The
Experience

Two uncluttered spaces on the ground floor of this well-designed house surrounded by smooth lawns, masses of lavender and dreamy views to the Luberon hills. You have your own, private entrances: find tiled floors, natural colours, plenty of space and a bit of a wild floral theme going on in wall hangings and headboards above decent beds. Kitchens have all the kit you need and each have their own secluded garden spaces (couples only so delightfully quiet). Owners are on site too: Guylaine is an artist from Paris and Franck is a business consultant, harvesting his own olives, extracting essential oil from his lavender plants and producing honey from his bee hives. You could just laze the days away by the lavender-lined pool, but there’s so much to see and do in the area: glorious walking and biking, wine-tasting at local vineyards, famous villages such as Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lourmarin and lovely, lively Aix-en-Provence with its cathedral, galleries and bookshops, less than 30km away. The pretty seaside town of Cassis and the celebrated limestone calanques are only an hour’s drive.

Reviews

Lovely well presented cottage in beautiful gardens. Ideally situated to easily get to all the must see places in Provence. Very remote and peaceful if a bit difficult to find and the access road a bit bumpy. Hosts helpful and friendly.

Ron, Portland, dorset

This absolute gem is simply heaven on earth. This was our second visit here...we never revisit anywhere..but made the exception for this gorgeous gite. It has everything you could possibly need and is super stylish and comfortable both inside and out...plenty of places to relax in the sun and shade and a fabulous pool too. Franck and Guylaine are the perfect hosts and are very knowledgeable about the locale giving great advice of the best and most beautiful places to visit. We will be returning without a doubt and cannot recommend this holiday retreat highly enough.

Tracy, Nottingham

Another wonderful two week stay, thank you very much Franck and Guylaine. This is our third visit to Rognes and we loved every minute of it, a real home from home. The gite and its setting is idyllic. The two bedroom gite is equipped with everything you need. The gardens at the house are also perfect for relaxing in with an aperitif before dinner! The swimming pool is great for cooling off in late afternoon . The location of the gite is great, well placed near to many hillside towns and villages. A real must stay gite.

An absolutely lovely place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. We have been many times and visit every year. The owners are very helpful and friendly and the gite is beautiful. The surrounding area is fantastic with some spectacular places to visit.

Mandy, Oxford

Beautiful stylish accommodation. Very pleasant and helpful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Loft and would like to return.

Wendy, Aberdeen

Guilayne and Frank are the perfect hosts!!! They are discrete and very helpful and recommend you many places. We rented the Annexe but due to availability, we we moved to The Cabbanon. The gite is beautiful, spacious and calm. The terrace is perfect to relax. Insist you can find everything you need. The garden and the pool are gorgeous even if we couldn't use the pool. La Bastide des Amandiers is close to many must places to visit in the surrounding urea. We would definitely come back again and recommend it to family and friends.

Sonsoles, Madrid

We stayed for our first week in the Annexe but due to availability we moved to the Loft for our second week. This gite is also beautifully and tastefully furnished and very well equipped with a nice high ceiling which gives the lounge/kitchen a very light and open feel. The view from the lounge window is lovely. The gite is very well located in a beautiful area with an easy drive to the Luberon and Aix en Provence, which is a must see. The walk up to the top of the hills behind the house is well worth the effort. Great gite, great location and very charming hosts - we shall be back.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Guylaine et Franck Barthelemy

  • Aix-en-Provence is pedestrian friendly and full of squares, fountains and markets. You can wander, drink a glass of Rosé, enjoy the Provençal air, have a more cultural approach with the Museum Granet, Cézanne workshop, or the Cathedral “Saint-Sauveur”
  • Avignon, charming fortified city, offers old alleys and the Cité des Papes. Enjoy the amazing view of the Avignon famous bridge. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is a little “Provencal Venice”, where you can find incredible antiques in the Sunday market.
  • Charming villages of Lubéron. I will share good addresses; restaurants, ice-cream maker, vineyards, art galleries etc, and the best walks around. Bikes are available for those who wants to enjoy a lovely ride just before the sunset.. and the aperitif!
  • Alpilles, a heaven on earth surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. You will find Saint Rémy’s village where Van Gogh painted famous canvas, as well as the Cathédrale d’Images aux Baux de Provence!
  • If you have the courage to go bit further, you can visit La Camargue and its white horses(1h), Cassis and les Calanques (1h), Arles, its Arenas and le Pont du Gard (1h) or even the splendid Verdon Gorges (1h30).
  • If you prefer a "Farniente day", you can simply pick up your baguette and croissants at Rognes, our charming little village, sit at one of the café terrace or come back and enjoy the swimming pool!
