“There's a Reason It Consistently Gets 5 Stars”
. . . and the reason is William. My wife and I stayed in L'Orangerie and my son and daughter-in-law stayed in one of the B&B rooms so we'd both have some privacy and an extra bathroom. Worked out wonderfully well until, unfortunately, we got word that my father-in-law passed away, so we had to cut the visit a bit short. William was very kind when we got the news, offering to help in any way he could. We hope to be able to return one day and fully enjoy this very lovely place and William's very special brand of hospitality.
“Beautiful villa, superb hospitality and a wonderful location.”
We had a wonderful time staying at L'Orangerie for our honeymoon. It started with William picking us up at the train station at Avignon and bringing us to the villa. A cheese plate and a bottle of wine were waiting for us, as well as a lovely dinner for our first night. This was just the beginning of our experience of unparalleled hospitality from William and his family (for more on that, see further below). The villa itself is lovely and cosy, with a private terrace and a little loft for children to sleep in. We made ourselves lunch and dinner most days - the kitchen is well supplied with pretty much anything you might need. There is a shared swimming pool which is large enough to get some exercise and surrounded by beautiful gardens - we often had the pool area to ourselves and enjoyed swimming, lounging around, drinking champagne and doing yoga by the pool (not in that order!). The villa is a quick ten minute walk into the centre of town, and we opted not to rent a car since we were there for only four nights and wanted to relax and not worry about driving. That worked out very well. We went on a spectacular wine tour one day, spent another day poking around the market and exploring the town and the sights around town (Roman ruins, Van Gough's old "residence" in an asylum) and even took a day trip to Les Beaux, a spectacular little town nestled in the mountains, one day. We spent our last day exploring Avignon before our train left. The biggest difference between L'Orangerie and the other places we have rented is the hospitality.We were delivered fresh pastries each morning, provided with some "basics" in the pantry and fridge, assisted with any day trips we wanted to make, and William even held our luggage for us while we explored Avignon on the last day. We'll definitely be back - our only regret is that we weren't able to be there for a full week. Next time, we will certainly spend at least a week there!
Response from the owner My PROVENCE PARADISE Team and I were proud that you chose L'Orangerie as your honeymoon venue! Very proud! You will be welcome back here anytime! I am glad that our "discreet presence" policy was just what you needed for a restful time after all of the preparations for your wedding. Especially proud, too, that one of our (very) seasoned "veterans" recommended us to both of you! We wish you a wonderful life together. You're already off to a great start!
“Vacation at l'Orangerie at Provence Paradise”
It was our first experience of booking villa in France and we had some concerns since we do not speak French. We did not know how great is the owner, William! The level of hospitality was outstanding - from warm croissants in the mornings and detailed agenda what to do for every day during the two weeks stay to full day availibility for help if any personal problem. The real experience was the visit to the goats farm and cheese tasting. The amenities were charming comfortable and clean with secure personal garden. You can fully trust pictures and descriptions at the Provence Paradise website. I have already recommended Provence Paradise to my friends and can tell that this is really great place to stay for vacations in Provence.
Response from the owner Thanks, Yulia! We also enjoyed very much your visit and your family helped to add to our "local repertoire" the goat farm visit, which was spectacular. Please do tell your friends about us and plan to come back as a family, too.
We feel incredibly lucky to have had the pleasure of staying here at L'Orangerie. You have been like a favorite uncle, except with an extra cottage in the best little village in Provence. We will miss waking up to the sound of you knocking on the metal outside (staring at the buttery, flakey crumbs on the plate in front of me, I think that I miss that already!) With your practical advice on how to see the best of the area, we've had an absolutely fantastic time. Thanks for everything. We hope to return soon. P.S. Don't miss Carrières de Lumière at Les Baux and La Fromagerie des alpilles. Nothing compares!
