VILLAGE HOUSE LOCATION
VILLAGE HOUSE LOCATION
We re-visited the Bedoin Sablet area after 20 years and structured our stay around dining at wonderful destinations for lunch and then preparing dinners in from our gatherings at the open markets in various villages as well as that gathered from the local butchers and bakers. This home lends itself perfectly for traveling in this way. It provides for the morning coffee ritual in-house as well as dinner prepared with dining al fresco either on the living room level terrace by the bay tree or the roof top level.Having lived in two other village houses during our 2012 France adventures and experiencing the somewhat difficult task of driving a car into a village or close to a front door, we were delighted by the location of this property which is convenient to parking just off the main shopping street with easy passage to the front door. There is that same convenience to Bedoin's restaurants and shops located just one block away.Bedoin's open market sets up almost at your front door (just around the corner) All in all a charming destination.

A lovely house in an authentic French village

Our experience in Bedoin was enhanced by staying in this lovely house conveniently located in the center of the village. Cafés, restaurants, boulangeries, a grocery store, etc. etc. everything is within a 5 minute walk. Bonus: on Monday mornings the whole village is transformed by the weekly provencal market. A delight for the eyes and palate, and just minutes away from your door!!! The house is equipped with everything! (for example, you will find in the kichenall you need to prepare a refined meal or to picnic with food gathered along during the day), The rooms are cozy with a beautiful and large master bedroom and an impressive rooftop terrasse with a picture perfect view of the Mont Ventoux. The dining/living room area is cozy and very well equipped for entertainment (TV, wifi, etc.), the owner even provides extra transformers and adapters for your electronic geer! The property is clear, quiet (after just one day you completely forget about the ringing of the bells every hour). The owner has created a beautiful and warm atmosphere that gives you the impression that this your own home, a nice feeling when returning from a day-long excursion exploring the nearby area. There is also a contact person in Bedoin, in case you need quick help with something.

We spent a wonderful week here in October. What a beautiful time to be in Bedoin and the entire Provence area. Trees were in full fall colors, sunny skies and wonderful people. This is the perfect apartment for a home base to see the area and visit the wineries. Marianne met us on arrival, helped us settle in and even left a wonderful bottle of rose' for our enjoyment. We did most of our own cooking, this is like an American kitchen with full fridge, great stove and all the dishes and cooking materials you need. Loved the Saturday market. Hope we can return one day!

Owner response: Gene and Anne, So happy you had a wonderful time at our home. Happy travels and hope you return to France soon!
An amazing apartment in the perfect Provencal village. My friend and I stayed here for a week in May 2011 as we explored the area. Bedoin has everything you need to include a couple of great market-based restaurants and two excellent artisan bakeries. Breakfast of fresh bread and breakfast pastries on the deck was a great way to start the day. Likewise, it was nice to get back to Bedoin each evening and relax on the deck with a glass of wine while enjoying the views. The apartment is quite comfortable: kitchen has everything you really need, bedroom is large and quiet, the deck and scenery are perfection, and all the creature comforts are there (washer/dryer, wireless internet, phone, nice den/living area). The owner was quite helpful in planning for our trip and the local property manager, Marianne, met us upon arrival and helped us get settled in (wine and fresh cherries were a nice welcoming touch). We would love to stay here again on our next trip to the area.

This home right in the heart of the charming village of Bedoin could not have been more comfortable. Our trip was primarily dedicated to cycling and the area roads did not disappoint, but the ability to return 'home' to this quiet, airy place for afternoon respite was fantastic. Town, with great boulangeries, fresh produce...is less than a block away. We found the rooftop dining so wonderful, that aside from the first night, we failed to visit the village restaurants! Yes, i am in withdrawal back here in Pittsburgh, where the smell of baking pain chocolate does not waft through my window at the wee hours of the morning!

We stayed for 2 weeks in this lovely appartment in Bedoin in June 2009. The appartment was in a fantastic situation, right in the heart of Bedoin just below the church. It is a beautifully appointed appartment with all that one could wish for. We were very happy and would certainly stay again Highly recommend a stay here. A lovely area at the foot of Mt Ventoux, right in the middle of a wonderful wine district with many things to see within an easy drive. And it has a garage!!

We returned home to Australia from our extended stay in France last weekend. Our stay for two weeks in La Maison Rose in Bedoin was one of the highlights of our trip. Although we have spent a lot of time in France in the past we have never spent much time in Provence. Staying in your beautiful home gave us the opportunity to explore the region and have a taste of life in the village of Bedoin. Marianne made us feel very welcome with a beautiful vase of lilacs, bottle of wine and baguette waiting for us on our arrival. After a day of walking and exploring we really looked forward to returning to such a well appointed home to enjoy the wine and foods we had purchased in one of the local markets. Having the choice of the terrace or rooftop with its superb views of the village and Mount Ventoux was an added bonus. You really do have a very special home in a special part of France and thank you for letting us share this with you.

This is a very nice home in Provence. The view of Ventoux and Bedoin from the roof is beautiful. The house is located only a few steps from the center of town. It is very peaceful. The kitchen is fully equipped. The roof has a BBQ and is a great place to enjoy the Provence experience. There's a garage to park your car. And if you are a cyclist, it is the perfect location for the 3 ascents of Ventoux.

We have been coming to Provence for many years and stayed in Bedoin for quite a few of them, but this has undoubtedly been one of the most enjoyable and comfortable visits we have had. La Maison Rose is beautifully presented and the owners have obviously put great care into making it as inviting as possible. Nothing has been forgotten, it felt like a true home from home. It was a privilege to stay in such a lovely environment right amongst the locals of Bedoin themselves and the view from the roof terrace captures the very essence of Provence. A perfect holiday.

Fantastique!! Such a lovely, comfortable, homey, welcoming little house in Bedoin. All the little touches, being met by Loic on our arrival, having fresh bread, cheese and wine (all the staples) waiting for us at the end of a long journey and a bunch of fresh flowers for madame, made our stay in La Maison Rose even more memorable. The house itself is wonderful with it's balcony and roof top terrace that were very welcome for a bottle of local wine on many a (unseasonably I believe) balmy April evening. The village is lovely and has all anyone could need for a relaxing holiday, but is also comfortably within driving distance of many sights of interest. We travelled for eight weeks through France and Italy, staying in apartments and cottages and we can definitely say that the Little House in France is the best equipped of any we stayed in. We would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to spend some time in Provence. Thank you!! Ron & Kym Melbourne, Australia

I don't know where to begin - rave about how perfect the apartment was or about the location. Bedoin is a perfect base from which to see Provence. It is right in the middle of all of the market towns - and I thought the one in Bedoin was the best of them all. The apartment is about 50 steps from the shops and restaurants and it is a wonderful place to be in and of itself. It is on a quiet street one block off the main square. You could shop at the market and then spend a lovely evening fixing dinner and enjoying it in the kitchen/dining area or on the rooftop patio. The next time I get the chance to visit Provence I hope the apartment is available because I doubt I could find as good an option.

We have been renting La Maison Rose for several years now with great success and a terrific response from all who have stayed there. This online guestbook is new for 2007 and we hope that those who leave comments here will be just as enthusiastic.
