Ronald (Bastide 1830)

The reviews of this property are perfectly accurate. The house is in great repair, the property magnificent and the care and attention of Brigitte amazing. We loved our week stay on the Luberon.

Jonathan (Mas des Lavandes)

A real gem in the heart of Provence ! This gîte is absolutely stunning with its secluded location overlooking the majestic mountains and the sound of nature immersing the charming house and its terrace. Add to the a smartly designed living split on two floors, well equipped kitchen where one can prepare dishes from the findings on the local markets and beautiful swimming pool and you have a paradisiaque that is La Bastidonne! Enjoy the good life!

Inge (Mas du Luberon)

An excellent place to relax and visit the Lubéron. We spent a very pleasant week at the Mas du Luberon. The house has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is very well equipped: excellent WIFI connection; good kitchen and bathroom; well working fire place; very nice terrace. The location is perfect for a visit by car to the Lubéron in all directions. The site itself is calm and green, so you can easily stay on the spot to read and relax. It was too cold for us to swim but the swimming pool looks very nice.

Gillian (Mas des Lavandes)

Lovely, comfortable house in beautiful surroundings . Mas des Lavandes is a charming, comfortable and well equipped holiday home in a picturesque and peaceful location. There are fantastic views from almost every window. We spent a really enjoyable 5 nights there over the October school holidays. There are plenty of beautiful places to visit nearby and the house is an ideal place for exploring the stunning Luberon region. Although the pool was a little too cold to swim in due the fact it was late October, we enjoyed the Badminton court. The village of Cereste is just a very short drive away and has supermarkets, a butchers and on some evenings, a handy pizza van. Brigitte was a delightful and friendly host.

Perfect base camp for climbers. Beautiful and rustic house reasonably close to the climbing in Buoux and Lourmarin.

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.

Sara (Mas du Luberon)

Bridgitte and her beautiful property are what makes AirBNB such a wonderful opportunity. My family uses the service all the time and we have done so in many countries— but this is our single favorite stay, ever. First, consider the hospitality: we were quite late to check-in due to a missed train. She treated us kindly and came out in the pouring rain with an umbrella to meet and guide us into the cottage. Then she wisely left us to sleep, rather than put us through the tour immediately. In addition, when my kids found the main pool too cold, she allowed us to use another typically reserved for other guests. When I could not work the stove properly and we had issues with the internet, she and her husband arrived within minutes to assist! She also offered excellent restaurant advice, and was curious and caring without being intrusive. She even offered the services of her daughter to help our kids with swimming! The property is a dream come true. Stunning views of the Luberon, beautiful flowers and fragrant vines everywhere. You can dine al fresco, play pétanque at sunset, swim til your heart’s content— and cool in a well-equipped kitchen that even includes little luxuries like a Le Crueset braiser. The towns of Cereste and Reillane nearby are sweet and both have good restaurants. Plus Scaramouche in Cereste is amazing ice cream! Apt isn’t far and offers a good market. We day tripped to Aix, Arles, Iles de Sorgue, and on and on. Exhausted, we slept well on the beds and did laundry, hanging things on the nearby line. This is the perfect property and so well priced. If I had friends or family to travel with, I would rent 2 or 3 of the cottages on the property and allow us to be together while having our own space. I might bring along my favorite knife to help with cooking, as those there were not wonderful. Also, it would be lovely to have a fan for use in the upstairs bedroom in summer, and maybe window screens as my kids were frightened of the bees and such that came in with opened windows (but this is the country and to be expected). Be sure to ask for a little tour to understand where to take out the garbage and how to work the stove if you’re American- those things are quite different here. Bottom line: we didn’t want to leave. If Brigette would have us, we would have stayed for years!

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
