“Charming, rustic Provencal home for the perfect holiday”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Choosing the ideal holiday home for ourselves, our children and their partners was never going to be an easy task, however from the outset of our correspondence with Dominic and Susanna, I felt that we were making the right decision. Their patience, knowledge and willingness to share their love of Provence and their home, with no pressure to actually choose their property was unexpected and a real bonus.

The house was truly charming, clean, comfortable, tasteful with an incredibly well equipped kitchen which we made use of daily. The garden is stunning, lots and lots of tall trees, different seating areas, a sparkling clear pool well maintained with sun chairs and hammocks. Two good sized bedrooms with cupboards downstairs and a huge , and I mean huge bathroom, with separate shower and 'spa toilet' (!!) was great to use. Upstairs are 2 inter-leading bedrooms with a toilet and sink, very comfortable.

The property is not far from the most charming little village which boasts 3 boulangeries, several restaurants, an amazing place where nougat is made on the premises, as well as icecream, plus a wine shop selling wines from the region which are not sold in the supermarkets, a huge plus. St Didier is also close to several charming villages , each of which seemed to have a market on different days which made it easy for us to buy fresh veggies, cheeses, meats, tapenades etc for our culinary feasts prepared in the kitchen or cooked on the barbecue outside.

We loved being in Dominic and Susanna's home so much that we abandoned some of our plans to sightsee, in order to stay 'home' and simply chill. There was enough space both in the garden and inside for each couple to also have some privacy if they wanted. Wifi was excellent, with free local calls, not to mention being able to call or email the owners for advice and suggestions on where to shop , eat etc - I can't recommend La Truffiere and its location enough.

“Home away from home ..”
Reviewed 23 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We travelled to "Parc la Truffiere" for a family trip. My wife, 7 month old daughter and i had a wonderful time thanks to the lovely hosts Dominic and Susanna. The property is beautiful with a large back and front yard with lots of trees and space to walk around. The house has been refurnished and has a classic elegance that we loved - Dominic and Susanna have a book on how the renovations were done and it really was quite extra-ordinary. We stayed in the main house for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. It was private, comfortable, met all our needs and really made our holiday one to remember.

Dominic and Susanna stayed in the Gite next to the main house for a week while we were there. We had a lovely time with them and they were very gracious hosts. Susanna cooked dinner for us twice - a delicious soup and a lovely chicken roast which we enjoyed outside on a warm sunny day. The dinner itself and the evening we had with them was one of the highlights of our trip! We had many memorable conversations with Susanna and Dominic, and especially loved hearing about Susanna's violin playing!

We would highly recomend staying at Parc La Truffiere. We really enjoyed talking with Dominic and Susanna and found them respectful of our privacy and lovely people. We only have fond memories of our trip.

It was a great pleasure to have this young family from Canada as guests on our property. Both parents are medical doctors with a lovely young daughter and they were the most agreeable and pleasant family one can imagine. They truly loved the property and house and also the region and we were more than willing to share all we knew of our 20 years of experience about Provence so they could have the very best time in their holiday; the best bakeries for the very best bread and croissants, local artists who open their home to visitors, the finest restaurants in the area,little known vide greniers or flea markets where the guests can get great deals on wonderful objects, hidden walk and biking trails etc. We have really made new friends!

“Charming Villa in a Great Location”
Reviewed 11 October 2012 for a stay in August 2011

A charming villa sympathetically restored by the owners in a typical Provençal style with a brand new large pool and garden full of oak trees that provide welcoming shade in the hot summer days. Take time to relax on a hammock out of the sun and read a good book whilst sipping a glass of wine or take full advantage of the glorious sunshine on a sun bed next to the pool where trees have been cleared to allow the sun from morning till evening. A quiet and private villa but not isolated and only a short distance from St Didier with lovely restaurants, shops, bakers and a weekly market. The owners were great communicators and very accommodating, making sure that there was a large outdoor table on the terrace to allow our two families to enjoy evening meals together and they have furnished the villa to a high standard and are passionate about renters enjoying the holiday experience in their home. The local cave with a selection of quality local wines is only a 20 minute walk or short drive away and the villa location is ideal to explore the region.

It was great having you Dak and your two families as we knew already when we spoke with you several times that you would be excellent guests who would enjoy the property and take good care of it. And indeed it was that way! We had very good communication before, during and even after your stay and that is very satisfying for us and obviously also for you. You told us for example that you would need two grills so we prompty provided that for you and you were very happy with that. We mentioned to you several things to look after while staying in the house and you were happy to do those things. Thus it was a mutual caring for the needs of one another and that is always the very best situation.
WE hope you will come again as you mentioned you would. WE welcome you always. Greetings to your family!

We enjoyed having the both of you so much in our home. You were both so courteous and kind even when we spoke with you before you rented and we knew already that you would be the perfect guests. And you were! It seems that you enjoyed every aspect of the property, the front and back porch with views, the hammocks, the pool area, the tables set under certain trees and so we have created the house and land in every detail. We look forward to having you again as you have expressed the interest to return. Our house and property welcomes you again and again.

“A calm and beautiful place in the heart of the Provenvce”
Reviewed 25 September 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We spent a wonderful week here. The Gite is great for two people with a lot of space and everything you need like kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, wifi and phone. Outside is a large garden with a nice pool and a lot of trees offering shadow when it is warm. Service people were very friendly.
From this place we could easily make our excursions to all the famous places in Provence.

Thank you for being such great guests and appreciating how we are transforming this truffle oak tree farm. You were the ideal guests to appreciate the natural beauty of the land as well all the authentic restoration we are doing here. And we see you are renting again in October. That is the best compliment.

It was really great having your whole family at our property. It was wonderful to see the whole property, house and land, being used by all your daughters and the parents as well. While some were in the pool, others were playing badminton while you and your wife were relaxing under the shade of one of the great oaks, having a glass of wine. As you told us also, the way the house is designed, being so open and accessible to the outside and also being mainly on one floor, made it so easy for you to keep an eye on all your girls!
It was also very nice to hear that you as a whole family walked from the house to the village almost everyday and really supported the village restaurants and local businesses. You all made a lasting impression upon one of the restaurant owners we know especially with a family of seven coming almost every evening and particularly with five girls.
We feel we have really made new friends and look forward to seeing you again in Provence or when we come to Melbourne.
