“Best of both worlds”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is a charming stone gite, attached to but facing away from the owners' property. It looks out on to some land with mature trees and although you are close to a road, it doesnt feel like it. You think you are in a rural setting but you are also within walking distance of Aix, a pleasant 25 min stroll in but a slightly harder uphill walk back! (The local buses seem to stop at 7.30pm so for longer stays either rent a car or use taxis from town, unless you are happy to keep walking) Upstairs is as comfortable as your own home. Downstairs (kitchen and sitting area) is a little cramped but fine if you only want to cook simple meals and sit outside. Rachel and Jean are very hospitable and will what they can to make your stay. Even their son got involved, giving us an impromptu lift into town one day. It was too cold for the pool but it looked lovely. The well-mannered dogs, especially Dylan, will join you for meals, which just adds to the enjoyment!

“the most amazing way to spend xmas”

My new husband and I were delighted to stay at this lovely cottage over the xmas break. Rachel and her family are delightful and helped us to find our way around Aix and surrounds. Rachel even boked us into a restuarant for xmas eve which was fantastic. This was the most perfect way to spend our xmas/honeymoon and I am sure others will find it a wonderful place to stay as well. I am recommending the cottage stay to friends. We had a hire car, and also used the bus to go into Aix.
