“Dream Chateau in Provence ”

Just got back from Villa Théophile having spent a wonderful week with friends and family at this beautiful property. Many thanks to the very gracious owner, Phillipa, the hospitable caretakers Ian and Jon and not least the chef, Magali who provided 2 great 4-course dinners!

This is the 6th Chateau I've booked over the last 10 years and this is by far the best for many different reasons:

1. The location, in the middle of hundreds of acres of vineyards in Cotes du Rhône on a hill just outside a beautiful old village, is spectacular.

2. The property is beautiful and the attention to detail is fabulous. Everything is very well laid out - the pool is next to the Bar-B-Q which is next to the kitchen. On those beautiful summer evenings in Provence, there's nothing better than wining and dining outdoors on the terrace overlooking the beautiful countryside.

3. The bedrooms and bathrooms, just like the rest of the house, have everything you need. Although it's a very old property, all the amenities everywhere, are super modern and function extremely well.

4. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for both indoor AND outdoor cooking. We were 12 adults, a teenager and an infant. A cot and high chair were provided for the infant. There was a pool alarm, which was great security, plenty of outdoor and indoor games, lounge chairs and couches/umbrellas for total relaxation.

I could go on but there lacked for nothing! Needless to say, the week went by exceedingly quickly!!

“Exceptional value, highly recommended”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were a group of 13 adults, visiting the region to enjoy the local food and wines, specifically the Chateauneuf du Pape.
This glorious house was ideally placed and provided a wonderful base for our stay. Villa Theophile has spacious bedrooms, beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard. The bathrooms are modern and very luxurious with plenty of towels and toiletries. The kitchen is extremely well equipped.
The villa is set in lovely grounds with a large outdoor seating area around the pool, where there is also a fantastic BBQ and covered area with a large table and chairs for eating outside.
There is a care taker living on site, in the basement who is English and happy to help with any problems. The owner was very helpful and prompt when answering our questions.
We cannot recommend this house enough, it was clean and proved very good value for money.

I went on a week yoga retreat at the Villa Theophile. Everything was beyond expectations. The actual villa is absolutely stunning, very comfortable and incredibly beautiful. The hosts so lovely, helpful and really friendly. The food was also very delicious. I would recommend this place to anybody, wether it is a family and friends holiday or in a group.

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!
