Stayed Tuesday 06 August 2013 with Friends
We were a group of four climbers, all friends no couples. This beautiful house was perfect for us - central to all the climbing we were looking for - Orpierre, Sisteron and Ceuse, we even went a little further afield for some of the days. It has a fabulous sun trap of a terrace out the front and we spent most of our evenings out there enjoying the late sun. The local shops are easy to find, and we ate very cheaply out of the supermarket which was on our way to the climbing every day, with good cooking facilities in the house. A lovely house, we hope to stay again!

A relaxing holiday. The house is as described. Owners had been present recently and kindly left some basic supplies for us. We took bicycles hoping to cycle to the local bar and boulongerie but were not very fit hills defeated us. We would consider returning in future.

Property is excellent, clean and well equipped. Small village off the beaten track but minutes from the nearest motorway. Great for flyers, you can see the take off with binoculars. Quiet and relaxing.

The house is fantastic and we had a great time there.

This was a charming old farmhouse situated in a beautiful part of provincial France.The location gave us ample opportunity to explore parts of France away from the usual tourist tracks.

What a great spot for outdoor folk. The Farmhouse is very like a good (Climber's Club+) club hut in the UK - only you've got it all! The kitchen is well equiped for a whole host of cooking so you can really save money by not needing to eat out (as with some accommadation I've had - especially Spain!). All the usual mod cons etc. we had 4 adults and 2 two year olds and there was bags of space. We're booking again, hopefully for one of many visits. Excellent base for the outdoor family.
