Amazing Home! Perfect Location! Fabulous Host!
Amazing Home! Perfect Location! Fabulous Host!
My husband and I and two other couples stayed here this past June for a week. This was our honeymoon as we couldnt take a trip last year when we were married. Our stay here was so much better than anything we could have expected. We were so impressed with the home upon arrival. I don't think the photos they have truly do it justice. The house is a bit larger than we anticipated and perfectly taken care of. I am a bit of a neat freak so this definitely suited my tatste. My favorite part of the house of course was the outdoor area and the pool, but the kitchen and the outdoor balcony were close seconds. The house is totally private you can hear the birds chirping in the morning, but also conveniently located to anything that you would need to fill up the fridge on your stay. We were so close to Aix and Marseille. One couple even took a day trip to St. Tropez. Be sure to add Cassis to the list of places you visit as it is absolutely stunning. Andrew was very professional and super quick and helpful with all of my inquiries. the housekepers have their own seperate home and can help with any recommendations of things to visit. The best recommendation they gave was to visit the Cahteau Pioline which is in town and gorgeous! We plan to go back either this year or the next with our immediate family. We couldnt have asked for a better trip and place to stay for our first visit in the South of France.

La Residence is even better than the pictures. The location is perfect for touring Provence, an hour from almost everywhere. Aix is 10 minutes.You will need a car. The property is secluded and picturesque. The home is furnished very well and the caretakers are there to help but not intrusive. If you're lucky you'll get to see the wild pigs that cross the street nearby. Highest recommendation!
