"We are 8 Australian ladies who had the pleasure of meeting Sara & Leigh (and of course gorgeous Max) while visiting the Pezenas area.

Activities Languedoc, which Sara and Leigh manage besides running their lovely villas, gave us the most amazing tours and took the hassle out of trying to organize ourselves.

In the few days we were in Pezenas they arranged a private boat with a beautiful meal down the Canal du Midi, a wine tasting and tapas evening at a nearby chateau under beautiful oak trees, a visit to another chateau with tour of vineyard and beautiful grounds with, of course, more wine tasting (as you do in France) as well as a beautiful luncheon in a pristine location in Pezenas with a guided tour from Leigh to give us the history of Pezenas.

As if that wasn't enough Sara & Leigh invited us to their home to be entertained by 2 lovely musicians around a candle-lit pool for more wine and delicious nibblies.

We all feel as if we have met the most amazing husband and wife team that truly care about taking care of others so if you want to have the time of your life contact Sara or Leigh they will become friends for life.

I know we may not see them until we visit France again but they truly touched our hearts and we will never forget them."
