About Mrs Angela Cooper
We are Angela and Russell and are a retired nurse and a retired chef.We bought the land that Maison Cooper is built upon and designed the villa and gardens ourselves.Once completed we spent 3 months a year here and enjoyed it so very much. Now retired we have another home nearby which is our permanent home and our daughter and family live close by. Our son is a yacht master and has a home in the UK but now travels the world. We fell in love with this part of France and now it is our home. Our villa is now a holiday home that we want others to enjoy like we do, for we still spend time there with the family enjoying the amazing views,the beautiful pool, gardens and the peace and quiet.

Beautiful house in a lovely setting
Our week was enjoyed by three generations of the family. It is a very well equipped property in a lovely peaceful setting. Good location for visiting beaches and towns. Would recommend to friends and family. It is a property we would visit again.
Thank you for your review, We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely house in stunning location - relaxing yet within reach of everything
We had a lovely week thank you - in a beautiful and very well maintained property. The facilities, from the effective wifi through to the covered pool - which maintained a good temperature and kept it clean - were all excellent. Annie - who maintains the property and lives next door, is a delightful character and although we had no need to, was happy to be called on if required. This was a new area of France for us, and we are keen to return - both to the area and to this property. Thank you to Angela and Russell (who were in the area and stopped by to see if we were ok) for sharing their lovely home with us.
Thank you for your kind comments we are happy that you enjoyed your stay we hope that perhaps you will visit again in the future
The area is indeed beautiful and we are always pleased to hear of people enjoying it as much as we do
Loved it - beautiful house and garden with wonderful views
Received a warm welcome from Annie & Bernard - the basket of goodies was a really lovely touch. Good location for travelling to places - we did miss having a bar / restaurant within walking distance but it wouldn't put us off returning
Thank you for your comments. Annie and Bernard are indeed a lovely couple and always willing to help in any way. Good to hear you enjoyed touring our area and that you too found the views amazing. Russell and I hope that you come and visit again sometime in the future.
