We had such a wonderful time in Provence.

Would you recommend Villa Arcadia, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family and why/ why not?

Yes. Especially the chef service given the convenience, quality of food, cost effectiveness. Especially with kids.

Villa Arcadia is a large, well-appointed villa in the lovely village of Paradou (bakers, butchers, mini-market, post-office & hairdresser within 5 min walk). Garden and pool are great, warm enough for our two small boys and not as salty as I was expecting. There is however one issue – there is building work going on next door with lots of noise (cement mixer) and builder’s vehicles coming and going from 8am until after 6.30pm c.20meters from the dining area and pool. If you are looking for a relaxing week by the pool it would be prudent to check the state of the building works in advance. Looking a previous reviews it mentions no BBQ implements or kettle, this has been fixed. As for shower drainage, still a small issue but the handy man came to unblock while we were there.

Would you recommend Villa Arcadia, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family and why/ why not?
- Yes but not at the current price with the work going on. Paradou is lovely village and Villa Arcadia is lovely property (without the noise)
- Yes. Only Provence has been easy to deal with, no issues.
- Maybe to Chefs – yes makes life easy but not sure about the value for money

Only Provence was a great company to work with. Nothing was a problem.

The house was also fantastic although we had a few issue with the drainage in the kitchen sink and the shower upstairs. The kitchen sink was blocked and a man came to look at it the same day but the problem was not fixed - we weren't concerned as we were leaving early the next morning. Also, it would have been nice if the kitchen had some tongs for the BBQ (we're Aussies and used the BBQ most days!!) and a kettle to boil water - either for the stove or electrical.

Le Paradou is the charming name given to this tiny village situated between the Baux de Provence and Maussane les Alpilles at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range.

Although this village may well ressemble Paradise, the origins of its name Le Paradou are much more down to earth... its name comes from the ancient windmills used by the weavers who lived on the banks of the Arcoule river.

In the middle ages, the village was called St Martin de Castillon (not to be confused with the village in the Vaucluse).

Established at the foot of the fortress, the Baux de Provence, the fate of the village was closely linked to the nobles, the "seigneurs des Baux". Two historic artefacts from this era can be seen today : a surprising hydraulic irrigation system and the remains of a 12th century chateau with crumbling towers and a walled enclosure.

You can also visit an unusual museum displaying more than 400 different santons and 32 scale-models in an area 400 m2. La Petite Provence du Paradou is understood to be one of the biggest creches in the world. This museum merits a detour as you can admire the work of some of the most talented Santon makers in Provence.

Le Paradou is a delightful village filled with beautifully restored houses and colourful gardens. With its narrow, well-maintained streets, brightly painted shutters, restaurants decorated in Provencal style and tempting hand-craft boutiques, Le Paradou is a glorious example of Provence at its best !

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
