This effortlessly elegant farmhouse retains a classic stone exterior with updated amenities and decor on the interior. Sleep up to 8 people in this house while exploring the French countryside. Learn about the local black truffle and olive oil industry or discover wineries across the peaceful Aups landscape. Gastro/Oenophiles will find endless places of interest surrounding this charming home.

THIRDHOME member Kathy says, “Our one week stay (6 adults) was fantastic!! A serene setting, amazing views. Farmhouse overlooks a valley, surrounded by abundant olive trees and the Alps in the distance…Loved our day trips to Verdon Gorge+ Moustiers Ste Marie, St Tropez, Monaco, local vineyards and surrounding quaint villages. Outdoor market days in Aups center were delightful.” click here to read more of Kathy’s review.


Somerset United Kingdom THIRDHOME

Whitelackington Manor | Somerset, United Kingdom

Treat yourself and up to 23 other guests to a regal countryside escape with a stay at Whitelackington Manor in charming Somerset. The extravagant interior will leave you speechless. From the rustic hardwood billiards room to the grand room fireplace, you’ll feel a sense of prestige only afforded to English manors. Outside you can enjoy a heated swimming pool and views of the sprawling estate gardens. Explore surrounding breweries, mythic Glastonbury or the nearby Cheddar Gorge cheese caves.

THIRDHOME member Petra says, “If Hollywood needed a quintessential English manor house, they would choose Whitelackington Manor. The house and gardens are as picture postcard as you can possibly imagine, but with all modern amenities. This house (if you dare call it that) is perfect for a large family gathering or for a group of friends who want to play Lord of the Manor for one week…This house is NOT 5 out of 5. It is 100 out of 100. If you only stay in one THIRDHOME property in England, Whitelackington Manor is the one to choose.” click here to read more of Petra’s review.
