Sylvie and Patrick were the best hosts - helpful and extremely hospitable. We had a week but really should have had 2 weeks as so peaceful, yet so much to see without travelling too far. Viens is a cool little village. You can take all your Luberon/Provence experiences from the one spot. Apartment was very clean and well appointed. Pool was a great place to refresh. 10/10

Simply fabulous

A wonderful little detached gite with amazing views over the verdant valley below. Easy access to Viens and other Luberon villages with a car.
