The house is comfortable, stylish and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and high-spec and, for a family of 4, it was indulgently spacious. Wifi worked well throughout the house and grounds. We generally enjoyed breakfast on the balcony and lunches in the dining area adjacent to the outdoor kitchen. We also had a couple of bbqs here. The garden is extensive and, whilst the property is not isolated, it is not overlooked at all. The pool area is really lovely. It is lined with lavender bushes and has olive trees at one end for shade. The views towards the hilltop village of Seillans are stunning. The communication with the owner was good and we received a warm welcome from Karen. If you choose to stay here, you won't be disappointed!

The accommodation retains its old character with a modern touch. Has all that you could ask for in an apartment in a beautiful sleepy village location. Made a great base for us to access the gorge for climbing, running and hiking.

Extensive gardens with pool and garden furniture. Lots of parking. Villa itself is very well equipped with large TV, comfy sofas and a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of beautiful villages within easy driving distance - Moustiers Ste Marie, Cotignac, Tourtour to name a few. Very good market in Cotignac on a Tuesday. Easy access to lake and its amenities. Very good and easy contact with owner. Would recommend for anyone who wishes to stay in this beautiful part of Provence.
