About Lesley

We are Lesley and Ken. We are in our early 60s and live in Buckinghamshire. We are semi retired and hope to spend more time in France.

We have four children between us - 2 boys and 2 girls whose ages range between 31 and 39. We also have 3 grandchildren that keep us out of trouble and another grandchild is due soon. We bought the house in 2007 and have been renting it since 2008.

We enjoy spending time in France whenever we get the chance. We have many long weekends Thursday night to Monday night courtesy of the low cost airlines which fly from Luton, Gatwick and Stansted to Nice or Marseille, both of which are within easy reach of the house. We have difficulty fitting in a whole holiday for ourselves as the house always seems to be rented. Still we can't complain

Lesley purchased this house in 2007

Why Lesley chose Draguignan region

Ken has known the village for many years as he has owned a small house in the centre of the village for 25 years. This house is still in the family as it is owned by his daughters.

When our current house came up for sale we saw it as an ideal opportunity to buy something together that was larger and had a garden, as this was something that the smaller house did not have.

The house had been in the same family since it was re-built in the 1960s by a Belgian lady. The house then passed down to her daughter and then onto her grandson from whom we bought it.

We have completely renovated the house and have been renting it successfully now since 2008. We are always fully booked during the summer months and also have lots of lets during the rest of the year.

What makes this house unique

The house is ideally situated, being set in a rural location whilst being only 5 mins drive from the main A8 Motorway which links the main airports and coastal resorts of the Cote d'Azure.

There are many lovely villages within easy reach and also the magnificent Gorge du Verdon is only a short drive away. So if you wantg sea, countryside or mountains they are all available nearby.

Ken has seen many changes to the village over the past years with the provision of restaurants, a supermarket, gym and shops. The village is certainly now on the tourist map whilst retaining it's original charm and character.

The house has ample accomodation with large bedrooms, a balcony and secluded garden. It is an ideal place to unwind and relax as well as providing a convenient base for nearby sightseeing

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The house has a fabulous feel about it and is equiped with everything that you could need for an enjoyable holiday. The private, peaceful garden is ideal for relaxing. The convenience of the nearby motorway connections enabled us to visit Monaco and other coastal resorts easily. We will definately be coming again.' Mr and Mrs Baxter, Witham, Essex.



'This is the best equiped property we have ever rented. Location is ideal for beaches, mountains and the awesome Verdon Canyon. Do not miss the stunning drive along the East Rim'. Ian Forsythe, Merseyside.



'The pictures don't lie - it was just as presented. My wife and I stayed with our four children. There was ample room and superbly furnished with amenities. The property was just lovely. Would definitely recommend, and would definitely return. We like to roam where tourists don't, and found the local advice from the nearby tourist office invaluable, as was the info provided in the house Welcome Book' Michael Smith, Nort

Beautiful L'Adelinou

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at L'Anelinou, The property was exactly as we had expected and much more... It was spacious and clean with a well equipped kitchen, pretty garden with gas BBQ and intimate dining area where we spent many happy hours. The location was very convenient as it was within easy walking distance to the village and local restaurants. Ideally situated for exploring Provence to the full.

Lesley was extremely helpful with organising our stay, we had a most enjoyable visit to this lovely rural french property and would highly recommend it. We will return...
