Perfect for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a one week stay in Ferme St Roche. Our family group comprised three generations, the youngest a baby of 7 months.

I can honestly say that the house worked perfectly for us and we had a wonderful time.

Many large holiday rental houses are situated in the country so you need to drive even to buy bread. Not so Ferme St Roche. The house feels quiet and secluded but is only minutes walk to shops, restaurants and Tourist Information if you need it.

The outside spaces were particularly appreciated by us. They were well thought out with seating on the terrace for pre dinner drinks, a large table where we ate most evenings and ample pool sun beds.

Table tennis and the pool table came in for a lot of use by the more energetic family members and the clean, heated swimming pool had most of us swimming everyday.

Last week in Provence was very warm and sunny and when we arrived the fair was in Robion. In addition to the usual rides there was music, dancing and performances which made it feel like a true village event.

Finally a word or two of praise for Sebastian who manages the house. He arranged for a cot, high chair and changing table to be in place on our arrival so the baby's needs were well taken care of. He was endlessly helpful and arrived within minutes when we had a small problem so many thanks to him also for the advice and treats which helped to make our holiday so memorable.

Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a property! We were very warmly welcomed by Sebastian and his father who took us on a tour of the house and garden. The wine and olive bread they provided was a lovely surprise.

The house is even more impressive in person, combining luxury and elegance with homely, personal touches. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and stylish. The kitchen facilities were excellent, and we had fun cooking on the barbecue. We spent many long lunches and candlelit evenings in the courtyard dining area.

Everyone enjoyed playing in the pool, followed by sitting in the shade reading books. We also made full use of the entertainment provided including snooker, table tennis and a piano.

The house is completely private, nestled within the village. We visited the local bakery most mornings for croissants, quiche and heavenly strawberry tarts. The fruit and veg shop opposite the bakery is very well stocked and includes a wine cave. We enjoyed a fabulous lunch of pizza and pasta at Il Momento just a short stroll away.

My sister and her family arrived 2 days later than planned with only half their luggage due to the British Airways IT system failure. Sebastian immediately offered to help and spoke with the airport to assist in the safe delivery of their lost luggage, which arrived later that evening. He also very kindly brought them a bottle of wine. A big thank you to Sebastian from all of us!

We made many happy memories at La Ferme St Roch and would love to return some day. One week just isn't long enough!

Owner's Response: Dear Kathleen, Thank you for your kind words and amazing review. I am really glad you enjoyed your stay at St Roch's farmhouse and hope to welcome you back again someday. It was a pleasure to have you and your family and I am happy everything went smoothly after the British Airways delay. I look forward to seeing again in the next years. Kind regards, Sebastian Jary

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.

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).
