We had a blast at your villa. Such a beautiful house! It was all above expectations! The pictures of your house do not reflect the beauty of it in real life. My husband and I loved the master room at the pool, such a great and relaxing space and decorated with so many good taste. Same applies to the other rooms, they were all very comfortable with good beds and lovely to see that the house is all decorated in Provence style. All the rooms were occupied by our 3 young adult sons and my mother, but we had not the feeling to bump into each other, there are so many areas to isolate. The pleasures were also in the small details, you have foreseen everything to have the perfect stay, from the sweetest bed linen to the lovely table service, with more than enough plates, salad bowls, the colorful pool towels, the very beautiful and well-maintained garden, etc, etc. The kitchen was also a pleasure to cook in, everything we needed was present. We brought our own kitchen knives from home as we love to cook, but even that was present :-) We were also positively surprised by the quality of the service included with the villa, everything was of a high standard. Thank you so much! There are so many ugly rental houses in France but yours is definitely not!

Your house is truly lovely, and I congratulate you on the light airy way in which you have furnished it, with a Provencal flair. The kitchen was so charming, particularly well arranged and well stocked; opening up the table with the additional leaf, we had our breakfasts there, and it was always a delightful way to start the day. The pool was a great hit, and the enclosure provided us with the necessary feeling of it being safe for the three little ones. Again I congratulate you, for this area is very well designed and laid out. However, it is the terrace outside that was my favourite part of the property, we had a series of fabulous dinners, and I shall remember it always with great joy... especially the moment I stepped out of the car to approach the house, and taking in the lawn, the roses and olive trees, and the marvellous backdrop of the vista before me, I entered the covered terrace and smiled... for it was a dream come true! My heart flutters to remember it now!

We had a fantastic week: the villa was superb and very functional. We who cook a lot loved the kitchen, extremely well equipped, a delight. The property is perfectly maintained and tastefully decorated. Special mention for the caretaker, available and responsive, a pearl. We rent every year in the area, we will be back! Thank you very much, we are delighted with your services!

My wife and I stayed at this villa for a week in mid-June. The villa is nicely decorated and has a well equipped kitchen, nothing is missing. We stayed at the pool house which has a very nice bedroom and direct access to the large back garden and a little terrace for a romantic breakfast. The location is very calm with beautiful views, close to a lot of nice villages and 5 minutes from a golf course. The caretaker who welcomes you is fantastic. A great experience and we will come back!
Marco from Luxembourg
We spend two wonderful weeks at Villa Saumane, our stay at the villa was perfect for all family members - we all felt very, very comfortable. The house is really thought of everything and the garden and the pool are great. The support by the caretaker was also very good, we are very satisfied and we are happy to come back and will gladly recommend the Villa Saumane!
Gisela and Edgar from Germany
The location was great. We weren’t able to make use of all the nearby activities as our children are still very young but we hope to do more of them next year. We thought the house was really well laid out, very well equipped kitchen, very clean. We thought the set up of the secured garden/pool area but then having the separate area outside the house to enjoy was great - and we loved eating all our meals on the terrace. Communication from the owners was good and the caretaker was very responsive.
Lucinda from United Kingdom
The house is very nice furnished. The owners have very good taste. In the garden was good to have those old trees, to give enough shadow. We had a great time!
Sandra from Switzerland
Our family of 7 adults and a teenager had the most wonderful time at Villa Saumane. The property is set in beautiful grounds with a Provencal garden, a large orchard and big swimming pool. The home itself is exceptional, many large interior and exterior living and dining rooms and a kitchen straight from heaven (Smeg fridge, Lacanche cooker etc etc). The attention to quality with linen, cutlery and music systems makes the villa far superior to most. The villa is in the countryside but just 3 minutes from the nearest boulanger in beautiful Fontaine de Vaucluse, and just a little further to all the restaurants and markets of Provence.
Gary from South Africa
We enjoyed our holidays in the Villa Saumane very much. The house was perfect and beautiful. We especially liked the gardens and the quiet of the area. The house and especially the kitchen are very well equipped, we did not miss anything. We will definitely come again!
Michelle from Switzerland
We did really enjoy our stay in this magnificent place. It was not the cheapest house, but it was a wonderfull place to stay, we really loved it all!
Katrien from Belgium
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Saumane. The house and the grounds are lovely. The house is very well equipped. The area is lovely with loads to do, from our point of view it was a perfect holiday, with the decision on whether to relax by the pool or visit one of the Beaux Villages being the biggest decision we had to make for the 3 weeks!
Margaret from Ireland
We had a great time at the house, we love it! We can only say one thing, it was perfect!
Tammy from Sweden
