We would definitely return. The photos on the website do not do the property justice.
The location was very nice. Lots of trees, quiet, beautiful pool, lovely house. The kitchen and bathrooms were all new, clean and well-equipped. There were many places to sit outside in solitude or with your traveling companions. The owner met us at our arrival and gave us a very detailed explanation of the home in French; her English is not very strong. She also called for us and made restaurant reservations and the restaurant owner helped us find an extra room at a bed and breakfast in the area. Everyone was wonderful.
Electrical breakers kept tripping and had to be reset manually many times a day.
Convenient to all locations including several large grocery stores, small bakeries, restaurants, etc.

Higly recommended. I hope we do as well next time.
The property met or exceeded our expectations in all respects. We were particulary happy at how child- friendly it was. From the photographs we thought that the living/dining area might be too formal to easily accommodate two two-year old boys. In fact, it was perfect. The leather couches were ideal and the low table was a perfect play table - a drawer contained many of the owners' four-year old daughter's small toys. The pool house and its outdoor kitchen were very nice. We spent an hour with the owners when we arrived and their love of the house and the effort they have put into it were obvious.
A microwave would have been handy, but far from necessary.
Everything - Avignon, Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, Les Baux etc., are all within 30 to 90 minutes.
