About Astrid Megel

I was born, in Alsace-Lorraine, moved the Paris region with my family in 1950. After having worked in Banking in Germany, real estate in South of France and run a Michelin rated Alsatian Restaurant in Paris, I moved to Santa Barbara, California, where I have spend many years in restaurant and high end catering business. I retired in 2005, and decided to spend some time in Provence, where I now have the great pleasure to accomodate my international guests at Villa Vanesse.

Astrid Megel purchased this villa in 2005

Why Astrid Megel chose Sarrians

This villa was chosen because its very special location, the size of the property, the quality of construction, and all the possibilities the floor plan was offering. We wanted to renovate the villa and create an open/american kitchen, a bathroom for each bedroom, an additional private quarter (the studio appartement) in the same building, and our priotity was a very quiet location. Having lived in cities all my live, this was the little peacefull paradise I was looking for.

What makes this villa unique

The property which offers great privacy because it is tucked away on a private lane, in a very quiet residential area, is also located at walking distance to the center of the village and a main Supermarket and only 10 to 20 minutes away (by car) from major towns, Carpentras, Avignon, Orange, Gigondas, Chateauneuf du pape, L'Isle sur la sorgue. From the large second floor terrasse we can enjoy the view on the famous Mont Ventoux that was made so popular by the Tour de France.

Family from USA

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults arrived to this beautiful home and enjoyed the most relaxing vacation. We had spent a very hot and "tourist" week in Paris and then wrapped up our stay at this beautiful home of Astrid's. She was great to work with during our planning stages and welcomed us at this home with some basic food after a long ride from Paris. Her hospitality was very warm and if we had any issue, she was prompt to respond because she resides close by. Her advise of where to shop and enjoy the city of Sarrians was very helpful. She also directed us to the right flea markets and enjoyed the local vegetables, fruits and most of all the cheeses (that went well with all the wine we bought at the local domaines)

You will not regret booking this residence because we definitey plan to return. It has ALL of the conveniences of home away from home. It is secluded enough so you feel like you are definitely out of the mainstream and can relax. We particulary enjoyed the individual room A/C controls and the spacious arrangements to accomodate 5 adults.

We will be returning. Thank you Astrid :-) Au revoir

Fantastic villa! Wonderful location and superb facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in the villa and Astrid was a fantastic host. The heated pool was perfect and the villa itself was extremely well kitted out with everything we needed. The bed linen was clean and the beds were large and comfortable. The villa is a short walk from Sarrians which is a pretty village with nice bakeries, a little shop and a couple of nice restaurants. There are also lots of larger towns nearby if you felt like seeing and doing more.

There isn’t anything we would have changed.

It felt very homely and we were really sad to leave! We hope to come back again next year.

Thank you Astrid for such a lovely holiday.

Girls vacation in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a multi generation girls only vacation at Villa Vanesse, my mom, sister, niece and her friends, and I can’t say enough about the place and its gracious owner Astrid. The house is well planned, with top quality equipment and furnishings and the exterior beautiful. We had almost all our meals al fresco out by the pool and a couple of evenings the girls grilled in the outdoor kitchen.

Right from the time I contacted her last fall Astrid was extremely helpful and it was a pleasure to work with her. There were two bottles of rosé chilling in the fridge for us when we arrived, plus the fixings for breakfast the next morning, a welcoming gesture indeed... What more can I say, this is truly a haven of peace in Provence!

Propriété et prestations excellentes à tous égards

  • 5 of 5

Les aménagements intérieurs et extérieurs sont de qualité et bien réfléchis. Il y a tout ce dont on pourrait avoir besoin.

L’accueil et la gentillesse de la propriétaire sont à souligner, cela jusqu’à la présence à notre arrivée d’un panier garni pour un très bon petit déjeuner, plus du vin pour les repas suivants.

En résumé, nous avons passés un excellent séjour.

6 Americans in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fablous! The villa was exactly as described. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, who could not have been nicer. We recommend this to all Americans as the owner is fluent in English and happy to answer questions, or solve any issues with a smile and a great laugh. The house was immaculately clean and perfect for a relaxing vacation taking day trips all around Provence. Great time!

Fabulous villa and excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vanesse is a beautiful and charming villa. The location is secluded yet close to numerous places of interest... Avignon, many vineyards, Sorgues... so much to see!

Many restaurants in the area to recommend as well, Chez Serge, Le Vivier... And should you want to cook yourself the kitchen and tools in the villa are first class. So much to see and do! But the villa itself, with the lovely heated pool tempts one to simply laze in your bathing suit (or without) and soak in the sun.

Astrid, the owner, is as gracious and charming as the villa and when we had a problem it was solved so quickly it was a distant memory before we had to leave.

A super spot to spend a vacation. Thank you Astrid!
