About Ghislain et Leticia Gonsette
We are presently living in Spain after 25 years in the US.I am from Belgium and my wife from the Philippines.While traveling in south of France in September 2012, by chance, we discovered Vaison La Romaine.Two days later, we fell in love with that old historic house and, although the transformations and repairs were very extensive,we never regretted it. The medieval city is full of charm and everyday, history will be present at your site.
Ghislain et Leticia Gonsette purchased this House in 2012

Autumn in Provence
We've stayed in this property several times before, but only in the summer. Not only is Provence great in late October, but the property was perfect too! Some places we've rented before are not well heated, and we are always cold. This property has many electric heaters, and every room was exactly as warm as we wanted it. Also, the many large windows on the square face east, so it is wonderfully bright in the mornings, which is very nice during the shorter days.
Even on rainy days, the house was comfortable and bright, and we enjoyed staying in and reading!
Although it was too cold to eat on the rooftop patio, the main room dining area was perfect for dinners in as well: we ate at home seven of our eight nights!
We'll almost certainly try another shoulder season stay here again!
Thanks as always Duncan and Barbara.I am glad you enjoyed as we did the fall season. We remodeled and furnished this home as for ourselves and we also like the cosy atmosphere of the rainy days.
See you next year!

Medieval charm, modern conveniences
This is a stunning house done over beautifully to include all modern conveniences. It faces a charming old square centered on a huge tree and a trickling stone fountain. The handsome stone stairs were a challenge for us, no longer young, but worth it. Be aware that parking is not easy and food shopping requires a car. This area is primarily residential. But if you want an authentic experience of life long ago, this is it.
Thanks Monica. We appreciate always comments from our clients and we are glad that you appreciated the home and location.When we discovered the stairs, we fell in love with the home and each time we go up and down, we think of all the generations that preceded us. It brings humility and some philosophy . Hope to see you back and thank you again.

Favourite place in France!
This is the fourth time we have rented this property. We love it that much, and everything about it is perfect. Check out our other reviews if you want details, but the above says it all.
Merci Duncan and Barbara. I can say one thing! You are the most faithful and I think over the years, you spent more time in Casa Vasio than ourselves! But we will go end of September!

We spent 3 weeks in this beautifully restored home. Tastefully decorated, gorgeous views, quiet, really nice kitchen. Wonderful location. Very close to the Dentelles de Montmirail and Mont Ventoux (hiking and biking), Gigondas (great wine, plus a Michelin starred restaurant: L'Oustalet), and plenty of cute villages and markets to explore. Highly recommended.
Thanks for staying in Casa Vasio and I hope you and family enjoyed your time.
We also hope that the facility was adequate and don´t hesitate to contact us for suggestions.We hope to see you back like many of our previous customers.

Old world charm with modern conveniences
This beautifully, lovingly restored 15th century home symbolizes France’s history in the Vaison-la-Romaine area. It is tastefully decorated, maintaining the old world charm. Kitchen is great and well outfitted. It’s in a fantastic location – easy to walk into town. We loved being in the medieval upper village and still be able to walk into the lower village. We were able to take some great hikes in the area and it’s easy to visit neighboring villages and wineries. After traveling through France for 10 days it was a welcome respite to have a lovely home for two weeks. We even took a cooking class in Vaison, Cuisine de Provence. There are a number of very good restaurants within walking distance.
A couple of items to keep in mind. Because it is four stories ( we mostly just used the second and third floor- kitchen living area and bedroom ), be prepared to do a lot of climbing up and down stairs with some uneven surfaces.
The other thing is parking can be a little tricky. We were fortunate enough to not have to park far away most of the time, but several times did have a climb up the hill to the house.
Pascal, the property manager was always available, very kind and took care of any needs we had, which were few.
All this being said, it was worth it! This was our favorite part of our month trip in France.
It was a pleasure having both of you in our property. We appreciate your comments positive and negative as well.It is a fact that enjoying a 15th century
Property necessitates somme accommodations but you experienced the same feelings we did when we bought this property ...before complete remodeling.
Thanks for choosing Casa Vasio.

Twice in one summer!
We rented this house in July of 2018 and loved it...we were very sad to leave, and thought "until next year." As a result of some weird business travel plan changes, we were "stuck" in France for a week, and had to stay somewhere. As luck would have it, our favourite house was available, so we booked immediately.
We had a perfect seven nights. If anything, it was even better than our stay earlier in the summer. Some nights were too cool to eat on the third floor terrace, so we had our first dinners in the main room, and loved them just as much as our rooftop dinners.
Check in and check out were flawless as before, and we are even meeting some of the neighbours, all of whom wave and chat and are most friendly.
Merci Duncan. IWe are glad your business changes brought you back to Casa Vasio. I know our neighbors did appraciate your family .This home has been a meeting point for many foreigners and we wish we could meet them all. We appreciate you shared our love for the medieval city and the old stones of our property. Come back again....

Vaison La Romaine is best known for its archeological remains of the Roman era that have been discovered.But the city also had an intense feudal activity,not in the valley as the Gallo Roman period but on the rocky outcrop which is accessed by crossing the river Ouveze.
In addition to the poetry of its quiet lanes, the upper city of Vaison offers the charm of its houses, often built in antique stones that can testify to the wealth of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance provence.
