Our party of 8 adults and 4 children (aged 4-10) stayed at the property in August 2018 and we had a really fantastic time. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and excellent pool and the house was comfortable and very well equipped. The walk into the picturesque village of Barbentane where there is a small supermarket, bar and cafe took around 20 minutes but the boulangerie is about 10 minutes walk although it is along a busy road. A car is need for trips to the larger shops. Patrick and Gigi are wonderful hosts, always helpful and close at hand if needed. We thoroughly recommend it.Read more
We stayed in the house in the first week of July and had a great time. Pat and Gigi live on the same property (slightly behind the main house) and were very helpful and friendly, whilst being completely unobstrusive. They were really welcoming on the first day and gave us a tour of the house. Pat's English is also very good, which helped a lot. A really lovely couple! The house is really nice with a very large private garden and an excellent, deep swimming pool with a nice covered sunbed area beside it. There are plenty of sun loungers, a fanastic out-door eating area/gazebo and a great barbeque. Inside, the house is very nice with all the kitchen stuff you could possibly want. The kitchen has 2 fridges which is good for larger groups. The living room is the highlight of the house with a high-end pool table, piano, electric keyboard, TV area and dining table and couches. There are two main bathrooms plus a smaller third one and everythying is in good working order. The one thing that would have made the house perfect at this time of year is aircon (hence only 4 stars for facilities), but I appreciate an old-fashioned property like this could not have that fitted easily. As it was, the heat was a major issue and we ended up leaving all bedroom doors open all night with fans running in every room. If we had stayed two weeks perhaps we would have acclimatized better. The reason why I would not give the property 5 stars (together with the aircon) is because when we booked it, it was listed as having 6 bedrooms. However subsequently this was clarified and updated to 5 bedrooms plus a mezzanine. This meant two of our party had to sleep in the mezzanine, which we specifically wanted to avoid, and which meant they had zero privacy for the week and which meant the living room was off-limits to the rest of the party while they were in bed. For many groups, this may not be an issue at all but for us it was definately a problem, hence we deduct one star. The other thing to note is that 2 of the bedrooms are adjoining, so really only suitable for parents (in one of the rooms), plus one-two small children in the other. This is not necessarily a negative, just something to keep in mind. The surrounding area is lovely. There is a nice walk behind the village which affords lovely views of the valley. There is also a nice running route around the back of the village (4 mile circuit). The insects are noisy during the day but not a problem at night. The local village is a handy 10 minute walk and has a few decent establishments, including a nice bakery but the 3 pizza services in the town are somewhat strange (very slow - 1.5 hours for 5 pizzas, refuse to make more than 5 pizzas!, and ran out of ingredients). The two bars also seem to keep strange opening times. There is a smallish supermarket within 5 mins drive or 15 mins walk and 2 larger ones about 20 mins drive away. Keep in mind, this is not a tourist hotspot so most locals will not speak English (some of our party had decent French). Within 15-20 mins is Avignon which is well worth a visit and a tour on the train. We also drove about 40 mins to kayak down a river under the Pont-du-Gard which for most of us was the highlight of the holiday so highly recommended.Read more
We have a week's holiday at Mas Madelon. At first we thought it was annoying that the owners were always present there, we felt that there was constantly looked at our fingers, but actually you do not suffer from the owners. They do not use the pool, you have the garden for you alone .. The house itself is very well kept, nice with air conditioning. What is a downside is that there is no back door, you always have to go back through the front door. The environment: in Noves there is not much to do, you always have to take the car to see something. House is also on a big job. In Noves there is a shop where you can make your purchases (+/- 1km). In the neighborhood is an airport, but you do not suffer from it.Read more
We very much enjoyed our holiday in Mas Madelon. Spacious house, with comfortable pool house and around the pool plenty of sunny and shady places to make everyone happy. Very friendly and helpful owners. Perfect location for excursions, 1 km from the motorway, 15 min from Avignon. In the center there is a winery with tasty wine to the liter and 2 very good bakers.Read more
This house fulfilled all our wishes: peace, privacy, beautiful surroundings, accessibility to many attractions or beautiful surroundings, close to a village with bakery, shop, restaurants, ... The friendliness and information given by the owners was the icing on the cake . The house itself is very well equipped, I forgot to bring a hairdryer and immediately I got one from the owner (which she will leed in the house for next guests #). An easy kitchen, large fridge, dishwasher (everything in double matter, because in the pool house this is all available again). I also want to mention in particular that there are very good mattresses and pillows in the house! So many superlatives from us, but that is because we were very satisfied!Read more
