Our guests will be able to enjoy our pool (9m x 4m) in our lovely little garden, which is quiet and private, with a nice water fountain, full of different flowers including lavender, a couple of fig and olive trees, and this is also where we serve breakfast between 08.30-09.30.
Our little garden is also for our guests to enjoy, and our guests are welcome to use our summer-kitchen, which is equipped with a fridge/freezer, sink, kettle, T-towels, place mats, plates, cups, glasses, cutlery and lots more incl coffee and a variation of teas. Our guests might find some rosé in the fridge!
There's also an enclosed shower and a separate toilet outside.
Our hall is for our guests to relax in. Our old family piano has found its way into the big fireplace and loves to be played, but our motto is “If you can play the piano, please do, if you can’t, please don’t” ☺ - you will also find quite a few books here as well as on the mezzanine and in the hall on the 1st floor too.
We have Wi-Fi, but we are in Provence, and everything is a little laid back, as is our Wi-Fi, and we have very thick walls in our old house.
We do not accept pets (we have a young very friendly Golden Retriever).
Our house has a no-smoking policy.
Minimum stay is 2 nights.
Payment options: Cash, cheques in Euros and bank transfer. We do not accept credit cards.

NB! Check-in time is between 16.00-19.00 - unless a different arrival time has been agreed in advance, but we would still like to know an ETA.

Our old house is only a 4-5min walk from the park of Château de la Florans, which each July and August is host to the famous music festival (in its 37th year in 2017) www.festival-piano.com . Also in July, a couple weekends before the famous music festival starts, the La Roque Festival takes place in the village www.countryroque.asso.fr it’s all about country western music, cowboy boots and hats, line dancing, Harley Davidsons, some big old American cars and a lot of tex-mex!
