Our family group of 7, stayed very comfortably in 'Grand Chene' at short notice, for 10 days, this Easter. Everything was organised quickly, & nothing was any trouble for Philippe and Sylvie, our hosts, who live on site, in an adjoining property. They bent over backwards to ensure that we had everything we needed, and to tell us all about the area, & how to make the most of our stay in the Ceze valley area of Provence.
The French villa is stunningly converted from an original medieval barn adjoining the owner's property; you wouldn't know that anyone else is around - as every attention to detail has been considered to preserve the privacy of anyone staying in one of the 2 holiday homes, adjoining the owner's home.
We loved the modern facilities combined with oak beams; and the tasteful decor throughout, including the open plan living area, and especially the master bedroom! - this gave us a luxury unlike anything we have ever experienced before, even on our honeymoon! A comfortable double bed, with luxurious canopy & mosquito net hanging from the tall ceiling, made us feel like kings & queens. Along with the Victorian style freestanding bath, next to the bed, cordoned off tastefully with wooden beams to create a large 'boudoire' truly like nothing else we have ever experienced!
We were welcomed with a comprehensive basket of goodies, to start us off on our holiday, and to enable us to relax, before venturing into the local town, to stock up on provisions. The local boulangerie, supermarket and butcher came up trumps, providing good quality food to meet our needs, amply. Philippe even told us all about local vineyards and outlets, where we could sample the tastes of France & find memorabilia to remind us of our stay.
We came in early April, when the temperatures were sub-zero in the UK, and we experienced lovely warm weather throughout our stay, including some stunning, hot sunshine on some days. This enabled us to really enjoy exploring the local and surrounding area, to the full.
It wasn't warm enough to use the lovely swimming pool, but we had ample deck chairs to relax in the sunshine beside the pool, in the secluded outdoor area. This has far reaching views to the local area, and an outdoor kitchen, which the owners had just fitted with a brand new outdoor barbecue. Luxury outdoors, as well as in.
We recommend Mas des Fonts wholeheartedly to you; a luxurious setting for any type of celebration, & to make you feel truly blessed! Enjoy :)
