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

The weather was rather patchy, but probably as expected at that time of the year. We went with the idea of walking and seeing some of the lovely local villages. And that's what we did. The house was exactly what we wanted, and as described on the website. The décor is modern and very comfortable. The kitchen contains everything you need to self-cater. We loved the view over the orchards and vineyards, and there is a boules court and a swimming pool. These are both shared with the other gite. It's an 8-minute walk into Pierrevert where, among other shops, there is a bakery, butchers, wine co-operative and a small supermarket. Manosque is 10-15 minutes by car and has several big supermarkets and a delightful old centre. Christine and Frederic were very welcoming, left some lovely welcome gifts for our arrival, and were on hand to help if needed. All in all, a well nigh perfect place to stay!
