“Friendly and beautiful”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

From the moment of our arrival Michel and Francoise tremendously welcoming. The scene is majestic with a uninterrupted view across the Rhone to Mount Ventoux and Chateauneuf du Pape. The pool is a good size, well maintained and refreshing in the Provencal sun. Breakfast every morning was excellent and the one evening meal that we had with them was also superb. A great location for touring Avignon and the surrounding area or, as we did, sitting by the pool and enjoying the scenery.

“Sensational stay at Sauvadou”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A unique experience in Sauveterre with Michel and Francoise who made us feel like we were staying with family. The property was beautiful with stunning views and a spectacular pool and gardens looking out over the vista. The rooms where comfortable and very well equipped. Breakfast each morning was fresh and French and served under the glorious patio with Michel's infectious smile. We tried unsuccessfully to convince Francoise and Michel to enjoy our vegemite. Our favourite experiences were dining with our hosts who do a wonderful BBQ or just enjoying a glass of wine together. Whilst only 10 mins easy drive to Avignon it was nice to stay in a lovely quiet town. We drove to the summit of Mont Ventoux and enjoyed the countryside of Provence. We also enjoyed spending time their two beautiful boxers who love attention if you are happy to give it. One of our most memorable experiences in France. We will definitely be back one day.

“Experience the best hospitality in Provence!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a true gem! Rooms were all that you need and more! Spacious and comfortable with beautiful views over the well kept garden, country side and Mount Ventoux in the distance. We were treated on a scrumptious breakfast and dinner on the patio overlooking the garden,the best way to start and end your day. During our stay we experienced real French hospitality. Michel and Francoise invited as to watch soccer world-cup and barbecue with family and friends. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely stay there again.

“Excellent hosts, quiet, calm and beautiful location”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Michel & Francoise are lovely hosts, easy to talk to and very helpful. The property is delightful, with stunning views to Mont Ventoux.
Their cooking is lovely, fresh, local (often their own garden produce) and easily modified to suit individual preferences. Highly recommended

“Well worth a stay with the warm hearted Michel & Francoise”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

It was a wonderful experience to enjoy warm French hospitality with Michel and Francoise. My wife and I traveled with one more family, and it was wonderful to stay on the outskirts of Avignon. We went for walks in the beautiful wine country from their home to the neighboring village. We were overcome by the warmth that Michel and Francoise showed us.

“Excellent Stay - beautiful location wonderful people”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at Michel's property, it is located in a beautiful area, we went for a walk in the area which was beautiful. Michel and his wife were wonderful people and were very good with our kids. The property was about 10 minutes from Avignon which made it easy to get to by car. We had an excellent dinner prepared by them on the last day. The view from their yard is breathtaking.

“Beautiful setting, wonderful place!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This is a lovely place in a beautiful setting, only 15 mins by car from Avignon. The gardens look out to the view of the countryside, the mountains and the town of Chateau-Neuf-Du-Pape to the left. The air is soft and light. My favourite is that the property has its own spring water which we bottled everyday before leaving on excursions. Michel and Françoise are wonderful hosts. The meals are simple and superbly prepared. I loved the breakfasts and Michel's legendary omelettes. Françoise's duck ('maigret de canard') was wonderful, eaten out under the verandah with a good bottle of Cote De Rhone. Michel is great at giving suggestions for exploration of the surrounding area. Michel and Françoise were always helpful and gracious. They even organised to post back something we left behind. It was great to know that we had the lovely pool with a view (although we did not have the chance to use it). We were able to use their fantastic laundry facilities and there was a guest kitchen we could have used if needed (but we preferred our hosts' cooking!). We had the largest double room with its own bathroom which was charming, very comfortable and roomy. When we were there, Françoise told me the story of four people staying over from the UK. They had rented a car, but once at the house they never left it the whole week. She was concerned that they were missing out on seeing the surroundings, but they were reluctant to leave the calm and serenity of the place. I certainly hope to visit again. I can't say enough of what a lovely, peaceful and uplifting place I found this 'mas provencal' to be. "Merci beaucoup Michel et Françoise!"
