We wish to thank you and the owners of Le Mas d'Eygalieres for a truly wonderful stay from 5 - 12 April. The property far exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by the care, love and attention the owners have poured into it. It is truly one of the most amazing properties we have stayed at anywhere around the world. The villa is better appointed than most people's homes! Absolutely love the kitchen and the abundance of cookware, crockery, cutlery, glassware, linen, etc. It was a pleasure just to be able to choose the table setting each night!

We were appreciative of the daily attendance by Mdm. Josephine, the housekeeper and the gardener. The scale and detail of the property certainly required them to be there to keep it ticking along!

Thoroughly enjoyed the chefs Gerald (who delivered our first night's dinner and made sure we were competent to serve it ourselves) and Ronald who was an absolute star! Beautiful food, charming and professional chefs.

Our walk around Gordes with Lucy Holmes was lovely. I think it was the only activity we thought was a little bit overpriced for the experience. There is a bit more to guided walking than just the walking. The ones we have done before have been with guides who are walking encyclopedias of the local flora, fauna and geography as well as history of course. This is what you pay for that you cannot get from guidebooks. We thought Lucy was slightly lacking in this regard.

Please pass our compliments and thanks to the owners. We are grateful to have been given the chance to share this very special place.

Kind regards

C.
