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."
