This house is perfect for 3 couples. Completely updated, beautifully appointed and... location, location, location.
The question is... do you want to stay in a town or stay in a country villa? We chose country villa and this one is perfect. It's location is squarely in the Luberon Valley, tucked away in a very small hamlet of perhaps a half dozen other homes. The views are stunning. Stars at night and a wispy, paisley and an almost impressionists version of dawn. Stunning. Then - easy day trips using our Villa as a "hub" and the towns as "spokes"... so many charming Provencal towns within 20-30 minutes it's impossible to count. And, then home for a refreshing, late afternoon swim.
The cottage itself? It's everything as advertised. Modern kitchen and bathrooms. But, each room is absolutely charming with unique and classic styling for a Provencal setting.
Marie, the owner, is a charming person to communicate with leading up to and while at the cottage. And, Dominique met us at the beginning and ending to provide the keys and an overview - also, charming - 3 kisses on the check!
After several visits to Provence in the southern region around Arles, this place and the Luberon Valley has positively changed my Provence experience forever! Thank you, Marie!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Xavier and Amparo’s country cottage. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and our hosts were very helpful with answering any questions we had. We also loved their funny and friendly dog Duke, the Fox Terrier. The cottage has been restored beautifully and sits in a lovely peaceful and quiet garden. The location is wonderful for exploring the Luberon area of Provence and we had many wonderful drives to charming towns and villages. The tiny village of Viens is just up the road and Apt is only 12 km away if you need to go to the market or do some shopping. We missed the lavender bloom but it must be spectacular in season, it had all just been harvested. Would love to return to this peaceful home away from home.
