Lacoste is an authentic Luberon village overlooking the valley that is a picture in all seasons. Close to all amenities and cultural events, yet peaceful. Real French village life. The apartment is private and has a great view.
Always the view, the light and the authenticity. Lacoste is NOT home to tourist boutiques and buses dropping off their loads for a whistle stop tour. It is gentle and relaxed
I've travelled extensively and stayed in many different types of accommodation but this apartment has to be my favourite so far. The place is full of charm and the view from this terrace is just amazing. You could sit reading outside or having a drink and don't feel the need to do anything even though there's plenty of things to see and do nearby. Caron and Finbarr were amazing hosts, thank you guys!
We enjoyed every minute of our week spent at Caron and Finn’s apartment. It was clean, spacious yet cozy, with a very comfortable bed and hot shower. The kitchen was obviously outfitted by someone who enjoys cooking or at least knows what a cook might want. SHARP knives and a salad spinner and a better carrot/potato peeler than the one at home! With the wifi access we could catch up on news back home if we wanted or listen to music when we just wanted to kick back and relax.
But for us the highlight of the apartment was the the terrace. The view across the valley was indeed stunning at any time of the day but especially at dawn. We sipped our morning coffee and listened to the birds serenade us as we waited for the sun to peek over the hills. Definitely something we’ve tucked away into our memory banks until we can return again.
For us Lacoste was a perfect location from which to explore the Luberon and enjoy some hiking. There are lots of great trails marked with yellow signs and Finn and Caron will give you additional tips. They are friendly, helpful hosts who live above, thus easily accessible if help is needed.
Give this apartment a try. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
I can't imagine a better place to stay, or better hosts (in Caron and Finn), than this lovely flat in the heart of the Luberon. Lacoste is beyond charming, full of quirky history and forgotten nooks, and just outside the beaten path. As a home base for exploring the Luberon, you can do no better. But be forewarned: the flat is so cozy and well-equipped, and the view from the private terrace over the vineyards and fields toward Bonnieux so idyllic, that it's very tempting just to stay put.
We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Thank you so much Caron and Finn. The Location could not be better, it is close to all our favorite places in the Luberon. The view from the terrace across the valley is spectacular. In the house we found all we needed for a wonderful stay. Our two dogs enjoyed the time also. We are hoping to return again.
My wife and I stayed three nights at this wonderful apartment in Lacoste. We were warmly greeted by the owners, Caron and Finn, who live above and were helpful, attentive, and great to chat with. The listing is exactly as described, clean and well-maintained, and best of all, quiet. The kitchen is well equipped and the terrace looking across the valley at the village of Bonnieux was perfect for eating meals and drinking a bottle of local wine in the evening. For breakfast, there were croissants and eggs available a short walk from the apartment. Market day in nearby villages provide delicious bread, cheese, salami, fruit, and wine. What more do you need?. We enthusiastically recommend this property!
What a gem! Stayed here for 4 nights & didn't want to leave. Ever. The apartment has character, stunning views and all mod cons, right down to the almost obligatory straw basket for market shopping (don't miss Lourmarin on Friday morning - the best market in the region). We went to a Rameau concert in St Luc church in nearby Menerbes which was wonderful, with a meal (not cheap but good) at Maison Truffe et Vins.
Or have lunch at Cafe de France just below the apartment, another 'must do'.
We're already planning a return. If you want comfort, views that last forever and helpful hosts then this is the place?
Each village in the area has a market so it is possible to find one on every day of the week, each with it's own character.
Cote du Rhone wine valley is 45 minutes drive away and offers numerous wine tasting vineyards.
