“Beautiful loxurious summer residence”
We have spent our holiday in Susanna and Dominic’s lovely house in St. Didier. We were my wife and I, my oldest daughter and my youngest daughter with her husband his daughter and their 2 dogs. The house has enough space for all of us and the lovely big garden where the dogs loved to play. We enjoyed very much the lovely salt water pool which is much nicer than the usual pools. The house is very nice equipped with all kinds of modern facilities and especial the kitchen is very well equipped. During our stay Susanna and Dominic stay in the small cottages in the front of the house. They were very helpful and very discreet and because of the very big garden and land it was no problem at all. We can strongly recommend Susanna and Dominic’s house if you want to have a nice stay in one of the most beautiful parts of France. Our key word is: nice, calm and exclusive. Lis & Hans
From the start when I communicated with Dominic and Susanna this promised to the perfect holiday. And it was. The property is lovely in a wonderful location with fantastic facilities including a superb pool and great relaxation and leisure facilities. This is the perfect venue for a large group. Dominic and Susanna recommended several places to visit and we were able to contact them very readily if we had any queries. We do hope to return to such a wonderful holiday home.
“Lovely St Didier”
We had a wonderful time in the Provence. The owners gave us a lot of useful about where to go near St Didier. They also helped us to book two of the restaurants that they recommended. The house was spacious and charmingly Provencal with a very large swimming pool, lots of flowers and trees for shade from the hot sun and lovely colors in and outside of the house. The location of the property in St Didier was perfect to set off everyday as we did to discover the Vaucluse. It was a special trip for our family and friends.
“Lovely Cottage in a perfect setting- wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt!”
Me and my wife enjoyed this 2 weeks in the Cottage "Parc la Truffière" very much. A perfect equiped cottage for 2 persons with its own sitting place under oak trees. The cottage is lovely furnished and has all what you need for a pleasant stay- small kitchen with nice round kitchen table-great walk in shower, comfortable double bed, lots of light. We loved also the pool and it's sport's aera. St.Didier is a very nice village with 5 restaurants a small market on Monday and from this village you are just a short trip away from the Luberon and some of the most beautiful villages. Susanna and Dominic gave us lot's of good advices for trips, tours, restaurants, painters galeries etc. we recommand this place for younger and also for older persons. Wir würden gerne wieder kommen nächstes Jahr!
Owner's reply: Danke für euer nettes Kompliment, es war schön, euch bei uns zu haben. Wir freuen uns, wenn ihr wieder bei uns wohnen werdet! Der Garten rund um den Gite ist jetzt noch grösser geworden und wir haben nun Sonnenstoren am Gite!
“A wonderful home from home”
We were just two, and thought we might be lonely in a house that could easliy accommodate three couples, or two with lots of children (and even more, if you take the gite as well). The kitchen is large and well equipped, with room for three or even four to work together in crazy harmony. There is a back patio as well as a large front garden, with plenty of outdoor furniture, so separate groups can get away fom each other when they want to. And then there is the pool area, at the side. But in fact, we enjoyed having it all to ourselves, the large, cool rooms and the outside space, because it is such a friendly, lived in house. You feel that "the others" will be back soon, and you can enjoy the luxury of being alone for a while. The attentiveness of the owners, who telephoned a few times to make sure we were comfortable and had found everything we needed, added to the friendly feeling, So did occasional visits from a local friend of theirs who came to water the garden, and a man who came to clean the pool. Both were willing to chat if we were in the mood, or to do their thing quietly in the background if we didn't. (We chose to chat.) There are neighours quite close at hand, but we saw and heard almost nothing of them - just an occasional waved hand and smile or a call of "bonjour". St-Didier proper is just five minutes away by car, or a pleasant 20 minute walk, and has all the day-to-day necessities -- a fine 'de luxe' restaurant and others more modest but still very good -- a boulangerie, a mini-marche that somehow finds room for everything (including excellent fruit and veg), and a little general store. There's a market on Monday mornings with stalls for everything from straw hats via dried herbs and fresh olives to local cheese and honey. And all this in the very best location in Provence, with the Luberon to the South, the Vaucluse to the North and easy access to Avignon, Arles, Orange and Nimes for those who care for history (or shopping). In fact, Carpentras (just 15 minutes away by car) is all the "town" anyone really needs, and has some interesting history. We had a very happy ten days here, and were really sad to have to leave.
