Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
Overall, wonderful, totally agree with the other 5 star reviews below.
Our family of 12, 5 adults and 7 kids( ages 9-18 years)stayed here for one week. The house was perfect and exceeded our expectations. It was clean, quiet, spacious, tastefully decorated, with lovely furniture and paintings throughout.
The pictures really don't capture the beauty of the home and gardens.
The master suite is huge but all the other bedrooms are plenty big with en-suite bathrooms. The air-conditioning was a must for us and the washer and dryer was also a plus.
The gardens are gorgeous with multiple outside seating areas, the pool is great, table tennis in the yard and 2 tennis courts across the street.....what more do you need!
The location was exactly what we were looking for.....the small town of Cabrieres d'Avignon is 15 minutes walk away. It has a wonderful butcher( great meats), baker( for the fresh daily baguettes and croissants), and small grocer that seems to carry everything you might need.
We had dinner in town on 2 occasions and it was great to be able to stroll home on the quiet roads under the stars. We put the outdoor grill to good use also.
There are several towns( Gordes ,Roussillon, Isle Sur La Sorgue) within 10-20 minutes drive that are lovely and make time to hit one on market day.
Patrick, the owner was easy to work with; he answered all emails promptly with helpful suggestions for our trip.
Remy and Caroline, the care takers, are fabulous also and they were a great local resource. They prepared a delicious meal for us on our first night.
Overall, fantastic.......one week was too short. We look forward to returning in the future!

A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at this lovely villa! The previous posts have said it all. A huge thank you to Remy and Caroline for taking such good care of us. We were a group of 9 and had plenty of space to stretch out and lots of privacy with ensuite bathrooms in each bedroom. The air conditioning and swimming pool were a blessing in the heat. We enjoyed our morning walks into Cabrieres d'Avignon for croissants, as well as our tennis, petanques and ping pong matches. The grounds are lovely, and we enjoyed our trips to the various villages in the area - so much to see! Our one day wine tour was also a highlight!

We are home now and missing the smells of jasmine and lavender, the fresh produce, incredible wines and cheeses!

Superb House - Much better than expected!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this gorgeous villa with another family for Half-term - end of October 2012. We had the most brilliant week - we were welcomed by Remy and Caroline - a lovely couple who could not do more for us during our stay. The villa is so much more spacious and gorgeous then the photos show - it really is huge but works so well as it is all on one level. It is equipped with everything you could need - even tennis racquets! We made plenty of use of the tennis courts and rented bikes for the week that were delivered to the villa and even had a chef come in and cook supper for us one night. We would love to return soon!

Close to Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, pool and grounds. Great location to explore rest of Luberon. The 5 guest bedrooms (4 in house + pool house) were nicely appointed with ensuite baths. The spacious kitchen was well equipped for our dinner parties. The pool is not heated but Sept weather was warm enough for a few laps and plunges. Wonderful landscaping all around the property, with plenty of gathering spots, ping pong table and petanque. While Gordes is a little too far to walk to, it's an easy 15 min stroll to Cabrieres d'Avignon. Short drive to Coustellet for grocery shopping (although village markets are more fun - Coustellet on Sun, Gordes on Tue); about 1 hour drive to Avignon (due to traffic). Caretakers were super.

2 weeks of "A year in Provence".

We stayed in this wonderful villa together with our close friends and their children. Two families seeking that "Provence experience" and we couldn't have found a better place to stay in.

Turning into a gravel road from the main road we were welcomed into the property by a rustic driveway with a view of olive trees on the left and a vineyard on the right and the smell of lavander from the low bushes surrounding the area.

From outside, the villa had all the charm of the surrounding architecture that you see around the village of Gordes but we were happily surprised to find that the house was equipped with all the modern amenities we were used to. Aiconditioners in every room, all 5 rooms each with its own toilet and bath. TV and video player. Fast internet. Towel heaters for warm and dry towels every shower.

It was still early spring and the temperatures would go down to 12 degrees centigrade at night. It was great having under floor heating which allowed the kids to run around barefoot on the stone floor while their toesies were toasty warm. The living room and the dining room have high ceilings and a raised fireplace was great comfort and ambience during some cold nights.

Our deal was to eat out at least once a day to sample provencal cuisine in Provence. We would walk to a nearby michelin rated restaurant or drive out short distances to surrounding villages like Rocillon, Lourmarin to try out their fare.

But the home cooked meals we're equally sumptuous.

We had a great time shopping at the farmer's markets around the area. (There was at least one market day in one nearby village somewhere). My wife couldn't be held back from buying local produce and trying out recipes from the cookbooks available in the villa. The tomatoes available at the time were the sweetest we had ever tasted. My kids had started to tease me about being "tomato man" because I kept going on and on about the tomatoes.

We were also blessed with 5 days of glorious sunny days. We made good use of the pool and baked in the sun and barbecued by the porch.

Location is central and it was an easy drive to the nearby towns.

We hope to go back next year and make it to Marseilles for an authentic Bouillabaisse.

two great weeks in Provence

  • 5 of 5
We spent two fantastic weeks in this magnificent house. We were greeted upon arrival by the couple who maintain the house and we kept in touch with them throughout our stay. They were very helpful in many ways and speak perfect English. We were three generations (10 of us) and never felt we were on top of each other. The house has a serene Zen energy and is decorated in a simple Indonesian style that is so elegant that one feels at home instantly. We all feel in love with the region and the location was perfect for day trips.
It was very hot and coming back to this oasis was just heaven. The landscape around the house is so beautiful and in harmony with the region.
So much more could be said about how well appointed the kitchen is, or how great it is that every bedroom has a large and comfortable in suite bathroom with shower. How superb the artwork is and how the salt water pool has a shallow area where you can simply float, watch the sky and listen to the cicadas. The windows on the two sides of the main dining room (which is enormous) give a wonderful cross breeze as the temperature cool.
The property is on a small road which is perfect for running or talking walks. The surrounding countryside is simply glorious. The house is private, there is no vis a vis, but not isolated. There are many local markets, one of our favorites was the organic peasant market in Coustellet.
We have been renting homes in France for six years now and this is without question the most lovely house we have rented to date.
