There are several sitting areas around the house so there is always a choice of sun or shade. The house is clean and well equipped. Michel and Jocelyne were excellent hosts and always responded immediately if we needed something or to give advice. Mallemort is well placed for exploring the beautiful villages in Provence as well as the coast. We enjoyed many glasses of champagne with Jocelyne and Michel who became friends by the end of our stay.
