“Home away from home”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a fabulous time and found the house just right for us, Montelimar is a very relaxing environment, and the area very convenient to access some great places to visit – there’s plenty more for us to see and do there. We found the house homely and functional. Dealing with Brian (the owner) was a pleasure and made the organisation of our holiday, and therefore the holiday itself, so much more enjoyable.

“ticked every box and much more, simply wonderful”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

A lovely house that felt much more like a cherished home. Excellent convenient location for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside and close to town to wonder in for a little shopping or, for an evening drink at one of the many bars or restaurants.
The owner encourages feedback to maintain the incredibly high standards, and even allows guests to use their soft top car.
The garden, pool, terrace, and other outdoor areas are all absolutely fabulous and well equipped.
I only wish we had stayed longer.

“Great place to stay for doing lots.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We've recently returned from two weeks in Portes de Provence and had a whale of a time.

The owner - Brian - is a very easy person to deal with and very helpful. His communication before and during the booking process was excellent (in fact it was so good we were suspicious, sorry Brian) and his directions to the property were spot on.

We were an extended family of six and a dog. Two forty-somethings, two twenty-somethings and two teen children; so the house suited us very well.

Downsides were:
- pool cover was missing (we were expecting this, as it had been damaged duing a storm and was due to be repaired) which possibly contributed to the pool temperature ~22°C air temp ~32°C
- no loo in the en suite for the master bedroom (I actually didn't find this an issue but the other half grumbled)
- house had not been well cleaned prior to our arrival (lounge hadn't been touched)

Aside from these, fairly minor points, we loved the place. The barbecue outside is so good for al fresco dining; it's simple to use and close to the large table outside, so when we ate at home, we were outside nearly all the time. The wi-fi was dearly loved by the children, including the older ones, who found the ability to use Blackberry messenger so important to keep in touch with peeps at home vital (so much for going on hols and sending a postcard)

The house itself, is 10 minutes walk from the centre of town and we walked in pretty much every day; for the children, this was a godsend, as whilst the older two prefer peace and tranquility the younger ones seem to like noise and chaos, so they were off to town every day.

Although the house is on a busy road, it is set far enough back and has such good double-glazing, that we couldn't hear traffic noise in our bedroom with the windows closed. It's a good idea to close the windows to stop the bugs and the fan/air conditioning worked very well at keeping the temperature pleasant.

The kitchen is well-enough equipped for cooking (could do with plastic tumblers for the pool and a microwave - about 30 euros from the large Carrefour) and all the appliances worked well.

The owners supply a vast amount of useful information about the locale; places for sight-seeing, places to shop and eat and a convertible car (which we didn't use) in the garage. We went to lots of places suggested and they were all as described. There's a river with a path just across the road, perfect for walking the dog.

This was the 5th villa we've stayed at in the south of France and it's location makes it great value for money. We will return Brian, everybody had a great time and thank you for being so helpful and phoning us whenever we sent you a query.
