- We were very pleased with the professional and responsive service provided by OnlyProvence. Emails were replied to very promptly and there seemed to be nothing that was too complicated to arrange. OnlyProvence is a first class operation with an extremely high level of service.

Only Provence seemed fine, although our contact was limited to identifying where to stay, paying and then getting there. But the information we were given regarding whom to contact on arrival was extremely out of date: the person we were telephoning and texting had ceased employment last year. Her successor (whose name and number we were also given as an alternate, fortunately) assured us that Only Provence had been made aware of this and I am persuaded that she is correct.

We really loved our stay at Mas de Roses, the house and gardens are beautiful and the general Luberon area is stunning. We had a hard job dragging the children (and ourselves) away from the villa to explore the beautiful countryside as it was so idyllic at mas de Roses.

As for OnlyProvence, I would use one word - efficient. Everything went smoothly, with no hitches. Had we not booked through you we would not have discovered the marvelous chef or the tours. I am grateful to my daughter Rebecca who discovered you and thank you for enabling us to have a marvelous vacation.

I found all the people I dealt with at Only Provence to be very knowledgeable about Provence, prompt in responding to my queries, and helpful. They made planning my visit much easier than I would have imagined, and really contributed to everyone in my party enjoying the trip. I also received great assistance with booking a rental car, and making arrangements for taxi service.

Our group of five-friends from three-states came to St. Remy and Bastide de la Douceur to rest, relax and enjoy one-another's company. We could not have asked for a better experience. This lovely home with beautiful grounds provided the perfect backdrop. Our sun-filled days spent by the pool or reading a book under the shaded arbor, followed by long candlelit dinners under the stars allowed us to create memories that we will cherish always. From the onset, Only Provence was responsive and made the experience seamless. We cannot wait to return.

Areas for improvement:
None, both the home and the Only Provence staff were wonderful.

We have already booked La Bastide de la Douceur for 2018 and would recommend highly.

We would strongly recommend Mas Allure, Only Provence and our chef (and his wife who acted as a waiter for the night).
Also the staff at Mas Allure were excellent and very accomodating.

5 stars for Mas Allure

5 stars for our chef (Yvan) - He had to deliver dinner on our 1st evening in very hot conditions (39 degrees)

Overall we were wrapped in our choice and thanks all at Only Provence and Mas Allure for making our trip a great one.

With respect to 'Only Provence' the simplest thing to say is that you are the best vacation rental company we have dealt with. I originally had some concerns relating to your location in the USA with us being in the UK. However these proved to be totally unfounded. Your response time, expertise and knowledge of the rental contract and related issues was faultless. The brochure, knowledge of your rental properties and Provence was likewise excellent, as was your payment process. In our experience many vacation rental companies fall down with back up and contact at the holiday location itself but this is not at all the case with 'Only Provence'. You clearly have knowledgeable and easily contactable representatives on the ground and in our case a special thank you must go to Barbara our house manager who handled all the relevant cleaning and management issues during our stay and was in contact whenever needed. Finally even the bicycle hire was seamless, as the company knew you well and delivered and collected the bikes just as planned. On this basis our rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

-I would recommend Mas des Anges because the setting was so absolutely magnificent and so beautifully maintained, but I would feel compelled to include what happened on our final 24 hours there.
-Only Provence was great as well.

We had the most wonderful time in Provence and this was mainly thanks to the wonderful team of Only Provence, which was very efficient and courteous all along, to the wonderful house, which was well equipped and beautiful and to Yvan, our chef for one night, and Jean-Bertrand, who took us on the most wonderful hike (balade).

In short: we would go back tomorrow if we could.
Thanks for the best holiday we have had in a long time.

This was our second visit to Mas Allure and we enjoyed it as much as our first. The house is lovely and exceptionally well appointed. The location is superb and access to a wonderful bakery, butcher and restaurant are perfect.

I would recommend both Mas Allure and Only Provence. It is my impression that the clients desires are important to both you and the owner.

My dealings with Only Provence were first class. I am in the accommodation business and Stanley Smith was a professional.

It is a little worrying making a commitment for an expensive rental, working from Australia, booking through USA and committing on a house in France, but once having made the decision the rest was easy. We particularly liked meeting the owners and we loved all the amenities of this fine property.

I’d highly recommend Mas de la Galifette, Only Provence, and Chefs.

Look no further than Only Provence when booking a stay in the South of France. The quality and price of the house we stayed in was exceptional. The photos and description are very accurate. The ground staff once you’re in Provence are reliable and efficient making the stay stress free and easy. It is such a gorgeous part of the world and we can’t wait to come back for another stay.

The Team at Only Provence was great. They had a large selection of homes to choose from. As we were traveling with a large group - 18 adults - they were wonderful about helping us find a home large enough to accommodate.

The team at OnlyProvence were helpful throughout our review and selection process. The personal attention of Gilles was extraordinary. The property was as described and the OnlyProvence team was very attentive in preparing us for our stay and responsive during our stay. We unreservedly recommend OnlyProvence to anyone considering arranging a once in a life time experience in Provence. Our only regret is that we had only three weeks to enjoy our villa.

