Customer Reviews [1]

Thank goodness we found this last minute ! What a find...
We were the first renters in this lovely house - thank you for a wonderful week. It's like staying in a chic boutique hotel, but you have the whole place to yourself ! Everything is fabulous, the interior design and the garden and pool area. We found it hard to drag ourselves away from the pool and the little ones loved the designated play area. And we are now professional boules players...and pastis drinkers. Thanks to Mark and Gary for making our week so special.
- Alice and Jake and offspring. June 8th - 15th 2024
