Paradise away from Home at Villa Le Pijoret (La Roque d'Antheron, France)

5 reviewed on June 29, 2016

My wife and I spent 3 wonderful nites at La Pijoret from 22-25 May 2016. From the time even before we arrived until we left, we were showered with an abundance of warmth and hospitality. Michelle and Wolfgang have a lovely home and a magnificent garden. It was such a pleasure to start our days having our breakfast surrounded by such a well-manicured garden and to return in the evening to a fireplace, good company and such soothing surroundings. The room was just lovely (we stayed in the butterfly room), and so too were the other rooms which were available. Each one unique in terms of theme but equally comfortable. Every little amenity one desired was made available, even lovely room and lines sprays. Thank you to Wolfgang and his lovely daughter Natalie for taking the trouble to cook us dinner one evening. It was stellar! Conversation flowed with as much ease as did wine from the many bottles we consumed there! We also am thankful for the many tips and recommendations in terms of how to spend our days in the region. Practical suggestions taking into consideration our interests and the limited time we had in the region. I would be a dream to one day soon be able to return with my children to enjoy the hospitality on offer. Going back would be like visiting family (and I mean the kind of family you look forward to seeing, if you know what I mean). Until we meet again, good health and happiness to you all. Moiz & Maryam

Best place in the world at Villa Le Pijoret (La Roque d'Antheron, France)

5 reviewed on May 30, 2016

All the words can’t to express the beauty of the villa. Every detail has a thought-out and creates an easy, relaxed atmosphere that leads to relaxation and peace, power recovery. A light breakfast in the charming garden or dinner by the fireplace, morning swim at the pool or sunset celebration in the garden, anything is possible. Any place, room or corner is designed with love and respect for nature and beauty. Villa is a typical reflection of Provence and if I could be a Peter Mayle such a place definitely would help me to write my new best seller about Provence. However, in spite of the fact that the villa is great, nothing can beat the greatest treasure - villa owners and their kindness, love what they provide their guests. While we lived in a villa we felt not as guests or even friends, but as family members. All the time we were asked whether we want something or need anything. Villa owners, who are a model of intelligence, every morning, accounted routes for us, where to go, what to see, get to know to see maximum of their land, which they are so proud. Villa hosts also have a phenomenal knowledge not only about the sightseeing, but the history as well. Many things have been built even without asking, for example, when we arrived at night very hungry, the owners made a romantic dinner in a few minutes, even if we didn’t ask it. Many nights we talked with no time limit and learned a lot about Provencal cuisine, which was made especially for us. My birthday morning was created with gifts, champagne, flowers and congratulations. When the owners got the information someone stole our documents during our trip to Marseille, a villa owners in the middle of the night greeted us with wine and support. Therefore, if you've ever plan to go to Provence you must definitely stay in a villa. Conversely, if you already have a reservation, in another place, cancel it; the villa is worth it, not only to change the plans, but to go to Provence immediately.

Vacanza di pasqua at Villa Valbelle (Aix en Provence, France)

4.4 reviewed on April 01, 2016

Siamo una coppia, abbiamo soggiornato tre notti utilizzando lo studio, molto confortevole ed attrezzato anche se non abbiamo avuto necessità di usare la cucina. Cathy è un'ottima padrona di casa, la colazione, servita in una struttura in giardino, è ottima ed abbondante, con il tocco in piu delle marmellate fatte in casa. La posizione e ottima, a tre minuti dall'autostrada e a tre minuti dalla città. Grazie ai consigli di Cathy abbiamo visitato Aix, Arles e Marsiglia in modo molto soddisfacente. Consigliato.

3 nuits à La Gracette at La Gracette (Aix en Provence-Les Milles, France)

3.0 reviewed on February 26, 2016

J'ai apprécié l'accueil de mes hôtes, le calme de l'environnement au charme chaleureusement désuet. Le morceau de guitare classique, "volé" pendant mon repas dans la petite cuisine mise à ma disposition, était un régal pour mes oreilles. J'espère revenir au moment où le jardin sera épanoui pour profiter des gargouillis de la fontaine séculaire.

Enchanting, romantic, and simply, perfect... at Villa Le Pijoret (La Roque d'Antheron, France)

