Additional amenities & feature info
'La Tuiliere' is a truly Provencal family farmhouse - very spacious with exposed beams, stone walls, terracotta tiles, fireplaces and wood-burners for the cooler spring and autumnal evenings. We want our guests to feel comfortably relaxed and 'at home' so provide family games and books but recognise that internet connection is increasingly vital for those taking working holidays or for googling information. We have wi-fi access and a local (English) friend and computer expert is available to help should you experience any problems.
