Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday here from the 4th to the 19th of June 2016. Eight of us in total ranging from Ollie the toddler to grandpa Barry, with a few others in between.

On arrival (11pm due to late flight) we had a little trouble finding the house as the postcode didn't take us to the Villa. However after a frantic half hour of driving up and down various driveways in the dark we were thankfully flagged down by a very happy Francis and we were escorted to the house without being arrested.

Two bottles of wine awaited us from a local wine Co-op and our holiday began !

The house is fantastic, very spacious and simply furnished. Large galley kitchen although no oven but there is a great BBQ and plancha so we didn't miss the oven at all !

The heated pool was perfect and has steps which suited our 3 year old, although there is no shallow end as such, the depth is around 5 feet 6 inches across the length of the pool.

Plenty of outside seating/dining areas and lots of places to escape each other if you feel the need !

The nearest Supermarket is a Hyper U (French Tesco) in Pertius around 10 minute drive and is massive ! There are several wine co-ops nearby which sell great wine too.

The nearest Village (Villelaure) is about 2 miles away and has two Boulangeries, mini market, bar/cafe but not much else. Francis does provide several bicycles and we loved cycling to the village each morning for our bread and croissants !

There is a great Pizza van which parks up on your way into the village too (if you've had too may glasses of Rose to drive, With a bungee cord and some careful riding you can fit 4 large Pizzas on the rear rack of the Blue bike, ;)

Francis was very helpful when needed and wasn't intrusive at all, he and his wife live in an adjoining house but you wouldn't know as they totally leave you to it and you really feel like the place is your own.

There are no stone steps outside for toddlers to fall down, the pool is fenced and very secure and there is plenty of space for them to run around !

To conclude we had a very pleasant stay and thoroughly recommend the house.

Having been visiting France for over 15 years staying in similar places to varying degrees of success, I can confidently say that this was one of the best houses we have stayed in. The interior might be considered a bit minimalistic by some people, but we found it both practical and functional, lacking very little.

Très bon et je vous remercie, Francis

Amazing property in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay here. The house is gorgeous and the setting is idyllic. We stayed for two weeks in may and have already booked to go back next year! The house is well equipped and all rooms have their own shower/toilet. The surrounding area is beautiful and the owners Francis & Sylvie are the highlight of the trip!

We just returned from an unique stay!

  • 5 of 5

Together with our 4 kids, their partners and our grand child we experienced an unforgettable vacation at this peaceful location in the middle of nature, called 'la plaine' by the Villelaure locals.

The property is mirroring the passion and generosity which Francis and Sylvie are leaving behind after the very first encounter.

The way all is arranged and taking care off shows a genuine care for what guests in vacation mood are looking for.

Highly recommendable if you are looking for a family moment in a natural and peaceful environment with privacy for all.

Rik, Martine&co

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Vous souhaitez passer un moment agréable et détendu avec vos enfants (deux couples) et leur progéniture (soit trois enfants, de deux ans et demi à cinq ans) : c'est le lieu idéal. Question d'espace, d'abord : cinq chambres, chacune pourvue de sa douche et de ses commodités, et distribuées de telle façon que les plus vieux peuvent, à l'étage, préserver leur sommeil s'ils le souhaitent ; en enfilade, une grande salle à manger, une longue cuisine, un sympathique petit salon dont les enfants spontanément ont immédiatement fait leur domaine, et un immense salon aux hautes baies vitrées pourvu de canapés accueillants... tout cela est très fonctionnel, très bien pensé ; sans compter la terrasse abritée, à l'ouest, où une grande table permet de prendre les repas devant la fraîcheur reposante d'un saule pleureur séculaire. Question de sécurité ensuite : la propriété offre aux enfants un vaste terrain de jeu et d'exploration arboré, et entièrement clos ; la piscine est parfaitement sécurisée elle aussi, un enfant en bas âge ne peut y avoir accès sans qu'un adulte l'accompagne. Question confort également : vous entrez dans un lieu propre, les matelas sont neufs, les douches à l'italienne offrent une eau abondante et immédiatement chaude, l'équipement (vaisselle, appareils ménagers) est suffisant... Un seul manque, pour qui vient avant l'été et n'a pas à se soucier de préserver la fraîcheur et a plus l'habitude de mijoter des petits plats que de manier le barbecue et la plancha : pas de four, aïe... mais ouf, Sylvie, la propriétaire, vous prête immédiatement une cocotte en fonte qui cuira aussi bien vos poulets et autres rôtis ! Car question accueil, il faut dire que les relations avec Francis Granon et son épouse sont d'emblée extrêmement cordiales et sous le signe du sourire. Non pas un sourire de convention ou de façade, mais le sourire authentique, généreux, d'hôtes accueillants et attentifs, désireux de vous faciliter la vie et de faire de votre séjour une réussite. Cinq étoiles, sans réserve !

Owner's Response: Quel bonheur de confier sa maison à Sylvie et Pierre…et à leur charmante famille aux enfants adorables ! ! Si votre séjour a été une réussite c’est que vous faites partie des vacanciers les plus sympa qui aiment, apprécient et respectent des lieux où tout est mis en œuvre pour que les vacances soient un moment d’exception. Vous faites maintenant partie des clients que la maison ait accueilli qui nous ont laissé un excellent souvenir. Un grand merci encore pour le soin que vous avez apporté à la maison et pour ce touchant commentaire qui nous fait réellement plaisir. Francis & Sylvie

Authenticité et émotion

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable combinant espace et silence. La maison climatisée est très vaste, les pièces toutes bien indépendantes, pourvue chacune de leur salle d’eau, et commodités. Sa situation retirée permet un calme absolu. Sur l’équipement, nous ne listerons pas une nouvelle fois tout ce qui a déjà été commenté à ce sujet, tout y est déjà dit à plusieurs reprises, nous avons trouvé tout ce dont on avait besoin, le grand BBQ a permis la cuisson d’un superbe filet de bœuf, acheté au village, comme dans un four, et aussi de finir la cuisson de nos pizzas, achetées chez l’ambulant local.

Retirée, presque, car avec les vélos mis à disposition, il faut à peine 15 minutes pour aller chercher le pain frais en ville, et passer par le vendeur fruits et légumes à proximité. La literie est top qualité, le linge fourni sent la fraicheur provençale.

Que d’espace pour les loisirs, nous avons fait nos internationaux de boulistes tout autour de la propriété, les concours ping-pong ou baby en attendant l’apéro. Les balades sont cool jusqu’à la Durance.

Et la piscine agréable dès 6h du matin, pour ceux qui aiment faire un petit d’exercice avant les fortes chaleurs.

Que dire des propriétaires voisins mais discrets, Sylvie et Francis nous ont accueillis sous le signe du sourire, toujours dispo en cas de besoin. Des gens authentiques, et généreux, …des gens qu’on apprécie. Et bien connus dans l’entourage, nous en avons fait l’expérience à la cave viticole locale.

Ça fait plaisir que les gens d’ici s’entraident, et vous saluent avec le sourire.
