Villa Rimayon is a spotless, spacious, beautifully renovated holiday home with restful decor and plenty of character. The kitchen is excellent, well-equipped, and well placed for outdoor entertaining. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms well appointed. The garden is charming and full of wildlife - birds, butterflies etc. There are many areas outside to enjoy a glass of wine and the views: the main terrace near the pool, the lawn, the front of the house under giant trees, or the charming herb garden to name a few. Although close to the town of Apt - which is very convenient - the property is peaceful and there is little, if any, noise from the surrounding area. The house is well mantained and thoroughly cleaned. There is a local contact available for advice, or should any problems occur. Highly recommended property. We enjoyed the perfect family holiday here.
No doubt one of the best locations in the Luberon! The villa offers everything to enjoy a superb holiday with the family and/or friends. The infrastructure that is offered is top and sufficient to host 14 people comfortable. The view of Apt is breathtaking.
Our extended family from the US and Europe spent a magical week in this beautiful home. The house was not only perfect to explore the lovely neighboring villages of Saignon, Roussillon, Gordes, etc., but also to soak in the charm of this beautiful region at the house itself. The property has been lovingly restored, with equal attention directed at style and comfort, and the gardens are absolutely enchanting. The memories of lazy summer days spent by the pool, at the various seating areas surrounding the house, and playing table tennis with the kids will linger for a very long time. The house itself was well-stocked and impeccable. The experience of booking the rental, making arrangements, and getting into the house was seamless. The caretakers were easy to reach and always responsive to all our questions. We recommend this house highly and we ourselves look forward to returning soon.