Owner's reply: We enjoyed having the both of you so much in our home. You were both so courteous and kind even when we spoke with you before you rented and we knew already that you would be the perfect guests. And you were! It seems that you enjoyed every aspect of the property, the front and back porch with views, the hammocks, the pool area, the tables set under certain trees and so we have created the house and land in every detail. We look forward to having you again as you have expressed the interest to return. Our house and property welcomes you again and again.
“A Fantastic Family Haven”
Our family (7 of us including 5 girls aged 3-15) had a delightful week in the main house. We were made to feel very welcome by Dominic and Susanna on our arrival, and through the week they went out of their way to ensure that all of our needs were met - this included taking us to a local swimming spot which otherwise would have been impossible to find. The main house is spacious - there are 3 very large bedrooms downstairs, and a large bedroom/bathroom upstairs. The house has been recently, and tastefully, renovated and has good quality furnishings. The yard is large, with a number of pleasant dining/lounging and play areas for a large group to spread out in. The pool is recently installed, and a good size. We really enjoyed our time in this house - it is a pleasant walk from the house into St Didier, which is a charming village with good dining options, and close to several other lovely villages including Venasque. Our greatest challenge was to persuade our children that we should leave the pool and go sight-seeing! We look forward to returning when next we can.
Owner's reply: It was really great having your whole family at our property. It was wonderful to see the whole property, house and land, being used by all your daughters and the parents as well. While some were in the pool, others were playing badminton while you and your wife were relaxing under the shade of one of the great oaks, having a glass of wine. As you told us also, the way the house is designed, being so open and accessible to the outside and also being mainly on one floor, made it so easy for you to keep an eye on all your girls! It was also very nice to hear that you as a whole family walked from the house to the village almost everyday and really supported the village restaurants and local businesses. You all made a lasting impression upon one of the restaurant owners we know especially with a family of seven coming almost every evening and particularly with five girls. We feel we have really made new friends and look forward to seeing you again in Provence or when we come to Melbourne.
“Challenging owners but house worked well”
There are two houses on the property including a gite and 4 bedroomed house. The gite is new and suits 2 people maximum but is incredibly hot with no shade at all, and no phone or TV. Wifi was being added during our stay in the gite but technical difficulties remained . The main house is in excellent condition, with good amenities and the pool worked well. If the owners are on site then they will be continually interacting with guests as well as gardening and cleaning around you, and borrowing the phone for their own use. The house is cool with some shade and the surrounding trees provide some relief from the heat.
Owner's reply: These renters stayed in the apartment for two weeks then moved over to the house for two weeks. They knew fully that we as owners would be here on the property. Please read the real facts and truth of this situation 1. When the first cleaning took place, it was discovered that there was a large scratch on the brand new sink in the bathroom. When we showed it to the renters, they denied that they did it and became outraged and embittered towards us and they stayed this way the whole time. We never accused them but simply showed them this scratch which only they could have done since they were the first and only ones with the new sink. I suppose that is why they write we were “ challenging owners”. After we asked them many times if all was fine and they said yes and they received their full deposit back which we paid to them after they left , they then wrote this falsified review. 2. The apartment had and has wifi and phone and we even put in a stronger transmitter for the man since he was on the computer all day after which they commented,” it works perfectly”. It was advertised no television so they knew it but satellite tv has since been added. 3. The apartment is for two persons as advertised but the renters decided to invite their adult daughter to stay with them. We bought a new air mattress for her and even offered that she stay in the house. They refused our offer and furthermore we did not charge them a penny for her stay. So one can only imagine what it was like for them in the apartment and for us! The renters broke our rules but we did everything to please them. 4. We told them from the first day that we, not our workers, would have to water all the plants and clean the pool daily and we even told them when exactly we would do this so as not to disturb them. Never once did we clean around them or clean when they were in the garden or pool! 5. The apartment indeed has shade and also an iron and bamboo cover and also there are many umbrellas and of course a large swimming pool. The property has over 200 oak trees and the trees with so much shade are one of the great features of this property. But the renters hardly ever sat under the trees or ever used the pool. It was 35 to 40 every day this summer and of course it is very hot and dry in Provence. That is why we have kept the trees and have such a large pool but they need to be used! And plants must be watered and pool cleaned daily or the plants would die and the pool turn green! 6. We told the renters that we would only need to use the phone in the house for long distance calls if there was an emergency and there was ( credit cards stolen). We would never have used it otherwise but they were alerted to the fact but chose to write negatively about even this. 7. We did everything in our power to please these renters as we do with all but once the scratch was pointed out, they really had it in for us. What is an owner to do? Here are the real facts and please read all the other great reviews to know the truth about this property. Also see all the photos and then make up your own mind!
