The house is beautiful, well decorated, clean, and large with plenty of space for everyone (there were 6 of us). The owner very kindly provided us with a (free) Christmas tree and baubles for my children to decorate- they were delighted. The house does not have central heating but the wall heaters in all the rooms kept us warm and as there is also a fire place (logs provided and included in the price) which was truly cosy and also provided more warmth and created a wonderful atmosphere. The owner Georges, and Patricia, the lady who looks after the house, were both very helpful and very patient (especially as we arrived two hours late). We had a lovely holiday over Christmas and New Year. Saint-Rémy de Provence itself is very beautiful and very near local attractions (do go and see the Roman sites- they are amazing!), so was a good choice. Thank you so much for having made us feel so welcome! :-)

We loved everything about the property. It is extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Valerie and her family were lovely warm welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Hope to come back soon. Highly recomended!!

The owners - Veronique and Philippe are charming attentive but not intrusive hosts. We were privileged to be told their “Grand Design” story (from ruin to a dream home). I found them inspirational and great conversationalists. Pre-arrival communication was very effective. On all occasions I got prompt helpful respond and excellent advice on our stay. Accommodation is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The patio on one side and terrace overlooking the pool on another were excellent places to enjoy a glass (or two or three …) of wine. The pool area provides an idyllic place to sit and read or to have a dip in the cooling waters while gazing up at the mountains. The location of the gite is a dream - quiet, great views and a fabulous infinity pool. You can walk, run or cycle for miles straight from the property (traffic free!). A lovely village of Fontaine de Vaucluse is 10 min walk down a steep hill. The village’s Sorgue river has plenty to offer, whether you prefer a slow-paced stroll, or you're more inclined towards action and adventure. There are plenty of enjoyable scenic restaurants and cultural landmarks along the river that deserve to be on your 'to-do' list: a mysterious spring, remains of the fourteenth century castle, the Petrarch Museum Library, the “Vallis Clausa” Paper Mill etc. In their own simple ways they all have stories to tell. You can take a canoe/kayak down the Sorgue river or go for a hike/walk (free hiking trail maps are available at the Fontaine de Vaucluse Tourist Office). A charming town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue known as the capital of antiques, with many shops and galleries, and a large Provencal market every Sunday, is 15 min drive away. We loved fascinating "perched" hill-top villages (Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes etc), spectacular vineyards and orchards of Luberon (all within 30-45 min drive). We visited and loved the Abbaye Notre Dame de Sénanque, Pont du Gard, Salon-de-Provence, Avignon (all famous sites + the light show at the Palais des Papes), Marseille and my most favourite Aix-en-Provence. Merci beaucoup, Véronique and Philippe, for sharing your dream place, yummy olive oil, fig jam and red wine (of course!) with us. We absolutely loved this place. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
