    Overall: We are VERY tempted to re-book for next year. Enjoyed Most: The location was everything. We were able to be tourists but came home to a typical Provence village without tourists. Enjoyed Least: There were 6 of us. The bathroom without a shower curtain made getting ready a bit of a dance. Surrounding Area: Being able to walk to the grocery, butcher, patisserie and restaurant and still feel very secluded. Nearby Events or Locales: I honestly do not recall the name of the closest town as we did not attempt to walk outside of our village. We rented a car and drove to villages and cities. Tips or Restaurants: The restaurant in the village was lovely! We dined there twice. Most everything anyone would want is available within walking distance. Directions: Do know some French! Mr. Truc, the owner, has very limited English. We did study conversational French, food etc I should have reviewed phrases to help with directions and housing concerns. Check In Out: Mr. Truc wanted us to follow him in our car. The streets are narrow with hidden turns so we had to pay close attention.

  • Lovely hideout in the Luberon
    5 of 5

    I came here on a longer trip in the spring with two agendas, to explore Provence and to have a quiet spot to relax and do some writing -- and the gite proved fantastic for both purposes. The beds were comfortable, the room airy and light, the kitchen and bathroom clean and well equipped. It has a lovely south-facing stone terrace that I enjoyed sitting on day or night for dinner, well shielded even from the terrific Mistral winds. It's on a working farm, so there can be a little noise as the roosters crow or people work the fields, so if you're looking for dead silence this isn't the place; but I found it comforting in a way. Plus the owners gave me fresh eggs and honey and vegetables from time to time, which was definitely welcome, along with a sack of scented herbs to take home in my luggage. The area has a ton of great paths for walking and exploring the small villages of the Luberon, along with some good things to do nearby; I hiked the falaise above the village of Lioux, the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is worth seeing, and there are some good restauarants in the area -- I enjoyed L'Estellan, and Le Mistral in L'Isle-sur-Sorgue. It's also not far from Avignon, Arles, Nimes, Aix-en-Provence -- check out the Carrières de Lumières for a real unique treat. I was sad to have to leave!