Paul G.

Average rank of 5

I am so happy we found Only Provence before our once in a lifetime trip to France. Finding Only Provence assured that our experience in Provence was as good as we could ever have hoped. We were able to see seven villages in Provence that will remain in our memory forever. Had we stayed closer to Aix en Provence, experiencing these villages would not have been nearly as easy. The drive to Rustrel from Aix en Provence was a daunting one. While we made the drive five times, it would certainly have deterred us from seeing as much of Provence as we did had we not been staying in the heart of Provence. I loved our five days in Paris. But our eight days in Provence were the highlight of our French experience. How can anywhere be that beautiful?!

Thank you for all the service and support you provided. You are one exceptional organization.

I was nervous about booking this type of accommodation online for a group of friends, mainly because it was a sizable amount of money we were sending sight unseen, however with each step of the booking process with Only Provence I felt more and more confident. The quick responses and detailed information helped tremendously. If the villa we stayed in is indicative, the properties on offer are exceptional and are as described on the website. I would definitely use Only Provence again in the future.

I just want to thank all involved at Only Provence for everything. The villa stay had been planned for three years to celebrate a significant birthday milestone for several of us, so we were hoping for something exceptional, and the villa delivered. We now have some wonderful memories to share and hopefully we will have a chance to go back to Provence another time.

This was the second time we rented from Only Provence and their service is top notch. We were a party of 15 (8 adults / 7 kids) and finding a house for 15 in the area we wanted was not the easiest task. Only Provence helped us find Mas de Fleurs, which we had originally discarded as it, only accommodate 12. Only Provence spoke to the owners, a really wonderful and caring couple. They are also the property caretakers and we couldn’t be more pampered. They welcomed us warmly and were available to us immediately to answer questions.

Thank you again and hope to use you again in the near future!

Only Provence have been very straight forward and helpful so very happy with the service provided. Only comment was a slight muddle on meeting Caroline with the keys and to show us around. She had expected a call from us as to our time of arrival whereas the letter said to call her if we were not going to be there at 5pm. This could be made clearer although we were an hour early and it was ok on that occasion.

All in all a fantastic week.

Only Provence listened to my list of requirements for a villa rental and delivered EXACTLY what our family was looking for in Provence. We had no knowledge of the Provence region and depended on Only Provence to identify a property that would fit our needs. The villa that was recommended was exceptional and perfect in very way!

Cynthia C.

The experience started even before we got there! Our agent at Only Provence went above and beyond to (again) find us the perfect location for our family of six. Mas de Montolivet was a dream we hope to return to in the future. My family are repeat beneficiaries of the professionalism, and excellent custom care and service of Only Provence and they seem to outdo themselves every time, so YES, I would recommend both!

We can’t imagine planning a vacation within Provence by any other means! Our only wish (pun not intended!) is that Only Provence would offer services to other locations as well.

Thank you, Only Provence again for making this another memorable experience!

We had very good service from Only Provence, before and during our stay. We truly enjoyed our 1 week there.

I would recommend Mas de St Joseph , Only Provence , and the chef I had to anyone.The villa as I said was perfect. The Only Provence staff was equally good. Our BA flight was cancelled and instead of arriving at 4pm we got there at 11 30pm. Fortunately your rep was there to greet us.The chef we had , he was superb.A very simple menu , but cooked to perfection.

OP was very well organized to help us with all aspects of our vacation planning and assisted to make a dream vacation come true. They were so helpful and responsive in setting up bike rentals, private wine tour, truffle hunt and a Chef. We chose Chef Marie to come to cook a meal one night. She was so sweet and talented - a definite highlight of our time in Provence. While there, the ground team also helped us make dinner reservations at great restaurant. We felt very well taken care of!

Thanks again!! Be well!!

The Only Provence website is well constructed and user friendly. The villa descriptions are detailed and mostly accurate. The booking process is also easy and assistance is readily available either by email or telephone. Louise was very helpful in selecting chefs for the group. Detailed information about surrounding villages and attractions is easily searchable. The Only Provence French team helped us out by suggesting a restaurant for lunch in St Remy and making the reservation. It was a memorable meal.

Areas for improvement:
Only Provence: During the booking process, it came to light that the advertised price per week for our selected dates on the website was incorrect, causing an unforeseen 300 Euro increase in the price per week. Only Provence needs to ensure that all information is current and correct.

Even though there were some issues with both Only Provence and the villa, we would certainly recommend Only Provence as well as Mas des Cerisiers.

Only Provence was wonderful to deal with as the website had great options for every need and desire. The rates were competitive and the house was top notch with the cleanliness and location. You can tell that their houses are better than the rest. Communication was great with the company and the payment process was easy. I would certainly recommend the GPS for any rental cars as I consider myself very capable to read maps and navigate but after breaking down to get the GPS (which was recommended to us as well) I repeatedly told my wife I’m so happy I did as roads aren’t as well marked as they are in the states. Took all the worry out of navigation.

