Perfect for a base to explore Provence. Looks small but it has ample three bedrooms upstairs. Vincent is easy to deal with.

The pool was excellent as was the outdoor furniture, the loungers were especially good. The house was big and up a secluded side street making it private and quiet. It is well placed to get out and about in the area or just to spend time relaxing
