“Beautiful villa in stunning setting, very private and tranquil”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

There are a couple of other villas in the same village, and we were so happy to have chosen L'Oiseau Chantant. The others looked nice but L'Oiseau Chantant did not disappoint in any department.
On arrival you are greeted by gates, a large pebbled area for up to five cars I would guess, great if travelling in convoy, and a beautifully present villa and garden. There is a stream that runs along the side of the plot, you can hear it as soon as you step out your car, lovely sound.
It's totally safe with no access for children. The villa itself was fantastic, better than the pictures, and everything we had hoped for. It's large, very clean, modern, well furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The garden is private and enclosed. The kids loved the outdoor space and that it wrapped around the villa, great for losing little sisters! They also loved the wildlife they found, lizards and dragonflies mostly. The pool was a great size and well maintained, the pool man came 2 or 3 times a week. It is not heated and very cold! The kids didn't mind one little bit but for us adults, you had to be brave! Once in though you get used to it, or maybe I was just numb!
There are lots of seating and a great bar b que, cooks to perfection!
There is a friendly bistro about 250m away, very child friendly, no frills but serves good honest food.
The villa is perfectly located for you to explore the surrounding area, it has so much to do and see. About an hour to the beach, Barcelona was just over a 2 hour drive, but worth a day trip.

Overall the villa felt like home for our two weeks in France. It was plenty big enough for our party, and provided very comfortable relaxed accommodation. There was nothing in the villa that was 'precious' so you'd feel on edge with children around, if that makes sense? Family proof I guess. Difficult to fault really, exceed our expectation. We were very sad to leave.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the peaceful location and the functionality of the villa.

We realise you had initial concerns on your arrival, and we think we responded quickly to those concerns. We had previously been satisfied with the job done by and willingness of the pool man and housekeeper, although you might be interested to know that during your stay we accepted the resignation of both these individuals.

The villa and pool are now cared for by a new team who are focused on the high standards guests such as yourselves expect.

We would be pleased to see you again in the future if you wished and would like to offer you a good discount for your help in detecting issues that needed our attention. Our aim is for our guests to love the villa as much as we do.
