‘‘We have just returned from La Maison de Maitre with big smiles on our faces. Clean, stylish, comfortable. Perfect pool area, views and scenery absolutely stunning and the games room was a huge hit with our boys! The attention to detail and all the little extra touches like the welcome basket, made this a fantastic break away. Thanks so much Juliet and Deane, you were fantastic hosts. Sarah JULY ’16

‘‘I have never been to a place that is actually better than it was on the internet + I am very picky! I have also never been to a place that I would return to! I will highly recommend you to my friends. Thanks for making our first holiday with baby so easy + stress free’‘ Kirsty JUNE ’16

‘‘Loved it the first time we came, but were even more impressed this time. Lovely location, beautiful accommodation, attention to detail, outstanding! Claire JULY ’16

‘‘We particularly liked the arrival hamper, childrens’ play room, breakfast, information book, fully stocked kitchen even including cling film + napkins, thank you!’‘ Sarah JUNE ’16 ‘‘I really do not even know how to start to describe how beautiful this accommodation is!!! Suffice to say the previous reviews are a true reflection of what you experience. My husband and I stayed in the Coco Suite for 5 nights. As soon as we arrived it was like walking in to heaven!! Juliet and Deane are the perfect hosts, so helpful yet unobtrusive. The little extra details are beautiful…..a stocked welcome basket full of delicious staples. We planned so much but ended up doing close by sight seeing and then relaxed by the pool, did not even go out for dinner!! Juliet cooked us dinner which we ate outside whilst admiring the beautiful rolling hills…..one of the best and most memorable meals we have had in France. Our first trip to France was made more special as a result of meeting you and staying at La Maison de Maitre’‘ Lynne SEPT ’15

‘‘We have just spent two fantastic weeks at La Maison de Maitre, our first holiday with our 10 month old and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Vionnet suite has a lovely private outdoor space with BBQ, table & chairs, swing & slide. The communal areas are immaculate, the swimming pool has an incredible view, plenty of sun loungers and large umbrellas and it’s heated to a really nice temperate. We swam every day which had the added benefit of making our little one nap very well! There are even more toys in the games room & playground to keep children of all ages happy. Juliet and Deane are fantastic hosts and achieve that difficult balance between being available and helpful without being obtrusive. We enjoyed Juliet’s home cooking which we would definitely recommend as it’s a real treat. The surrounding area is lovely; it’s not too touristy but there is still plenty to see and do. We feel very fortunate to have spent two weeks here and we will be returning as soon as possible.’‘ Jayne JUNE ’14

‘‘We have just returned from a week at La Maison de Maitre, our first holiday with our 11 month old. I can’t fault this place at all, it is just fantastic – from the most stunning pool which overlooks the beautiful rolling hills of the French countryside, to the accommodation – a fantastic old barn which has been furnished to a very high standard – lovely comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and everything you could need when travelling with a baby. The grounds are beautiful – so well kept, and with a lovely childrens play area. They have really thought of everything – it’s clearly been a labour of love for them, and it shows – everything is immaculate. I very much hope we will be back soon! A first holiday with our little one (which I was slightly dreading) was simply brilliant!’‘ Sally JUNE ’14

‘‘What a stunning place with the most amazing views! Everything you need to have a very relaxed holiday with small children. I’d certainly recommend to anyone and we hope to return very soon! Juliet and Deane were fantastic – great food, lovely welcome pack and so helpful with everything.’‘ Georgie JUNE ’13

‘‘If you are looking for some much needed rest and relaxation, idyllic scenery, beautiful, first class, self-catering accommodation, plentiful toys for your little ones and some wonderful luxurious touches to make you feel special, then look no further than Maison de Maitre. This gem of a bolt hole, really does offer all this and a whole lot more, thanks to the wonderful design and hosting abilities of owners who literally leave no stone unturned when it comes to looking after their guests.
When you turn into the drive at Maison de Maitre, you really can’t fail to smile, it is simply stunning, and that was our reaction before we even got the guided tour! The accomodation is beautifully designed, ultra clean, and provides ALL the facilities you need for a stress free stay with little ones. What’s more, it boasts gorgeous soft furnishings (seriously worthy of inclusion in top interior design magazines), soft fluffy towel bales and towelling dressing gowns for each person, and quality beds and bedding that are beyond comfortable…when your head hits the pillow, a good night’s sleep is practically guaranteed (baby disturbances aside!) 
The facilities too, are spot on…a clean, warm pool, plenty of comfy sunbeds and squishy oversized cushions, large sun umbrellas, a cavern of children’s toys and games, chilled bottled water, a sandpit,two small play areas, one glorious frog pond, stunning, panoramic countryside views, a tranquility inducing decking area (very cool!), a barbecue per apartment, yummy meals cooked and served by Juliet (order a day in advance), the list goes on and on. Despite having two babies under the age of two years, my husband and I genuinely relaxed all week long and the kiddies absolutely LOVED it! It was without doubt one of our best ever holidays and we will definitely be returning!’‘ Lucy R JUNE ’13

