What a absolutley amazing property. Like living a dream. The area of Olonzac is so quiet like time has stood still with just a couple of lovely restaurants.
To stay at the house is like being in a film. The stunning rooms and gardens and pool so warm . Clare the fantastic lady who looked after all our needs especially when we needed a doctor, is your point of contact. Nothing was too much trouble. One day I will be back .
This property is a grand old lady, gracious, beautifully restored and lovingly cared for. We stayed in the property for 2 weeks to celebrate family birthdays. The home is exactly as the photos portray and lived up to all our expectations. There are many surrounding villages with cafes serving good French food however with a Range to die for, a large well equipped farmhouse style kitchen with good preparation benches, we found ourselves cooking many of the evening meals and wining and dining under the fairy lights in the beautiful gardens. There is an excellent market in the village (5mins walk) every Saturday to purchase good fresh produce and there are plenty of potted herbs in the garden of the villa. Claire the housekeeper is very helpful and has a wicked sense of humour. Would love to return one day.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison de la Botte in Olonzac. With 3 generations holidaying together there was something for everyone. Very comfortable house with indoor pool and games rooms. Plenty of interesting places to visit in the area and some useful recommendations available in the house. Claire (the Housekeeper) is an added bonus! Welcoming, informative and discrete too. Highly recommended property.
Our dreams of a wonderful French holiday came true when we were lucky to find Maison de la Botte in Olonzac! This beautiful home exceeded our expectations and as an Australian family on an adventurous holiday to the South of France, we felt completely at home as soon as we walked in the front door. Beautiful Claire greeted us on arrival and was so helpful and caring throughout our stay. It was lovely to meet Leo too and get some great advice on what to do in the area. The house is immaculately presented and has delightful french interiors and furnishings. It has everything you could ever want for in a holiday home. We loved every aspect of the house, from the large open family dining & kitchen (where my husband loved testing out his french recipes.... it had every pot, pan & utensil he could ever need), to the "parents retreat" reading room, the gorgeous four poster bed, King bedroom, other bedrooms and bathrooms, stunning garden, (even in late autumn) and huge kids rumpus room ( which gave us many moments of peace as the children "loved" it and spent many hours in there!) We loved the sound of the church bells chiming, walking to the boulangerie every morning for fresh baguettes, opening up the beautiful old shutters in the morning, walking down the local streets and to the wednesday market to buy fresh goodies and cheese. We did lots of adventuring and day trips from our home base but also loved just spending relaxing time at home. We were so lucky to stay for a month and experience the french way of life with our family. It was truly a spectacular holiday and home.....
Memories we will cherish forever and we hope to return again one day.
Kindest Regards Kristie, Andrew, Sascha, Amber & Griffon Hoiles.
