Lovely property in quiet, hilltop village with beautiful views. We were especially impressed by kitchen and bathrooms, all of which have been recently and tastefully redone. Double sinks in all bathrooms! Fast wifi and good selection of movies, although we usually found ourselves falling into bed early. Murs' one hotel offers wonderful dining. Nearby Roussillon and Gordes provide charming shops, restaurants, markets and other Provencal amenities. Very comfortable for 3 couples. Highly recommend.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, girls getaway.
Our stay at this beautiful hilltop retreat fulfilled our expectations. The photos and description accurately depicted the residence. The small city of Murs was a central location for discovery of the hill towns. Visiting the markets supplied great fresh food for preparing in this fully equipped kitchen, however, the nearby excellent bakery and small hotel restaurant provided stiff competition to home cooking. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would recommend this rental.
