10 / 10 Ten Days of The Summer 3 September, 2019

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.

The house had everything we needed. Essentials like dishwasher, bbq and summer kitchen.
Delighted our bedroom had aircon.
This village is very pretty, the house is walking distance to everything.
We tried each restaurant and they were all good value..
I was happy I could walk up for the bread every morning.
Loved the pool area as it is so private.
House was clean and Katie answered any questions we had as she has all the local knowledge.
Walk in the vineyards everyday was lovely with amazing views.
We also went to the beach a few days.
We will be back.

Thanks for the bottle of wine also.
