Guestbook comments from the owner
Eleven of us stayed here, including five children aged 2 to 9. We all had a fantastic time and would happily have stayed another week!

The owners were there when we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful.

The house and grounds are spacious and well cared for and the view is amazing!

The pool is a great size and there are plenty of loungers and seats for everyone. However the shallow end is not very shallow, even the nine year olds struggled to touch the bottom (it didn't seem to affect their enjoyment though) It's useful to have a fridge by the pool too. The trampoline and play area are right next to the pool which is handy for keeping an eye on the children.

All the bedrooms are light and spacious and have their own bathroom, although beware the mezzanine bed really isn't for little ones.

If you're with little ones then there isn't anything in walking distance, but it's only a few minutes in the car to Saint Saturnin (which is well worth a visit) or ten minutes into Apt with shops, cafes and the huge supermarket. There are loads of fantastic places to visit in this area of Provence (we've been three times now) and the house provides a really good base to explore.

The owners have provided two mountain bikes and I can totally recommend a sun-down bike ride along the quiet roads around the property - whatever your fitness level. Although you may have to walk the last bit up the very steep hill to the house.

If you're feeling more energetic my husband and his brother hired bikes and cycled to the top of Mont Ventoux....

There's also a small lake for fishing about five minutes away which my boys loved (take your own kit though).

All in all a great holiday, thanks Maria and Paul!

A perfect week in the Luberon

  • 5 of 5
We travelled along way, from New Zealand for a special birthday of one of our party of six. A dream to spend time in the Luberon valley of Provence. The house was perfect for us. Lots of wonderful spaces, all with delightful views over the garden and the valley beyond. The photos online, were very accurate. Paul and Maria, greeted us on arrival, and were very helpful with information about the local area. We loved our local village which had , a couple of charming restaurants, and every day we did great day trips, nothing being too far away. from the house, returning late afternoon, to enjoy the counttryside surroundings. Although it wasnt quite warm enough to swim in the lovely pool, we enjoyed late afternoon drinks, beside it.
The house has all the facilities you need for a wonderful holiday, we enjoyed cooking and using the bbq in the evenings, and admiring the view, which is very peaceful. The local town of Apt, only 10 mins away by car, was also a favourite.
We have no hesitation in recommending this property for a delightful stay in the Luberon.

Ein wunderbarer Flecken Erde!

  • 5 of 5
Bereits der Kontakt mit den Vermietern per Mail und Telefon verlief unkompliziert und herzlich.
Das Haus ist ein Traum. Die beiden Küchen sind super ausgestattet, es fehlt an nichts.
Auch die Schlafzimmer sind gut eingerichtet, jeweils mit eigenem Bad. Das ist ideal mit den Kindern und für mehrere Familien.
Der absolute Luxus sind die Terassen, die zu jeder Tageszeit und je nach Bedarf, Sonne oder Schatten bieten. Umgeben von wunderschönen Pflanzen ist Erholung garantiert.
Die Kinder spielen von morgens bis abends im riesigen Garten mit Trampolin, Tischtennis, Schaukel,... es kommt nie Langeweile auf.
Einen grossen Teil des Tages verbringen wir am Pool. Es bleiben keine Wünsche offen Sonnenliegen mit Kissen, Kühlschrank, Hängematte im Schatten... Wir waren viel im Wasser.
Kleine Ausflüge gab es nach Saint-Saturnin, Roussillon, Apt, Gordes, Village des Bories. All dies ist absolut sehenswert, aber am schönsten war es "nach hause" zu kommen, in den Pool zu springen und die wunderschöne Aussicht über den Lubéron zu geniessen.
Am Abend kochen wir gemeinsam in der grossen Küche im ersten Stock und lassen den Abend auf dem grossen Balkon bei gutem Wein ausklingen.
Dieser Urlaub war für uns Erwachsene und für unsere Kinder ein Traum, und wir denken noch sehr oft daran.
Liebe Maria und lieber Paul, vielen Dank und garantiert auf Wiedersehen im Lubéron!

Beautifully located house on the natural hill in the middle of Provance. Wonderful, garden with big swimming pool.and a lot of shady nooks. Big house with separate areas for relaxation so it can be recommended for a group of friends.

Domaine Les Cerises

  • 5 of 5
Domaine Les Cerises is a peacefully located villa with magnificent view of the Luberon hills, the garden is like a Monet painting, very colorful and lots of hidden places to find privacy to read a book while in the hammock or have a morning coffee while looking at the beautiful view. The house is very spacious as well very clean. You can feel that the interior has been decorated with an artistic touch, I love the soft colors in each room.With six adult friends with various interest this place is the perfect spot to relax, go for a hike or bike, also to visit the lovely surrounding villages such as Gordes we just loved to walk around and have a lunch. The local markets especially one Apt offers a variety of fresh food you can BBQ (American style, with French flavored herbs)cook and dine outside in the sun setting Provence evening with some good chilled local Rose. We loved the space and will come back on our next European trip, I highly recommend this domaine for the romantic ones as well for families, the pool and playground, as well the large property is quite fun and adventurous for active children. The owners Maria and Paul Fransen are very friendly and accommodating any last request you might have.

Holiday at the Domaine des Cerises

  • 3 of 5
The Domaine des Cerises villa is beautifully situated on a hill overlooking the Luberon valley. The area is calm and peaceful thereby ensuring a serene and relaxing holiday. Saint Saturnin les Apt is a cute little village and very near to many of the beautiful villages (Gordes, Roussillon, Venasque,...) in the area.The house itself is spacious - the ensuite bedrooms were appreciated by the various family members. In the morning, breakfast was taken on the upstairs terrasse where we could drink in the magnificent view. Lunch and dinner were taken in the terrasse downstairs in the shade (much welcome givne the temperatures) near the gardens and the swimming pool.

In spite of the space in the house, both kitchens lacked storage space (for food). Also given the size of the house and the maximum potential number of occupants, we would suggest a larger fridge (especially in the kitchen downstairs). The furnishings were simple but adequate.

The swimming pool is large and was appreciated every single day. However, the tiling around the pool was uneven and/or cracked in some areas, while the worn-down tiles were slippery. This necessitated great caution when walking around the pool - especially by the younger children.

The bicycle left at our disposal was handy - a great way to see some sights and get some exercise!

The owners were friendly and welcoming and provided us with great advice on the surrounding towns and villages (sightseeing, practical information, walks, scenic areas, restaurants, etc.). We took them up on their advice and were not disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a wonderful vacation in Domaine Les cerises.
Also we were very pleased to hear you have used the 2 new mountain bikes.
The villa is very spacious, as you mention, with a magnificent view, we are happy to hear you and your family have enjoyed it. The upstairs kitchen has 2 small fridges ( comparable to 1 large), and the downstairs kitchen had 1 large fridge. In our view and also the views from other guest it should be sufficient. By departure you mention that by the pool a corner tile was slippery. We noticed then that the tile surface was not rough anymore and we will replace this and check the others. We appreciate it you have told us, because other guest haven't and so we are very pleased you did. We are happy to hear you liked the pool size. In the Summer the pool is a must for children and we are pleased that you and your children enjoy the very large pool. We hope to welcome you again some time in the future. Paul and Maria
