Customer Reviews

  • I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our ten days in this house which felt just like a very nice home. It's elegant architecture and it's stunning garden were the perfect surroundings of our holiday. We used the bikes, the swimming pool and ate and laughed at each table outside. We had a very jolly time. Katie was very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the right direction when needed. We went for some beautiful bike rides, loved Pezenas market on the Saturday morning. I think the best market I have every been to actually. Kayaked on the Orb and walked up the Gorge and of course had days where we did very little, apart from buy baguettes from the village. Thank you for a wonderful time spent with our family.

  • Superb home with original features, lovely terrace, garden and pool. Everyone happy from 2 - 65! Check-in was easy and extremely good detailed info about the area. Katie was exceptionally helpful when my daughter's car broke down and took her to her local garage and acted as an interpreter. Many beautiful places to visit. Really recommend Katie as a great host and her home a great place to stay. Thanks for prosecco which helped celebrate my birthday!
