                            Had a fantastic week. Great house and a lovely place to stay. Used the bikes every day to buy fresh bread in Vaison or visit the local municipal pool. Good swimming at Les Baumettes also! Thanks again.

                            So many sights and so much history here in Provence it deserves another visit. We thoroughly enjoyed the bounty of the big juicy grapes hagning from your vines. They were some of the finest eating ever!

                            Our best stay in France to date! What a gorgeous, relaxing and interesting house - an ideal place for a getaway break. So much room we could lose each other for hours - if we wanted to!
