"We used this house in this typical provencale village as a base for 5 weeks in April. Firstly Beth and Tony, the owners, were wonderful to communicate with. We loved the location, the house was well equipped, excellent wifi and plenty of room for us as a couple. English speaking couple available to help with any issues - though none arose. We had family and friends visit us for weekends from England, which worked well. The local village was really friendly, a little shop, bar and restaurant. And it was easy to get to Aix-En-Provence by the regular bus, and we loved spending time in its pretty streets and lunching in squares and the markets. There is a very nice cafe in the square but it didn't open for food until towards the end of our stay around 7th of May. The house itself is really well equipped, especially the kitchen, and feels like a home. The only reason it wasn't a five star is that the shower/bathroom situation gets a little pressed with four adults in the house, and the stairs and living area are awkward if you aren't mobile or are tall, couple of banged heads. It worked really well for us though as a couple with occasional guests. Favourite restaurants nearby - Auberge Des Banettes, looks like a nondescript place on the side of the road on way to Aix, but inside has most beautiful terrace view and really great, exceptional value french menus - we went every week! Trips to Arles, Marseille, Nimes, and the nearby St Maximin were just a few of the other spots we tried. You'll never get bored of the view of the mountain and driving through the vineyards, or drinking the terrific rose wine from the cave cooperative across the road. We would definitely go back."
