Fantastic house – beautiful setting gorgeous pool
From the moment of arrival you know this is going to be a special holiday. Juliet & Mike are wonderful hosts and think of every detail (eg there are mosquito plugs in rooms & UK/Europe adapters, cleaning products for your stay). We were met with a welcome pack of delicious local produce and some essentials to get started. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and great for those who like cooking. There are three outdoor seating areas – 2 terraces and the pool area with a lovely canopied seating area and loungers. One terrace is for early morning and evening and the other covered terrace for during the day. The house itself is beautifully restored with lots of attention to detail. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds and good quality linens and are ensuite. We were so happy here that we have returned twice since our first visit 😀 Very highly recommended.
Excellent House and Facilities
5 out of 5 stars
I am reluctant to write this review because it will help spread the word about how good Villa Rudel is and l will have trouble booking it again. The house presents even better than it looks on the web. It has every facility you could want. Very clean and well presented. Juliet and Mike are great hosts – very welcoming and very kindly provided bread, milk ,tea,coffee and especially other essentials of wine and beer on arrival. The house is a great base for exploring numerous lovely towns in the area. Nothing to fault and would highly recommend Villa Rudel

“Fantastic house – the best house we have visited in 25 years visiting France! Sympathetically refurbished. We loved the spaces inside and outside the house – the different areas to sit outside, providing shade when needed were perfect. Fabulous pool and gazebo, lovely terraced landscaping. We were a party of 3 generations and everyone was very happy. The most striking aspect is the thoughtfulness of the hosts – from the welcome pack to the mosquito plugs to basic kitchen supplies. Idyllic – already planning our next visit! “

Stylish, stunning gem of a villa!
Villa Rudel has something for everyone no matter how old you are. The owners have thought of everything so you can relax knowing that your kids are having fun at all times leaving you time to socialise in the beautiful communal areas or find a space to be alone and really unwind.
The house boasts 4 very cool bedrooms which are all en suite. Everything works and you can’t fail to have a good nights sleep. The lounge and kitchen have everything you need and there are very clear instructions to make sure everything works.
Outside are two sunny or shady tables to eat and the BBQ is a design triumph (I have already ordered one). Perhaps our favourite area was the pool located slightly above the house with a great Ibiza style chill out zone and lots of sun beds to relax on. The pool is a great size for keeping fit or playing games with the kids – and it felt very safe. Just a perfect focal point for families to enjoy their time here. There are also bikes, a table tennis table, darts and a gym!
We really appreciated the effort the owners have made to make a home from home which feels really contemporary and comfortable. The decor is subtle, sublime and absolutely spotless. The attention to detail is better than a posh hotel without any of the pretentiousness.
What was also great was the very generous welcome pack of locally sourced goodies which were delicious. There is also lots of very useful information about where to go and what to do. The kayaking is a must as well as a tour of nearby Cordes Sur Ciel.
Villa Rudel is without a doubt the best villa we have ever stayed in and can’t wait to go back. A total joy.

Great in every respect!
Fantastic venue for a family holiday. Beautiful house – really well equipped with lovely pool and great outdoor facilities – in a stunning part of France (gorgeous countryside, not too touristy). Lots to do at Rudel and further afield, plus plenty of shops and restaurants within half an hour’s drive. No complaints!

“Villa Rudel was just delightful, we visited with our daughter, husband & our teenage grandchildren , we loved the area , the villa was perfect catering for everyones needs quite a tough ask given we so many differing age groups, we had a very happy & relaxing time & loved the swimming pool area where we spent a good deal of our time. We hope to return.”

“A great house, tastefully furnished, brilliantly equipped (good kitchen and bathrooms) and in a beautiful location. Fantastic outside space and pool area with masses of seating, a choice of shaded or sun-soaked eating locations and plenty of games/activities to keep three generations busy. Stunning countryside and few tourists when we visited, although local towns and villages still buzzing. Fab location for a relaxing family holiday.”
