My partner and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday which is just what the doctor ordered! The house was spotless when we arrived and everything you could possibly need is provided. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage, the bathroom is amazing with large walk in shower and huge tub bath should you want it. The kitchen opens out at the back onto a large courtyard with somewhere to sit out and have your meals in the summer. The garden is not overlooked and has a lovely pool which is small but large enough to actually swim in... very welcome in the hot summer sun! Plenty of sun loungers for relaxing in and even fresh figs, plums, grapes and hazelnuts if you are there at the right time of the year. For cooler evenings there is a wood burner in the huge sitting room if you are there out of the summer season. The village has a shop, bakery and butcher and somewhere to even get take away pizza. There is a very well stocked supermarket nearby. We had a fantastic day out canoeing on the River Orb - definitely recommend it! The beach is about an hour away and the wonderful town of Pezanas is worth a visit with late night artisan shopping through atmospheric narrow lanes with plenty of places to eat. We even managed to go jogging around the village in the surrounding countryside if that is something you are interested in! All in all an amazing week. We would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

The house is so beautiful, everything you could possibly need is provided. (Even a washing machine on the ground floor, which means you can travel light. ) You can buy everything you could ask for in the village, which is a minutes walk away. Market day is twice weekly with loads of fresh produce, clothes and really anything you can think of. Country side, towns, beaches mountains are all within easy reach with stunning scenery to travel through. My furthest venture this year was Lac du Laouzas, high in the mountains. Lovely picnic areas there. Probably a lot to do in summer as there were kayaks, paddle boats, play area and swimming pool. Back to the house for drinks on the terrace. Hillary and Martin are the very helpful and courteous owners and Jan their housekeeper was amazing. I left my glasses in the village square and Hillary and Martin arranged with Jan to collect and return them to me. Thank you again for allowing me to stay in your wonderful house. I'LL BE BACK.
