the landscaped gardens and pool area where there is ample opportunity to 'group' or hide yourself away to read or just take in the views.

Tucked away in a small, exclusive development at the edge of a top class golf course complex, you can reach plenty of great places by car or simply stock up and create your own festival of food, wine and relaxation. For those feeling energetic there are the outside boules court along with pool and table tennis in the garage.

Thoroughly recommended.

Owner's Response: I am delighted to have this review, the villa seems to be working very well for larger parties and even with 12 people there it is good to know that both inside and out it never feels busy. We invested heavily in new furnishings, entertainment equipment and technology for this year, I am pleased this is being enjoyed to the full

Wonderful Chardon D'Or

Wonderful Chardon D'Or

This was our second visit. We returned because it is a great venue for a multi-generational holiday despite unseasonably bad weather in 2011. A generous and well organised owner, a comfortable house with great amenities and plenty to do in the region make it a superb destination. Plenty of space for everyone to have some privacy whilst plenty of communal areas - 6 separate outside table and chairs combinations. This year we had all our meals outside. We are not golfers and were anxious about it being in a development but it is very private and self contained and the setup works brilliantly. Not only the children enjoyed the heated pool and table tennis. We would strongly recommend for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: I am delighted to have this review, we added a few things over the winter as reflected in the comments submitted. We look ahead to our busiest ever year with only 3 weeks free between May and late October and also to new and returning guests enjoying the 5 star treatment of Le Chardon dOr.

A Fortnight in Provence....

  • 5 of 5
We and two other families have just returned from your villa, after a wonderfully relaxing stay there. We were blown away by the views, and loved the fact that you felt far away from the resort area, but also had the security of being part of it. The access to the motorway and other areas was quick and easy, and we visited many of the recommended places as well as Uzes, which has a lovely market too.
The house is beautiful, and with 6 teenagers in tow, it was great that there are so many spaces to escape to, and for them to escape from us!! The two lads slept in the pool house, it might be worth noting that you couldn't really put small children down here...you really wouldn't hear them!!
The pool is a great size, everyone enjoyed it, and with blue skies and 35c plus every day, it was very necessary. All the bedrooms were lovely, also great having so many bathrooms, with so many of us! It is a testament to the house that none of us fell out, or had to queue for the loo ever!!!
We cooked a lot, and found the kitchen well equipped, and had many lovely evenings all together around the dining table, and moving outside later to watch the beautiful sunsets....I had no idea the Luberon was so lovely!!
The three Dads enjoyed the 5 day golf package, which is really good value. Kids the tennis and horse-riding and ping-pong tournaments at the villa!
All in all a truly memorable stay in a beautiful home in a fascinating area, thankyou!

Owner's Response: We are of course delighted to have such a positive review of the villa however it is great to read of the appreciation of the wider area and the incredible range of amenities close at hand. I sense that there was some first class golf played! We are committed to maintaining the 5-Star ratings and have already started to plan some winter upgrades. The villa is already filling up for 2012, 9-weeks confirmed a full year in advance is quite unprecedented, we are confident future guests will be equally delighted.

The villa es very well located to visit in less than an hour too many incredibles places: Arles, Avignon, Aix, Marseille, Gordes, Baux...
Andrew, the owner is a perfect gentlemen that take care of you very well.

I am very pleased this group were delighted with the villa and the wider area, we are increasingly finding that guests return again and again there is just so many things to do/places to visit.

With a panorama of views to the Luberon and easy access to the Mediterranean this in a region famous for sun, food, wine, beautiful villages, dramatic landscapes and a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities. The Roman cities of Avignon, Aix, Arles, Nimes and Orange are all just a short drive from the villa, take in the remarkable amphitheatres, palaces, and attractions such as Pont du Gard and Les Baux.

Exceptional wines produced locally, and in the many villages around Chateau neuf du Pape inspire memorable tasting tours. The ' market circuit' rotates around local villages, where you will discover flowers, seafood, fruit, local meats and other delicacies alongside antiques, linens, and provencal arts and crafts.

Sport lovers are well served by golf,walking,climbing,skiing,paragliding,fishing and most other activities.This is

also a gastronomic heaven with an endless supply of fine eating venues from 'simple to michelin', you have 5 restaurants within walking distance

Other Activities: children's clubs, kids farm, drama etc

Golf: The villa sits on Golf de Pont Royal, one of Southern France's most highly rated and celebrated venues. A fully stocked pro-shop, and 5 star clubhouse serves excellent food all day, it also has one of the most extensive wine cellars in the region.

A challenging and breathtakingly beautiful course maintained to the highest standard, visitors are welcome throughout the year. In mid October Pont Royal plays host to the Masters event, for professional golfers, welcoming European tour pros.

Provence and the French Riviera offers many excellent golf clubs almost all welcome non-members, many of which are less than one hour from the villa. We recommend the Provence Golf Pass which offers a great value way to play the regions best and most spectacular courses, full details on request.
