A wonderful, characterful house - not swanky but very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Lovely owners, great pool, private but not too remote, undisturbed views across the valley. Can't imagine what more you'd want.

Idyllic, set in the hills of Provence

  • 5 of 5

This converted manor house is perfect for an escape away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Within a matter of minutes I felt that this place did what most 2 hour long beauty treatments ought to do. Rather than being a short lived moment I could spend hours and days and if I had them, weeks, in this beautiful villa. Whilst keeping with traditional features of French villas in the region it still had the necessary features of a comfortable stay with a modern bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. The pool is set amongst acres upon acres of Olive Tree land. The smells and bright colours of the fresh fruit and flowers being grown on the land is a rarity warmly received. It won't take you long to realise that this villa was built with love and is still well taken care of and as a guest I couldn't have felt more at home. I would thoroughly recommend this villa for a romantic retreat or a family holiday, it quite easily caters for both. If you stay for a longer time then you can hire a car and take the easy drive down to the coast for Antibes or Nice and purchase some of the fresh meats and fish for the bbq back at the villa. Perfect. You can see why the artists still live here.

Fantastic Swimming pool!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful property with all you can want from a property in the South of France. It is such a lovely spot situated in a secluded part of Provence with uninterrupted views looking across the valleys. We spent most of our time by the pool with book and pastis in hand :) The property itself is characterful and a nice cool temperature inside. Rooms are well decorated. Highly recommend this property. Great for either exploring the local region or just lazing around the pool and outdoor dining. Will definitely be back.

This is a lovely period property, set in a quite location, with excellent views of the provence countryside.
