Fabulous location and magical home
We had the best vacation at this truly wonderful home. The amenities were top notch and the house was both comfortable and beautiful. The gardens surrounding the house will put an immediate smile on your face and are perfect for outdoor dining, relaxing and just enjoying life. The pool is perfect for hot days and the village is just a short stroll where you can get caught up in the market or have a nice dinner. We are still talking about our magical vacation and are planning how we can return next year.
Sejour fabuleux dans un cadre idyllique
Nous avons loué le Mas principal. Cette magnifique demeure, pleine de charme est calme, propice au repos et a la relaxation, au milieu d'un vaste domaine de pins et d'oliviers, donnant sur le château de Lourmarin.
Ici bien qu'à 2 minutes à pieds du centre du village, la tranquillité est absolue.
Ce séjour à ete enchanteur et nous ne rêvons plus que d'y retourner.
Merci pour votre gentille appréciation, cela a été un vrai plaisir de vous recevoir.
Incredible property, views and location!
Nathalie received us warmly. Our stay was truly enjoyable and memorable. The house is ideally located (a few minutes walk from the town center and castle) and equipped, and is as great as advertised. The views of the castle, village and fields are spectacular. The atmosphere was magical. We loved every minute of our stay. We hope to return soon to the "Mas Castéùsé."
PS: I should add that Nathalie was very responsive to our needs and desires, and friendly. She truly cares about her guests.
