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.

Great outdoor living space with lots of space and shade around a pool which, despite the high daily temperatures, remained stubbornly cold and a little uninviting to all but the most hardy. The owners, who looked after the property themselves, were very charming, helpful, welcoming and attentive, and gave us good notice of regular maintenance of the pool and garden, thereby minimising any inconvenience to us. The surrounding area, just north of Marseilles, is very flat and beyond the industrial suburbs, has many small farms with lots of glass houses and poly tunnels in which grew fruit and vegetables. Though not very interesting or attractive, the immediate countryside roads were great for easy walking and cycling, but with the nearest shops a couple of miles away, and everywhere else of interest several miles, a car is essential. Lots of beautiful small villages dotted around, and larger towns such as Aix en Provence, Salon de Provence and Marseilles itself, as well as beaches, markets and festivals, so there was plenty to see and do to break up the time round the pool. As always in France you should remember that the shops close around the middle of the day, but many centres come alive at night with great entertainment for all the family, and of course you can walk around in relative cool. Finally, the description and photos of the property were very accurate, and it certainly lived up to expectations.

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.
