What a property! stayed for two weeks in this marvellous house, had no time enough to visit all places of interest, also due to the fact we wanted to stay ‘home’! Very spacious house, rooms and bathrooms are wonderful and very comfortable, lovely gardens with several areas to read, dine etc, large very nice pool and the views from everywhere are to die for! Easy walk up to the village where we found everything we needed, only went twice to one of the bigger supermarkets nearby. Great holiday, will come back!

One of the nicest house we've been to, beautifully situated with the village of Menerbes up in the back ground, we loved the large garden all around the house with the enormous old trees for natural shade and I myself loved the glassed veranda to read and write.

We had a very nice holiday, stayed often in this part of the Luberon but this time was really the best! unfortunately I had to work also but it was no problem as the house is very large so easy to find a spot to work, we cooked twice and the other evenings we walked to the village for drinks and a restaurant, all were good, next time we will stay more weeks!
