It was truly one of the best vacations for each one of us ---- a unanimous vote. We actually hated to have to leave. The villa is gorgeous, the grounds are lovely, and the accommodations could not have been better. With the eight of us, there was plenty of room, and it was nice to have the ensuite bathrooms (8 women, you know!!). The reading materials available are extensive, and there were also a number of brochures with information on the surrounding areas, which were very helpful. The décor in the villa is also wonderful --- warm and welcoming ---- a delight to which to return.

Patrick was a great help. He met us promptly on our arrival, and not only for showed us the facilities, but also made us reservations for a couple of restaurants, and was immediately available when we needed (gas canister for the stove). He gave us directions for groceries and for shops in Rognes and Lambesc. The maid was very friendly, and brought us croissants in the mornings, as well as keeping the rooms tidy.

Speaking for all, we would give La Bastide des Jardins 5 stars. Having dealt with Only Provence, I would also give a 5 star rating. The website was easy to access, and had all the information we could possibly use. Your e-mail was also very inclusive and answered any questions we might have had.

We loved the setting and the house and both Patrick and Sylvie were most charming and most helpful. Would rate the property 5 stars.
The only area of improvement that we would suggest is a better house book. When we have rented from other groups (for example Unique Home Stays in the UK or One Fine Stay), they have provided a house book with suggested markets, shops (and their opening times!), restaurants, nearby activities. Would have been extremely helpful to have this handy.
Wonderful vacation and would definitely recommend this house to others.

Locale

Rognes is a lovely bedroom community 20 minutes north of Aix-en-Provence. Located halfway between the sophisticated Roman city of Aix and the entry to the Luberon Mountain region, Rognes has a real country feel with rolling hills, a stone village, and different flowers and fields for every season. The landscape is sumptuous with the vineyards of the 10 surrounding wineries.

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 Aix-en-Provence TGV (3 hours direct) and rent a car. You could plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Aix-en-Provence to Gare de Lyon, and getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
