Charming historical village
Philippe is a very kind and welcoming host. He’s generous with his time and knowledge of Provence giving excellent recommendations on what to see in the area. The studio is small but very comfortable with all the amenities needed and an incredible outside courtyard space! I stayed six weeks and didn’t want to leave. I made friendships that will last a lifetime.
Thank you Emmy for your kind comments. It has been a great pleasure to welcome you to my home and share many good moments with you. I hope to meet you again soon in Florida or in Provence. Kind Regards, Philippe
An absolutely charming place to stay. Set in a 15th century village on top of a mountain,!
Phillipe was a WONDERFUL host, helping us with great places to eat and things to do. The lodging was charming, filled with interesting pieces and artifacts from his travels. Very comfortable place to stay. Where his place is located is perfect for excursions within an hour away. Phillipe made the experience personal, good conversation and you can tell that he honestly cares about his guests having a good time. We just got back and are ready to go again. I would HIGHLY recommend this place! Just beautiful!

Lovely little hideaway!
The studio is tiny but very cozy, with an excellent shower and cooking facilities, and a terrace for meals under the stars. My dog and I spent two very happy months there, and I miss it already. The village is lovely: massive stone houses and stair-case streets between them, built on the steep west slope of a little hill that catches all the breezes from the sea -- which reduces the mosquito population! No bar-cafés, other than an informal weekend one in the village, and no shops, but there is a post office; and a good organic bakery, a pharmacy, a vet, and an Intermarché are all just over a km away at the bottom of the hill. The Etang de Berre is visible from the village heights, where there are sports facilities, walking trails, and a little family restaurant (a rather more exclusive one is in the village). There is only one road through the village center traversible by car, and that one quite narrow in places, but there is free parking to be had in parking lots within 100m of the studio, with some closer spaces for loading and unloading. Philippe is extraordinarily kind, friendly, and full of good suggestions for local visits, local restaurants, and trips through the surrounding area. He knows Marseille as well as Aix, so don't hesitate to ask for advice!

Excellent accueil et sens de l'hospitalité. Le village est d'un charme fou et c'est très calme. Le propriétaire nous a donné énormément d'informations concernant les endroits à visiter, voire même davantage sur ce que Tourisme information aurait pu nous donner ! Grâce à cela, nous avons découvert de très belles choses dans un périmètre de 100 Km. Nous en garderons un très bon souvenir.
Martine & Jean-Pierre,
Ce fut pour moi un réel plaisir de vous rencontrer et de vous recevoir chez moi sur Ventabren.
Un couple très sympathique et très attachant !!!
J'espère vous revoir bientôt sur Aix ou sur Montréal.
Fantastic stay. Home away from home!
I just completed a week stay in this cozy and charming studio in the heart of one of the most beautiful villages in Provence.
Everything is this place is just perfect. The small loft is decorated with taste, mix of Provencal and Oriental style given by the owner a well traveled person.
Philippe is the consummate host. I meet him every evening after his work and my exploring day in Provence for a delicious "aperitif" and delectable conversation.
Thanks Philippe for your time and your good tips!
Can't wait to visit you again!
