9.2 / 10 Alan Mace -- Shrewsbury 23 July, 2017

This was a good house with a very welcome pool although it was somewhat further to the village/ harbour than we expected with quite a stiff uphill return walk. The driveway and steps up to the house would not suit anyone with walking difficulties.
The owner was in good contact with us and anxious to ensure that we were happy with our rental.
I would recommend this property, which has three bedrooms, for four people but it might be a little tight for six.

This was in the prefect place - a very good shop five minutes away and the beach with restaurants and cafes just beyond. We've stayed nearer the Cannes end of the Cote d"Azur before and this is so much nicer - very French, very unpretentious - a bucket and spade holiday but in the Med. The pool was great and the balcony for eating outside was perfect. The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of everything - seats, garden furniture, dishes. We were made very welcome and everyone was very helpful.
