Q. Did your villa meet your expectations? If not, why?
R. Yes

Q. Were you able to find the property easily?

Q. Please provide details
R. took several attempts for the taxi driver to find. We were looking for the color of the gate from the photo we were sent and apparently this has been painted a different color now as well.

Q. How were you treated by the property’s staff and manager? (5 being best)
R. 5

Q. How would you rate the cleanliness of the villa? (5 being best)
R. 5

Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. Better cooking equipment in the kitchen, more large serving platters since this house accommodates large groups and instructions for using the stovetop and oven.
More towels in the bathrooms. It would also be nice to have bicycles on premises with the rental of the villa.

Q. Is there anything that needs to be replaced or updated?
R. Two of the wooden pool lounges are without cushions and since these are wooden slat lounge chairs they are not usable/ comfortable without the cushions.

Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
R. Yes

Q. Would you consider staying here again?
R. Yes

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. Perfect spot for a large family gathering, walking distance to the village, close proximity to many other villages / areas to explore and large pool and outside areas for gathering that was private and picturesque.

Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
R. Maybe some more suggestions on things to do in the area, in the form of booklet in English. There was a guide in the house but I would have liked something a bit more extensive to consult.

Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. Carol was great when we encountered travel problems due to the train strike and arrived on a much later train and missed being able to pick up our rental car and was able to provide a driver from Nimes for us . That was a vacation saver for us as we thought we would have to spend the night in Nimes. Also liked all the updates and information we received prior to our trip . We have recommended this villa to several friends that I believe will book for next summer.

Q. Chef Tour Experience Details
R. Chef Damien and it was great

Q. Would you consider staying here again?
R. Yes

Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. Mostly that the villa was so comfortable for so many people. We all could have privacy, but then we also could eat dinner together around the same table. And sit together in small groups both indoors and outdoors. Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to use the grounds too much, but all the younger ones used the pool no matter what. We also enjoyed that the villa was so close to a village.

We liked Gilles personal attention to our request for a personal tour of candidate villas and the location of the Mas des Nenuphars

Areas for improvement:
Too many points of contact within OnlyProvence. It was confusing who to contact for what.

Would you recommend Mas des Nenuphars, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours? Why or why not?
Yes to all although there was a clear difference between the three chefs we used during our stay.

What star rating would you give Mas des Nenuphars? 5
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 5
What star rating would you give Chefs/ Tours you experienced? 4

The team at OnlyProvence were helpful throughout our review and selection process. The personal attention of Gilles was extraordinary. The property was as described and the OnlyProvence team was very attentive in preparing us for our stay and responsive during our stay. We unreservedly recommend OnlyProvence to anyone considering arranging a once in a life time experience in Provence. Our only regret is that we had only three weeks to enjoy our villa.

Wonderful and well tended garden, great swimming pool, excellent location within walking distance of Eygalieres, multiple tables for breakfast, lunch, dinner outside, nice outdoor furniture, beautiful views of the Alpilles from the sitting area by the pool, well stocked kitchen (equipment). Friendly staff - Michel and Claude.

Ways to improve:

Nicer bed linens esp. in master bedroom, better bed pillows (down), instructions about where the main switch is in case of electrical failure, unpredictable wifi. Annoying covers on the sofas requiring constant re-adjusting. Maybe need slipcovers. Interior décor only average. It would be good to have some playing cards, balls for the pool, maybe a few board games for guest use. One full afternoon was spent trying to get the telephone and internet working. And that was 2 of us working on it with Orange, one of whom is computer engineer. Help needed by concierge in emergencies such as this.

Would you recommend Mas des Nenuphars, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family and why/ why not?

Yes with caveats

What star rating would you give Mas des Nenuphars? (1 is lowest and 5 is the highest) 4
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 4
What star rating would you give Chefs/ Tours you experienced?
