Ardent globetrotters Gil and Rene love to welcome guests to their typical French villa surrounded by lovingly tended gardens, the ideal base for discovering the area. Antiques, an eye-catching range of paintings and calming hues create an air of timeless comfort throughout. Bedrooms are elegant with king-size beds and neat shower rooms tucked discreetly into corners; two also have balconies overlooking the garden. Breakfast on the terrace (don’t miss Gil’s jams!) and spend days exploring the mountains and coast, or lazing with a book in the shade of the olive trees. Handy shops and restaurants are just a ten minute walk away.
