Claudin and Yvon are the most lovely and kind people. The bus connections to their place were not always that practical but they were so helpful and made
it work for me so I could get back and forth to Aix-en-Provence daily.
They're garden, the pool and the house are a beautiful place to hang out. ...and quiet. I could always use the kitchen when I needed to cook; the wifi is good. I totally enjoyed staying here!!! A big thanks to both of them. I loved my stay here and would come again for sure.
Maravillosos dias en la Provenza Francesa pero como en casa, gracias al fenomenal recibimiento de mis anfitriones. Cada dia tenia mi desayuno y los lugares de interes a punto de mi ruta. Una ubicacion excelente y siempre un placer pasar un rato con Caludete e Ivan. Muy recomendable!!! :)
Sehr netter Empfang, schnelle Lösungen bei kleineren Problemen wie zB kein Wlan mehr, kein warmes Wasser (nicht verschuldet durch die Gastgeber), super Ansprechpartner, unkompliziert, schönes geräumiges Zimmer, Frühstück in Ordnung jedoch nicht abwechslungsreich
Ich hatte Glück, da noch 3 weitere Franzosen da waren und ich so sehr viel sprechen konnte und direkt Anschluss für Unternehmungen hatte.
Sehr liebe Gastgeber! Ich komme gerne wieder!
Merci beaucoup! :)
Home was very comfortable, we enjoyed the quiet, had the house to ourselves, Claudine was out most days, but if we needed any help her husband was most helpful, with maps and fixing dvd. offering bread and butter some basic supplies when we arrived. We thought it was good value
We had a great experience chez Claudine en Aix en Provence, The location is absolutely beautiful, the accommodation is of a high standard and the hosts are really nice, friendly and most helpful. . Just great!
Homestayers who stay here will need a car and a good map as it is about t 10 k from Aix and note beside any village or shops. The lovely accommodation is beside the family home and is self catering and well equipped. Other guests may be sharing the self catering accommodation at the same time but we did not have that experience . As I had hoped to talk french with the host, self catering meant ww arranged to eat with Claudine on two occasions but I was not sure whether it was appropriate to ask or not!!
I highly recommend it to anyone but don’t forget the car and the good map.
The precious autum days I stood with Claudine and her husband at their place last october were very nice and pleasant. They gave me a very warm welcome and helped me where ever I needed help or information. The room, the house and the garden + surrounding have a nice and peacefull atmosphere - it is really a good place to relax and just to feel fine. I hope to come back to this place soon:) Thank you very much!!!
I stayed with Claudine, Yvon and their family for a week in June and had a wonderful time. As this was my first time travelling alone I was a little apprehensive but the family were so warm and welcoming and I felt very relaxed and comfortable. It is a beautiful, old farmhouse with lots of character and a lovely pool in beautiful surroundings. So calm and peaceful surrounded by nature and the horses on the farm are so friendly. I took some French lessons with Claudine who is a very fine teacher. Merci Claudine. I hired a car and explored the surrounding area. Ariana very kindly lent me her bike and I enjoyed exploring the surrounding area on the bike also. Aix en Provence is about 8 km away and is a very nice town but my favourite was Ventabren which is just 3 km from the farmhouse and a really pretty hilltop village with lots of little paved streets, fab views of the valley and flowers everywhere. A trip to the Luberon region is also highly recommended and is one of the most beautiful regions in France. In particular a trip to Roussillon is recommended which took my breath away with its beauty and charm. And the lavender fields are a sight to behold, don't forget your camera. I look forward to staying with Claudine and family again next year.
I spent a wonderful week in Aix with Claudine, Yvon and Arianne. Right from the first day they were very helpful and friendly and made me feel at home. They have a beautiful property in the country and a relaxed way of life, with animals, an extensive garden and peace and quiet. I found myself torn between wanting to stay and enjoy the surroundings and wanting to explore. Yvon kindly drove me back and forth to Aix and the bus stop and spent time planning my next days journey. I was very appreciative for all his help. Claudine showed me my room which was so lovely and even gave me perfumed soap which was a nice touch. I met Arianne, their daughter who is delightful and was invited to dinner with her friends on two occasions. I thoroughly enjoyed staying here and cannot speak highly enough of them. It was sad to say goodbye and I would love to return someday or welcome them to my home in the future. Kind regards, Clare ♡
Posizione molto tranquilla ma non distante dai maggiori centri. Famiglia (Yvon e Claudine) molto amichevoli e disponibili. Ottima permanenza, da consigliare.
Yvon and Claudine were very accommodating and helpful. The room was lovely and the location was peaceful and very central to all things in Provence.