5 reviewed on October 21, 2015

I stumbled across the beautiful Villa Le Pijoret & it's delightful hosts by accident, & I am so pleased I did. I was in pursuit of a happy ending to my fairy tale, hoping to be reunited with the man I loved, who had flown to France the previous week. (I’m a self-confessed romantic!) I realised upon my arrival that I had picked an absolute treasure of a place & discovered the perfect location. On arriving at the villa I was greeted with kindness & hospitality in abundance. Although I hadn’t visited before, the home felt so familiar & I settled in straight away. On the first night I sat outside drinking wonderful French wine, eating delicious French cheese & Michele’s homemade soup, by the huge outdoor fireplace, surrounded by candles, in their lovely garden. Michele & Wolfgang both made me feel so at ease, & I was enchanted by them & their wonderful home. The style & décor of the home itself, is a reflection of the wonderful personalities of Michele & Wolfgang, with each room decorated with accessories, paintings, & ornaments from all over the world. It was clear to see that years & years of love & care had been invested into their home; every corner of the house & the garden was well thought out. They couldn’t have been more helpful in recommending local places to visit & assisting us with directions. Villa Le Pijoret is set in a quaint, typically French little village & in a perfect location for exploring the South of France. We visited in the summer but the house would also be perfect for a holiday at any time of the year as it is within a short distance of the beach, the countryside, mountains & an array of tourist attractions & beautiful towns. It goes without saying that the room & house was spotlessly clean, the food was delicious, the location perfect; &, the hosts could not have been more hospitable. If you choose to stay here, you will fall in love with the charm of Villa Le Pijoret, just like I did, & you will definitely wish to return.

Excellent accueil at Chez Mamouska (Cassis, France)

4.6 reviewed on September 24, 2015

Nous avons passé 4 mérveilleux jours chez Mamouska. Depuis le début, Mme Vallet a été très gentille et charmante. Elle est même nous venue chercher à la gare et elle a resté disponible tout le temps (elle nous a offert une aide énorme avec une "petite" urgence medicale). La chambre était très bien, propre et confortable avec une terrasse et vue sur un beau jardin. Tout s'est très bien passé et nous sommes très contente de notre visite. Et il ne faut absolument pas rater le pétit-dejeuner ! De délicieux croissants et pain à la confiture !

5 reviewed on August 30, 2015

Siamo appena tornati da una settimana di vacanza in Provenza. Abbiamo soggiornato in questo bed and breakfast davvero incantevole, dove si respira un'aria di tranquillità, freschezza e pulizia. La casa è in perfetto stile provenzale, curata con grande gusto in ogni suo particolare, ed abbiamo apprezzato anche rilassarci nel bel giardino con piscina. Nicole e Gerard sono una coppia davvero adorabile e speciale, si sono prodigati in ogni modo per metterci a nostro agio e per darci preziosi consigli sugli itinerari ed i ristoranti. Magnifiche le loro colazioni fatte con passione ed amore. Sicuramente torneremo. Benedetta e Maurizio

5 mérveilleux jours passé en août 2015 at Chez Mamouska (Cassis, France)

3.4 reviewed on August 27, 2015

Nous avons passés des jours agréables dans la maison de chez mamouska. Une atmosphère familiale et confiante et un acceuil chaleureux vous attends ainsi qu'une chambre propre et spacieuse (la plus grande des quatres). La maison est située très proche du centre de Cassis et de la mer. Un grand avantage est la place de parc privée et gratuite. Comme il s'agit d'une maison privée, il n'y a pas une salle de bain par chambre. Pour nous ce n'ètait pas un problème. Madame V. est une personne très sympathique, aimable qui vous donne volontièrement des conseils pour vos visites dans la région.

Wunderschöner Sommerurlaub in der Provence at Chambres d' Hôtes ou séjours à thèmes: (Les Pennes Mirabeau, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur)

5 reviewed on August 23, 2015

Wir haben mit unserer dreijährigen Tochter bei Nicole und Gérard 5 wunderschöne und entspannte Tage verbracht. Die Beiden verstanden es, uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abzulesen und versorgten uns mit wertvollen Tipps zur Erkundung der Umgebung. Nicht zu vergessen das exzellente Frühstück, jeden Tag eine neue Überraschung in Form von Obstsalat, Kuchen, Madeleines und vielen anderen Leckereien. Alles selbst gemacht versteht sich. Unsere Tochter hat im Swimmingpool ihre ersten Schwimmzüge gemacht, dank der netten Unterstützung von Nicole und Gerard, die uns ein kleines Boot und Schwimmflügel zur Verfügung stellten. Außerdem durfte sie sich in unserem Zimmer über einen großen Schrank mit Spielsachen freuen. Die Zimmer sind im provencalischen Stil liebevoll dekoriert und in jedem Detail spiegelt sich die Leidenschaft der Gastgeberin für schönes Ambiente und antike, selbst restaurierte Möbel wieder. Kurz und gut, wir hatten einen tollen Sommerurlaub und fühlten uns - wie Gott in Frankreich. Stephanie, Fabian und Emilia

Perfect! at Mas de la Calade (Saint Zacharie, France)

5 reviewed on July 15, 2015

My family has stayed there twice and each time has been magical. Philippe and Nicole are wonderful and gracious hosts. They go out of their way to make us comfortable and our stay enjoyable. We made day trips to nearby Aix, Cassis and other destinations and have always come back for the gourmet dinner. Each evening, Philippe makes a three course dinner with local and organic ingredients from his garden as well as nearby sources. The food, company and conversation at dinner with the hosts as well as other guests are always the highlights of our stay there. We would go back several times a year if we could. -Woo from NJ, USA.
