About Mrs Bish-Jones

We live in Bedfordshire and my daughters have grown up spending time in this villa and now take their friends to enjoy the area

Mrs Bish-Jones purchased this villa in 2003

Why Mrs Bish-Jones chose Mallemort

The location of this villa has everything for us, if you want to stay in and relax by the pool and cook in the evening it is perfect for entertaining day and night and if you fancy a local restaurant you don't have to drive. If the kids want some independence and activities its all there on site (at an extra charge) and a renowned golf course for the golfing enthusiast. If you like exploring the local area you are ideally placed within a short drive to the magnificent cities of Aix en Provence, Avignon and Marseille or the beautiful villages of L'Isle Sur la Sorgue, St Remy de Provence, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Chateauneuf du pape. The stunning Camargue region is less than an hour away with nature reserves, horse riding, bull fights, rice fields, salt mines and beaches. If that isn't enough the people watching of St Tropez or snow skiing in Gap is all less than 2 hours away.

What makes this villa unique

We bought the villa as a shell and created the outside space to work for any age group at any time of the day or night or time of year for that matter. The wonderful pool house is a unique but practical addition, it offers delightful shade from the sun if required, a convenient place to shower before going in from the pool or to pop to the loo while sunbathing. In the evenings you can BBQ around the pool or on a cooler evening relax with the fire roaring and a lovely glass of wine, very romantic. The Pool is large and spacious with lots of sunbathing space around it or take a lounger onto the grass and lie under one of the trees listening to the crickets. The dining terrace is secluded and convenient to talk to the chef in the kitchen whilst sat at the table or admire the scenery. There is a gravel area with traditional provincial chairs to enjoy a glass of something cold and over looks the church bell tower of Pont Royal and the Luberon. Some games and inflatables are provided but not guaranteed as they do get broken and not always replaced but there is the option to buy a ticket to the wave pool with the slide.

Well-equiped, large and great support from owners local agent; lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

Easy access from Marseille airport about 40 mins drive away; plenty of amenities on site (restaurants, shops, pools, tennis), great golf facilities; house is large, very clean and extremely well-equipped with all the facilities a big family or group requires; very much a home from home; the pool is a good size and our children spent hours in it; they also loved the shady pool room and bbq area, and the adjacent boules area; lots of books and games available, and a good stock of dvds plus uk television channels; the owners local agent was extremely helpful and always accessible via phone (we put a ding in a hire car, for example, and received good advice about how to deal with it, and an offer of translation support if required; when the parasol broke, it was immediately replaced); linen was changed mid-stay, and the pool cleaned several times; the house has a lovely aspect and receives sun all day, which didn't appear to be the case for others nearby; it also has plenty of shade if required; the house is a short walk from the central village square area and lake; we had a runner in our party who enjoyed the routes around the beautifully landscaped if hilly wider Pont Royal country club area, and there is a very good Intermarche supermarket an easy short drive away; the garden area is overlooked from a distance by the balconies of a tastefully-developed three-or-four story run of flats opposite, far enough off to not notice after a few days, but still very present - for the price we would have expected a bit more privacy, hence four rather than five stars. Other than this, our family of four children and two adults had a wonderful time and would return; highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you, i am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and our House Manager looked after you so well. I hope the trees,sunken dining area and covered pool house gave you some of the privacy you expected and as we have lost few trees in the corner of the garden you are referring to, they are being replaced this Autumn with mature ones to screen any area that has been exposed. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Villa - Pont Royal du Golf

  • 5 of 5

We'd been to Pont Royal du Golf several times when our kids were younger (now all 19+) and this year, rented a private villa with pool. The villa was beautifully presented and equipped - with lots of little things that make your stay more enjoyable - lots of glasses, crockery, poolside glasses, BBQ, poolhouse with WC & shower. Its really spacious, which is great for 6 adults sharing. There's books and games available also UK Sky TV. Its situated on a quiet street which is a 5 min walk to the centre of the village. We'd definitely recommend this villa to others and hope to return! Dunlop Family, Glasgow, Scotland
