Vintage Travel

Client Reviews for La Demeure de Gilles


We really loved this special historic property. The outside dining provision was the best we have come across although the area around the swimming pool could be improved a little. The interior was very spacious and comfortable. The owner was very helpful but a knowledge of French is useful. Fantastic position in the centre of town.

We had one of our best ever holidays here. We stayed for 2 weeks in August (yes it was hot, so the pool was invaluable, as were the indoor fans) but managed to avoid the August crowds in this delightfully unspoilt area. There were 9 of us including 3 children and we had 3 cars so the private parking facility across the road from the villa was essential and a welcome surprise. The villa provides enough space for children to have a great time and for adults to get some privacy, and is well furnished. Essential shops (boulangerie, patisserie, bar, pizza take away) are less than 50 yards away, and the locals are very welcoming. The Vintage Travel rep was impressive at sorting out a few minor glitches.

We had a great time and always think that Vintage Travel and the properties that we have stayed in with VT have been outstanding and we will certainly be using you again in the future. Thanks.

Mme Jacques was very welcoming and kept in contact while we were in the villa - a charming and very helpful lady. We used all the village shops and everyone was welcoming and interested in our group. Butcher was particularly helpful in suggesting meat for the two BBq's we had. David in the next door but one building, the Pizza/Tapas restaurant, gave us excellent service and a delicious meal. We had a superb family reunion/ 70th birthday celebration in the villa.

House and location were great and the owners are very nice people. We had a lovely holiday. One small point for reference - Any vehicle approaching 6 feet tall (most large 4x4's) won't fit in the garage due to the door mechanism, angle of ramp and entrance height. Whilst this didn't affect us, it might take the shine off someone's holiday if they can't use the garage.

We had a wonderful stay... lovely town, lovely house! Merci

A group of 11 Australians came and stayed in this wonderful house and village. We fell in love with it all at first sight. The house was perfect for us to get together or to have some space to ourselves. The village people were very friendly and helpful. The countryside and neighbouring villages and towns are stunning and the markets fantastic. This area is all it's cracked up to be! Merci Madame Jacques et au revoir.

As a group of friends who love to bike, we found Caromb and your lovely house the perfect place to call "home" for 2 weeks. We enjoyed sharing our daily adventures on bikes, each night, around the patio table. Yet, we could always find a quiet place to read in solitude thanks to the expanse of the house. Many suppers were prepared in your kitchen! Merci beaucoup & au revoir!

We've had an absolutely marvellous time here. As a group of old friends who meet up every year and stay in big houses, we rate this glorious house and setting among the very best. There is so much space, even for a large group, and the rooms are magnificent. With good weather and so many beautiful places to see in the area, we've had a great time.

We have all had an amazing stay in Caromb in this magnificent house! What a pleasure to have such a huge place to stay in with 2 families - so many rooms to choose from. We had not seen each other for 2 years and this was a perfect place for a reunion! The kids had a ball! Merci Mme Jacques for a wonderful 2 weeks.
