The farmhouse was perfect for our vacation spent exploring Provence. We used it as home base, eating breakfast and then heading out to visit different villages every day. The kitchen is not large, but it is new and completely functional. Since there were 3 of us it was nice having 3 bedrooms (one has a curtain for a door, which was fine). The bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, were modern and large, and even included towel warmers and a hair dryer. We enjoyed cocktails on the side yard patio one night, which was lovely (rained or we were too tired other nights).
Our only problem was finding the home when we first arrived, it isn't where google maps says it should be. We also had a problem working the tv, but Nathalie was very responsive to both issues and everything was fine.
We can totally recommended this home and we hope to be back next summer!
We absolutely loved this property and the location. We were a large group (10 adults and 2 small grandchildren) and we stayed for 5 nights. The house is on a nice sized piece of property that is next to the small village of Saumane-de-Vaucluse and it feels very remote. It feels remote but you have quick access via car to local markets and villages. We went to the market everyday for our daily "supplies". The indoor accommodations were perfect for us and we never felt like we needed more space. You could easily find a place to "get away". The house came with everything we needed for cooking, grilling, swimming, playing, and cleaning. The outdoor areas of the property were fantastic and really made the stay special! The pool is awesome and secluded. Very clean. They have an outdoor "Patong" Pit similar to Bocci. There is an outdoor ping pong table in the shade above the pool with plenty of recliners to watch or nap. There is also plenty of outdoor areas to just sit, relax, and drink your coffee, wine, or favorite beverage and just simply relax!! Lastly, there is plenty of space to eat with a large group, both indoors and outdoors. The village of Saumane-de-Vaucluse is very small and really only has one restaurant but it is a very good one. A must place to dine one evening...great food and even better views. I recommend you get a reservations way ahead as it is a small quant place and it fills up quickly. The larger village (L'isle-sur-la-Sorge) that we went to every morning for supplies was a 10 minute car ride. Awesome village with plenty of fresh markets, patisseries, cafe's and restaurants. Parking can be tough at times but a great village that has everything you need. You are a short distance to Gordes, Rossillion, Murs, and Avignon.Also, you are only approximately 60-90 minutes from beaches of the Mediterranean.
Isabelle and Fabrice were great hosts and explained everything thoroughly so we weren't lost or confused. I would highly recommend this property for anyone that wants to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the Provence but also wants to quickly explore other areas and villages of the Provence.
