The best of the best!
My daughter was reading "The Secret Garden" during our stay at Domain Pre Joly, and it seemed so fitting -- we drove through a canopy of trees, the gates opened, and we entered an oasis of calm and beauty. The rental house is part of a larger compound that includes the owner's house, a living space for the housekeeper, a pool house, a pool, and a large lawn. Next to the pool is a large covered patio where we ate most of our meals.
The house itself is charming -- very nicely decorated, great use of space. Each bedroom has a whimsical theme -- Hermes scarves, Coco Chanel, and one with black and white photos of celebs including Madonna. The beds are extremely comfortable. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a shower. The bathrooms are gorgeous, with rainshower heads and beautiful tile.
Anne Martin, the owner with her husband, Vincent, was a gracious and thoughtful host. She arranged to have a catered dinner waiting when we arrived, a delicious treat after a long day of travel. She also stocked the fridge with groceries from a list we provided. On the first morning we were there, we looked out the window to see Vincent waving, holding a bag of fresh pastries and baguette. We felt so welcome -- as if we were staying with family! And Carolina, the housekeeper (who also has an adorable dog) made sure the house and pool area stayed neat and tidy. Everyone in our party of six, including my husband and me, our 9 and 11 year old daughters, and my husband's parents, felt comfortable and well cared for during our entire stay.
While you are there, be sure to make the trip to Palais du Papes and Pont de Gard -- two of our favorite excursions. We also enjoyed a trip to St. Remy for a lunch and a tour of the asylum where Vincent Van Gogh painted over 150 paintings. We ate at two restaurants recommended by Anne -- La Coeur d'Honneur, in a charming courtyard with excellent food and service, and Michelin-starred Le Prieure, which was spectacular.
I've stayed at some amazing VRBO properties over the years, but this one was by far the best. We hope to return again someday!

Thank you Jeecy !
Domaine Pre Joly is a hidden jem just outside of Avignon. Our first stay at a VRBO and it certainly surpassed all of our expectations. They have set the bar high. The grounds are immaculate, the home is decorated with elegance and simplicity and every detail for comfort is addressed. Anne and Vincent are wonderful hosts and Anne’s suggestions for restaurants and activities are the best. In fact we said if it’s not on Anne’s list then we will not consider. A very special stay and we left taking many great memories with us.
Thank you for such a kind evaluation of your stay in The Domaine Pré Joly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. It was a private oasis from which we explored the Avignon area. The weather was very hot during our stay and returning to the villa for a swim and drinks in the pool house bar after a day of touring was a treat. Carolina was available to answer any questions and did a great job of tidying up the villa when we were out. We hope to return in the future!
Thank you for your very kind comments !
Our pleasure is doubled when the guest's stay is up to expectations.
I wish you all the best,

Tasteful Luxury in the Avignon Countryside!
Anne and Vincent are the most gracious and friendly hosts. From the minute we arrived through gate bringing us through a canopy of trees, we know we had come to the right place! Everything was perfect , from the private pool/pool house to the fabulously decorated guest house with French Fashion themed bedrooms and bathrooms, to the warmth of the owners . The little touches, like a welcome fruit basket and croissants and bread the first morning were amazing! The pool area felt like a 5 star resort! We will definitely be back for a future visit to Domaine Pre Joly!
Thank you !
It was a pleasure meet you !
We hope see you again,
Anne and Vincent
