What makes a villa holiday work?

One of the checks on Sarah’s Tick List when she inspects a property is that there is something for everyone: fabulous pool a must, tennis court a bonus, comfy bedrooms and good bathrooms no question, well equipped kitchen good for local market purchases ideal, nearby activities (sporting and cultural) very necessary, and of course a good corkscrew!

We are always looking for new properties in France. Big or small as long as they are gorgeous! Please contact Sarah if you have one.
