Lovely House with fantastic pool and grounds

  • 4 of 5

As with any rental the first impression comes from the communication with the owners and ease of booking and with this rental it was first class. I exchanged a number of emails with Catherine and the response was always quick and thorough.

On arriving at the house we received a very warm greeting from Catherine and Alain who showed us around their large and lovely home and thoroughly explained everything from how the cooker works to when the bins needed putting out. Their lovely young son accompanied us and his constant smile was probably amusement at our efforts to communicate in French and English. The swimming pool area is set a short distance from the house down some steps and the large pool is surrounded by beautiful plants and lavender. There are plenty of sun loungers and the hose next to the pool acted as a make do shower because the water in the pipes was heated by the direct sunshine. The grounds which are very well presented and looked after are large enough to afford the opportunity for just strolling around the garden in the beautiful Provençal sun and taking in the views of Mont Ventoux. The terrace allows for relaxing in the shade during the day and eating outside at night. We made full use of the built in BBQ. Catering for families with children the owners have included a small park area in the garden with swing and slide and of course the table tennis and use of bicycles. The house was lovely and very spacious and generally quite cool but in the very hot weather the bedrooms were too warm. I would recommend that the owners provide a fan for each bedroom as we had to purchase our own but this is personal choice and not a criticism.

All of the bedrooms were spacious with sufficient wardrobe space and bedding. The ground floor bedroom located off the utility room has access to the terrace and has an en-suite.

The house has a very rural feel but is actually less than 1km from Carpentras, a view of which can be seen from the garden terrace. There are two supermarkets (Intermarche and Super U) and all the commerce expected within a city within a couple of minutes drive or a bike ride from the house and a further Intermarche Super at Sarrians a 5 min drive away. The house is ideally located to explore the Region and is large enough to accommodate two families comfortably and in complete privacy. I would like to compliment the gentleman who maintains the pool on a Saturday as he came and went almost without being noticed. Strongly recommended**

Super maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés deux semaines dans cette super maison en famille (3 couples et 5 enfants). Tout est parfait: l'accueil, la propreté, la literie, la piscine, etc... Un seul petit bémol: il n'y a pas de moustiquaire à la chambre du rez-de-chaussée et la région en est infestée donc prévoyez de la lotion anti-moustiques!

Owner's Response: Merci pour cette appréciation .Je veux juste signaler qu'en cet été 2015 c'est toute la France qui était infestée de moustiques ..pas seulement la Provence.

Dolce vita

  • 5 of 5

Superbes vacances en famille dans cette vaste et belle maison pleine de caractère et très bien équipée.

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le calme de cette propriété et son intimité, la superbe terrasse ombragée où nous avons pris tous nos repas, le grand jardin aux innombrables variétés de plantes, fleurs et fruits, la grande piscine à l'abri des regards et son coin ombragé.

Charmant accueil des propriétaires qui étaient disponibles pour régler le moindre problème.

Une documentation touristique est à disposition des locataires et la situation de la maison permet un accès rapide à de nombreux endroits de visites .

En résumé, 15 jours de bonheur que nous aimerions rééditer.....

Vacances relaxantes

  • 5 of 5

C'était déjà la 3e fois qu'on avait loué la maison de Catherine et Alain. Comme les années d'avant l'accueil était super sympathique et les propriétaires étaient toujours à notre disposition. La maison est très bien entretenu et le jardin ainsi que la piscine invitent à y passer des moments très agréables. Je recommanderai cette location à toute famille aussi avec enfant à bas âge.On a passé de très belles vacances relaxantes en famille. Grand merci aux propriétaires pour leur gentillesse lors du contact par email, leur accueil chaleureux et leur aide même après notre départ.

VACANCES DE REVE

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines dans cette magnifique propriété à deux pas de Carpentras. Nous espérons vraiment pouvoir y retourner dans un futur proche. Calme, repos et bien-être, voici le programme que vous proposent M et Mme Nicolas, les propriétaires des lieux. Nous pouvions nous rendre à Carpentras à vélo et même à pieds sans aucune difficuté, tout en étant à l'écart du centre ville. La région offre de multiples choix de sorties et de visites, sans pour autant parcourir trôp de kilomètres en voitures. La villa est superbe, très spacieuse, avec son grand jardin et sa magnifique piscine (très sécurisée). M et Mme Nicolas sont très accueillants et plûtot disponibles. Bref, rien à redire. Nous conseillons vraiment cette location à une famille avec enfants. Patrick & Anne (76).
