Lovely spacious Provencal villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week. The house and setting were perfect for our needs - two families staying together. We could be as separate of as together as we wanted. The younger kids had a fantastic time on the bikes and the table tennis, my older son (aged 17) had a great hideaway upstairs on the balcony, and we all enjoyed the pool & plenty of shady nooks – fabulously refreshing after 30ºC heat! We particularly enjoyed eating outside on the lovely big table. The house and grounds were bigger than expected, clean & tidy, and very well-equipped and it was great to have WiFi.

It was a great base for exploring the area – we got as far as Aix-en-Provence in one direction and Lac de St Cassien & Fayence in the other (rediscovering family haunts for me). Now we want to go back to Provence every year!

We would definitely recommend this villa!

lovely villa in France

  • 4 of 5

The villa is lovely, with a very "homely family" feel about it. The bedrooms are all airconditioned, which, in August is essential. The pool was wonderful and my children and grandchildren had a ball.

We all had a great holiday there. The location is a little difficult to find but when you do get there it's worth it , with lots for the children to do, including a swing and a tree house.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property twice now, once with another family and recently with our two teenage children. Both occasions we have found it clean and well equipped and really have wanted for nothing. The welcome pack is a great addition this year and well received after a long drive!

All rooms are air conditioned - much needed with the Summer heat!

The property is large enough for two families to have their own space when needed but has a huge dining table to come together for meals.

We love the large woodland garden with lots of places to sit at various points during the day - our favourite is the front porch which is ideal for family games.

The pool and patio surround is perfect with ample sunbeds and shaded areas.

We explored the area and found lots to do - our favourite has to be kayaking in the Gorges du Verdon followed by dinner at Tour Tour on the way back. A car is essential!

For us - many happy memories have been made here.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Good, quiet location, clean and well maintained house and gardens ample room for 10 people, A car is a must have. Great pool and garden complete with orchard (we were there with the Cherries) sit in the sun by the pool or in the shade in the wooded garden. Fantastic for kids to play on the tree house and swings (or get them searching for goblins and elves as I did) we have been there with kids from 5 to 21 years old all have a great time.

Endless villages to visit as well as the lake near Gorge Verdon.

Our preferred beach is St Maxime lots of eateries nice beach and free entertainment in the beach side open air theater in the summer. The older ones can get the bus from Les Arc Station (you have collect them as the last bus back is about 5pm)

You can get the boat to St Tropez from here about 14 euro return great trip and views.

All the above trips are around 45 mins from the house

There are 2 large super markets less than 15 mins from the house with farmers markets rotating the local villages the information on all the above is kept in a very useful folder in the house which saves on research before you go.

You can get the train from Les Arc to Cannes and Nice (or anywhere else) from Frejus it runs right along side the Med all the way, great trip.

We will be taking our holidays at La Cigaliere again this year.
