“All we were looking for ... and more”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We loved our week in Montelimar. Delicious food and wine and idealic old villages all in close proximity to the house. Plenty to savour and explore.
The house was charming. Didn't feel like your standard rental home. Very homely and full of character ... but with all the mod-cons. We made great use of the pool and back courtyard where we enjoyed local wine and cheese in the sun; it was hard to drag ourselves away.

We can highly recommend this house and the region. If you just want to relax, swim, eat and drink then no need for a car. It's a short walk into town where there are plenty of restuarants, cafes and shops. But if you want to enjoy the delightful villages around the region then best to organise a car.

“A french home from home experience, not to be missed!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The villa or probably best described 'grand maison' is charming in every way. A large comfortable house with personal touches everywhere which just add so much to ones stay. The bedrooms are all quite large with lovely furniture, great storage and the beds are very comfortable. There were 8 of us staying in the house for 2 weeks including 5 children from the ages of 8 to 16, we all had lots of space and managed to find secluded areas in the house and garden to be alone when needed! The house has everything a large family could wish for or need. Only 3 minutes along the beautiful avenue are wonderful patisseries, supermarkets, tabac and a great chemist. Montelimar is a friendly pretty town with great restaurants and bars. For children there is a lot to do, highly recommended is tree climbing in Marsanne, Karting in Montelimar and the new public Olympic pool is really worth a visit. Overall a truly fabulous house in a magical part of the world!

“A lovely quirky place to stay.”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The property has just about everything you could need on holiday - no matter the weather: air conditioning and log fires; sun traps and shade; pool and indoor games; well equipped kitchen and BBQ; good quality convenience shops and restaurants a 10 minute walk away. It's located to take advantage of the Ardeche (where we went canoeing and enjoyed the spectacular scenery) and the Drôme Provencale (lovely villages, markets, pottery and sunflowers and lavender).

“Lovely House”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Portes de Provence Montelimar is a lovely house on the outskirts on Montelimar. The house is spacious and has a lovely pool area. This location is idea for exploring the local area and especially the vineyards. The immediate area is not particularly great and seems to have been commercialised in recent years but this didn't detract too much from the holiday as we were either staying within the gates of the house or driving to explore nearby sights. The house is not particularly toddler friendly, with plenty of stairs and accessible cellar but for any kids over 3 years it's fine.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a fabulous time and found the house just right for us, Montelimar is a very relaxing environment, and the area very convenient to access some great places to visit – there’s plenty more for us to see and do there. We found the house homely and functional. Dealing with Brian (the owner) was a pleasure and made the organisation of our holiday, and therefore the holiday itself, so much more enjoyable.

“ticked every box and much more, simply wonderful”
Reviewed 11 December 2012 for a stay in July 2012

A lovely house that felt much more like a cherished home. Excellent convenient location for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside and close to town to wonder in for a little shopping or, for an evening drink at one of the many bars or restaurants.
The owner encourages feedback to maintain the incredibly high standards, and even allows guests to use their soft top car.
The garden, pool, terrace, and other outdoor areas are all absolutely fabulous and well equipped.
I only wish we had stayed longer.
