On arrival we were met and shown the studio which was as described ; clean, fully equipped, beautifully decorated and furnished with a minute attention to detail. Close to Sainte Tulle and Manosque it is positioned in an ideal spot to explore the Luberon and Les Alpes de Haute Provence. Quiet, calm, picturesque, the property was exactly what we wanted. The owners were anxious to do everything possible to respond to our needs in a friendly, though discreet manner. There is every likelihood that we will maintain contact with them and return at some time in the future.

It is very charming, comfortable, roomy and well equipped. The pool was perfect summer fun for our kids and it also has beautiful shade under the trees for quiet time or naps. The patio is perfect for true provence breakfasts and dinners. We went to the nearby bakery every morning to get fresh baguette, croissants and other delicious treats. There are oh so many charming nearby villages around this location to explore. Aups is super close and the market there is not to be missed! We went to the Lac de Sainte Croix and Moustier Sainte Marie, passing lavender fields on our way. Our favourite village was Tourtour. It's up in the mountains so the views are spectacular. We would go back in a heartbeat. Looking forward to the next opportunity to stay here again.

Extensive gardens with pool and garden furniture. Lots of parking. Villa itself is very well equipped with large TV, comfy sofas and a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of beautiful villages within easy driving distance - Moustiers Ste Marie, Cotignac, Tourtour to name a few. Very good market in Cotignac on a Tuesday. Easy access to lake and its amenities. Very good and easy contact with owner. Would recommend for anyone who wishes to stay in this beautiful part of Provence.
