For some reason there doesn't seem to be an option for 'villas etc' but I would have liked to check places out before we made a decision on where to stay so thought this might be useful for someone. Maison Marianel is a lovely place and we wouldn't hesitate to return so it also seemed a good idea to give them the good review they deserve.
Maison Marianel is split into three holiday apartments and the owners live in a fourth within the house. We had the smallest of the three, at the top of the house, but it was still a great space with plenty of room. The kitchen had everything we could have needed, the bed was huge and there were some lovely and useful touches like lanterns and candles for the terrace, a folder with info on the local area and wi-fi so if you want to you can keep in touch with the world.
We had two private balconies, one of which had the sun all day. The pool is lovely and kept really clean and the pool terrace gets the sun all day so if you really want to (and we did!) you can sunbathe from 8-late! The house is surrounded by vineyards and the house's own woods so you feel wonderfully cut off from the world and not at all overlooked.
Vivian and Leif, the Danish couple who own and run the place are lovely, managing to strike a great balance between being around when you need them - helping with restaurant bookings and suggestions for trips out - but not obtrusive at all. All in all a wonderful place to stay.
