Some of our last review :
Jordan (Mas de L’Olivier – 1 bedroom)
We absolutely loved our stay here!! So peaceful and restful. The pool area with the view is incredible. So quiet with breathtaking views and sunshine, with a huge swimming pool to cool off in. The accommodation is great, and has everything you need. Brigitte is a wonderful host who chatted us through a local map and pointed out the best places to visit, with a list of recommended restaurants as well as a weekly schedule of all the local markets. Also very quick to respond to questions we had. We really appreciated this as would have struggled to find this information ourselves! The accommodation is great, with a good en-suite bedroom and comfy beds. Good location in the Luberon hills, with beautiful villages a short drive away. Would definitely recommend and will be sure to come back ourselves!
Kay (Mas de L’Olivier – 1 bedroom)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bridgette’s gite. It was a home away from home, so peaceful and beautiful. The house was well equipped and the bed upstairs was super comfy. Huge bathroom, great kitchen and living space. Bridgette had plenty of information on hand of the area and place to see and things to do. The pool was fabulous and the view to the mountain is beautiful. We explored many villages from here and went to a great market. Bridgette is a lovely lady, a great communicator and a fabulous host. We would highly recommend staying in this peaceful oasis.
Fiona (La bastide 1830 – 2 bedrooms)
We had a last minute change of plans and were fortunate to find this lovely gite where we spent a very happy week in the sun lazing around our private pool in this quiet and beautiful area. Brigitte and Jean Louis were the perfect hosts who were able to answer our many questions in English as unfortunately our French is not up to scratch! They were unobtrusive but always on hand if we needed anything. The accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything needed to live comfortably. Many thanks!
Nikki (Mas des Lavandes)
Beautiful place to stay. Would highly recommend it as a perfect base for exploring or just staying in the valley.
Mathias (Mas des Lavandes)
We had a great time at Brigitte’s house, a true gem in the Provence, quietly located, with an amazing view of the Luberon. The pool was an excellent distraction in the heat and we also enjoyed the shade on the house’s porch. The house is nicely located for trips west into the deeper Provence. We enjoyed Bonnieux and and the markets in Apt. There are some great fruit and vegetable stalls along the roads so fresh veggies are always at hand. Brigitte greeted us warmly and was helpful throughout our stay with local tips. We’d definitely come and stay here again!
Spencer (Bastide 1830 – 2 bedrooms)
It’s sounds cliched to write « our hosts were so welcoming », however, this is simply the case, l have not stayed at a more hospitable place. Brigitte and Jean-Louis are just great people that clearly enjoy life and helping people experience a great holiday. The property has stunning views for your morning coffee or evening wine. It’s also within driving distance from some amazing towns like lourmarin and Gordes. The house is very peaceful due to its location. Having a car I feel is a must. There is a nice pool on the property too. Cereste is a quiet town (very quiet) but Apt is about 15 mins away for groceries etc. There is a smaller supermarket in cereste so you won’t go without Brigitte is super quick to respond to help with anything you need. Recommend and would go back without question.

A beautiful location. The view from the terrace is really special and the garden and pool are perfect for family fun. Brigitte was a lovely host and the cottage had everything we needed. Merci!
Jane (Mas des Lavandes)
A perfect getaway for us and our 8 week old daughter. Very kind hosts and a stylish and homely house. Great views and walks. Ideal for our 2 nights. Cot and baby bath provided. Upstairs we pushed single beds together for us and she slept in mezzanine sofa bed room across the corridor so we weren’t on different floors, if with a baby monitor or a louder child, downstairs would have been fine for us, equally good if she was meant to be in the same room.
Bathelle (Mas du Luberon)
Great communication, house well designed, minimal and yet feels like home, real provence experience. Brigitte was so lovely and welcoming, provided everything we needed and beyond. I would definitely recommend and wish to return some day
This was the perfect spot to start daily adventures and also relax for the day/evening. Gorgeous setting and a beautifully designed space. Highly recommended.