‘‘We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the place + the well thought out touches everywhere on site. The welcome basket was a particularly nice touch and we loved the fresh flowers in the suite. You have the balance just right..discreet but always available, friendly + chatty too. We would love to return with friends + family.’ Jenny JUNE ’13

‘‘Our second experience at La Maison de Maitre was even better than the first. We spent a week in the “Tuscany of France” and cemented our love for the country stay. La Maison has all the luxuries that you will need as well the the magnificent setting of a French farm house overlooking beautiful fields and an old church in the distance that chimed it’s bells. Juliet and Deane are charming hosts and are ready to help with anything that you may need. They can organise dinner in the evening or bikes for a leisurely ride as well as letting you know what is available in the region. We stayed in one one of the appartments in the converted barn that has chandeliers in various rooms! On arrival you are greeted with a basket of goodies and a bottle of bubbly!! Very welcomed after a long journey from Paris! I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to experience the charm of this region of France.’‘ The Aussies JULY 2013

‘‘Myself, my husband and our 11 month old baby stayed at La Maison. We had a lovely week. The location of the gite is stunning, the facilities are great – we couldn’t want for more, everything is of a very high quality and taste. We stayed in the Coco suite which was lovely. Decorated to a very high standard, clean, spacious and very well equipped. We also sampled Juliet’s 3 course meal on our first night which was delicious. I would highly recommend La Maison – enjoy!’‘ Julia JUNE ’13

‘‘A fantastic holiday in a beautiful peaceful setting. The renovated barn is immaculate and classy with everything you could need, incl equipment for children (prams, baby baths, bottles, cutlery etc). We hired all three appartments for our family of 8 adults and 3 young kids aged 2, 3 and 6. We loved all being together yet having our own space. Everything is provided and good quality; bed linens, towels, pool towels all provided, with a mid-week change. The owners are very friendly, and available on site. Their cooking it is fantastic! It was great to know they were on hand if you need anything. They were discreet and non-invasive. The pool is fantastic 12m, bigger than normal holiday villas, and a nice temperature, the safety cover is fast to close and very secure so you know the children are safe. There is a fab games room in the ‘cave’ by the pool, with boule & darts for adults and lots of games and toys including pool toys, for the kids. DVDs and games in the accommodation, and a big children’s playground onsite, and a safe pond with frogs. Everything has been thought of here! It was so well thought out in every aspect, the children all had a ball. The local area is ‘upmarket rural’ – tidier than other areas like Provence. It has many sunflower fields so is worth an explore in mid-summer – but I can recommend just settling in at La Maison de Maitre with a good book, wine (you might be able to buy some from Dean and Juliet with notice) some bread and cheese (or Dean and Juliet’s fantastic catering) and bed in by the pool! It is very hard to find any criticisms! We would definitely go back as it’s very hard to find accommodation of this quality to fit a big group.’‘ Carole AUGUST 2013

“Stunning – ‘Mr & Mrs Smith boutique’ for families” This was the first holiday we,ve had with our baby (7.5 months old) and we can honestly say that we could not have been happier with our choice. As the title suggests, the apartments and set up are both of a high quality, and offer almost everything you would need as a family. The apartment was fantastically maintained, clean and with everything you should need, (including a kitchen rather than kitchenette). The pool and grounds are just as beautifully maintained as the apartments with plenty of space and activities for kids. The welcome pack was really useful for the first night/morning.
We had two evening meals prepared for us – both were tasty, filling and to an excellent standard. We would fully recommend this to anyone – we loved it. Christian JUNE ’13

‘‘A beautiful relaxing holiday in Paradise. La Maison de Maitre is a really beautiful place. We had a very relaxing holiday just spending time around the pool and in the grounds. The owners have thought of everything that a family would need + really go the extra mile. The toy room by the pool is a brilliant thing to have as a break from being in the sun + bottled water much appreciated. The hamper is a lovely touch especially as it contains home made organic plum jam from the garden. We also sampled Juliet’s delicious home made plum + chocolate ice creams! La Maison de Maitre really does feel like a luxury holiday whilst catering for a family’s needs. Coco is decorated in a beautiful + stylish way + feels spacious. As for the views, they are breathtaking. We didn’t want to leave and will definitely be returning soon! Liz B AUG ’12 (from Trip Advisor)

‘‘An amazing family holiday. We spent a long time deciding where to go on holiday + I would highly recommend La Maison de Maitre. The owners are very welcoming + obviously work very hard to provide everyone with a luxurious holiday. Lartigue is beautifully decorated + very well equipped. The children (aged 7, 5 + nearly 2) were happy to stay at the gite for most of the stay + loved the pool which was equipped with all the inflatables any child could wish for. They all slept until 8-9am every morning which was incredible as we came away feeling totally revived!. We had dinner prepared for us on our 1st evening which was a real treat and delicious. Also great benefits were supply of cold (bottled) water by the pool + change of towels 1/2 way through the week. We will definitely be going back in the future. You have to see the views yourself to appreciate just how stunning they are!’‘ Kate H AUG ’12 (Trip advisor)

