Owner's Response: Katia, merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire ce fut un plaisir de vous recevoir et nous espérons vous revoir prochainement, petite precision, le second gîte n’est pas attenant mais au dessus de la propriété, la piscine est commune mais c’est bien entendu précisé sur l’annonce, le gîte bénéficie d’une terrasse, d’un patio et d’un solarium totalement indépendant. Merci à nouveau pour votre recommandation. Denis

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We've really enjoyed our stay at l'Olivier!

The little house is absolutely charming and the view of the Liberian is just amazing. The private outside space is pretty huge (three places).

The house is equipped with everything you need (in good quality). It was spotlessly clean.

Denis is a very kind and helpful host.

We recommend staying at l'Olivier!

Wir haben uns von Beginn an sehr wohl gefühlt. Für und war alles perfekt, von der Freundlichkeit, der Gastfamilie, über das Ambiente und die Erholung. Das Haus ist klein aber fein und super gepflegt inkl. des Außenbereiches, mit Pool. Danke für die schöne, ruhige,tolle Zeit bei Euch.
