As they are very aware of ecological impacts on the environment, they have installed Geothermal heating in the house. The swimming pool, which they will share with their guests, will undoubtedly charm you from the very moment you enter the estate thanks to the discrete Provencal influence the owners have brought in. Should you wish to leave the swimming-pool, just rest on the terrace for some quiet time; go and play pool table in the Games room, Pinball machines from the 60s, table Football, Piano... Complementary information: The official organisation Gîtes de France graded the «Gîte de la Villate» 5 stars/ears of corn (n°15681) in July 2005 & every year since. Bookings are operated by the Gîtes de France. More

I'll keep this succinct - book this wonderful place before someone else beats you to it. The word idyllic doesn't even come close to describing La Villate.
