  • "Merveilleux" in every way!

    "We spent a week at this property, and it was like something out of a fantasy. The house is absolutely stunning and exactly what we hoped a Provence farmhouse would be. The photos can't do it justice; you have to see it to believe it. The interior is first class, very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is incredible and very well equipped; if you like to cook, you will love this kitchen. The three main bedrooms are spacious and luxurious (we didn't use the fourth, smaller bedroom). The exterior of the house is beautiful, too: a charming stone building surrounded by professionally landscaped gardens, a pool, and views of the village of Murs and the valley below. Like something out of Provence Homes & Gardens magazine (if there is such a publication)! Finally, we would be remiss is we didn't mention the lavender field directly behind the house. It was in full bloom during our visit and truly spectacular. "Merveilleux" in every way."

  • Great Place - Great Stay!

    "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."

  • The perfect cliche'

    "This house is all that you would hope it would be! We stay in luxury homes all over the world and this was not a disappointment! Charming is the perfect word without calling the house small for a family of 5! We loved the house, the location, the nearby villages and markets....all a dreamy place to relax, read, and just be with each other! The beds were comfy, the decor was beautiful, the amenities were all that we needed. I would definitely return!"

  • 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!"
