Customer Reviews

Enjoyed Most:
The villa was beautiful and the swimming pool was outstanding. The restoration was fantastic and very authentic in the public rooms, and modern and well done in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Enjoyed Least:
While we took all of our meals in the outdoor courtyard, and they were fantastic, the outdoor tables and chairs were not of the same quality as the rest of the house. More substantial tables and chairs would be a huge improvement and would almost seem like a requirement given the overall high level of the villa. Editor's Notes: The tables and chairs have been replaced. March 2010.
Surrounding Area:
Apt is just OK other than the Saturday market, but the countryside and the other small villages are really great.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Apt was the nearest town. We never walked in. It was good for shopping and getting a late afternoon ice cream, but it was not really "charming". We preferred the smaller villages such as Bonnieux, Rossillon and Saignon.
Tips or Restaurants:
We retained the services of the Marquandt sisters who prepared our meals and did laundry and cleaning. Their meals were incredible and made it difficult for us to venture out. In Bonnieux the La Bastide de Capelongue 2 stars was truly outstanding.

Enjoyed Most:
Instead of having a fortieth wedding anniversary and seeing a lot of people for a very short time. we decided to bring together the people we are closest to, our two daughters, a son-in-law, a soon-to-be-son-in-law, and a baby grandson, in a great house in the part of the world we love best, Provence. This property made our week very special. The grounds are superb, there are lots of rooms to disappear into, two rooms to dine in beside the outdoor dining area. The owners welcomed us with enough food - tomatoes, shallots, pasta, sauces, cherries, and so on to make a meal if we needed one, and they left the place very well furnished and very well stocked. We liked the owners very much, and if we can find our way to go back, we will!
Enjoyed Least:
One of the showers is better than the other two, so we all showered in that one. There wasn't a big carving knife, so cutting a guinea hen in two to barbecue it which we did twice took some muscle. Otherwise, all our comments are not just positive, but a rave.
Surrounding Area:
The Luberon is just great. The hill villages are spectacular.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Apt is within walking distance - just.
Tips or Restaurants:
La Petite Maison in Cuceron was the best meal we had. Mernard Mathys in Apt was very good. Le Moulin in Lourmarin was good, but not two-star quality.

Enjoyed Most:
A really authentic experience. Wonderful owners who speak English. Very helpful. The house has been newly redone - very clean and sleek. The outside was still being worked on. I think we were one of the first renters. This is a great property for couples or families with older children. Kitchen is great. Everything was new and clean, and we really liked the maid service 3 times a week.
Surrounding Area:
Really liked the nearby small town, which is not a tourist town. It had an authentic feeling, which we liked. The area was great for day trips.
