This was the best holiday I think we have ever had. The Villa and the location in the Luberon Valley was fantastic. We couldn’t have wanted anything more.

Mas De Ribe is amazing. Every part of the experience from the website, to the management of bookings and the professionalism through the whole experience was fantastic.

Only Provence will always be on our website favourites and we can’t wait to book again at one of the lovely Villa’s again.

It was a great location and the Villa was superb. We loved the lay out and the facilities –everything was covered.

On the last day I stupidly left a bag behind and at the Avignon station we called Stephanie in a panic. Stephanie had been working with the plumber on some minor plumbing maintenance. She offered and drove my bag to Avignon without hesitation! As a result we still were able to meet friends for dinner in Paris and fly out next day without any issues! We will always remember this act of enormous generosity and kindness.

Areas for improvement:
Not much really – maybe more bandwidth on the Wireless Internet?

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

Absolutely. If we go back which we hope to we will be looking for another Villa through Only Provence

Chef Ronald was awesome and we had a lovely birthday for my wife.

YES

What star rating would you give Mas de Ribe? (1 is lowest and 5 is the highest)
4.5

What star rating would you give Only Provence?
5

Mas de Ribe is a gracious, sprawling country home atop a rolling hill near Cucuron. The grounds are private, immaculate, expansive and iconically Provencal. The house bespeaks the care and love of an engaged and enthusiastic owner-family. I am very grateful that they have chosen to share it with some fortunate visitors - via thoughtful agents, Only Provence.

What did you like about your experience?
Immaculate grounds and residence. Lots of outdoor shady places with lots of outdoor seating for the Provencal summer. House suitably furnished and beautifully appointed. Thoughtful touches - fans in each bedroom, gas in the BBQ, bikes in the garage, more.

I rate the house a 5, but not a pretentious 5 - Mas de Ribe is a natural 5.

Areas for improvement:
Not much could improve. Ideally would like a place for grillade - grill or parrilla or firepit - where means and sausages might be grilled on grape prunings or other woods.

Would you recommend Mas de Ribe, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours to friends/ family and why/ why not?
Yes. In fact my guests were impressed that I had 'found' a place of Mas de Ribe's calibre. I credited the broker, Only Provence.

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.
