LIVRE d'OR

Hugh and Celina were wonderful hosts - very warm and generous with their time and had great suggestions for things to do and see while there. Our room was absolutely beautiful and the hospitality perfect. Breakfast was amazing! Hugh goes every morning to pick up fresh bread and pastries and he customised what he prepared each morning for us based on what we loved! We highly recommend their place to anyone looking to enjoy a peaceful, inspiring holiday in Provence.

As first-time Airbnb guests, we hoped that the good things we had heard were really true. Based on our lovely weekend at La Taulière, we'll be making it a habit. Hugh and Celina are special hosts, and made us feel like old friends instead of strangers. Our room was beautiful, the bed comfortable (a must) and waking up to the sound of the wind in the olive trees nearby was about as good as it gets. On top of the awesome breakfast, time spent appreciating their art and discussing the ideas behind it made this a memorable stay. La Taulière is just far enough out of town to make for peaceful evenings, but close enough to pop in to Maussane for dinner and back without much effort. Hugh and Celina had great suggestions for things to do and restaurant to try in the area, making it pretty effortless. Excellent all around! Thank you again Hugh and Celina!

Un petit bijoux au cœur de la Provence. L'accueil de Celina et Hugh est très chaleureux l'appartement est le plus beau lieu pour passer d'excellentes vacances. Un réveil avec le soleil levant sur les Alpilles- la maison décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Les chambres sont tous très confortables - la cuisine - très bien équipée -et le salon ont la vue sur les oliviers. Nous avons posé nos bagages et nous sommes sentis chez nous, comme dans une maison de famille. Nous avons bien profité de la proximité de Maussane, d'Arles et les après midis rafraîchissants dans la piscine! La gentillesse de Celina et Hugh et leurs enfants ont fait de ce séjour un moment inoubliable - de belles vacances.

 J'ai tout adoré! Hugh, Célina et leurs enfants sont de vrais amours, très attentifs au moindre de nos souhaits tout en étant discrets. Le petit déjeuner ultra complet est bien frais. Le lieu est tout simplement magique. Entre la Camargue et les Alpilles, l'endroit est parfaitement situé. N'hésitez surtout pas, romantisme et douceur de vivre sont au rendez vous. J’y retournerai c’est certain.

Un lieu magnifique! Nous avons rarement vu une maison de campagne provençale aussi belle. Hug et celine sont très gentils et très accueillants. Tous deux artistes, leur maison a un style original, et l'appartement est décoré avec beaucoup de goût. L'endroit est en plus une bonne base pour Arles (10 min), Avignon (25min), Beaux de Provence et Carrieres lumiere (10min), la Camargue à 1 heure... Même les magnifiques photos ne rendent pas l'atmosphère que nous avons trouvé. Nos filles ont profité de la piscine, heureuses. Super!!

What a dream! My wife and I spent the most lovely time in this exotic tent which turned out to be extremely comfortable and wild at the same time. Everything was perfect: Hugh and Celina are lovely people who make you feel at home, the breakfast was a 5 star experience, the outside bathroom is full of charm. The surroundings are spectacular and we visited a lot of places during our stay, but next time we want to spend more time just enjoying this marvellous tent and the swimming pool. The only difficulty we had was to climb up to the large hammock set up un the trees, but Hugh assured me he was going to make it easier for our next visit which will be very soon!

Meraviglioso. Sono stato ospite di Hugh e Celina per una settimana ai primi di luglio con la mia famiglia ed è stata una vacanza da sogno che consiglio vivamente sia per la bellezza del posto che per la cordialità dei proprietari.Purtroppo abbiamo potuto dedicare poco tempo al relax perché eravamo al centro di tante cose da vedere come Marsiglia, Arles e La Camargue ma ugualmente abbiamo potuto godere delle bellissima struttura architettonica che non ha tradito le sue tradizioni rurali e della quiete del giardino e degli uliveti circostanti. Celina e Hugh sono stati ospiti molto premurosi pronti a soddisfare ogni nostra richiesta. La casa è veramente bella e confortevole con molti richiami al suo passato rurale e con i suoi dintorni puoi immaginare di essere fuori dal mondo e dal tempo tanto la natura è rigogliosa ed incontaminata.

Our stay at Hugh and Celina's house was the highlight of our trip around France. The perfect combination of quiet farmhouse and comfortable luxury in Provence. We had beautiful weather, cooked amazing food and spent our afternoons swimming in the pool or walking the beautiful surrounding areas. Hugh and Celina were great hosts, welcoming us warmly and providing great tips for what to see around the area. Would return in a heartbeat!”

Probablemente, el lugar más romántico en donde vayas a alojarte en tu vida. Es literalmente INCREÍBLE, igual que Celina y Hugh, que son una pareja del más allá! No tiene desperdicio, recomendado 100%. Volveremos a ir SEGURO!

BETO, España   August 2016 

We had a wonderful two night stay at Provence Senses Romantic Retreat. Hugh and Celina have created an immaculate, unique and calm little retreat. The peace and quiet was just what we needed and we spent far too many hours hanging out in the treetop hammock with the cicadas singing all around us. The tent and private bathroom were absolutely beautiful, simple but luxurious. For us real luxury was the simplicity and calm - if we came again we would definitely stay longer. I am still dreaming of the gorgeous breakfasts!
