Rose in Lourmarin

  • 5 of 5
The apartments that Rose and Robin offer in Lourmarin are everything and more than the website describes! We stayed in the largest of the 3 apartments. It had 2 rooms...a good sized living-dining-kitchen room which was well furnished with everything we needed to cook a meal, relax and watch TV. The second room is the large bedroom with ensuite bathroom. All of the linens are first class and even some scented items were provided for the bathroom. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Rose is a fountain of knowledge for places to go and things to do, and her restaurant recommendations were excellent. The garden is a restful place to read a book or just soak up the sun. We would definitely go back and would recommend this apartment to everyone. We also stayed in Rose's son's house which has recently been reconstructed into an absolutely beautiful showplace. The house is large with a nice courtyard for outdoor living. The prices for both the apartment and the house were very fair.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay at Ancienne Maison des Gardes. An ideal location to base out of for a thorough perusing of the Luberon Valley and beyond. The Courtyard Studio was a perfect size and very comfortable for the two of us. The Studio decor was also to our liking - understated and light with unbleached linen accents. Liked being 'in town' without the noise and bustle of the middle of the village.

Rose and Robin have enough ideas, maps and guidebooks to keep you busy for weeks. Their restaurant recommendations steered us toward exceptional meals at equally exceptional prices.

Overall the Courtyard Studio is an excellent value in a perfect location with delightful and attentive hosts.

Lourmarin, Favorite Village

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay in Lourmarin, a pristine, charming, largely undiscovered village, a gracious lady of a village that whispers her charms rather than shouting them in a tourist trap manner. The apartments offered by Rose and Robin are in the most convenient and quiet location at the edge of the village. Never used the car unless leaving the village. Postcard views, steps to all the amenities of the village life. Loved dining at L'Antiquaire for a special lunch; enjoyed the "center of activity" ambience of Cafe Gaby for most of our meals and snacks. Never found better cappucino anywhere else for the rest of our trip elsewhere! You feel like you are staying with old friends, and Rose and Robin are the consummate hosts, offering thorough, personal advice on everything large and small. Clean, quiet accommodations with wonderful bed, large bathroom with wonderful shower and tub, and romantic dinners on the courtyard terrace. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in this part of Provence. You'll remember your congenial hosts, and dream of beautiful Lourmarin forever.

Schlaf- und Badezimmer ohne Fenster

  • 2 of 5
Die Wohnung courtyard apartment ist nagelneu und sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Vermieterin ist nett und auch an der Lage gibt es nichts Auszusetzen. Trotzdem erlebten wir eine unangenehme Überraschung. Schlaf- und Badezimmer des neuen Appartements befinden sich ein paar Treppen tiefer in einem ehemaligen Keller. Das heißt, man zieht in der Küche den Kopf ein und steigt zum Schlafen und Duschen hinab. Beide Räume sind sehr niedrig und ohne Fenster, ohne Türe und ohne Belüftung. Jedes Geräusch, das man auf der Toilette macht, ist in der ganzen Wohnung zu hören. Das Minibad hat zudem eine laute Druckluftabsauganlage, weil es so niedrig liegt, dass alles Abwasser hoch gepumpt werden muss. In dem fensterlosen Schlafzimmer bekamen wir bald Beklemmungen, da man nur auf Wände schaut. Zudem wurden nach ein paar Tagen die Kleider feucht. Ein elektrischer Luftentfeuchter steht zwar bereit, aber in den Ferien möchte ich nicht in eine unterirdische Höhle ziehen. Für Räume ohne Fenster ist die Wohnung entschieden zu teuer. Wir hatten Gott sei Dank gutes Wetter. Bei Regen stelle ich es mir unerträglich vor.
