Great 2 week stay in beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay here for two weeks. The pictures don't show how nice the house really is. The second terras on the poolside has a big comfortable table, and we spend most of our time there. Aix en Provence and Marseille are close by. You need a car to get to places and do your groceries, but that was no problem for us.

Can definitely suggest this place.

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house with two families and had a wonderful vacation. The house is very spacious and has a big and beautiful garden with a outdoor kitchen and a barbecue. We liked the two terraces. We always had a place in the shadow. The kids also liked the garden with the swimming pool, hammock and trampoline. They even had a forest to play in! The house is in a quit neighbourhood.

Thierry and Chantal are very friendly hosts and gave us a warm welcome.

We all had a great vacation!

Être le premier locataire: quel honneur :-)

Les photos sur Internet affiche 100% la réalité!

On a adorer la piscine, les endroits ombragés, l'environnement...

Il y a beaucoup de choses à voir, à découvrir, à aimer. C'est une région formidable!

Les enfants ont adoré la piscine, la douche extérieur, la trampoline, la grande foret,...

Merci pour des vacances inoubliables!
