Pierre J*****, France, Mai 2015, Trip advisor
Super Séjour passé aux cyprès de l'etang entre amis.
La maison est magnifique et le coin est idéal pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis.
Mention spéciale à l'acceuil du gardien Bernard.
Un séjour inoubliable!
***** Parfait séjour
Pierre S*****, France, Juillet 2014
Demeure provençale de charme idéale pour 3 couples avec 6 enfants. Chambres et Sdb très confortables, belle décoration de la maison et cuisine très bien équipée. Un grand merci à nos hôtes, Bernard et Maryvonne, qui ont été parfaits d'efficacité, de gentillesse et de discrétion.
***** A Truly Wonderful House !
Candy, England, August 2013, Homeaway.com
My whole family of 14 (8 adults & 6 children) stayed during August 2013. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard with all that you would need to enjoy your stay. The children had a great time playing in the pool while adults took quick dips or relaxed on the comfortable loungers. There is a large covered area next to the pool to relax under out of the hot sun. The large outdoor dining area, shaded by a plant-covered arbour, was put to good use with all of us enjoying meals cooked up with ingredients purchased at local markets - Salernes and Lourges being particularly good. Bernard the housekeeper who lives on the middle floor of the house, was very welcoming and helpful but was also very discrete - quietly doing any outside jobs/gardening very early in the morning before we were up!
The 'Cascade' is well worth a visit (the children all dipped into the freezing cold but beautifully blue lagoons at the bottom). The Lac du Verdon is also a great place to spend a day - either taking a kayak or pedalo down the spectacular gorge or spending time on the beach where there are all kinds of watersports for hire. We also visited Tourtour, very pretty with lots of galleries etc, and Cotignac, famous for its interesting 'grottes' - both well worth a visit. We have taken our holiday in Provence for the last three years but this is the most superior house we have stayed in. The surrounding countryside is also very beautiful in the 'Sillans' area being both very hilly and wooded.
Thank you for such a lovely holiday!
**** Une très bonne visite

Our family (three generations, ages 5 to 76) spent a lovely week at Cypres de l'Étang. The house is full of charm, the bedrooms lovely, the five bathrooms convenient for such a large group, and the vaulted main room great for dining and lounging. The kitchen and its equipment are all one might want. The children greatly enjoyed the pool and yard; they were delighted to catch a frog. And we profited by the many interesting sites and villages nearby. We heartily recommend it (one small problem, which can be easily resolved: there is not enough light in the main room, making it difficult to read inside at night).

Un cadre magique, un lieu magnifique, nous avons passé un séjour de rêve.
***** Look no further
Lisa, USA, Août 2012
If you are looking for a sunny getaway in the south of France while avoiding the coastal traffic, then look no further! This home was everything we wanted and more. We used the very well equipped and organized kitchen for every meal, and spent most of our time in the beautiful heated pool or in nearby charming villages. The rooms are all gorgeous..decor and comfort, and each with its own bathroom. We are from NY, but stayed with family and friends coming from other parts of France, and everyone agreed that the house was perfect. I am quite the air-conditioning snob (so I hear from my husband) yet even I didn't mind opening my window at night and letting the cooler mountain breeze in. Enjoy your stay!
***** La meilleure vacance !!!! Absolument !!!

***** Wonderful stay at the Bastide
Karsten, Danemark, Septembre 2009, Homeaway.com
Thanks to Jean-Bernard Martin for a wonderful stay at the Bastide. We held
out wedding in France and all of our quests were very glad for the stay.
Beautiful rooms, fantastic diningroom, lovely garden and at very nice
swimmingpool. Very quiet surroundings. Everything was ok and we had nothing
at all to complain about. We can recommend this place warmly.
***** Pink street group
Olivier, USA, Juin 2008, Homeaway.com
Perfect accomodation for our group of several families with young kids. Close to various attractions which makes it easy for morning or afternoon short visits of markets, river, villages and other local activities. We loved the relaxing countryside atmosphere sitting around the pool, under the covered patio, or inside the refreshing living space. At the same time, the high level of comfort of the rooms allowed us to get away from the kids playing outdoors. Besides the pool and ping-pong table, they loved the snails, frogs, and playing hide and seek in this lovely landscaped property. Getting away to my spacious, super clean, and delicately decorated room during the hot part of the day was my favorite. When we did not feel like cooking what we bought at the local markets in the professionally equipped kitchen, we escaped to local small restaurants only minutes away driving. I am sitting at my desk right now wishing I could be back! Thanks again for the great service (thanks for replacing right away the coffee maker we broke!) and for opening your home to us who can't live in a place like that year round. I'll recommend all my friends to stay at your place.
