Beautiful place with a delightful owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely five-nights' stay at this excellent house in a peaceful rural setting outside of Trets. We were a group of 9, with ages ranging from 70+ to less than ten weeks, and the property was big enough to give everyone their own space. The pool was fabulous (though beware of the wasps nesting in the wooden decking), complete with wide range of inflatables for the children to play on, and the garden was very attractive with plenty of grass for various games to take place. The interior of the house was very well equipped and very clean. Michel the owner is utterly charming and was extremely helpful and easy to deal with throughout the process, from our initial expression of interest to refunding the deposit. Thoroughly recommended!

This villa and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed it immensely.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect for a large group of guests. My family, consisting of 8 people, never felt that we lacked our own personal space. The home offers several very charming locations to gather to enjoy the outdoors, and the dinner tables (indoors and outside) accommodate a large group easily. We ate breakfast together, traveled during the day, and usually returned in the evening to cook together, drink wine from one of the local vineyards, and enjoy a nice meal. The villa is an easy drive to many wonderful villages and towns. There are a few very nice restaurants within minutes of the home, including a very nice Japanese restaurant and a lovely place within a vineyard. We traveled as far as Monaco and Saint Tropez, and also enjoyed Gordes, l'isle sur la sourge (a must-see market),Cassis, and Aix-en-Provence. The home has five very nice bedrooms and about six bathrooms, and the swimming pool is wonderful. I highly recommend this property for your next vacation. We will return again some time soon.

Traumhaus in der Provence

  • 5 of 5

Wir (6 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) sind gerade frisch aus dem Provence-Urlaub zurückgekehrt und vermissen das Haus von Michel bereits jetzt. Das Frühstück auf draußen auf der Terrasse, das Abendbrot vom Grill, die Erfrischung im riesigen Pool, die Privatsphäre der großzügigen Anlage, die unglaubliche Gastfreundschaft von Michel Alexandre (ihr braucht Tipps für die Umgebung? Kein Problem. Ihr wollt Euch einen Abend im Haus bekochen lassen? Michel kennt einen ausgezeichneten Koch. Ihr braucht noch irgendetwas extra? Fragt ihn einfach, er hilft rasch und unkompliziert) & die ausgezeichnete Lage der Immobilie zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten (und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten) der Provence machen das Haus und seinen Besitzer zu einer absoluten Empfehlung für den Ferienhausurlaub. Sicher, der Preis für das Haus ist nicht niedrig, aber dafür bleiben keine Wünsche offen.

Best provence discovery

  • 5 of 5

As a French living and working in Australia, I wanted to introduce France to 2 couples of Australian friends and their children. So I chose one of the most beautiful regions and city of France: Aix en Provence and probably one of the best spot.

We rented this property for a week.

I wanted to make this comment as my Australian friends had the best experience to discover France like that and we had a wonderful holiday in this property.

The house is large, original, exquisite, refined and comfortable with spacious rooms, all rooms open on the beautiful gardens.

The location is so perfect, with a beautiful surrounding countryside, the sea, Aix en Provence and the rear provence (Gordes, ...) a few miles away.

Having a cafe in Sydney, called "Douce France", I prepared a lot of French meals. The kitchen was so nice with so many equipments that It could only be a success.

The choice between the different terraces allowed us to live together without being embarrassed by promiscuity for a moment of tranquility.

It's a place that I recommend without any hesitation, the owner and the maintenance man who takes care of the house (swimming pool, hammam, garden, ...) did everything that we were expected for and were very friendly. They just wanted us to get the best experience without being to intrusive.

Gorgeous!

Mes meilleurs souvenirs vacances

  • 5 of 5

Mes meilleurs souvenirs vacances. Les paysages de Paul Cezanne, la beaute et le calme de la Provence avec la Sainte-Victoire accessible a pieds, la merveilleuse ville d Aix en Provence, la ville de Marseille ou les calanques de Cassis accesibles en 10 min de voitures. Tout cela dans une bastide juste exceptionnelle, grande, spacieuse, decoree avec gout. Les balades et les dejeuners dans le jardin ou au bords de la piscine. Quels souvenirs, merci.
