Excellent location, lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Location perfect for exploring Provence, Gardanne is a nice small town, convenient for shops and visiting the local market. The house is well presented, comfortable, with friendly neighbours in a quiet residential street.

A lovely & comfortable house that is perfect for exploring Provence

  • 5 of 5

Michele’s house is just lovely! It is really well equipped with pretty much everything you need for a week-long stay. The house is comfortable with plenty of space for larger families and also has a great kitchen. The upstairs bathroom is awesome too! Gardanne is a wonderful location for exploring Provence with enough activities and markets to keep most of the family happy. The house is in a quiet estate and is just a few minutes walk to a supermarket and only a 7 minute walk into town. The neighbours are perfectly friendly too! Michele is lovely and is a wonderful host and we would absolutely recommend her property for a holiday in the south of France!

Gemütliches Haus für den Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben drei Wochen Sommerurlaub hier verbracht und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es gibt viele lohnenswerte Ausflugsziele und auch Strände in gut erreichbarer Entfernung. Hierzu gibt es prima Tipps von der Vermieterin.

Das ganze Haus ist mit persönlicher Note und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet, so dass man sehr gut kochen und backen kann.

Wir haben sehr genossen, dass ein Garten zum Haus gehört. Denn man kann dort und auf der Terrasse herrlich sitzen. Auch wachsen dort frische Kräuter wie Salbei und Minze.

Es gibt alles, was man braucht und wenn mal etwas Unerwartetes passiert (bei uns ein Stromausfall im ganzen Wohnviertel), ist die Vermieterin sofort mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle.

Wir waren mit 4 Erwachsenen und zwei Kindern in Gardanne und fanden das Haus für den Familienurlaub sehr gut geeignet.

Een ruim en gezellig vrijstaand huis in een rustige woonwijk

  • 5 of 5

Wat een gezellig huis! De keuken is duidelijk van iemand die eten serieus neemt. Maar ja, we zijn ook in Frankrijk! Alle kamers zijn ruim en in de tuin heb je zo vier verschillende zittingen geïnstalleerd waar iedereen ongestoord kan lezen.

De gastvrouw heeft een heel nuttige lijst van dingen die je kan ondernemen - ook afgestemd op de leeftijd van de kinderen.

Alles in het huis doet het en is schoon.

De omgeving is rustig en alle voorzieningen zijn op loopafstand.

Het stadje Gardanne is niet hét trekpleister van de Provence, maar we hebben het hier heel erg naar onze zin gehad - waaschijnlijk juist daarom!

Je bent zo in Aix-en-Provence. Marseille en de kust zijn ook dichtbij.

Startpunten van mooie wandelroutes zijn geen 15minuten rijden.

(wél rijden - openbaar vervoer hebben we niet geprobeerd)

Je moet zeker op zondag naar de grote markt in Gardanne. Heel het stadje is er en er heerst een rustige en vriendelijke sfeer. Je kan hier gunstig en lekker je weekboodschappen doen!

Comme a la maison ... mais en mieux

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Michele pour nous avoir confié sa maison.

Parfaite pour une famille, on s'y trouve rapidement comme chez soi. Pour un petit comme le notre, le jardin est un émerveillement de découvertes, la cuisine très bien équipée nous a permis de le régaler, et nous aussi...

Avons hâte de revenir pour poursuivre la découverte de la region !

An Excellent Stay - Perfect house in every way.

  • 5 of 5

A great Gite, with everything you could possibly want. We loved the local swimming pools, bars and markets (the one in Gardane being the largest in the area). Location was ideal for trips to Casis. House is very safe for children, who were safe inside the garden and happy to play in the shade of the trees. Boule / petange on the gravel was hit too. being able to walk to a bakers and bar was ideal - and compared to other gites we have stayed was great as we didn't need to use the car day to day and could walk or bike most places. Gardanne needs a decent restaurant which was the only downside - although meant we had some great family dinners.

Michel's house is wonderful, clean, well decorated with some stunning pictures that she has painted. her hospitality is excellent and her neighbours lovely (our children being of similar age to theirs and ended up making good friends).

All in all a 4.5/5 star location and stay.

Ben and Rachel
