We had a delightful two weeks at La Ferme St Roch at the end of September. The property is lovely, well equipped and well maintained, with spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms, an excellent kitchen and a beautiful swimming pool. It’s totally private, but once you walk through the gate it’s a convenient, very short walk into town to the bakery and markets. Robion is an ideal location, situated at the foot of the Luberon mountain range and very close to Gordes, Ménerbes, Roussillon, Isle sur Sorgue, St. Rémy and other well-known Provence spots. It’s very easily accessible from either Avignon or Aix en Provence. We usually spent a few hours each day exploring the area and having lunch in one of the nearby towns, then made sure to return by mid-afternoon in time to swim and relax by the pool. One day we took a hike into the Luberon just behind Robion’s old town. We had family and friends with us part of the time, and sometimes it was just the two of us. It couldn’t have been any better. To top it all off, Sebastian was a perfect host. We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the entire experience. Merci mille fois!
The house has very accommodating for 4 couple. the Bedrooms are separated enough to provide some privacy and there is a nice large great area for being together. Bathrooms were great with good pressure and plenty of hot water for a large group. Extra refrigerator.The pool area is even nicer than described. Clean and well cared for. Very private, spacious and quiet property. All amenities are close by.
Hosts are on the property and were available whenever we needed some help. Provided tennis raquets, bikes and assisted us with getting a chef (Vitard - he was great).
Why the 4 star instead of 5??? -mostly due to expectations only. The home is advertised as having A/C. It only has two portable units that are insufficient for hot weather. not what we expected. We had extremely hot weather and maybe not an issue frequently but it was for us that week. Also, we found out after booking that there were fees for linens and for towels. Both A/C and linen items may be a French thing......
Would definitely stay there again---pending the time of the year.
