“Beyond expectations!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Website doesn't do it justice! Beautiful property in a great location to explore Provence. Just back from a 2 week stay with my 3 Siblings and our Spouses - we all loved it! The Villa is fantastic and Sebastian is tremendous - always willing to help and was available 24/7. Robion has terrific bakeries, grocery stores, Pharmacy and butchers- all a short walk from the Villa. Old Robion is good to see too and you will enjoy a visit to Cafe de Poste. Don't hesitate to book this property - you won't be disappointed. Enjoy Provence!

“La Ferme St. Roch is like having a home in heaven”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

La Ferme is beautifully appointed and like staying in a home, not at all hotel-like. The space was fantastic for eight people and could have accommodated one more couple comfortably.The property manager is very personable, attentive to detail and extremely helpful about planning daily trips. We had a chef from Aix (Ronald Guillaume) make dinner for us one night and it was spectacular in the setting, including the en pleine aire dining room. It is located in a lovely little town (Robion) with all the shops needed for having meals at La Ferme (we highly recommend the boulanger with the wood-fired oven) and easily accessible to many many beautiful hillside towns within short drives. It is also accessible to the highway for reaching the coast within 90 minutes (either Cassis or the Camargue). We will be singing the praises of this lovely home away from home for a long time and would definitely go there again.

“Perfect stay for our cycling holiday ”
Reviewed August 28, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

The photos and description undersold this fabulous house. It is larger than we expected, with different levels to rooms that meant it took a while to learn our way round. There are two standout bedrooms with lots of space and well equipped bathrooms ensuite, that make you feel quite spoilt. The aircon (in three of the bedrooms) is great to have. Downstairs there was everything we needed in the kitchen. We enjoyed using the BBQ and spent our evenings eating and sitting outside at the long table.

The house is clean and beautifully presented - it's more than a holiday home as there are plenty of pictures and objects to give it a personal touch.

We had a problem with the fridge on the first day. With a quick text, Sebastian was with us and measuring up for the new part. He is lovely - he comes to do the pool in the morning (when guests are asleep) and we saw him at Saturday/Tuesday cleans when he comes with the cleaners.

Deposit was fully returned with no quibbles, despite the fridge problem.

As a mix of keen and irregular cyclists, this house was positioned just right. We drove to Ventoux - some cycled too - and did many more local routes. The totally flat cycle route from Robion (just over the canal) to, eventually, Apt was a boon. It meant everyone could cycle safely as it takes the path of an old rail line. There are plenty of challenging and picturesque routes from here.

There are a couple of ok restaurants in Robion, and we liked the bar (turn left from the house towards the old town) where the locals gather after work.

Nearly forgot to mention the pool - large enough to swim properly in. Sebastian put the heating on in the pool when the temperature dipped in the second week, although we didn't really need it.

Robion is a few steps away for bread, basics from the mini supermarket. Larger supermarkets are a short drive.

All in all, a perfect holiday destination for us and we hope very much to return.

“We had an outstanding 3 weeks at the Ferme St Roch with family and friends”

We celebrated our birthdays and wedding anniversary over 3 weeks at the farmhouse with family and friends. It was an outstanding time and was enjoyed by guests 9-80! The farmhouse is a beautiful place and was key to our enjoying the village of Robion and the surrounding towns of Provence.
All the famhouse facilities are wonderful and exactly as shown in the website photos. We spendt hours enjoying meals in the outdoor kitchen/dining area. Sebastian Jary, one of the owners, is outstanding and was a great help during our stay and was very patiient answering our many questions about life in Provence and Robion. We visited 24 nearby ancient villages surrounding Robion during our stay and also went to larger towns Avignon, Marseille, Nimes and St Remy. Market days in many of these towns was a highlight and adventure for all of us. And several of our group were interested in the wine produced in Provence and they enjoyed several wineries and tastings.
We loved the farmhouse and it made our trip a memorable event for the whole family and our friends. Thanks to Sebastian for making it all possible. We will be back!!

“Excellent Stay in a Character Property”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

We all loved St Roch. There were 7 of us in our family group and there was plenty of space for everyone around the pool and in the beautiful courtyard. We spent virtually our whole time outside as the weather was splendid. The gardens are very private and secure. The house is very comfortable and the beds excellent. The two master suites are extremely spacious with very good ensuite bathrooms. The bedroom adjacent to the swimming pool courtyard also worked well for our teenage son, who loved the privacy. The kitchen is very well equipped and house exceptionally well maintained and clean. The pool is a lovely size, the table tennis and snooker tables were great fun and the three bikes were used daily. Robion is a small attractive village that satisfied all of our daily needs. Sebastien, who manages the property, has exceptional English is is very professional and helpful.

My only negative comment would be about the lack of air conditioning in two of the bedrooms and the snooker room. These rooms did have very effective fans but the noise can be annoying. The weather was unusually hot whilst we were there, which did not help.

You will definitely want for nothing at St Roch and I would highly recommend the house and the area. Gordes, Menerbes and Avignon are very close by and there is lots to see in the locality. Take the TGV to Avignon and hire a car or fly to Marseille and you arrive in Robion in no time at all.

Our family had a lovely time in St Roch and would not hesitate to return. I can see why so many people return year after year. It is a little private haven in a very special part of France.

“A beautiful traditional farmhouse with all the facilities of a luxury villa”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

The farmhouse has everything you require for a great holiday: lovely bedrooms with excellent and modern bathrooms and lots of room, a farmhouse kitchen with all the equipment you would need, several public rooms which cater for all numbers and moods, excellent outdoor facilities and pool and not least an attentive and helpful host who was there when you needed him but left you to enjoy the holiday.
We particularly liked the inner courtyard for meals and relaxing in the evening and when we wished some shade. The barbecue was well used. It was also a great place for the children to play as it was private and fully enclosed. The outer garden was a lovely sunny area and the pool was clean with sparkling water and lighting for an evening swim.The main lounge was great when we were all together but the games room and the library we always there for quiet moments. Robion is not the most attractive village in Provence but it has a range of eating places to suit all tastes and a good range of shops. It is also well placed for visiting all the popular tourist and beauty spots in Provence. Last but not least Sebastian was always ready to provide information and help particularly when we organised a celebration meal in the farmhouse when we had the food provided by a local restaurant. All in all everyone from the youngest to the oldest had a wonderful time and we would certainly recommend St Roch Farmhouse for a great family holiday.

“Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I can't rate the Ferme St Roch highly enough. We stayed with family and children for ten nights. Perfect from start to finish. The farmhouse is stunning with everything you could want and more. We had to drag the children out of the heated pool every day. Beautifully quiet although easy walking distance to bars, shops and restaurants. Bikes, ping pong, fabulous BBQ area and covered dining area. Very comfortable and well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. I could go on and on. You won't be disappointed!! A special thank you to Sebastian. So helpful and who really goes out of his way to make sure you have an amazing holiday!!
