This house was perfect. It has absolutely everything you could possibly want/need - it's just like being at home (but warm and sunny!). The property is well maintained and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It's just as shown in the photographs.
It's a pleasant walk into town where there are several very good restaurants. Twice weekly market in town which was great for fresh fruit and veg.
Paul, the manager, is very friendly gave us lots of useful information and tips on places to visit (Gorges du Verdon - it's a long drive but well worth it).
We had a very enjoyable two weeks here - had some great days out and great days just chilling by the pool.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family.
Perfect Villa in perfect location
The villa is just as described, well equipped in an excellent location. It was in a very good state when we arrived and the welcome pack was perfect. It was very hot when we were at the villa and the walk to the village whilst shaded was a bit tiring. It is about 25mins round trip to get the morning bread. The local caretaker was very good but not at all intrusive. The markets in the village are fine as are the local shops. We thoroughly recommend it.