What a wonderful experience it was, right from the initial contact to the day of departure from Provence. We had a wonderful time at the house and in Provence. Only Provence arranged a couple of tours with a guide, Delphine, who was exceptional! Our minibus was luxurious.
We had signed up a cook, Carmela to cook for us an evening meal for 10 days. She was truly a wonderful cook, giving us taste of provencal dishes. We had chef Yvan prepare a special dinner for all of us and it turned out to be the highlight of the trip! From the presentation to the taste it was superb.

Highly recommended. This was a dream vacation and it will be hard to accept staying in hotels again! Only Provence worked with us and was flexible with arrangements to accommodate our schedule and the Chef’s access for us.

It was impressive how well you worked together with Chef Jean-Marc to coordinate logistics and make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you!

My father said it was the best family holiday we have ever had! I don't think that there can be a better endorsement than that!

Once we had made the decision which village in the area, it was choosing from a great range of property with the facilities we were looking for. We also liked the choices available to use the expertise and knowledge of the area that helped us make the best decision. The information allowed us to make a very good choice in Mas de Saint Joseph. Everyone loved the accommodation, they all concurred that is was exactly my style, but they all very much loved it too! It allowed us space and great communal areas to share a fantastic holiday. In addition to this we had the choice of amazing chefs and tour guide to enhance a perfect stay!

Booking the house was easy and convenient. People at Only Provence gave valuable information and were pretty fast to reply.
The house was even better than described. It was perfectly clean, in a very good condition and only 5 min walk to the village. Our best renting experience so far.

All of our dealings with Only Provence staff – Ingrid, Stanley, Louise, Christine- were top notch. There never was a time when our questions or concerns weren’t answered. Louise arranged for us to use PayPal through Only Provence to pay Sophie, the cook, so that we didn’t have to keep returning to an ATM to keep a large sum of euros on hand. I would give the company 5 stars.

As for Only Provence, they do a great job. Couldn't ask for more. Stanley always answers my questions/requests immediately. The one disappointment this year was when Christine delivered our "welcome" gift 2 days before we left our 3 wk vacation. There was no time to enjoy it, so it was left :-(

Let me start off by saying that it was a pleasure working with your company and I was very happy with the assistance your company provided in helping us find our rental in Provence. As I look back, I recall sending requests to several different rental companies and individuals, and your company was the first one to respond. I was actually surprised that we did not even get responses from a couple of companies, including one that was recommended by a travel magazine. Anyhow, I must say that Ingrid was a great help from the first email and throughout the rental process. She responded to each and every question promptly and with plenty of information. My family is talking about another trip to Provence in 2016 and I will be sure to contact your company for assistance.

What can I say except that it was a trip of our dreams. We finally compiled the photos and are re-living it through them. To only give Elegance in Provence a 5 star is not sufficient. I have always been leery about booking a place on-line but the experience with Only Provence was terrific. Your team are all pros.

I am back from France and just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Chateauneuf du Pape.

We had an absolutely wonderful evening with chef Gerald and I will be writing to him directly to let him know how happy we were with the whole experience. He's such a great chef and a very personable man who was very patient with us. The food was delicious.

I also wanted to thank you for all your help over the last few months. As the chief organizer of the group of 8 people, I found it quite challenging to get things organized. Anyway, your help with the chef and the restaurant reservations, the directions to Auchan and everything else you did was wonderful. I really appreciate all the information and help.

Thanks so much Louise - your help made our trip wonderful!

Renting a villa is almost as stressful as buying a house. It can be even more daunting when you are on the other side of the world. But when you find the right one, it makes all the time, research and planning worth it.

We have nothing but high praise for John Dean and his team at Only Provence. The purpose of our villa rental was to celebrate my 50th birthday. And we had very specific criteria that John personally worked through with us until we were happy.

Only Provence was professional and incredibly helpful with individual tours. The Chef we choose cooked the most amazing French meal, paying attention to how it was served and what wine paired perfectly. He was so personable - we enjoyed our evening very much. We would suggest the Truffle Hunting Tour be recommended to all visitors. It's worth the drive and is very educational and fun.

Only Provence provided a professional, reliable and prompt service with a comprehensive selection of high quality and traditional properties in the Provence area for a family holiday.
On a general point - we were very happy with OP and the service very efficient. There appeared little background information available on OP on the net when looking into it's history. This prompted a slightly uneasy feeling. However, the actual experience proved this to be wholly misplaced. But would suggest you have greater amount of information available over a wider range of sources; such as trip advisor and other villa/Mas holiday rental sites.

I must say that I’m very pleased with the service Only Provence gave us!! There’s always some concern when you put your holiday in the hands of an agency that is new to you. You found it on the internet (where there are many scams and pirates!!) and have no feedback from anyone.
But your agency has proved that there still are very reliable and professional ones. Thank you for that, much appreciated!! Hope to be doing business with Only Provence in the near future!!
