A Provencal Gem
A Provencal Gem
A fantastic house in a wonderful area. The house is very spacious and comfortable and feels like a real home. It is amazingly well equipped with unbelievable quantities of things in cupboards - there is nothing you would not be able to find in the kitchen/pantry! It's got the lot! If you are looking for a large house so you are not on top of each other then this is the one. You would definitely need more than one family if you wanted to fill both houses. There are so many places to sit and reflect whilst soaking up the stunning views, and different options on where to eat - this terrace or that one, and plenty of space around the swimming pool to accommodate everyone, with lots of cushions and towels. Every bedroom is en-suite except for one where the bathroom is opposite, so it is very comfortable. It has a table tennis table, trampoline and swings and a grassy area where you could play badminton or such like. The area itself is charming with wonderful towns and villages to explore, and many great restaurants. It is rural so it is a quiet holiday, but that is what we like. We have 4 children of all ages and they all enjoy it. It is a gem!

Beautiful Country House, in a stunning location
Beautiful Country House, in a stunning location
An amazing sanctuary from the UK and all that we have come to expect from our summers. This exquisite country house offered my family, friends and I an extremely relaxing two weeks in beautiful sunshine with views of the Luberon mountain range and its stunning surroundings, you will never want to leave. It has everything mentioned and more. Whether you’re taking a dip in the fresh water pool, or having a siesta under the trees with a gentle breeze, sipping a cold glass of Rose on the veranda, staying here will relax you more than you thought possible! I cannot recommend this holiday destination enough. The villages of Lacoste and Bonnieux are very charming with great restaurants, boulangeries and bars. The house itself is extremely well equipped and very comfortable, with soft pillows, wonderful cotton sheets and very comfy beds. There is also a great library of books, cds / dvds and Sky tv which is great for the children. No mosquitos on our stay which I was very glad about. I would thoroughly recommend this house as I have done to my friends who will be visiting this summer.

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!
