We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in September and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wishes to holiday in Provence. The villa is clean, very well equipped for all your holiday needs and has a superb garden area which gets the sun on it all day, a large swimming pool and a hot tub. There is an excellent gas barbecue, together with various eating areas both in the shade or in the sun. The villa is in a good location close to the main roads which give you easy access to all the surrounding sites you may wish to visit. We managed easy day trips to Avignon, Pont Du Gard, Orange, Gordes, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, L'Isle-su-la-Sorgue, Les Baux-de-Provence and Arles with enough time at the end of the day to spend relaxing by the swimming pool. There is an excellent well stocked small supermarket 5 minutes drive from the villa and as a bonus this is open on a Sunday morning (supermarkets in France tend to be closed all day Sunday). Emile the owner met us on arrival at the villa to show us around and explain everything to us. He was very friendly and helpful and quick to respond whenever we needed his advice from our initial booking of the villa to the end of our holiday. If ever we wished to holiday in Provence again we would not hesitate to book this villa.
"A tastefully decorated, beautiful old Provence farmhouse (Mas) in the countryside outside St Remy, set in a lush garden with a large pool. We particularly looked forward to this stay after seeing the beautiful pictures online and chatting (online and on the phone) to the friendly German owner (who doesn't live on site). However, we were quite disappointed on our arrival to find our accommodation - COLETTE - to be very dusty and full of spider webs. The child's bedroom was so dirty that our youngest son refused to sleep there. We spend the first evening cleaning, finding piles of dirt and dust under the beds - quite annoying, seeing we had already paid a 70 Euro final cleaning fee. The French-only speaking housekeeper got very upset when we complained and it all turned into a bit of a drama....anyway, she did apologize eventually and did clean the place the next day while we were out sightseeing. Once it was cleaned, we ended up having a lovely and comfortable stay. Hayfever sufferers will battle with the pollen from the plane trees though. The website also doesn't mention that the house backs directly onto quite a busy country road, but the road is quiet at night. There are several other apartments at Mas Dagan. There were 9 other guests, including a young child, staying there while we were there, but it wasn't noisy and everyone was friendly and sociable. So, apart from the initial lack of cleanliness, I found it a lovely, relaxing place to stay."
