Wonderful surroundings in very nice house

  • 5 of 5

Such a quiet, peaceful surroundings with beautiful nature. The house is very comfortable . Our host was very nice and left us to enjoy the stay as we wished, but after recommending the beautiful music that we could play at the house. Good comfortable bed and sleepingroom and bathroom. Also we enjoyed the swimmingpool very much.

A comfortable and well equipped base from which to explore the area

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing two week stay here. It was a peaceful place, and we enjoyed mixing days staying at the property with days exploring the area. There is so much to see and do, we need to return!

'Our' Hideaway in the Olive Groves

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent a delightful week in this property. Our hosts were charming and helpful but certainly not intrusive. The location is ideal for visiting the many interesting villages in the area as well as convenient for Avignon and Orange. We couldn't fit everything in but Venasque and Gordes are a must.

I have to agree with a previous comment re the bed - I'm a bad sleeper but I slept like a log this week. Everything is supplied in the little kitchen (except food, obviously) for preparing simple meals as well as general consumables. There is even a bottle of the owners' own grown olive oil.

The pool is very refreshing particularly after a day out exploring.

If you are single or a couple looking for quiet and relaxation but with plenty of lovely places to visit in close reach, this takes some beating.

Perfect for a peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and peaceful week in this house which was very comfortable, well equipped and clean. Wonderful to sit in sun or shade in beautiful surroundings, lovely swimming pool. The house has everything it promised, was very easy and comfortable. Veronique and Christophe were great hosts, very welcoming and helpful.

The house is also in a good location for exploring the local area, we had good days out as well as lots of time at the house.

Highly recommended, and we hope to return another year.

Idyllic - 10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year holidaying in France and this was without a doubt the best gite we have stayed in. Beautifully presented with high spec kitchen, stunning bathroom with lashings of hot water and the biggest most comfortable bed ever.If you want peace and quiet then this is the place for you, the noisiest thing was the amazing red squirrels chasing each other round the trees. Also a great area if you want to run or ride, lovely quiet lanes through vineyards with just enough hills to make it a challenge. I was a lady running on my own and felt really safe. The lovely owners were always there if we needed them but at the same time respected our privacy.

The gite is located in what must be the prettiest part of France and there are sooo many lovely villages to visit all within 30-40 minutes drive. I could go on and on but my advice would be to book this gite for yourself and experience it yourself.
