"We loved the Barrulaires Gite! It’s a meticulously restored stone farmhouse cottage atop a small mountain in the Luberon a few miles from Apt. The property features a lovely view, and the cottage itself has wonderful décor coupled with all the up-to-date conveniences one would hope for. The owner – the irrepressible Betty – greeted us in the driveway with a flashlight at 10:30 pm when we arrived very owing to an Air France strike. She provided sage advice throughout our stay as to local attractions, stores and farmers’ markets, restaurants, etc.
Some might find the location a bit remote, but we enjoyed the solitude and privacy and did not mind the short drive into town for provisions or restaurants. Many of the major sites of the region are less than an hour’s drive. Apt itself is filled good restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, wine shops etc. It’s a lovely jog or walk from the gite down the mountain into the picturesque village of Buoux. Nearby Fort Buoux is definitely worth a half-day visit and the climb to the top is exhilarating. Our only problem was a bit of difficulty with intermittent internet service during our week in September, but we understand Betty has since fixed the problem. [She is a U.S. expatriate married to a Frenchman, and she used her bilingual abilities to help us with dinner reservations]. Too many great restaurants in the area to mention, but it’s hard to go wrong."

"We are frequent renters of beautiful homes in fabulous locations and have very high standards regarding the properties we stay in. This home is absolutely terrific in almost every way. The view is simply one of the best you can have in the Luberon Valley, the home is clean, well-cared for and very nicely furnished. The art work is spectacular (not an exaggeration, the owner is a noted artist and his paintings adorn the home) and the owner is extremely pleasant to deal with; reasonable, thorough and very customer-oriented. We stayed here for 5 weeks and will be returning for another 5 weeks because we loved it so much. You simply cannot go wrong with this beautiful home and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to rent a first-rate property in a stunning setting."
