"Can I return immediately? We loved staying in Colette and Jean-Claude's apartment. The location is tremendous, in the thick of things in Vaison, yet extremely quiet and with a million dollar view over the Roman ruins. Vaison-la-Romaine is a terrific town, with enough shops, restaurants and liveliness to make things vibrant, yet at the same time a small town feel.
The apartment is enormous, with good quality traditional furnishings, extremely clean and well kept up. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, and a lovely terrace for enjoying meals on in good weather.
The owners are like the French grandparents you never knew you had. Their English is very limited, so it helps to speak at least some French. Written communication wasn't an issue at all.
Already planning to return!"

"We had a magical week at this truly special house, and could easily have stayed a month. It was a great launching pad for all of our adventures, as well as a place where we could happily spend a lazy day by the pool. The house was just the right size for our family of five -- including two teens and a tween -- with lovely bedrooms and baths, an open central living area and quiet spots for everyone to retreat to for reading or a nap. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we spent mornings gathered around the large island with our coffee, and pain au chocolat from the local bakery, planning the day's outings. The indoor dining table could easily accommodate us, but our favorite spot for dinner was the stunning covered outdoor dining area. In fact, it was often difficult to choose between beautiful outdoor spots: the pool; the small "breakfast patio;" the covered lounge overlooking the backyard -- all with beautiful views (and on the last day we noticed a bench swing tucked in amongst the olive trees!)
The house is down a country lane, a few minutes away from the closest town, and a short drive to many charming small towns and markets. It was also easy to venture further, to Avignon, Cassis, Le Pont du Gard, Nimes, St. Remy de Provence, Les Baux. The owners have compiled a binder full of suggestions for activities and restaurants, many of which we tried and enjoyed.
The owners made this a seamless rental experience -- from first contact all the way through to the day we left. They have clearly put a lot of care and attention to detail into making the home a welcoming retreat for everyone who stays there. The only thing missing was an extra week or two to spend there! We would love to return one day for a longer stay."

"If you want unique, this is it. If you want extremely welcoming, helpful, and gracious hosts, Eric and Jean are the epitome. If you want memorable, La Tour des Beaumes will certainly be that. The tower has been creatively adapted and is somewhat quirky, in a good way, adding to the pleasure of a stay here. The private pool and gardens, which perfectly compliment the tower, are a pleasure in themselves. The location is an easy walk to Gordes, and day trips out to the surrounding countryside and villages are made easily. The tower and private garden is a separate part of the overall property, on which the hosts reside, and is secured with perimeter walls and entrance gate, affording a comfortable level of security. We took Eric's advice and went to the nearby Abbey of Senanque to attend a 6 pm Vespers service, sung by the monks, in the beautifully austere chapel, and had the feeling of being transported back to the 12 th century. All in all, La Tour des Beaumes, Gordes, and Eric and Jean are about as good as it gets. Book it for sure."

"We stayed at La Maison des Arches in mid-August for a week long Girls Getaway and it was perfect. The house is gorgeous. We found the village of Ansouis to be very charming with just the right amount of conveniences . Our days were spent exploring Provence, having delicious lunches and visiting the local markets. At the end of the day we relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. We sat on the patio and ate our evening meal of local cheeses, meats, olives, bread, pastries from the boulangerie and local wine - heaven! The kitchen is well stocked, the house is beautifully furnished and the beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed meeting Christina, who is the caretaker. The owner, Denise was very helpful and made us feel right at home. It was truly a wonderful vacation."
