“Perfect Gite, Hosts, Location and accommodation”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for 3 weeks ( 11th June to 2nd July 2016 ) at La Picholine at Mas des Oliviers, Saint Remy de Provence and we could have stayed 3 months as we loved it so much!
The hosts Marie Hélène & Eric were absolutely amazing with their hospitality, their availability and never obstructive, but always present when we needed them.
The gite "La Picholine" is perfect for 4 people, even though we were only 2, besides week ends with visits from family and friends! The fittings are of the highest standards with extra large Tv, amazing stove, dishwasher, washing machine etc... The kitchen is very well equipped and perfect for even a demanding Chef ( as I am)
The reception with a bottle of Champagne, bottle of olive oil from the neighbouring company of olive oil, (well worth the visit and to get a bottle for the daily salads) and home made jams from Marie Hélène, with fruits from the property made us feel very special. Then the daily delivery at 8:00am every morning of the baguette, from the best boulanger of Saint Remy was such a nice touch !
The huge swimming pool area also is fitted with great lounge chairs, umbrellas and even a Hammock !
Obviously the gite is located in such a lovely area of Provence with great cities and villages ( a few among the Best Villages of France) within easy driving distance.
Well you can tell we loved it and we definitely will be back ! Sooner rather than later.
We loved it so much some family members have already booked it for their holidays.
Thanks to Marie Hélène and Eric Quintana who made our holidays so enjoyable

“Unbelievable Wonderful Outstanding”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If I could give more than a 5 for this place I would give it a 10. This place was so wonderful. We were there with another couple for 2 weeks and seriously, we didn't want to leave at the end of the two weeks. First, the house is beautiful and comfortable. Everything is modern and high tech and immaculate. One of our favorite things to do was go to the local markets, buy amazing food and then cook in the wonderful kitchen. Secondly, the setting is so very wonderful. Close to St. Remy, but out in the country where it was peaceful and serene. Just being able to sit on the patio looking over olive trees and wonderful flowers was worth the stay. Third, the owners. What can I say. They were absolutely wonderful and gracious and so friendly. Eric and Marie-Helene are the ultimate hosts. They give you plenty of space, but are available whenever you need something. We all had a terrific time together since we all love life, good food, and good wine. Every morning there would be fresh bread on our doorstep. There is no better bread than French bread. When you arrive you get a bottle of wine and a jar of Mare-Helene's fig jam. When we left, we felt as if we were leaving good friends instead of just someone who rented us the house. The location is perfect for day trips to many of the local villages and markets. It is also perfect for those days when you want to just relax, read, nap, and drink some wine. The pool is magnificent, but being there in mid-May, the water was a little chilly. Didn't stop us from napping by the pool on beautiful sunny afternoons. I write many reviews and many are positive, but I could recommend this beautiful house and beautiful hosts to the utmost. I certainly look forward to going back.

“Wonderful slice of paradise”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Charming yet elegant, this home is simply lovely. The kitchen is large and airy, opening onto a large terrace with an unobstructed view of the orchard. The kitchen is well-equipped (better than my own home, perhaps!). The living area is comfortable with a DVD and TV, for those who prefer to lounge at home reading their generously placed Coffee Table books. The furniture is elegant and simple. The beds are comfortable and large, the towels fluffy and luxurious (something not often found in ~Europe, even at lovely hotels). The main bathroom has loads of light, strong water pressure from a rainforest shower head.

We were greeting each morning by fresh baguettes, which were devoured with homemade fig jam and olive oil (both made by the owner and I wish they sold them on the property)!

The pool is huge and sparkling and there is a wonderful BBQ area and bar, strategically positioned. Every detail has been accounted for (even the gate accessing the pool area has a child proof latch).

We loved the fact that we could spend our days touring and driving and exploring, then return to a wonderful garden and enjoy dinner outside while the kids play soccer on an enormous field!

THE HOSTS - they are wonderfully charming and hospitable and make you feel as though you are visiting old friends. They are always available and ensure than all guest needs are met. Recommendations for restaurants and vineyards generously given.

We have rented dozens of homes in France and this was our favorite, can't wait to return!

“A perfect place to stay in Provence!”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in La Picholine for 9 nights in Oct 2015 and have to agree with previous reviewers, the villa and property in general is exceptional and a credit to the owners Eric and Marie-Helene. Their attention to detail was amazing and there was nothing more we needed to enjoy our stay. The wine, fig jam, olive oil and fresh baguette every day were lovely touches along with our hosts' concern that everything was okay and offers of assistance.
The location is ideal, central to many of Provence's beautiful sites and locations, just a short drive or healthy walk into St Remy one of the best villages in the area. Make sure you visit the Wednesday market.
We will certainly be aiming to return and spend time at La Picholine again.
