Impressive home with so much character!

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I stayed in this property, and were absolutely in love with all its charm and interesting features. We were very comfortable in the home, and it was well-located for day trips to Provence and the Riviera.

The home is located on a pedestrian road near the small town's main square and church. We were able to unload our luggage nearby, but walked about 5 minutes to the public lot where we could park. We were always luckily able to find the last spot! The town of Pelissanne is small and the nearby area has a couple of bars/cafes and basic shops- the small produce shop around the corner has wonderful fruits and vegetables, and a great bakery a block away opens very early, perfect for picking up breakfast.

We had bad luck with the restaurants in town being closed, so we cooked in the beautiful (well-stocked) kitchen and ate on the patios for some meals. The courtyard and roof were nice places to sit with coffee or wine, and enjoy the summer mornings and nights. Be aware, the impressive stone spiral staircase is a bit treacherous for kids or older guests. And be careful if you are tall, as the doorways aren't!

We slept with the doors and windows open for air, which caused a bit of a wind-tunnel in the house one night (slamming doors and windows, spooky!). It was sort of warm without them open, and some fans would be a nice addition, especially for summer. Also, the stone streets echo all the neighborhood noise, but fortunately they were only a problem one night. The church bells were a natural alarm clock at 7am, and the rooftop is a perfect place to watch the bird circle the bell-tower at dawn and dusk.

Yvette, the housekeeper, checked us in and gave us a thorough run-down of the home (only in French, so it was fun to try to communicate with the help of dictionaries!) During our 4 nights there, she went far and above to make our stay as perfect as possible, and we were very, very thankful for her kindness. A storm had knocked out the wifi, and she would not rest until it was resolved! She was truly an angel in so many ways. Thank you!!

We day-tripped to Gordes, Nice, Orange, and Avignon from our base in Pelissanne, and we found it very convenient. On our last night, Yvette told us about a medieval festival in nearby Salon. I would love to visit in July during the other festivals, advertised around town! We had a great adventure full of stories in this home! It is beautiful and so fun to explore all the rooms!

Small Town France

  • 5 of 5
We were three couples who rented the house as a base for exploring Provence, our first visit to France Sud. The home has true medieval character, with parts from the 12th and 14th centuries. The amazing stone arches and stone spiral staircase make it feel as though you have stepped back in time. There was plenty of space to spread out. All 3 bedrooms are spacious with nicely modern bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The kitchen is roomy with a table and chairs where we ate all but one meal, as it is more convenient than the beautiful dining room across the entry foyer. The kitchen has all modern appliances and is well equipped except for no large knife other than the bread knife. As we were here in the fall, temperature control was no issue, although the heavy stone walls should keep it cool in summer.
We took day trips most of every day, after breakfast with pastries from the local boulangerie which opens at 6 AM. The baker was most friendly and asked a lot of questions about our home and occupations. We found the local people to be pleasant and helpful. There is no parking at the house, but the free public lot is a very short walk and we never failed to find a spot to park there. There is a small courtyard steps from the house where you can load and unload before parking your car.
There are several cafes and restaurants, a grocery store, and three boulangeries within a five minute walk. Do not miss visiting the local church, just steps from the house and gorgeous inside; it was a surprise to us to find such a large and lovely church in a small town. The central parklike area fronting the church, with its plane trees, is charming, with several cafes. Lou's has fabulous moules on Fridays.
We loved the house and Pelissanne, and the rental cost was a real bargain for the space and character of the home. Both Mme Rames, the owner who handled all the arrangements by email, and the caretakers Betty and Paul, all were friendly and pleasant to deal with.You cannot go wrong by renting #1 Rue Bassac

Nice base in Provence

  • 4 of 5
It was nice to come back to our quiet village of Pelissanne after our days out and about in Provence. The home is tucked away in the oldest part of town, on one of the charming medieval lanes behind the church. It’s possible to park a few feet from the door to load/unload luggage, groceries, etc, and then the free parking lot is only a 5-minute walk through town.

The home is quite large, with three levels, plus a roof terrace up another half level. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, which was nice. The kitchen was quite large.

