The home itself is very nice and as represented.
Physical structure was as represented and very nice ...especially the outside kitchen and dining area. All areas were very liveable and well appointed.
Use of the kitchen was a challenge ... the stove controls were out of order, the coffee pot was slow, and the oven was very slow to heat! The key holder spoke almost no English and was unable to explain how to operate appliances. We had to figure them out on our own, which felt like a waste of time.
Wonderful area ... the town center, the proximity to sights and hill towns. Very fine restaurants ... one "relais" within 12 mile.
Nearby Events or Locales:
St. Remy ... walking was more than most would want to do!
Tips or Restaurants:
Insect repellent is a necessity during mosquito season! Otherwise there are excellent markets available for any and all. Experiment on the many good restaurants ... especially the "relais" nearby, name forgotten! All wines were very good.
The GPS coordinates provided were inaccurate and we had a difficult time finding the property.
Check In Out:
Please note that the key holder speaks almost no English. A working knowledge of French is invaluable!
