Plenty of soft fluffy towels not to mention firelighters should you wish to use the BBQ. great location on the hill side overlooking the vines. A short stroll from the pretty village of Pierrevert where you can amble up for your morning coffee. Delightful owners who are there if you need them but never intrude. We didn't want to leave for us the utterly perfect gite in an idyllically location, we hope to be back.

A plus is that it's just a 15 minute downhill walk to the shops and restaurants in the charming town of Apt (ideally get someone to bring you back up the hill!). The layout of the house is very convenient with 2 ground floor bedrooms (both with en-suite bathrooms but oddly no loo in one). The 2 large decks are ideal for eating outdoors with one shaded by a beautiful oak and the barbecue close by. An ideal place to relax with the convenience of Apt within walking distance (and a massive E Leclerc a few minutes' drive).
