Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday here from the 4th to the 19th of June 2016. Eight of us in total ranging from Ollie the toddler to grandpa Barry, with a few others in between.

On arrival (11pm due to late flight) we had a little trouble finding the house as the postcode didn't take us to the Villa. However after a frantic half hour of driving up and down various driveways in the dark we were thankfully flagged down by a very happy Francis and we were escorted to the house without being arrested.

Two bottles of wine awaited us from a local wine Co-op and our holiday began !

The house is fantastic, very spacious and simply furnished. Large galley kitchen although no oven but there is a great BBQ and plancha so we didn't miss the oven at all !

The heated pool was perfect and has steps which suited our 3 year old, although there is no shallow end as such, the depth is around 5 feet 6 inches across the length of the pool.

Plenty of outside seating/dining areas and lots of places to escape each other if you feel the need !

The nearest Supermarket is a Hyper U (French Tesco) in Pertius around 10 minute drive and is massive ! There are several wine co-ops nearby which sell great wine too.

The nearest Village (Villelaure) is about 2 miles away and has two Boulangeries, mini market, bar/cafe but not much else. Francis does provide several bicycles and we loved cycling to the village each morning for our bread and croissants !

There is a great Pizza van which parks up on your way into the village too (if you've had too may glasses of Rose to drive, With a bungee cord and some careful riding you can fit 4 large Pizzas on the rear rack of the Blue bike, ;)

Francis was very helpful when needed and wasn't intrusive at all, he and his wife live in an adjoining house but you wouldn't know as they totally leave you to it and you really feel like the place is your own.

There are no stone steps outside for toddlers to fall down, the pool is fenced and very secure and there is plenty of space for them to run around !

To conclude we had a very pleasant stay and thoroughly recommend the house.

Having been visiting France for over 15 years staying in similar places to varying degrees of success, I can confidently say that this was one of the best houses we have stayed in. The interior might be considered a bit minimalistic by some people, but we found it both practical and functional, lacking very little.

Très bon et je vous remercie, Francis

Amazing property in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay here. The house is gorgeous and the setting is idyllic. We stayed for two weeks in may and have already booked to go back next year! The house is well equipped and all rooms have their own shower/toilet. The surrounding area is beautiful and the owners Francis & Sylvie are the highlight of the trip!

We just returned from an unique stay!

  • 5 of 5

Together with our 4 kids, their partners and our grand child we experienced an unforgettable vacation at this peaceful location in the middle of nature, called 'la plaine' by the Villelaure locals.

The property is mirroring the passion and generosity which Francis and Sylvie are leaving behind after the very first encounter.

The way all is arranged and taking care off shows a genuine care for what guests in vacation mood are looking for.

Highly recommendable if you are looking for a family moment in a natural and peaceful environment with privacy for all.

Rik, Martine&co

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Vous souhaitez passer un moment agréable et détendu avec vos enfants (deux couples) et leur progéniture (soit trois enfants, de deux ans et demi à cinq ans) : c'est le lieu idéal. Question d'espace, d'abord : cinq chambres, chacune pourvue de sa douche et de ses commodités, et distribuées de telle façon que les plus vieux peuvent, à l'étage, préserver leur sommeil s'ils le souhaitent ; en enfilade, une grande salle à manger, une longue cuisine, un sympathique petit salon dont les enfants spontanément ont immédiatement fait leur domaine, et un immense salon aux hautes baies vitrées pourvu de canapés accueillants... tout cela est très fonctionnel, très bien pensé ; sans compter la terrasse abritée, à l'ouest, où une grande table permet de prendre les repas devant la fraîcheur reposante d'un saule pleureur séculaire. Question de sécurité ensuite : la propriété offre aux enfants un vaste terrain de jeu et d'exploration arboré, et entièrement clos ; la piscine est parfaitement sécurisée elle aussi, un enfant en bas âge ne peut y avoir accès sans qu'un adulte l'accompagne. Question confort également : vous entrez dans un lieu propre, les matelas sont neufs, les douches à l'italienne offrent une eau abondante et immédiatement chaude, l'équipement (vaisselle, appareils ménagers) est suffisant... Un seul manque, pour qui vient avant l'été et n'a pas à se soucier de préserver la fraîcheur et a plus l'habitude de mijoter des petits plats que de manier le barbecue et la plancha : pas de four, aïe... mais ouf, Sylvie, la propriétaire, vous prête immédiatement une cocotte en fonte qui cuira aussi bien vos poulets et autres rôtis ! Car question accueil, il faut dire que les relations avec Francis Granon et son épouse sont d'emblée extrêmement cordiales et sous le signe du sourire. Non pas un sourire de convention ou de façade, mais le sourire authentique, généreux, d'hôtes accueillants et attentifs, désireux de vous faciliter la vie et de faire de votre séjour une réussite. Cinq étoiles, sans réserve !

