Nous avons passé un bon séjour dans cette belle villa, le décor était très raffiné. Nous avions chacun une salle de bain, les chambres étaient spacieuses avec beaucoup de placards. Les propriétaires Sophie et Christophe nous ont accueillis à bras ouverts. Le jardin était sans vis à vis et la piscine nous a bien rafraichie. Notre petit chien en a bien profité aussi. Nous recommandons cette villa et reviendront avec plaisir. Merci à Sophie et Christophe

It is a peaceful sanctuary filled with everything you need to create an outstanding vacation for a family retreat or a gathering of friends. The villa is quite large and has a wonderfully equipped kitchen overlooking the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. The pool is a delight, especially after a day traveling to explore the area. The bedrooms and multiple baths are spacious and modern and allow a family to share the facilities with plenty of room for privacy. Serena ensured a perfectly seamless transition to our home in France. She took time to email answers to any questions and responded to questions about the region which helped us plan our trip. Additionally, she left folders with information about markets, sites, and restaurants that assisted us. We used this information as a guide. The location is perfect for seeing the many sites as well as exploring the markets. The town itself is very small-a delightful restaurant, a church and some homes as well as outstanding views, but its location to other areas of interest allows it to be a perfect place for a Provencal vacation. Additionally, it is only 10 minutes from a small town with grocery stores, restaurants and bakeries. Serena ensured we had a local couple available in the event we had questions or needed anything done at the villa. They were absolutely delightful and despite our poor French speaking skills, we communicated with them and enjoyed the local experience. I have used home exchanges in the past. Each has been a wonderful experience, but this home is one I would return to again and again. I would recommend this villa very highly. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of your France vacation by choosing the villa. In fact, the memories you create at La Roque will last a lifetime!! Enjoy your stay!

The gites were of a very high standard and very clean. We were given a warm welcome by Sandrine and Philippe . The pool area was superb and an early evening drink shared with the occupants of the other gite made for an entertaining evening with our lack of French and their lack of English!! Anglo French relations were bonded that evening - the children also enjoyed the rugby! ! Would highly recommend this property to a couple or a family. The location has been made even easier to reach by the Eurostar going to Avignon.
