We had a super holiday at the Villa St Lorraine. Chateauneuf de Gadagne is an excellent base for a sightseeing holiday with an amazing array of fascinating places within reasonable travelling distance. There is a railway station in the village which we also found useful on a couple of occasions. The house itself was ideally suited to our needs and the owners could not have been more helpful. It was very good for our French, which improved over the fortnight,and we enjoyed our conversations with them.

Villa St Lorraine was perfect for our family. We have 2 small children so it was great to have the use of a cot, highchair and washing machine. The pool was wonderful and the house was very easy to live in.We had a wonderful holiday. Everything was well organised and made very easy.
