About Didier Salzmann

My wife and I are both UN staff serving in Nairobi/Kenya. We enjoy a quiet and warm family life. We love refined food and wine, and discover new places through biking and hiking. La Magnaneraie is our retirement home where we will settle once our rather "unusual" life will be behind us. We enjoy our environment in Provence and we care for its conservation.

Didier Salzmann purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Didier Salzmann chose Haut-Vaucluse

I grew up in this part of France and as I have been traveling and living abroad most of my life, this house serves as a anchor point where I belong. The house is an old silk farm very nicely renovated and maintained, it offers the calm of the countryside while being very close to the city center. This location is mostly appreciated during summer, when you want to enjoy all cultural activities without suffering the noise and promiscuity of a busy town central district.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are proposing change overs on Sunday during the summer months to avoid getting our guests stuck for hours in the famous traffic jams of the Autoroute du Soleil.

Beautiful country home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this clean and comfortable Provençal farmhouse. We were welcomed by the caretaker couple, Jean and Ondine, who were wonderful and very helpful. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and the pool was great. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill and dining on the outdoor patio. We would definitely return!

Great House, Wonderful Pool, Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect week at Mas Provencal, the house itself is very comfortable, with all the necessary mod cons, the pool is a good size and in a wonderful position, as are the surrounding patios. The panoramic views are beautiful, over the vineyards and up to the not so distant mountains . The market town of Vaison- La- Romaine is close by, with its fantastic old sector, vibrant market and many great restaurants. The Villa is a good base for exploring the Rhone countryside, with is many stunning villages and famous winegrowing areas such as Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape.

We would love to come back.

So beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks in this lovely French home! The grounds were lovely, and the pool was a welcome place after days out touring the countryside. The location is great for lots of side trips, and Vaison la Romaine is a wonderful town. Jean Louis and Ondine were so helpful and kind. I hope to return someday. Anyone who stays here is fortunate indeed!!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this house and with our October stay in Vaison la Romaine. The house itself is fully as advertised - everything spacious and comfortable. We (two couples) cooked a lot, taking full advantage of the wonderful Provencal ingredients, and the kitchen was very well equipped for a VRBO. Nothing stripped-down for rental here - a full working kitchen. As always, if you're going to do serious cooking, it would be a good idea to bring some sharp knives. I sharpened a few, but the sharpening equipment was not the greatest.

As a bonus, there is a wonderful fireplace in the living room, which was a huge positive on the one day that it rained all day. The caretakers were there when we arrived and were incredibly helpful. They stayed out of our way during our stay, but we would have felt totally comfortable calling them if we'd needed anything (which we did not). Note that there is a clothes washer but no dryer; there is an ample drying rack outside for sun-drying, but if you were unlucky with a stretch of bad weather and a large party, it could be a problem.

Overall this house, and the folks we dealt with, were A+.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr Bowie, It has been a pleasure hosting you at la Magnaneraie. I am glad you enjoyed your stay despite the weather which seemed not to have been very cooperative. I still hope you could enjoy some of the autumn colors in vineyards and forests. I take note of your very relevant point on knifes and sharpener. As my wife and I love cooking (her), and eating (me), we are particularly mindful of all what relates to the kitchen equipment. Concerning the dryer, this is mainly a summer house, closed during winter, so I need to think twice whether I wish to bring yet again another electrical device with the space it will take and the dust it will gather. Anyway I hear you and will most probably adjust if this becomes a recurrent request. So yet again, many thanks for your stay, thanks for your kind words about Jean Louis and Ondine, you are welcome back anytime as you have been really good guests. I know it is a long way from home, we never know!!! Best and regards

Wonderful Mas in Vaison la Romaine

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at La Magnanaraie. We were warmly greeted by Jean-Louis and his wife the caretakers and given helpful details and instructions for our week's stay. They also provided great recommendations for places to visit and restaurants to dine at.

The kitchen was well and thoughtfully equipped, bedrooms clean and comfortable, bathrooms for every bedroom, the living and dining rooms were nicely furnished and we loved the outdoor dining and pool area. The house is surrounded by vineyards and other mas and is very private and has amazing views of the countryside.

The town of Vaison la Romaine and surrounding area were wonderful...there wasn't any need for us to venture far as there was plenty to do locally and we found that most of the time we enjoyed just relaxing and experiencing time at La Magnanaraie.

The excursions out of town we liked were Fontaine de Vaucluse, hiking the Dentelles Montmirail, driving to the top of Mt. Ventoux and daily road bike rides in the surrounding countryside of Vaison La Romaine.

Jean-Louis recommended we try Restaurant Saint Hubert in the neighboring town of Entrechaux...great recommendation.

We would definitely stay again at La Magnanaraie and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

I am glad if we have contributed building some good and positive memories of your stay, and would definitely welcome you back, with great pleasure, should you wish to continue with your "découverte de la Provence".

Vaison la Romaine is famous to be presenting faces from three very different eras, the Roman Era with lots of ruins some of them very well maintained, a medieval village with fortress and fortifications and a contemporary town. The village offers on Tuesday morning one of the most famous and larger Provencal market where you will find all ingredients for the wonderful Provencal cuisine "avec l'accent du midi". The countryside around is absolutely wonderful and offers a wide variety of landscapes. The Mt Ventoux is the playing ground for lots of treks and biking, and hardly can one count the number of famous wines in the vicinity. Everyone would find something of its test!.
