Client Comments

We have just arrived back from a holiday at Domaine Fontaine du Mas, where we also got married, and we cannot say enough good things about this property and South France Villas.  We went on holiday to a different property with South France Villas last year, which was also great and we visited Domaine Fontaine whilst in the area and fell in love with it - we asked if we could transfer our deposit, that we had already paid on a property we didn't like as much, and this was all sorted out for us seamlessly. From booking this property a year before, Yvonne and the team have been so helpful to me - it was a stressful time planning a wedding abroad without the help of a wedding planner, so there were moments where stress got the better of me, but any issues I had or things I needed were dealt with promptly and kindly. There is also a property manager at Domaine Fontaine who helped us book our marquee and find wine and who provided all the services we needed once out there-including fresh croissants to the door every morning!! Like I said, I can't say enough about South France Villas, they really helped us have a perfect wedding. Josephine and James, South France Villas Clients, May 2016
We had indeed a very beautiful vacation at Fontaine de Domaine de Mas. It is a wonderful place with comfortable houses and a picturesque garden and facilities (pool, tennis, etc.)  No doubt that the kind and friendly attention and assistance of the administrator, did contribute a lot to the total picture.Josef, August 2013
This is a property that combines charm, luxury, authenticity, a beautiful region and a warm welcome. The pool and the tennis court were enjoyed by both the children and the adults. The gardens are beautiful and perfectly maintained (the gardener comes-by every day to service the pool and garden.) Equally, if there are any problems with the house, the repair-man comes within a day. The property is familial and traditional for calm holidays. All that you need by way of shopping is 10 minutes away at St Ambroix. There is even a possibility of ready-made meals to be provided by the owner on request. We were a group of 20 friends and family members spanning 4 generations and everyone had an excellent holiday (15 days in July) thanks to the quality of the property (spacious and charming), the kindness and availability of the owner and the beauty of the surrounding region. We would recommend this rental to all ages; old, young or families with adolescents or young children.  Pierre C, July 2011, From the Visitor's Book
