"We had an amazing time in Provence, all thanks to Emma and Herve's house. It's very well located and easily access. The house is very clean and well equipped, the garden is amazing with a lovely pool. We highly recommend this house to families with young children. Emma and Herve have floats, football, ruby ball, badminton, cards to name a few. At times, we just stayed in and enjoyed the sun and the pool. Thank you Emma and Herve!"

"We stayed here - two couples - for a week in September 2014 and enjoyed our stay.
The town of Apt is a good base for exploring the villages of the Provence / Luberon area including Roussillon, Gordes, Menerbes and Bonnieux and is only about an hour from the autoroutes and Avignon.
The town has all the standard amenities - shopping, restaurants and markets. It is an old town so most of the streets are not suitable for vehicles. For drivers, park beside the river adjacent to the D900 or the market square to the east of town. Note the warnings for flooding during heavy rain or cars being towed for the market so that there are no surprises.
The apartment is located in the center of Apt, a block away from Ste Anne's Cathedral, about five minutes away from the parking areas, and consists of the upper floors in an old building.
It is quite difficult to imagine the layout from the photographs so this may help. The apartment is accessed by a narrow staircase and the main level is about fifty stairs from the street level. The main level contains the kitchen and living area, one bedroom and loft, toilet and shower / laundry room.
The kitchen is well equipped with all the modern conveniences and a table and chairs for dining. The living area is small with few chairs but has TV and Wi-Fi connections. The TV sound did not work while we were there but that was not an issue for us since we were not watching any TV. The Wi-Fi connection was reliable and we used it with an Ipad for email etc.
On the same level is the first bedroom with a double bed. This also is the access to a small loft with a small bed. This would be suitable for a couple with a young child.
The toilet is a separate WC, and the shower and laundry facilities share the same room.
On the next upper level (another dozen or so stairs) is a loft which overlooks the kitchen / living area. This has twin beds and a low beam. You will at some time (guaranteed) bang your head on the beam.
On the next upper level is an enclosed rooftop loft (another ten or so steps) with a table and a few chairs and a pleasant view over the rooftops of Apt.
The apartment was clean and many basic items were provided - salt and pepper, dish soap, garbage bags, laundry detergent - and stores were within walking distance.
The apartment is well run and the owner is flexible and personable and available if you have any questions or need assistance. We would recommend this property to others."

"My husband and I spent two glorious weeks in La Maison Amelie, a gorgeous little Provençal cottage. The house was ideally located in the centre of Lourmarin, a magical bustling medieval village.
The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped; it was like a home from home. We enjoyed relaxing in the private, shady courtyard; a welcome treat after a day's sight seeing.
The weather was very hot, but the air conditioning helped keep us cool. The kitchen, living area and bathroom are on one level. The large spacious bedroom is downstairs, in the basement of the house, accessed via a little stone staircase. Sometimes it got very hot in the bedroom at night.
Lourmarin is "the prettiest" French village we have ever stayed in. We loved people watching in Cafe Gabby's, strolling along the cobbled streets, exploring all the little shops and eating out. There were so many restaurants to chose from. Our favourite, Nonni's was literally on our doorstep.
We didn't get the chance to meet Kristine and Thierry but Kristine constantly kept in touch with us via email and telephone, checking we had everything we needed. A very attentive hostess who speaks excellent English!"
