Finally - do read all our reviews... :)
We are a Danish-English couple, who just happen to love Provence any time of the year. We have had for many years of travelling though France, always towards the south, where we've spent many nice holidays, and for years dreamt about 'that' place somewhere in Provence, so when we came across Pont Royal(PR) in the late summer of 2007, we just fell in love with the place, as it's was so beautiful, so green, and with the bonus of so many beautiful places to visit, not far from PR, it was easy, we had finally found 'that' place, our place in Provence, we had been looking for and Pont Royal was the place for us.
While visiting our favourite city of art, light and fountains, Aix-en-Provence in September 2007, we had already decided we wanted to visit PR as it was not far away, with a view to spend
a future holiday at PR, but found that houses and apartments were being released for sale, off plan. We agreed that this was the place for us, and initially wanted a 2-bed house, but our agent said you get the best view if you move up and above, and we're glad we took his advice, as the sun sets are absolutely fantastic, never stops to amaze us, whatever time of the year we are there. So finally in the summer 2009 we signed on the dotted line, but we still had a lot to do ie install a kitchen and even a sink in the toilet, as these did not come with the apartment. A very helpful man with a very big van helped us getting a lot of furniture/things to the apartment - and it was a lot of hard work. However, late summer 2010 we could finally invite friends, family and others to come and stay, as we felt the apartment was just as we wanted it to be - we and others have enjoyed the place since then.
Driving through the gates to PR always makes us smile, as we know a wonderful and relaxing time awaits us.
The views from our loggia are amazing with the Luberon mountains curving around to the right and the Alpilles on the horizon, and we never tire of the 445 acres of green land covered in beautiful trees, bushes, plants, flowers, lakes and beautiful houses are always a delight to look at, and if you are a golfer, you will find yourself on one of the top 10 French golf courses in France, and if you are not a golfer, never mind, as there is so much to do at PR or out and bout, whatever your age!
Our private communal pool is just 2min away from the apartment! It is also possible to have access various of activities via the P&V reception, but all are on a first come first basis, and you have to pay for these facilities directly to P&V! NB! WE ARE NOT PART OF P&V - we are private owners!
Lunch and/or dinner on the loggia is always lovely, and at night with some nice food, some local rosé, good company, lots of flickering candles and with the mountains slowly vanishing in a haze of the most amazing colours, it's a pretty special place to be.
On a practical note Marseille Airport is only 35min away and the wonderful TGV in Avignon is only 30min away!
Then all there is to say is - ENJOY... :)
