“Gorgeous-cannot wait to return!”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 30 novembre 2013 Séjour en septembre 2013
Google Traduction

We are two friends who stayed at The Main House for a week in September 2013. We loved our time there and did not want to leave. The access to the property via 4WD was quite do-able and added to the fun of staying there. Directions were accurate, easy to follow and thorough. The location is heaven, with surrounding views over the mountains. The house itself was lovely-spacious, great views, relaxing and cosy bedrooms, a wonderful well-appointed kitchen and living area, and a home theatre setup with a great choice of movies and TV series. The nearby village of Forqualquier was great-well worth our frequent visits. Rod, the owner, was warm, welcoming, accessible and hospitable. We are especially grateful to Rod for assisting us enormously with a planned overnight trip to Paris, We hope to stay there again, and would highly recommend it. Thank you for a lovely week and memorable stay, Rod.

Thank you very much for your kind words and for coming to La Colle. I was very happy to help you as I am used to being in strange lands and a little local help is always of an assistance, especially as you both came from Australia. I hope you both continue your global discoveries with great success.

“Enjoy the true colour in the South of France”
4 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 29 juillet 2013 Séjour en juillet 2013

Although Rod (the owner) gave us a 4x4 to drive the country road to the house, it was Okay to drive our own car (peugeot/308) in the high summer time.
Also The house was seen to be centre to everywhere. It usually take 20 to 40 mins to somewhere FUN...
Knowing the history of the house from Rod and his website was very inspirating too!
The welcome pack was a very good idea.
Last thing (A new interesting finding) is that - The water was seen to be some sort of spa water, good for your skin.

“Experience of a lifetime - not to be missed!”
5 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 23 juin 2013 Séjour en mars 2013
Google Traduction

As I sit here by the pool, sipping rosé, I am trying to come up with words to adequately describe our experience here at La Colle en Provence for the last four months.
There are so many things to say! Where to begin? At the beginning, I guess.
We arrived here at the beginning of March for a four month stay. This long term rental is new to Rod, the owner, so we were the first of hopefully many.
We were (somewhat) adequately prepared for the distance on a farm track from the nearest town, so we stocked up on groceries. We were highly rewarded for the drive up by the amazing views. Rod was gracious and welcoming and let us know he was here for us, but would also respect our privacy. We spent three days recovering from the jet lag of a 24 hour journey from Canada here to La Colle.
Upon arrival, I thought I wouldn't be able to do the drive on the track every day, but I did indeed get used to it as we travelled it a few times a day. Because of the trek up here, you get to experience the country side without hordes of people also enjoying it and it feels quite "exclusive". There is no noise here from traffic and words and pictures cannot capture the views of the Alps to the northeast, the rolling hills, the farmhouses in the valley below and the nearby town of Lurs perched on a neighbouring hill.
First on our list of things to do was to register our children in school. Rod was so helpful and patient with the process - even going down to the town hall for us to help straighten things out. This was above and beyond the call of duty and we couldn't have faced and dealt with the bureaucracy without his help.
Four months later, Rod and his two lovely neighbours have become our friends and we have so many great memories!
We have travelled to nearby (and far away) places from here and have come to the conclusion, somewhat belatedly that we really needn't have left the surrounding area of the department of Forcalquier. There is everything one needs here - old monasteries, roman bridges, bories, winding roads, a first class market and magnificent views, to mention a few.
After an amazing 10 day trip to Morocco, we couldn't wait to get "home" - I think this says it all. Our children have built forts here, raised tadpoles, picked cherries and enjoyed math instruction from the neighbour, Bob. All authentic experiences that they won't ever forget.
It is with great regret that we leave this haven of solitude and beauty. Hopefully, we continue to return here in the years to come....

It is so nice to have you stay and live in the house the way it was meant to be. A real family home. Seeing you explore and learn about the area over the past four months has been a real pleasure. The way you adapted to the vagaries of the weather this year and the surprises of country living has been fantastic. For you to be able to call The Main House your “home” says everything and justifies the years of continuous work. Thank you, and I will miss the daily football matches in the yard.

“An Idyllic Provencal Escape”
4 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 1 février 2013 Séjour en septembre 2012
Google Traduction

My husband, my 18 month old daughter and my in laws travelled to this beautiful place in September for a last taste of sunshine before our move to Canada. What a little piece of heaven. We were lucky in that we had the entire place to ourselves. It's remoteness added to its appeal and we felt we had the best of both worlds. We managed to see and do many of the things in the area and the only difficulty was deciding whether to explore another beautiful part of the countryside or spend the day relaxing by the pool. There is plenty to keep you busy should you decide to hibernate, with a little library, great children's games and toys for our little toddler, wi fi, tv etc. On that note I would like to say how accommodating Rod was with regards to our little one. He arranged for all the baby gear to be shifted to the Main House for our use. We didn't need to worry about a high chair, cot or toys. Anyone travelling with littlies knows what a difference this makes. There are also some lovely walks in the area and you do feel completely away from it all. We met Bob who lives on the property and we had some wonderful discussions and really enjoyed his company. He has a wealth of knowledge.

