Client Comments

For two or three families sharing it is ideal. Great pool area, great facilities and absolutely stunning views in this beautiful part of France. Thompson Family, July 2008. We were very pleased with our villa and the service we had from yourselves, the owner, and his keyholder in Montseret. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. A week wasn't long enough and when we return to this area, we'll certainly check out South France Villas again. Colin Perriment, August 2007
