I just returned from a 3 week trip to France and I truly have to say that the 4 nights my sister in law and I spent at Julien and Carole's home were the highlight of the trip for me. I cannot say enough about the beautiful atmosphere that is the setting for this French farm house. It is located in a quiet rural area, right off of a small road giving easy access to a number of charming towns close by. The small town of L'Isle Sur la Sorgue is only 10 minutes away and is a very pleasant place for a meal or a stroll along the river. The Sunday market there, which is well known, is worth a visit....just be sure to get there early as it gets very crowded by 1030AM. For our stay we were in the room "Cigale" which was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was enormous and we had a small refrigerator in the room which was a nice extra. As expressed in many other reviews, the meals here are excellent. The large breakfast is served buffet style with home-made jams (at least 10 different types), croissants, pain du chocolate, coffee, fresh juices, sliced meats and cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, crepes, hard boiled eggs and more. There is no way you go away anything but stuffed! The dinner we experienced was excellent and it was so much fun spending a few leisurely hours over dinner getting to know our fellow travelers from all over the world. Julien accommodated my red meat free diet without hesitation. You will not have a better dining experience anywhere else. It is evident that Julien uses only the freshest ingredients and all the courses from the starter dish to the dessert are superb! The fact that the dinner is served family style at a large, beautifully set table, gives you the opportunity to interact with your fellow travelers in a unique way. So much can be learned about the area by talking to the other guests and learning from their experiences. It was so nice to have the beautiful grounds of this house for a relaxing place to sit and read, access the internet, or sit and talk after breakfast or upon your return to the house after a day of sightseeing. The pool area is very pleasant and inviting, as is the lovely courtyard-style outdoor patio area off the dining room. Julien and his wife Carole are wonderful hosts and I do plan on returning to their amazing home one day soon.
