Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The villa really is incredible. The owners have thought of everything and the facilities are excellent. The location is really peaceful but there are plenty of sights to see within reasonable driving distance. Micky (owner) is so friendly and helpful and Judith, who organises the bookings, is extremely efficient, responsive and always happy to help with any queries. We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this property.

Amazing villa but...

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this villa in late August 2016. Everything is indeed fantastic. However, I had specifically asked if there was air-con to all rooms as at this time of year I feel it is a necessity. There is not air-con to all rooms. There is "under floor cooling" which is not air-con and is absolutely nowhere near as effective. If you are visiting here any cooler time of year I would think this would be fine but for us it was not.

Despite this there are so many amazing things about this villa, it's location is beautiful, the pool area is fantastic, kitchen awesome if you like cooking as we do. My wife personally loved the hot tub with side viewing panel and full length mirrors in all the showers. The kids loved the games room and cinema.

We took the advice from Judith and went to the market in Lorgues and the Lac St-Croix, both were amazing. Tip: if you're going to the Lac take some aqua shoes as it's pretty painful getting in the water. Amazing views on the drive there.

Excellent Holiday Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Our family holiday with two children and a baby was a great success. The accommodation was excellent and of a very high

standard. Very spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet location and the house was equipped to a very high standard. Madam Hely, the owner was very welcoming and she and her son explained in great detail the working of the house. Of particular interest was the Cinema and Games Room. The pool was enjoyed by everyone. The external eating arrangements worked very well for us in the evening. Judith who handled our booking was very efficient and could not have been more helpful.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

5 adults stayed in this amazing property , and were extremely happy with it. It's very modern, with terrific beds, lounges, well equipped kitchen etc. We loved the heated pool, the outdoor BBQ area, and the spectacular games room, which would suit a horde of teenagers. The proximity to all sites was incredible, The house is in a very quiet location. This house has everything needed to make a holiday in Provence perfect.

Fantastically appointed luxurious and spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas, so were looking for somewhere that would have plenty of indoor space for Christmas dinner - so many villas have lots of outdoor space but not much inside. This was perfect! We also brought some of the more esoteric cooking essentials for Christmas - like mince pie tins; we needn't have bothered - the kitchen has everything you could possibly want if you like to cook at home. And if you don't, there are lots of restaurants to suit all budgets in Lorgues, which is only 10 minutes away. An enormous Hypermarket with everything you could possibly need is also only 10 minutes away, in the opposite direction. There's not much in the village of Taradeau itself, beyond a recently expanded (and very good) baker, and the wine co-op, but given how close everything else is that really didn't matter. You would not want to walk into the village though - the road is relatively narrow with no pavement. However there are nice quiet circular walks from right outside the villa.

As others have mentioned, Micky the owner is extremely hospitable and helpful, and had gone to great lengths to prepare the house for us. We brought an inflatable Christmas tree (!) with us, but again there was no need - she had set up not one but two trees for us, with lights and decorations, and generally made it feel very Christmassy. We had a small problem with the wifi initially (potential disaster for the teenagers), but Phillipe-Michel came and rectified it within 30 minutes.

It being winter, we made full use of the cinema, which is a great facility. The pool table was well used as well, as was the beer pump :-). It was great to have so much space inside, so we were not on top of each other, and in Summer it would be just fantastic with all the outdoor space as well. I hope that we will be able to return again at a warmer time of year to make full use of the pool and outdoor cooking facilities.

A wonderful villa overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (ages 18 to 80), and hope to return. Thank you to Micky and her family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much on behalf of Micky and her family for your great review. It is true that this villa is superb for a winter get-away having so much indoor space to enjoy on cold evenings after enjoying Provençal winter sunshine during the day. We would love to welcome you back to experience the villa in the summer when it offers a completely different experience. And a very happy and healthy 2016. Judith

Luxurious and very well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is private, spacious, contemporary, and very well equipped. It sports excellent recreational facilities, and everything is spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained. The presentation is first class. The owners, who live locally, are delightful, and their son speaks excellent English! They could not have done more to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our visit. Highly recommended!
