"If you are looking for the ultimate experience in France, Oaks and Olives is the place. The house is perfect: absolutely charming while totally modern and functional. The kitchen is large and well equipped (you can tell the hosts are serious about their food!), the living/dining space is large and comfortable, and with two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and two with a shared bathroom, there is plenty of room. One patio gets lovely morning sun and the other, overlooking the beautiful garden, pool, olive and fruit trees, is perfect for afternoon and evenings. The covered outdoor eating area is beautiful any time of the day. The location is a great balance of quiet countryside (house location) within easy distance of so many charming towns, all with great food and interesting markets. Hiking, biking, walking or touring around are all fun. Access is easy, whether within France or from elsewhere. The TGV (fast train) from Paris comes to Avignon (about 30 mins away) and the international airport at Marseille is about 45 mins by car.
Over and above all of the practical info, the hosts' attention to detail - from time of first contact to property maintenance - is significantly different from any other rental experience. Personal, prompt attention is given to the rental request, additional information happily provided, tons of useful, local information is available in the house upon arrival and the house and grounds are beautifully maintained.
This visit was my second to Oaks and Olives. I was fortunate to stay in 2012 and am happy to report that the adage "you cannot go back again" does not apply. It was even better on a return trip, which I simply did not think possible, so I am already thinking about booking again - soon!
Cannot recommend more highly."

"This was our second stay, and was as good, if not better than our previous rental. Susan was once again professional and exceedingly friendly. The house was spotless. The weather was flawless. The location is unbeatable. What else could one want?"
