A superb place - we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

I can only echo the other fantastic reviews of this place. Gilli and Andre were superb hosts and couldn't have been more helpful when needed, while also leaving us to our own devices. The Cabanon is perfectly equipped with almost everything you could possibly need and the terraced garden is fantastic for relaxing in. The dipping pool was lovely after a hot Provence day. Vidauban is well situated for a number of local markets and vineyards, while the Gorge du Verdon is less than an hour away. I would thoroughly recommend getting a ferry out to the island of Port Cros - just stunning.

Lovely retreat, great hosts. Everything we needed in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to relax and explore the region. Gilli and Andre were always on hand but never intrusive. The cabanon is small but well equipped and excellent wifi. The only flies in the ointment so to speak were the mosquitoes but they were kept at bay from the cabanon by plug in repellent supplied. Thanks Gilli and Andre.

Super little romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at the property we were met by Andre and Gilli our lovely friendly hosts who could not have been more accommodating. They kindly showed us around the cabanon and up to the dipping pool and beautiful gardens. We were so happy to be here after many hours of driving, it was the perfect place to settle and enjoy the sights around Vidauben. The cottage is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and also has the thoughtful addition of books, local maps, leaflets and guides of Provence and the local area. Our dog was made very welcome too! Great communication before our trip. We would highly recommend coming to stay. Thank you Andre and Gilli!

Perfect winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful cottage. Cosy and very clean. We didn't know what to expect from the area at this time of year but it was fabulous. The weather was extremely pleasant and the area offers everything you could want from gorgeous walks to lovely little shops and markets not to mention an abundance of famous french food! We will be back.

A lovely French getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful week-long stay at this gorgeous cabanon in an ideal location. It contained everything that we needed for a relaxing stay, and we can't recommend it highly enough! It was lovely to be able to sit outside the cabanon on a warm evening within your own private patio, and equally nice to be able to walk into Vidauban (around 10-15min walk). The market here on a Sunday morning is lovely, and we ate at a cuban/latino restaurant (O'Rodizio) a couple of times here that we would also recommend. We were able to explore many places from here, including San Tropez, Cannes, Cassis (gorgeous!), the stunning waterfall at Sillans, and numerous local markets (Aups was particularly good). Gilli and Andre are lovely and welcoming hosts, and were always around if we needed anything. Visit this tranquil and ideal cottage if you can! (remember the mosquito cream, there are many!)

We have rented lots of little houses in France and our stay with Andre and Gilli was definitely the best. We could not have asked for better hosts or a more beautiful place to stay. We really didn't want to leave. Vidauban is a great little town with all the facilities you could want and you really can just walk down to town to grab your morning baguette or an evening beer in the square.

The highlight of our stay was using the pool and enjoying the gardens which are lovingly cared for. It was very hot while we were there so the pool and the umbrellas were very necessary.

We really loved staying here and are already planning when we can return!!

Just a few minutes walk into the active authentic Provencal village of Vidauban. With a generous variety of shops and amenities that as everything that anyone could need, including a delightful Sunday morning Provencal market.

Between St Tropez & Gorge Verdon, amidst vineyards & medieval villages this is a beautiful area to explore: hills & valleys', rivers and lakes & only 30 min from the Mediterranean and the Cote d'Azur.

Take advantage of the many activities: swimming, tennis, horse riding, golf, sailing, climbing, walking... or wine tasting at the local chateaux... or eat out in one of the many delightful restaurants, from gastronomical to simple plat du jour...or choose one of the hundreds of books available and just relax in the private garden, surrounded by mature trees and aromatic plants... in the evenings with the backdrop of candle lit lanterns hanging in the trees it's the prefect place to have dinner on the terrace listening to the cicadas & nightingales'...
