Was für ein tolles Wochenende in einem wunderbaren, bis ins kleinste Detail geschmackvoll dekorierten, authentischen Haus! Wir waren eine Gruppe von vier Personen (1 Paar und zwei Freunde) und das verlängerte Wochenende hätten wir nicht besser verbringen können. Die Dachterrasse ist mein persönliches Highlight, sie lädt ein zum Grillen, relaxen und sonnen. Man fühlt sich wunderbar abgeschnitten, obwohl man mitten in der Stadt ist. Auch der Service war wundervoll. Louise hat einfach alles bis ins kleinste Detail durchdacht (nahegelgene Geschäfte für was man so braucht während eines Kurzurlaubs, Fahrräder und andere Vorschläge für Ausflüge und sogar Strandtücher!). Wir haben uns rundum betreut gefühlt (ohne Aufdringlichkeit, weil alles auch einfach im Welcome-Booklet stand), was ich von einer AirBnB Unterkunft eigentlich gar nicht erwarte. Ich bin begeistert und komme bestimmt wieder! :)
We, a group of 4, were enchanted with this beautiful and very tastefully renovated house in Pezenas. The terrace was a bliss and the town gorgeous!
We were also impressed how well equipped the house was and how clean! Last not least, the host had carefully thought of everything we would need during our stay and welcomed us very warmly with a generous welcome basket with regional products, maps and good suggestion on activities in the area…you just needed to pick what to do.
I would say a top recommendation!! We will certainly return to Porte22
We loved everything about Porte 22. The house is spacious, comfortable and full of character. Louise provides everything you could possibly need, as well as some lovely local treats on arrival. There are also plenty of local maps and information provided. Pézenas is a wonderful town with amazing shops and restaurants and it is all just a few steps away from the house, which we found really useful. There was plenty going on even though it was early in the season and the Saturday market was fantastic. Even though you are right in the middle of town it was still really quiet at night, so we all slept brilliantly. Louise communicated really well with us and made a lot of effort to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall we strongly recommend Porte 22. You will love it!
Louise was unable to meet us but Patty was wonderful. Full of helpful hints on restaurants and even a realtor as we are considering moving to France. The apartment is lovely. even though it was early March we managed to spend a few sunsets on the upper terrace with a lovely glass of wine. The apartment is exceptionally well outfitted with everything you could need! It was great to have parking - even though it was a short walk to the house it was fabulous!
Fantatisch huis. Lekker ruim, mooi afgewerkt en comfortabel. Complete keuken. Heerlijk verblijf om de omgeving te verkennen. Op het een prachtige dakterras lijkt het mij heerlijk vertoeven, in februari was het met 6-10 graden net te koud! Alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig. Het stadje Pezenas biedt alle faciliteiten die je nodig hebt. Voor mij een uitval basis om een week zeer ontspannen mijn werkzaamheden te verrichten.
17th century France meets 21st century travel. There is not a surface in this tastefully restored apartment that has not received the study and touch of an exceptional interior decorator. My wife, who fancies herself quite the cook, found the kitchen superbly equipped. Lighting and electrical outlets, often lacking in restored older buildings, are plentiful. I could go on but would only be repeating what others have previously written. All have described every aspect of this home accurately.
It was a pleasure to have you both at Porte 22, and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We humbly accept your generous compliment on the interior decoration and the kitchen, which we designed ourselves, but will pass on your comments to our expert Master Painter!
Once again we have been so fortunate to host wonderful guests whom we would happily welcome again.
Porte 22 is one of the most beautiful places/houses in Pezenas, located perfect in the centre, and Louise is the best host and organizer ever.
Everything in this lovely house is perfect & well renovated, cozy, luxury, stylish and the house offers everything you may need for a stay in the region. The house, the kitchen, the roof-terrace is perfectly-equipped on a high-level and very clean. There's nothing you're going to miss.
We (3 girl-friends) stayed one week and enjoyed the house and also the terrace very very much. Patty has welcomed us and informed us in detail about everything in the house and in the region. She was always reachable and supported us with everything we needed.
Louise has delivered all info before we started to Pezenas. Her replying-time was incredible and she took care on everything and made our stay perfect!
We can highly recommend this extra-ordinary-beautiful-stylish house, made with sooo many love, and Louise as perfect host!
Thank you very very much Louise!!
About the Host, Louise
France, especially southern France with all it has to offer, is our absolute favourite place to be.
We especially love to be in Pezenas year around and to explore the region on foot, bike, skis, car, and train.
We are delighted to share this passion through our rental accommodation at "Porte 22", which we have created exclusively for your holiday stay.
We're new to Airbnb (August 2014), and we love their concept of the personal touch that these home stays can offer, to experience the town as a local.
