Lovely escape in Provence
Cecile was a delightful host and made our stay very special. The communication was very smooth and the property was as described. Unfortunately we were there during a terrible heat wave, but were so pleased to find the thick stone walls kept the home quite cool. In addition, there are three air conditioners in the living areas that work very efficiently. The patio area was lovely for having dinner and a glass of wine at night, our kids enjoyed the yard. Beautiful home close to many great little towns (Avignon, St. Remy, Arles, etc). Thanks, Cecile!
Perfect slice of Provence
This is quintessential Provence: gorgeous old stone walls (but modern and comfortable inside), and surrounded by open fields. The location is great; it's quiet and rural, but only a few minutes drive to town with supermarkets and restaurants, and central to Arles, Avignon, Camargue, etc. Could not have asked for a better home base.
A piece of Provence of your own
Location: perfect for day trippers to various attractions of the region - Avignon, Arles, Orange, the villages of Luberon, Cote du Rhone wineries, even Aix. Drivings to these places are picturesque, full of orchards and vineyards and other agricultural establishments. Google map works very well mostly.
Place: the B&B is exactly as I expected from looking at the photos, and then there is the pleasant surprise of the vineyard and historical buildings around it. I watch the sunrise every morning from the kitchen window, and the moonlit fields from my bedroom window. The place is fully equipped from kitchen to laundry, and we got free bottle of wine and juice upon arrival. Note the bedrooms are on the second floor while the toilet on the first, with one flight of stairs separating them.
Host: couldn't say enough how gracious Cecile is, and the helpful recommendations she gave. She lives next door so is always available when needed. she is the reason this place gets 5-star from us.
BTW, for those of you speaks Chinese, she's fluent in that as well! The place is full of wonderful art works by her husband, really worth checking out.
A slice of heaven in Provence!
Everything about our stay on Cecile's family's vineyard was magical. Cecile is a generous and gracious host who went out of her way to welcome us (for example, greeting us late at night after travel delays caused a midnight arrival and driving us back to the train station the next morning to retrieve a rental car).
The vineyard is glorious and the cottage is wonderfully appointed -- we were so thrilled with the setting and the accommodations that we asked Cecile if we could stay on for two more days. The grapes were being harvested and it was a joy to witness the process.
The location is perfect and centrally located for so much of what we planned to do. We could not have been happier. Merci, Cecile!
Perfect setting and exactly as listed
Clean, bright and has everything you need to be comfortable. Proctsemidy to town and attractions is prefect. Absolutely 10/10.
Thank you very much Jackie! Your stay was short but it was very great to meet you! Hope to welcome you again.
Charming farmhouse in beautiful Provence
We stayed a whole week in this charming farmhouse, once owned by a king in the 16th century and used as his hunting lodge. The farm is 170+ acres, and is still producing grapes, apricots and various grains. Our gracious hostess, Cecile, was kind enough to give us a bottle of the delicious rose wine they produce there. Although the accommodations are simple, there is air conditioning, the beds are comfortable, and the outdoor patio (shaded in the afternoon) is a delightful place to enjoy a glass of wine. Cecile could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The nearest town is Tarascon, and there's not much going on there, but it's an easy drive to Arles (25 minutes) for the incredible Saturday market, or Avignon (20 minutes in the other direction) for the tourist sites and dining opportunities. We would highly recommend this property for those who would just like to relax and enjoy the beauty of Provence.
Thanks a lot for your kind review! I really hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again!
