Charming cottage, charming host!

Congratulations to Robert for creating a superb experience here! Upon arrival and meeting the charming Robert, we were given a short tour and introduction to the beautifully presented cottage, and a welcoming basket of fruit and vegetables from the garden was a great touch. The tomatoes in particular were fabulous, tasting like tomatoes should!

We spent a fabulous week here exploring Provence and bringing home amazing food from a market each day to prepare in the well appointed kitchen.
The cottage is very peaceful, a very important feature from our point of view, as we live on a quiet farm in Australia and love our peace and quiet.
The friendliness and generosity of our host and also our neighbours was wonderful. Within a couple of hours of our arrival I had met a pair of fellows whilst out walking who were out shooting pigeon - despite my non existant French, and their lack of English, they had enthusiastically offered me pigeon for my dinner within moments!

The cottage is very well placed for exploring Provence, and we did plenty of that! I wish we could have stayed another week in this wondrous area, but that was not to be. I would have no reservations at all in recommending this property as a great base for exporing the region. As a couple, we had ample room, but a small family would be just as comfortable. Wireless internet made all the difference for our research of things to see and do in the region. The local supermarket is only minutes away and has far more than just the essentials.
I also highly recommend visiting the restaurant "MEO" in Tarascon for a fabulous cullinary experience.
We would not hesitate to book this cottage again, and congratulate Robert on his presentation and attention to detail.
Owner's Response: Dear Stephen and Carolyn

Many thanks for your wonderful comments, your recommendation is highly appreciated ! I am glad you had a positive experience of France and very happy to have contributed to your stay. I enjoy meeting people from other countries and it was a great pleasure to meet you and discover your culture.

I do hope to welcome you to Tarascon again this year.

With my very best regards,

R.D.

Perfect relaxing family experience!

We owe our completely expectation-fulfilled, relaxing 1st family holiday with our 21month old daughter to Robert and his picturesque and calm cottage,"Mas Boer"

As chance would have it, we enjoyed 1 beautiful warm day before the notorious and very cold Mistral visited with us, winds topping 60kms/hour and even more in the surrounding Alpilles. The gorgeous clear skies and sunshine did help to compensate though. Very cold outside, nice warm and cosy inside our cottage.

Why was it so good?
- We needed a separate bedroom for our toddler to sleep in, the 2 bedrooms, toilet and shower upstairs made this perfect for us as we could put her down to sleep and not disturb her in the evenings before we ourselves went to bed.
- Newly renovated stone cottage was in a very quiet and rural location, sheep, goats, horses and some cattle across the road. Very calm, very tranquil excellent for taking our toddler out for a walk and seeing the animals.
- Cosy dining room with long wooden table, fully equipped kitchen plus toilet & laundry downstairs.
- Perfectly situation near the local road between Tarascon and Arles which made exploring the Alpilles and small villages and towns around them very enjoyable and easy! Easy access to Arles, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence!
- Robert was a perfect host, there when we needed him for help and advice but never seen. He made excellent suggestions and gave us great tips for the regions.

Recommendations.
- Don't let the surrounds on the drive in passed Tarascon put you off, you wont be disappointed
- Do take your time to visit the villages dotted around, you will be pleasantly surprised eg. we had an awesome lunch at Cafe de la Fontaine in Maussane-les-Alpilles
- Do get out and have croissant and coffee in Beaucaire alongside the boats moored on the canal by Quai du General de Gaulle.

Getting there tip.
Despite the other reviews here, finding it and getting there was easy! Just go to the end of Chemin de la Chevaliere, Tarascon, when the asphalt turns into dirt track (not before!) take the 1st entrance (also the last on your right!) is the one you want! The dirt track is "Draille de la Chevaliere" The cottage is behind the lovely tall tree.

Thank you Robert for your hospitality and making our stay memorable! We will see you again soon.

We loved the house - very well equiped and new! Also it is in a very good location when you want to know other small villages. Robert was very kind and received us very well.
We had a wonderful time at Provence and in the house!

Beste geïnteresseerde vakantieganger, We verbleven een week in deze mooie gîte, en waren bij aankomst blij verrast door de toffe lokatie, de rustige omgeving en de smaakvolle inrichting van ons verblijf. De hartelijke gastheer zorgde er bovendien voor dat we ons onmiddellijk thuis voelden. Hij is oprecht bezorgd over het welzijn van de gasten, en doet al het nodige om het hen naar de zin te maken. Het huisje is fijn ingericht, en de tuin is écht privé. Het terras is met riet en wijnranken overdekt, en is heel aangenaam om te vertoeven, ook bij heel heet weer. Voor de zonnekloppers zijn er heerlijke ligstoelen en een groot zonovergoten grasveld achter het huis. De gas-BBQ is een leuke extra waar wij gretig gebruik van hebben gemaakt. Rondom het domein zijn er enkele weiden met allerlei dieren zoals paarden, stieren, geitjes, struisvogels enz... Je voelt je hier echt 'als god in frankrijk'! Heerlijk om hier even het jachtige leven achter te laten en te genieten... Patricia
