Ein wunderschönes Feriendomizil in Pernes-la-Fontaines

5 of 5
Seit nunmehr 18 Jahren fahren wir in die Provence mit einer größeren Gruppe von Ehepaaren. Diesmal (Okt. 2016) in das Haus von Kirsty und Simon, der ein phantastischer Vermieter ist. Bei Ankunft hat uns Simon herzlich, mit vielen und guten Tipps, einer reich gefüllten Obstschale, sowie schönen Blumenarragements und einem leckeren Wein im Kühlschrank, begrüßt. Wir waren begeistert von dem geschmackvoll eingerichteten Haus in einem liebenswerten Ort in der Provence. Es hat an nichts gefehlt und alle Geräte, Pfannen, Kochtöpfe laden zum täglichen Kochen ein, wenn da nicht auch die vielen guten Restaurants wären, die man natürlich auch gerne besucht. Der Garten hat zum Sonnenbaden eingeladen, mit optimaler Ausrichtung nach Süden. Zum Einkaufen kann man das Auto ruhig stehenlassen, denn alle Geschäfte sind gut zu Fuss zu erreichen und das Angebot ist auch noch im Oktober überwältigend. Die Betten und Bettwäsche ist hochwertig und luxuriös. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen gerne wieder!

Lovely Gite

5 of 5
Bernadette and her family were very welcoming and made our visit very pleasant. The Gite is exactly as described, very clean and with enough kitchen utensils etc to make a lovely meal. The Gite is well positioned for lots of day trips. We visited Avignon, Orange, Gordes, Rousillion and kayaked to near the Pont Du Gard. Thank you Bernadette for your hospitality. My daughters still miss your little Sausage Dogs! We will be back one day!

Delightful old farmhouse and garden in a picturesque village

4 of 5
The house is big, well-appointed and equipped, and the rooms characterful. The garden is lovely, with several shady corners as well as a largeish lawned area. The swimming pool is on the small side but we had great fun in it. We ate outside most evenings at the large table on the terrace - but we needed insect repellent as the area has tiger mosquitoes - not dangerous but they bite a lot. The shops, restaurants and markets of Pernes are a short walk away and there is plenty to see and do in the region. Altogether, a very enjoyable holiday indeed.
