Provence is considered to be a dry temperate region and enjoys, on average, 300 days of sunshine a year with rain falling on a maximum of 90 days. It enjoys long hot sunny days throughout the summer and crisp bright winters. During winter and spring the southern regions of the Cote d'Azur, Provence and the Rhone valley occasionally experience strong winds called 'le Mistral'. Spring is the time of the year, however, when the poppies and sunflowers begin to appear and the air is fresher and cooler than that experienced during the summer months. Temperatures are slightly lower nearer the coast due to the sea breezes.
It is a painters' paradise with splendid light.
We have a fluent English/French speaking lady who manages our villa and who is available at all times to look after clients. She will arrange trips, baby sitting, cleaning etc. and will also help out 24/24 when an emergency occurs. A cot and/or child bed can be provided free of charge if required.

I live in England with my husband. We have 3 grown up children and 2 grandchildren. We spent much of our married life in rental accommodation, living and working overseas. I have always loved France and worked there for 2 years before getting married. As a family, we have spent several very happy holidays staying in other people's gîtes and as a result I believe I know what families are looking for when renting a house for their holidays.
Tricia purchased this villa in 2001
Why Tricia chose Mallemort-De-Provence
We love Pont Royal because of the fantastic facilities in the area. At present there is an 18 hole championship designed golf course in the Domaine and a new 6 hole course was completed in 2010. Apart from golf, you can hike in the Luberon or the Alpilles, rent a bicycle, play tennis, hire a canoe at Gordes or sample the many local wines. If you are an aspiring artist, the Provençal light and colours really are an inspiration. Aix en Provence, Avignon and Arles are all within easy driving distance. There are some beautiful beaches within an hour's drive and the marina at Marseille boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Marseille airport only 45 minutes drive away.
What makes this villa unique
Our property is situated in a quiet residential street less than 5 minutes walk from the bustle of the village square with its mini supermarket, newsagent, gift shops and restaurants. It is very much our second home and we have furnished it as such, with good quality furnishings, some of which we bought while living abroad. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is plenty of space with a sitting room downstairs and a TV and computer area upstairs with an excellent selection of books and games. In addition to the swimming pool, table tennis table and boules pitch, we also have a large jacuzzi - about the only rental property to have one! We provide bats and balls for the table tennis, boules etc. and there are also plenty of toys for use in the pool.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We are just back from our wonderful stay at your villa in Mallemort so wanted to drop you a few lines.The entire family really enjoyed it. The villa is very well equipped (we found the internet connection really convenient) and ideally located.
The garden was lovely and the lavander smell when swimming added a special touch to the experience. All the indications you gave us were really helpful, thank you.
We are likely to be back next year!
