A wonderful week with superb accommodation, gardens and facilities all maintained to a very high standard.

A great location for both sightseeing and doing nothing relaxing around the pool.

Can't wait to come back!

“Bliss in Côtes du Rhône country”
Reviewed 31 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My week at the yoga retreat at Villa Théophile was like heaven on earth. The "château" Théophile was absolutely gorgeous and incredibly comfortable at the same time. It had a really positive and cozy feel. I enjoyed the eclectic, multi-cultural art throughout. The rooms are extremely spacious. The coffee machine was fantastic! We had the great fortune of the presence of the owner, Phillipa, for the week who was completely charming and delightful! We all absolutely adored her and all she did for us! She was extremely helpful with her suggestions, directions, etc. The location is beautiful (we were there at grape-harvest time) and convenient to many wonderful day trips.

“Villa Theophile--mansion paradise in the heart of Provence, France!”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I've traveled the world and stayed in many amazing places, but staying at Villa Theophile exceeded my expectations and was quite lovely. It will always be one of my all time favorite places! The French ambiance of the Villa Theophile and the location in the heart of Provence made its location idyllic because of its close proximity to all of the quaint and lovely surrounding villages and vineyards--many within walking and bicycling distance. The owner, Phillipa, made everyone feel welcome and went out of her way to cook amazing meals for our group of eleven, plus provided extra help whenever we needed it.

“Awesome and Perfect in EVERY way!”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

Our stay at Villa Theophile was phenomenal! I wouldn’t change a thing. It was so perfect in every way. As we headed up the hill from Vacqueyras, a huge home was visible up on the hill. We thought "This can't be where we are staying". Well, it was our home for the week and created an amazing environment for our yoga retreat. The Villa is set up on the hillside with amazing views of the valley and vineyards. Each room is beautifully decorated while still so comfy and inviting. The modernized bathrooms are fabulous. We enjoyed evening aperitifs by the gorgeous pool and dined by candlelight in the elegantly huge dining room. The gorgeous setting coupled with the elegance of the Villa made it all so special. What more could we have asked for?!! So many fabulous memories!

“Yoga, Food, and Wine a retreat for those who are not serious about yoga”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Villa Theophile was the site of our retreat. The house is beautiful with elegant decor and spacious bathrooms and bedrooms. We practiced yoga on grey and white marble tiled floors in the ballroom filled with light. The Villa is ideally situated for many interesting day trips. Phillipa is the most charming and gracious hostess. Her joyful smile brightened our day. She is also a fabulous cook. We enjoyed her appetizers by the pool and then all were seated in the dining room for more wonderful food. This is an incredible place to stay.
