  • 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."

  • Authentic French

    "A fantastic house to stay in, heaps of room, private terrace and garden and in a truly French town with no other tourists! Heaven. So much to see locally but best part was getting home and drinking rosé watching the sun go down. A must have stay or a truly authentic french experience. Yes yes."

  • A Place to Fall in Love With...

    "We stayed in this lovely cabanon in Aug 2013, but we forgot to write a review earlier. However, when I came across the advertisement again, wonderful memories came into my mind. It is indeed a wonderful little place, very nicely done up and cosy. Go there during the lavender season - the smell of lavender surrounds you when you have breakfast or dinner at the little terrace outside. A wonderful place to fall in love with; spend time with a loved on there. We would love to go back again."

  • Beautiful base for a summer holiday

    "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."