The best part about this home is its history. Parts of it date to the 12th century and various augmentations date through the middle ages. Just walking through the house you can see where things were added or subtracted, doors added or removed. Many of the passages between rooms required me to duck, and I am only 5’9”. I found this kind of charming, except for the two or three times I forgot to duck. A tall person might find this a challenging house to get around in.

For such a nice home, I was surprised that some of the furniture was a bit ragged. The airflow through the house was reasonably good with all the windows open, but after a cat jumped from a neighboring roof into the house through one of the open windows late one night, we were reluctant to open some of them, which made it a little stuffy.

On balance, the house was comfortable, and the charm and location were outstanding.

Owner's Response: Les meubles de notre maison sont des meubles anciens (époque Louis-Philippe) ou des éléments contemporains, tous en excellent état. Seul, un vieux fauteuil dans la bibliothèque accuse son âge : mais c'est un vieux souvenir de famille auquel je tiens !

A fantastic stay - a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a fantastic holiday in Pelissanne. Claudine was really helpful throughout the booking process and we received a very warm welcome from Frédérique who helped explain all we needed to know about the house and took us for a walk around the village to find safe places to park.
The house was gorgeous and really well equipped - there was just so much room and everything we could possibly need was provided. We enjoyed sunny breakfasts on the roof terrace with its lovely views across the village - and tried baguettes and pastries from most of the local boulangeries.
The Sunday market can be highly recommended and Pelissanne provided a great base for exploring Provence and the coast. We'd definitely return for another stay. Thank you!

Wonderful stay in Pelissane July 2011

  • 5 of 5
This house was a wonderful find for our Canadian family. The accommodations having 3 bedrooms allowed our teenagers each some space. We loved the architecture and found the home very cool and comfortable. The kitchen is large an spacious as is the dining room and living room. The owners allowed us use of their internet. There is ample parking with in walking distance of the home, but you can drop off your luggage at the door. We loved the 3 balconies and had dinner on the roof top one night. There is a large farmers market in town on Sunday mornings worth going too. The location is great for day trips traveling in southern France. This is a wonderful home, I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Elegant Modern Home in a Medieval Setting

  • 4 of 5
Our party of three stayed four nights in this spacious, beautifully appointed ,and well maintained home. The house has a well equipped kitchen that should satisfy serious chefs. The bathrooms are modern and large. The owners have placed works of art and lovely furniture throughout the house The interior is an incredible blend of modern design and ancient construction. The house is located inside a walled part of the old town which gives it added intrigue. However, just steps away you will find friendly shops, restaurants, bars, and a wonderful public park.

The owner's local agent was very efficient and helpful in explaining the details of the house and orienting us to the neighborhood. Because of the narrowness of the streets in the immediate vicinity of the house cars must be parked in one of several lots that are located outside the wall. However, there is a place just a few yards from the entrance to the house where you can briefly park for unloading and loading your vehicle. The owner's agent helped us with our luggage upon arrival and departure and showed us how to get to and from the nearby parking lots which were no more than a five minute walk away.

We used Pelissanne as our base for day trips into the surrounding environs. Aix, Avignon, Arles, and St. Remy were easily reached in drives of an hour or so. We loved the convenience of being so centrally located near popular tourist sites while living a short distance away in a normal French town.

With our limited French we were able to negotiate our way through the shops and Sunday market without difficulty. The local people we encountered were invariably kind and friendly. When we left we felt that we had been given a taste of what it would be like to live in a small French town. Our only regret was that we were not able to stay longer.

Arles, cut through by the St-Jacques-de-Compostelle road, welcomes many cultural festivals, like the prestigious “Rencontres d’Arles”, dedicated to photography. You will also have the chance to explore the vestiges of the Roman Forum, the famous Episcopal city, and the Mountmajour abbey.

About 65km away, Avignon is a town with many museums, theatres, and monuments dating back to the Middle Ages, the era in which Avignon was the capital of Christendom. You can also visit dozens of churches and chapels, the Papal Palace, The Saint-Benezet bridge (nicknamed “the bridge of Avignon” , made famous by the nursery rhyme), and the ramparts. In July the Festival of Avignon unfurls at the centre of the town. It is one of the most recognized and the oldest dedicated to theatre, created by Jean Vilar in 1947.
