Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Maquisarde for a week as a family of 4 with two young children. The property was clean, well kept and had lots of things to keep the children happy. The pool is fantastic, the Wii was a big hit with the kids and the mini-golf course kept them happy every day. The property is well located for visiting the Verdon gorge and many of the hilltop towns in the Haut-Var region. Tex and Bea were great hosts with useful tips for things to see and do. All in all, we would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.

Super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Famille Maussion et Chapeau,

Nous étions 2 familles (9 personnes), tout le monde a trouvé sa place dans la maison.

A notre arrivée la maison était très propre cela sentait bon la lavande, rien ne manquait au niveau de la cuisine. Tex le propriétaire est très accueillant et les photos sont conformes à la maison.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour, les enfants ont adoré entre la piscine, la table de ping-pong, les jeux vidéos et les sorties en famille (balade, canoé...).

Je recommande vivement cette location car c'est une vrai maison de provence ! et qui correspond aux critères indiqués.

Merci à Tex et Bea

merci pour ce merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueilli chaleureusement par Tex le propriétaire des lieux avec un un magnifique gouter. Nous avons pu apprécier chaque endroit de la propriété que ce soit à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur. De plus les enfants ont pu profiter de la piscine, table de ping pong , télé, nitendo, lecture etc ( endroits très sécurisés).

Nous avons eu affaire à un propriétaire sérieux, attentif à nos attentes que ce soit sportives ou autres.

Merci pour cette semaine très reposante

Eén week was tekort

  • 5 of 5

Net terug van een fantastische week in La Maquisarde. Het huis overtrof onze verwachtingen. Het is nog mooier dan op de foto's op de site. Het was netjes gekuist bij aankomst ; de eigenaar verwelkomde ons heel gastvrij bij aankomst ( 12 uur 's nachts!). Het huis was zeker ruim genoeg voor ons gezinnetje (7 personen). Het huis heeft alle comfort maar vooral de vele terrasjes en de buitenkeuken waren fantastisch. In de omgeving is heel veel te doen voor actievelingen zoals wij : fietsen, wandelen, zwemmen, canyoning, ... We hebben tijd te kort gehad.

Als "god in Frankrijk"

  • 5 of 5

We hebben 14 heerlijke dagen genoten in het vakantiehuis La Maquisarde in Aups. We werden gastvrij ontvangen door de eigenaren. Een bloemetje op tafel, een flesje rose en een biertje lagen klaar in de koelkast en in de mooi opgemaakte bedden lag een heerlijk geurend zakje lavendel. Het huis zag er schoon uit en perfect ingericht. Zeer compleet en comfortabel. De beschrijving klopte precies. De tuin is een eldorado. Vele hoekjes waar je heerlijk kan genieten. Ook het zwembad is fantastisch! Aups is een leuk frans dorp waar 2 x per week een gezellige markt is. En natuurlijk is de omgeving fantastisch met de Georges Du Verdon, Lac de St.Croix en de prachtige stadjes zoals Moustiers St.Marie. En niet te vergeten! Een geweldige fiets-en wandel omgeving!

Car: recommended

In a beautiful olive grove in the southern French sun you'll find la Maquisarde. The big old house with Provencal look will make you feel like a god in France to enjoy peace, space and nature.Both small groups and large groups will enjoy all the facilities. Together with the fully equipped holiday home, living outdoors here can be enjoyed in its purest form with pool, summer kitchen with barbecue , several sunny and shady terraces, table tennis, mountain bikes, 'petanque' ....

The area has much to offer with the azure blue Lac de St Croix where you can enjoy boating and swimming. The Gorges du Verdon is a spectacular tourist attraction with many exciting hiking and climbing opportunities and water amusement like rafting and canyoning.

The lively village of Aups has 2x weekly Provencal market, cozy restaurants and terraces, a large Inter Marche and a few boulangeries for your daily fresh bread. In the vicinity you'll find some picturesque villages of Moustiers and Tourtour. The lavender fields on the plateau of Valensole are 15 minutes. The Mediterranean with the fashionable resorts Frejus, Ste Maxime and St Tropez can be reached in an hour. Further away Cannes, Nice and Monaco can also provide some entertainment.
