Perfect stay for our cycling holiday

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description undersold this fabulous house. It is larger than we expected, with different levels to rooms that meant it took a while to learn our way round. There are two standout bedrooms with lots of space and well equipped bathrooms ensuite, that make you feel quite spoilt. Downstairs there was everything we needed in the kitchen. We enjoyed using the BBQ and spent our evenings eating and sitting outside at the long table. The house is clean and beautifully presented - it's more than a holiday home as there are plenty of pictures and objects to give it a personal touch. We had a problem with the fridge on the first day. With a quick text, Sebastian was with us and measuring up for the new part. He is lovely - he comes to do the pool in the morning (when guests are asleep) and we saw him at Saturday/Tuesday cleans when he comes with the cleaners.

Deposit was fully returned with no quibbles, despite the fridge problem. As a mix of keen and irregular cyclists, this house was positioned just right. We drove to Ventoux - some cycled too - and did many more local routes. The totally flat cycle route from Robion (just over the canal) to, eventually, Apt was a boon. It meant everyone could cycle safely as it takes the path of an old rail line. There are plenty of challenging and picturesque routes from here. There are a couple of ok restaurants in Robion, and we liked the bar (turn left from the house towards the old town) where the locals gather after work. Nearly forgot to mention the pool - large enough to swim properly in. Sebastian put the heating on in the pool when the temperature dipped in the second week, although we didn't really need it. Robion is a few steps away for bread, basics from the mini supermarket. Larger supermarkets are a short drive. All in all, a perfect holiday destination for us and we hope very much to return.

We had an outstanding 3 weeks at the Ferme St Roch

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our birthdays and wedding anniversary over 3 weeks at the farmhouse with family and friends. It was an outstanding time and was enjoyed by guests 9-80! The farmhouse is a beautiful place and was key to our enjoying the village of Robion and the surrounding towns of Provence.

All the farmhouse facilities are wonderful and exactly as shown in the website photos. We spent hours enjoying meals in the outdoor kitchen/dining area. Sebastian Jary, one of the owners, is outstanding and was a great help during our stay and was very patient answering our many questions about life in Provence and Robion. We visited 24 nearby ancient villages surrounding Robion during our stay and also went to larger towns Avignon, Marseille, Nimes and St Remy. Market days in many of these towns was a highlight and adventure for all of us. And several of our group were interested in the wine produced in Provence and they enjoyed several wineries and tastings.

We loved the farmhouse and it made our trip a memorable event for the whole family and our friends. Thanks to Sebastian for making it all possible. We will be back!!

Beautiful traditional farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse has everything you require for a great holiday: lovely bedrooms with excellent and modern bathrooms and lots of room, a farmhouse kitchen with all the equipment you would need, several public rooms which cater for all numbers and moods, excellent outdoor facilities and pool and not least an attentive and helpful host who was there when you needed him but left you to enjoy the holiday.

We particularly liked the inner courtyard for meals and relaxing in the evening and when we wished some shade. The barbecue was well used. It was also a great place for the children to play as it was private and fully enclosed. The outer garden was a lovely sunny area and the pool was clean with sparkling water and lighting for an evening swim.The main lounge was great when we were all together but the games room and the library were always there for quiet moments. Robion has a range of eating places to suit all tastes and a good range of shops. It is also well placed for visiting all the popular tourist and beauty spots in Provence. Last but not least, the owner was always ready to provide information and help particularly when we organised a celebration meal in the farmhouse when we had the food provided by a local restaurant. All in all everyone from the youngest to the oldest had a wonderful time and we would certainly recommend St Roch Farmhouse for a great family holiday.

A beautiful, extremely well appointed house

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this incredible property. We stayed with our four children and had plenty of room and made full use of the gorgeous pool. The kitchen is really well equipped, and the bathrooms modern and luxurious. The location is perfect for exploring the beautiful villages of Provence, and within walking distance of the house are boulangeries, bars and restaurants. The owner Sebastian is absolutely charming and went out of his way to make us feel welcome, we felt we could have made any request and he would have sorted it! A five star holiday experience.

You will find it hard to leave

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful three weeks at Ferme St.Roch in June and July, 2013. Along with with family and friends, we had a truly exceptional vacation, exceeding the high expectations we had after seeing the online photos and reading the reviews. Let me explain why.

We initially selected this place on the basis of its location, but we fell in love with it because of its charm, its comfort, and the hospitality of Sebastian, the extremely helpful proprietor/manager.

Let's talk first about the accessibility that first attracted us. Robion is less than half an hour from Avignon, making it easy for guests to take the TGV high-speed train directly from Paris or the CDG airport. It's located in a quiet village not overrun by tourists, yet perfectly placed to visit the most beautiful parts of Provence.

But staying at this beautiful 18th-century stone farmhouse would be a worthwhile destination no matter where it was located. Although it is right in the village of Robion (a two minute walk to a cafe, grocery store, or bakery) once you close the gate, the beautifully maintained grounds make you feel as if you are in the countryside. in fact, the property is so comfortable that we were often tempted to simply stay at home to swim in the fabulous pool, chat in the shaded arbor, or read a book in the beautiful gardens.

The house itself is extremely comfortable and very well appointed. The large country kitchen quickly became a place for gathering, but there also lots of quiet corners where people could be alone. The beds were large and very comfortable. and having the cleaners come twice each week was a real plus.

The property service was exceptional, and Sebastian could not have been more helpful. in conclusion, we could not recommend Ferme St.Roch more highly, and would return in an instant.

Car: recommended

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).
