It has been planned very thoughtfully and the gardens and pool are lovely. The whole area is a lovely part of the world with too many local places to see in one week, so we plan to come back.

The house is lovely, was spotless, and Michelle and Florence were both extremely helpful in sorting out the few small hiccups along the way. Book the chef, he was fantastic! A perfect home base for exploring Provence!
