Guestbook comments from the manager
After many hours of internet search we finally got sight of Bel Air. The choice showed to be very successful - the place fulfilled all our expectations plus much more. Fabulous location, quality of house and garden and unlimited possibilities of privacy. The village has charm and anything that cold-blooded Nordics might expect to experience without too much effort. Bel Air is a place the owners can be very proud of. / Elise and Leif-Erik and family, 9-16 July 2005.
After travelling through France for a week we arrived at this beautiful villa with its breathtaking views. Both our families have had a wonderful time at your lovely home in Provence. We will never forget this holiday and hope one day to return. / Sue & John, Tony & Hilary with families, 24 - 31 July 2005.
