Complete, well furnished kitchen and dining areas. Multiple sitting/dining areas inside and outside. Very modern interior ambiance with nice art. Bose stereo system. Large flat screen tv. Excellent WiFi. BBQ. Bicycles. A heated swimming pool big enough to do serious exercises. Big beds and beautiful linen. Lovely showers. Washer and dryer. Fantastic lighting throughout. Located among olive groves but 5 minutes drive or 20 minute walk from the heart of Aups. Another 20 minute drive to the scenic Gorge du Verdon. And but an hour and a half to either Nice, St-Tropez, Casis or Aix. The owners live next door, obviously love the area, and were most helpful with anything be it restaurants, markets, brocantes, vide-greniers, festivals, sightseeing or questions about the house. In short, this was "home" for three weeks and we could have easily stayed for 3 months in this very comfortable home in this most beautiful area of the World. Our last week in September and the first two weeks of October were perfect weatherwise with continuous sun most every day. Highs into the mid-20s C. No rain. And only one day with wind. Dank je, dank je to A&A for a wonderful stay!

We were fortunate to have our visit overlap with owners Michael and brother Chris who went above and beyond in every way imaginable, both before and after our arrival, to make our visit to Aups amazing. My cousin and I were on a sentimental journey to retrieve treasured memories of times we had spent in Aups and Moissac in our childhoods. Our American grandmother had owned farm property just outside of Aups since before WWII and she later invited each of her grandchildren to experience life in Provence during time spent living with her at Le Serre. Michael performed magic! He located several of our best friends and classmates from 60 years ago! He and Chris hosted a reunion party for us all on La Cascade's large front terrasse! Biggest SURPRISE and JOY imaginable ! I can truly say that every one of our days spent at La Cascade was delightful, from coffee on the small private terrace in the morning by the sweet waterfall, to relaxing with wine and BarBQ on the large "terrasse" in the evening, sunsets lighting the expansive view of the town and countryside below and beyond. Guests at La Cascade will find a fully- equipped kitchen, fit for gourmet chefs ---or casual meals. Hosts thoughtfully provided essentials for a dinner and breakfast upon arrival. The Provencal decor is both cheerful and comfortable. (Kitchen far more attractive than shown in some older photos!) Owners have provided a wealth of information about the surrounding areas and La Cascade's location is perfect both for walks into town and as a center point for exploring all of Provence. We loved the open-air markets on Saturday and Wednesday! Thank you Michael and Chris for making dreams come true!
