Lovely property, warm welcome, but too much missing

  • 3 of 5

After a warm reception and seeing such a clean, tidy and stylish property, I thought our stay might be perfect. However, despite the use of the owners garden & pool being available, we missed an area directly outside the gîte to sit in the sun - what there was, was always in the shade, with uncomfortable large stoned gravel underfoot. A flagged area would be a huge improvement as would the addition of a barbecue (this is the first gîte I have stayed in that didn't have one!). Inside, the kitchen was sparse - only a 2 ring cooker, no oven , no grill (there was a microwave) and several basic kitchen essentials were lacking such as a fish slice, measuring jug, salt & pepper, cooking oil and some kitchen towel. The shower room/wash basin/loo was clean and compact but only separated from the bedroom by a curtain - a sliding door would be a massive improvement. The light switch within was too high for my wife to reach - a quite ridiculous situation, as she is 5' 0" tall, which is not unusual for a woman. There was no wardrobe - just 3 coat hooks - quite inadequate, yet there exists a perfect space in which to install a rail to enable guests to hang their clothes. We therefore had to live out of our suitcases for the week!

My overall impression is that Jean & Sophie, a perfectly charming and warm couple, have not done their homework enough. I have holidayed in many gîtes over the years and ran one of with my wife in France for 5 summers, so used all my experience to offer guests the best experience. This gîte could be so much better.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Puyrichard. Sophie welcomed us and was knowledgeable about Aix and the surrounding area. The apartment was bright, clean and well-equipped for simple meals. It was also comfortable and private. The pool was an oasis after a day of touring and exploring.

Lovely, friendly and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the apartment is lovely and is in a great location (close to the city yet still in the countryside). Sophie was very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back if we are in the area again.

Merci beaucoup!

Liebevoll eingerichtetes kleines Appartement in wunderschöner Region

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung von Sophie befindet sich in optimaler Lage für Unternehmungen In Aix-en-Provence und Umgebung. Die Familie ist außerordentlich nett, hilfsbereit und diskret. Der Pool befindet sich im Garten des Hauses und steht dem Gast alleine zur Verfügung. Ich bedanke mich insbesondere bei der Gastgeberin für ihre Gastfreundlichkeit und die netten Gespräche.

Ich denke gerne an die Tage in Aix zurück!

kleine Fewo, guter Ausgangspunkt, frdl. Vermieterin

  • 4 of 5

Die Fewo ist eher klein, aber ok für 2 Personen,

liegt etwas außerhalb am Stadtrand von Aix

und war ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Aix, Marseille, Luberon, Cassis....

Sehr schön ist der Gartenbereich um den Pool, den wir mit nutzen konnten, der "eigene" Außenbereich eher beengt wie auch das 140-cm-Bett, gewöhnungsbedürftig war das WC hinterm Vorhang.

Superbe séjour dans un petit coin de paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines magnifiques chez Sophie. L'accueil était très chaleureux et le studio très confortable et très joliment décoré. La cerise sur le gâteau : le coin piscine réellement paradisiaque ! Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir.
