"We were lucky enough to spend 6 days at Chez Ellen recently. I am not sure the experience could have been better. The house is amazing, and the views from it unbelievable. The house comes very well equipped, from the kitchen to the living room and bedrooms, but we keep going back to the terrace, and those views. Picking up breakfast in the village bakery and going back and eating at the terrace each morning was amazing. Great views, comfortable breezes, and if we had decided to cook, we could have had even more fun.
Ansouis is a very nice small village to stay in and visit, and I recommend taking the tour of the Chateau. Even with no real French in our arsenal, it was very interesting. Everyone was kind and friendly, and helped make the experience wonderful. Within 15-60 minutes from it, you have many wonderful places to visit, such as Gordes, Lourmarin, Cucuron (last two have great market days), Cassis, Aix, the Aix TGV station, Pont Du Gard, and much more. Ansouis was lovely to stay in, as well as a base for day trips. We went as far as Monaco and San Remo Italy, and that worked well also for that.
All in all, it was an amazing experience, and we are VERY looking forward to going back one day."
