A fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

As you approach the villa's long private driveway you are transported back to another era. The villa is beautiful. You enter through a grand marble foyer and that is just the beginning of your exquisate surroundings. You can spend a day just walking around the amazing property and swimming in the pool. The pictures only begin to do villa justice. Its location is central to most of the major sites. The hostess, Catherine, was very helpful with her recommendations and made our family of 12 adults and an infant feel right at home. Her recomendations for the butcher, bakery and restaurant, Ou Ravi Provencau, were just what we were looking for. We could not have asked fora better, place to stay. Kathy & Bob

Perfect Provencial Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 nights in this idyllic country manor conveniently located a short drive to dozens of charming villages and attractions. This property comfortably slept our party of eleven (two families consisting of 4 adults and 7 kids), and could have easily accommodated more had we reserved one of the cottages next door. The moment we turned into the driveway -- a quarter mile long and lined with sycamore trees -- we knew we had chosen wisely. The estate is tucked away on a hidden dirt road with nary a neighbor in sight. It is surrounded by horse fields (it's a working, and highly-decorated equestrian farm), national parkland (with an interesting set of trails) and a diverse array of local flora and fauna. The house is enveloped in an intoxicating smell of jasmine, rosemary and lavender. The pool is gorgeous, set amid a private lawn flanked by and century old olive trees.

Given the beauty of the exterior of the home, it's impressive that the interior of the home far from disappoints. It has beautiful "bones" with stone floors, moldings, high ceilings, elegant living spaces and a modern kitchen. The two master bedrooms are very nice (of the two, the main master is more desirable). The remaining bedrooms are well decorated, but unlike the master bedrooms, lack air conditioning (that said, fans are readily available in all rooms).

Our host, Catherine, couldn't have been nicer. She gave is some great suggestions and greeted us with a cold bottle of rose upon arrival. We hope to visit again, and will definitely recommend this estate to friends.

Travel in France at mouries

  • 5 of 5

I spent one week in this fabulous site this year and the last three years....

You're really welcome in this very kind family.

The swimming pool near of centuries trees is as quiet as beautiful like "gone with the wind" house.

My 3 children and dogs were happy running everywhere !

My husband and I were very very pleased as usual in this property.

See us next summer !!!

And thanks for everything.
