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.

Great location surrounded by lavender fields. Many facilities a short drive away in Sault. Ideal base to explore the area and its many attractions.
