                                My family stayed for two weeks this summer and had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We have two small children (ages 7 and 4). Kristine was very helpful throughout the booking process all the way through departure. The cottage has one king size bed and one fold out couch both of which are very comfortable. The house is professionally decorated and every thing you could possibly need is at your fingertips. I must also say that it was very nice to have air conditioning in the summer as most homes in Provence do not have A/C. Kristine's husband met us when we arrived and showed us around the home and made sure we were comfortable. One of the best features of the cottage is its location in the heart of Lourmarin. We were literally 100 yards from the village bakery and 150 yards from all of the cafes. We would start our morning every day by picking up our warm croissants then sitting in the cafes and people watching while we had our espresso and planned our adventure for the day. After visiting over a dozen villages and in the Luberon area of Provence, all of which were beautiful, we can honestly say that Lourmarin was by far our favorite. Incidentally, it is the village where Peter Mayle (author of A Year In Provence and Provence A to Z) lives. Kristine's cottage is the perfect 'base camp' from which to explore Provence. The cozy courtyard is a wonderful place to enjoy a lunch or a glass of wine at the end of the day. Everything in Lourmarin is within easy walking distance from the cottage, including well over a dozen restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. One of the best restaurants, Pizzeria Nonni, is directly across the street. Also, I personally think that Lourmarin's Friday market is the best market we went to. It was easily navigable even in the busiest part of the summer holiday season. Kristine had tons of information in the cottage about the surrounding area including many personal recommendations for restaurants in Lourmarin and just about every village within an hour of the cottage. Kristine's cottage is perfect for couples or families with small children. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a true Provencal experience.

                                My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Maison Amelie. It was professionaly decorated, cozy and romantic. We had chose this cottage for the private garden and we were so glad we did. The garden was beautiful with the smells of fresh lavender. It was a perfect spot to read in the sun and enjoy a glass of wine. Very clean and well kept, everything we needed. We were very thankful for Kristine's recommendations in the area and her perfect english. Most beautiful place we have stayed, we hope to return someday.

                                The moment we were warmly ushered in by the cottage's charming owner, Kristine, we instantly knew that we would have a wonderful stay in Lourmarin, Provence. The eleven days that we spent exploring and enjoying the Luberon area and it's surrounds were simply incomparable to anything we've experienced before. La Maison D'Amelie was like a home away from home that we looked forward to going back to it after a whole day of soaking in the many natural gifts of Provence. Here we were able to relax while enjoying a movie or listening to music or relishing the region's Rose, cheese and different kinds of bread brought home from our day trips or purchased from the local village boulangerie and fromagerie. We look forward to our return to Provence and when we do, La Maison D'Amelie will definitely be our first choice!

                                After perfect directions of Kristine we walked in the cottage and where already in love in the lovely garden and location. Then we enter and loved all the personal details of the owners. For us the perfect place to stay! Everything was there and more...we felt very welcomed and everything was super! Lourmarin is an excellent base to explore the Provence and more like Casis *beach, and perfect to come home and enjoy the cafes for aperatif. All very lovely people. I will recomend the cottage to everybody. Thanks again for the very enjoyable stay!

                                We have had a very enjoyable week at maison Amelie..The house is very well situated in the village, a couple of minutes from cafés and shops. We highly appreciated the fully equipped kitchen to cook our tasty meals as well as the comfort of the spacious bedroom. We have felt very welcome everywhere in the village but especially in your home. Kristine, we want to thank you for all your suggestions regarding sightseeing and restaurants..We will count the days to return to Maison Amelie next year..!!

                                we are so happy to have found this adorable house in Lourmarin...From the moment we walked in we fell in Love with the place and the village. Shopping in the markets, canoeing in the sorgue and hiking in les beaux was a great experience..Having Breakfast every morning (with delicious pains of chocolat from the boulangerie) & reading the paper in your lovely garden was one of our magical moments at the house. Your home was very comfortable and we loved returning every evening to cook wonderful provencal dinners. Maison Amelie will stay in our heart and we hope to be back very soon.

                                The La Maison Amelie is very organized and comfortable. The Kristine is excellent and makes all the difference. And Lourmarin... is the perfect place for a vacation in Provence. My family loved!!!

                                Myself and my fiancee stayed in this beautiful little house for a week in October. It is located near the centre of the village and just a stones throw from the bakery (I am like a kid in a sweet shop every time I go!) The house itself is finished to a very high standard with everything you could need including wifi which was fantastic. It is full of charm and we instantly felt at home there. We met the owner when we arrived and she is very friendly. She has loads of local knowledge and all her advice on where was best to dine was spot on. The Mistral was blowing when we were there so we did not get a chance to take advantage of the lovely garden, however we have already booked our return visit for next June when no doubt there will be plenty of sunshine.

                                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing.
