Wonderful stay in a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

what you see on the photos is what you get: A lovely French house provencale, with splendid space inside (if the weather is bad - which fortunately rarely is the case in the Provence) and outside. Lovely garden, nice pool, nice terrasse whith different places to sit (sun and shadow). The house and the kitchen is well equipped with all one needs for a holiday stay even if you want to cook the French way (but you should not miss to try the different good restaurants in Fontvieille which are only a footwalk away).

The contact with the house owner was uncomplicated and friendly.

Finally, we felt very safe in the house. There is an automatic entrance gate, it is possible to park the car (or two) inside and the property is surrounded by high walls. If you bring your dog (which is allowed) it can't escape from the property.

To sum up, we would not hesitate a second to return to this house for another holiday stay in the future.

The only critics I have to mention is that the dish washer didn't work. We were informed from the owner that he had noticed it the day we arrived (the previous guests had ruined it and didn't tell him) and that he will buy a new one . So, in the meanwhile there should be a new dish washer in the house.

Fantástica estancia

  • 4 of 5

Estuvimos muy a gusto. La casa es preciosa y tiene todas las comodidades para esta época del año (diciembre). Si hay que comentar algún inconveniente es que una de las cuatro habitaciones tiene un poco lejos el baño. Pero por el resto, todo estupendo. La casa queda a cinco minutos andando del centro del pueblo, muy práctico para cualquier compra. Además está situada en una zona estratégica, cerca de las bonitas ciudades de Arles, Avignon y Nimes. El propietario fue muy agradable y atento e incluso nos hizo sugerencias de lugares a visitar y buenos restaurantes. Nos encantaría repetir más adelante. Gracias.
