if one child, the parents have to watch him at the pool, the owner is not responsible for the visitors around the pool

What a special and original accommodation this is! We had a perfect week thanks to the roulotte and we really had a great first holiday as a family. There's a lot of privacy and the swimming pool, garden en sandbox were great to spend time with our son (almost 2). Martine is very friendly and helpful. She wants to take time to give you advice where to go and can give you a large list of things to do/visit. La Viciente is a charming property and a good base for visiting nice villages in the surrounding (also the beach isn't far away).
Perfect place! Loved the roulette. It has everything you need incl. aircon and a very nice pool. Martine was very helpfull and friendly.
We had a wonderful time at the lovely roulette!
Martine was a great host, serving us fresh warm Croissants in the morning.
Great place to relax, just a 10 min drive to Aix en provence.
This is one of the best places we have staid in on this trip. Martine was so helpful and welcoming. She invited us to her house to show us all the sightseeing spots in the area. We highly recommend to stay at Martines caravan.
We loved our time at Martine's caravan. It's a beautiful property and a wonderful base to explore Provence. There are numerous hikes originating very close to the property, and the nearbye hilltop village of Ventabren is very picturesque. Martine is a fantastic host. Everything is thoroughly thought out and prepared professionally, and she is kind and generous (when I told her it was my wife's birthday, she reappeared a few minutes later with a bottle of local wine). Nothing but good memories from our week there, and we can't recommend it strongly enough.
The Roulotte was as charming as it looks in its photos! We loved buying fresh produce at the farmers' market in Aix and cooking delicious meals in the tiny kitchenette. Martine was very friendly and helpful in giving us recommendations of places in the area to visit, lending us maps and brochures, and even drawing us some customized maps! The location is a great launching point for visiting wineries, the beach, Aix, and Luberon. We greatly enjoyed our stay.
