The (well equipped) accommodation is spread over a number of floors and copes well with large numbers (we were 19). Even the weather was wonderful in late October which meant we were able to explore the surrounding countryside. The host was very helpful and attentive, and responded quickly to any questions. Convenient location close to Marseille airport and also Aix. We would be very happy to return and are happy to recommend it.

The location is fantastic for exploring the Provence area and is within walking distance of a local well stocked supermarket, a boulangerie, butcher, restaurant. The property is spacious, very well equipped and the owners were extremely kind and hospitable, they shared their local knowledge with us and advised regarding buying fresh produce from a local farmer and the food market. They also advised on restaurants, local wines, and places of interest to visit. I would recommend this property of anyone planning to visit Provence. If we return to Provence we would definitely consider returning to the same property.
