We are a group of 3 adults and 2 teen age girls, and stayed at Mathilde charming house for 2 nights on our way from Paris to Barcelona. What a wonderful experience it was!
The house is located just outside old town Avignon, in a very good and safe neighborhood that has a village feel. A huge and very good grocery store is a short 5 minutes drive away. The location is perfect if you visit the area by car. Avignon, Nimes, Pont du Gard, Arles, Gordes, and many other attractions are all a short drive away. The house is warm, charming, and comfortable. Too bad we did not have the chance to use the pool, but we can picture ourselves coming back during the summer, cooking up a BBQ meal with inexpensive and great wines from the grocery store while enjoying Provence sunshine in the pool.
Communication with Mathilde was smooth and prompt prior to our arrival. When we arrived at the house, we were greeted by Mathilde with a bottle of wine and a beautiful fruit basket. Mathilde is a wonderful lady and is very accommodating, explaining everything in great details and with patience.
The stay exceeded our expectation!
Our family of four with two teenagers spent a week in late June chez Mathilde. The house was everything we expected and more! First, it's a very convenient location for day trips to different areas of Provence. We visited Arles, Nimes, Aix, Les Baux, and Avignon, of course! There's a huge grocery store just a short drive away, and it's very easy to get around. The house itself is beautifully decorated and Mathilde has thought of everything. When we arrived, we discovered a bottle of wine, fruit, cheese and bread waiting for us. There was enough food for a light supper which was just what we needed after a long day of traveling. We especially appreciated the shopping bags, freezer packs, and wheeled cart since we spent so much time visiting the local markets. The home is comfortable and spacious with beautiful artwork and decor. The pool area is beautifully landscaped with lots of different seating options (sun, shade, table, etc.). And then, there's Mathilde. She is a most gracious hostess, helping out whenever necessary, but not intruding in any way. My husband and son wanted to watch the US-Belgium World Cup game which was on a station we didn't get at the house. She looked into it for us and found out where it was playing, confirmed the time with the bar and then told us how to get there! When we ran into some trouble with our rental car, Mathilde came to our rescue, speaking to the agent in French and helping us sort out the situation. She was a life saver! Mathilde's home was a little oasis where we could truly relax, enjoy ourselves and explore Provence. Thank you, Mathilde!
We would love to go back to Mathilde's French villa someday. It is always a gamble when you rent someplace sight unseen, but we were so happy when we got to Mathilde's in Les Angles outside of Avignon. Mathilde was a delight and so was the villa. There were five of us and it worked out great. We would often pick things up for dinner at the street markets when we were out exploring for the day. The well stocked kitchen was fun to cook in.. The living spaces both insde and out were delightful. We especially like coming home to a cup of tea or a glass of wine and some local cheese by the pool after a busy day of sightseeing. It was a great place to stay in Provence. We loved it and Mathilde.
My husband and I and another couple had the pleasure of staying in this home for 10 days last month (September, 2013). I always do a lot of research before selecting a vacation rental, and the research I did on Mathilde's place certainly paid off. The reviews are right on the money. She is a charming woman, a wonderful hostess and she was very prompt and helpful with all emails prior to our arrival. As described by others, there was a nice dinner in the frig when we arrived, complete with wine. And she surprised us on two other occasions with some gifts of food, including delicious local grapes. The house was very clean and had a great, large dining table that we made ample use of. The table
also doubled as a work space for the laptops and for mapping out our travels.
Avignon itself is a charming city with wonderful shops and restaurants, and we took full advantage of the car we rented by visiting numerous other Provence sites, including Arles, Nimes, Orange, Bories, Pont du Gard, Roussillon, Gigondas, Marseilles (well worth a visit) and Casis. But one of the best parts of our travels was coming back each day to the house and all its comforts. We were blessed with beautiful weather and the pool was still warm enough swim in - I was in almost every day. So, if you are considering a trip to the Avignon area, rest assured that this rental will meet your expectations and more. Merci, Mathilde!
P.S. One word or advice to those renting a car - make sure you have GPS as there are tons of turnarounds all over Provence (almost no traffic signals), and the road signs alone are insufficient to get you were you need to go.
This was the best property we have ever rented in France. Mathilde's home is lovely, comfortable and stylish and warm - we felt welcomed from the moment we arrived to find a meal ready for us and a bottle of wine chilling. It set the tone for a totally relaxing break. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed time in there day and night. Avignon is gorgeous and it was great to be able to get the bus in and not worry about parking or who who drive and not have a drink. It's worth finding the times of buses early on - they are posted by the bus stop at the end of the road so you can plan around them but they go about every half an hour.
We visited the abbey at Senanque and saw the lavender in bloom - Arles was lovely - we went kayaking under the Pont du Garde - well worth it - there is so much to do in and around Avignon.
Thank you so much for a wonderful break.
