On arrival we were met and shown the studio which was as described ; clean, fully equipped, beautifully decorated and furnished with a minute attention to detail. Close to Sainte Tulle and Manosque it is positioned in an ideal spot to explore the Luberon and Les Alpes de Haute Provence. Quiet, calm, picturesque, the property was exactly what we wanted. The owners were anxious to do everything possible to respond to our needs in a friendly, though discreet manner. There is every likelihood that we will maintain contact with them and return at some time in the future.

For 10 days our daughter, her partner and their two twins joined us and this proved to be very successful in every way. We would certainly recommend anyone who wants to get away from the madding crowd to stay in this cottage. A car is essential as the nearby villages and towns are not within walking distance and be warned the drive is over 1 kilometre long and something of a challenge for a low clearance vehicle!

This is a well kept and comfortable house on the outskirts of a village with lovely views across the valley in an interesting part of the Luberon. Air-conditioning throughout adds to a light an airy ambience and there is a pleasant garden with outside cooking facilities. The pool is very nice and clean and it would be even better if the night lights worked. The caretaker-neighbours were very friendly and helpful, and lent us their kettle. The only thing less than perfect was the woman who appeared on the last day to return our breakage deposit and seemed to think we were under-sheet thieves! A misunderstanding, I am sure, but we would rather have dealt with the helpful neighbours.
