We phoned Alain as instucted and he came very promptly to let us in. The house had everything that we needed but it did feel like we were staying in someones home apposed to a holiday rental. There are a lot of personal photos around the house, you can't even go to the toilet without having several photos looking back at you. We loved the outside cooking areas and used them most evenings. Rosemary and Thyme grow in the garden and we used them in most of our meals. The view is great and location is peaceful. The pool area has the sun all day but cools off in the evening. There are many inflatables in the pool room for guests to use. Barjols is a charming little town with a little shop in the centre and a contact carrefore on the outskirts, a couple of bars and places to eat although we chose to eat in the house. The house has no air con and for some reason the mosquitos love my family so we were reluctant to open the windows for long periods. Although the house wasn't perfect I would be more than happy to return. We had a lovely stay.

As long as this house is available to rent, we will come back! The things that we particularly enjoy are the pool, the relative seclusion and lack of immediate neighbours (nearest property is perhaps 100 ft away) and the wonderful surroundings; the house appears to emerge from a rocky cliff that itself backs onto the forest. There is plenty to do if you have a car (and you will need one) in the surrounding area but we particularly enjoyed relaxing and doing very little; its that kind of a place. We did pay a visit to Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, which is very beautiful; get there early before the crowds appear. Well equipped and comfortable, this year there was the welcome addition of a large gas fired paella cooker that we enjoyed using. The plot is big enough to find your own spot away from your fellow holiday makers if you so desire. Don't forget your inspect repellent if you are troubled by the wee beasties and enjoy cooling down in the pool in mid-afternoon when in July and August it can each 35C or higher. The local patisserie is 10-15 minutes walk and the croissants are great. Barjols has a lot of charm but we didn't tend to spend a lot of time there. This year we caught the Tour de France on the way to Salon de Provence and I was able to indulge my passion for astrophotography as the skies are clear and dark enough. We had a great time.
