We were absolutely blown away with this beautiful setting, fabulous accommodation, amazing food and what can we say about the hosts Thea and Eric are more than charming they really know how to look after you. Thea is bilingual French and English and Eric , who should have been a French film star speaks English in a way that makes you swoon!!!! Seriously though nothing is too much trouble for them and any quirks that your family might need are met discretely and in such a laid back way that it would make any parent weep with Joy. I witnessed this when I was there.
I would highly recommend this for couples young and old and for families. We loved it and wished we were not moving on to Nice for a week. The breakfast is to die for apricot jam with apricots from the garden flavoured with lavender( and we got a jar home with us) and lots of other wonderful local produce all made beautifully by Thea. The Table d'Hote on the Friday night was the highlight of our holiday with wonderful food and our hosts and their helpers putting us all at ease and the group of all ages including children and several nationalities communicating in the easiest and most enjoyable way making for a really magical experience.
Thea helps with suggestions and directions of places to visit and places to eat, even making the reservations for you so that there is no hassle for you. We particularly loved the Abbey nearby where we joined the monks for vespers, the hilltop villages and the AMAZING ochre mine equally delightful was just chilling out at Domaine Saint Jean in the gardens, in the huge pool or at Eric's Bar. As you can see we really loved it and I really need to add that the hosts really make this holiday, everything is as I and others have described fabulous food etc but nothing about it is pretentious , it is the ordinary made extraordinary !!!!!! I have never felt so well looked after. Anything that you might need to make your holiday go well Thea and Eric can accommodate . There are very few places that you can say that about. I cannot wait to go again there is so much to see and do. Thankyou Annie Baikie and Ed Bateman
