Beautiful property in a stunning location.
We booked this property to be near Aix-en-Provence for a family wedding. The location was perfect for this and the airport. Florence was very helpful and welcoming and spoke much better English than our attempts at French. Inside the house is beautiful, we had the entire house as booked for 6 of us, plenty of room for everyone. The air conditioning was very much appreciated as it was in the high 30s during our stay.The pool area was also very good with enough sun beds for us and a few of our family who visited us during our weeks stay. This is a working vineyard, the bottle of wine left for us to try was so good we bought another too. We didn’t venture out far due to the purpose of our stay, but would very happily come back here and do some exploring of the area. Thankyou Florence for making our stay perfect!
Everything we needed for a relaxing stay in Provence.
Pleasant, spacious house, had everything we needed. Conveniently placed for Aix and within striking distance of Cassis...although because the weather was so hot we spent a lot more time by the pool than we anticipated. Air conditioning was a real plus.
Quiet retreat/friendly family
Florence was very friendly and helpful. Property was beautiful. House was clean, infinity pool was great, Best to have a car, but taxis were available. Was a bit hard to find...house not visible from road. Would stay here again.
hello i'm happy to have a great moment in my property see you a later
Cute and comfortable house, but very far from everything else
The house is very comfortable and Florence was very friendly and professional. However, there were things that future renters need to be aware of prior to booking.
A/C works great.
Sunflower fields are gorgeous.
Beds/bathrooms are comfortable.
Winery is onsite.
Pool is actually shared with Florence and her family who live next-door. At one point, while our party of 6 was lounging by the pool, a truck pulled up and an elderly man, woman, and their dog asked if they could join. Being polite, our group said yes. The elderly man took his pants off and went swimming in his underwear. We later found out that this was the home owner's family, so just be aware that you are not getting a private pool.
The drive to the actual house is a lot longer because you need to go up a winding dirt road. This is not a huge problem if you have a rental car and you have a lot of time, but we had one night where we had to be picked up by a taxi/Uber and there were no drivers willing to go up the dirt pathway. If you are looking for less rustic and more upscale, definitely book somewhere else. Also, driving 10 minutes up the dirt road one way every time takes a lot of time if you are going in and out to Aix or any of the nearby towns.
Trash disposal was a hassle. There is no large trash can, so we had to take the bags of trash and transport it via car to a trashcan that is at the end of the driveway. Again, this is a hassle if you're on vacation. Plus, the car gets stinky.
We were looking forward to cooking a few meals in the kitchen, but the kitchen cookware needed some updating. For example, the nonstick pan had teflon flakes that were crumbling and there were no other pans to use.
Overall, it's a great house with a great owner, but we probably would have booked somewhere else if we knew exactly how far it was from Aix in real time and the small little details that were inconveniencing.
Perfect retreat for a group of old friends! Idyllic location! Beautiful home! Perfect vacation!
The right choice for our family
We, (me, my partner, our 10 year old son, and my partner's parents) were midway through our 5 week vacation. The previous two weeks we traveled by train to a few other countries staying in hotels/apartments for 2/3 days at a time and were ready to slow down and stay at a property for a longer period. In planning this trip, we liked the pictures we saw on Homeaway.com and decided this place would be a good choice.
We rented a car in Marseille for the remainder of our trip and made the drive to Ventabren. It took us some time to find the property, even with our GPS, because the actual house on the property is somewhat remote.
Once we arrived we were greeted by Florence. Florence was pleasant and informative-she recommended some places for dinner and where we were in relation to markets, cities, etc. During our stay, there was a problem with television reception which Florence had fixed immediately.
The place was clean and spacious, it had air conditioning and a washer. Exactly what we were looking for. After two weeks of eating out every night, we were ready to fix our own meals, relax and enjoy the property. We took day trips to Ventabren, Aix en Provence, Roussillon, Carry-le-Rouet, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Marseille, then returned back to the property for a swim and dinner. We found the local bakery and went there every morning and then in the evening for desserts. We liked the remoteness of the area and being surrounded by grapevines. The land surrounding the property is a work in progress and there isn't really a "living room" for everyone to gather, but since a couple of the bedrooms were spacious it didn't really matter to us. Besides we were on vacation and we were having a great time. This property was the perfect choice for our family.
Thank you Florence for all your help.
You will discover the Blue Coast (40km) and its emblematic locations: Martigues, Carro, Sausset but Cassis, Marseille and of course Aix-en-Provence (20km). It is also an ideal starting point for many hikes, either in the range of the Sainte-Victoire (40km) or to explore the villages of the Luberon.
