House well equipped and excellent location for traveling around Provence. If you like bird houses George makes them and we bought one, so nice to have a genuine memento from the visit. There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children ) and house was perfect for this. Cathy came round with fresh vegetables and eggs. All essentials including tea, coffee, salt, pepper, etc etc included so nice not to have to buy these. Would be more than happy to stay here again and heartily recommend. Pictures do not do the place justice, it is simply beautiful.

If you love to Cycle, this is a great place. You can see Mont Ventoux from the garden(ok,it's 40 km away, but what a day out). Walkers will love it, it is beautiful. Nature Lovers, if you want to wake up to the gentle hum of bees on Lavender(which starts 20 yards away) this really is the place for you. Beautiful clear nights for stargazing.Can't praise it highly enough. Go there, it is so beautiful.
