Beautiful Quiet Location – Amazing Hosts!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing week at this lovely property. Monique & François were so friendly and helpful which really made the stay special. The property is in a beautiful location ‘off the beaten’ track and is so quiet and peaceful and hence the perfect place to escape from the crowds. The property is relatively small but we managed fine as a family of 4 (2 teenage kids) and loved the rustic nature of it and were not at all put off by the outside toilet and shower. In fact the shower was a fun experience with plenty of hot water available. We ate most meals outside on the ‘deck’ under the shade of a beautiful oak tree. To get to the property itself does require a 4x4 (which we didn’t have) but François was always around and able to drive us the 10 minutes or so from the property and along the track to our vehicle in the nearby village of Rougon and picks ups were easy too and just required calling François with 15 minutes notice. The Verdon Gorge is stunning and there was plenty to do and enjoy. Thank you François and Monique for an amazing week and all your kindness, we thoroughly recommend your retreat and your hospitality! Merci à vous deux! James and Neroli

Perfection

5 of 5
From start to finish this was a perfect stay and a perfect spot. Cyril was very accommodating providing us with an extra mattress and bedding. Although Cyril lives upstairs, we were hardly aware he was there at all. This little spot is a magical find and one I almost don't want to tell anyone about so that we can keep it completely to ourselves. The views are incredible and the cabin 100% private. We would visit again in a heartbeat!
