"My husband and I, and our daughter stayed at the Olive for a month last summer. The Olive was the perfect choice for a month of relaxing time in Provence. The house was very nice, well equipped and the surrounding garden of olive trees is absolutely beautiful. We spend many lovely days and evenings on the terrace overlooking the garden and the mountains. The house is located very close to the little charming village Saigon and we went to the bakery every morning by a little working path surrounded by wine yards. Marie-Christine and Roland was the most friendly and thoughtful hosts you can think of. They had equipped the house for our baby daughter upon our arrival, and they were helpfull through all our stay in giving good advice for trips, the best markets and so on. My parents came and stayed in the other house on the property "Cerise" and it was really perfect for two families. All together, we had an unforgettable stay at the Olive and we definitely want to come back."

"Nous avons passé une semaine de rêve dans cette belle maison située dans la partie orientale du Sud du Luberon, à côté de Grambois, joli village perché dans ce qui est pour nous la plus belle partie du Luberon. La maison offre tout ce qu'une grande famille-nous étions trois couples avec 4 enfants petits- peut souhaiter : espace, grandes pièces décorées avec goût et équipement fonctionnel. Le parc est un vrai terrain d'aventures pour les petits et la piscine à des dimensions permettant aux nageurs de s'exercer et aux enfants de jouer. Et puis on ne se lasse pas de la vue sur les collines du Luberon, notamment au coucher du soleil. Nous avons quitté cette maison avec regret et espérons avoir l'occasion de revenir un prochain été."

The information pack provided by the owner prior to our arrival helped make our stay a delight."

"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!"
