it was terrific--once we found the place. Abdou, the caretaker, couldn't have been nicer. It was necessary to speak French, which several of us did, and he was very helpful. Twice he brought us a dessert tarte he had made himself. He also went with us the first night to find some food, because it was late before most people arrived. And the property itself is breathtaking.
The grounds were magnificent, and very well cared-for. The kitchen had everything we needed, since we cooked each night for 11. The house itself was very luxurious and comfortable.
The signage is missing, so it was hard to find.
The local French villages were wonderful for the fresh produce and for the history. St. Remy, Les Baux and Avignon seemed to be the favourites.
