Very old house, with a lot of historic detail dating back to 1600s. Impressive visual appearance. Kitchen very well equipped. Roof top terrace lovely area to sit in shade or full sun, although reclining loungers would have been welcomed. However, the house would benefit from room fans as uncomfortably warm at night. Also while well furnished a more comfortable sofa would have been a welcome addition. This house would be outstanding if some attention was given to providing more comfort. In addition here was no welcome pack on arrival (basic food) normally provided in properties of this calibre.
We stayed at this beautiful newly renovated property in Istres in the summer with our family of five, consisting of three young children (one of whom is a toddler). For a relatively small house we found that it accommodated us perfectly. We made the most of the hot climate by barbecuing outside every night and we bought a little swimming pool for the children to use so they could cool down. We can also recommend the two local beaches (jet skiing at the beach is brilliant and well organised). There is fantastic shopping to be found at Miramas. We also used the location to venture further afield into Avignon, Gordes, Les Baux, Aix de Provence, Saintes Maries Del la Mer. All in one week and each within an hour of the house.
We really benefited from the air conditioning in our room too as the temperature was over 35oC.
Our lovely hosts live close by and we found them to be ready to answer any queries about the local area and to help when we needed anything.
We will definitely be going back and hope to explore Marseille properly this time.
