A fabulous place for
all of us and "the best pool ever" .... we all hope to return, which
would be a first, as our rule has always been "never go back"!

We all had an
absolutely fantastic time. The kids loved building dams in the river,
swiming in the pool and just racing around the garden. The place was
brilliant and very comfortalbe

you so much for the use of your lovely house and garden in a perfect part

catered for. Certainly the best swimming pool we have ever
and Cs, UK and Norway, July 2005
quiet and tranquil .... everything you would want or need from a holiday
destination with something for everyone. The children loved
exploring for crickets and other amazing insects never seen before, and
the thought of possibly seeing a wild boar drove their imagination
wild! Planning our next summer holiday here already.
G&J R Northern Ireland, July
you for making us feel welcomed. We are disappointed we never saw a
wild boar (well,
neither have we!) but
all in all we had a great time exploring the Riviera. How beautiful.
CR etc, Bridgeton, NJ, USA, July

perfect holiday has been provided - including fantastic weather .... we

.If Charles says he'll be away for a few days, don't believe him: he
goes down in a submarine in the river to put fish on your hooks - such
is the care he takes to ensure you have the smoothest stay.
N&A C, London June 2005
house, great location - main problem: one week is NOT long enough! SK
We had an
absolutely fantastic time - great place to unwind and recharge the
batteries - loved the opportunity to fish

The last 12 days
been at triumph - Picolette was delightful - house, grounds, stream ,trees
all beautiful - lasting memories
I&P M, March 2005
outside in the sun, roaring log fires in the evening ... what more could
we ask? D&V H, London,
had a fab time. The weather was just perfect for our whole stay - hot by
day and cool in the evening. The house was extremely well equipped
and wanted for nothing. The rooms themselves were lovely and we thought
your website didn't really do them justice. We really appreciated
Charlie's local knowledge - all his recommendations were spot-on. The
location of the house in the middle of the Var was ideal for getting
around all over the South. TM, September 2004
I love this
place ..... JB, September 2004
We had a
great time at Picolette, it is truly a lovely special spot ..... I will be
recommending it to all my friends.
MM, August 2004
you for such a great holiday, I think I have bored everyone rigid at home
by going on about how wonderful it was. CG,
faultless! We had an absolutely brilliant stay .... Picolette is so well
appointed: 4 fridges, two dishwashers, Sky TV and DVDs and more cutlery and
glasses than we have ever seen! SB,
was great, we had a fab time and highly recommend: The villa was
just what the description said. I would go again. MP, July 2004
We had a fantastic
week chez Picolette: it is an idyllic spot ..... a
holiday location. BG, July 2004
Wonderful week in
your gorgeous property: thank
you! RS, July 2004
Thank you for all
