Great location for the major attractions in Luberon (Gordes etcs) and a perfect bolthole for relaxing, cooking, and soaking up the sun. Ultra-modern interior, well-appointed kitchen, great beedrooms, and a very warm welcome from Cyril and Julie. Could have spent the whole summer here.

Offers of help if we needed it but not intrusive. Spacious and well appointed. Even has a washing machine and easy to use electric hob. Private pretty garden with plenty of shade and variety of seating. We ate outside for breakfast and dinner listening to the crickets. Lots of pretty hilltop villages to visit and very useful to be so close to Apt for shopping. Although the lavender was nearly over we found it in Sault and had a wonderful day driving around Mount Ventoux. Cheap local wine and very friendly cat called Garfield! Thank you for a wonderful week. We hope to return at a cooler time to explore further as we had a 40°C heatwave!
