We stayed here with our friends, so there were 4 adults and 4 children (9, 8, 4 & 3 yrs). We travelled on the Eurostar, so was really easy getting off at Avignon, collecting the hire car and driving 15 minutes to the house. Cheaper and less stressful than flying for sure. The layout of the property is perfect; we had half the upstairs each, with 1 shared bathroom (shower only), plus separate shower room and another 2 toilets. The living room was big enough to fit everyone in and very cosy and the outdoor seating areas were great. We mainly ate at the large covered table and then the adults chilled in the outdoor sofas finishing the wine while the kids played! The kitchen is very well equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave and oven/hob; plus utility room for washing and a gas bbq outside. The swimming pool and garden were fantastic - we spent so much time here and the kids loved it. The house is located about 10-15 minutes walk into the centre of Chateaurenard; where there is a choice of places to eat. We really liked Le Castel, Le Baroque and Le Central (the waitress here was fantastic and very friendly.) You'll need a torch for the walk home though. There are boulangeries galore also, so fresh croissants/bread are only minutes away! We also liked the fact that it was located a short drive from numerous towns to visit; in particular we enjoyed St Remy (20 mins - Weds morning market is good), Sur La Sorgue (30 mins - sunday morning market is worth a visit), Nimes (45 mins) and Avignon (10-15 mins). Would definitely recommend a visit.
We loved our visit, the property was full of a great deal of character. The inside was a typical provencal style building with a beautiful kitchen. What really makes the property special though is the outside space. From the enormous Boules pitch, to the small orchard and finishing with the amazing poolside and accompanying poolside lounge. Despite the many interesting places surrounding Chateaux Renard, we barely left as the home was so perfect for us. This is the perfect get away from reality and very typical of southern France. We very much enjoyed out stay and would highly recommend it.
