This house is in the most beautiful location imaginable. It must be one of the very best locations in Provence. The photographs show the view down the lake to the South, but the are also glorious views down branches of the lake to the East and West.
The Guichards are excellent hosts and gave us a very comprehensive tour of the house on arrival. There were no maintenance issues, so we didn't have to bother them during our stay.
Not only is the location so beautiful (photos just don't begin to show it), but it is also an excellent spot for touring Provence. We were on the trail of Jean de Florette and visited all of the villages where it was filmed.
We also took a drive down to the Cote d'Azur to visit some friends - which was alos easily achievable as a day trip.
All in all, we are delighted to have chosen this house which was perfect for our family (mum dad and 2 children in early 20s) needs.
The house is in a great spot, the view from the terrace and the pool area out over the lake are great. The rooms were nice and clean. Overall we had a great week in a character property.
Couple of things to note, we have booked a number of villas before and this is the first time that the bedding and towels is charged as a extra so bear this in mind when booking, especially when you then have to make the beds yourself on arrival.
A number of times during our stay the smell of sewage was such that you needed to keep certain windows closed.
Also, the pool was only cleaned on the Sunday, the day after our arrival, but during the week there was an accumulation of dead insects/spiders in the bottom of the pool which meant that by the last day one of our kids refused to go in the pool.
The village is a short drive to get the bread in the morning, did walk there the first day but drove every other day. Hired an electric boat on the lake one day and also kayak and paddle boards another day which was great.
All in all, we had a great week and we would recommend the house for a family stay.
