About Karine Dunesme

When we discovered this farmhouse at the foot of the Lubéron Mountains: it was love at first sight… it was exactly what we were looking for: an old Farmhouse with its own history (this house dating back to 1749 is a former tile factory), and night-time rooms being available, which allowed everyone to have their own privacy, while creating a “Ricoré family” atmosphere, a dream from our childhood, each one of us being an only child.

Karine Dunesme purchased this villa in 2008

Why Karine Dunesme chose Luberon

La Bastide de Ménerbes perfectly symbolizes all the attractions of the house of charm:

The calm in a wonderful place, 

Near the center of the village and all amenities 

A comfortable, warm house, where everyone feels at home at the entrance to the house 

Friendly public spaces and rooms where the privacy of everyone is respected,

A large pool with a range of games, and a bathroom child. Specific services on demand: chef, cook, baby sitter, housekeeper, cooking classes ...

Our goal you an unforgettable holiday!

We have been wellcomed and given best hints for our stay in the house and for sightseeing. The intire house is well equiped in every room, a pity was only that the big window/door in the living room could not be opened. Especially for groups with children the house is perfect.

just as described - very attractive

  • 4 of 5

An authentic and quirky French house in private quiet surroundings, perfectly located for exploration of Vaucluse/Luberon. Close to but outside the village of Menerbes, with wonderful boulangerie, and attractive restaurants. Superbly equipped house, we wanted for nothing, and all our party had a wonderful stay.

We were expecting a special place but were still very excited to find the facilities, decore and presentation of this lovely home exceeded our expectations. We were a family group of 11 with grandparents, and two families with 5 children ranging in ages from 13 down to 12 months.

All found their own private bedrooms that were very tastefully decorated and sufficiently spaced from the others so that the younger children could sleep in while we enjoyed early morning breakfast in the loggia area beside the pool. Indeed we spent many long lunches and evenings around the huge table with the charcoal BBQ being very proficient at turning the fresh guinea fowl and meat from the many local markets into fine French fare.

The kitchen was very well equipped with all the cooking utensils a master chef would need and equally there was a huge number of dinner plates and serving platters that made meal time so much fun.

Our dealings with Karine to organise the rental were very prompt and helpful and our welcome was made especially warm by HERVE who kindly made the long trip to Nice to collect our daughter and family and bring them to Menerbe.

The location of the villa is fantastic as it is close enough for a 15 minute walk up the hill to the quaint town of Menerbe and very close by car to the other hill villages.

We did venture further afield one day to the medieval town of Les Baux where the kids loved clambering over the old ruins but the highlight for everyone in our group was the Quarries of Lights (Carrières de Lumières). Do not miss this spectacular light and sound display and allow at least an hour inside.

We have stayed in numerousl HomeAway rental properties in France and although it is not cheap we would highly recommend this as a the best we have experienced and we all agree 2 weeks would be better than one.
