The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was reading "The Secret Garden" during our stay at Domain Pre Joly, and it seemed so fitting -- we drove through a canopy of trees, the gates opened, and we entered an oasis of calm and beauty. The rental house is part of a larger compound that includes the owner's house, a living space for the housekeeper, a pool house, a pool, and a large lawn. Next to the pool is a large covered patio where we ate most of our meals.

The house itself is charming -- very nicely decorated, great use of space. Each bedroom has a whimsical theme -- Hermes scarves, Coco Chanel, and one with black and white photos of celebs including Madonna. The beds are extremely comfortable. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a shower. The bathrooms are gorgeous, with rainshower heads and beautiful tile.

Anne Martin, the owner with her husband, Vincent, was a gracious and thoughtful host. She arranged to have a catered dinner waiting when we arrived, a delicious treat after a long day of travel. She also stocked the fridge with groceries from a list we provided. On the first morning we were there, we looked out the window to see Vincent waving, holding a bag of fresh pastries and baguette. We felt so welcome -- as if we were staying with family! And Carolina, the housekeeper (who also has an adorable dog) made sure the house and pool area stayed neat and tidy. Everyone in our party of six, including my husband and me, our 9 and 11 year old daughters, and my husband's parents, felt comfortable and well cared for during our entire stay.

While you are there, be sure to make the trip to Palais du Papes and Pont de Gard -- two of our favorite excursions. We also enjoyed a trip to St. Remy for a lunch and a tour of the asylum where Vincent Van Gogh painted over 150 paintings. We ate at two restaurants recommended by Anne -- La Coeur d'Honneur, in a charming courtyard with excellent food and service, and Michelin-starred Le Prieure, which was spectacular.

I've stayed at some amazing VRBO properties over the years, but this one was by far the best. We hope to return again someday!

Tasteful Luxury in the Avignon Countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Anne and Vincent are the most gracious and friendly hosts. From the minute we arrived through gate bringing us through a canopy of trees, we know we had come to the right place! Everything was perfect , from the private pool/pool house to the fabulously decorated guest house with French Fashion themed bedrooms and bathrooms, to the warmth of the owners . The little touches, like a welcome fruit basket and croissants and bread the first morning were amazing! The pool area felt like a 5 star resort! We will definitely be back for a future visit to Domaine Pre Joly!

My husband and I traveled with our son and his wife and our daughter and her fiance´. Upon our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the owners, Anne and Vincent. They proudly showed us around the house and informed us of all we needed to know.

The house exceeded our expectations. It is absolutely gorgeous! It's very upscale, beautifully decorated and immaculate. The pool area and

grounds are spectacular. Only wish we had more free time to relax in this idyllic setting.

The house is well located. It is an easy drive to Avignon as well as other interesting towns and villages in Provence.

Anne was kind enough to go food shopping for us before our arrival and stocked the house with even more than we anticipated. Our first night we sat outside by the pool and enjoyed the most delicious roasted chicken with potatoes and more. Then the following morning, Anne surprised us with fresh croissants!

Vincent and Anne are such a lovely couple who were extremely helpful and responsive when we had questions.

I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a 5 star VRBO that has it all, look no further...This is it!

We so much enjoyed our stay at Domain Pre Joy. Anne and Martin were wonderfully gracious to us and so very flexible with our schedule. They took care of our every need: shopping so that we would have a full refrigerator when we arrived - including a prepared dinner! They helped us find a personal guide, Alain, who was so much fun to spend time and show us the areas.

The house is immaculate and very very upscale. This is a special place to visit with everything that one could ever hope for. It is a little piece of paradise within easy reach of so many places to visit and see. If we return to France, we will certainly stay here.

We so much enjoyed our visit.

Best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

We often use VRBO. This place surpassed all our expectations for a vacation home.

The building is gorgeous. Although it's origin was in 1873, the complete, and first class remodel makes this home as luxurious as any 5 star hotel might be. In addition, the hosts took great care of us, with cleaning service every day.

We were three couples. Sometimes, in three-bedroom homes, there is one great bedroom and then others of somewhat lesser roominess and quality. That was not the case here. Each bed/bath suite was wonderful to stay in.

The kitchen was amazing. It was furnished with all we needed to cook many fun dinners. There were great indoor and outdoor dining options available. While we are discussing the outside, the pool and the seating around the pool made us feel a bit conflicted that our busy schedule of sight-seeing did not allow more time just to stay on the property and enjoy it.

This property is in a terrific location. We made day trips to Avignon, Orange, wine country, Nimes, Arles, Uzes, and Pont du Gard; all wonderful for tourism.

If we had one minor nit about the property, it was that the internet was on the slow side. Nevertheless, with all the great positives about this property we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
