About Sue Macdonald Armstrong

We live in Edinburgh, Scotland, and the Villa Les Cerisers is our second home.

I am a writer and my husband Stuart is a Charity Fundraiser. We are both in our sixties with 4 children, 4 grandchildren, and counting!

Sue Macdonald Armstrong purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sue Macdonald Armstrong chose Oppede

We knew we wanted this villa when we first viewed it, in the middle of a cherry orchard on a hill above Oppede and with a wonderful view of the Luberon Mountains.

What makes this villa unique

We, and our guests who rent the villa, find the combination of privacy and access to a lively village is ideal. We love the swimming pool and garden in the summer and the open log fire in the winter.

The skies are lovely, the sunsets spectacular.

A place to enjoy!

  • 5 of 5
This is a modern, spacious villa with all mod cons.It is clean and very tastefully and comfortably furnished. Everything you need. Outside there is a terrace to sit out and eat on and also a private swimming pool area with plenty of sunshine. It is a quiet area.
When we went, the pool was not yet open but weather was lovely. Plenty of walks and interesting places to visit. Springtime is stunning in the Luberon, with wild flowers and gorgeous smells everywhere.
The owner was very helpful and replied quickly to all my enquiries. Someone was there to meet us when we arrived to show us around.
I would recommend this property to anyone. One could have a lazy time around the pool in the summer or a more active visit at other times of the year.

Relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful two weeks in Villa les Cerisiers, our first time in this part of Provence, and the villa, location and surroundings surpassed all our expectations.

The location is ideal, being quiet and relaxing, but near to so many interesting places to visit. Our mixed family group enjoyed exploring the hill top villages, walks, and vineyards although the quality of the villa and its lovely garden, pool and view meant that we were also very happy to relax and enjoy time on site.

The villa itself is well-equipped, very comfortable and clean. The garden is lovely, and the views from the terrace stunning at any time of the day or evening. The walk into Oppede only takes a few minutes, and we appreciated having shops and the charming little bar so close to hand. The recommendations provided by Sue for trips and restaurants were really useful, and we came away feeling that we had only just started to get to know this beautiful area, with so much more to see than we had time for. We very much appreciated the opportunity to stay in this lovely home, and will definitely be returning next year.

Beautiful Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed ( two couples) in this lovely villa in June 2011. It is a very spacious & beautifully appointed property. We thoroughly enjoyed buying food at the many local markets & preparing the evening meal which we ate out on the terrace each night watching the sunset. We also managed to sample a wide range of Rosé wines the area is famous for.
There are many beautiful villages to be explored nearby & the towns of St Remy de Provence & Chateauneuf du Pape are within an easy drive & well worth the effort. The swimming pool was very welcome after these trips further afield.
We would love to come back again to stay in this very beautiful part of France & would not hesitate to stay in this lovely villa.
Sue provided a very detailed list of local attractions, recommendations for nice places to eat, & details of the weekly local markets. We found her a pleasure to deal with & felt we had made a great decision in choosing Villa Les Cerisiers. We had a very memorable holiday.

Lovely Villa in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely villa in Oppede in August 2010 and had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. The villa provided everything we needed and was set in a beautiful location. We (my husband, two children aged 7 and 5, and my in-laws) found the accomodation spacious and very quiet. The pool was fantastic! My children felt comfortable as there is a shallow end that they could stand in, but also a deeper end for the adults to cool off in. The views were outstanding and the village was nice, peaceful and very friendly.

The owners were very accomodating and were very quick to respond when a small problem with the kitchen sink presented itself. We had a repairman there the next day and the problem was resolved immediately! The villa is walking distance to a lovely cafe which serves very nice food (only at lunchtime.) There is also a shop, butcher and baker in the village.

We would definately recommend this property and will hopefully return for many more lovely family holidays.

Provence and its Accommodation at its Best

  • 5 of 5
In September 2009 we spent three weeks in this lovely villa, which offers all the convenience of modern living, with luxury and charm. This was particularly appreciated during the second week of our stay, when rain sometimes kept us indoors, and we cosied up with the plentiful books, music and DVDs thoughtfully provided by the owner. On the sunnier days the property’s facilities were also perfect, the beautifully maintained terraces, gardens and pool areas carefully planned to make the most of the stunning setting and views. The general location was very peaceful, with only the sounds from local farms providing a novel (for us!) reminder of our rural location. It was great too to be in walking distance of a friendly French village, and within easy striking distance of the spectacular scenery and archetypal Provençal towns described in the other reviews. We were joined during our stay by our twenty-something daughters, who loved the villa as much as we did. We all agreed we would very much like to return, though next time we might bring a second car, especially as there is plenty of space for off-road parking.

An idyllic villa in an idyllic spot

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two small children and I have spent the last two summers at the villa and absolutely love it. The area is full of picturesque villages and market towns: enough to visit a different one each day. After sightseeing we would return to the very welcoming pool for an afternoon of relaxation before an evening walking to the charming little bar in the village. My daughter would enjoy a chocolate crepe whilst we relaxed with a glass of rose.
