nice but not private as we thought
The property is very nice with charm and a good size.
Upstairs we was surprised bathroom is accessed from both bedrooms which at times was difficult to juggle. Fine if you have younger children but not ideal if you are all adults.
The outside area, although nice, was not private and for us this was a problem.
we felt that we were being watched a simple fence would have been good so at least we felt more private.
so I would suggest anyone wanting privacy on their holiday, as we did, this is not the house for you.
We had a two week stay at the house, we did not receive clean sheets or towels in that time, only upon arrival.
I would suggest at the very least a weekly change would be acceptable.
We had to wash the towels ourselves.
The weather was extremely hot, I would suggest a fan to be provided or air conditioning be installed as heat inside the house was unbearable.
We was told the BQQ was a part of their private area, so the BQQ that is included in the description is not provided.
This was hard then to cook inside the house as it was simply too hot.
Christian was a very friendly man and gave us lots of helpful recommendations for the local shops.
In terms of value for money, having always hired private villa or house this was not value for money because of the lack of privacy.
The comments that our visitors leave on the website are of primary importance to us. Since 2007, these opinions and remarks allow us to constantly improve our service to ensure each visit the best welcome and provide an unforgettable experience. They have always been very enthusiastic and often come as a real reward for the passionate people we are! Yours left us with a strange feeling, so simple was it to meet your expectations. We attach great importance to our discretion and tranquility of our visitors. It is clearly stated in the announcement that we live on the spot, we consider that it is one of the added values of our renting that to propose an experience of authentic life, with hosts nearby and always available to facilitate you the stay , suggest excursions, and also meet your practical needs.
This has never caused the slightest problem - quite the contrary! - especially as you enjoy a private entrance, exclusive access to the pool, without any view from our part of the house! Building a wall or fence would be contrary to the state of mind we want to cultivate. Regarding your daily life, our equipment is very complete and we offer a housekeeper for long stays (more than 8 days), without any additional costs including changes of sheets and towels. Why not to have asked us for it? For shorter stays, just ask, as is the case, for any other need (fan, BBQ ...). Maybe we have not expressed it clearly enough? We will make sure to repeat it to our future visitors. Christian and I remain discreet but during your stay, we made sure several times from you that everything was OK and you have always confirmed it.
More annoying for us is the state of lingerie after your departure (stained hair dye?) that forced us to throw everything: sheets, duvet cover, pillowcases and towels. It would have been ok to let us know because we returned your deposit with full confidence before your departure. In the end, Mas de la Vanade remains a unique experience based on hospitality, respect and conviviality. It is important to read the announcement before making your choice.
Relaxing, beautiful, excellent location in Provence, and perfect for our family
We had a lovely stay with Marie Claire and Christian. From the moment we arrived, greeted with much appreciated refreshments, to our departure,we were treated with such kind hospitality. The property is exquisite, and Barbentane is so nice. Many detailed, beautiful decor, and nothing missing appt all. Very quaint and easy to navigate from throughout Provence. We hope to return!
Loved every minute
We had a wonderful stay..Marie-Claire and Christian were so friendly and the house was a delight. The decor was typically French Farmhouse which was fabulous..and it's proxim8ty to Avignon and other Provencal villages was a bonus ...the swimming pool unfortunately did not get the use it deserved due to our sightseeing and the Mistral blowing. I would rate our stay as a 10 out of 10. The only downside was that I would have liked a stand up shower. Many thanks Marie Claire and Christian. We will certainly be recommending you to friends
Beautiful house but look elsewhere if have small children
The house, pool and entire grounds are very beautiful and I would say it is a great choice for couples or people with older children. We had our 18 month old with us and I would say if you have an active toddler (less than 2 years) I would not recommend. Our little boy threw small stones in the pool a few times (despite us trying to stop him in time), and the one time we didn't get to them before the owner saw, she was furious which left our whole party feeling very harassed and uncomfortable for the remainder of our stay. I want to add we retrieved all of them with the pool scoop, this was the one time we didn't get to them before the owner saw. So as I say, I cannot fault the property itself, the owners were very welcoming with drinks when we first arrived which was lovely, and I would definitely recommend to people without young children as that is the only area of contention which caused issues for us. For anyone with a toddler I would consider elsewhere.
Charme d'une demeure de caractère et un magnifique extérieur fleuri
À quelques kilomètres d'Avignon, Havre de paix et de tranquillité, grâce de charmants propriétaires, tout de discrétion.Tant l'intérieur que l'extérieur, avec en prime une très sympathique piscine, rendent le séjour bien agréable. Il faut aussi relever les commerçants locaux, avec des produits régionaux et une grande amabilité.
Superbe mas provençal parfait
Nous avons passé de superbes vacances dans une maison très bien décorée avec beaucoup de goût style revue de décoration.
Les propriétaires sont très charmants et très discrets , ils partagent la propriété mais on ne les voit jamais , on se sent chez soi .
Le jardin et l'espace piscine sont superbes .
Ca sent vraiment la Provence comme on l'imagine.
L'emplacement est parfait pour rayonner dans la région avec très peux de déplacement .
