About Mr or Mrs Aramo

French expatriate family living in Singapour,

Mr or Mrs Aramo purchased this villa in 2011

Why Mr or Mrs Aramo chose Apt

We bought this house to spend some time off. Unfortunately, our moving to Indonesia does not allow us to come as often as we would like.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with the garden when we first visited the property. It is a real haven just a few minutes away from the village.

The house was elegantly renovated and so we hope you will enjoy your stay here.

High hopes but there were disappointments

  • 3 of 5

We just stayed in the home for 8 days in early July. My husband and I researched the area around this home extensively. We have used VRBO successfully in the past. We chose this home for its spaciousness and location. The home itself worked well. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary with our two daughters, son in law, and our 16 month old granddaughter. So the layout of the property was nice. My granddaughter loved her room. The deck was spacious but we were concerned with the drop off around the deck. No railings. Also the stairs in the home had no railing which bothered us. As foodies, we were excited to cook in the nice kitchen. However it was difficult. No staples were provided. For example, I love my morning coffee. There were no measuring spoons. My husband tried to cut a chicken, but only one very dull knife. I wanted to keep the house like my home. But it was hard....we had to buy dish detergent, paper towels, and soap for the dishwasher. The description leads one to believe you can walk to the village. You sort of can, but it's hilly and a long walk. It is not a pleasant walk to a cute village. Very misleading. Also, to drive to any of the other villages, wineries, etc. it takes about one hour. Difficult drives which hampered our fun. We did enjoy the pool ( but please note there was no umbrella as pictured). I wanted to discuss the following concern with the owner, but he did not seem interested. It is clear the owners put love, money , and lots of time designing their landscaping. Unfortunately their property manager had back surgery. And more unfortunately, their landscaping is in very bad condition. It is really a shame.

I hope the owners will be visiting their home soon to see. May it work out for future visitors.

This is an absolutely beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, it was a feast for the eyes. The sofas, chairs, and beds were all comfortable and the bed linens luxurious. The kitchen was very large and perfectly appointed, It was a joy to cook a meal. The appliances, both large and small, were great. I particularly loved the baby blue Smeg toaster, the KitchenAid mixer, and the six burner gas stove. There are hundreds of books, most of them hard cover books on art, design, and architecture. The grounds were well-designed, although a little raggedy, because the property manager had recently had back surgery and couldn’t take care of it, nevertheless, there were herbs and flowers everywhere. There is a large, luxurious deck with the large sofa several chairs and a great big sofa table. There were three ceiling fans. Truly, no detail has gone wanting. The only thing which would have made it 100% perfect would have been if kitchen staples such as salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, paper towels, and dish soap had been available for us. A welcoming bottle of local wine or two wuould have also been great. Oh, and the swimming pool – it was a little too chilly to use it, but the kids got in anyway and had a great time. This was a wonderful experience.

Stylish, large rooms, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated villa set in a large garden with a big swimming pool and lots of shade. A plus is that it's just a 15 minute downhill walk to the shops and restaurants in the charming town of Apt (ideally get someone to bring you back up the hill!).

The layout of the house is very convenient with 2 ground floor bedrooms (both with en-suite bathrooms but oddly no loo in one). The 2 large decks are ideal for eating outdoors with one shaded by a beautiful oak and the barbecue close by.

An ideal place to relax with the convenience of Apt within walking distance (and a massive E Leclerc a few minutes' drive).

Really lovely villa which appears much larger in real life than the photos. Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We had small children of various ages and a pool gaurd was deployed around the pool when we arrived, which was perfect for peace of mind. The pool itself was lovely and cool and not deep, so again perfect for the kids. My only suggestion would be a pool cover to prevent dirt entering at night and to keep it warm for swimming on cooler days. A net was also provided to fish out leaves etc.

It's very roomy villa and also has excellent a/c and facilities, although the gas barbecue is out of order.

The bedrooms are all large although the ground floor master bedroom has no shutters and smelled a little of mothballs when we arrived. There is not much hanging space for clothes in the house as the owners have them all locked up and must visit often themselves. There was one hanging cupboard in the main hall and hanging storage is limited to the few coat hangers found within.

It's very peaceful place and easy to access many wonderful spots or amenities.

It's also beautifully decorated in a tasteful mix of new and old with an enormous and gorgeous deck out the front of the house.

We were 3 separate groups but found it easy to find privacy or alternatively join together in a group.

Highly recommended.
