First english family to stay

5 of 5
We had 11 nights at Amandine and Ian's Farm with their lovely children and animals. From the offset they were fantastic hosts and made us feel very welcome. They provided us with lots of information on local activities and did everything they could to make our stay memorable. Ian even decided to drive alongside me as a support vehicle as I slogged up Mont Ventoux on my bike and rewarded me with some of his home brewed beer in the evening when we returned. All in all its a great place to stay with lovely people. Andy Cherrill and Family

No hesitation in recommending this property

5 of 5
One of the easiest reviews I've had the pleasure to write. This property is superb. A beautifully renovated farmhouse furnished simply but with taste. Fixtures & fittings are of the utmost quality. Kitchen is perfectly equipped to cater for a large party. Inside decor is unfussy, modern, with just the right amount of pleasant decoration. Bedrooms are roomy and uncluttered with plenty of storage. All en-suites upstairs are contemporary with plenty of room, light and ventilation - very good design. Pool area is delightful, plenty of seating, shade if needed. If I'm being very fussy I would must mention that the en-suite downstairs (being internal), could do with some added ventilation. No hesitation in recommending this property, in my opinion it's one of the most comfortable ones we've stayed in, modern, but at the same time retaining a rustic feel. Nice touch having a boules pitch and table tennis.
