Françoise was a brilliant host (the breakfasts were delicious) and a really helpful guide to the local area, with tips for places to see and even the best places to park - but more than that, she was like a French grandmother for our children. She baked a cake with them and was always ready for a game of Uno - making us all feel really welcome, it felt like we were staying with family. Our kids fell in love with her dog Ishtar and cat Bob, and enjoyed the swing, the hammock and the pool with its inflatables. The house is lovely, full of character (Françoise has an amazing eye) and there were toys and books to keep the children occupied. In terms of location, it's a five-minute car ride from St Remy, which is beautiful and full of places to eat as a family, and a ten-minute car ride from the amazing quarry at Les Baux. All in all, we had a wonderful time.
