"Pretty, perfect"

We spent a week in this cottage/apartment, and we couldn't have been happier. The owners arranged everything perfectly, from the booking process to the information regarding arrival/location, and… More

It is a pleasure to read this feedback and experience the spontanity of the act of wishing to share your experience. We understood that you had found our place through Tripadvisor, were pleased to notice that the previous feedbacks gave you relevant information and you therefore wished to pass the baton. This is also the way we ourselves do when travelling. Word of mouth has become an important tool and is mostly reliable.
Hope that you yourself find your way back again to us.

"Lovely host, perfect location"

Auli and Jean-Paul are very helpful , friendly and speak many languages, also mine, finnish.
The cottage is well equipped and the garden is beautiful.
The location is very good to explore the region of Vauclause.

In your feedback you underline our linguistic skills. In fact originally these wore elements together with the familiarity with our region, traditions and activities, that encouraged us to develop our holidayletting. We wish to help others in lowering barriers to come and enjoy Provence, not just only offer a place to stay.
It is our pleasure that you appreciated your visit.

"Like coming home"

We stayed at Auli and Jean-Paul's apartment in June 2013. We received good driving instructions and good tips for planning our holiday in Provence well in advance. When we arrived late in the evening, our hosts had stocked our fridge with fresh bread, cheese and other supper and breakfast essentials, which was especially nice after a long drive.
The apartment was just the right size for two people and the private garden was beautiful. The hosts' two little dogs were friendly and super cute.
The location of La Roubine is ideal for people who like to discover the treasures of Provence independently.

Thank you for your quoting. We were really happy to have you as guests in our holidayletting and pleased to hear that you have good memories of your stay.
Warm regards
Jean-Paul, Auli and Bonita

"Sehr angenehme Unterkunft für das Liebespaar :-)"

Die Fotos entsprechen genau der Realität: Geschmackvoll und durchdachtes Ferienhäuschen mit Sinn für Details, klein aber fein. Wir hatten nichts auszusetzen an "la Roubine", besonders das… More

Es freut uns dass Sie Provence und besonderes unsere Gebiet in Vaucluse als Reiseziehl ausgewahlt hatten. Dazu ist es besonderes wichtig dass Sie hier zufrieden waren uns gute Erinnerungen behalten.
Wir waren ganz froh Ihnen kennenzulernen.

"Good accommodation with lovely garden and our host could not have been more helpful"

The cottage was compact but perfectly adequate for two, in immaculate condition and very clean. It had all the equipment needed, and Jean Paul had supplied more than enough food and drink to see us through the weekend. Over the years we had many self catering holidays throughout Europe but this has been our favourite as Jean Paul was the perfect host - very friendly and hospitable. He really couldn't have done more for us ( took us on a picnic in the mountains, to the village festival and even made us dinner one evening when we hadn't been able to get to the supermarket). The property is on the edge of the village of Velleron which has 2 cafes, a small supermarket and a great vegetable market. This is a wonderful area for cycling and walking; the bike shop in nearby Isle sur la Sorgue will deliver to the cottage.

We are really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and had a relaxing and interesting vacation.

We were really happy to have you as our guests. We had such lovely discussions and good laughs. This kind of exchange is for us like the cream on top of the cake making life pleasant and encouraging us to further develop the offering.

We do our best to improve our services continously and try to be open to honest feedback enabling us to develop our services. We wish to offer our guests an unforgetable experience of a relaxing vacation in an environment that offers pleasure to all senses.

Warm regards
Jean-Paul and Auli Guilland

"Perfect cottage, perfect location, lovely owner (and dog)"

Excellent small location, perfect for two. Very well equipped to an unusually high standard. Lovely, large garden with tables and chairs. Local village with essentials, very well located to explore Provence, especially the local L'Isle sur la Sorge, best for restaurants and shops. Owner speaks excellent English, more than happy to assist with advice and local knowledge. Easy parking, 90 mins from Marseilles Airport. Strongly recommended, book early !


Thank you for your kind comment on the vacation home. We really appreciated your visit and hope to see you again.
