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!

The owner was very helpful and responded to queries very promptly - thanks in particular for resolving the cafetière issue ! Would recommend taking mosquito repellant but overall would recommend property fully!
