The house has a well-equipped kitchen, a terrace overlooking a salt water pool and spectacular views from just about any room.No a/c. You`ll need your own transportation, but Amanda is a great source for day trips all around Provence. She does cooking classes. Also contacted the home chef to cook us 7 hour lamb and a well-know group of Gypsy musicians to give us a concert. St. Maximin is surrounded by wineries and olive groves. The nearby town of Uzes has a Carrefour for all manner of groceries as well as a market featuring local produce including fabulous cheeses.

We have such a lovely time in Amanda`s pocket of paradise. The tranquility and gorgeous views it offers, revitalised us. Amanda is a great host with a lot of local knowledge. The pool is shared between the 2 houses, which added to our holiday as the children all became firm friends! Thank you Amanda. xxx

What could be better than staying in an 18th Century Maison, situated in a little village in Provence? We enjoyed warm and wonderful hospitality, picturesque surroundings, interesting excursions and wonderful cuisine both at home and out and about. This is the second time we have visited Amanda`s house and we were not disappointed. This time we returned with friends and the 13 days were so much fun. Amanda is such an amazing host!!! Highly recommended!
