Dear Nick and Rosemary, We had a wonderful time staying at your beautiful mas! It’s lovely to arrive at a place and know you’ve made the right holiday choice! We really appreciated your restaurant tips!
Barbara & Bruce – Surrey, UK
Mas De Rosemarie is a very stylish, bucolic, setting at the epicentre of the Luberon. We had a fabulous time. Special thanks to Nick & Rosemary – we will get together for a wine next time!
Barbara & Frank – California, USA
Mas De Rosemarie is both serene and special in all its detail. Thank you !!!
Amanda & Ben – San Diego, California
Well, we knew exactly what we were letting ourselves in for as it is our second year in the Little House and nothing disappointed. We have had a truly fantastic time chilling around the pool, long leisurely “French” lunches and exploring the villages previously visited or revisited. We even had a friend, Julia, visit for a week all the way from Dubai as she loved the look of the property from last year’s photos. We will definitely be back! Thanks again for a perfect holiday.
Vikki, Rich & Julia – Flintshire (UK) & Dubai
We really don’t have much to add to previous entries are we had a perfect week here in the Little House – it couldn’t be better! We’ve had fun exploring the local villages. We ran out of superlatives to describe how wonderful the area is. We ate at several of your recommended restaurants and none disappointed. The whole experience of Mas De Rosemarie has been excellent, from the initial enquiry, to booking, to the wonderful welcome on arrival. Thank you so much – we will be back to visit soon we hope.
Mike & Mary – Staffordshire, UK
Thank you both for a fantastic and memorable stay at Le Mas De Rosemarie. We have enjoyed our time here in this beautiful villa enormously, with everything we needed to completely relax in comfort and privacy. This is the perfect base from which to explore the Luberon, but also we really liked being able to walk to the shop and play tennis locally in Joucas. The food at the
village bistro was very good value and it is a beautiful view. We really don’t want to leave, but we are already planning to return in 2015!
Peter, Jo & Josh – Cheshire, UK
Oh what a fabulous time we have had celebrating Dad’s 60th Birthday. Day trips out to the villages and the top of Mont Ventoux – and no dents in the car just yet. Do hope to come again someday to this lovely villa.
Rob, Lesley, Laura, Jessica & Sam – Manchester, UK
Well, who would have thought it! Here we are again back at the Bastide. We have had a great time in this lovely house and hope to return again … The Luberon is a lovely part of the world that draws is back again and again – a magical place. Thank you Nick & Rosemary for your attention to detail. We appreciated it and hope to return again soon.
Peter & Roz – Surrey, UK
Our second visit has met all our expectations: after some research, we cannot find another home away from home with the combination of Provencal beauty and comfort. Thank you for your attention to detail. This has made our visit here a real vacation!
Bill & Barbara – Florida, USA
What an amazing time we have had at the Mas! Everything has been thought out so well, we have had such a lovely week that we don’t want to leave – we so appreciate all you have done to look after our little ones as well! Thanks Nick & Rosemary, we will be back!
The Grafs & The Mumfords – Richmond, UK
Dear Nick & Rosemary, thank you for a relaxing week in your very stylish villa. We particularly enjoyed the outside space and veranda. Your recommendation for lunch at Café De La Poste was delightful.
Julian & Jane – Hertfordshire, UK
We enjoyed a lovely, relaxed week in this wonderful cottage at Mas De Rosemarie. It’s a beautiful area – lots to see – excellent food, wine and shopping. The house was perfect for us and
our two children – everything we needed – great facilities! Thank you Nick and Rosemary – we hope to come back one day
Mike & Anne – St Albany, UK
Another happy week in the Cottage. The market in Goult is worth a visit, albeit small. Café De La Poste is still a lovely place to people watch. The food Chez David in Roussillon was tops! Thank you again for your hospitality and recommendations.
The Raby Family – Dorset, UK
Thank you for being the perfect hosts. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at the little house, particularly the outside space and the pool. This is our third time in Provence and there is still so much to see and explore. We hope that this will not be are only visit to Mas De Rosemarie. Thank you for a wonderful summer break!
