Ferme du Platane - The Perfect Holiday in France

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family at the Cobb's beautiful farmhouse in August of 2015. It is not the first time we have been and it was easy persuading my 3 children, their partners and their children to visit for a 2nd time.

It is the most enchanting house, a perfect blend of the best of English and French taste situated in a wonderfully quiet location, near enough to the Autooute du Sud and conveniently located near to the seemingly endless number of delightful villages which are scattered over the local countryside. Many of these hold weekly markets which are such a pleasure to visit. There are an endless number of unspoilt and beautiful places and towns to visit in the surrounding area. Avignon, Vaison la Romaine, Grignon and Seguret are unmissable treats.

The house itself is most appealing and very well appointed with accommodation for 8 in the cottage and a stunning studio for 2 in an annex next to the main house where Mike & Glyn Cobb themselves live. They are charming and perfect hosts who go to infinite trouble to ensure that everyone has a perfect holiday. There is a pretty olive grove and sweet smelling field of lavender next to the house but perhaps pride of place goes to the separately enclosed swimming pool which is large enough for both strong swimmers and small children to thoroughly enjoy.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the house to potential holidaymakers. Anyone who loves France cannot fail to be overcome by the magnetic charm and enchantment that the property exudes. We shall definitely be back.

places of interest include Avignon (50 mins) orange (30 mins) mountains (40 mins) coast (1 hour 30) local wine villages (e. G. Chateauneuf du pape, Beaume de Venise etc) (30 mins).

Further Details:

The area is famed for its wine-making ... wine caves are to be found in dozens of local villages and towns, all within easy reach. Historically the Roman influence abounds from the Pont du Gard, to the amphitheatre at Orange to the incredibly restored Roman town at nearby Vaison-la-Romaine. Within 5 minutes drive are 2 villages with boulangeries, and small supermarkets. Every day there is a street market in one nearby village. Main supermarkets (LeClerk / Intermarche) can be found with 15/20 minutes drive. There are at least 10 excellent restaurants within 15 minutes drive.
