About Roberta Thomas
La Residence is a very special place to friends, family and invited guests. As my children grow older and start to plan their own adventures La Residence remains the one anchor to our frenetic travelling lives. La Residence is not a typical rental home. We maintain it with love and care and enjoy sharing it with thoughtful guests.
Roberta Thomas purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Roberta Thomas chose Grand Sud
Pass through the bold iron gates and up the long sweeping drive and you have arrived at your destination. Choose a special spot in the garden and you can be alone in your Provencal bliss. Not another building in sight and the only sound you hear are the cicadas playing their symphony and the breeze catching the proud oak tress. Down the road is a brief walk down to the local farm shop and dinner supplies are replenished.
What makes this Villa unique
If you want to be energetic and explore the region (almost) everything you would hope to see and do is just a 30-minute drive away. There is something for everyone, of all ages. And when you want to just relax, read, swim, play, explore - there is a beautiful garden to call your own.

Fabulous house near Aix-en-Provence!
We had a wonderful holiday! The owners, Roberta and Andrew were in contact before we arrived and told us to contact them should we need any help while we were there.
The house was spotlessly clean, and very well equipped.
It is well situated for visiting Provence but we were happy to spend most of our time on the lovely terrace beside the pool, reading, swimming, snoozing, having a nice glass of rosé.....
Why would you want to go anywhere?
We stocked up in the huge Carrefour hyper market(a couple of kilometres away) and made good use of the farm shop (which is within walking distance) and the ‘cave’
If you don’t fancy driving to Aix-en-Provence, you can park your car in the village and jump on the bus. There is a very regular service and it only takes about 20 minutes and costs €1,20.
We had a very nice lunch at Domaine et Cie, just a few minutes away from the house. We sat on the terrace under the the huge chestnut tree-gorgeous!
We were unfortunate to suffer a power failure at the end of our stay but it in no way detracted from the overall pleasure we had in staying in this beautiful villa.
Thank you to Paul, Ghislaine and Jonathan for their help and advice and to Laszlo, the dog for his lovely welcome on our arrival!
We hope to go back someday ☀️🇫�🇷�☀️

A Lovely Vacation
This home was everything I hoped for and more. I loved having the farm stand right down the road (not to mention the wine store right behind it!). The location was perfect for day trips around the countryside. We had a wonderful and restful time.
A beautiful home
Spacious, clean and comfortable. The highlight of this home is the beautiful outdoor garden and pool. We enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful property. Relaxing experience. Convenient location. I miss Laszlo.
Glorious time in Provence.
The home and property were beautiful! We had a mix of andventures to surrounding villages and days spent just relaxing but the pool. Caretakers were helpful, pictures were very accurate and beds were super comfortable. Seven of us fit comfortably in the spacious house. A fabulous time!
Beautiful old charm 💓
Setting is very Beautiful.
Perfect for the family.
Caretaker people are there and very kind.
'La Residence' is a beautiful property set in over 2-acres of lawns and garden. Surrounded by mature oak and pine trees and beautiful olive orchard with 300-year old trees (ideal for sitting under and reading a book with a glass of something to your fancy), you will discover the peace and beauty of Provence whilst benefiting from the convenience of having restaurants, farm and village shops, only a few minutes away.
Ideal family home - children are welcome!
Extra maid, babysitting and Chef service available by request.
The house has been designed and fitted with thought and detail to make sure every stay is memorable and frustration free.
Some of the most breathtaking and fun destinations are within 40 miles. A few minutes away, ‘le grand marché’, the Aix-en-Provence market is a not-to-be missed experience. And when you've had enough of driving, a lazy day by the pool, reading in the library or dining under the gazebo as the long, summer days, draw to a close, will nourish the soul. For the more energetic, we recommend hide-and-seek in the gardens or a post-lunch game of Petangue.
A short car ride away, Marseille offers a host of cultural and artistic events across the year.
From food, art, exhibitions, architecture and stunning rural beauty, Provence offers guests an unrivaled Mediterranean experience - and La Residence a fabulous country villa to explore it from.
Other Activities: golf, fishing (brown trout in the local river - rods and tackle provided), climbing & trekking, parachuting, gliding, white-water rafting, go-cart, picnics and Forest Adventure (flying fox and swinging through the trees).
