La Jassine rocks. Perfect home & great location
We stayed at La Jassine for two weeks in October as part of a House Swap arrangement. Prior to our arrival, we had positive communications with Paul and Sandra and decided to extend our originally planned one week stay by another week. This worked out extremely well for us.
La Jassine is a beautiful house in the countryside in Provence 70 kms north of Marseille. It is extremely well equipped and lacks for nothing. The house is just a few kilometres from Lourmarin which is one of the prettiest towns in France and which offers a range of very good eateries and artistic offerings. We visited a few of the local restaurants but in the main we cooked ourselves. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space to move around both inside the house and by the swimming pool.
We had good intentions regarding using the tennis court and swimming pool (both of which are very well maintained). However, whilst we rested and relaxed for quite a number of days, we also used it as a base for radiating day trips to the many exceptional scenic wonders of the area such as Milau (amazing viaduct), Nimes (old Roman amphitheatre, tower, town square, tree gardens), Avignon (massive castle), Orange (old Roman amphitheatre), Camargue (flamingos and white horses), Pont du Gard (old Roman aquaduct), Marseille (lovely buildings and scenery), L’Isle-Sur-La-Sorgue (great market in a very picturesque setting), etc
We emphatically recommend staying at La Jassine
Nola and John Davies
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at La Jassine. We are very happy to share such a wonderful place in the south of France with you. September is a great time to be in Provence and there is so much to do. Thanks again and we hope you will be able to come back soon. You would be most welcome.
The Amazing La Jassine
La Jassine is a beautiful homely house in an amazing setting with lovely patio area, swimming pool and tennis court. We spent many hours relaxing and eating our meals on the patio by the swimming pool. We were there in September so the water in the pool was cold but most of us still swam every day. The nearest boulangerie with delicious croissants and pain au chocolats was a 20 minute walk or a few minute drive away, in Vaugines, where there is also a great restaurant,Le P'tit Resto which we would recommend. Loumarin is a beautiful, picturesque village with lots of little shops, cafes and restaurants. It is about a 40-50 minute walk or 10 minute drive away. The morning weekly market at Curcuron is good fun at the Place d'Etang which featured in the film 'The Good Year'. We enjoyed a challenging forest walk up the hill behind the house . A very special holiday and we would love to come back!
Perfect for family time
My, what a wonderful week we had! It restored my flagging energy levels, and was such a wonderful place for us as a family. I can't recall when last, if ever, I had my 19 year old son playing with his little brother of 8, and his sisters all together. And they even managed to persuade their dad to play Marco Polo with us which was a first. There was a lot of pool play and the tennis court was great fun.
A very special time for us. We would love to return to the magic La Jassine.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we are delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay so much at La Jassine. It would be a pleasure to have you and your family come back to La Jassine again. Merci encore.
Beautiful secluded holiday villa.
Fantastic villa in a wonderfully secluded spot. We spent a week there and the time flew by. Having our own private tennis court and the pool to cool off in after a game was fantastic! The house is well equipped and perfect for lazing around by the pool or in the hammock. However, there is lots to explore in the surrounding area - Lourmarin is lovely, but for somewhere equally nice but less touristic Cucuron is perfect.
Sandra very quick to answer any questions we had. We would definitely return at some point!
Thank you for the very nice comments. We are delighted you enjoyed La Jassine and it would be a pleasure to welcome you back again soon. Thank you again.
Beautiful, serene rural Provence setting & villa
This was our 4th stay at La Jassine and we will be back. Need we say more?! The villa is comfortable and has all you need for a relaxing stay. It is surrounded by vineyards, orchards and birdsong. Hiking trails into the Luberon forest and mountains pass by the end of the driveway. Superb cycling roads and routes from the villa. There are numerous gorgeous villages with in 3-7 km, each with a weekly market. Sandra and Paul are delightful and responsive hosts. Enjoy!
We are so delighted to again welcome you back to La Jassine. It is special for us that you enjoy La Jassine as much as we do. We look forward to your next visit.
A beautiful place to relax and enjoy life
La Jassine is a wonderful house, it is very peaceful and private with a lovely view yet close to some great towns, Lourmarin especially is a gem. We loved the tennis court and the space upstairs.
We are delighted you enjoyed La Jassine. It is a wonderful place to be in the Fall. Provence is beautiful. Always a pleasure having guests from Amsterdam. Thanks again.