Katie, Paul, Olivia & Cordelia – London, UK
Thanks Nick & Rosemary, we have had such a sunny, relaxing, time in the Little House – it is such a lovely and well-equipped place to stay. Provence is certainly a beautiful area and your guide to the area has been so useful – especially your vineyard notes! Thanks again and I am sure we will see you again at some point.
Katy & Clive – High Barnet, UK
We’ll had a wonderful week in the Mas – the villa is beautiful as is the garden. The children all had a fabulous time in the pool. We enjoyed exploring the area and visiting Gordes, Roussillon and Bonnieux – a truly memorable holiday!
The Baxter Family – Edinburgh, Scotland
Dear Nick & Rosemary, thank you both for truly wonderful holiday at your fabulous house. We loved the swimming pool and the board games.
The Pitchers & The Hamiltons – Warwickshire, UK
Both Brian and I, and family and friends, have had such a lovely time here at the Bastide. And now we have another week to look forward to at the Little House. You have made us feel so welcome and nothing has been too much trouble – finding candles for the Birthday cake, helping us to move from one property to another! So glad that we have already booked for 2015!
Brian & Vida – Reading, UK
Nick and Rosemary, thank you for an idyllic week and for being the perfect hosts – both discreet and hugely helpful. We have really enjoyed getting under the skin of the Luberon. Best of all was the view from the Bastide in the late afternoon – the way the landscape turns orange reminds you that you could only be in Provence!
Matt, Fay, Indigo, Geoff, Jane & Lenka – London, UK
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. This area is so lovely and we hope to be back one day!
The Metcalfe Family – Tasmania, Australia
What a wonderful week holiday we have had at the Little House. Any less time and we could not have done justice to the area and the relaxing surroundings. The houses are perfectly situated for the visiting all the villages. Thank you for your excellent restaurant recommendations. We recommend the cookery lesson at Bastide De Marie: our daughter can now prepare langoustines with stuffed courgette flowers – they don’t cover that is school! Still so many places we didn’t make it to even in two weeks…
Angus, Laura, Kirsty – Ayrshire, Scotland
Our time has passed so quickly and we are sad to say goodbye to the beautiful countryside, great food and peaceful nights at the Little House. We are especially grateful for the safe, secure and private environment Mas De Rosemarie provided for our children. Despite the delights in the villages and wonderful daily dose of espresso, bread and ice cream, our children enjoyed spending time playing in the pool and grounds! What a wonderful time! We shall never forget our time here! Thank you again!
Bill, Lisa, Everett & Bethany – Maryland, USA
Thank you! We have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The cottage is beautifully done and very relaxing and peaceful. We have met some lovely people too. The food and service at Le Carillon in Goult was exceptional. We highly recommend hiring bikes in Bonnieux from Sunny Bikes – a really lovely man runs it. Great service. Many thanks again – we will be back!
Sarah, Simon, Isabelle & Amelia – Norfolk, UK
Thank you to Nick & Rosemary for ensuring that we had a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Our family has enjoyed a beautiful time here at the Bastide. You’ve thought of everything – the property is so lovely. We had a dream holiday and will return again. P.S. wonderful restaurant suggestions in your little booklet – very helpful!
The Allison Family – Ontario, Canada
Thank you so much for an amazing week – what a beautiful spot you have here and the cottage was brilliant and so pretty. We loved all the market and restaurant recommendations – Gordes & Goult are definite musts. Look forward to coming back next year and for a few more bottles of the Aureto wine!
The Williams Family – London, UK
This was our second visits to this wonderful holiday home. Rosemary and Nick certainly make it feel like home! Do follow the restaurant and market recommendations as they are all good. Will miss the croissant run up to the village with the early-morning view over the Luberon. Will be back for more soon! The perfect holiday destination.
The Batho Family – Oxfordshire, UK
We had an exceptional stay at the Little House. You made us feel welcome even before we arrived! We certainly enjoyed the wine and olive oil, as well as all the helpful advice. Many thanks!
