About Astrid Megel

I was born, in Alsace-Lorraine, moved the Paris region with my family in 1950. After having worked in Banking in Germany, real estate in South of France and run a Michelin rated Alsatian Restaurant in Paris, I moved to Santa Barbara, California, where I have spend many years in restaurant and high end catering business. I retired in 2005, and decided to spend some time in Provence, where I now have the great pleasure to accomodate my international guests at Villa Vanesse.

Astrid Megel purchased this Villa in 2005

Why Astrid Megel chose Sarrians

This villa was chosen because its very special location, the size of the property, the quality of construction, and all the possibilities the floor plan was offering. We wanted to renovate the villa and create an open/american kitchen, a bathroom for each bedroom, an additional private quarter (the studio appartement) in the same building, and our priotity was a very quiet location. Having lived in cities all my live, this was the little peacefull paradise I was looking for.

What makes this Villa unique

The property which offers great privacy because it is tucked away on a private lane, in a very quiet residential area, is also located at walking distance to the center of the village and a main Supermarket and only 10 to 20 minutes away (by car) from major towns, Carpentras, Avignon, Orange, Gigondas, Chateauneuf du pape, L'Isle sur la sorgue. From the large second floor terrasse we can enjoy the view on the famous Mont Ventoux that was made so popular by the Tour de France.

                                                                  Michel M.

                                                                  Les aménagements intérieurs et extérieurs sont de qualité et bien réfléchis. Il y a tout ce dont on pourrait avoir besoin.

                                                                  L’accueil et la gentillesse de la propriétaire sont à souligner, cela jusqu’à la présence à notre arrivée d’un panier garni pour un très bon petit déjeuner, plus du vin pour les repas suivants.

                                                                  En résumé, nous avons passés un excellent séjour.

                                                                  6 Americans in Provence

                                                                  Absolutely fablous! The villa was exactly as described. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, who could not have been nicer. We recommend this to all Americans as the owner is fluent in English and happy to answer questions, or solve any issues with a smile and a great laugh. The house was immaculately clean and perfect for a relaxing vacation taking day trips all around Provence. Great time!

                                                                  Fabulous villa and excellent service

                                                                  Paul H.

                                                                  Villa Vanesse is a beautiful and charming villa. The location is secluded yet close to numerous places of interest... Avignon, many vineyards, Sorgues... so much to see!

                                                                  Many restaurants in the area to recommend as well, Chez Serge, Le Vivier... And should you want to cook yourself the kitchen and tools in the villa are first class. So much to see and do! But the villa itself, with the lovely heated pool tempts one to simply laze in your bathing suit (or without) and soak in the sun.

                                                                  Astrid, the owner, is as gracious and charming as the villa and when we had a problem it was solved so quickly it was a distant memory before we had to leave.

                                                                  A super spot to spend a vacation. Thank you Astrid!

                                                                  A great hide-away

                                                                  Patricia C.

                                                                  Villa Vannesse is a well maintained and relaxing paradise on the outskirts of Sarrians. And for once we found fantastic kitchen equipment including sharp knives!! What a treat as we both like to cook. The outdoor kitchen is great fun and keeps cooking smells out of the house.

                                                                  There was lots of space for our family of 4 with a cool vine-covered patio giving onto the sunny pool.

                                                                  Astrid was very helpful and thoughtful, and responded rapidly to the few questions we had.

                                                                  We hiked the Dentelles de Montmirail and visited the Abbaye of Sennaque. But we appreciated the restful calm of Villa Vannesse most of all.

                                                                  Outstanding property and owner

                                                                  Roger M.Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

                                                                  Our group of four adult couples enjoyed our stay in Sarrians immensely, sampling all that Provence has to offer. The location is excellent, the villa is marvellous and the owner Astrid is an absolute dream! We travelled daily and were no more than a 40 minute drive from almost all of our destinations. The villa was roomy, perfectly suitable for 8 adults or for a single large family. We were able to swim every day in the pool, cooked many meals in either the indoor or outdoor kitchen, and enjoyed the privacy of the large property. Astrid recommended several excellent restaurants not far away and other jewels not familiar to many. Highly recommended! We definitely want to come back!

                                                                  Fantastic home base to experience France

                                                                  James S.Denver, CO

                                                                  I feel extremely fortunate to have found Astrid's wonderful house for a week at the start of September. We looked forward to starting each day with breakfast outside by the pool, and ended many days cooking at both the inside and outside kitchens. We even made use of the pasta roller/cutter for fresh pasta one evening!

                                                                  Astrid was a wonderful host, and was extremely helpful when we had our only snafu of a light switch that didn't work.

                                                                  The town of Sarrians offers many different grocery options and made an excellent starting point to experience Avignon, Gordes, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and more. Astrid's recommendations for activities, markets and restaurants really added to our experience as well.

                                                                  Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!
