We were 4 couples traveling together to another country with a language barrier....none of us proficient in French.....not even good pretenders. Coming form the states was not only long and tiring but stressful due to this and our inability to know exactly how CDG and the TGV trains operated. We handled this with great aplomb finally.....somehow got off the train (not as quickly as required) but off with ALL luggage. Found our rental autos and then the Farmhouse. Relief ....at last. And what relief it is....wow! Words cannot describe its beauty.....the pictures on web site nice......but seeing and living it.....WOW! Just a tremendous week with friends enjoying Provence and this home when we returned each day......tired ......thirsty and hungry. Local restaurants were a real treat.......Chef Ronald came and entertained with truly great meal prepared and served on site. Beautiful night ....inside and outside enjoyment .....a true 10 experience . And last but not least .....the best of the best....the commander in chief....SEBASTIAN.......who handled everything efficiently and effectively all week. A man who knows how to greet and treat his guests. Would recommend this Villa to all.....you will not be disappointed. We thank you Sebastian for a truly amazing and relaxing experience . Bob
Thank you for your kind words and I am really glad to read you had a great time at St Roch's farmhouse. It was a real pleasure to have you with your extended group of friends and I hope to welcome you again in the coming years. I hope you enjoyed your few days in Paris too and please send my best regards to all the other members of your party. on my behalf :-) Warm regards, Sebastian
A True Jewel in a Small Town
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Ferme-St-Roch. I chose the property based on the bedroom / bath situation of the property and the outdoor dining facility. Little did I know how exceptional it would turn out to be. The secret weapon is the owner, Sebastian Jary. He could have not been more wonderful, making sure to suggest restaurants (and book them for us), on the spot (within minutes) when we encountered one small problem and generally just very attentive to make sure all went well with our visit.
I also wasn't quite aware of how centrally located this property is situated for sightseeing. It seems all we wished to see in the area was an easy drive. ( A car does seem necessary for this property though - parking is available on property.)
The kitchen is well-equipped even for seasoned chefs. Bicycles, games, a library and a full sized pool complete the experience.
We were charmed to learn that this house was actually part of a monastery - love the history angle.
Farmhouse, St Roch, Robion
Where do I start? The farmhouse St Roch is the most perfect spot for a family holiday. We were three generations;
2 grandparents, 4 parents and 3 grandchildren. We stayed in the last week of May.
St Roch is in the middle of Robion, close to the amenities, but you would not know you were in the middle of town.
The buildings, gardens and pool are superb, they far exceeded our expectations. Lots of sitting areas both in and out of the sun. Anyone who has been on a family holiday knows the importance of even a short time away from the crowd.
Prior to our arrival Sebastian had helped me organise a special day for my wife's birthday on the Monday. A wine tasting and a vineyard tour at Domaine de Marie followed by lunch at Bistro le 5. We were so looking forward to visiting these places that had been recommended to us. Unfortunately I am writing this from my hospital bed. I tripped, fell and broke my hip on Sunday evening. So Monday was spent at A&E with the hip replacement scheduled for later in the week. Sebastian was magnificent, guiding us through the French hospital system and staying with us at the hospital for translation duties.
Although I wanted them to continue with the day, the family decided that we had to cancel. Once again Sebastian came up trumps and sorted this out for us. We all think that Sebastian has gone far beyond any duty of care for us. Thank you once again Sebastian.
With the aid of modern technology (photographs) I was able to follow the progress of the family during the rest of our stay.
Once I have fully recovered we will return. We have a wine tasting and a special meal to look forward to.
A perfect base to explore the Luberon region!
Thank you, Sebastian! We are a group of 8 adults (4 couples) and visited this special property in April 2019 for 7 nights. The house accommodated us perfectly! We loved being based in the village of Robion, because it really doesn't feel "touristy". All the necessities (bakery, butcher, fruit & wine store) were within minutes walk from the chateau. But when the gate closes, we all felt we were isolated in our own private world. The chateau is beautifully outfitted and maintained. And Sebastian felt more like a personal host than "landlord". When one of our group became sick, he arranged an appointment for her with a local doctor and even escorted us there. We HIGHLY recommend this wonderful property. Thank you, Sebastian, for a marvelous experience!
A delightful stay
We had a delightful two weeks at La Ferme St Roch at the end of September. The property is lovely, well equipped and well maintained, with spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms, an excellent kitchen and a beautiful swimming pool. It’s totally private, but once you walk through the gate it’s a convenient, very short walk into town to the bakery and markets. Robion is an ideal location, situated at the foot of the Luberon mountain range and very close to Gordes, Ménerbes, Roussillon, Isle sur Sorgue, St. Rémy and other well-known Provence spots. It’s very easily accessible from either Avignon or Aix en Provence. We usually spent a few hours each day exploring the area and having lunch in one of the nearby towns, then made sure to return by mid-afternoon in time to swim and relax by the pool. One day we took a hike into the Luberon just behind Robion’s old town. We had family and friends with us part of the time, and sometimes it was just the two of us. It couldn’t have been any better. To top it all off, Sebastian was a perfect host. We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the entire experience. Merci mille fois!
St Roch’s farmhouse is ideally located at the gates of Luberon National Park in the quaint medieval village of Robion, just 12 miles away from Avignon’s historical town and theater festival, 30 miles from stylish Aix en Provence, Cezanne’s hometown, and one hour away from Marseille.
It is a perfect base for discovering the stunning medieval hilltop villages of the area and some of the most famous “postcard” sceneries and landscapes of Provence. Within a radius of 6 miles, you will find l’Isle sur la Sorgue with its colourful antique market, Gordes and its traditional stone houses, Roussillon with its remarkable earth tones, but also not far away Fontaine de Vaucluse, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Lourmarin, les Baux de Provence, Saint Remy, etc. And since it is entirely acceptable to be a bit lazy when on holiday, you won’t have to walk more than 900 feet to reach all village shops (bakery, grocery, butcher, pharmacy, 3 restaurants, and the tourist office).
