                                                                  What more could you want?

                                                                  We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at Plein Sud and would recommend the house highly to families or friends who want to get away from it all but enjoy comfortable and well provided accommodation. We were a family of four with two young frown ups in tow and we were all able to find a space of our own. The house is well appointed, spotlessly clean and easy to maintain. The furnishings are of high quality and the kitchen has every utensil you could possibly need. The garden is a joy, with something to appreciate in every corner and places to sit in the sun or shade. A particular strength is the pool area which feels very luxurious with day beds, loungers and a covered area with sofas, ipod dock etc. As you can probably tell the owner Angelika works hard to make her home the prefect holiday retreat for the two months she rents it out. Angelika was a joy to deal with, helpful, reassuring, and although close on hand when needed incredibly discrete and non-intrusive. We took our dog with us on holiday for the first time and he enjoyed it immensely due to the freedom he could enjoy and the number of friendly dogs in the vicinity. You can walk out in to the vineyards straight from the house and soak up the rural atmosphere. Easy trips can be made to the coast if required. A car is needed as there are no shops within walking distance, but in the car the low key town of Vidauban is minutes away. This is one of those occasions on which one is torn between telling everyone they must go there and wanting to keep a wonderful secret to enjoy over and over again. We loved it.

Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet mit einem großen Gasherd, Kühlschrank, Gefrierschrank, zusätzlich Getränke Kühlschrank, etc... Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und stellte uns sogar ein Start Paket an Verpflegung zur Verfügung. Die Lage im Hinterland der Massiv des Maures ist sehr ruhig, die Nachbarn allesamt sehr nett und trotzdem ausreichend weit entfernt. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in Vidauban (5km) reichlich, in Les Arc gibt es einen Mega Supermarkt - auch nur 10 km entfernt

                                                                  Dieses Haus war perfekt für uns als Großfamilie mit zwei kleinen Kindern.Das Haus ist geräumig mit geschmackvoller Einrichtung. Die Küche ist wie zu Hause ausgestattet.Der Pool wurde gut gepflegt und war zum Toben und Schwimmen gleichermaßen geeignet. Die Lage inmitten der Landschaft ohne unmittelbare Nachbarn ist so, wie man sich die Provence vorstellt. Es gibt gute Wandermöglichkeiten, Möglichkeiten zu ganz unterschiedlichen Ausflügen vom Mittelmeer bis zum Lac de la Croix mit Lavendelfeldern.Man kann in kleine Orte fahren, es gibt Märkte, Kultur und Natur pur. Angelika hat uns herzlich empfangen und war sehr hilfsbereit. Doris und Arno mit Familie

                                                                  Plein Sud and the surroundings are truly amazing. The house itself is a true 'Home from home' spotless, spacious and fabulously furnished with fantastic views of the mountains and vineyards from every window. We all loved every minute of our holiday and spent a lot of the time around the pool and spending long evenings at the East Terrace area. We visited St Tropez, Monte Carlo, the local market in Vaubaun and on Angelika's recommendation the Grand Canyon de Verdon which is well worth the hours drive and is magnificently beautiful and very uniquely undisturbed. A car is essential. Angelika is a very warm, kind, extremely accomodating lady. We feel so privileged that you allowed us into your home and have given us some wonderful memories, THANKYOU.

Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist super; geschmackvolle Einrichtung, traumhafte Lage im Pinienwäldchen mit angrenzenden Weinfeldern, ideal für Erkundungen zu Fuß. Der Swimming pool ist wunderschön angelegt, sehr gepflegt, ideal mit genügend Platz im Schatten für heisse Tage. Wir und unser Hund haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und werden gerne wiederkommen.

Cycling through the Camargue with its black bulls and white horses and a visit to the Chateau des Baux de Provence - one of the finest historic sites in France are a short drive away.
