Awesome! Your home became “our” home in the South of France

We stayed with another couple. Your house was perfect and had everything we needed, you have decorated it beautifully (and so “very FRENCH!” Parking was easy! The town was well located for our day trips. Each day we ate breakfast on the terrace and at nite we had wine on the terrace. Sunsets were beautiful. We could send a lifetime here. Thank you Marion for making this trip so easy and exciting. We have all enjoyed it!

Great house in a beautiful village

We loved everything about this house. Everything was as described and it's right in the heart of Roussillon. Nicely furnished and maintained. We could not have been happier.
