The garden is quite large and indeed surrounded by nature... wild birds flying over, horses snorting behind the fence... we'll miss all those sounds, smells, the views of beautiful Camargue. I'd also like to thank you Isabelle and Christian for organizing the memorable trip over the farm - it was one of the highlights of our trip. Best of luck in the future to yous!

You have your own private place with table to rest and grill. The garden with the pool lovely - it is for you till 4 p.m. and you are there alone-the owners of the property live in the house beside, but you do not see them, they work and are very discret when they are at home. The location is very good, you have 5 to 7 min by bicycle to the town and to the lovely beach. Maria, Poland
