Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison de la Botte in Olonzac. With 3 generations holidaying together there was something for everyone. Very comfortable house with indoor pool and games rooms. Plenty of interesting places to visit in the area and some useful recommendations available in the house. Claire (the Housekeeper) is an added bonus! Welcoming, informative and discrete too. Highly recommended property.
Our dreams of a wonderful French holiday came true when we were lucky to find Maison de la Botte in Olonzac! This beautiful home exceeded our expectations and as an Australian family on an adventurous holiday to the South of France, we felt completely at home as soon as we walked in the front door. Beautiful Claire greeted us on arrival and was so helpful and caring throughout our stay. It was lovely to meet Leo too and get some great advice on what to do in the area. The house is immaculately presented and has delightful french interiors and furnishings. It has everything you could ever want for in a holiday home. We loved every aspect of the house, from the large open family dining & kitchen (where my husband loved testing out his french recipes.... it had every pot, pan & utensil he could ever need), to the "parents retreat" reading room, the gorgeous four poster bed, King bedroom, other bedrooms and bathrooms, stunning garden, (even in late autumn) and huge kids rumpus room ( which gave us many moments of peace as the children "loved" it and spent many hours in there!) We loved the sound of the church bells chiming, walking to the boulangerie every morning for fresh baguettes, opening up the beautiful old shutters in the morning, walking down the local streets and to the wednesday market to buy fresh goodies and cheese. We did lots of adventuring and day trips from our home base but also loved just spending relaxing time at home. We were so lucky to stay for a month and experience the french way of life with our family. It was truly a spectacular holiday and home.....
Memories we will cherish forever and we hope to return again one day.

Me and my family have been to stay for a few years in a row now - it is an absolutely beautiful house in a really lovely town. The garden, aside from being georgeous, is really well laid out - you can swim, sit in the shade, sit on the veranda, play in the games room. My family likes to hang out together, but separately - so we all go and find a corner somewhere in the day and read a book or swim, and then all gather round the table and have a barbeque in the evening. Sometimes we head down to the bar/cafe, or sometimes walk to the restaurants further down the canal. It is so peaceful and isolated in the garden and house, but with lots of things to do close by. Every year we say we will do something adventurous and rent bikes or go down the canal on a boat, but have never got round to it because it is so nice just to be in the garden. I absolutely love this house, and highly recommend staying there!

We had a wonderful week at Maison de la Botte. It is situated in a beautiful part of France with 300 days of sun a year. It was very easy to make friends with the locals who are very friendly. The house itself is stunning and maintained to an excellent standard. Claire looks after the administration of the property and lives two doors down. She is on hand for any requirements and I feel we have made a proper friend in her. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property for a wonderful and fun vacaction with friends and family!
