The location was perfect, the Villa beautiful and the pool a great asset and much used. We were lucky to be there when the Lavender was out and the colour was amazing. The Villa was well equipped with plenty of towels and linen. Sitting on the verandah in the evening we appreciated the glorious view. Definitely will be returning thank you Andree. Sandra

My husband and I have rented vacation houses in France for many years but Villa Emmanuelle is where we long to return. Thank you so much for an unforgettable week in Provence. Joel, William, Paul and I had a wonderful time.We love your villa and the surrounding area. We saw so many beautiful sights. Thank you Michele for a delicious meal. We enjoyed food we had never tasted before! The rabbit and the brouillade of truffle were tres bien! Wonderful week in a wonderful villa with a wonderful weather... What else could we ask for? Once again thank you to Gaby and Michele. We will keep excellent memories and we will tell others about this very good address! We have greatly enjoyed our time in this beautiful nicely appointed house. This home and the surrounding region have provided a wonderful week for our family.
