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 VILLA

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines formidables au Mas Aloha en aôut 2016.

L’ accueil était chaleureux de la part de Alain et Catherine Nicolas. Tout y est, très grande living et salle à manger ( si mauvais temps),cuisine bien installée. Très grandes chambres et même la chambre du rez-du-chaussée a maintenant un moustiquaire. Mais avec le beau temps on peut vivre en-dehors. Grande terrasse ombragée à l’abri du vent où nous avons pris tous les repas. Un grand jardin avec pelouse verte, des plantes, des fleurs,… . Table de pingpong, table de football ,….Grande piscine un peu en bas et à l’abri des regards et les vents (Mistral).Nous conseillons vraiment cette location à des familles avec enfants.

Wij raden deze grote prachtige villa aan om een geslaagde vakantie door te brengen .

Parfait

  • 5 of 5

Superbe réservation dans ce grand mas provençal. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et prévenants. Nos vacances se sont déroulées à merveille (piscine, babyfoot, ping pong, découverte de la région...). La seule chose à dire : difficile de repartir... Merci

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.....
