Maison Verte was quite simply perfect. It was an integral part of a wonderful holiday and was as relaxing and inspiring as the surrounding countryside, idyllic village and fantastic local food.

“I like to read between the lines ...”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I like to read between the lines … to look at countless photos of potential vacation properties for one that says “I get it”. So, when I came across Maison Vert … I stopped in my tracks. I literally didn’t believe that the picture of the dining room really was at Maison Vert and not a stock photo thrown in for good measure. I even compared photos of the tile from the kitchen to photos of the dining room to see if it matched (which it doesn’t because each room is so wonderfully unique and carefully considered in terms of personality and decoration .) When Christopher, our introductory host, walked us through the house on our initial tour I actually stopped him at the dining room – and hugged him.
Maison Vert is absolutely EVERYTHING it says it is and so much more. It’s intimate and spacious – it’s without fail possibly the perfect rural French Country Home. I almost said house … but it’s much more than a house … it’s a home. The personal touches make you feel after a day of hiking or biking or driving for lunch, that it’s exactly where you want to be. I know most reviews are about whether or not there is great wifi or 3 bedrooms or close to restaurants (which all are YES), I tend to want to tell the emotion of a place. Travelling isn’t just about functionality and efficiency … the really great experiences are about what you feel when you’re there. The lavender smell in Ingrid’s garden, the sound of the Abbey’s bells in the morning, the warm smile from Frederic when you tuck into his restaurant or the sounds of some really cool jazz at La Mengeoire. Maison Vert is a treat. It is a special place that I cannot believe we got to share.
It is with reservation that I write this as I hope this secret gem stays a secret – and whenever I feel the need for tranquility and genuine good times, I hope I can always find an availability there.

“A lovely house and great hosts in a beautiful and very relaxing setting”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

La Maison Verte was just perfect for us - beautifully, and imaginatively, decorated and furnished, retaining the sense of history of the building and surroundings while providing us every comfort for a very relaxing break. Ingrid and Christopher were charming and helpful hosts, with excellent suggestions for outings, shopping and good restaurants. It was bliss to return to Caunes after a day out and choose a book from the extensive and intriguing collection to browse on the terrace before dinner. The area has so much to see that a week was nowhere near long enough, and we are already planning our next trip.
