Just to let you know that we had a great holiday in this wonderful villa. For us it was just perfection - a stunning light filled contemporary villa with incredible views from every room (and the pool!) to the delightful village of Rochefort du Gard in the near distance. The photos don't do this place justice. It far more more impressive in reality and anyone that enjoys and appreciates the combination of modern and old are sure to have a good time here.
