Customer Reviews


    This property really ticked all the boxes and I'd go back in a heartbeat. Far enough (5 mins drive) from Bonnieux to feel like you have your own little oasis, but close enough to think nothing of popping out to the fantastic bakery each morning for fresh baguettes and croissants...and back again for cocktails or a wonderful dinner. Tasteful bedrooms and furnishings teamed with a well-equipped kitchen, plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your time - what more could you ask for? Two external options for dining, each sitting 10 and one with a simply stunning view out across the valley. Huge table to seat 10 inside too. The pool was a lovely addition and well used during our stay. The fitter of us loved the tennis courts - great to have good sports equipment on the premises too. Lots of lovely nooks to grab some quiet time, with more comfortable seating areas other than the main living space inside meant that we never felt crowded. There were lots of things to keep children amused too, had any of us thought to bring any! :-) less selfish next time perhaps. It's a great base from which to explore, but so welcoming to come home to - on the practical side, well lit at night, not many steps and plenty of space to park multiple vehicles. My biggest worry when hiring somewhere is often what the beds will be like - need not have worried as they were perfect too. Lovely house that really feels like home.
    Cette propriété a vraiment coché toutes les cases et j'y retournerais sans hésiter. Assez loin (5 minutes en voiture) de Bonnieux pour avoir l'impression d'avoir votre propre petite oasis, mais assez proche pour ne rien penser de sortir à la fantastique boulangerie chaque matin pour des baguettes et des croissants frais ... et revenir pour des cocktails ou un merveilleux dîner. Des chambres et un mobilier de bon goût associés à une cuisine bien équipée, beaucoup d'espace pour s'étendre et profiter de votre temps - que demander de plus ? Deux options externes pour dîner, chacune pouvant accueillir 10 personnes et une avec une vue tout simplement époustouflante sur la vallée. Immense table pour 10 personnes à l'intérieur aussi. La piscine était une belle addition et bien utilisée pendant notre séjour. L'installateur d'entre nous a adoré les courts de tennis - super d'avoir un bon équipement sportif sur place aussi. Beaucoup de jolis recoins pour passer du temps au calme, avec des coins salons plus confortables que l'espace de vie principal à l'intérieur, ce qui signifie que nous ne nous sommes jamais sentis à l'étroit. Il y avait beaucoup de choses pour amuser les enfants aussi, l'un d'entre nous avait-il pensé à en apporter ! :-) moins égoïste la prochaine fois peut-être. C'est une base idéale pour explorer, mais si accueillante pour rentrer à la maison - du côté pratique, bien éclairé la nuit, peu de marches et beaucoup d'espace pour garer plusieurs véhicules. Ma plus grande inquiétude lors de l'embauche quelque part est souvent de savoir à quoi ressembleront les lits - n'ayez pas besoin de vous inquiéter car ils étaient parfaits aussi. Belle maison qui se sent vraiment comme à la maison.

  • Les Grandes Chenes is in a great location with a very good sized swimming pool (with a diving board) and very comfortable sun loungers. The tennis court is also great and there are good outside seating areas for eating.

    Les Grandes Chênes sont très bien situés avec une piscine de très bonne taille (avec plongeoir) et des chaises longues très confortables. Le court de tennis est également super et il y a de bons coins salons extérieurs pour manger.
