Fabulous house with a extremely spacious garden
If it hadn't been for the unseasonably poor weather it would have been a perfect holiday. The owner are extremely helpful and pro-active. A perfect home for families with kids
A wonderful, spacious property
I rented the villa for a fortnight and it was everything I had hoped it would be, spacious, well equipped and in a lovely position. The pool was huge, as was the garden so the children were not on top of each other. The river at the end of the garden was a beautiful added extra. We found a deep swimming pool after a bit of wading up stream and swam in it every day. My brother in law also brought his inflatable kayak which the children rode the tiny rapids in.
The villa was really well equipped, without being chi chi. It is set well back from the road and not near any other property so we felt wonderfully relaxed and remote. However, it is only about an hour from Nice and 10 minutes to Le Thoronet with the butcher and bakery. There were loads of supermarkets close by. We went to the market in Cotignac (amazing) twice and twice rented kayaks at the great place on the road between Carces and Lorgue. A really fun afternoon activity for adults and children.
Jonathan (the owner) was so hopeful and reasonable about breakages. He has even posted back to me something I left at the villa. Marceline and Claude, the french couple that help him, were close by and couldn't have been kinder. I definitely intend to rent this villa again. It is a wonderful place, the stuff of childhood memories.
A great place to spend a relaxing family holiday
The house was ideal for all the family, and there was plenty of room for 10 of us, with lots of equipment etc for babies and toddlers.The location in the vineyard provided peace and quiet in the countryside, yet within easy access of local villages and towns.
Dear Gordon, many thanks for your comments, we are glad you had such a nice time at our villa and look forward to having you visit again in the near future.
Family friendly villa in excellent location
We really enjoyed our two week stay at the villa. It is in a beautiful quiet setting and is an excellent location to explore both Provence and the coast. The villa and gardens were spacious which made it ideal for two families sharing and the pool was fantastic. It was an added bonus to have the trampoline and football goal for the kids as well as the table tennis table which was used by everyone. This is certainly a place to consider returning to.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We are very happy that you had a successful holiday at our villa and look forward to having you stay again one day.
A lovely hideaway in the Var
We have just returned from a family holiday in Le Thoronet. The listing description of the villa was accurate and our overall impression was of a clean, well maintained and spacious property. The house was well equipped with everything you could possibly need for young children. The grounds were extensive and the 4 children all enjoyed exploring and playing in them. The pool proved a big hit with children and adults alike. The setting was peaceful and convenient for visits to nearby towns and villages such as Villecroze, Cotignac and Aups and also further afield to St Tropez. We found that all the restaurants we went to were happy to accommodate us (10 people) by putting tables together etc. and one of our favourite places for lunch was St Croix on Lac St. Croix for the fantastic views of the lake.
Jonathan and his family were friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends or relatives. Many thanks Jonathan.
Thank you for writing the review, it is always appreciated. It was lovely to meet you and we are a very glad you had a great holiday at our villa. Look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Great villa, excellent location & family friendly
Had a fantastic one week stay here. It was a great base to explore the Coast and numerous local villages and towns from. Rooms were spacious and well laid out, perfect for two families with small children, but could easily have accommodated more. A vast selection of toys, books and DVDs and a huge enclosed garden to keep the kids amused. Pool was lovely and a great size. We really enjoyed our stay only wish it could have been for longer but would definitely return.
Thank you for the review and glad you had a great holiday at our villa. Look forward to having you stay again soon. Jonathan
