Anna is a really really nice and helpful host. Her apartment is perfectly situated close to the river where you can swim. The city is beautiful as well.

Our stay at Anna's place was perfect. It was everything and more than the pictures suggested. It was clean, perfectly situated, and wonderfully decorated. We enjoyed our time in the apartment as much as the beautiful river Orb, which is a two minute walk away. Anna is such a kind and gracious host, going above and beyond. It felt like a home away from home, and we look forward to returning.

You are really kind Emily. It was a delight to see the happiness on your faces the first evening when we were swimming in the river. I hope the rest of your holiday went well. Anna

The studio is in a great location, beautiful view and it was incredibly clean. Communication was excellent. The studio is really lovely and had everything we needed. Warning for people over 6ft 4" - the ceilings are low!! But that is one of the things that makes it unusual and quirky. We had a great time and would return.

Roquebrun is such an incredible place to visit and this apartment is a gem not to miss. Beautiful views of the amazing river. We had the most relaxing time here and would suggest not to miss out on this great Air BnB! We spent nights eating local pizza and local wine sitting by the window. Our days swimming in the river. It was perfect. Hidden treasure! Definitely a highlight of our road trip through France. A must do!

Arianna's studio is amazing, and bit more than a studio! I am impressed by how well equipped the little place is - everything you need to get fancy in the kitchen. The view and location are so special, just steps away from the river (which is clear in view from both windows of the studio) and the rolling mountains with vineyards. Arianna was excellent-ly communicative and helpful. We had a dream vacation and hope to go back some day!

The riverside studio is a lovely apartment in a gorgeous location. There is plenty to do in and around Roquebrun, and it is a great little town in which to base yourself. The kitchen was well equipped and we loved sitting by the open windows and watching the sun set. Arianna was a very considerate host who communicated brilliantly throughout.
