It's in a lovely little village with a couple of restaurants and a bar/café. The kitchen diner area was just what was needed for a sociable house. It was very well equipped. Beds were all comfortable and lovely linens. The showers were great with decent water pressure. The pool was also used every day by our group and we made use of the BBQ too. There is a local wine cooperative doing a really good selection of Ventoux Rosé at the other end of the village. Worth a visit. Fred was brilliant in answering our questions when needed and his English is thankfully better than my French! Thankyou for a lovely holiday Fred!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Natalie and Frederic were very welcoming on our arrival and showed us around. The property has been fully modernised, very well equipped and was immaculately clean. The owners were very attentive and were easily contactable by email and quickly sorted out any queries that we had. We are a family of 5 and found the villa spacious and the pool side area with outdoor eating area was well used for family meals in the evening. The pool provided welcome relief from the heat and was an adequate size for our needs, however it is unheated and we did find it a little cool on some cloudy days. The Vila is in a private road on the outskirts of Mazan and is well situated to see the sites in the surrounding area including many local vineyards and Mont Ventoux. Mazan is old town with a selection of restaurants and shops including a lovely bakery. Whilst we were staying in the last two weeks of July were was a fete for a few days which provided entertainment in the evenings including fairground rides and live music. We mainly cooked in the villa and bought most of our groceries in UExpress which is about 5 minutes drive away. There are other larger supermarkets such as Lidl and E.Leclerc in nearby Carpentras about 15 minutes drive. We explored the local area and visited a number of sites in the surrounding area including Carpentras, Mont Ventoux, Avignon and Apt where we saw stage 19 of the Tour de France. The drive to Apt takes you over the hills through some very spectacular scenery. Overall, a fantastic villa, comfortable and spacious, and well situated to explore beautiful Provence. We would definitely love to go back.
