A lovely comfortable home from home
"Villa Briancon was everything its description promised - and more. It has the most magnificent view across to the old town and is extremely well situated, especially if you have a car (or two, as we had).
The owners, Gilles and Isabelle, who live in the apartment below, were extremely welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and we quickly felt very much at home.
The property, which was spotlessly clean when we arrived, is spacious and well laid out and was always warm with plenty of hot water - particularly appreciated after a day's skiing! Everyone in our party (five adults, three teenage boys) agreed the beds were comfortable and plenty of bedding and linen was provided. The kitchen is well equipped, with every appliance and utensil you could need and a large supermarket and shopping centre is just 5 minutes walk down the hill for provisions.
We booked our ski passes and hired equipment from the Briancon ski centre which is just minutes away by car but as it was the New Year week we were advised that it would be less busy to ski from Chantemerle, 3-4 kilometres up the road, and this area was our focus for the week. Providing you arrive reasonably early in the morning you can park close to the gondola station (5 euros a day) or there is a larger parking area (free) on the outskirts, a 5-10 minute walk from the gondola station, depending on how much kit you are carrying! The speedy gondola takes you up to the slopes and there's a good range of runs to choose from as well as plenty of cafes and this ski area kept our party (a mix of beginners to advanced intermediates) happy for the week.
It was a pleasure to return home to Villa Briancon each evening and we have no hesitation in recommending it to friends or relatives. We imagine it must also be a wonderful base in the summer months - something for us to think about for the future?"

"We stayed at Mas des Sorgues for two glorious weeks. Our first week we had 3 couples join us and the second week my 3 adult children and their friends joined us. The house and property were perfect. The house is beautifully decorated, and very well stocked. The bedrooms were spacious and all had there own bathrooms. We spent most of our time out of doors playing petenque, ping pong or just hanging out by the lovely pool. The town of Le Thor is centrally located. We visited many of the small towns, as well as Avignon, Arles, St Remy, Les Baux. Beverly is wonderful and set us up with a tour guide of the Vineyards, we loved Olivier so much, we booked him again for the second week. Beverly also organized a chef for us. We all loved Cossette and the incredible 3 course meals she prepared for us on 6 occasions.. I can't say enough about this amazing house. Our friends and family can't wait until we can go back again!"

"This house offers more than what the listing says: a soul, character, absolute calm, and a wonderful sense of isolation, despite being very close to Bonnieux. It is fully equipped for everything, including small children, which mean we did not have to bring cot beds, dining table boosters, or kids plates and glasses etc. Our kids absolutely loved it. Marc and his team are super responsive and helpful. It is rare to find a place that is beyond expectations like this. We and our friends had a blast. Strongly recommended."