Access to the property does require a bit of an adventurous spirit but we certainly did not let it ruin our trip and saw quite a bit of wildlife whilst driving back and forth.

If you want to party on the town every night then I wouldn't recommend it but if you want a little place where you can relax in the peace and quiet, enjoy the sounds of nature at night and feel away from the hustle and bustle of city life then this is a great choice.

I remember our time there with such fond memories and only wish the time hadn't passed so quickly.

Thanks very much for your kind words. I am glade that you were able to relax so much after the stress of preparing the move to Canada, especially with a new little one.

Having raised my youngest here from two years old, I fully understand parents needs and many families have found this to have been an advantage to them.

I have now bought two car seats for the main family vehicle so that it will help during any transfers if the 4×4 is used. Just another little detail which could help. Wishing you the best with your new life.

“Beautiful house in nspoilt wild Provence with amazing views close to nature”
4 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 6 janvier 2013 Séjour en août 2012
Google Traduction

I took my family here from North Scotland in August. Not being put off by the loan of a 4x4 to access the beautiful house, we set off along a typical rural french hill track, spotting Roe Deer, Rabbits and Jays in the fields and oak forests along the way. It was a great adventure for my two little girls aged 6 and 4. We spent our days lazing by the gorgeous swimming pool watching birds of prey soaring or flocks of bee eaters flitting overhead. We took day trips to the surrounding area to see Roman remains, parks andGeological museums. We went kayaking and boating and had a wonderful time.

The house has a great vaulted ceiling livingroom which remained cool through the very hot days and our kids loved to play in here when it got too hot. It was a beautiful room to have. Of course the house had all the trimmings of a modern house in the way of internet and flat screen tv but wanting to be really away from all the modern things, we never switched them on!

The house was very comfortable and had everything in it that we could possibly want. We had a nice little hamper when we arrived from the owner and a lovely bottle of wine which went down very well watching the sunset over an amazing panorama.

I would really recommend this to people who have a spirit of adventure (just a little is required), for people who understand and love the countryside and all that comes with being in the real countryside. People who like wildlife and stunning views of scots pine and oak forests on mountains as far as you can see. There is a chance of seeing wild boar and deer as well as a multitude of other creatures. Go on do it!!

Thanks for being a guest that understands the purpose of putting a quality property in the middle of nowhere, yet is still accessible to all that Provence has to offer, from impressive cities to vast lakes.

The step through the doorway needs, as you say, just a little courage but once taken becomes a natural path. A path that can reward you with outstanding beauty plus a chance to wind down and resource. For those of us that are high performers this is especially valuable.

“Overpriced and unacceptable access issues to the property”
2 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 11 novembre 2012 Séjour en août 2012
Google Traduction

It was the second time to visit this lovely part of France and the weekly market in Forcalquier is the best we've been to.
The property was excellent although overpriced In my opinion. It was also very remote.
The wasps and midges were a nuisance in and around the house and we had a freak power cut on the first day caused by a mouse on the cable!!!
My main objection was access to the house. It was only after we'd paid the full cost of the rental, days only before our departure on holiday, that the owner contacted us to say the road was unsuitable for all but 4x4 vehicles and so we would have to leave our car some 2k away and reload into an old 4x4 provided by the owner, to access the house. The road was very rough indeed and we arrived after dark.
The explanation was that a flood had swept the road away but this was not a recent occurrence, and no attempt had been made to rectify or fill the large crater-like holes in the road.
On our departure we had to leave cash to pay for the fuel for the 4x4 and a compulsory cleaning fee!!!!

I am sorry that you now feel this way, especially since I received such a complimentary email from your partner and a lovely note in the guest book from another member of your party.

We are not responsible for maintaining the French road system, yet we appreciate that as this is the entrance to the hamlet we try to support it. The two free 4×4s are provided to assist you, as storms tend to wash away repairs each year. The 5000€ spent this year only covered the first half of the route and yet it is still feasible and many guests have used their own cars. The 15€ /£12 charged for petrol goes directly into the tank to ensure that the next guest has sufficient for their stay.

We share the countryside with a multitude of species, each year at least two different species are prominent. We market this property as “a lost in the countryside Farmhouse in 75 acres of grounds”. I am surprised that you did not also see: deer, wild boar, a multitude of rare birds and owls who love the odd country mouse.

The cleaning fee, paid directly to the cleaners, is our way of ensuring that they do their jobs properly : so that they make the beds, put out flowers, set up the free welcome packs, chill the water and milk, put out the wine & glasses plus other items and ensure that the large number of initial starter products are available to the property.

All of the above and much more is detailed in our main European site which is linked to every main correspondence with you, prior to and during your booking, including the link on this web site. The main site also has positive quotes from many guests of the past 12 years verifiable in hand written guest books.

The price charged for the one week in the high season is directly related to the cost of 12 months needed to sustain the property. This is “very subjective”. We have had many return guests and those that wished to stay longer. The past few years of continuous “desperation sales” and “two for one” offers has created unrealistic low prises resulting in many concerns going out of business. We are sorry that our continuous efforts have not pleased you.
