Guestbook comments from the owner
A very big thank you to Sandra & Colin for your hospitality. We enjoyed every moment of our stay at Le Diamant Noir and were very reluctant to leave! Our gite was extremely well equipped and clean. Having the supermarche across the road was very handy for fresh croissants and bread in the morning. It’s walking distance into the beautiful ancient town of Aups where there is a market twice a week, beautiful shops including a wonderful pottery, and many very good restaurants and bars. The area’s great for cycling and walking. A visit to the Gorges du Verdon is a must! We drove there twice to enjoy the breath-taking views. Two weeks really isn’t enough time to explore this beautiful area, so we will definitely be returning again! - See more at: http://www.provence-holidayrental.com/?p=14#comments
