We spent christmas at the House and it was a very nice stay, from the booking to payment until arrival and departure! Very well organized through Private Properties. We dealt with Till Pirnay, who was very responsive to our inquiries and he provided us all the necessary information. The location of this Villa is great because it has a straight view on the countryside. Very calm area. The kitchen was fantastic..
We will definitely rent this house again or highly recommend to friends who intend to visit the south of France!
