Woche die Villa Rossinyol zu einem sehr günstigen Preis anbot. Nach kurzer Besichtigung im Internet haben wir zugesagt und waren in keiner Hinsicht enttäuscht!!! Das Haus ist eine Pracht, man könnte fast sagen, für eine Landgegend fast zu prachtvoll, der (geheizte!!) Swimmingpool ist wunderbar, die Gegend sehr ruhig, die Einrichtung sehr grosszügig, es ist alles da, was man braucht. Wie sind zwei etwas ältere Paare, die gelegentlich zusammen verreisen, darunter sind 2 Starköche, so dass wir immer im Hause assen, die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind wie immer und überall in Frankreich grossartig!! Die einzige kleine Einschränkung ist die, dass man wissen muss, die Villa liegt weit von grösseren Ortschaften entfernt, so dass man Einkäufe gut planen muss, ein Baguette am Morgen geht nicht so einfach! Alles in Allem aber eine wundervolle Woche!!!! Bob ist immer da, wenn man ihn braucht, sehr diskret, ein grossartiger Mensch!!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is everything the website says and more. Julie and Andy were so helpful, both before and during our visit. The village has excellent facilities for immediate needs and is close to fantastic villages, towns, coastline and countryside as well as bigger shopping facilities. Daily walks through the vineyards and fields and friendly neighbours in the cul-de-sac all added to the experience. We were sad to leave and will definitely return to explore the area more and enjoy the peace of the village and its surroundings. Thank you Julie and Andy for making our holiday so enjoyable.
