The most beautiful house and garden,with a fantastic heated pool, of which I spent most my time. Brand new fabulous kitchen with everything you need. Great fun for all our family, teens and younger. They had so much space to run around, it was heaven for them. They played in pool, badminton on the grass, boules on the big drive, even soft ball on the massive patio. Loved going to all the different markets, it became a great family day out as there is something for everyone at the markets we went to and all were no further than half an hours drive. I loved it here and we would all love very much to come back next year.
Perfect property for a family holiday
This lovely old Provencal farmhouse has been updated by the owners and is a wonderful property for a large group, with its big communal rooms and spaces outside - and the enormous garden with a swimming pool. It was clean and well maintained, with a local family on hand for any assistance and lots of guidebooks on the area.
Chateaurenard is a nice town within walking distance, with lots of restaurants and all the shops you might need, and the house is midway between historic and buzzing Avignon and the stunning market town of St Remy. We went swimming in the river at the Pont Du Gard and to the beach near Marseilles, which is only an hour away. There was so much to do every day - and it was lovely place to return to.
