About Catherine Bossard

I early started working in the tourism business and followed up in a luxurious hotel member of the chain of the Relais & Châteaux.

I work today on Yield management.

Being into the tourism activity, I have a fair idea of what people may expect in terms of holydays and always make sure my guests are entirely happy with their stay.

The house is therefore a life full place and not just a holiday residency.

Catherine Bossard purchased this house in 1996

Why Catherine Bossard chose Salon area

Salon has always been an anchor for me for many years. My father had bought a former Romanesque monastery he had transformed into a luxury hotel which remained for a few years before that, a holiday for the whole family. I settled in Salon in 1983 and took care of the management and development of the hotel. A big adventure for over 25 years! In 1996, however, I decided to settle out of the hotel to experience greater family intimacy with my husband and my daughter. I then bought a small house on the outskirts of Salon. The proximity of the city center was intended to allow me to go shopping walking and easily drop my daughter to school. The hotel is now sold but I still live in Salon that remains also the residence of all my friends, and a strategic location in terms of proximity to TGV train stations, airports and highways. This is important as I travel a lot now.

An ideal house in the heart of Provence

  • 4 of 5

An excellent description of the property! The layout was ideal for our family, which allowed for some privacy -- we much appreciated having washrooms attached to each bedroom. The property was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped and we greatly enjoyed having a space for outdoor cooking (BBQ with a counter and sink). The yard is well designed with a dining area under a beautiful vine, a lounge area under a tree and a sunny pool area (which was used daily!). The bed linens could be improved by having higher quality sheets and having at least one duvet for optional use. The proximity to the village centre was ideal and accessible within a short walk. We were well greeted by the owner despite our tardy arrival and were pleasantly surprised to have a few basics in the fridge (eggs, milk, butter, bread, coffee, wine). Catherine made herself available during our stay and quickly addressed our questions. She took the time to check in with us mid-stay and shared good suggestions for activities in the area. No hesitations in recommending this property to family and friends, which I have already done!

Schönes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Kleines aber feines Domizil, in dem die Vermieterin außerhalb der Ferienzeiten selbst wohnt.

Die Einrichtung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Das Haus war sauber und in gutem Pflegezustand.

Die Beschreibungen und Bilder auf der Internetseite treffen den Charakter des Hauses gut.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend.

Tolles Haus, freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermiete

  • 5 of 5

Wir würden das Haus immer wieder mieten.Es ist geräumig, alle Zimmer incl. Küche sind klimatisiert, das Haus hat Charme,ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat einen schönen kleinen Pool in einem sehr gepflegten Garten. Man konnte bis spät in die Nacht draußen sitzen,den Zikaden lauschen und die kleinen Lézards Fliegen verspeisen sehen;-) Salon d.Provence ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um viele Provenceattraktionen zu sehen.Ein riesiger Supermarkt ist in gut 5 Minuten zu erreichen. Also nichts wie hin !

wunderbare Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben wunderbare Ferien in Salon de Provence verbracht. Haus und Garten waren sehr gut organisiert, es fehlte an nichts. Das Schwimmbad war, besonders für die Kinder, perfekt. Wir fühlten uns sehr freundlich aufgenommen, alle touristischen Informationen fanden wir vor, alle Einrichtungen im Haus funktionierten tadellos. Wir würden einen Urlaub in diesem Haus jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Danke für diese schöne Zeit!

Superbe maison avec piscine et agréable jardin

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu le plaisir de passer 2 semaines dans cette très belle maison. Super bien équipée et très très agréable, tant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur. Petite piscine très cosy. Une oase de tranquillité à - à peine - 5 minutes à pied du centre de salon. Le parfait refuge pour découvrir le centre de la Provence...
