We spent a lovely week at La Bergerie in August where our only disappointment was it wasn't two weeks.
The owners were so attentive to our needs making sure we had everything we required, without ever imposing on our stay. The cottage is well appointed, all the rooms are adequately sized and everywhere was clean on arrival. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of space, although the cottage will comfortably house 6.
Outside there is so much space, perfect if you have children who like to run around. The swimming pool is a lovely size and not too deep. We are keen runners and found several routes away from main roads which were perfect. They would be equally perfect if you just prefer a stroll. Or just sit around on one of the two terraces and enjoy the sun.
There are supermarkets 5 minutes away in two directions so you have a lot of choice where to shop. Pezenas is equally close and is a lovely place to wander around with some great restaurants. Don't forget to visit the market on Saturday but be warned, it gets very busy. If you're looking to have a beach day, there are lots to choose from. We visited Vias Plage twice which is about 25 minutes drive. The beach and sea are perfect for children, even those who can't swim well. The sea is quite shallow and stays shallow for some distance.
If there was one thing people should know, then it's that the property stands quite close to the D13. This is a main road and can get busy. It really didn't affect us. You can hear the traffic but the property sits down, away from the road. When you're in the pool or on the lower terrace you don't really notice it. We never noticed it inside the cottage.
All in all, we would highly recommend La Bergerie and would have no hesitation in returning.
We do not know where to start; there is so much to commend the Old Vineyard. It is such a gorgeous place, inside and out, somewhere you want to spend time in and somewhere you enjoy returning to after a day out; it just feels so homely. However, the facilities are also great: the pool, the table tennis, the bikes...Over and above though, the welcome, care and commitment for you as guests that Slimane assures you is second to none. His generosity knows no bounds and he is just a wonderful host who wants to help you in any way he can; it seems that nothing is too much trouble. You know it is a rare thing to find such authenticity and it matters. We will return, sans doute, et heureusement, bient tot.
