Our last visit to Villa Velleron was September 2007. This was the 6th time that we had the great joy of returning to our favorite holiday respite. In 2003, when I made our first reservation, we planned to stay only 2 nights, but after Christian's charming assistance via e mail, I realized that to enjoy all we had planned in Provence that we need not pack up and move to another location, because Villa Velleron was so ideally located and because I sensed that Christian would be a great help to us in refining our day trips. As well, we had booked dinner reservations elsewhere every night, except for the first, but after an evening on the terrace under those bright Provencal stars, Christian's easy manner as he explained wines and each dinner course, and some of the most wonderful food that we had ever eaten prepared lovingly and skillfully by Claudia, we cancelled all our dinner reservations and extended our trip for 12 days! Obviously, we were delighted with our experience. Both Christian and Claudia could not have been more charming.
Since that time, we have become enamored with Provence, the little village of Velleron and their 6 evening/week truly local farmer's market, and the great hospitality provided by both Christian and Claudia.
The Hickls are world travelers through their previous corporate lives and appreciate the needs of travelers. I can't imagine a more genuine Provencal experience. My husband and I highly recommend that you find this remarkable gem and bask in the warm hospitality and generosity of Christian and Claudia.
