Great time

We had such a great time there and enjoy it very much. The feeling was a mix between visit very good and very nice friends and a living in a Luxury Hotel. Aoua and her husband are so nice, sweet and polite and their House and garden absolutely fantastic.

A welcome guest in their home

Aoua and her family were very kind. I felt as if I was a welcome guest in their home. The house is beautiful, a real gem. If you have a change (while they are still renting) grab it! The architecture is grand, the colors well chosen. Eating breakfast outside on the patio was great. Aoua and Cyril went out of their way to speak with me in my broken french (at my request) and mix it up with english for both our benefit. The bed was very comfortable and the neighborhood, while being only a 5 minute walk to town, was very quiet -- the best sleep I had on the trip. I would not hesitate to go back if I get the chance. Thank you so much!

Villa is magnificent

Aoua and her husband were extremely friendly and responded to any questions quickly and efficiently. As only one of my family members drove to the villa, they kindly drove us car-less visitors to and from the airport on request (and, of course, for a reasonable fee). The villa is really magnificent, and much appreciated by us all, including the lovely pool. A great deal of care and attention to detail is evident both internally and externally. The garden is a delight! Thank you from us all, Aoua and Cyril! xxx
