Very Good

“Lovely atmosphere”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2010

We had 2 weeks in the Truffle Gite and although the weather outside was not very clement, inside we were very warm and comfortable. Hosts Maggie & Andrew are very accommadating and Honey is a joy to take for a walk. The scenery around the area is breathtaking and we enjoyed many trips out. As we drove down from UK, we had our own transport and strongly recommend having your own car to enable you to enjoy the countryside and visit the many interesting villages and towns around.

Response from the owner Many thanks Jane for your review. I look forward to seeing you again at Chamaret. Regards Andrew Payne

“surprising stay in a charming Bastide”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2010

We discovered a beautiful place, a charming gite with a beautiful rose garden, and the most important, Andrew and Maggi, the hosts, did everything to make us feel home, really a perfect combination of privacy and care.

Response from the owner Many thanks Ria & Aad for your review. We hope to see you at the Bastide again. Regards Andrew & Maggi Payne

“We will be back!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2010

A beautiful, well-equipped property, ideal for a large family or families. It has a lovely pool and plenty of shady areas to relax in. The Bastide is furnished to a high standard, with elegant bedrooms, a pleasant living room and a kitchen which makes preparing meals part of the holiday experience. Andrew and Maggie are friendly and helpful but never intrusive. Chamaret only has a bakery but there are a number of supermarkets within a short drive. Grignan, a short drive away, is a delightful small town with an attractive castle and a number of restaurants.

Response from the owner Dear Judy, Many thanks for your splendid review. Hope to see you at the Bastide in 2011. Regards Andrew

“An upgraded home re-located to fabulous surroundings.”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2010

We and the family all needed a break. Having visited the previous year we decided to ask about vacancies and found a suitable vacancy in the Truffle Gite. The furnishings and fittings were excellent with the kitchen facilities better than those at home. My wife and I had the "Blue Room" with its window overlooking the courtyard, orchard and main drive. Our daughter and her youngest son had the main bedroom and her teenage son had the put-up bed in the lounge. Everything was immaculate (even the outside lawn, barbecue and pool). Fresh vegetables were often available from the garden, but the short walk into the village was no problem and the surprisingly well stocked supermarket and wonderful bakery satisfied most of our food needs. The 15 minute drive to the hypermarket more than provided the rest. A visit to Grignan is a must and the restaurant recommended by the Paynes was very special - we celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here (so was the cafe at the foot of the village). The local pottery is certainly worth a visit. Two things that stood out for us were the historical sites so close (Arles, Avignon and our favourite, Vaison la Romaine) and the Chateauneuf and Cote de Rhone wine areas on the doorstep. The locals are all very friendly and helpful. In this respect, Mr & Mrs Payne stand out. It would be impossible not to have an outstanding holiday at the Bastide des Launes.

Response from the owner Many thanks Gordon for your review. Regards Andrew & Maggi

“A wonderful relaxing holiday in an idillic location”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2010

The Bastide des Launes was perfect for my partner and I. For us it was everything we could want for a wonderful stay. Our hosts were kind and helpful and provided us with everyting we needed. We stayed in the Truffle gite and it was enchanting, well catered for and clean. We especially appreciated the information pack and a supply of Dvds - 'A Good Year 'is a must when holidaying in Provence. The location of the property was ideal for our holiday. It is very easy to get to Orange and avignon, as well as the pretty town of Vaison la Romaine, or travel south to the popular villages of Roussillon and Gordes. The local villages around the property are well worth visiting and the highlight is definetly Grignan, wonderful to explore, eat in and especially take photographs in. Even if you venture only to Grignon and back - borrowing the bikes and cycling there is recommended! - The Bastide des Launes is a perfect base for an idillic holiday and you will certainly want to return there. We can't wait to go back to the Truffle gite and the warm welcome we received, to laze in the sunshine, drink pastis, sample the delights of french food and relax.

Response from the owner Many thanks Helen for your lovely review. Hope to see you back at the Bastide soon. Regards Andrew

“Peaceful and relaxing stay”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2010

We have enjoyed 2 memorable holidays at Bastide des Launes. The accommodation is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The pool area is perfect with lovely views. A stroll away is the pretty village of Chamaret with its own bakery. Approximately 4 miles away is the larger village of Grignon with a very good choice of restaurants. Andrew and Maggie, the English owners are friendly and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. We felt relaxed the minute we arrived and are looking forward to returning in late august.

Response from the owner Thanks Jill for your review. Look forward to seeing you again in August. Regards Andrew

“Good accomodation in a fantastic setting”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2010

We had a week staying in the 2 bedroom gite and found it comfortable and well-equipped.The outdoor areas and the pool were delightful, and the local villages are charming.It was a good base for going further afield, with avignon and Orange within easy reach. Andrew, our host, was very helpful and a mine of information about local wines, which was very handy.

Response from the owner Many thanks Candida for your review. Hope to see you again in Provence. Regards Andew

Tranquillity right in the heart of Provence with the world’s best wines on your doorstep. Spacious well appointed accommodation combined with the beauty of the pre-Alps and a most attentive host with made this a fantastic holiday. Can't wait to get back!

“A comfortable and charming piece of France”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2010

Ideally located for day trips and situated within an easy walk to the local village. Bastide des Launes has everything needed for a relaxing holiday. The bedrooms are large and comfortable and the huge kitchen / dining room the focal point. Andrew was staying on site and his hospitality was friendly and generous. A holiday we will long remember.

Response from the owner Many thanks Rob for your review it is much appreciated. Andrew Payne

“Best place we have ever stayed because is friendly & relaxing”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2010

Andrew has created a beautiful holiday house with all amenities. Our group of 10 booked the whole house and it became our home away from home for one week. It is located close to the village and many interesting day trips were within a short distance. Andrew was the perfect host.

Response from the owner Many thanks Warren & Bev for such a splendid review. Hope to see you again in Provence. Regards Andrew Payne
