General Location Map
Anny and Jacques were wonderful hosts. They made us feel so at home in our apartment. They greeted us very warmly, even though it was late when we arrived. Anny supplied a few food staples, such as milk, bread, butter, even coffee and wine. This was so helpful since we were travelling with our 15-month old baby who drank extraordinary amounts of milk while we were in Europe. The apartment and chateau were more rustic than they seemed in the photographs, but it was still charming. The location was good. We were fairly close to the autoroute which made it a good base for day trips throughout Provence. We shopped for groceries in Rousset and Trets. Anny and Jacques hosted us for an apertif the night before we departed, which was lovely. Staying in an apartment like this was absolutely perfect for our small family, with two girls age four and 15 months. We were able to eat breakfast and dinner each day in the apartment and packed picnics for lunch. Thank you!
