Comfortable and relaxing break

4 of 5
This is a great place to stay for a relaxing, restful holiday. The owners are wonderful from the start, extremely hospitable and eager to ensure that their visitors have the best of times. The house is very well equipped inside and out because the owners have thought carefully about what will help holidaymakers to have everything they need. The nearby towns and villages are very well worth visiting. The two downsides are the access roads which are long, narrow and windy, and the insects which make their presence felt throughout the day and night. Nevertheless, we cannot praise highly enough the quality of welcome we received, including the owners' very positive approach to allowing pets to stay at their property.

Rustic France

5 of 5
We booked for a family holiday, the location was fantastic - I hour from Nice and the scenery beautiful, we took a trip into Monaco. There was plenty of space in the house, we were 4 couples and a few children, the main house had 6 bedrooms, all with double and single bed, so plenty of space and a second adjoined building had 2 more large bedrooms which were all ours. The outside area had 2 pools, 1 heated and a barn which was equipped with various gym/games/ping pong - which was great as it rained a couple of times. In between Puget and Entreveux both easy to get to and with local supermarket and bakery and lots to see. The house and bed linen where very clean, however the house has been well used, which is fine as long as you don't expect more and the instructions for cleaning and linen could have been clearer as could the directions for getting there, we arrived in the dark and couldn't see the sign. Oliver whom looks after the property was great, he looked after us and was just a phonecall away. Overall a great place, we loved it, the children loved it and would recommend for a family holiday.
