Guestbook comments from the owner
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
