We had a marvelous time at Mas de la Rabassière last week. Michael welcomed us with such warmth and hospitality that we immediately felt relaxed. The cozy fire in the drawing room and the welcoming glass, followed by a splendid 4-course dinner in the entertaining company of Michael and Eileen (other guest), gave us a perfect first evening! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and Michael let us enjoy freely the rest of the house, the beautiful olive-tree garden and the terrace with view. Michael is a great music-lover (which was greatly appreciated by Kris as professional musician) and has impressive knowledge of history, the Provence and almost every other topic you can imagine. This made him a very entertaining host. The rest of our stay was in the same atmosphere, which sometimes seemed a bit surreal, as being in another world. Michael recommended us a beautiful long walk in the surroundings and even guided us around the day after in the vicinity and through his neighbor’s vineyards (in beautiful autumn-colours). The last day Michael brought us back to TGV-station Aix-en-Provence. His enthusiastic, warm and very personal touch made this short visit a nice break in our sometimes too busy lives. We keep very good memories of this stay and hope to return one day in La Rabassière when visiting the rest of the Provence. Kris and Nele (Belgium)
