Interaction with guest

I live in London but I have someone who manages the property and is at hand if anything goes wrong. He also maintains the garden and pool. I also have a cleaner who cleans the house throughly after each stay. I am always at the end of my mobile and any problems are immediately attended to. I have been renting for several years and I am happy to say, 99.9% of guests have a wonderful time and a few return year after year. I would say, I am far away but I easily build up a warm rapport with guest through emails and phone.

The only word to define our stay at Belle de Jour is outstanding. We chose to stay there as a way to relax prior to our return home. We loved the ambiance and blissful setting. What is wonderful about the house, it is on one hand so delightfully relaxing yet close to animated areas for dinner and shopping. Valerie , the owner, is a delight. Belle de Jour is a must for anyone visiting the Luberon. It is certainly a must on my list.

Owner's reply: It gives me great joy to know you had such a great time. I agree the region is a perfect blend of nature and culture. I hope to see you again.

“Beautiful and Idyllic Place to spend our wedding anniversary”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2015

We had a wonderful holiday, and Belle de Jour could not have been a better place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary. We loved the building, both inside and out, and felt it had so much character, from the furnishings to the stone walls and stairs that really gave it the air of an old farmhouse. It was completely beautiful. We loved the seclusion, the view and (of course) the quite breathtaking pool which we spent many happy hours in, between exploring the surrounding countryside and villages. The villa is placed at the end of a quiet driveway, and is literally a five minute drive from the town of Gordes (officially one of the most beautiful villages in France) - alternatively, if you enjoy a walk there is a shortcut along empty lanes which brings you out, after a peaceful 20 minutes, by the main road into the village. Belle de Jour itself is stunning, very secluded, with an amazing private swimming pool. Inside, the villa has all the amenities you could ask for, and is tastefully furnished throughout. Downstairs is the main dining / living room, bathroom (plus luxurious shower) plus WC, upstairs the two bedrooms (on two separate floors) (the topmost bedroom has its own en suite bathroom). We stayed for two weeks in order to make the most of the trip, hiring a car and alternating between lazing around the pool and exploring the many beautiful villages in the area - Belle de Jour is really perfectly placed to do so. It was magical to sit out in the evening with the pool lights on, just listening to the cicadas. All in all, we couldn't fault this as a place to stay. The holiday was a present to ourselves to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and first foreign holiday (from the UK) since we got married. This idyllic holiday villa was, quite simply, the best choice we could have made. The owner, Valerie, was a wonderful person to deal with, and despite our laughable French all of the locals we met were equally friendly. We definitely hope to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you for a wonderful review and really happy you enjoyed it so much. Belle De Jour seems to have quite an effect on people. I never want to leave once I arrive even during the colder months. Hope to see you again.

“"Port in a storm"”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2015

I wanted to find a two week retreat in order to finish a script i had begun writing in New York City last winter. I stumbled upon a dear friend of mine who told me about a very charming and picturesque house rental in the south of France she stayed at the year before. Knowing she thoroughly understood me as well as my taste and fancy, without further do, I swiftly arranged for my sojourn at "Belle de Jour". Its pleasing and attractive architectural design had me smitten at first glance and I immediately knew i had found my perfect getaway.…... With its exquisite gardens, its relaxing pool, its soulful and heartfelt decorative style, "Belle De Jour" made my stay memorable and bestowed upon me the feeling of passion, enthusiasm and the resonant spirit i needed to conjure in order to complete my project. It also granted me the much needed calm and serene atmosphere when i could just unwind and "let go". Indeed, after a two week stay in wonderland, it was very difficult to depart this magnificent sanctuary, sweet asylum and harbor of peace. I can only strongly recommend a sweet escape - getaway vacation at this wonderful property. I am looking forward to going back to "Belle De Jour" and the enchanting Gordes region for my next project or just to spend precious and sincere moments with family and friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you stay.

“Charming house in a beautiful area”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2015

We have never visited this part of provence so it was wonderful to see it at a quiet time of year. The house was really pretty, freshly painted and tastefully decorated, very cosy, it is tucked away from the the town in wonderfully quiet spot. You have a real feeling of being away from it all, and there is a very peaceful view from the garden over what looks like a a little hillside. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the pool, we would love to come back next year at the end of April or May. The owner was helpful with recommendations and travel tips. Thank you!!

Owner's reply: The region is generally known for amazing sunshine and even March can be very warm but look forward to seeing you next year. Thank you and glad you enjoyed the place.

“Gorgeous just what we needed”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2015

My husband and i stayed at this gorgeous house near gordes a really quintessential French village . On arrival I was greeted by the sight of the most beautiful irises like Van Gogh picture . The pool was perfect size and South facing we could have our meals on the terrace . To be honest I could have stayed in this spot all summer . The Cooker takes a bit of getting used to as it's an induction cooker but I got the hang of it in the end . I loved this place

Owner's reply: Thank you for the excellent review. It is always a delight for me to know that my guests have enjoyed their stay. Please spread the word.

“Magical Gordes Hideaway”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2015

I stayed at Belle de Jour early October and even then the weather was just about perfect for touring in the car and walking. The house itself is all charm, very comfortable, very quiet and nicely secluded down a rustic lane. Very clean and it seems very well managed. Had no problems with anything and would be happy to rent again if I'm lucky enough to get more holidays in Provence.

Owner's reply: Thank you and immensely glad you enjoyed your stay.
