The Gite is in a beautiful location, with amazing views of the Luberon Hills. It is equipped with everything you need & is spotlessly clean & comfortable. It is a very pretty short walk to the delightful village, which has lots of amenities including two very good boulangeries. David & Karen are excellent hosts, who are always willing to share their vast knowledge of the area with you. The best villages/towns etc, & best places to eat, of which there are many! There are numerous wonderful places to visit, so it is good to catch over aperos around the lovely pool early evening. We have booked once again for 2018!
A perfect spot for visiting Provence's many beautiful villages and towns. Nothing is left to chance in this beautiful and well equipped gite. Friendly hosts who provide helpful and informed advice on places to eat and visit.
This was our sixth year staying at this property, which says a lot. Lovely property with spectacular pool and views of the Luberon. Just outside of little St. saturnin, which is less touristy than many of the nearby villages. Lots of excellent restaurants nearby and the kitchen and outside grill and patio make cooking fun and easy. Lots of great food markets every day, so shopping is part of the experience. Hosts, David and Karen, host aperitifs each evening at the pool, and will gladly book dinner reservations.
This is our third visit, although this time we stayed at the chambre du Platane which is a B&B room next to the 2 gites. I knew what to expect as the other 2 gites Les Oliviers and Les Cerisiers were perfect. We were spoilt really! Delicious and copious breakfast of croissants, fresh bread, home made jam, fruit and yogurt. We wanted to have a complete break from cooking so chose b&b this year. But there is a fridge in the room, so if you've had a big lunch, and you only need a little snack in the evening, this is perfect. Beautiful views from the terrace, locally made olive oil shower gel, there is nothing missing. Just another few more weeks or holidays. I recommend you book early as they get booked up in advance. Karen and David and always helpful with tips for the area and discover new places to eat every year. We will be back I'm sure.
We recently returned from one week at David and Karen's wonderful property and are already scheming for our next stay in the Luberon.
The apartment we rented, Les Cerises, was spacious, cozy and had everything we needed from a full kitchen to a lovely sitting area and terrace. The property is indeed a pleasant 10 minute walk to the village which makes it very convenient to pick up fresh bread in the mornings or an easy stroll to dinner in the evenings.
David and Karen are fantastic hosts, always available to provide tips on local sights, or more importantly, reservations for nearby restaurants. We quickly realized the need to book ahead (lunch and dinner typically) and David was extremely helpful in securing us reservations on relative short notice at some of the region's best restaurants.
We also loved gathering with our hosts and fellow travelers (never more than six total guests) around the pool in the early evening for an apero to chat about what we did that day, where we ate etc.
I should mention that the view from our apartment, and the wonderful pool, is incredible and was everything and more that we were hoping for when it came to a week in Provence. We definitely hope to return!
