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.

  • 5 of 5

"My wife and I had a very good time spending our honeymoon at La Pistounette. We were very much impressed by the beauty of the place. The cottage was carefully decorated and the garden was astonishing. Being there in the begining of June when all the flowers blossomed was just amazing. We were warmly welcomed by Cathy and Georges who were kind and helpful. The owners live in the area but our privacy was never disturbed. We would recommend this peaceful place to anyone who wants to see Provence in its true colours. We will definitely return."



Chères Cathy et Georges, merci beaucoup!

La prochaine fois nous venons goûter les éscargots.

  • 5 of 5

"We had a fabulous fortnight at La Pistounette. Cathy and Georges were very welcoming and helpful, and the house was beautiful - decorated in true Provencal style and like a home from home, containing all the facilities we needed (and more). The location was also great - close to some wonderful nearby villages and the picturesque Grand Luberon, as well as a reasonable drive away from the interesting cities of Provence, such as Avignon and Aix-en-Provence. The gardens were amazing - the pool area was a fantastic place to relax, with gorgeous flowers and a pretty shaded pergola to escape the heat of the sun when needed. Everything about the owners, the house, the garden and the surroundings was perfect. We would highly recommend La Pistounette and would love to return soon for another sun-soaked holiday in this little paradise in Provence. Thank you for a wonderful holiday Cathy and Georges!"

  • 5 of 5

"Super! We had an excellent week in this nice house situated in the peaceful surroundings. Flowers, cicadas, fragrances of herbs and lavender, falling stars - it was unforgettable! We relaxed in a pagoda by a swimming pool and enjoyed lunch on a terrace by the house. The owners are very friendly and helpful (Cathy speaks very good English which was handy for us), while your privacy is guaranteed. Authentic Provencial villages, natural park de Luberon, friendly people - you will get a feeling for the real Provence. We highly recommend this location!"

Excellent séjour en Provence !

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons sans hésiter cette maison très bien située et très confortable. Le jardin arboré est très agréable et les centres d'intérêts sont nombreux dans un rayon assez court, entre Lubéron et gorges du Verdon. Les propriétaires, mitoyens, sont très sympathiques et ont arrangé leur domaine de telle sorte que l'intimité des locataires est très bien préservée.

Ein magischer Ort

  • 5 of 5

Ich habe mit dieser Bewertung ein paar Tage gewartet um mich nicht von den unmittelbaren Eindrücken beeinflussen zu lassen.

Jetzt kann ich mit Fug und Recht behaupten, la Pistounette ist ein magischer Ort. Die Eigentümer sind unglaubliche Menschen. Sie waren die Privatsphäre total und man merkt gar nicht das sie quasi im selben Haus wohnen. Man ist ganz allein für sich. Die Terrasse ist nicht einsehbar und auch der Pool ist sehr gut gelegen. So viel Liebe auf einem Grundstück für Menschen zugänglich zu machen, das ist unglaublich. Georges und Cathy sind wunderbar. Egal was sie machen, sie machen es für ihre kleine "Konservendose" (la Pistounette). Das sieht man in der Einrichtung, Deko, Garten, Pool und Umgebung sowie an vielen kleinen Details wie zum Bsp. der von Georges gebauten Vogelhäuser die auf dem gesamten Grundstück ihren Einsatz finden. Ich kann es gar nicht weiter beschreiben....sowohl wir (4 Erwachsene zwischen 33 und 49 Jahren) wie auch die Kinder ( 7 und 9 Jahre ) wollten nach drei Wochen einfach nicht mehr nach Hause. Ich werde Georges und Cathy bald wieder besuchen....wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen....ein Urlaub den wir nie vergessen werden. Danke
