Renting a house in Provence for a year for our family of six

“We contacted Fabienne for assistance in renting a house in Provence for a year for our family of six. We had searched ourselves for six months without any luck. We have already found schools for our children, so we were quite specific about location, and this was the trip of a lifetime for us, so we were quite picky !!

We cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by Fabienne. Fabienne provided details, over a short period of time, of a number of houses for our review. She was very prompt, diligent and patient. More than that, we felt that Fabienne understood our dream, that she “got it”, and she was determined to find the right house for us, and make it a success. She did just that – Fabienne found a wonderful house, that we would never have found ourselves, checked it out to ensure that it was right, and then worked very hard on the owner to ensure that the rental was something we could live with. We have met the owner since, who has confirmed that he was also very impressed with Fabienne. We have been in the house now for three months, and it is perfect. We are lucky to have found Fabienne – without her, I doubt we would be in the place of our dreams in Provence !”

Villa Les Cedres Bleus in Aix en Provence

An Incredible 7 Months Stay in Aix en Provence

“HERE & ABROAD made it possible for us to have an incredible 7 months stay in Aix en Provence. We tried hunting through web sites of all sorts, searching and looking for just the right place. Of course, since we didn’t know Aix or the surroundings, we couldn’t tell up from down. After talking with Fabienne we were enormously reassured that we’d find what we needed. Within just a few days she found Apartment La Terrace for us. And we’ve loved every minute of our stay. The apartment is great. Fabienne is great. You can be very sure she will find just the right accommodation for you!”

Susan Feiner and Bruce Roberts, USA.


Villa les Volets Bleus- We had an absolutely wonderful time in France
Fabienne was very helpful in finding this property for us.  She also provided us with lots of great information for us to plan our trip.  I would highly recommend her service to my friends and colleagues. We had an absolutely wonderful time in France and appreciate her help with everything. Robin Zollinger, USA


Mon Mas a Eygalieres is perfection!

HERE & ABROAD was recommended in Travel + Leisure’s 100 Greatest Trips 2110 edition, so I expected quality.  However, I couldn’t have imagined the fantastic personal service that was provided by Fabienne.  She helped me set up the perfect itinerary for my group, saved me from making transportation errors, recommended restaurants in the area, made reservations and even ordered a cake and candles for a birthday dinner.

The property, Mon Mas a Eygalieres, is perfection!!!!  I have had other wonderful villa experiences but nothing to compare to Mon Mas a Eygalieres.  You can see the beautiful property on the website but you can’t see the picturesque village of Eygalieres, the beautiful linens and china and the well appointed kitchen.  The only complaint from our group was that we were too busy sightseeing to spend enough time in our our villa paradise.  I think we might go back someday and stay only in Eygalieres.

Gwen Hillis, USA

“It was the first time I have rented a villa on vacation in Europe and it was by far the best way to experience France. A villa such as Mas Paradis is the perfect setting to experience life is Provence. Location is perfect and the property is absolutely stunning! Excellent services by Fabienne, the owner at Here & Abroad.”

Craig Coldwell, Bermuda

“Our vacation was amazing.  The house was heavenly and all of my friends said it was the best vacation of their lives.  We cooked almost every night and swam under the stars and moon after midnight.  It was so sad to leave. Thank you again for everything. “
