I was lucky to discover this incredibly charming place and meet the hosts Sydney and Karin this summer. I was looking for a place in the South of France to relax and spend a few days of vacation. I found it and I will go back! Friends from New York had recommended it and in turn I wish to speak highly of it.
It is nested on the mountains just off the airport so it literally takes less than 30 minutes to get there. The old "bergerie" architecture has been kept mostly intact which gives it lots of character. I was staying in the Chapel room which mixes tastefully Asian and local colors (the hosts used to live in Asia). Bathrooms are roomy and part of the main room which is very nice. What I loved is that you can do everything and nothing: quietly read a book under the shade, hike up the mountain to discover trails and old ruins, drive to surrounding villages, go to the beach for the day ... Breakfasts are amazing and I missed them as soon as I left! I think Sydney and Karin are also part of the experience, ready to do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable, it was nice to share "aperitif". Oh talking about drink, they make a very tasteful "vin d'orange" ... ask for it!
