Recent Luberon Area reviews

  • Lovely and most relaxing home! Highly recommend...

    "Our family travelled to Europe in July-August for 3 weeks stopping for a few days first in Switzerland prior to making the drive to Southern France. Les Arches was all what we expected of a maison in the Luberon area and much more - it was just perfect for us! Photos did not really do justice in showing how fabulous this house is and its surroundings! The house is gorgeous - it is not surprised that it was featured in the Architectural Digest. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the view is just absolutely beautiful overlooking a hill and a cooperative vineyard (I think)- we ate every night in the outdoor dining area and watch the golden sunset and swallows fly by. The bedrooms are a good size, beds very comfortable, with a nice laundry area off the master bedroom. We love the little French kitchen and the formal dining area, and the interior of the house and its furnishings. Our kids enjoyed watching the village cats from their window. We used Les Arches as our base camp to travel around Provence - scenic drive to Nice, Marseilles, Arles, Avignon, Cannes, and Valensole and other nearby towns for the lavender and sunflower fields. Ansouis is a small, quaint and quiet village and it was really what we wanted and it was perfect for us - locals are friendly and I think knowing a little French or making an effort to speak French is appreciated (though spoke with an American accent). There is a small patisserie with excellent baguettes, petit fours and coffee! We often get up early to the sounds of the local church bells and walk up to the patisserie. Karen and Hans, the caretakers, are very warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area so, ask them about shopping (Lourmarin is my favorite but get there really early!), restaurants, vineyard, etc...There is so much to see! Thank you Karen and Hans! Curcuron, the setting of the movie "A good year" is close by and has a great market and restaurant. Denise, the owner, is very accommodating and responsive to our questions. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family! It was a perfect get away for all of us and would want to return soon. Just a tip in renting a car - get a small one to easily navigate the narrow streets."

  • Lovely Cottage in a Perfect Location in Lourmarin

    "My wife and I spent a week in Lourmarin in this truly charming and tastefully decorated cottage. The location is right in the village and very close and easily walkable to several delightful cafes, restaurants and a boulangerie. We used Lourmarin as a base, exploring and having lunch in different villages in the Luberon each day and returning to Lourmarin for wine at one of the cafes (Gaby's was our favorite) and dinner at one of the many walkable (from the cottage) local restaurants. Kristine kindly provided us, before our stay, a very detailed list of restaurants in the Luberon villages and throughout Provence as well. She also included excellent recommendations and comments so we could make our reservations well in advance of our visit ,as some of the restaurants (especially local favorites in the Luberon villages) can be difficult to book. In addition, there was a book of recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants put together by Kristine in the cottage and reference travel guides about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the cottage (and yes, the bed is extremely comfortable). Our travels around the Luberon each day were truly magical and we would recommend Lourmarin as the perfect base for exploring the area. The extra effort and guidance kindly extended by Kristine made our trip perfect. We would love to return to Maison Amelie and look forward to doing so in the near future!"

  • Quintessentially Provencal Villa Oozes Charm and Comfort

    "If there is a lovelier vacation home to stay in, I haven't been there. Everything has been thought of: comfortable furnishings, comfortable beds, great linens, beautifully decorated throughout with a French country shabby chic vibe, gourmet kitchen, inviting rooftop wine patio to take in the gorgeous views, massive fireplace to make it ever so cozy in the winter, and situated in a charming little village with a Michelin starred restaurant (La Closerie) steps from the door. We will be back!"

  • Good Base for Exploring

    "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."
