It ticked all the boxes for us in terms of location and size - a wonderful enclosed garden the dog could enjoy, a covered pool, BBQ. The village itself was charming. We'd walk to the bakery most days and then did plenty of hikes nearby. We also explored Bonniuex, Lacoste, Colorado Provencal, Aix en Provence all easily reachable by car. Hélène et Thierry ended up staying in the small converted house on site which wasn't a problem for us but we weren't told about this beforehand nor the cleaning which was asked for in cash for when we departed. We ended up getting up early and cleaning ourselves as there had only been the two us and it was no problem. Would recommend travelers check these details with the owners beforehand to avoid any complications. A great place and would definitely recommend.

We had small children of various ages and a pool gaurd was deployed around the pool when we arrived, which was perfect for peace of mind. The pool itself was lovely and cool and not deep, so again perfect for the kids. My only suggestion would be a pool cover to prevent dirt entering at night and to keep it warm for swimming on cooler days. A net was also provided to fish out leaves etc. It's very roomy villa and also has excellent a/c and facilities, although the gas barbecue is out of order. The bedrooms are all large although the ground floor master bedroom has no shutters and smelled a little of mothballs when we arrived. There is not much hanging space for clothes in the house as the owners have them all locked up and must visit often themselves. There was one hanging cupboard in the main hall and hanging storage is limited to the few coat hangers found within. It's very peaceful place and easy to access many wonderful spots or amenities. It's also beautifully decorated in a tasteful mix of new and old with an enormous and gorgeous deck out the front of the house. We were 3 separate groups but found it easy to find privacy or alternatively join together in a group. Highly recommended.
