Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this beautiful location for 4 days. The cottage was just perfect, great little kitchen, all you need to prepare delicious meals to eat outside at the table and chairs overlooking an idyllic polo field. If you're really lucky you even get to watch pactice matches! Lizzie is on hand should anything be missing and is friendly and helpful. The plunge pool was most welcome during our stay too. The bed was large and comfortable, the air conditioning most effective and there is a great TV to keep you in touch with the world. The bathroom was clean and effective, great shower. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here to get away from it all and truly unwind!

What a lovely place to stay! The gîte was simple, quiet and charming. Our hosts, Lizzy and Olivier, were very helpful and friendly, making sure we understood the in's and out's of the gîte, ensuring we were settled and on hand for any questions that cropped up. The smell of Wild Mint and Thyme, the local wine, eating in the garden, watching polo practice matches and even an invitation to play cricket with some local families all added to the experience. Remote, but only 20 mins from Aix. We hope to return.

This was an excellent place in which we had an excellent holiday! The description of the property was accurate and we were not disappointed. Lizzie and Olivier were great hosts, helpful with suggestions of places to shop or visit when asked and interested in what we had been up to when they saw us. The property is truly peaceful with its own secluded garden and we enjoyed use of the pool. We shopped locally - the butcher was great and the greengrocer superb! We had bicycles with us and had some fantastic rides. Aix is close enough to go in for a morning or an evening meal. I would certainly recommend this property to family and friends. We were sorry not to see a polo match whilst there.

  • Notes on accommodation: This is a beautiful cottage in a rural location yet not far from the buzz of city life in Aix en Provence. It would suit couples wanting a relaxing break with the option of vibrant town life. The kitchen is fully equipped including a gas cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer. The bathroom has a shower and there is also a washing machine. We regret we are unable to accept pets. Outside: There is a terrace with views over the cottage's private garden and the fields and vines beyond. There is also a barbecue, table and outdoor seating. Our basin is open daily for Cabanon guests between the following times 8:00 - 12:30 and 14:30 - 18:00 and is closed for our personal use the remainder of the time. There are sun loungers by the basin and it is surrouned by traditional dry stone walls. It is also less than a minute's walk from the Cabanon. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are included. The property is cleaned after each guest weekly/monthly depending on the length of their stay.
