Location Location! Only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Manosque the site is on a beautiful hilltop with amazing uninterrupted views of the valley and distant mountains. The main feature for us during a short stay was the total seclusion and privacy, with no outside noise apart from the occasional visits from the friendly dog, donkeys, chickens, goat and sheep who only added to whole wonderful experience.
Our wonderful hosts Maryse and Mathys who live onsite were amazingly friendly, available if needed, helpful and generous with flavourful and fresh food gifts, yet in way no did they interrupt the overall peace and outside areas.
Most of our time was spent in the outside living areas with the large variety of seating including hammocks and sun loungers in the olive orchards.
The indoor accommodation was modern, comfortable and clean.
There is so much to see locally including the large towns, gorges, quiet picturesque villages and the best market we have ever visited at nearby Forcalquier.
This was our most enjoyable and memorable holiday for many years and we hope to visit again soon.
Thank you Maryse and Mathys for a wonderful experience.
We stayed at this property for 11 nights at the end of August 2018 as a family of four, two adults and two teenage children. It is the 1st time we had stayed at a villa that had no prior reviews and whilst I was a little nervous about this, I was reassured it was genuine by the owner, Beatrice. My concerns were without foundation as on arrival we found the property to be better than the photos portray. Sat behind private electric gates the villa sits nicely on a good sized plot with a separate garage and nice garden. It is fair to say we have never stayed in such a well equipped villa as this, and the property is very nicely furnished. The highlight has to be the wonderful swimming pool and outdoor area, complete with dining table, pizza oven, sink and even a dishwasher . A couple more sunbeds would have been a bonus as there were only 2. The pool was fantastic and was maintained throughout our visit every few days. The house is clearly occupied as a home for part of the year as it is filled with collectables and the owners personal items. There is a french billiards room, although we never had need to use it as weather was very nice throughout our stay. Naturally there is French TV ( & no sky) but again this did not effect us as we were outside until mid-evening most nights and we had taken a number of DVD's. We were also able to play boules and badminton (that we took with us) on the lawn. The accommodation is spacious with comfortable beds and furniture and nicely laid out, although the configuration may not suit everyone. There is also ample external space and outdoor furniture so you are always able to find sun, or shade, as is your want. The property is well positioned for easy access to many of the local tourist sites. The highlights for us being Lac St Croix, Sisteron and Esperron du Verdon. We had a fabulous time and Gaelle was very helpful at arrival and responded promptly if we had any minor queries during our stay. The pool/maintenance chap, (Christian) also helped with recommendations of places to visit. We loved our stay and we would have no problem in recommending it to others. Merci, Beatrice