“A little bit of Heaven on Earth”
What a wonderful stay we had in the L'Orangerie at Provence Paradise. William could not have been more helpful, and the dinner upon arrival, the warm chocolate croissants each morning, and the 30th anniversary cake and champagne were above and beyond what we could have ever anticipated. The walk to town is short, and the town is just fabulous. Unfortunately, when we were there, the pool was a tad cold for the outside temp, but the jacuzzi was a great treat after a long day of touring. L'Orangerie is just beautiful, and so comfy, we couldn't have been more pleased. You will absolutely love it here, we did!
Response from the owner Once again, a very happy and healthy 30th wedding anniversary to the two of you! Glad you found our "honey-moon cottage" appropriate for the occasion! You were great guests.... please come again and/or send us other nice folks just like you!
“The perfect family holiday destination”
We were completely overwhelmed by the hospitality shown to us by William and the team. From the home cooked meals on arrival (including a stock of wine and breakfast goods) to the daily pastries, and the font of information about what to see and how to do it as easily as possible, no trouble was too great. L'Orangerie was perfect for our family of 4 and the children (7 & 9) loved the loft, the beautiful gardens to explore and the large pool for cooling off on a hot day. St Remy is positioned to easily access a wide range of activities, highlights were Les Baux, kayaking, the various markets and the Pont du Gard. Our stay at L'Orangerie was the highlight of our entire trip (for parents and children) and the one place we have promised we must return to. Consider yourself very lucky to have stumbled upon this hidden gem.
“A gem in St. Remy”
A wonderful place, William makes you feel welcome and safe from the minute you arrive (to a lovely dinner) until you leave. Warm croissants at the door in the morning and walking distance to the restaurants in St. Remy. Even a washer and dryer which anyone who has travelled with one suitcase knows is worth gold. Place was extremely well equipped, even books, tour guides and maps left from previous visitors. A real find.
Response from the owner Carla and Russel, many thanks for taking the time to post your Guests' Comments. I like your use of the words "welcome and safe..." Those are high priorities in our innkeeping efforts... something which makes us stand out from the rest. We are "descreetly present." Far from intrusive, but there in a flash, if you need us.
“This is the place that I want to be back!”
Lots of light, beauty, style, comfort, fresh croissants and french retro music - what could be better))
Our second visit to Provence Paradise, and even more wonderful than the first time. William and staff are charming, helpful, accommodating, and delightful. Our "houselet" was perfect, all the amenities we could ask for - right down to olive oil, salt/pepper, and wine! The gardens, the pool, and the town of St Remy de Provence are unmatched. We would have stayed longer if we'd had time (and if it hadn't been booked already), and we will be back soon! Thank you William.
Response from the owner Sarah and Larry, thanks for your repeat visit and for bringing the scottish branch of the family along with you. We enjoyed having all of you and look forward to seeing you here again at PROVENCE PARADISE!
This place is truely paradise. I have stayed there twice now and have 2 weeks booked to go back the summer of 2013. I have no doubt that it will not stop there. I have never, I say never, had an experience like this and I have done a lot of traveling and stayed a t a lot of Vrbo's. From the time you arrive you will want for nothing. The grounds are perfectly manicured, the rooms and apartments flawlessly decorated and filled with quality antiques and posh furniture. When you arrive the refrigerator will hold a very tasty evening meal complete with dessert as well as a bottle of white wine perfectly chilled. A red win lover? Not to worry, its on the fully set table complete with provancal eatery and linen. You wonder am I Brad Pitt because this sort of place is usually not available for the money us mortals can afford. I really don't understand how William the owner is able to offer this place at such a value. In fact it is such a gem that I find I want to preserve it. I walk around like an owner . I am interested in maintaining the experience. As to the owner, William, He is american but has lived in France for > 20 yrs. He is fluent in French and can get you into the best resturants and guide you to the most magnificent sites( places not even in the guidebooks). William only has one fault and it his love for rose wines. You should invite him over, this generally leads to lively conversation and a very memorable evening. But there is one warning... If you do not like life, wine, good food or French culture no need to apply...
Response from the owner Thanks for all those kind words. Just keep coming to see us! The experience is mutually very satisfying. We like to do what we do... and are very happy when folks like you are so satisfied.
