Guest reviews

July 2023

We absolutely loved our week at Chez Christelle.

We were warmly greeted by Mme Chabaud and happily told to text her if we needed anything. We didn't need to. The house is a beautiful, spacious 18th Century treasure trove and is the real provençal dream. It's full of old furniture and art and has been in the family for generations. If you are looking for a fully modernised, shiny, soulless place, this isn't for you. But the kitchen is fully modernised and well equipped, the bathrooms are fine and the beds are comfortable. The gardens are enormous with a beautiful olive grove, great pool, enough seating for everyone and lots of fun to be had at the boulodrôme and playing table tennis. St Didier is a sweet village with two bakeries, bars and everything you need. One of the bakeries made us an unbelievable chocolate cake for a birthday. Provence Holidays and the owner were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you from us all. It was very special indeed. If you're looking for Quiet & Peace, this is your place.

Beautiful grounds and French bastide

We were very pleased to revisit this traditional french house with friends and our grandchildren after postponement due to covid. We believe we were the first group in so a few hitches with pool alarm and losing power during a storm. Help from the family and particularly Simon, with local knowledge, sorted these things out. This house is so charming and housed us so well, it is very spacious. The kitchen has everything you need (although some more cups would have been nice) and we cooked in quite a lot as we were such a large group. For me the highlight is the gardens, if only you could bottle the beautiful aromas that you smell as you open the shutters in the morning, jasmine, honeysuckle and mature trees, olive and lombardy poplar or cypress? providing shade and perfume. Fabulous pool, well looked after by the pool lady who visited on Tuesday. Lots of tables to chose from outside for your morning coffee. We walked into St Didier easily and some of us walked up to Venasque, its a bit of a hike up, but we had a lovely lunch in one of the village restaurants afterwards overlooking the stunning view across to the hills.

Chez Christelle was perfect. We especially loved the pool. It was fantastic that it was cleaned half way through our stay. A lovely touch. Every room is beautiful. The Christelle family are kind and helpfull.
