Since 2005, over 1000 people have stayed with us, many returning in later years.  It has been both a privilege and pleasure to welcome people from all over the world from Tasmania to Canada and all over Europe.

In March 2020 the Covid pandemic was declared an emergency and Lockdowns were put in place in many European countries.  This totally changed our visitor profile, which for 15 years was mostly people from the UK. In France, the borders were re-opened in June and we began to get enquiries and bookings from many European countries. We have, since then, been pleased to welcome visitors from Denmark, Holland, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Ireland, and of course France.

Below you will find some of the many entries in our visitors book which we are pleased to be to be able to share with you

A fresh expression, an English/Irish home in a very French culture. It works wonderfully. Its difficult to put into words, the whole ambience demands that you slow down, meditate and wonder. Very good for the Soul, for the body too, with beautiful weather and a refreshing swim each afternoon. 

A perfect package!.


Peter & Avril Turner-Devon Uk



We both really enjoyed our time visiting this part of France.Visiting the villages, enjoying the dramatic and peaceful  scenery, the atmosphere of the markets and the general way of life are all most appealing.

Arc en Provence has been a wonderful place to stay with great hosts,a terrific pool and two entertaining dogs (the cats weren’t interested in us).

Thank you for a wonderful week of relaxation.


Pam & Graeme Wormwell-Tasmania Austriala


Tranquil and wonderful location, faultless hospitality and excellent accommodation.

Nothing better than relaxing by the pool followed by dinner outside with Ted and Sam. Every home should have a Ted.

Thank you Peter and Shirley!.
