It is a beautiful area to explore either on foot or by bike. The place itself is well equipped with everything we needed. It was all clean and tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend it. The owners are very helpful and provided great information.

We were three couples and the house suited us perfectly, it is spacious and the swimming pool is in our view a necessity. The contact person was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this property.

                                                                                              Our family of six adults and three children (6, 8 and 10) have just spent a fabulous two weeks staying in Bastide du Soleil. The house was comfortable for this number, with each of the couples having a double bed, and the kids sharing the bunk room. The rooms have adequate space, with most having some storage for clothes. We visited in early September, and fortunately the weather was glorious, meaning that the pool was very well used, especially by the kids. Perhaps the strongest feature of the house is the beautiful view from the terrace. We had many wonderful family dinners around the outside dining table, watching the moon come up and looking across to the floodlit church tower in Saint Romaine en Viennois across the valley. The situation of this house is perfect for exploring the surrounding region. I won’t detail all our outings, but every day we went out to wonderful sights such as the Roman and medieval sites at Vaison La Romaine – 4km away, the fabulous Vaison market (get there early to avoid a parking nightmare), the Roman theatre in Orange, the Papal Palace in Avignon, Mt Ventoux, a truffle hunt, beautiful river swimming holes, the Pont du Gard, the many medieval villages a short drive away, etc. To be fair, my review should also include a few minor concerns about the house : • While we prepared lots of great family meals, the kitchen is a bit of a struggle, with limited bench space. It is quite well equipped though, although we did have to buy a couple of extra tea cups. • Europeans may be used to the tiny quarter-circle showers, but we Australians found them pretty tight. You just can’t afford to drop the soap! There is one good sized shower for the ‘fuller figure’ however. • While most of the beds were very comfortable, the mattress in the ‘outside room’ left a little to be desired, with a ridge down the middle that interrupted sleep at times. This holiday was a major expedition for us. Bringing nine people across the world for a long-dreamed-of French holiday required lots of planning and information. To get it right, I had to book the house nearly two years out – long before most owners ‘open their bookings.’ Claire, the owner of this house was excellent in all respects. Unlike many owners, she was happy to take a booking well in advance, and always responded to my (sometimes seemingly inane) queries well. We are certainly glad we chose Bastide du Soleil for the first half of our French holiday.
