Commonly asked questions about the Villa


Is there a washing machine Yes, we even provide laundry soap for you.

What about coffee in the morning We will have the coffee going when you get up for the day,  as well as tea.  We also provide breakfast which consists of fresh croissants, baguette from the bakery daily, jam & butter, yogurt, cereal, milk and juice.  Eggs are always in the frig. as well if you’d like to cook an egg.


Are there restaurants in town?   In Provence, there are restaurants in the nearby villages of Lacoste and Bonnieux.  If a meal is not provided, we drive the group to one of these villages to enjoy the local cuisine.  In Mallorca, we are in a village and there are several restaurants to visit.  I New Mexico we are on a ranch near the town of Abiquiu, so will provide a ride to nearby restaurants when meals are not included.

Are there stairs in the house?  Yes there are stairs in the house and some of the bedrooms are located on the second floor.   There are also cobblestone streets and uneven terrain in the fields so steady footing is important.


Is there Wifi?  Yes the wifi works throughout most of the house.  There are 2 bedrooms on the new wing however that may not get wifi.  We hope to get a device to extend wifi throughout the house this year.  (Things don't always happen in France quite as quickly as they do here).


Is there a T.V.?  Yes we have a television in the living room for your use.


Is the pool heated?  No the pool is not heated.  Depending on your tastes, we have had guests swim on both tours, but it tends to be warmer during the second tour.


Are sheets and towels provided?  Yes all linens (including pool towels) are provided.


Is the water safe to drink?  It is safe to drink the tap water.  It’s nice to take a water bottle with you for the day however, as water fountains for drinking are not too common.


What if I don’t want to go somewhere every day?  That is perfectly fine.  All excursions are optional.  If you’d prefer to lounge by the pool or enjoy a novel, painting or just hanging out “at home”  you are perfectly free to do that.
