Recent Provence reviews
our week at le Canari
"Our week at le Canari has been wonderful. It has everything that you would need, from a shopping basket to red wine vinegar! The place feels like you are in the country and yet you are less than five minutes from the center of town and the patisserie. I would highly recommend a stay here! We will be back in the not so distant future. Thank you Stephen and Tracey for making our stay wonderful!"

"We spent a wonderful holiday in this traditional provencal house. It has lots of luxuries to make your stay special. The location is perfect for relaxing days at home with a pool, vast grounds and a cosy fireplace. At the same time it is ideally situated for touring the region with towns like Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and Cassis as well as the Côte d'Azur at close hand. We really enjoyed our time at the "Mas du Philosophe" and will be back soon."

"WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the gite(1)! It is set amid the olive trees which have lovely foliage. Nicole told us that the olives will be harvested by hand in Nov. And Dec. Despite the presence of oak trees loaded with acorns, no squirrels were present- something which amazed us!
The patio provides a great place to relax and enjoy the warm breeze. We are in the heart of Aix now enjoying the hustle and bustle of the city but at times we miss the serenity we found at the gite in St. Cannat and the friendly owners there.Would definitely recommend!!"

"This is a wonderful property, in Rousset, a charming village 15 kilometers from Aix-en-Provence. A modern home with a traditional feel, the villa is well designed and tastefully furnished by the very friendly English-speaking owners, who live here eight months of the year. Thre three upstairs bedrooms are comfortable, as are the two upstairs bathrooms. The kitchen is large and well equiped, and the living and dining rooms are spacious and comfortable as well. A sunny terrace runs the length of the house, with floor-to-ceiling doors opening onto the terrace from every first-floor room. The yard and the pool get plenty of sun, and privacy is assured by trees and hedging that surround the property. Convenient to Aix (a twenty-minute drive) and small villages in the Mnt. St. Victoire area, the villa served as an ideal base for exploring nearby vineyards and other attractions, or a a spot just to hang out on a nice day. We've rented many houses in Provence over the years, and we liked this one best of all!"
