The two of us found the place clean and comfortable and within easy walking distance of all amenity

4 of 5
Good location within easy reach of numerous restaurants. The local taxi company was excellent when we used them for a visit to La Camarette, which we recommend. The access to the pool from the house was just a small problem, a couple of the steps were narrow and sloping. Some pleasant walks along the canal were readily accessible from the house. Overall a good place for a relaxing holiday.

A fabulous house, a treat to stay in

5 of 5
We arrived a little early and Simon and his team were preparing this gorgeous house for our stay. Simon recommended a local restaurant and bar to relax in, which we did and had a great afternoon. We checked into Maison Louise and what a home. Absolutely lovely, the bedrooms where perfect and very comfy, I stayed in the twin room with such a pretty view, I cannot think of one bad thing to say at all, my partner and friends are all cycling geeks and after cycling up mint ventoux and the gorge e did have time to relax in such a pretty garden. I felt so at home I could have stayed so much longer. My self and partner are hoping To return with family next year. We loved it. Thank you Simon for being patient with us and allowing us to stay in your lovely home.