‘‘An idealic family retreat. Lartigue was the most beautiful property we have stayed in during our many years of visiting France. Spacious enough for a young family of 4 and catered for all our needs including everything needed for a 4 month old baby. The grounds were immaculate and the pool was fantastic, the owners have thought of everything needed to entertain children, lots of pool toys, outside play area, and even a covered area for rainy days. Although in the high 30’s we were all comfortable in the villa as it stayed cool. the owners themselves were very discreet but available if you needed them, (a very friendly couple) and cooked the most fabulous evening meals. The property was very clean, fresh and lovingly maintained. There was plenty to do in the surrounding areas and very informative information packs were provided in the property. We would highly recommend this property and may very well be booking for next year as it really is a home from home (but with better weather!)’‘ Jackie AUG ’12

‘‘Baby-parent heaven! The minute we arrived we knew we were in for a special week. Every last detail had been thought of, and the location and setting was incredible. We spent a week with our 1 year old + parents-in-law and I can honestly say that everything completely surpassed my expectations. All the baby equipment you could possibly need was provided. Beutifully decorated + designed to the highest standard. We treated ourselves to dinner and breakfast the day we arrived and the food was excellent. I have already drafted plans for next years trip and hope we can organise to make the reservation before the whole summer gets booked up. Highly recommended!’‘ Amelia JULY ’12 (Trip advisor)

‘‘Thanks for the fantastic support you were to us throughout the week and especially at the beginning when we didn’t have a car, it was brilliant!’‘ Karen + Martin JUNE ’12

“La Maison de Maitre was the perfect place for our wedding. Thank you for being such an important part of our exceptional year!” Hannah + Jean-Paul JULY ’11

‘‘Wedding venue par excellence! The hostess + her husband were gracious + welcoming to the clans that descended on this beautiful hillside house. Immaculately decorated + furnished. Classy + tasteful in an understated way. A superb venue for any kind of reception surrounded by sunflower fields, vineyards + plum orchards. The atmosphere is tranquil, restful and like a good French wine, something you just can’t get enough of. Very highly recommended.’‘ Photographer VDubbman July ’11 (Trip Advisor)

“How lucky we found this place! What a warm welcome, wonderful meals, fantastic view, immaculate grounds with an excellent decked area to enjoy a drink or two watching the sun go down and a fantastic games room too. Don’t leave without a look in the little gift shop! We hope to return in the near future” Claire & Jason JULY ’10

“We arrived tired, stressed + irritable, but very quickly made ourselves at home. La Maison de Maitre has extremely welcoming, exceptional accommodation with everything provided and immaculately maintained. After just a week we left relaxed, refreshed and very happy!” Trish & Kev 2010

 “Keep it exactly as it is. Everything was wonderful, and the little touches like fresh flowers and Champagne in the fridge are just lovely” Daisy & Steve JUNE ’10

“We had a very special time here on honeymoon. The only thing that would make it better is another week! Can’t fault anything” Katherine & Gary OCTOBER ’10

 “We had a lovely holiday, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone…exceeded expectations with facilities, helpfulness + advise.” Chris + Kate AUGUST ’10

“The most relaxing holiday since we had the girls! They loved the pool inflatables and games room! Superb location and I do agree that the pool + rooms are comparable to luxury boutique hotels we have stayed in. We were pampered by massage services and home cooked meals…our stay was truly perfect. We were really sad to be leaving and vow to return” Laura & Charlie AUGUST ’10

“Absolutely loved it + appreciated all the little touches like the welcome basket, quality bath products, bath robes etc and also loved the bath!!! Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Only wish we had booked for longer…” Jennie SEPT ’10

“We loved the luxury feel + attention to detail – fluffy towels, robes, ribbons, flowers, toys for kids. We have travelled the world and never considered coming back to stay in the same place until now. One of the best meals/nights out we have had. Totally unique to sit in such a lovely setting on our own and be served a beautiful meal”
Suzanne & Gary JUNE ’10

“..it was everything we hoped it would be; relaxing, beautiful surroundings, luxurious accommodation…made us want to stay in more than go out – very rare…such an idylic place to stay, can’t wait to visit again!” Caroline & Jonathan ’10

2009

“If you love relaxation, a super warm welcome and after service by your host, this amazing property is most definitely for you. It is comparable with 5 star boutique hotels we’ve stayed in from the ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ books. This however doesn’t carry the 5 star price tag. We will most definitely be returning!” Clarkie JUNE ’09

“We found the perfect place for our honeymoon when we booked at La Maison de Maitre. An idyllic setting, with a touch of luxury – somewhere to really relax and unwind with all the finishing touches you’d see in glossy lifestyle magazines! 
The welcome we received when we arrived was the perfect start to our stay and the hospitality offered throughout was fantastic. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the pool has an incredible view across the valley. 
Juliet’s fresh approach to self-catering was like staying in a boutique hotel, but having the freedom to do as you pleased.” Catherine B MAY 2009
