Virginie – Ida, David + 2 daughters review
Stayed in 2018
We had a lovely stay with Virginie and her charming family near the village of Eguille in Provence.
Our daughter who is 13 and has just started learning French at school had French lessons with Virginie in the mornings whilst the rest of us (mum, dad and an eight year old) hung out by the pool or in the village.
As a young and motivated teenager, this is a great way of jump-starting your French learning.
Virginie took us all on two wonderful excursions to the market in Aix-en-Provence and to Cassis and the seaside. She was very flexible and helpful in any way and we all had fun exploring French and Provence with her. We decided against renting a car, which was a limiting factor, yet there are local taxis and the adults enjoyed the 45 minutes’ walk through the vineyards and the woods to the village.
The house is lovely with comfortable beds, a nice private bathroom and a large garden.
When you factor in flights and trains at school holiday prices, the total costs of the week for our family holiday were substantial but for us it was a great and happy experience.
