We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children, aged 4 and 18 months respectively. The accommodation is both private and flexible, so that it would suit almost any combination of guests. There is plenty of space so that we never felt on top of one another and plenty of room in the garden for the children to run around (when they weren't in the pool!). The children's play area was an added bonus. The pool is something else-graduated and with steps at the shallow end for the children but large enough and deep enough for adults too. The setting is fabulous and it was a real treat to open the bedroom doors onto the garden and pop into the pool for an early morning dip. Rousillion with its supermarket, pretty shops and restaurants is only a few minutes (uphill) drive away but the villa itself is in a very rural position with no noise or light pollution. Christian, the house manager is both charming and multilingual and was able to conjure up a plumber at short notice when we had a problem with one of the showers. What's not to like? We're hoping to book again for next year.......
