The weather was great, the hosts were friendly and helpful, and the facilities were clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The pool was great too. The village of La Garde-Freinet was fascinating is someone from the other side of the world, showing a different type of life. Longdistance Kiwi

What a lovely late-summer week

Tastefully decorated room, en suite. Clean, comfortable. The park was a great discovery, safe and adventuresome for children. Collecting chestnuts! Friendly and relaxed, easy going, Alban and Jane contributed to a fantastic week in Provence. Catherine B.

Relaxed, joyful, interesting, magnificent setting

A truly wonderful place to be. The guest house stands on its own and offers great privacy for longer stays. And the scenery is spectacular. Oh, and the hosts are lovely, lovely folk too
