    "The Chateau exceeded our highest expectations, the photographs could never do it justice, it may only be captured in person and I could not recommend this experience any higher. Beautiful and amazing, grandeur yet homely and relaxing, we loved it! We are fortunate to have travelled to many beautiful parts of the world and stayed in many luxury villas and hotels, but Chateau du Taureau is the best of the best, made even more perfect by our charming and efficient hosts Jonathan, Fabian and the beautiful Vanessa, thank you for making the trip so amazing. We leave with sad hearts but fondest memories."

    "Never in my life have I experienced such a wonderful exposure to a beautiful home and surrounding culture. The two weeks we spent here was simply a tease into this amazing region of Provence. I will never forget this awesome place. Incredible! And, as a UCLA water polo player, I must say the pool was the most beautiful I have ever seen. Honestly! I cannot imagine another vacation spot that could be better. Great wine, great people, great countryside. I had the time of my life. Thank you!"
    David B
    "My alter ego Frasier Crane once said, If less is more, think of how much more more will be. I don't have to think about it any more, I have lived it here at your amazing home. Sumptuous feasts, violin concerts in the chapel, croquet in our whites on the lawn, ballooning, bicycling, and aperitif each night in a more beautiful location. I want more more more! Thanks so much."
    Cindy C
    "magnifique! The perfect setting for our family reunion. We came from California, Munich, Germany and Florence, Italy and we don't want to leave! Pool games, shopping trips, wine tasting, cicadas singing, guitars playing and lots of love."
