It is really "home from home" everything you will need and more. Set in a delightful area with an easy drive to all the pretty villages in Provence, the owner is a delight to deal with, with lots of help and information if required. A lovely sunny garden to sit in, local wine and cheese al-fresco in the evenings, super. We have no hesitation in recommending this property, delightful.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Although it has been several months since our week at Le Jas de Saint-Hilaire, we often reflect on our stay with such fond memories. We were a group of four “young at heart” retirees and this was our first visit to Provence. The house itself was a pleasant surprise, even better than the pictures on-line. We particularly enjoyed the patio, the pool, and the spacious kitchen (which turned out to be our favorite gathering room for eating, reflecting and planning the next day’s events.) The bedrooms and baths were all recently up-dated and comfortable. Although we had little time to relax by the pool, the few hours we spent there were so restful. The location was perfect. We rode the TGV train from Paris to Avignon, rented a car in Avignon where we toured the Palace of the Popes, then drove to Menerbes. Le Jas de Saint-Hillaire is a gated private home, somewhat secluded but central to all of the towns and villages we wanted to visit: the wonderful markets in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Lourmarin, the Van Gogh walk in Arles, the aqueduct in Pont du Gard, a day of biking with Sunny Bikes in Bonnieux, the calanques on the Mediterranean in Cassis, the ochre cliffs in Roussillon, and the hilltop village of Gordes. Our location was also convenient to the near-by Super U for grocery shopping and the boulangerie/charcuterie in Menerbes, as well as excellent restaurants in Menerbes. All in all, this was the perfect house in the perfect location for a perfect week in Provence and The Luberon. Also of note, Patricia, our “landlord”, was very responsive to our every request and a pleasure to work with.
