Beautiful Villa for a relaxing holiday
My girlfriend and I spent a week in this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the photos do not do justice to the size and homely feel of the villa.
We arrived at the begining of June and the weather was average, temperatures in the mid to high 20s with rain on a few days, however on these days we took the opportity to visit the nearby town of Lorgues, about a 5 minute drive, and were very surprised with the friendliness of the locals (the majority of whom spoke very little english, luckily I got by on remembering my GCSE French).
The local supermarche, again within a 5 minute drive, provided us with good quality fresh food and most nights we used the BBQ by the pool to cook fresh steak, far superior to anything you can get in England. The kitchen facilities were top of the range.
On the nights we spent our time by the pool drinking wine from one of the local vineyards on the way in to Lorgues, I strongly recommend their sparkling whites and on the rainy nights we curled up on the couches and watched films (bring your own DVD player if possible) or sky TV (bring your own card as its only freeview normally). I'm not sure the nightlife is what you would call "buzzing" but for a relaxing holiday we were happy relaxing in the villa and by poolside.
The only negatives we encountered were the bugs (if you have a bug phobia the south of France is not the place to be looking) and the country roads to the villa, I would not advise cars with lowered suspension. Other than that it was a brilliant week and I would personally look at returning to the same villa, perhaps with friends or family
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this review. However, I feel I must respond to a couple of comments. Bugs are inevitable in all countries and more so in the countryside, but this has never proved to be a problem. Both the lane and drive to Riverhouse are good and when we visit, we always hire a new. small economy car. There has never been a problem with regards to the lane or drive. Many thanks, the owner
