The Rhone retreat is an ideal vacation spot. If you have dreamed of finding a charming village, in the middle of wine country and having a true french experience this is the place. The Rhone retreat offers wonderful accomadations for couples, families and friends traveling together. Each space is graciously appointed with furnishings to make your stay restful and relaxing. The gardens allow for private spots to enjoy the outdoors, relax by the pool, dine al fresco and spend an evening sipping wine and enjoying the stars.
The village is a great experience of real people doing real things. It’s small and charming, and offers a wonderful restaurant within walking distance; just be sure to make your reservations well in advance. Also, a local vineyard is across the street which offers delightful wine to enjoy during your stay.
Within driving distance, you will find historic ruins, fields of sunflowers and lavender, great shopping at the many marches located in the various nearby villages. It’s very convenient for day trips to the Luberon or to Avignon and Arles.
Ken is a gracious host. He is very charming and will guide you to all the best places. As a trained massage therapist, make sure to include a massage as part of your stay, it will leave your soul feeling refreshed and relaxed. He is also wonderful cook! Take the opportunity to venture out to the marche with him and select fresh ingredients for lunch and a take a cooking lesson with him.
My husband and I, along with our family and friends have been several times to stay over the years. We totally recommend Rhone Retreat for those who want to venture off the tourist path and find a charming slice of true french day to day life, in a beautiful setting.
