Beautiful, comfortable B&B with a wonderful host! Aups is relatively centrally located for seeing different attractions in the Haute-Var. Joel had great advice for what to see and do. Most shops and restaurants are closed for the season by mid-November, but the weather was beautiful and the glories of mother nature stay open year-round!

Joël was a very nice host. We arrived later than planned, but it wasn't a problem at all. The room looks even better in real life than on the picture :) Breakfast was delicious! Great location, just minutes away (by car) from Verdon Gorge Canyon & Lake Sainte Croix. We loved staying there, and wouldn't hesitate to visit again!

Joël was a kind and generous host. The bed is supremely comfortable, the house is cozy and full of life! His family run the crêperie around the corner so across these two spaces one really gets a familial vibe (not to mention it's delicious). Aups is gorgeous with plenty to do and see, and the house is perfectly situated for day trips to les Gorges du Verdon or Lac St. Croix. Do not hesitate to book your holiday here. We would have loved to stay longer. Merci beaucoup Joël; nous reviendrons!

One word - amazing! I can't recommend Joël's place enough. The place was tricky to find at first because it is tucked away in the heart of the fairytale-esc old town. Joël was a very friendly and helpful host and did very well trying his English while we attempted our French. The house itself is something I've never seen. It's very mediaeval yet with Joël's very artistic touch everywhere. The room was wonderful. We had the room with the ensuite. The bed was so comfortable, the bathroom equipped with everything and the shower pressure was good. We loved breakfast too - baguette, croissant, and local jams and honey with tea and coffee. We also made friends with the cat who was flighty at first but very fun. Aups in itself is the perfect location for exploring the region and is a gorgeous town in itself. While parking may be different in peak season we had no issue finding free parking very close by.

Had a fantastic stay at the House of Happiness. Joel was incredibly nice and welcoming. Breakfast every morning, he let us set the time. The room was warm and inviting. We stayed four days, which gave us plenty of time to explore the area: Aups itself is cute and has surprisingly good restaurants and shops. Lac de Sainte-Croix and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie are must sees. Joel recommended Tourtour which was also great. We hiked to the waterfall in Sillans-la-Cascade, but that probably wasn't worth it. Our only complaint was the church bell -- it rings every half hour and is quite loud throughout all of Aups...there's not much you can do about it other than ear plugs if you're a light sleeper like my wife is. Overall, an amazing time. Thank you, Joel.
