“Fantastic honeymoon, perfect surroundings and exceptional hospitality”

We decided to take our honeymoon in the South of France and this holiday cottage had fantastic reviews. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, as Michel and Francois are exceptional hosts. The evening meals, which came with free wine/drinks were home cooked french cuisine, often made from ingredients from Michel's garden. We ate at the cottage 4 nights out of 6, because the meals were so enjoyable and reasonably priced. The cottage overlooks the Rhone valley which includes views of Chateauneuf du Pape and Avignon. We hired a car (which is necessary) but our advice would be to insist on as small a car as necessary as the roads are very thin and windy! We would recommend this holiday to anyone wanting to get away and relax in the tranquil settings of Provence.

We had the most amazing stay with Michel & Françoise at their beautiful home with pool. We stopped here for 3 nights during our month long Europe trip. The town is charming, the pool and views were so beautiful and the hosts are now like family! We rented the entire upstairs for 2 adults and 3 children and they treated us like family. What a wonderful stay and we really hope to visit again in the future. Wonderful stay!

“Absolutely beautiful.”

Myself, my partner and our young son have just returned from a four night stay with Michel and Francoise and would recommend this to anyone who loves peace and quiet, tranquility and a relaxing stay. The house and grounds are magnificent. Sitting outside each night on the terrace, eating dinner and drinking wine whilst being serenaded by cicadas and the warm gentle breeze will not be forgotten. These memories will forever be cherished. Thank you Michel and Francoise for a truly wonderful stay, it was fantastic. We were made to feel so welcomed and the care you took with our son was just lovely.
On a practical note, having your own car for this area is a must. We saw some amazing sites, all within an easy drive from this place. Avignon is 15min away, the hill top village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape 10min. The Pont du Gard is a must but Michel's knowledge of this area will suffice in terms of putting together an itinerary. The cooling pool was just what
Was needed at the end of a hot day. There's also an outdoor cooking area if you wanted to cook but both Michel and Francoise's cooking was superb - really traditional French meals. We ate there every night and were impressed with each meal (Michel's cheeses were superb).
Our one year old son loved the dogs abaya and Oscar - even if you're not an animal person this would not be a problem . The dogs were very gentle.

If we ever return to Avignon (perhaps next summer again), we will certainly return and stay here. I would recommend this if you want to get a real sense of Provençal life, and savour a few special moments away.

Thank you Michel and Francoise.

“A memorable stay, absolutely wonderful hosts”

We stayed for 4 nights at Avignon with Michel & Francoise at their lovely B&B. They were such wonderful hosts, making us feel at home right through our stay. The house is big (we didn't use many parts of it) and the rooms clean and tastefully done. It is located 15 minutes away from the town in a quiet neighborhood, away from all the distractions of the city. A rental car would make it easy to go around, but we could not manage one because of the long weekend. Michel made sure that we did not have a problem because of that. He picked us up from the TGV station (and dropped us back when we left) and even dropped us to the town a couple of times.

Breakfast was simple and nice, and dinners more elaborate and often garnished with fresh herbs from the garden. The house has a pool and my 3 year old enjoyed his time there. We also chose to take a day long ride with Michel through the countryside and the places were gorgeous with all the vineyards and cherry trees..

Overall a wonderful experience, with a wonderful family.

“Very Good BnB”

Very good. The host (Michel) even met us at the Avignon TGV and guided us to the BnB, as well as helping us with the directions to other places as well. The rooms were pretty good. Although there was no AC, it was cool enough anyways. There was also free wifi. The breakfast was pretty good as well, there were a lot of fruits, tea, coffee, eggs, yoghurt, as well as bread like baguettes, croissants, brioche etc. The dinner was good too (Although you have to pay for it) and you have to order 24 hours in advance, btw. There was also a pool, a deck where you could see the city of Avignon. The dogs were also good and not annoying. (Tip the owners do speak English)

It is impossible to exaggerate what a perfect holiday we had in Sauveterre at the home Michel and Francoise. Their house is gorgeous. It is set in a beautiful garden with views for miles and miles around. It has the added delight of a big swimming pool that helped us keep cool in the lovely Provencal summer. Every day we enjoyed generous hospitality from this delightful couple, together with delicious meals and wine. It was altogether an unforgettable experience. They were very helpful with local sightseeing ideas and directions. I can completely recommend this holiday home to anyone. We will certainly want to go back and stay with Michel and Francoise again one day.

“Magnifique!”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We just spent three days at the vacation rental of Françoise and Michel just outside Avignon.
The accommodations were top notch. We slept like babies and ate like royalty. Françoise took excellent care of us. She fed us great coffee and breakfast and gave us tips on what to see in the area. She was very friendly and accommodating and we felt like family from the time we arrived. We loved the property and could have just relaxed in the yard with their two adorable dogs all day, but instead we drove around to several towns and villages to see the sites. Their house is right in the middle of Provence, ten minutes from Avignon and close to everything you need to see. We highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to chill out in a friendly, warm, and family like environment. We look forward to returning one day.
