Absolutely magical!

  • 5 of 5

I hardly know where to begin about how much we loved our stay in the incredible Mas de L'Olivier in Provence. It had been a dream of ours for many years to take our family on a vacation in France. Cristelle and Bruno's beautiful home in Provence helped make that dream a reality. We wanted an old stone farmhouse, away from the crowds. Check. We wanted a lovely pool and outdoor eating area. Check. We wanted nearby wineries and boulangerie. Check. We wanted to be within 60-70 minute drive from the coast, the Luberon and other Provençal sights. Check.

When we arrived on our first day, we were astounded at the beauty of the house and surroundings. Pictures did not do it justice. We loved going into the village of Rians in the morning, picking up fresh baguettes and croissants, fresh goat cheese and veggies from the market. We wound up having most of our dinners at home. We kept cancelling restaurant reservations because no one wanted to leave. We loved grilling out and then just hanging out on the patio all evening, drinking rose, talking, laughing and staring at the stars.

We also had fun learning to play pétanque, going for early morning walks and taking photos and hanging out at the lovely pool. My husband also made good use of the mountain bike.

Cristelle, Bruno and Anne were incredibly helpful and gracious. We thank you so much for our magic week in Provence. We'll be back!

Absolutely Stunning! Photos do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Wow Wow Wow! We stayed at the end of Aug 16 and had a wonderful time. The house was everything we could of wanted and more. We had 8 adults and 7 children (aged between 16 and 5) and there was so much room for everyone. The kids loved the outdoor space and the playroom and the adults enjoyed lazy days around the pool, followed by food and drinks in the garden. The pool was beautiful, with enough room for us all to enjoy. The views were stunning too. Some drove over from the UK (very long drive, around 11-12 hours from Calais) and some flew/got the train into Marseille. Those who travelled into Marseille got hire cars and the drive to the house was then about 40 minutes. The local area is stunning, with a beautiful market in Jouques on a Sunday (an approx. 10 minute drive). Plenty of Vinyards around, with the closest next door - which some of us went wine tasting. The property is between 2 villages - Jouques and Rians. There is a beautiful bakery in Rians, where we stocked up on fresh pastries every morning (I think they were shut on Monday). A car is needed as although the villages are not far, it is quite a walk (though you can use the bikes provided at the house). The house was equipped with everything we needed - just needed to get extra loo rolls and bin liners! We did not meet Bruno as he was away, but we did meet the housekeeper Anne, who was most helpful and showed us around the property - we also needed to contact her during the week and she was very quick to respond. Communications before our trip were excellent, with Bruno answering all of my queries (and I did have a few!). Aix au Provence is worth a trip and was about a 30min drive, though very busy getting into the town on market day (we went on Tuesday) but a fab market and beautiful place. We stayed a week and the weather was fabulous - had 2 heavy downpours, but the rest was blue skies. I could not recommended this place enough, if you want a week away from it all - then this is the place for you! Enjoy! We cannot wait to go back again :) Thank you!

Wundervolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 10 wundervolle Tage in dem Haus verbracht. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig in toller Umgebung (u.a. mehrere Weingüter),ist sehr stilvoll renoviert und in bestem (und absolut sauberen!) Zustand. Es bietet ausreichend Platz auch für mehr als 10 Personen. Der große Pool, der Garten mit Trampolin, Tischtennisplatte und Bouleplatz bietet für jeden etwas. Wir waren uns einig, dass das Haus noch schöner ist, als es sich auf den Bildern hier zeigt (und die sind ja schon schön).

Der Empfang durch die Hausverwalterin war sehr freundlich, der Eigentümer Mr. Chiochi war jederzeit erreichbar und hat uns auch bei Wünschen - Probleme gab es nicht - die nichts mit dem Haus zu tun hatten, geholfen.

Absolut empfehlenswert ohne jede Einschränkung!

Beautiful property with everything so well thought out. We all want to come back again! Peaceful and spacious. Thank you .

The only thing we would change was slightly warmer pool, but as the weather got warmer in the week, this improved. We hope to return!

C'est magnifique! Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about the beautiful stone house. My family and friends stayed for two weeks. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean (thanks, Christine!) -- and there was plenty of room -- inside and out -- for all of us. We used the laundry, cooked fabulous meals, and enjoyed the pool. This is a perfect place for a large group. Bruno was responsive and helpful and kind. We will be back. Thank you.
