The house was lovely, as described. It sits at the head of a valley and has beautiful views. You can barely see the nearby houses. It is a home, not a holiday house, so has those extra home comforts, a radio in the kitchen and a piano, for example. There is plenty of hot water to the showers (important for me), The beds were comfortable. The pool was big enough to swim a few strokes and was in a sunny position with beautiful views across the valley.
The outdoor seating/dining areas were comfortable with the right mix of sun and shade.
The local village (a 15 mins hike) has an excellent bakery, a food shop and a couple of bar/cafes. The village was big enough to have summer entertainment, There was a village festival the weekend we arrived and live jazz the following Friday.
In the local area we would really recommend a visit to the Col du Loup. Stroll up river from Pont du Loup and swim/picnic at one of the many rock pools. Loads of people but brilliant.
Monika was delightful. It is her home, and the excellent taste in art and furnishing comes from her. She retires to a chalet on the other side of the grounds, effectively out of sight from the house, but is available to clean the pool and mow the acres of grass. She continued to use the garage and laundry room at the back of the house but this was almost invisible to us.
Wifi was based in the chalet so we had internet access for older laptops on the front terrace, but newer technology like phones struggled. There was 3G (possibly 4G?) on the mobile network with good coverage at the house
There were more flies than we were comfortable with, but we were able to keep them out of the house and they didn't spoil our enjoyment of the pool. My daughter got a couple of bites.
