The house is lovely and very comfortable and the outdoor space is great. The garden looks out on to a wood. It’s a very tranquil and peaceful setting and our holiday was very relaxing. We even saw a few deer in the wood as we sunbathed in the garden. Grignan, which you can walk to, is a very nice village with a weekly market, shops and quite a few restaurants. We would definitely go back!

The property is compact but comfortable and provided an ideal base for a three week climbing and walking trip in Buis les Baronnies. It came with a fully equipped kitchen for eating in but is only a few minutes' level walk from the town centre when you choose to eat out or go to one of the local bars and cafes to meet friends There is also a supermarket nearby. The patio area was perfect for al fresco breakfasts and relaxed evening meals or entertaining. The garden also has a wonderful view of the spectacular fin of the Rocher St Julien, which dominates the town. The owners were delightful, endlessly helpful and a pleasure to meet. We found that living next door to such a friendly French family added an extra dimension to our holiday and our experience of Provence. We have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it to friends and other holidaymakers - provided they don't take the slot we want for ourselves next year!
