Romantic Studio

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay. We are so pleased we found this gem. This place is so picturesque and filled with charm. We had a wonderful stay. The studio is very comfortable, nicely decorated and well equipped. The pool was great. The property is well situated and a short drive to markets, supermarkets and restaurants. We would recommend a visit to The Ardeshe and Mont Vontoux. We hope to return.

Family holiday in this beautiful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from a fabulous week staying in the Old Stone Cottage, the house is spacious, airy and has beautiful views over the lavender fields. The house has a stunning swimming pool which we spent every day relaxing around. The house is very close to a number of small villages each hosting a local market with lots to see and do - if you can drag yourself away from the pool that is. Mike and Glynn were great hosts and made us all feel very much at home.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us - two families - stayed here for 2 weeks in July.

The Cottage is lovely, clean, comfortable and has a beautiful courtyard where we ate every day.

Kitchen has all mod cons and the W/Machine and Dishwasher came in very useful!

Owners Mike & Glynn live next door and couldn't be more friendly and helpful.

Freshwater pool just fantastic, especially with no chlorine so much kinder to skin and eyes.

Quiet location but easy to drive - car a must - to local villages / markets.

We were also very happy that all linen including towels were provided, saving us space in our suitcases.

We were all delighted to have found this property and will definitely return again.
