The Provence dream

  • 5 of 5

The property has real character and is beautifully presented. We enjoyed the sense of space and openness. The furnishing and decoration have clearly been chosen with great care, and there is a modern kitchen. The pool is a particular highlight - outdoor but in an open barn providing ample shade. The location proved to be a great base from which to explore the area.

Très belles maison et piscine, beau jardin mais...

  • 3 of 5

L’accueil chaleureux d’Alex a été gâché par une chaleur humide intense dans la maison. La climatisation ne marchait pas et n’a pas marché durant tout notre séjour (3 semaines) malgré les visites répétées du réparateur totalement inefficace ! Si j’ai loué cette maison c’est parce qu’elle avait une piscine chauffée et la climatisation. Nous avions avec nous deux personnes âgées (80 et 88 ans) et un bébé de 2 ans. Nous avons eu des températures externes de plus de 35°. A l’intérieur cela ne descendait pas en dessous de 26°-27°. Et comme c’était une chaleur humide la plus part du temps… Le réparateur a finalement agit et le résultat a été que si nous laissions la clim plus d’1h30 on avait une inondation sur le carrelage en particulier dans la SDB et le cabinet de toilette de l’étage. Un peu dans les chambres aussi et la cuisine. Le carrelage se transformait en patinoire !! Notre bébé de 2 ans en a fait la rude expérience avec une belle chute dans la SDB et s’est violemment heurté la tête. Donc surveillance continue et obligés d’arrêter la clim sans arrêt. Tout cela pour obtenir une température de 25°-26° au mieux. Le seul moment ou la température était supportable c’était le matin à 6h quand nous ouvrions les fenêtres du rez-de-chaussée.

La maison a beaucoup de charme, le jardin est superbe, et la piscine est très agréable. Attention tout de même à ne pas oublier de mettre des chaussures lorsque vous marchez sur la plage en carrelage de la piscine. Si elle est mouillée c’est une vraie patinoire. Les propriétaires sont charmants et adorables et prêts à vous rendre service si vous en avez besoin.

Owner's Response: J'ai tenu à ce que ce commentaire apparaisse afin de rectifier certaines choses ! Madame ne supporte pas la chaleur et c'est vrai que le sud de la France est réputé pour avoir du beau temps. Le plancher est un plancher rafraîchissant c'est à dire qu'il fait 21 à 22° dans la maison mais c'est trop pour Vous et je peux le comprendre vu vos sérieux soucis de santé, ce qui me désole croyez le ! Autour de la piscine c'est du travertin ce n'est donc pas glissant. Depuis plusieurs années je n'ai jamais eu un seul reproche de mes locataires qui sont ravis de ce mas extraordinaire et qui reviennent depuis 4 ans. Quand à vos parents de 80 et 88 ans ils m'ont dis, en douce, que vous exagériez et qu'ils avaient passé un excellent séjour. Je vous conseille vivement la Bretagne qui sera plus en adéquation avec vos attentes. Chaleureusement Annie

Une adresse à conseiller !

  • 5 of 5

Un très joli mas, spacieux et charmant en tous points, décoré avec goût par la propriétaire qui nous a accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse. Il est rare de pouvoir bénéficier dans une location de vacances de toutes les commodités qui nous sont si chères au quotidien, c'est le cas ici ! La piscine chauffée est un plus qui a été fort apprécié pendant notre séjour !
