About Samantha Telfer

We are a family who have holidayed in provence for more than 35 years and bought this house in 2002 in order that we all had somewhere to meet and enjoy the area for many summers to come.

Based in the UK, we are a family who work both in the hectic worlds of media and international development and so very much look forward to our summer holidays in the unrivalled beauty of provence

Samantha Telfer purchased this house in 2002

Why Samantha Telfer chose Provence

We have holidayed in provence since we were small children and our mother fulfilled a dream to buy a house in our favourite village back in 2002.

We still can't quite believe we have a house in Fontvieille and are watching our own children play in the pool!

What makes this house unique

The house's position at the top of a plot of three properties offers an enviable woodland backdrop which offers the impression of being in the middle of nowhere when you sit on the steps of the pool and look back at the trees. The house is well equipped for families of all ages a real family feel as it is a genuine family holiday home.

Rather special

  • 5 of 5

You always wonder if a holiday let will live up to expectations. In case ours were significantly exceeded and we had a lovely holiday. I felt very at home their and perfectly relaxed. The house boast the biggest and the best pool of any villa we have stayed at ( I have been visiting France annually for 17 years). The accommodation is spacious, a lovely living room and an excellent dining kitchen area. If you don't feel relaxed of an evening with the sun streaming in through 1 of the 4 windows then you will be hard pressed to be relaxed anywhere. The bedrooms again are a notch above what you might expect, big, and well decorated very comfortable. There are lots of shady places to sit. The kitchen was stunning well equipped with more glasses plates etc than anyone would know what to do with. If you like sight seeing , like I do. then it is marvellously well situated. As you can gather I was very well pleased with the stay. Finally the owners local support was excellent

perfect family home from home

  • 5 of 5

This house truly is a home from home. We stayed here with our 4 children and there was anything and everything you could wish for - washing machine for mother, pool toys for kids, various outdoor seating areas for all and coollness indoors for dad! Huge comfy sofas, large ambling interior and the sound of the cicadas to make us feel almost hypnotised. In this house we were relaxed and comfortale, no need for air conditioning like you need with newer and less considered buildings. The pool is a fantastic size, no chlorine so great for anyone with allergies. And Fontvieille is a divine slice of French heaven with its flowers and shutters, and perfectly situated for day trips and meals out. Thank you, thank you, thank you
