Once we got there, it was fantastic.
The owners were wonderful. Incredibly nice and accommodating. Suggested things for us to do without being obtrusive. Lent us toys for the children to play with. Recommended an awesome babysitter who although she did not speak much English was wonderful with the children. I also have to mention the grounds which included not only a nice size pool with security cover but also beautiful landscaping befitting the setting, an olive tree grove, a nice terrace where we took all our meals, and a covered patio by the pool with lounge chairs and another dining area.
Kitchen was not well equipped in terms of cooking tools and utensils ie pots, pans, cutting board, knives, mixing bowls, etc. No problem with plates, bowls, glasses, eating utensils, though.
Many points of interest less than an hour away so that we could do a little sightseeing each day and still had plenty of time at the pool in the afternoon and to make dinner in the evening.

We thought the property was a great value. Everything was new, but it was built in the old style, with plaster, tiles, and big wooden beams. All the furnishings were very nicely appointed, with modern appliances, TVs, and comfortable furniture. The people who owned the villa were very nice and helpful, and everything was extremely clean and well cared for.
The outside was great, with a super heated pool and lovely patio. Even though the weather was quite cool at night, the pool cover and the heat kept it very pleasant to swim in. Very private, fenced, with olive trees and a nice garden. Also, all the bedrooms were pretty equal, with their own bathrooms, and great beds and modern showers, etc. You could very comfortably have 4 couples there without getting on top of each other.
The development where the house is located is not yet finished, so one sees some half-finished villas. However, our villa was still very private, and all the electric fencing gave one a good feeling of security. The security deposit was high, and they wouldn't take a credit card.
It was in an excellent location - close enough to the Autoroute to easily get to lots of places. Avignon, St. Remy, Arles, Aix, the Luberon were all in easy driving distance. We wished we could have stayed longer, as there were a few other places we would have liked to see.

The week in Provence was superb. The villa was grand in scale and in excellent condition.
The solitude and the privacy
Better to use a GPS than the written directions. The villa lacked important small items such as sufficient TP. The owners were not well experienced landlords. The requirement for a 1000 Euro security deposit in cash was a bit extreme.
The property is centrally located in Vaucluse, so no site is more than 75 minutes away, most are less than an hour's distance.
