Provence Testimonials

"We had an excellent week's holiday at the end of May 2011 at the aptly named Villa Charmante. The location is superb tucked away on the hillside among the olive groves a short stroll from the village of Claviers. The views from the pool and terrace down onto the village are superb and it's very hard not to relax when you have surroundings like that. Although not really remote there are no properties very close to the villa so it feels very private and peaceful. We stayed with another couple and found the villa spacious and well appointed. We are keen cooks and found the kitchen equipped with everything we needed and the outdoor barbeque area by the pool was great. The location is good being not too far from many places of interest - if you can drag yourself away from the villa that is! The village of Claviers is quiet with only a few small shops (the essentials of bakers, grocers are there) and a couple of cafes and restaurants. Larger stores and amenities are within 20-30 mins away. We ate at the Restaurant L'Oliver twice (I think that says everything!) and it was a lovely friendly and welcoming place with excellent food. We really hope to return again because a week simply wasn't long enough to explore all the area has to offer and when we do it will almost definitively be back to Villa Charmante."
