What Past Guests Are Saying
Peter 's review of Villa de Banon
Perfect for handling a large group. Staff were superb. The staff provides all the cooking and service and this is included in the price; we were only responsible for the cost of groceries and drinks!
Nice variety for the varying tastes of members of our group. Great longer distance and more challenging routes for serious cyclists.
Jeep's review of Villa de Banon
We have taken many high end trips, but this was the best one we have had so far. A. Over the top. Wonderful. I don't have enough superlatives.
Very comfortable set up for a family. The bedrooms are many and large and comfortable. The food served outside, inside and by the pool was very relaxed. The pool was over the top. The whole place is well kept up and modern. We had internet access, ping pong, tennis, fous ball, petanque. We kept 9 children and 13 adults delightedly amused all week. The staff was very friendly, helpful, on the spot. We really liked Andre and Jean-Jacques, Lina, Josie-Anne and Chantal. The took great care of us.
The surrounding Provencal area is magical. Great mountain biking and hiking. Easy access to all of the stunning Luberon region.
Tania's review of Villa de Banon
Excellent. Gorgeous property and grounds. Wonderful swimming pool, tennis courts. Lots of privacy for a smaller group like ours.
The key for us was the fantastic staff--the caretakers, Jean Jacques and Andree, the cook, Lina, and the two housekeepers. The food was fabulous and the service unflaggingly good-natured and attentive. They made our stay a true vacation. Between the pool, the tennis court, the bikes, the ping-pong table and the wi-fi, the 7 tween-teens in our group were always busy when at the property.
Our thoughts are really constructive suggestions. They should have bike helmets of appropriate sizes to correspond to the 6 bikes. They should be clear in the property description that soap, shampoo and hairdryers are not provided in the bathrooms so that guests come prepared. It would also be very helpful to have at least 2 converters from U.S. to French current to run appliances.
Access to active sporting adventures and to beautiful scenery and scenic-historic towns.
Ofelina's review of Villa de Banon
I brought my children and grandchildren and everyone had a wonderful time at this special villa.
It was very elegant, which we all enjoyed.
Hammond's review of Villa de Banon
Our stay would not have been so perfect if it had not been for the care and kindness of the managing couple. They were superb and we left in tears.
The amazing way in which it had been refurbished. Not one detail had been missed. We do not think we have ever seen such attention to detail nor the sympathetic way in which the restoration had been carried out.
The villages and local markets, the wonderful cheeses, fruit, meat and wine.
Helga's review of Villa de Banon
I have rented quite a few properties in France and Italy now, and some of my same guests were at this villa, too. We all agreed by far is the best. Must publish better images... it is truly a great property and you cannot tell by the website pictures.
Staff was exceptional, quality of property and pristine conditions of everything in the property. The villa and its staff were simply exceptional. All dinners were beautifully done and presented. The service just fantastic and needless to say the house is amazing.
Dealing with the issues related to using the washer-drier. But at the end it was all sorted out.
Beautiful scenery, lavender fields, great to enjoy such a nice tennis court in the property and also walks and bike rides. Bikes were provided by the property, so it was nice to have them readily available.
