Wonderful base for Provence

  • 5 of 5
We rented L' Ecole les Filles for two weeks in August 2014 and shared with our adult children/spouses so there were 6 of us in total. The house and garden far exceeded our expectations and was the perfect base from which to explore Provence. The proximity to the Avignon TGV station is ideal and yet you are far from the congestion in Avignon. Also an added benefit is being at the top of The village in a quiet location within 5 minutes of the car park. And for the early risers there are a number of walking trails that criss-cross the ridge with spectacular views of the Rhone Valley. For the late risers a great boulangerie with chocolate croissants to get your day started with the right attitude. (And something to dream about when you get back to the States.) The house is tastefully done and the garden and pool so close to the house that it's perfect for al fresco dining. Five stars all around on our rating. One final note, if you have 3 couples, be aware that because of placement it is impractical to share the one upstairs toilet where 2 of the 3 bedrooms are located. The solution is for the person(s) in the loft bedroom to use the powder room on the main level and at the foot of the stairs. Be aware, but this aspect would not keep us from a repeat rental.

Exquisite!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at l'ecole des filles" was a highlight of a three week trip to Switzerland and France. Juliette and Yves welcomed us at the Avignon train station, generously escorted us to the front door of their lovely home, and offered several great recommendations for villages and sights to visit in the area. Barbentane is charming, quiet, and a great point from which to explore the Rhone Valley. L'ecole des filles is spacious and beautifully appointed. Our two daughters loved the loft room and of course we all enjoyed the pool and courtyard! Our hope is to return again someday... Merci beaucoup, Juliette and Yves!!

Charming and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at L'école des filles for a week in April and it was exquisite. The medieval village of Bartentane, where it is located, is quaint and you would never expect this gorgeous property to be located off the unassuming cobblestone street (accessed via walking only). Juliette is great to deal with and the property was clean and perfect. The layout of the 3rd bedroom is slightly strange in that the bed is in the loft and there is a tub and sink, but no toilet. The kitchen is very well stocked- we even had a dinner party and no trouble with kitchenware and serving dishes. I recommend this special property to a group of 4-6 staying in Provence.

Absolute PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
This home is more extraordinary than the pictures show. And, the pictures are stunning! We come from Los ANgeles with very high standards and could not have been more impressed by Juliette, the rental agent, or by the property itself - which was breathtaking! The village is darling. We walked through the hillsides with their olive groves and walked to dinner at the wonderful pizzeria. We also spent days visiting magnificent, nearby vineyards and village festivals followed by evenings grilling out on the home's backyard BBQ grill with meat from the local shop - which we walked to. Parking is incredibly easy and there is a convenient, local market - also within brief, walking distance. While this is a magical and romantic home, it is also big and spacious enough for 6 or more people. The backyard and pool are both a delightful indulgence! I read the review about robbery before our stay, so I was very aware. After staying there, it is impossible for me to imagine how a thief would be able to rob the home, unless the back gate had been left unlocked. There are high walls and everything locks for safety. Lock the door and gate and you will have no problems. The village is an ancient, breathtaking location. Do NOT miss this exquisite gem! I hope to return here every year, for many, many more tremendous memories!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
It's a wonderful house in a special village. The decoration is amazing, with special care in any place you look. It's not a house, it's a piece of jewelry!
Comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen, I can't imagine how to get more from a rented house.
Special thanks to Mme Juliette, who take care of all, before and during our stay.

Be careful ....

  • 1 of 5
This is a very beautiful property that looks like it should be in Architectural Digest. The kitchen, living room and master bedroom are quite impressive but the pool is unheated, there is no airconditioning and the stairs can be very slippery. The town is quite nice & centrally located but potential renters should be very careful as we were robbed while we slept in the house just days after the owner told us how safe & secure it was. The thieves stole our purses, wallets, laptop, glasses, jewellery & passports which ruined our vacation!

Owner's Response: I am really sorry about what happened to the Canadian tenants during their stay in Provence at "L'ecole des Filles" and I can understand their unhappyness. But I don't agree with their review. I and the local police confirm that the historic center of this medieval village is quite, safe and secure (even if everyone has to be careful everywhere...). The property is closed by high stone walls and the conclusion of the police investigation was that the thieves came in the night by the gate forgotten to be locked (the stolen bags where on a table near an opened window). About the swimming pool, in summer, temperature is usely from 24°C to 30°C. From spring 2013 it will be heated for spring and autumn tenants. About airconditioning, this property has thick stone walls to keep fresh.
The Canadian tenants were very enthousiastic about the property and their stay except the last day when the theft occured.
This property "L'Ecole des Filles" was seen on French national TV in October 2011 and elected second favorite home by French people (among 40 houses selected in France).
