We had a fantastic time at Le Diamant Noir. The accommodation was perfect for us with two adequately sized and well appointed bedrooms, a nice bathroom and a good sized and well-equipped kitchen/living area. The gite had everything we needed - including towels and linen - and there were some nice touches which made our stay more comfortable. Whilst there was no air conditioning, we managed perfectly well without it as the windows opened and there were mosquito screens. There was a private garden area for outside eating and relaxing and a decent sized pool shared with the other two 2-person gites and the owners. Our family often had sole use of the pool.
The owners were superb hosts. They were very friendly and were available if we needed any help, but did not intrude in any way.
We loved the area. Aups is a pleasant small town, and is within 15 minutes walk. It has several decent restaurants. There is a Supermarket opposite the entrance to the gites, and we found it extremely useful to have this facility so close to us. It didn't disturb us. There are several other pleasant towns nearby as well as a number of tourist attractions such as museums, galleries and vineyards. The Verdon Gorges are within an hour's drive and there is some other superb scenery and natural features within reach.
It was certainly the best accommodation we have had in France, and one of our favourite holidays.
We had a fantastic stay at Le Diamont Noir in Aups in July 2015. The property was lovely, well furnished with great facilities which made it easy to look after our 20 month old daughter. The pool was a good size with sun loungers and parasols. The property was clean and we were provided with fresh linen after a week. A big plus for us was the fact that beach towels were provided and there was a machining machine available. Sandra and Colin were helpful and friendly and gave us plenty of space but made it clear they were available if needed. Location was an easy walk into the quaint town of Aups which had a great choice of restaurants, bars and shops. The supermarket across the road was very handy and also carried some nice local wines.
Thanks for a lovely holiday!
We enjoyed our stay very much, the apartment was clean, very well equipped and settled in a beautiful garden. We loved the pool. The location was perfect, it was close to the city centre, grocery store, the nice surrounding villages and the La Croix gorge and lake. We felt well taken care of by the lovely landlady and landlord, Sandra and Colin, and recommend the Diamant Noir strongly for a great vacation!
La Truffiere apartment at Le Diamont Noir is brand new and beautifully appointed, with lovely individual touches. It's just big enough for two, with a lovely private terrace. Colin and Sandra are wonderful hosts and the position is perfect; ten minute walk into the lovely village of Aups with its market, restaurants and shops, or 100 yards across the road to the supermarket for fresh bread for breakfast. We have to return, as we are two matches all in table tennis and three matches all in boule! It will not be a hardship; we simply adored it.
We spent a lovely week staying at Le Diamant Noir. The gite couldn't have been better equipped and the whole environment of the pool and garden was beautiful and relaxing. It was the perfect base to explore the surrounding area.
Sandra and Colin couldn't have been more welcoming and had lots of great advice on where to visit and eat!
We hope to come back...
Un gîte absolument superbe, conforme en tous points au descriptif proposé ! Mieux même, j'allais oublier la bouteille de vin qui n'est pas sur les photos et que les propriétaires avaient posé sur la table pour notre arrivée ! Colin & Sandra sont très sympathiques et accueillants, à la fois désireux de répondre aux sollicitations ou besoins tout en restant très discrets. A 10 minutes à pied du centre du village, vous vous épargnerez le bouchon le jour de marché ! Et le gîte est également à une distance très raisonnable en voiture des fabuleuses gorges du Verdon (environ 25 kms). Et quand vous vous serez bien promenés sous la chaleur, vous apprécierez le calme de la piscine et la quiétude et l'ombre du parc ! Si vous hésitez...et bien n'hésitez plus ! Et vive l'Entente Cordiale Franco Britannique !!!
