Chef Marie was excellent! She made dinner for us on 2 nights of our week-long stay. I highly recommend her. She is indeed a "chef" of high quality. The food selections were local and the meals were some of our most outstanding in our 2 week European trip.

Chef Marie and her helper were very nice and adapted easily to some of our late arrivals. The dinner was excellent and everyone loved the service. I'd do it again without hesitation.

Chef Marie came in one evening for a private meal and it was superb. Her menu selection was perfect for us and the food was fantastic. We had one vegetarian in our group and this was no problem at all. She was brilliant.

Chef Marie was excellent. She was flexible in working with us and accommodated special requests. Her meals were timely, well prepared and served and delicious! As she is located in one of the near by villages (to Lacoste), I would highly recommend her for this villa.

Utterly fantastic!

Chef Marie made my 60th birthday celebration the best! Amazing talent. Wish we had booked her a couple of more times during our stay.

Chef Marie provided the best meal of the week. The service was great. The meal was gorgeous with great flavor.

Marie (the chef) was as last year quite outstanding and a very nice person.

Maria -
Thank you for coming to Figon last evening to prepare dinner for my friends and me. Your creation was delicious & every taste enjoyable!

I would absolutely recommend Chef Marie to anyone who wanted to have the ultimate Provence experience.

We cooked at home every day except for the delicious meal Marie prepared for us. She was delightful and didn’t seem to mind our questions about what she was doing in the kitchen.

Chef Marie prepared a delicious meal that we all enjoyed.

Chef Marie prepared and served dinner for six of us. It was a delight to watch her work and the meal she made us was memorable. She worked in a quiet, discrete, and friendly manner.

We had Chefs in 5 of the nights we were there and they were all great, I would recommend them without hesitation as well.

Out of this world… our meal with Marie was one of the best moments of our week at Mas de Gancel. It was clear that she loves all that is seasonal, wth an emphasis on vegetables. For any group catering to vegetarians— Marie is a wonderful option. Marie is kind, passionate, and so very talented… Will definitely have her again.

We love chef Marie, she made a fantastic meal for us.

The chef experience was also very good. Chef Marie's food was delicious - it was a bit on the pricy side which is the only comment.

5 stars for Sophie and Marie. We loved our beautiful meals! They were among the highlights of our trip.

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!

We were absolutely delighted with Chef Marie and her dinners. The food was truly excellent and the presentation first class. In addition, Marie herself is very pleasant and was very unobtrusive around the villa. We could not recommend her enough!

Chef Marie was indeed a highlight. Here is a short review of the evening
She arrived on time and was totally professional. She was also charming and quickly grasped the mood of our group. Her food was very good and well presented. She left the kitchen clean and tidy with plates and cutlery in the dishwasher. It was a pleasure to be served by her and she wrote us a short note saying she had enjoyed it too. Can’t be better than that!

We had Marie come and cook a dinner for us. She was marvelous! Her meal was delicious. She was friendly and extremely efficient. She had amazing ingredients and was a pleasure to interact with in French, Portuguese and some english. Truly a lovely evening.
