                  Owner info

                  About the owner: The houses have been our main residential family home until last year. We now principally live in the UK, and spend vacations here. A wonderful home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lacoste:
                  Uninterrupted views of the Luberon Valley, olive trees, lavender and fruit orchard surround us in perfect privacy. The house is fantastic for large groups, very spacious and very comfortable, so no one feels on top of one another. Previous guests have all said the photos do not do it justice and are so pleased they are returning next year!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Whether you want to laze by the pool and do nothing, or visit a local market, take the children and adults kayaking or visit the wonderful hilltop villages or roman ruins and old chateaux in the area - all are here! The short walk to the café in Lacoste is great for the younger adults too!
