Extraordinary week

  • 4 of 5

We had a blissful stay with friends and family at Le Chat in September 2016. The property, with a garden and an olive grove, is beautiful and amazingly quiet. The house itself is large and comfortable and the indoor and outdoor dining areas and the pool are just fantastic.

The owners are so helpful before and during the trip, with lots of tips about what to do and answers to all of your questions. They provide a number of booklets in the house's front hall, and we made good use of the one that showed local hikes. Sylvie, the on-site (lower level apartment) person who prepares the house for your stay and takes care of the laundering of all sheets and towels after your stay, is unobtrusive. She's such a nice woman, and is there when you need her, and not there when you don't. When we arrived, there was a bottle of local wine and fresh veggies for the garden on the kitchen table. The entire house was clean and well-maintained. We had also asked that Sylvie purchase some basics, and there they were, in the fridge.

Our beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms modern, and the house decor is charming. It is a great house for three or four couples and also for groups. The kids' room puts all the children together in one big room that includes a bunk bed.

We loved being in a part of France that is remote, with few obvious tourists, yet within an hour to 1 hour 15 minutes of historic centers, such as Arles and Avignon. The experience was truly local and we loved it, including buying goat cheese from the farm that lay just below us. We also took walks/hikes, two of which ended in small, medieval towns that were fun to wander through. The nearby town of Hippolyte is where we did our food shopping. It had a great boulangerie and two supermarkets, one of which had quite a bit of local fruits/veggies, meats, chickens, cheeses, wines. Hippolyte also has some very good dining options.

My only suggestion would be to provide fans. It got cool at night, and a breeze from a fan would have been very pleasant. That's just quibble though, for this was a dream vacation.

Tout a été parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons l'habitude depuis plusieurs années de nous retrouver à l'occasion du week end de Pentecote. Nous avons occupés plusieurs hébergements dans différentes régions de France.

Chacun d'eux avaient leur point faible: qualité de l'accueil, environnement tristounet, manque déquipement, post facturation de l'énergie ...

Monoblet est tout le contraire, environnement paradisiaque, bel accueil, magnifique demeure rien ne manque à tel point que l'on se sent trés vite "chez soi".

C'est trés dur d'en repartir..

Nous espérons avoir le plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau très prochainement. Olivier & team

Magnifique propriété très bien entretenue

  • 5 of 5

Amoureux de la campagne, de la tranquillité et des maisons de caractère, nous avons trouvé la perle rare pour notre séjour familial.

Tout était parfait! La description et les indications sur la maison sont tout a fait conformes...notre seul regret est de ne pas avoir pu profiter de cette belle piscine, à nous de revenir durant l'été! Très agréable séjour!

Un lieu magique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours de rêves au domaine du Chat. La maison est particulièrement spacieuse et agréable à vivre, même à nombreux. Elle est très bien équipée et très propre. Sylvie, la gardienne, a été très prévenante et nous nous sommes régalés des légumes du potager grâce aux conseils de Jacques, le jardinier. Les propriétaires toujours attentifs au bon déroulement du séjour. Nous avons pu profiter pleinement de ce séjour entre amis dans un cadre vraiment superbe. On reviendra !

Un coin de Paradis.....

  • 5 of 5

Mas offrant de belles pièces à vivre , très spacieuses , confortables et très propres . Nous nous sommes régalés , le bruit doux de la fontaine et des oiseaux nous berçaient et nous faisaient oublier l'agitation de nos grandes villes !!! Nous avons eu du mal à quitter ce lieu !!!

Sylvie la gardienne était à nos petits soins . Les propriétaires ont toujours gardé le lien même à distance avec nous en s'inquiétant de savoir si tout se passait bien . Bref nous étions cocoonés !!

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de ce séjour qui a réuni une grande famille dans un lieu propice à la détente et aux rires .....Un grand merci , on recommande cette demeure à tous ceux qui ont besoin de calme et de repos pour se ressourcer . Famille Roche
