This was our 3rd time staying here in Bruce and Annes lovely house. The outside space is fantastic with a great pool and barbecue area. The barbecue area has everything you need, including a fridge, sink and hot water supply, meaning you don't need to travel back and forth into the house. The pool is fantastic with lots of seating around the edge, complete with a shaded area as well if you need to escape the sun. Inside has 3 big bedrooms, 2 of which are en suite and the 3rd has its own private bathroom. ,Bruce and Anne are a lovely and friendly couple who are always willing to give you advice or help in any way.. The location is perfect with everything you need only a very short drive away. There is a lovely bar/restaurant in the village which is definitely worth going to. for food and drink. Highly recommend this house hence we have stayed there 3 times.
We had a great two weeks at Les Arbieux, Its main attraction is the al fresco lifestyle with an outside shaded dining area c/w fridge, BBQ and sink. There is ample area for sunbathing around the large clean pool that Bruce is fastidious about keeping clean plus an additional patio if you want to dine in the sunshine. They are great hosts who are not intrusive but will give advice on the many places to visit and the attractions local to the area.
This holiday property shares the same building (a former priory) as the owners, but is a self contained unit on two floors, and has extensive views across the valley from the rear patio area. The owners are friendly but not intrusive, giving advice on local night markets, shopping and restaurants. The self contained barbeque with table and chairs and a sink in the private garden was great, as was the fridge which stored cold drinks throughout the day. Fantastic for those really hot and sunny days! The exclusive use of the heated pool (screened by trees and bushes) was superb, and was cleaned early every morning, while the sunbeds and parasols did not cramp the area which was a real suntrap, access being gained via steps down from the garden. The accommodation caters for 8 although there are bunk beds in a family ensuite room, the other 2 bedrooms also having their own shower rooms. There is a lounge/dining area with 'french windows' to a small patio, and a galley kitchen which was quite adequate. The rental price of the property bearing in mind this area of France is very reasonable for the facilities on offer, and we had a lovely holiday with gorgeous weather during our 2 week stay. We saw little of Bruce and Ann although both were very hospitable, and we shared an evening of drinks and nibbles on the patio during one evening, and went to a night market with them in Monflanquin. All round it was a holiday to remember.
