Beautifully appointed, lovely and quiet setting with lots to see nearby.

5 of 5
Very pretty house with everything we needed. The owners were very welcoming with good english. Offers of help if we needed it but not intrusive. Spacious and well appointed. Even has a washing machine and easy to use electric hob. Private pretty garden with plenty of shade and variety of seating. We ate outside for breakfast and dinner listening to the crickets. Lots of pretty hilltop villages to visit and very useful to be so close to Apt for shopping. Although the lavender was nearly over we found it in Sault and had a wonderful day driving around Mount Ventoux. Cheap local wine and very friendly cat called Garfield! Thank you for a wonderful week. We hope to return at a cooler time to explore further as we had a 40°C heatwave!
