Amazing house in a fantastic area!

5 of 5
This was our first visit to Provence and we have to say we loved it! The house is perfectly located in the centre of the Luberon and we had trouble tearing ourselves away from the Pool each day to visit all the beautiful villages nearby. We travelled as a family with two small children and found the house absolutely perfect for our needs. The owners provided High Chairs and Cots and the Security Cover on the Pool meant we could sunbathe and read our books without having to watch the little ones every move. The house is located at the end of a very quiet private lane with no neighbours making it extremely quiet and private. Although we ate out regularly we found the kitchen and BBQ to be well equipped for the dinners and lunches we prepared ourselves. All the bedrooms are of a good size and the large Master Suite was a very pleasant surprise. We have already booked to stay again next year!

Stunning views in peaceful village

5 of 5
We enjoyed a fabulous holiday in Bel Olivier. Pascale was extremely helpful and made booking very easy. She responded quickly and was happy to answer any query. The villa was well equipped (maybe short on pillows - I am very fussy and like a lot!) and the pool and gardens lovely with fabulous views over neighbouring villages and vineyards - exactly as show in photos. Joucas is a small attractive village with a small shop and two restaurants. It was great to be able to walk to get bread in the morning and for a meal in the evening. There is also a children's playground and tennis courts in the village. Also fabulous far reaching views from the top of the village and many walks. Highly recommended. I am missing my morning walk and views from the top of the village!
