  • A Good Base for Exploring

    "We stayed at Le Domaine de Laforest for a week in late September 2014 in one of the remodeled farm buildings. The building is split into four or five self contained gites. The ground floor contains an open area with kitchenette, living and dining areas and the upstairs consists of two bedrooms , a separate WC, and a shower / laundry room. There is also a terrace overlooking the gardens. The gite is spacious and well furnished with modern appliances including satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The accommodation is clean and well looked after and the proprietors are helpful and provide local knowledge and tourist information. The location is about one mile from the village of Fontvieille which is walkable by road or cross country. The village has all the facilities needed for self catering - grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants etc and a tourist office. This is a good base for exploring the surrounding towns and countryside by car. It is easy to get to Pont-du-Gard, Avignon, Arles, Nimes, Saint Maries-de-la-Mer, St Remy-de-Provence, Les Baux etc. The local area includes the Roman Aqueduct and the Windmills made popular by Alphonse Daudet. Visitors should note the following additional costs - sheets and towels, cleaning, tourist tax and a charge for electricity. This added about 25% to our quoted cost. For non-local visitors - the gite was missing many of the basic items that we have found in similar accommodation elsewhere. There was no salt and pepper, paper towels, garbage bags, laundry soap, coffee filters resulting in special trips to the store. We have suggested that the proprietor offer a "basics bag" for a few Euros to those travelling from overseas. In summary, this is excellent accommodation in an interesting area and to be recommended."

  • "Merveilleux" in every way!

    "We spent a week at this property, and it was like something out of a fantasy. The house is absolutely stunning and exactly what we hoped a Provence farmhouse would be. The photos can't do it justice; you have to see it to believe it. The interior is first class, very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is incredible and very well equipped; if you like to cook, you will love this kitchen. The three main bedrooms are spacious and luxurious (we didn't use the fourth, smaller bedroom). The exterior of the house is beautiful, too: a charming stone building surrounded by professionally landscaped gardens, a pool, and views of the village of Murs and the valley below. Like something out of Provence Homes & Gardens magazine (if there is such a publication)! Finally, we would be remiss is we didn't mention the lavender field directly behind the house. It was in full bloom during our visit and truly spectacular. "Merveilleux" in every way."

    "- Propriétaires très accueillants, discrets, pleins de petites attentions et de bons conseils pour les visites à réaliser dans les alentours. - Gîte, conforme à l'annonce (sans mauvaises surprises !), bien équipé en nécessaire (linge de maison, petits équipements électro-ménagers), bien entretenu. - Jardin composé de divers espaces de "jeux de plein air" (pétanque, piscine, spa, ping-pong, balançoires, coins repos...) très agréable - Endroit charmant au centre de nombreuses activités (proximité des sites touristiques) - calme - reposant - Gîte que nous recommandons"
