We stayed for one week in this villa last year and I can't wait to go again. It truly is an amazing place! When we arrived we couldn't believe how luxurious this villa is! Two of the rooms have Jacuzzi baths and the other has an en-suite shower. There are 3 terraces which are beautiful and none are over-looked. To be honest it was nothing short of the set of a vogue photo shoot!
Then there were all the extras that we weren't expecting like the little vegetable patch that we could pick fresh fruit and veg from, the pizza oven that was great fun and the paper and croissants delivered to your door on a Sunday. Noelle the owner is lovely, she was really helpful with recommending places and very generous in her stocking of the cupboards and fridges.
The location is great, you are not over-looked and have beautiful views over the forests. A short 10 minute walk takes you to Claviers, where there are some lovely restaurant and bars we went to "La cley d'songe" twice because it was so lovely, to eat in the garden there and the food was fantastic.
We are all 26-27 year-olds but this is the type of place that my parents would love as well as families with children.
There are 10 of us this year on our annual trip, so we won't fit this year but we look forward to returning soon.
