Just wanted to say we absolutely love your place and have been able to switch off work for a few
Days (which is unusual for us)!
As we obviously don't want to leave, we are keen to come back next year!
We cannot recommend this place highly enough - in over a decade of holidaying every year in the Luberon this is the best place we have found. It combines a stunning interior with a lovely garden and pool area. It is in grounds large enough to offer complete privacy and solitude but with a village just a few minutes drive away with a bakery, butcher and a good choice of places to eat. Well situated for many of the fantastic markets and for anyone who is a wine lover the options are endless. We are returning for our third stay next year.
Our stay was delightful. The villa is beautifully and tastefully laid out, both inside and out and all the mod cons and basics are in place to make your stay comfortable and easy. Attention is obviously paid to detail over this aspect, which we much appreciated. The swimming pool was a huge success with both myself, my children and grandchildren and I found both the local contact person and the owner very supportive,informative and helpful both
in connection with the local area and any problems/difficultes. Our stay was a huge success and we found the villa to be delightful, as indeed was the surrounding area. I would not hesitate to repeat the experience and to recommend it to friends..
Excellent Villa- large, spacious, beautiful setting and wonderfully traditional in design. The 3 areas of the house suited 3 couples very well. A little more attention to detail would have made it perfect eg pool cover and toaster broken, limited instructions, not enough hand towels provided, insufficient cutlery, no welcome pack - which you would expect at this price. But generally this didn't detract from the lovely holiday we all had
The villa is lovely and spacious. Plenty of room and the grounds are well maintained. A few minor hitches did not detract from the enjoyment. Christian (the manager) was very friendly and approachable. Lovely.
The house is in a stunning location with lovely views over the Luberon. We hired bikes and visited many of the beautiful local towns . Roussillon is very close by car or a stiff uphill cycle walk , but worth it when you get there with plenty of restaurants , bars and boutique shops.
The house itself was very spacious ,comfortable and clean. The grounds are extensive with plenty to occupy yourself , such as swimming in the large pool , boules and table tennis .
Any questions or help needed were dealt with quickly by Neil , the owner, or his site manager , Christian.
Overall , a great and memorable stay . We wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return in the future.
This was just the perfect place to stay in the Luberon. It's rely well located. The area is breathtaking. This house is very well decorated and extremely comfy. The garden is big and very well taken care of, not mentioning the wonderful vista. Adults and kids had a blast in the pool! One week wasn't enough... Hope we'll be back soon!
Roussillon is located in the heart of the Luberon’s 'Golden Triangle' formed by the medieval hilltop villages of Gordes, Bonnieux, Lourmarin, Lacoste, Menerbes (featured in Peter Mayle's 'Year in Provence') and Oppede-le-Vieux, all of which are within 10-20 minutes drive.
The medieval village hides a picturesque maze of streets and squares, full of charming restaurants and art galleries. If you walk to the top of the village you will see wonderful panoramic views across the valley to the Grand Luberon, the slopes of Mont Ventoux, and the plateau of the Vaucluse.
The Luberon is considered to be the heart of Provence and the house is a perfect base to explore Avignon, Aix en provence, Orange and Arles all within an hours drive. The closest beach is located an hour's away at Cassis which has a fine sandy beach just outside the port, the Plage de la Grande mer. The French Riviera is two hours away.
It is a one hour drive to the international airports at Marseille and Nimes. The high speed TGV train service stops at Avignon is also one hour from the house.