Owner's Response: Quel bonheur de confier sa maison à Sylvie et Pierre…et à leur charmante famille aux enfants adorables ! ! Si votre séjour a été une réussite c’est que vous faites partie des vacanciers les plus sympa qui aiment, apprécient et respectent des lieux où tout est mis en œuvre pour que les vacances soient un moment d’exception. Vous faites maintenant partie des clients que la maison ait accueilli qui nous ont laissé un excellent souvenir. Un grand merci encore pour le soin que vous avez apporté à la maison et pour ce touchant commentaire qui nous fait réellement plaisir. Francis & Sylvie

Impeccable

  • 5 of 5

Nous recherchions pour nous, nos enfants et petits-enfants un endroit calme où tout le monde pourrait y trouver sa place (soit au total 10 personnes). Un endroit où nos petits enfants seraient en sécurité et trouveraient l’espace suffisant pour se distraire.

Pour les plus grands le confort, l’aménagement de la maison était important.

Nous avons trouvé ce que nous cherchions au-delà de toute espérance. Tout d’abord l’accueil de Francis et de son épouse nous a mis tout de suite à l’aise. La découverte des lieux n’était pas encore terminée que les enfants avaient déjà trouvé la chambre à leur convenance. L’ensemble des locaux correspondait exactement à ce qui était prévu. Impeccable de propreté et de confort. Chambres et pièces spacieuses, grand salon avec TV pour tous pour les J.O. et sans oublier la grande salle de jeux avec ping pong, boules de pétanque babyfoot matériel de fitness et jeux divers

Les propriétaires n’étaient pas avares de conseils ni de renseignements sur la région et ils apportaient régulièrement leurs soins à l’entretien de la piscine, très tôt le matin, avec beaucoup de tacs et sans que nous puissions nous en apercevoir.

Notre séjour fut un régal. Bravo et merci encore pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour nous avec votre gentillesse habituelle et qui pourtant n’était pas prévu dans le contrat.

Un cinq étoiles. Recommandé.

Chantal et Jacques Août 2016.

Owner's Response: Toujours très agréable d’avoir ce type de commentaire et de ressentir des clients heureux, surtout lorsqu'ils ont fait le choix de venir aux Lombardes et qui ont apprécié le soin que nous apportons à notre maison et à l’accueil et à l'attention que nous leurs réservons. Vivre en Provence est un luxe que nous aimons faire partager ! Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de ces charmantes personnes. Francis & Sylvie

Une semaine inoubliable à VILLELAURE

  • 5 of 5

"Au nom de tous les miens", je dirai "Le bonheur est aux Lombardes". Quel accueil! Sylvie nous attendait pour nous donner rafraîchissements et explications concernant la superbe propriété. Quel calme! Quelles bonnes odeurs de pins et d'essences provençales! Quel espace, un vrai coin de paradis! Chacun disposait de sa suite parentale, chacun a pu profiter de la très belle piscine, rien ne nous a fait défaut.

Et quelle générosité de la part de Francis, avec ses produits bio, sa gentillesse et son authenticité,

Venez "Aux LOMBARDES" vous ne serez pas déçus par cette jolie maison provençale très bien située, pour visiter les villages typiques aux alentours (Lourmarin, Lacoste, Roussillon...sans oublier Ansouis et son grain de sel).

Si l'occasion nous est donnée, nous reviendrons les yeux fermés chez Sylvie et Francis.

Owner's Response: Ce commentaire nous fait plaisir surtout venant de la part de personnes qui ont eux aussi des chambre d'hôtes sur la Côte d'Azur . Ce fut un plaisir de d'accueillir cette joyeuse et sympathique famille venue fêter l'anniversaire des 70 ans d'un papa dynamique et nous gardons un bon souvenir de leur séjour . Francis & Sylvie
