Fantastic stay in superb accommodation

5 of 5
We stayed for 5 nights over Christmas with our 1 year old daughter. We loved everything about the property. It is extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Valerie and her family were lovely warm welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. Hope to come back soon. Highly recomended!!

Great village location

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this comfortable house, which is very conveniently situated on the edge of Faucon. We enjoyed being able to walk to the excellent boulangerie and to the nearby restaurants, where we had some delicious meals. One of us also enjoyed pleasant walks on the quiet little roads and tracks in the surrounding countryside. Nathalie provided a warm welcome and looked after us very well. We loved renewing our acquaintance with the surrounding towns and villages (especially Vaison and Nyons) and revisiting favourite vineyards and co-ops, as well as some excursions to places we hadn't visited before (such as Buis-les-Baronnies). The onion tart at La Loupiote (on the road out of Vaison towards Carpentras) remains the best we've ever had! We left Faucon laden with lovely wines and Nyons olives. The weather was beautiful most of the time, though we did have one or two exciting thunderstorms. It's the first time we have stayed in a house without a fireplace and we would certainly have missed that if we had had more rainy or chilly days - a fire is cheerful even if not strictly needed for warmth! We had been slightly concerned beforehand about potential noise from the road. In fact this bothered us very little; the only disturbance came from a village party celebrating the end of the grape harvest and this seemed well justified! We noted some previous comments about noise from agricultural activities - these were no more than you would expect in any village or country location and did not bother us in the slightest. The house is well-equipped. We prefer a cafetiere (press) rather than a coffee machine, so we bought one and donated it for the benefit of future visitors. We also added to the collection of clothes pegs!

Great location for cycling

4 of 5
A wonderfully clean apartment in the picturesque village of Venasque with great views of Ventoux. Martine was very helpful and friendly from my initial contact and was very hospitable when we arrived and during our stay. The purpose of our stay was for cycling and the area does not disappoint with some fantastic climbs on quiet roads, with the base of Mont Ventoux a short 45 min ride away. Would certainly not hesitate to recommend the apartment for anyone looking to stay in this beautiful area of Provence. Merci beaucoup Martine :-)
