About Lis & Graham Steeden
We are a Danish-English couple, who just happen to love Provence any time of the year. We have travelled through France for many years, but always towards the south, where we've spent many nice holidays, and for years dreamt about 'that' place somewhere in Provence. When we came across Pont Royal(PR) in the late summer of 2007, we just fell in love with the place, as it's was so beautiful and green, the golf course surrounded by amazing landscape and mountains, so man y facilities at PR + the bonus of so many beautiful places to visit, not far from PR, it was easy, we had finally found our place in Provence! We now also run a small B&B in a lovely old house in a village only 10min away!
Lis & Graham Steeden purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Lis & Graham Steeden chose Mallemort
While visiting our favourite city of art, light and fountains, Aix-en-Provence in September 2007, we had already decided we wanted to visit PR as it was not far away, with a view to spend a future holiday there, but found that houses and apartments were being released for sale, off plan. We agreed that this was the place for us, and initially wanted a 2-bed house, but our agent said you get the best views if you move up and above, and we're glad we took his advice, as the sun sets are absolutely fantastic, never stops to amaze us, whatever time of the year we are there. So finally in the summer 2009 we finally took over the apartment, but we still had a lot to do ie install a kitchen and even a sink in the toilet, as these did not come with the apartment. A very helpful man with a very big van helped us getting a lot of furniture/things to the apartment - and it was a lot of hard work. However, late summer 2010 we could finally invite friends, family and others to come and stay, as we felt the apartment was just as we wanted it to be...and we and others have enjoyed the place since then.
What makes this Apartment unique
Driving through the gates to PR always makes us smile, as we know a wonderful and relaxing time awaits us. The views from our loggia are amazing with the Luberon mountains curving around to the right and the Alpilles on the horizon, and we never tire of the 445 acres of green land covered in beautiful trees, bushes, plants, flowers, lakes and the beautiful houses are always a delight to look at. If you are a golfer, you will find yourself on one of the top 10 French golf courses in France, and if you are not a golfer, never mind, as there is so much to do at PR or out and about, whatever your age! Our private communal pool is 1min away from the apartment! It is also possible to have access various of activities via the P&V reception, but all are on a first come first basis, and you have to pay for these facilities directly to P&V! NB! WE ARE NOT PART OF P&V - we are private owners! Breakfast, lunch and/or dinner on the loggia is always lovely, and at night with some nice food, some local rosé, good company, lots of flickering candles and with the mountains slowly vanishing into the most colourful sunset haze, it's a pretty special place to be. On a practical note: Marseille Airport is only 35min away and the wonderful TGV in both Avignon and Aix are only 35min away! Then all there is to say is - ENJOY - and remember you're on holiday and it's la belle Provence, so everything works at a slower pace! :)

Relax in Comfort
We have had such a lovely holiday in the apartment and really enjoyed the facilities and relaxing atmosphere. My wife and I are not golfers but you don’t need to be to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this resort. It felt very safe for the children and we enjoyed the relaxing pool. The apartment is beautiful and has everything you need and more. The sunsets from the balcony are amazing and round off everyday perfectly. It is obvious that Lis and Graham love the culture and atmosphere of Provence and this is reflecting in the attention to detail in the apartment.
We can fully recommend this beautiful apartment with incredibly helpful owners; we are planning a return soon to relax in comfort once again in such beautiful surroundings
Beautiful apartment in Beautiful location.
My husband, 9 month old baby and I have just returned from a wonderful week in Lis and Graham's beautiful apartment in Pont Royal.
The Pont Royal golf resort is absolutely stunning, which beautiful views to be enjoyed everywhere you look, from the greens of the golf course with the mountains in the distance, to the gorgeous lakes and restaurants in the village itself.
The apartment was absolutely delightful- The moment you walk through the door you can instantly see how much attention to detail went into designing and equipping it for your every need. From the highly tasteful décor to all the little extra special touches, the owners have ensured that every need was catered for whilst providing a very welcoming and luxurious feel.
The owners, were extremely helpful in providing lots of information on places to visit, restaurants to sample etc, which really made our holiday. Thanks to their recommendations we were able to explore the very best that Provence had to offer and enjoy the beautiful region in the 7 short days we were there.
The sunsets from the loggia were beautiful, and we also enjoyed relaxing by the lovely shared swimming pool- which was very clean and quiet (we had it to ourselves all week).
All in all an outstanding apartment in a beautiful location.
I can highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to enjoy a relaxing week in Provence and we can not wait to go back soon.

Great place for family holiday in Provence
We stayed in the apartment in July 2010 and enjoyed it very much. The kids wree particularly pleased with the pool. The kitchen facilities are impressive, as is the attention to detail and design in all the rooms. Liz and Graham were available (by phone) to answer any questions we had and the apartment is equipped with a range of books on the region, making planning day trips very easy indeed. We'd recommend the apartment any time, in particular as a base for exploring the area.
Many thanks for your kind review.
It's absolutely wonderful to know that you and your family had a great time, and for us it's very important that you did have a great time, and very much also as you were our first guests.
All the best to you and your family, and maybe will see you again some time! Take care....
Lis & graham :)
