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.
The house is in a great spot, the view from the terrace and the pool area out over the lake are great. The rooms were nice and clean. Overall we had a great week in a character property.
Couple of things to note, we have booked a number of villas before and this is the first time that the bedding and towels is charged as a extra so bear this in mind when booking, especially when you then have to make the beds yourself on arrival.
A number of times during our stay the smell of sewage was such that you needed to keep certain windows closed.
Also, the pool was only cleaned on the Sunday, the day after our arrival, but during the week there was an accumulation of dead insects/spiders in the bottom of the pool which meant that by the last day one of our kids refused to go in the pool.
The village is a short drive to get the bread in the morning, did walk there the first day but drove every other day. Hired an electric boat on the lake one day and also kayak and paddle boards another day which was great.
All in all, we had a great week and we would recommend the house for a family stay.
