Beautifully appointed one bedroom gite

  • Review Submitted: 27-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
We would like to say a big thank you to Colin and Sandra for providing such a clean and comfortable place to stay. The “Genvrier” is a beautifully appointed one bedroom gite. We came to the area to research gite business opportunities and we have to say that we learnt a great deal from all the thoughtful touches provided in our gite from the dishwasher tablets through to the beautiful surprise gift on our arrival. Sandra and Colin had thought of everything and it was a pleasure to spend a week there. Really handy for the Verdon Gorge and villages such as Tourtour and Villecroze (lovely gardens). We walked into Aups regularly for the markets and meals etc (great not to have to drive back to the gite). Thanks again Colin and Sandra - See more at: http://www.provence-holidayrental.com/?p=14#comments

All in all a great spot!

  • Review Submitted: 27-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
Had a lovely week in Le Genevrier. The accommodation was spotless and contained everything you needed. Although we didn’t use it a great deal the private terrace area was lovely. The sunloungers by the pool were very comfortable and although the pool is shared, it always felt quiet and intimate. As others have said, the hosts are friendly and at your disposal but do not intrude. Aups is a lovely little town and only 10 minutes walk away. The supermarket opposite is very convenient and the noise from the road only bothered us on one night when there seemed to be an influx of loud scooters in the early hours. Other than that no road noise at all. Aups is a great base for exploring the area, including the Gorge du Verdon, the lake and only an hour and a half from St Maxim on the coast, from where you can get a boat to St Tropez. So all in all a great spot with lovely, compact accommodation. - See more at: http://www.provence-holidayrental.com/?p=14#comments

This is a well appointed gite in an extremely beautiful area of France. We shall certainly visit the area again. Our fortnight at Sandra and Colin's gite was excellent. They are very welcoming hosts and they have lots of ideas and suggestions for their guests to consider. Great gite, great location, great holiday.

Lucky to find this accommodation

  • Review Submitted: 07-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
We were so lucky to find this accommodation as we left it rather late to book somewhere. It was perfect for us. Although situated on a main road, the layout was such that once behind the gate of the accommodation the attractive dense hedges between the accommodation minimised the traffic noise. A plus side of being near the main road was that it meant only a 10 minute walk into Aups, such a lovely Town, really quaint with lots of restaurants and other shops. The supermarket is directly opposite the accommodation and so we had fresh bread for breakfast every day. We visited some friends who were holidaying about an hour away, and I would not swap their views of the country side for the perfect location of our Gite Le Genévrier. So the Gite itself was very comfortable and there was not a single thing we could have asked for, if I had to rack my brains for something it would be a set of bathroom scales, but actually that was a big relief not to have to check my weight during the week, so thank you Colin and Sandra for not putting scales in the bathroom! I had been a little worried about the size of the bed, being used to sleeping in a king bed at home, but the double was very comfortable, lovely bedding that was clean and fresh. I cannot praise this place enough, it was clean, comfortable and situated so that travel to the surrounding beauty spots did not seem far away. Colin and Sandra make you feel very welcome and are on hand if you need anything, but do not intrude. The BBQ was excellent as was the wine tasting that they put on. I would highly recommend this accommodation, just before we left we looked at the other Gites, which were equally well equipped and tastefully decorated, all with their own character. The beauty of staying here also is that because it only has a few Gites, it does not feel overcrowded with people, and so using the pool area it is rare to fid anyone else there at the same time as you, and you can imagine it is there just for you. We had such a great time and would love to go back again. Book it and enjoy. - See more at: http://www.provence-holidayrental.com/?p=14#sthash.1e2gOSHM.dpuf

First visit to Le Diamant Noir Thank you, we had

  • Review Submitted: 07-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: May 2013
This was our first visit to Le Diamant Noir, Le Genévrier, the gite was recommended by friends. Thanks for the recommendation! The gite was everything we had hoped for sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, well-equipped with everything you need and an easy walk to the store to get our groceries. Colin and Sandra were wonderful hosts, and the region has so much to see that do we could spend many more weeks exploring. The gorge was amazing and we enjoyed discovering the streets and markets in Aups, Tourtour, Villecroze and many other little towns. We have already recommended Le Diamant Noir to friends and colleagues and will continue to pass on recommendations to anyone else planning a trip in the area.
Thank you, we had a wonderful time.
