Period villa rental in Southern France – La Colombine is a traditional stone cottage full of character and charm, dating back to Napoleonic times. Thick stone walls, exposed wooden beams, open fireplaces and antique furniture feature in this villa, creating a unique charm of bygone days, combined with all the modern comforts.