Colin, Chelsea & Ada – New Brunswick, Canada
Back to the Little House for the second visit and it didn’t disappoint. There really is so much to see and do and even having spent a month here over the last year, there is still more. The lady in the Joucas village shop supplies bread and nice cheese and a meal at the bistro next door is a pleasant experience. Many thanks again Nick & Rosemary.
Roger & Jackie – Bedfordshire, UK
Oh my goodness what can I say? Even before we landed in France we knew we were in good hands! The care and communication in booking our trip was beyond compare. Upon arrival, both Nick and Rosemary welcomed us. The house is beautifully appointed and so easy to manage. We had several meals out and the kitchen had everything we needed. We loved every second of our stay – I would love to come back. I could write more that have already taken too much space in this lovely book! We would recommend Le Mas De Rosemarie to anyone who wants to visit the area. Nick and Rosemary’s book is full of suggestions. This is worth paying attention – restaurant and market recommendations are wonderful!
Constance, Jeff, Jeffrey & William – Providence, Rhode Island, USA
Dear Nick and Rosemary – well I guess your previous guests have said it all – so just to thank you for a very comfortable and restorative repose here at La Bastide! A well-equipped and sensitively designed house, we have been very spoilt and count ourselves very lucky. We hope to return!
Peter & Roz – Surrey, England
Had a great week in the Little House. It was very comfortable and in a great spot for exploring all the wonderful villages and countryside. Had a fab lunch at Auberge De Loube in Buoux, followed by a great walk to the hilltop ruins. Also loved Oppede Le Vieux, Bonnieux and Saignon.
Henry & Linda – Finchley, London
Thanks Nick and Rosemary so much for a wonderful stay – we loved every minute and will treasure the memories!
Stephan & Dalene – Johannesburg, South Africa
Thank you yet another lovely stay at Le Mas de Rosemarie. Two weeks was barely enough to enjoy the delights of this amazing place! We are already looking forward to next year’s visit!
The Carney & Jenkins Clans – Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA
We have enjoyed the most wonderful week here in the Bastide and really don’t want to go home yet! The weather has been beautiful, and one of the highlights of my day would be to open the shutters on the bedroom windows and to be greeted by that gorgeous view, the sun shining and blue skies. The peace and quiet has been amazingly restorative to the soul. To only be able to hear the wildlife and nothing else is very rare in our noise filled lives. Gordes is a stunning little village and deserves its reputation. Thank you so much Nick & Rosemary for all your attentiveness – we hope to be back one day and this time for two weeks. Many thanks and enjoy the summer!
Rachel, Gerry & Evie – Buckingham, UK
We are now back to work but we are still somehow in a holiday-mind set, remembering the great time in Provence and in your house … highly recommended indeed!
Markus – Dusseldorf, Germany
We had a lovely time in La Bastide and in Joucas – we absolutely adored the Luberon area. The beauty of the countryside was quite spellbinding – we have never visited France so early in the year and it was certainly an added bonus to our lovely week of sunshine. Many thanks and it was a pleasure to look after your house for a short while anyway.
The Cooke Family – Maidenhead, UK
April in Provence in the Little House was stunning and special for us. Thank you for an excellent stay. It was quiet and cosy here. We hope to return again!
Anna, Dylan, Linnea & Freja – London, UK
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We have thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and sheer beauty of Le Mas de Rosemarie. Perfectly situated with all comforts of home and a truly wonderful view!
Mary, Andy, Laura & Jackie – London, UK
Thank you Nick and Rosemary, we had a wonderful holiday! We hope that we will meet next summer. We have decided that it will be our tradition to visit Provence every summer! Thanks you for everything!
Lubov & Igor – St Petersburg, Russia
What a great week we have had in the Mas! Fabulous views every morning when you open those windows towards the Luberon mountains and quiet evenings sipping wine and looking at the beautifully lit garden and pool. Nick and Rosemary have thought of everything from an amazingly well equipped kitchen to beautiful linen and furniture. Cool all round!
Sam, Paul, Thomas & Beth – New York, USA
