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!

Wondeful house, idyllic setting, great family hous

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Paul and Maria's wonderful home for a second two-week visit this summer, as our first visit two years ago could not have been more perfect. We had our three young children (ages 5, 8 and 10), as well as my parents. The house accommodated us all quite comfortably. The kids once again loved the large pool, as well as the new addition of the trampoline. We all loved the idyllic setting and beautiful views, and meals al fresco on the porch and patio. The house is a 15 minute walk from a charming small village, and within a 30-60 minute drive there are many different beautiful towns to visit for day trips. The house, gardens and pool provide a wonderful retreat to relax in the afternoon and evening after some outings. Paul and Maria take meticulous care of the house and we found it has everything we needed. We hope to come back again!

Living like a God in France

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Paul and Maria's home in the Luberon valley three times. The accomodations and the property are top notch. The latest addition, a sunken trampoline next to the swimming pool, was a real crowd pleaser - and not just for the kids.

Most importantly, the view from the upstairs terrace is guaranteed to sooth your soul - from sunrise to sunset.

Lovely quiet location and child friendly garden

  • 4 of 5

Les Cerises is located in a real quiet wooded area and has stunning views of the valley. All the bedrooms are large and have ensuites and the property is very clean, well-equipped and practical albeit décor a bit dated. The garden is the real draw-card with the kids spending their days between swimming pool and excellent trampoline. A trampoline with a better view I have never seen! Villa definitely recommended for location and garden.

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!
