                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.
