Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!

Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

The Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

  • Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

    Posted by Catherine on 28/09/2017

    The estate is gorgeous! The furnishing is tasteful, and so is the interior in the bath rooms, lobby, bedrooms etc. The outdoors, garden, front yard, backyard, pool area, - all are extremly charming. You will feel like a king/queen/princess here! For a once-in-a-lifetime experience; you'll find it here.

  • Many thanks for a tremendous stay at the Chateau!

    Posted by Gunner A on 08/12/2011

    Many thanks for a tremendous stay at the Chateau! My family was thrilled with your magnificent home and the beautiful surroundings. We were also immensely impressed with the extremely friendly and efficient staff of Justin, Julian, Gerta (sp?), Lavinia and Nina. They were superb. And, of course, you as a very welcoming and charming hostess made a great impression. Can / could you export the wine to the UK? It will never taste as good as beneath the plane trees watching the sun set, but a little slice of Provence in the English countryside is still nice. Best of luck with the rest of the summer! Kind regards,
