We booked our stay at the Provence Country Club via Siglinde Fischer-Charming Places in Hochdorf, Germany. The Apartments at the Provence Country Club are run on a daily basis by Madame Vacances, from Chambery, France. These are top companies and are easy to work with, quick, efficient, and very helpful to insure you have a good vacation.
The apartment complexes which comprise the Provence Country Club are actually located on a golf course, and are therefore a gated community. Like most vacation homes, it appears, and I cannot verify, that each apartment has a separate owner, an investor, who uses the apartment themselves, and allows Madame Vacances to rent it out the rest of the year. Good for all involved. The particular apartment we had was actually two each complete one-bedroom apartments, each with it's own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, and terrace with a connecting doorway. The connecting doorway did not have an actual closable door, so it is always used as a two bedroom apartment. The living room couch was in both cases available as a single or double bed, so there you get the possibility to sleep more, I would guess up to 8. Personally I would not do that as it would be too cramped for me, but for two adults and up to 2 children per apartment should not be a problem. When the couch is in the bed position, it rather fills up the living room, leaving no space over for a table and chairs on which to eat - you would need to eat on the terrace, weather permitting.
The location we had was ground floor, facing the #2 or #3 green. We are not golfers, and wandering about the course is both forbidden and dangerous, so I am not sure which was there, but it was a lovely view. The apartments are located in several building clusters, each with a separate name, very attractive. Our row of apartments had a total f 20 apartments, all set off at an angle, so you still have a lot of privacy.
Each apartment is very complete. You really don't need to bring anything at all with you except food and clothing. The kitchen has everything, equipment wise, utensils, dishes, bowls, etc. that you need, towels and bedding you pick up when checking in. a daily maid service is not included in the rental price.
This location is fantastic for exploring the Vaucluse. You are right in the middle of the countryside and are not pinned down in a town. Evenings are quiet, and if you play golf and don't want to tour around, there is a lot to do there too.
If anything is missing from the apartment, and you get an invneotory listing upon arrival, they will replace it almost immediately. Other electrical/water problems are fixed daily. These services, as well as a morning bread service, are all outstanding. We were missing a fork, it was replaced while I was standing there.
The bathroom was large, with tub and shower, separate electrical heater, toilet in a separate room. Tile floors are easy to keep clean. A flat screen TV with many European channels on hand.
Complaints? Our only concern was the couch. Since it doubled for some people as a bed, it was rather deep as a couch, and you could not sit on it with your back against the back and still keep your feet on the floor. But in the summer not many people will stay inside and watch TV, but we were there in September and the evenings and nights are cool, and to sit outside for any length of time is too cold.
Our neighbors were there for the 3rd time. We stayed 14 days. terrific.
