  • Provence Paradise

    "We spent two delightful weeks at Monika's Sheherazde in June. At this time of year the days are hot and sunny, but the nights are cool. Though the cottage is equipped with air conditioning, we didn't use it the whole time! But we did enjoy the pool, where my wife swam multiple laps daily. Though her mobility is limited (she uses a walker), she found it easy to get in and out of the pool, and managed to do so without assistance. The cottage offers easy access, with one small step up; being all one level is a plus, so is the spacious bathroom with standup shower. It was such a pleasure to get to know Monika, who is a kind and generous host. We shared drinks and dinner with her several times on her poolside patio, and enjoyed her company at restaurants she recommended. She thoughtfully introduced us to her select circle of friends, which helped us improve our French while enjoying the social whirl. Monika herself speaks several languages, including perfect English, and is gifted in so many ways. Thank you for making our visit so special, Monika! Her "estate" is about 4 acres, and very much an oasis amid the commercial zone that has spread out around Cavaillon. Her 200 year old farm house faces south and overlooks a small orchard (thanks for the apricots, Monika!) and open fields dotted with cypress and lavender. The cottage is an annex to the house, but sheltered by a high garden wall which affords ample privacy if you want it. It is all very peaceful and beautiful. This is an ideal base for touring, on the edge of the hilly Luberon to the east and the Van Gogh country of Arles and St. Remy to the west. Daily markets offer excellent local produce and lovely wines. Not to be missed are nearby hill-towns like Menerbes and Gordes, as well as lesser-known Lourmarin nestled in a sunny warm valley. Sightseeing opportunities abound, though we seldom got beyond the restaurant terraces where we lingered over sumptuous lunches. Special mention should be made of the cuisine at Sous le Micocouliers in the village of Eygalieres, where the multi-course luncheons under the trees in the garden were a gastronomic high-point of our trip. We would certainly enjoy a return visit, and recommend Sheherazade in the highest possible terms!"

  • As wonderful as the photos

    "You have seen the website. You wonder if it can be as lovely. It is. Not only is it as lovely, but it is in perfect condition and perfectly clean. The owners live nearby, and this is comforting. Do it. You will be in love with the Luberon, Gordes, sunrise and sunset And olive trees. Note: for two people only."
