About YONNET Jean-Jacques and Céline

Married with three children aged 15, 12 and 4, we had the house built in 2004. We have conceived it so that it would match our family's life style in a welcoming yet practical way.

We both work in the luxury hotel industry so that smile and cheerfulness are in our basic nature.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our "Happy House" and share with you all our tips about this wonderful region !

YONNET Jean-Jacques and Céline purchased this studio in 2004

Why YONNET Jean-Jacques and Céline chose Bagnols-en-Forêt

We fell in love with the place twelve years ago. We had come to see a nearby opening project for a resort (golf, hotel ***** and spa). At the time, my husband was working for the Four Seasons company.

We found here all the undeniably good reasons to quit Paris and settle to raise our kids !

What makes this studio unique

The house is near everything (the village is only a two minutes car ride away and can be accessed by bicycle without having to take the main road, it is steep, but can be done !) There you will find two bakeries, some restaurants, two bards, a small open air market, a chemist, doctors, nurses, the school, the Office of Tourism and even a small museum. The supermarkets are at 10 minutes car ride (SuperU, Intermarché, Leclerc). But at the same time we are in a charming environment in the middle of nature with a direct access to the hiking or horse riding paths. Our two horses : "Carbonero" and "Nouba" have access to one hectare of land adjacent to the house (not our land, but very convenient !).

We have implanted the house so that it would be away from the eyes of the neighbors (only one house is close to ours, but it has no view over the garden or pool). The pool is surrounded by nature, with flowers blooming all year round.

The fruits from the garden are a delicacy for the children (strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, blackberries,gooseberries, peaches, cherries, prunes, grapes). There isn't that many, but having the diversity is fun ! And the hens give us their extra fresh organic eggs every morning !

In Bagnols-en-Forêt you will find an organic producer of vegetables. In a "Marché Paysan" (gathering of local farmers), located only 10 minutes car ride from here, you will be able to purchase meat, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, wine, olive oil, honey, flowers...

Vacances en famille reposante au soleil!

  • 4 of 5

Merci beaucoup à Céline, Jean-Jacques et leurs enfants (surtout Cédric qui a beaucoup joué avec notre fils du même âge et qui a été ravi) pour leur accueil chaleureux. Nous avons également adoré avoir les œufs du poulailler à disposition, ainsi que les fruits du potager et la compagnie des différents animaux. Le studio correspond bien à la description, idéal pour 1 à 4 personnes, très bien agencé et bien équipé. L'endroit est très calme, bien entretenu et le village est charmant. Un supermarché tout proche avec pompe à essence. La mer et la plage sont à 15 minutes de route. Nous avons également pu profiter de la piscine qui dispose d'un volet très sécurisant lorsque que l'on a des enfants. Toute la famille Yonnet est discrète et bienveillante. Nous avons visités les villages aux alentours (Fayence...) , Cannes (30 minutes par autoroute ou 1h40 par la côte avec une vue magnifique), Saint-Tropez, les gorges du Verdon... et nous avons été beaucoup à Fréjus pour sa plage, son port, ses activités... Nous recommandons vivement ce studio qui est très bien situé et proche de tout. Merci encore à la famille Yonnet!

Une semaine parfaite dans un studio un peu petit mais super bien décoré et très, très propre!!! De plus nos hôtes étaient charmants et grâce à leurs conseils nous avons pu faire des visites très sympas! Le petit bonjour du matin de Flicka est très mignon. En bref, un petit coin de paradis... On conseille fortement!!!

Du Bonheur, rien que du Bonheur...

  • 5 of 5

Jean-Jacques et Céline,

Comment décrire votre studio à part par un grand MERCI ? Merci bien sûr, pour la mise à disposition de votre bien, ce qui m'a permis de découvrir l'arrière pays varois. Merci pour votre gentillesse au quotidien, votre altruisme, votre discrétion et pour vos conseils avisés. Merci d'avoir accueilli notre petit chien Jocker et à vos adorables animaux qui m'ont fait passer de bons moments .

J'espère pouvoir dans l'avenir revenir chez vous, car vraiment, on y est bien et que la région, j'en suis sûr me réserve encore plein de surprises.

Bien entendu, je ne saurais trop conseiller d'autres vacanciers de poser leurs valises chez vous et je suis certains que comme moi, ils ne voudront plus en repartir.

Owner's Response: Un grand merci à vous pour ce très gentil commentaire !!! Ce fut un grand plaisir de faire votre connaissance à tous les trois. Nous espérons avoir l'occasion de vous accueillir avec votre petit Jocker pour un prochain séjour quand vous voudrez ! Alors... à très bientôt :-))

We had a wonderful stay at “The happy house”. Celine and Jean Jacques were very friendly and excellent hosts. The house was convenient, with a nice shady patio where we had all our meals; the kitchen opens onto this terrace. The swimming pool was beautiful, very refreshing, without chlorine and indispensable taking the weather in consideration. Every morning Celine brought us freshly picked blackberries and currants which were used for a healthy vitamin rich breakfast. We got a lot of tips for sightseeing, restaurants, beaches, etc…

The garden was very nice with a lot of fruit trees and most important a table tennis. The horses were nice to see and the chicken sometimes produced fresh eggs.

We can highly recommend “The Happy House” to everyone.

Nous avons passé un séjour fort agréable dans une magnifique région qui allie les plaisirs de la Méditerranée et de l'arrière pays niçois , sans oublier le lac de St Catien.

La maison est fonctionnelle, chaleureuse, et très bien isolée (fraîche) avec une piscine très appréciée dans un joli cadre champêtre, au calme.

Nous y sommes retourné en couple dans le "studio du bonheur" en octobre avec toujours autant de plaisir!!!!

Nous sommes ravis de pouvoir vous accueillir à nouveau cet été . Dans cette attente, nous vous avons concocté une liste de sites magnifiques à explorer dans les environs pour votre retour !
