Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Saumane-de-Vaucluse

LE CHINAILLON: charming 2-room apartment, 45m2, peaceful and nicely decorated in a fenced-in property between the Ventoux and the Lubéron mountains. It presents a bedroom for 2, a bathroom, separate toilets, 30m2 living room with a fully equipped kitchen, dining corner, sitting corner with sofa bed, TV with French numeric cable, DVD-player and wireless Internet access. This room opens onto a 25m2 terrace through sliding picture windows, giving access to the first outdoor lounge. When you leave this terrace, you will find a second outdoor lounge with a BBQ under a canopy of hundred-year-old oaks. In this flowery corner, you will find the ideal space to practice the typical lunchtime sport : "la pétanque" (French boules) Less than 1 km away, you will find many activities (hiking, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, swimming in the river, horse-riding, tree climbing, flying trapeze...) as well as an 18-hole golf course (Provence Country club). Enough to spend excellent holidays!

Wonderful gite in Provence

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice gite. The unit is attached to the main house. The location of the property is central for visiting many of the top sights in Provence. Even though it is in the countryside, grocery stores such as Super U, bakeries, and the town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue are just a few minutes away by driving. For the golfers, there is a course only minutes away.

Topping the list of things that we love about this unit is the clean and immaculate condition of the interior. Everything looked brand new. There is not a scratch on the wall. The decor is well thought out and radiates country charm. There is a large patio door off the living room that lets in lots of light and keeps the place bright and airy. At the end of a tiring day of sightseeing, it was so nice to come back to this peaceful oasis. The owners provided many thoughtful touches that made our stay great, e.g., generous size wardrobe, plenty of good quality hangers, extra shelving space in the bathroom next to the sink to hold toiletries, powerful hairdryer, towel dryer, clothes pins and basins to carry out your laundry to your own clothesline after washing in the washing machine, charcoal and lighting cubes for the onsite BBQ.

The unit is just the right size for a couple. There is limited counter space for full scale cooking. The fridge and freezer are of good size. There are sugar, salt, pepper and coffee in the cupboard. Other ingredients you would have to bring or purchase.

The owners do not speak English but we communicated just fine with a little help from google translate. What everyone said about them is true. They were exceptionally warm and friendly and very accommodating. They welcomed us like old friends and even provided us with yummy treats! They were also very discrete. The perfect host!

We hope to return one day soon!

Que du bonheur !

  • 5 of 5

je ne veux pas copier les autres commentaires, mais tout est parfait dans ce gite : déco top (petit nid douillet), propreté irréprochable, calme (juste petits oiseaux, écureuils et chats mignons), et, cerise sur le gâteau, l'accueil de Francine et Gilbert... On se sent d'emblée comme chez soi, sans oublier leurs gentilles attentions et le petit apéro d'accueil ! Bref, si nous retournons dans le Luberon, et nous y retournerons, ça sera au Chinaillon, sans aucune hésitation. De plus, le gite est idéalement situé pour des promenades et visites (tout à côté de Fontaine de Vaucluse, l'Isle sur la Sorgue... et tant d'autres sites). Encore merci pour votre accueil. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine, reposante et ressourçante ! amitiés des dijonnais...

Effectivement c'est la troisième année que nous posons nos valises au Chinaillon et cette fois pour deux semaines. Jamais décus, Francine et Gilbert égaux à eux mêmes, discrets mais très attentionnés et nous avons l'impression de les connaitre depuis toujours. Le gîte est d'une propreté irréprochable, la literie est très bonne, pas de mal de dos...Et en plus de belles balades en perspective, de jolis villages à découvrir. Je n'ai lu que des éloges des autres "vacanciers" mais c'est mérité. En plus le beau temps est assuré. Les bordelais Maïté et Claude

Charmant gîte , insurpassable propreté et hospitalité! Entre La Fontaine la Vaucluse et L'Isle sur la Sorgue on peut reprendre l'énergie sur les terrasses sous des chènes ou se depenser au vélo ou golf. Excellent point de départ aussi pour les amants de culture et d'histoire.Les hôtes offrent de conseil pour toutes les questions. Certainement on reviendra!
