AIX101 - Guest commentsJust to say thank you for a lovely week we had at Ferme Valmousse. The moment both families arrived we all said ‘How perfect’. Just what was wanted. We had a great week, the Mistral blew for a couple of days but luckily not too long and the temperature definitely dropped after day two but lovely blue skies and sun prevailed so a happy time was had. CarolineI am just writing to say what a wonderful time we had. We absolutely loved your house. In fact, we all agreed it is the nicest house that we have stayed in, in the 8 years we have been going on holiday together. IsobelWe have just returned from our extended break in Provence and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Ferme Valmousse. The house exceeded all our expectations - it is simply wonderful in every regard. What an extraordinary "home" you have created and what a joy to spend a week in it. We hope to return next year. Lydia
