Recent Provence reviews

  • Absolutely charming apartment

    "I absolutely loved Sophie's apartment. I wish I could have stayed longer. It is so charming and comfortable. Paradou is a great location to stay for exploring the region. It is very close to some of the more touristy villages & towns so you can spend the day "out and about" and return to this lovely, quiet sanctuary for a good nights sleep. There is also a parking lot right across the street with plenty of space and it is free. This was my first trip to the south of France & I enjoyed every minute of it. Sophie is a gracious host and I enjoyed meeting her. I hope to return to her lovely apartment and bring my husband with me next time. He'd love it too. I highly recommend staying in Paradou for a true southern France village experience. It's beautiful and the people are friendly. The Carrieres de Lumieres in Les Baux de Provence is a "must see". Merci Sophie for your kindness and hospitality."

  • A wonderful place to stay

    "We had a wonderful time at La Calisanne. Very pleasant owners to deal with and where any questions you may have from the time of booking to and during your stay are taken care of promptly. They have thought of literally everything and there was not one thing we would have missed or wished to be different. A special note also to the absolutely fully equipped kitchen, something we have never experienced throughout our many rentals and which is appreciable for someone preferring to cook a good lunch or diner. We found everything to be perfect for the house, ammenities and surroundings! The house is located in a wonderful area, very quiet though close to the village. You won't miss any comfort here as everything has been arranged and thought of with great care. Well designed, bright and sunny interior with a lovely garden (plenty of lights at night if you wish so) and a superb pool which has an absolutely fantastic view. A great place to wind down, relax and enjoy the tranquility. If you like to visit like we do, you have plenty of charming villages nearby within a short driving distance, the sea being less than an hour away and on your visits, you can enjoy one of the restaurants on your way or take a break and visit one of the many wineyards for wine tasting and to fill up your wine cellar again. We highly recommend the house and place and will certainly retain it in our favorites for futur "Provence Verte" visits."

  • Delightful country retreat, beautiful accommodation, pool, garden, great host

    "We (husband, son, daughter-in-law) loved the Garden House. The pictures don't do it justice. The house feels new and all the rooms felt spacious with high ceilings. The shower was fabulous, the beds and linens superb, and it was deeply quiet at night. I loved the tapestry in the living room and the furnishings are to a high standard. The owner, James, clearly cares about aesthetics. James left us a very welcome basket of delicacies and treats upon arrival. As we had gotten turned around on the way there and had not had time to stop for food, this was a god-send. We loved taking advantage of the expansive outdoor olive garden, a couple little mini-specialty garden nooks, the relaxing hammocks, and the beautiful pool area. With four of us, we could each spread out and have our own space, whether inside or outside. My husband and i enjoyed a walk into St. Remy one day (~1 hour 10 minutes) along a Roman Canal. It was quiet, pretty and peaceful. Ask James how to get there. We also cooked dinner most nights and enjoyed eating at the table in front of the house. James showed us how to get to a great large grocery store that had everything we wanted. This way we could stay home and relax after busy days visiting Arles, Pont du Gard and Avignon. James was a delight and made the whole experience more personal. While he had great suggestions about the local area, what we enjoyed most was a happy hour with him where we discussed art and life in Southern France among other topics. James has lived all over the world and chooses to live at this property which is a great endorsement alone. All four of us strongly endorse the Garden House for a special stay in the St. Remy area."

  • French teacher

    "I first found Provence Paradis on VRBO for an adult group trip in 2010. For this first trip, our group of 10 stayed in Le Moulin, La Tour & a small hideaway room. Each member of our group fell totally in love with Provence Paradis. Everything was so incredible, that my husband & I returned with one of the couples in 2012, staying in Le Moulin. Again, this hamlet was truly a "Paradise." But our most amazing trip was this June, 2014. We stayed in La Tuilerie with our two sons & their wives for two weeks. Because this was our third time to stay here, I felt like William & his amazing staff were like family. From the delicious meal awaiting us, to all the "extras" William provided, we never wanted to leave. The gardens, pool & spa are so enticing that you must include time in your stay to just relax & breathe in the smells of Provence. We took many day trips recommended by William - Isle sur la Sorgue, La Vaucluse, Arles, Avignon, Chateau Neuf du Pape & so many more. William is an expert on all these sites, & we just had to mention that "William sent us" & everyone treated us like royalty. William IS Provence Paradis. His heart knows no bounds in meeting each guest's requests. He is so intuitive of his guests, that he anticipates their desires before they can. His dedication to adhering to the history & culture of this region is nothing short of a true "labor of love." Each of the houses are exemplary of French provincial architecture & decor. While staying in these houses, we get to "live" history. One of our most enjoyable activities was a personal chef day arranged by William. After discussing what we wanted to have for lunch, Maria (the chef) took us to the market in St. Remy where we bought all the fresh ingredients necessary. We then returned to La Tuilerie where we prepared our own lunch under the tutelage of this marvelous chef. Our gourmet lunch was perfect! William & a neighbor in the hamlet joined us for an unforgettable experience. We will continue to vacation in "Paradise" with William for many years to come."
