Thank you so much for being such fantastic hosts! Your home is absolutely beautiful and we have loved lounging by the pool and taking in the stunning views. You have thought of every home comfort possible and we will surely be back soon!South France Villas Client, September 2019.
A truly wonderful place to stay, we enjoyed every minute in the villa and did less activities around in the area cause we only wanted to be in the house as much as possible. Great with space, wonderful pool, all the facilities were excellent and the hostess took really good care of us.South France Villas Client July 2019
I just wanted to say that we had a really wonderful time at this beautiful property and feel very lucky. Thanks for all your help!Mrs A, South France Villas client September 2018.
What can we say! We have had a fantastic fortnight in your beautiful 'Pool House'. We have wanted for nothing in the house - so well equipped and the pool has been a godsend during the hot weather. Having rented many houses in the 21 years we have been visiting France, this rates as the best. A definite 5* rating!! Thank you for your hospitality, you made us so welcome. Do we really have to go home?? Owners Visitors Book, Summer 2017.
