“A little piece of Heaven”
The extraordinary setting of this house so high up was an absolute delight. It was like sitting in heaven, watching the world go by, down under.
Our children could not wait to return every afternoon to swim in the pool which is built on a cliff, overlooking the beautiful village of St Julien in sunny Provence, while mum and dad had sun downers on the terrace before barbecuing every evening.
The huge apartment in which we stayed was perfectly clean with everything we needed and totally private from the very friendly and helpful owners of the house. I absolutely loved the green bathroom!
There are too much to do in this area and you won’t be able to fit it all in one week. A must see is the “Gorges du Verdon”, St Croix is beautiful and our kids loved going on the boats near Lake d Esparron. As this is the Provence, do not forget to visit one or two wineries.
We had a fantastic time and will highly recommend it for couples, families and pensioners.
