The weather was blissfully hot & sunny so the excellent pool was very well used. The covered terrace was very welcome and leading directly from the kitchen meant we were able to eat every meal outside. The delightful owner Michèle made us very welcome and was most helpful. The spacious house was clean and well furnished, the kitchen exceptionally well equipped and with plenty of crockery and glasses. The silent air conditioning was very efficient. Vaison La Romaine and it's surroundings made for a very enjoyable time in Provence and we would love to return to this property. We travelled by Eurostar from Ashford to Avignon & hired cars at the TGV Station which meant a stress free journey, avoiding the busy french motorways on peak weekends. We would thoroughly recommend this property in every respect.

Although the weather was not what we had hoped for, we loved every minute of our holiday; thanks to your beautiful house, the beautiful environment, the lovely lunches in Beaumes de Venise and Vacqueras and the great wines we tasted (and imported to Holland). Thanks again! Best regards, Marianne
