Comfortable and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a most pleasant two weeks in this comfortable and well-appointed house. The rooms were spacious and clean and we had all the equipment we needed. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine or shade and we especially enjoyed the lovely pool. Close to some inviting walks and only ten minutes or so from the excellent restaurants in town. A very relaxing experience.

Our second stay at this brilliant villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay. Bright, immaculate and private with our own pool and surrounded by the garrigue. Our hosts were exceptional and discreet. If you must tear yourself away from the villa then it is well situated to access many parts of Provence including: Gorge du Verdon, Mont Ventoux, Gorge du Nesque and the Camargue. It's a short walk to the local village which has everything to hand. Some very nice restaurants all around the area. Will recommend highly to friends.

Beautiful villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit here and as usual everything was just perfect. The villa is spotless, the owners welcoming, friendly and always on hand to answer any questions. There is a garden which gives day long sun and shade, a lovely pool, lots of seating on both the lower and upper terraces and fantastic views. The property is very peacefully situated at the end of a lane and is quiet both day and night. It is just a short 15 minute stroll to the village for restaurants, bars and shops.

Our 4th excellent stay at Le Chene

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa situated in a peaceful location with beautiful walks on your doorstep & beyond. It is only a short walk to the charming village of St. Saturnin, which offers all amenities. Le Chene is of a very high standard, spotlessly clean & equipped with everything you need. The upper terrace offers shade & the most amazing views. David & Karen are excellent hosts & share their vast knowledge of all the best places to visit & restaurants to eat. There are so many, including lots of wonderful markets in the nearby villages & towns! We thoroughly recommend Le Chene as a place to spend your holiday.

A perfect spot in the Luberon

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Le Chene. It is a very well appointed and equipped holiday home.The 3 double bedroom/3 bathroom combination works particularly well for 3 couples. It's location on the edge of town makes for an easy walk for morning bread or an evening trip for a drink or a meal. The views of the Luberon from the house are very special and we particularly liked sitting in the upper terrace which provides a nice bit of cool shade in which to eat or just sit and relax. Even though it was late summer the pool was still warm enough and we swam regularly.

In summary we found Le Chene a very high quality place to stay, which was a good base for day trips, as weĺl as a good place just to relax at home and enjoy the comfort anqd facilities. And the owners, who live nearby, have the canny knack of being helpful while remaining unobtrusive.

We can't wait to return next year.
