Fantastic property, excellent location, quality service
We've (three families) recently returned from a fantastic holiday in Cornillon.
The booking process was very simple, Eric (the owner) answered questions very quickly and provided great information on the local area, including simple directions to the villa.
The Villa is fantastic, it works really well for different families as the bedrooms are split into three different areas with their own (very large) bathrooms and toilet rooms, with a central living room, kitchen and dining room, although we never used it as there is a great outside seating area which is covered for shade.
The quality of the equipment is very high and in very good condition.
The pool is large and was used every day, plenty of space in the garden for games and space to relax in the sun.
The local village of Goudarges is very pretty and vibrant (for a small village), with great cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlours, bakery and supermarket, along with markets on different days.
There is lots to do in the local area, we enjoyed kayaking, visiting the caves, treetop adventure, walking to name a few.
Alain (the local contact) showed us round the property when we arrived and also took the keys when we left, very good service and arrived in 30 minutes when we needed him (turned out it was me not doing it properly!).
The security deposit was repaid very quickly (within two days of leaving) and the communication with Eric from start to finish has been great.
I certainly recommend the villa.
A very well located house, perfect for big families
We really liked staying at this house. The layout of the house worked well with the four families all having separate or private bathrooms off their bedrooms. The house is very well equipped, both in terms of sleeping accommodation and bathrooms but also in the kitchen and utility rooms. The communal areas are spacious and there is a large TV and comfortable sofas to watch it from. There is a big garden, well looked after with a swimming pool, table tennis, deck chairs, dining table and chairs, etc, etc.
The location is great, the house is next to a couple of beautiful villages, Corillon and Goudargues with easy access to amenities, restaurants, shops, etc. In Goudargues we visited some of the nice restaurants and enjoyed the hospility of the people.
We can easily recomend staying in this wonderful house. We would love to come back some day!!
Thanks Eric - Greatings from Iceland :-)
Beautiful home in great southern France location!
We saw this home and loved the pictures online! The owners were very easy to deal with and were so helpful in providing information on the house and activities in the surrounding area. This property is amazing! We arrived to find a beautiful swimming pool on a property with lovely gardens and lavender bushes around the house. The house itself is very large, modern, lots of natural light and well equipped with all of the amenities. The layout is great as there are 3 separate sleeping areas in the home, allowing for multiple couples/families to be together while having a large open concept living and dining room. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and so the house had many things to occupy them besides the swimming pool-a trampoline, swing set, soccer/ other outdoor toys and bicycles to explore the nearby vineyards and villages. There are a ton of French books and movies to suite all ages-you don't need to bring anything. It have our kids an opportunity to practice their French!
It is so peaceful and relaxing to be at this place. We ate all of meals outside in the covered terrace and saw the stars at night. There are so many great places to explore nearby from this house.
We had a quick question about the swimming pool and the caregiver of the house arrived quickly within a few minutes and answered our question. He was vey helpful and responsive.
We are already planning to come back from Canada in 2 years. Thank you for an amazing vacation!
Fantastic House in lovely area!!
Fantastic, lovely house in a wonderful area, very relaxing.
The owners and Alain were very friendly and helpful and the house was perfect for our needs, suitable for those with children and without. Our 2 year old daughter had a wonderful time, a fantastic range of toys for them, especially in the garden, the Wendy house, trampoline and little car were a big hit!!
We all really enjoyed ourselves, enjoying some special meals on the lovely terrace and some great trips around the local area. We especially enjoyed meeting Fabiola at the local vineyard, a lovely lady and fantastic wine!
We would love to come back, the house and facilities are fantastic.
Great house, fantastic location and great owners, can definitely recommend!
Many thanks Sarah and Ben. Looking forward to welcoming you again in our properties in Provence, Paris or in Feucherolles 15 minutes from Versailles and its chateau.
Enjoy La matignone and smell the roses !
Un écrin de verdure au calme
Nous avons passé le week-end de Pentecôte à 4 familles avec des enfants allant de 8 mois à 6 ans. Tout est adapté pour eux, la piscine sécurisée, de nombreux jouets partout dans la maison et à l'extérieur. A votre arrivée, vous êtes accueillis par Cécile, qui vous a préparé les glaçons et les plaids pour les soirée un peu fraiches. Des petits gestes qui font la différence. La maison est vraiment grande, nous n'avons jamais eu le sentiment d'être les uns sur les autres. Le groupe est unanime nous y retournerons! Merci M. Voinot et Merci Cécile, nous repartons avec de beaux souvenirs et de trés belles photos de la région.
Un joli week-end ensoleillé en famille
Nous avons choisi de passer un week-end prolongé dans cette jolie maison fidèle à la description et aux échanges avec le propriétaire en amont.
Après 6h de route depuis Paris pour les uns et 50 minutes depuis la gare d'Avignon pour les autres, nous sommes accueillis par Cécile qui nous accompagne pour la découverte de la maison.
Nous avons passé un weekend à 10, 6 adultes et 4 enfants de 2 à 10 ans.
La maison est tout à fait adaptée pour des enfants car beaucoup de choses sont accessibles de plain-pied il y a 3 espaces principaux qui permettent à chacun d'avoir son intimité avec chambres à coucher et salles de bain.
Une chose très appréciable dans cette location c'est que réellement tout est inclus par rapport à d'autres que nous avons pu faire. Je pense notamment au linge de lit, aux serviettes de bain et serviettes de piscine cela permet de se concentrer sur l'essentiel.
Concernant les activités nous avons surtout profité du barbecue, de la terrasse, de la piscine evidemment. Quand aux enfants ils se sont beaucoup amusés avec le trampoline et les différents jouets présents dans la maison.
Pour résumer nous avons passé exactement le séjour que nous espérions après avoir repéré cette belle propriété. Nous recommandons et serions prêts à revenir à la Matignonne !
Nous tenons enfin à remercier chaleureusement Cecile pour sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et son accueil.
