“Janet's review of Calabrun”
Absolutely fantastic! We were made to feel very welcome with basics already in the fridge and cabinets such as butter, bread, jam, olive oil, milk, and coffee. A beautiful villa and surroundings. Probably the fantastic view and beautiful gardens full of blooming lavender and other flowers. Having a beautiful pool and a covered patio for dinners were also a big plus! Also very nice to have access to a washer and dryer. They also supplied hair dryers and fans in the bedrooms, though the nights were comfortable and their were NO mosquitoes. The couple that showed us around the property did not speak any English and we did not speak French! It would have been helpful to have instructions for basic things such as how to operate their oven, other appliances, where to take the trash and recycling, etc written down in English. We did manage for the most part. Excellent spot for day trips! We not only went into St. Remy en Provence 5 minutes away, but to Avignon, Pont du Gard, Les Baux-de-Provence, L' Isle sur la Sorgue, Gordes, Roussillon, and Les Baux-de-Provence!
“Charles's review of Calabrun”
The house is beautiful and charming the bright yellow colors of the well-equipped kitchen, the marvelous covered outdoor patio, and the grand vistas of the Alpilles, to say nothing of the fabulous swimming pool, combined to make it a marvelous experience. The owners are gracious hosts who were kind enough to equip us with the first-night essentials including wine upon our arrival. We would gladly return, although we would probably choose another month other than August, very fine weather notwithstanding, due to the crowds in the towns -- it seemed half of Paris was in Provence this year. Provence is great fun - my first time there, even though I have spent substantial time in France and very beautiful. I don't think the photos on your site convey the beauty of the scenery. The kitchen, the outdoor patio, the wonderful views, the swimming pool. The beds are not the most comfortable in the world, but my experience tells me that comfy USA-style king-queen beds are not as much of a must-have item in many EU countries. My wife and I did just fine with the double bed. You may want to check with the owners re the bicycles, because we did not see them when we were there.
“Cara's review of Calabrun”
The villa, the pool and the landscaping were all beautiful. The house was extremely well equipped, particularly the kitchen and pool amenities. We had a fabulous time. It is maintained beautifully inside and out. The owners were very friendly and provided lots of wonderful home-grown fruits, tomatoes, jam, olive oil, as well as wine and breakfast items. Can't think of a single thing. St. Remy is a charming town, and within very easy driving distance. There are multiple wonderful places to visit - made it easy to relax at the pool and spend half a day exploring nearby towns.
“Frederick's review of Calabrun”
My wife and I were very happy with our hosts and felt the house and location were fabulous. it was like living in the Garden of Eden with the most luscious figs, almond trees and pomegranates. The view and the traditional construction of the home certainly enhanced our experience. The view and the traditional construction of the home. The master bed and the pillows. The bed had a plastic cover on the mattress and was hard. The pillows were thin and hard. The road access was difficult and would be potentially non accessible for anyone driving a sports car. St Remy is well located for sight seeing with many interesting areas within a 30 - 40 minute drive. The town itself was large enough to offer many shopping opportunities and restaurants.
“William's review of Calabrun”
The pool, and the outdoor dining area.
“Rebecca's review of Calabrun”
Calabrun was a wonderful place, and it really is a piece of paradise. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. It was lovely to arrive to homemade apricot jam, olive oil from Bernard's olives, and other lovely goodies. It was a relaxing holiday, and we just wish that we were still there! Hopefully we will be back very soon. The peace and quiet along with the French aspect - the whole Provence experience. It was exactly what we were looking forward to. The beds were uncomfortable. The views, the proximity to other areas of France, and the vast array of things to do.
“Sharon's review of Calabrun”
We had a fabulous time. The villa worked out well for the four of us. . The serene location. Nothing
“Coila's review of Calabrun”
We very much enjoyed our stay at Calabrun. The villa itself is beautiful. Very quiet and set quite a bit back from the road with fantastic views of the valley and mountains. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would recommend it. The location is also perfect for any day trips to the surrounding towns and countryside. The house is well appointed...good kitchen, and plenty of towels. The dryer wasn't working when we were there, but they provided a drying rack which served quite well. One thing we noticed not just at this villa, but in other places in Europe during our vacation is the beds are a bit smaller and shorter than we Americans are used to especially my 6'3" husband. Also, we had been warned about the possibility of bugs, which we interpreted as possible mosquitoes. There are no mosquitoes, but instead we had houseflies and horseflies. There being no screens in the windows of most European villas the houseflies were difficult to keep out. The horseflies were mostly bothersome around the pool area. This was a bit of an irritant, but not enough to keep us from using the pool.
“Elizabeth's review of Calabrun”
Calabrun was wonderful! Youcef the chef was amazing and I highly recommend him for anyone visiting the area. Thanks for all your help planning this trip.
“Barbara's review of Calabrun”
We were delighted with our pick. We also thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Henri Milan at his winery, Domain Milan, very close by in the area. He was charming and the wine was excellent. We loved its location outside of town and the beautiful view of Les Alpilles and the beautiful landscaping of the property itself. We also loved the clear view of the stars at night that is only possible away from the city. Pool area and pool was very nice. Would have liked to be able to have a short walk to town, but wouldn't give up the view for it! Downstairs bed is somewhat more comfortable than upstairs bed. We loved the cherry trees and olive trees and lavender on the property, and the typical cypress behind the house.
