We appreciate its peace and beauty with the Parc Naturel all around us, and vines as far as the eye can see!

The views to the Mediterranean on numerous walks are breathtaking.

Come and sample life in a French hamlet! With a tasty bread and pastry delivery and new boule parc to complete the experience.

La Fontaine is excellent for family holidays with plenty of space for relaxing in and out of the warm summer sunshine.

The pool is always in demand!

Escape the bustle of modern life, yet stay connected, in this charming hamlet. Enjoy the private, solar heated pool in the sunken garden with sun beds for relaxation.Dine al fresco, on the balcony or in the cool cav in the heat of the day, on local produce bought in the markets and prepared in the spacious, well appointed kitchen. Then retire to comfy bedrooms with fans and flyscreens to ensure a peaceful rest!

Gite spacieux de charme dans une nature sauvage et verdoyante. Très agréable pour une famille.

  • 5 of 5

Accueil chaleureux de Jill et Dick qui ont su nous mettre à l'aise dès notre arrivée. Espaces extérieurs autour de la piscine bien agencés et très appréciables pour les réunions familiales. Nombreuses activités sportives possibles et calme assuré pour se ressourcer. On recommande cet endroit dans un petit village atypique.

Total tranquility in an area with so much to do

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous stay with 3 children (8-11). Lots for the kids to do - canyoning, kayaking and carting were the favourites - and yet very relaxing too with some great eateries nearby. Would thoroughly recommend.
