Being fully furnished and equipped with everything that you need to make your stay a comfortable one, there is no better place to relax and unwind. Please note, that the use of a car would be greatly beneficial to you during your stay, and give you an added measure of independence.

Whilst the village itself does have some interesting old architecture, you may wish to travel out a little further to see what else is on offer.

The Luberon Park in general is also worthy of exploration, where rock formations and waterfalls await your discovery. Further away, but worth the trip is the coastal city of Marseilles.

Superb

5 of 5
Amazing property, lovely location, Cathy and George were wonderful. Pool is large and lovely. House well equipped and excellent location for traveling around Provence. If you like bird houses George makes them and we bought one, so nice to have a genuine memento from the visit. There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children ) and house was perfect for this. Cathy came round with fresh vegetables and eggs. All essentials including tea, coffee, salt, pepper, etc etc included so nice not to have to buy these. Would be more than happy to stay here again and heartily recommend. Pictures do not do the place justice, it is simply beautiful.

Excellent in every way

We loved staying at Les Lavandes. The apartment is on the ground floor of a renovated old house and is superbly equipped with modern furniture. There is a small fenced private garden, but shared access to a much bigger area which includes a delightful private pool (shared with the guests staying at the other gite in the house).The views are extensive over vineyards and olive trees. The boulangerie, alimentation and boucherie are in the village only a five minute walk (uphill). There's easy access to Manosque, the Verdon Gorge, the Luberon and picturesque villages. The owners are very helpful and generous - with some nice gifts on arrival - but do not bother guests at all. I fully recommend Les Lavandes for a relaxing holiday.
