Guestbook comments from the owner

'Can't tell you how much we fell in love with La Source. Your descriptions of the place are exactly on point - no exaggerations - and the photos, while accurate, just begin to suggest the beauty of the view. Heaven indeed.

We really would love to come again - next week would be best (just kidding).' Barry P, Seattle

'Based on the photos on the web site and in the brochure, my expectations were high for La Source. I am pleased to report that the reality was even better. The house is great for a family or group of friends, the grounds flowered and natural and the view of the lush valley below enchanting. It makes a great base for touring the region. I give it a 12 on a 10 scale.' Harvey B, Taos NM

'It's difficult to get a real idea of the place from the photos, but it is exactly what we'd dreamed of. A view to die for; totally quiet; a delightful home; and, most importantly, endless tennis, swimming, table tennis etc to keep the kids happy. I couldn't think of a nicer house

There's a great selection of restaurants in the area - from farmhouse to top Michelin.

A number of golf courses in the area.Stables close by with rides from an hour to 2 days. Rafting, Canoing, ballooning can all be arranged as day trips. The sea is about 90 mins away - and sailing/speedboats can easily be hired for a day on the sea.

The historic village of Viens is a 7 min drive away and Apt, the thriving capital of the Luberon with its many shops and famous market, is a 12 min drive away.
