A great property!

A lovely villa, a very thorough and detailed explanation of all the region by the owner, who is very nice. A large and comfortable place. The kids called it a palace..

Wonderful Property and welcoming owners!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Les Murier (west wing) with our 3 children (ages 15, 11, 6). This was one of our best holidays ever! The Property is located at the heart of the Luberon which enabled us to take daily trips to the regions various attractions. The House is delightfuly decorated a la "proveance" style thanks to the owner's good taste. Very clean and well maintained, with fully equiped kitchen, 3 toilets and 2 bathrooms, as well as spacious living room. It has a beautiful seperate garden area with BBQ and ping pong, where we had our dinners. The pool was the highlight, especially for the kids who spent most of the afternoons there. The owners, Andree and Bernard are wonderful and delightful people, and were very friendly and welcoming at all times. This was especially helpful as they are on site and we do not speak French. We already recommeneded this place to all our friends and hopefully would love to return soon again!

A comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

If you like the Luberon, walking, local markets, Avignon, Aix-au-Provence, Arles, Cassis, then stay at Les Murier or Les Olivier. It is the ideal location to explore this beautiful part of Provence. Our apartment was perfect for our family with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, clean and well-equipped. The owner was on site and very friendly and welcoming. We'd love to come back.

Les Borrys/Les Muriers

  • 5 of 5

Les Borrys? Les Muriers? No, never heard of it.....ssshhhhh Provence’s best kept secret!

A simply perfect week, but you’ll need to make it two to take advantage of this idyllic and very well appointed farmhouse retreat – rustic, but with a pool, dishwasher, fridge, washingmachine, poolside fridge, separate garden area and BBQ, three toilets/bathrooms, Sky TV and ping pong! There are plenty of local food markets, beautiful scenery and of course excellent wine. Les Muriers is the bigger of the two properties on offer – it does sleep 6 but 2 of those would have to be a sofa bed in, it also has direct access to the pool although the accommodation is up a flight of stairs. Owners are deligthful and very helpful for things to do and very child friendly. You'll be wise to book early.

A place to relax comfortably

  • 5 of 5

We, that is a family of 9 persons between 45 and 84, stayed in this 19th century farmhouse last May. It was simply wonderful there. Everything was so tidy, clean and spacious. It was also comfortable - even for our parents who can't walk very well. Everything was just as we had read before in the description. We liked to sit at the long breakfast table next to a perfectly equipped kitchen in the morning, went sightseeing after that - there are lots of interesting places within an hour's drive - and relaxed at the pool in the late afternoon. In the evening we had some BBQs a few metres from the poolhouse and went swimming in the late night - this was no problem, because of the pool floodlight. The owner was extremely helpful; not only with her suggestions about what to see and what to do, where to shop and which restaurants to visit. She even helped us with her credit card when we weren't able to get some fuel at a supermarket filling station. Meanwhile we recommended her house and the facilities to lots of our friends.
