We have just returned from a fabulous 2 family holiday at Le Chardon d'Or. Our host Andrew was incredibly helpful from start to finish, always prompt to respond to messages and full of useful advice and information - thank you for your patience!
Equally helpful was villa manager Karen - so lovely to have someone actually on resort to help with day to day queries, restaurant bookings etc.
The Villa itself exceeded expectations! Beautifully and cleverly designed inside and out, with plenty of space for everyone to relax and loads of extras to keep the children entertained on the rare occasions they tired of the pool!
Surrounded by beautiful gardens and stunning views this really is a very special place to stay. We certainly hope to return.
It’s great to have your generous review and to know that you all had such a good time. We are delighted that the villa and surrounding areas works so well for a large group, and a range of ages and interests. I very much look forward to welcoming you back, the vast majority of guests now (after 14 years) are previous visitors, indeed one group are closing in on a 10th stay!
Site agréable et maison confortable
everything was superb. karen and andrew were excellent hosts. karen was very responsive to all our needs we had a few minor problems but karen was quick to respond. we were there a month with numerous guests from the states.all were impressed by the quality of the house and the area.would definitely return.
A little slice of heaven!
We have spent many happy holidays at Le Chardon D'Or, it is utterly, utterly wonderful.
This year we had 3 decadent weeks for my 60th with friends and family and nothing could have been more special.
The villa is in an absolutely beautiful spot with fabulous views of the Luberon mountains and the picturesque hill top village of Mallemort which offers every amenity. There is a plethora of nearby villages with amazing provencal markets to choose from every day. We also love the wines and fresh produce from local farms and chateaux.
The villa itself is stunning, spacious and stylish, with many terraces to enjoy together or steal away to read a book. The villa is extremely well maintained and equipped; furniture, beds, etc, are supremely comfortable and showers are powerful and plentiful. The gorgeous pool is secluded but hilltop breezes offer respite from scorching summer days.
Fabulous local property manager, Karen, was on hand this year with an unplanned trip to A&E with one of the kids, staying until the early hours with knowledge, reassurance and inimitable good humour. She is an angel!
Le Chardon D'Or is the very best of all the self-catering villas, we have experienced over many years travelling through Europe and we are happy to return time and time again.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful property for a secure, private and thoroughly delightful holiday for all the family to enjoy.
Fantastic review, delighted you had such a superb family celebration - looking forward to welcoming you again soon!
Maison très confortable et agréable.
Bonne situation et bon accueil sur place.
Great to have such a positive review, particularly from a guest who has visited Pont Royal so many times before. We did some important upgrades in early 2018, including internal redecoration and some new outdoor areas, delighted these are so popular.
Lovely, large villa with stunning views of Luberon
We enjoyed two weeks in Le Chardon d'Or, the entire family filling all 6 bedrooms. Even with this many people, the villa has amble of space, especially outside with several terraces and decks. The pool area was busy during the hot Provence days.
Being inside the Pont Royal Golf Resort is comfortable, and gives you access to several outdoor activities for all ages. Obviously also world-class golf.
The area is magnificent, with wonderful villages like Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Les Baux de Provence close by. And easy access to Avignon, Aix en Provence, Arles, etc.
We highly recommend this quality house to larger families.
Many thanks for your very positive review, I am delighted that you had a great time and managed to see so much of Provence. I particularly appreciate your comments about space, we designed the villa and the grounds to ensure that people could both come together, but also have quiet space too. I look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
With a panorama of views to the Luberon and easy access to the Mediterranean, you’ll find yourself in a region famous for sun, food, wine, beautiful villages, dramatic landscapes and a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities.
The Roman cities of Avignon, Aix, Arles, Nimes and Orange are all just a short drive from the villa. Take in the remarkable amphitheatres, palaces, and attractions such as Pont du Gard and Les Baux.
Exceptional wines are produced locally, and in the many villages around Chateau neuf du Pape you’ll find memorable tasting tours.
The 'market circuit' rotates around local villages, where you will discover flowers, seafood, fruit, local meats and other delicacies alongside antiques, linens, and Provençal arts and crafts.
Sport lovers are well served by golf, walking, climbing, skiing, paragliding, fishing and most other activities. This is also a gastronomic heaven with an endless supply of fine eating venues from simple to Michelin; you have 5 restaurants within walking distance from the villa.
Other Activities: children's clubs, kids farm, drama etc.
Golf: The villa sits on Golf de Pont Royal, one of Southern France's most highly rated and celebrated venues. A fully stocked pro-shop, and 5-star clubhouse serves excellent food all day. It also has one of the most extensive wine cellars in the region.
A challenging and breathtakingly beautiful course, maintained to the highest standard, visitors are welcome throughout the year. In mid-October, Pont Royal plays host to the Masters event, for professional golfers, welcoming European tour pros.
The Provence and the French Riviera offer many excellent golf clubs, which almost all welcome non-members. Many of these golf clubs are less than one hour away from the villa. We recommend the Provence Golf Pass which offers a great value way to play the region’s best and most spectacular courses, full details on request.
