Wonderfull stay in the Provence - Alpilles area
We loved the house and the surroundings that make for several nice days out. The villa is very close to all the facilities you want in France/Provence. Walking distance from a few Boulangers (Fresh bread) and many restaurants. The Alpille region where Fontvieille is part of has so many attractions it is difficult to choose. from. We went to a number of wine producers, there are a few within a 3 mile range from the villa. The house has this natural stone feel, thick walls, nice and cool in the occasionally hot summer period in the Provence. On the day of our arrival it was over 40 degrees Celcius. Dorothee, the concierge provide a very warm welcome for us and was very helpfull with tips and tricks during our stay. We recommend this 3rdhome address. ”
