For 10 days our daughter, her partner and their two twins joined us and this proved to be very successful in every way. We would certainly recommend anyone who wants to get away from the madding crowd to stay in this cottage. A car is essential as the nearby villages and towns are not within walking distance and be warned the drive is over 1 kilometre long and something of a challenge for a low clearance vehicle!

The owner is very helpful, and the place was spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable - note: bring your own sheets and towels or rent them from the owner. Try to get to the Gorge du Verdon if you can. It's worth a day spent driving through admiring the views. We shopped at the Auchan supermarche 5 mins from the flat. Well stocked and the cheapest petrol in town. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to stay in the area.
