8 of us stayed at 8 in this huge house. It is tastefully renovated and very spacious for a large group. The pool and jacuzzi are a big plus! Karine is very available and responsive. An excellent value for money. The village is also very cute and especially close to Pezenas which is really pretty. In short I highly recommend spending time with Karine.
