Just spent a wonderful week at this lovely villa. The owners, Alain and Michelle, live just next door. They gave us a warm welcome and were really helpful throughout the week (our school level French was useful as they don't speak English!).
The summer kitchen, shady garden and swimming pool are great with plenty of places for sun worshipers and shade seekers alike. Our kids would have very happily spent the whole week in the pool.
All facilities you you could want are nearby: a restaurant and camp site shop around 100m from the villa; cafes and Carrefour supermarket a very short car journey away in Mornas village.
There's plenty to do locally: we visited the Ardeche Gorge a few times (swimming, canoeing and sightseeing) and would definitely recommend the Fortress at Mornas.
Fantastic Holiday!! If you are planning a quiet stay in the beautiful Provence countryside, surrounded some of the most spectacular scenery and cultural attractions, then The Residence du Platane is everything you could wish for! The house is absolutely stunning. It is a period property which has been completely renovated with style and eye for detail – the photos do not really do it justice! The kitchen is very well-equipped and nothing has been forgotten with regards utilities and practicalities. We went in August which was very hot, but the house has excellent air-con and also a charming rooftop terrace where we sat every night and enjoyed the view.
The bedrooms are spacious and well-planned. We were 3 couples and there were no arguments about rooms! But best of all are the bathrooms which are fun and stylish!
St Laurent is a beautiful village with a very good take-away Pizzeria and an excellent restaurant – Le Papet.
There is a big Casino supermarket 5 mins drive for all major shopping. From St Laurent there is plenty to see in the region. We visited Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Avignon, Nimes, the Pont Du Garde all on consecutive days! There is also a large collection of vineyards in the area.
I would highly recommend Residence du Platane – the property is superb and the hosts are very attentive and helpful.
