The outdoor space is brilliant, waking up to the rising sun over the cliffs, looking out to olive trees, vineyards and lavender fields. The location of the house is very peaceful and very safe. A great place to cycle and have day trips to many of the picturesque french villages... Lacoste, Rousillion, Bonnieux. Aix en Provence is a great place to get lost in the many streets full of shops, cafes and restaurants. We will definitely be back! Merci Beaucoup!

For 10 days our daughter, her partner and their two twins joined us and this proved to be very successful in every way. We would certainly recommend anyone who wants to get away from the madding crowd to stay in this cottage. A car is essential as the nearby villages and towns are not within walking distance and be warned the drive is over 1 kilometre long and something of a challenge for a low clearance vehicle!
