This husband and wife team together with their beautiful children turned this stylishly converted farm house into a dream location. Add in their warmth and kindness and it felt more like staying with friends for the weekend and if they recommend a restaurant, go there!

We stayed in the tree house for four nights in June, and thought the property was fantastic. The property has been beautifully renovated, and while we only actually saw the tree house, the other rooms also looked to be luxuriously appointed from the photos included in the owners' album which shows the renovation of the property.
The pool area is nicely done and great for the long, long afternoons of sun - breakfast is taken at a table by the pool and had a great atmosphere; there could maybe have been a little more choice at breakfast, but that was only a minor gripe.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful with recommendations for dinner bookings and other activities - we enjoyed all the meals we went out for, and the wine tour with Celine Viany, who the hosts put us in touch with
The treehouse itself is superb - it is down a path from the main property and overlooks vines in both directions, and is totally private - the hot tub on the deck is fantastic! The accommodation was very spacious and well appointed - we would definitely recommend spending the extra money for the uniqueness of the experience

We stayed here for our honeymoon in early September and, despite missing out on the sat-nav at Marseille airport, when we finally got there, fell in love with the place on sight!! It is beautiful, set against the most exquisite backdrop of mountains and fields. We entirely recommend it.

Le Clos Saint Saurde isn't a hotel and for me, that is exactly what makes it so charming - you can cook your own dinner or make lunch with food from the market and generally potter around as though it's your own place [if only!]. We stayed in both the Treehouse and in the Zellige room during our visit. The treehouse is a bit of a work of art with a fab secluded setting, its own candle fireplace and hot tub. Something really special. Zellige is part of the main house and utterly cosy with a great bathroom.

There are loads of fantastic restaurants around - Jerome is very helpful in recommending these [as well as giving us maps and directions!] and we loved Le grand prix in particular. Plus, big recommendation to pop over to Chateaux Neuf du Pape - its about 40 mins, and the wine tasting is such good fun.

The Clos is so far away from antiseptic, impersonal and corporate that it’s come out the other side. It’s not a hotel; it’s a guest house (a big family's home, actually) and you will be mixing in with the owners, their children and a cavalcade of assorted relatives and animals.

The place is mainly run by Jerome and he’s in position every morning to organise the 10 –seater communal breakfast from a kitchen area next to the swimming pool patio. Everyone will lace into a tray of bread and a dish of fruit, with cheese, yoghurt, cereal and tea/coffee also available. Small cylinders of fresh orange juice are served too.

Apparently, some guests find this enforced matiness uncomfortable; fortunately all our fellow residents seemed highly sociable and friendly. Jerome’s a top man, and great guy for recommendations. He sorted us out at least two excellent restaurants that we would never have found on our own, and he likes feedback from his guests about where they’ve been and how they’ve got on.

This area also houses the weekly evening meal for guests, organised by Jerome and his very pleasant and cordial wife, Geraldine (a corker), where we had a really good time together with another couple, all enjoying our al fresco meal and some excellent wine.

This versatile area is additionally the home of the giant communal fridge, and guests get a shelf for their own food and drink thus establishing the bar alternative.

The property itself is lovely – a big old farmhouse with a large courtyard surrounded by lots of natural beautiful countryside and a well established vineyard. The location is very isolated, and once you are within the zone of the Clos itself, the views and the outlook are marvellous, both day and night. The nearest village, Beaumes de Venise is about three miles away. You will need to look hard to find the signs to the Clos, and then don’t mistake it for it’s more immediate neighbour which is under renovation nearer the road. The Clos is behind, down an adjacent 50 yard track.

Although there is a lot to do nearby viz Orange, Mont Ventoux, Vaison la Romaines, etc, the Clos’s swimming pool is also a big draw on a hot day. It’s often used simultaneously by various members of the family who seem happy to co-exist with whichever guests are around at the time. The pool is a good size and well maintained, with a wide patio and several sunbeds with nice thick mattresses and enormous umbrellas. A very comfy way to spend an afternoon.

Finally, to our room. Imagine a hermit’s cottage after he’d won the lottery and got the designers in. Sort of “rustic chic plus”. A lot of brown, a lot of stone and a lot of beams, boards, concrete and cement. We had a separate small lounge and a larger bedroom, with quite a snazzy gallery above for bath, basin and shower facilities The shower was quite impressively set in a cocoon of pebbles – very attractive. Jerome also sourced us a large flatscreen TV and an internet cable for our laptop. Reception on both was perfect

Unfortunately what we didn’t have was air conditioning (which we knew) and it was as hot as hell when we arrived, and about the same when we left. Two fans later and it wasn’t much better but it could have been worse. Regrettably any natural rock in the room seemed to retain the heat rather than cool anything down as suggested. The small outside patio (down some very steep steps) was a refuge in the evening, and it’s not often you can share the night with singing frogs (pond next to the swimming pool) and chirruping bats (small opening not dissimilar to a cave under the room).

Before we left, Jerome was happy to print out our flight boarding passes, and our main memory of the Clos will always be of the happy Thuillier family and their beautiful home, which, at night particularly, seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.

The perfect place to unwind! Set amongst rolling hills covered in ancient vines, Le Clos Saint Saourde is the ideal romantic getaway. Beautiful, cool, airy bedrooms, with stunning views of the house, garden, pool and beyond. Jerome and his family do everything possible to make your stay run as smoothly as possible - nothing is too much trouble.

Over a delicious al fresco breakfast each morning, Jerome gives amazing tips on places to visit and restaurants and wine to sample - organising any reservations for you where necessary.

We would definitely recommend Le Clos to couples of any age who are looking for some well deserved time out. We will be back!
