5 out of 5
Mas des Cerisiers was a very comfortable villa that accommodates three to four couples, rustic but with modern conveniences. We had seven adults in our group, three couples and a single. There was ample space in the kitchen, dining and living areas for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and dining. Of our seven nights, we had chefs come in twice, we cooked in twice, and dined out at local restaurants three times. The outdoor areas were also well appointed, and the grounds were very well maintained. We were able to enjoy ripe cherries right in our backyard!
We all loved the area, which is very close to Bonnieux, LaCoste, and Apt. We could walk to Bonnieux and ride bikes or drive to LaCoste and Apt. We visited different villages each day, and, then, would share the day’s experiences in the evenings over wine and meals.
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.
Chef Geneviève Dely arrived right on time to prepare our first night’s dinner at the villa. She was very personable and spoke English quite well. The seafood dinner she prepared was absolutely delicious and sumptuous. She left the kitchen as sparkling clean as she found it.
We engaged Chef Gerald for a cooking class on our third night. Chef Gerald was personable, patient and humorous as he taught all of us his techniques for Provencal cooking with fresh ingredients. We enjoyed a memorable dinner of salad, filet of beef, fresh vegetables and a raspberry tart for dessert.
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.
Mas des Cerisiers: The given street address in our arrival instructions was not recognized by our GPS. It was necessary to enter lat, long coordinates in order to locate the villa.
Additionally, the villa had an issue with one of the toilets running constantly. We reported this immediately, and we were advised that previous tenants had experienced the same problem. The owner did come over, but advised that we should not use that toilet during our stay. While not insurmountable, this was an unresolved issue that should have been addressed prior to our arrival.
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.

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 could plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon to Gare de Lyon, and getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
