We found the apartment to be more than adequate for two unrelated people. The view is delightful, there is a fully equipped kitchen, and on the whole it was quite comfortable as a jumping off point for various adventures in the region. The building that the apartment is in rustic (from the 1500's so that should be understood!), but the amenities are modern. We alternated between visits to the Cote d'Azur and the "tourist spots" of Le Lavandou, St. Tropez, Nice, Antibes and Juan les Pins and taking lovely hikes in the uncrowded areas of the back country, passing through delightful and beautiful villages along the way. We also visited the Museum of Prehistory in Quinson and the Gorge du Verdon (the Grand Canyon of France.) There are many lovely areas we didn't get to - next time!

The house is big and cool in the hot weather and is very easy to live in and keep clean. It was very well maintained and having the cleaner come in after one week, was an added bonus and much appreciated. There was everything we needed and more in the house to make our holiday comfortable and easy. We spent most of the time out on the terrace enjoying the fabulous view while sampling the local foods and wines. The kids loved the pool and spent hours splashing and having a great time. The area is just lovely and the local markets are great, All the local sellers were also very friendly and helpful. The towns are gorgeous and very interesting and easy to get to by car. The house is close to Barjols, easy to get to for those daily croissants and baguettes but is absolutely private and quiet, which is one of its main attractions, as well as that view - which is better in reality, than it appears in the photos! The house manager did a great job. She was very helpful and friendly and she was always available if we had any problems. She helped make our stay very pleasant. I would defintley come back here and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Did it work out to be that great? Sandie : It worked out to be better than great! Ten people in our group, nobody knew everyone. Some were friends of others, we were meeting some people for the first time and some of us were best friends. When we all arrived we were amazed. The house is large … it’s spacious. We have privacy. Everyone has their own bathroom which was important for our group. We didn’t have to wait for showers, hot water a plenty. I would get up early in the morning and hot water would be waiting for me. The most important thing for us was to have a place that felt like ‘home’ and we truly now refer to this as ‘our home’. You cannot even begin to imagine the comfort of having both privacy and large enough spaces that you can dine together, you can laugh and play games together, but you can go off and have a very relaxing spacious space of your own. These things were important to us and it exceeded our expectations! For the full interview see the video on YouTube ‘LaMaisonDuFaiencier’
