I just wanted to say how FANTASTIC Le Mas de Vaquier was—we absolutely adored it. The house was magnificent, the set up was ideal for our extended party of parents and teens, and the pool and surrounding gardens and area were just perfect. It was just what I had been looking for, and I hope to go back one day. Apart from being the most beautiful surroundings, being up in the hills also provides some much need respite from the very hot weather. Both the caretaker and the housekeepers were fantastic – they were very much there to help us enjoy our holiday. Thank you so much for your help with our booking……………………….2023
