Guestbook comments from the owner

It is our pleasure to highly recommend La Grange De La Lavande, an absolutely wonderful accommodation in the quaint village of Lardiers, France, where we stayed for ten days this past September, 2013. Since we both looked forward to cooking the odd evening meal with everything purchased fresh on village market days, the spacious kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, all high end. The large antique table served both for eating as well as an area to spread out maps, routes and travel guides to plan our next day’s excursion. The private outdoor patio, enclosed by stone walls and planters, was fabulous for sitting at the table with a glass of wine, some cheese and french bread at the end of the day - a heavenly sanctuary. The bedroom was beautifully appointed with two large armoires and a very comfortable king-sized bed. The bed linens and towels again, all high end. We were able to open the large bedroom shutters to catch the quiet ambiance of Lardiers. The bathroom had everything we required - lots of hot water, a great shower and a toilette with a good flush (which sometimes is a luxury in Europe!) This prime location was a perfect base for exploring entire Provence, with the village of Banon, famous for its cheese and market, only a ten minute drive. Avignon, Arles, Aix en Provence and Marseilles are easy day-trip drives as well. Mike and Rossi, the owners, were friendly, helpful and always ready to make recommendations for routes into the countryside, while at the same time respecting our privacy. They are a wealth of information and suggestions, right down to where to park (a real time saver). Again, we highly recommend this accommodation to anyone interested in exploring Provence, and we are looking forward to returning to La Grange De La Lavande again and again.

Great place to relax, very clean and neat, all the comforts that you need, plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Rosi were great hosts, very cheerful and accommodating. They were very helpful with directions to the area, and very good with places to see and things to do in the region. They did a fantastic job converting a barn into a very comfortably living area.The village has some old world charm. While the homes were old they were in very good shape. The village was quiet and restful. If you are looking to get away from the crowds this is a good place to go. We went during the winter holidays and the unit was warm and relaxing, good to unwind. Many street markets in the area. We did not have any issues or problems with our time there. It went very smoothly.

Pretty, lovely place and lovely people

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the La Grange de la Lavande. It was clean, lovely furnished and it´s located in the heart of Provance, with many of lavender fields and old villages. :)

Rosi and Mike were very helpful, they gave us many tipps about beautiful places to visit, such as the amazing lake, La Perle du Verdon.

The La Grange de la Lavande is a perfect accommodation for a perfect Provance-trip. :) I can only recommend it!

Lardiers offered everything promised.

  • 5 of 5

Lardiers is a very small village near nothing. The nearest town is 15 KM away, o everything must be done by car. That said, the renovated barn was very nice. The only problem was that there is no WC downstairs and the spiral staircase was difficult for my aged knees. Mike and Rosie are very charming and very helpful; Mike gave us a list of nearby attractions and road trips that allowed us to explore and enjoy Provence.

I would recommend this property very highly to people who enjoy exploring by car, or just relaxing in the village and preparing one's own meals. Markets are available in nearby town that provide many local products, so cooking and eating can be a real pleasure.

WE RECOMMEND THIS ACCOMMODATION TO ALL OUR FRIENDS.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Grange de la Lavande in the first two weeks of Oct 2013. We enjoyed Mike & Rosi’s hospitality and their great information about the surrounding areas in Provence.

Everything is as pictured and the area is beautiful. The accommodations were as described and comfortable. Our friends asked us about where we stayed and we recommended La Grange de La Lavande to all. We hope to return someday.

We stayed 2 wks from 21/12/12 till 04/12/13. Mike & Rosi, the owners of the gite, were very warm and welcoming and made sure that our stay was the best it could be... and it was indeed.

We have never stayed in a holiday gite in such a great condition. Everything was super comfortable and super clean.

Description of ad is accurate and you get it all (and more).

Will stay again if holidaying in the region, and I would recommend it to anyone
