The house is perfect comfortable homely we really felt at home there. Excellent position to bus stops and shops the pool was great and the whole property so secure which is so important when you have young children. The best thing about the property however is Mathilde she is wonderful so happy and helpful not to mention kind and generous.on our arrival she had stocked the cupboards with butter,bread,salad,chicken,tea,coffee etc.... She helped with our shopping a doctors visit for one of our children , took us to buy gifts joined us for coffee and juice on a few occasions, popped in with breads,cheese and goodies for the children and on the last night joined us for dinner which she paid for! I have never ever experienced such an amazing host on any of the many holidays I have enjoyed with my friends and family over the years. Mathilde you are truly one in a million and anyone that is looking for a lovely holiday in the south of france in my opinion would not find a better one ! We will definitely be back!

We were absolutely delighted with the villa; it felt more like a second home than holiday accomodation. ' O.Banerjee, ( J.P. Morgan ) We had the most wonderful time at Les Oliviers. I think it is the most beautiful house I have ever lived in - 'en vacances' or otherwise. You gave us a warm, personal and friendly welcome .... I have already recommended you to friends.....the quality of your villa and service could not possibly be improved upon.... Mr & Mrs M. Wickens, GB

A selection of small and large supermarkets all within 5-10 min drive. Spotless and decorated with taste. Every amenity is provided in the gite (Zephir), a true home from home. Extremely comfortable beds and pillows, spotless bed linen and bright, white, fluffy towels. The family were very welcoming, without intruding on personal space. I have no hesitation in recommending this accomodation, and hope to use it again myself."
