About Catherine Le Preux
Thank you for choosing LA MAISONNETTE and welcome to Provence! The minute you open the door, I hope that you feel comfortable and at home! Originally from France, I am the owner of www.lecolefrancaise.com. As such, I share my time between Washington State and Provence. I am fond of hiking, cycling through beautiful natural landscapes; gardening; visiting extraordinary private gardens and markets; learning more about fine art; oil painting; experiencing unique regional culinary specialties, cheeses, and wines; purchasing local art, crafts, and antiques; and sharing it all with clients, friends, and family members! This region offers it all and I am more than happy to send you a list of my favorite visits and restaurants upon request. Have a wonderful stay!

We were welcomed by Corinne and a beautiful fruit basket filled with local fruits and a bottle of local rosé wine.... We loved the decor and cleanliness... So many perfect details! Catherine has thought of everything for this darling vacation home! We had the most excellent stay with fabulous memories at the “Maisonette” and hope to revisit very soon!
Beautiful cottage in the French countryside
The cottage was a perfect place to base our travels around the Luberon countryside! Well stocked with everything you need. The location is about a mile from Menerbes, easy car ride or walk to town. Very comfortable with the a/c or plenty of windows to open for a nice breeze in the evening. Corinne had a beautiful fruit basket and bottle of wine waiting for us to enjoy on the upper terrace or the lower courtyard. We will return! Thank you Corinne!
Wonderful to be back at La Maisonette
I always enjoy coming back to this picturesque part of France, and to Catherine's house. It is great to see it available when planning a trip. Very charming and comfortable experience as the previous reviews attest. "Chapeau."
My family's recent stay at the farmhouse was excellent. Both the decor and cleanliness of the home are second to none. Catherine has clearly thought of every amenity a guest might require while staying at the home. The location is wonderful in that you're very close to town, yet nicely situated in the countryside with lovely views from the master bedroom window. We visited almost all the towns in the Lourmarin valley and Menerbes was easily our favorite. Thus, we felt fortunate to call Menerbes our home base while exploring this region of Provence. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that Catherine's pre-arrival brochure / instruction booklet were the most in depth and helpful I've ever received when booking a VRBO.
We weren't sure what to expect as it was our first time in Provence but we were blown away by the beauty and comfort of La Maisonette. The surrounding views and proximity of so many lovely day trips made for the perfect stay. Catherine's recommendations came in very handy and her home was the ideal spot to unwind after a busy day, with everything we needed for cooking and pretending that we lived there. The availability of supplies in Ménerbes provided all our needs and was a pleasant stop whether arriving by car on our way back from touring, or walking to the village from La Maisonette for a meal, a happy hour, groceries, or just the view. If we had known what we know now, we would have booked a longer stay as we were not ready to leave when the time came. We shall return!
We had a truly marvelous experience at La Petite Maisonette. It is a charming place, beautifully decorated and outfitted with everything one would need. The location is superb, walking distance to Menerbes and a short drive to other Luberon villages. We would recommend it highly!
The hilltop village of Ménerbes provides a post office, a grocery store, a café with newspaper stand, two bakeries, several restaurants, a cinema, cultural foundations, shops, art galleries, and a weekly farmers market.
It is an ideal starting point from which to explore the local Luberon vineyards, markets, lavender distilleries, and regional historical sites.
