Le Contadour is truly a home from home equipped with absolutely all that is needed. The views from the apartment are stunning at all times of day and the beautifully unspoiled village of Gattieres is a few hundred yards up the road - beautiful! Liz and Quentin were a delight - nothing was any trouble for them. We will most definitely return.

We spent a month in Liz and Quentin's well located and wonderfully comfortable Le Contadour apartment. We did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back. The village of Gattieres is less than ten minutes walk away and a lovely stroll each morning to get fresh baguettes and locally grown strawberries to take home for breakfast. The big decision for each meal was whether to eat on the balcony or on the terrace - both excellent positions with lovely views down the valley of the Var river to the Mediterranean Sea. There are plenty of options to dine out in the village and nearby villages too. The apartment is twenty minutes from Nice down a good fast road (once you get to the bottom of the mountain) and the airport and shopping centre at St Laurent du Var. Other easily accessible sights include the beaches (our favourite was Antibes) and the snow capped mountains behind St Martin de Vesubie, the scenic drives to Greolieres and the tourist towns of Vence, Grasse and Biot. Italy is about an hours drive away. Liz and Quentin have left some great info for visitors and we worked our way through all their suggested day trips during our month, tho some days we simply stayed at home and enjoyed the beautiful pool and the quiet village life. The apartment was clean, light and airy with a great balcony running along the front and opening off the main bedroom and lounge room. The second bedroom is smaller but would be ideal for children as it is tucked away down a little corridor. The bathroom is large and the kitchen has most things you need to cook up the wonderful produce found in the region. Best of all were our wonderful hosts Liz and Quentin who were on hand to assist with anything we needed but also were unobtrusive during our month long stay. We had some long and interesting discussions over a few drinks and they have a multitude of stories to share about their travels. We were taking a bit of a risk in booking a place for a month, sight unseen in a village we did not know, but it turned out to be one of the best holidays we have had and we really felt at home at Le Contadour. We highly recommend it.

PS If you have children, try and get hold of a copy of Liz's children's book Tabbies and Tigers in Provence (by Elizabeth Brunton and on Amazon) as it provides a great introduction to the Murphy's cats and to Le Contadour and the village and surrounds.
