About Amanda Lakin

We live mainly in the country in Sussex. My husband is a production designer and Fireworks technician. He was responsible for the Queens Jubilee display . He was also winner of the Cannes fireworks.

I have several properties in the UK, which I manage.

My husband was trained as an architect and now has his own event production business

My parents built the house 40 years ago, as a holiday house and we have all been there every year since.

Our children were brought up from babyhood with holidays at the house and now return with their own friends.

Amanda Lakin purchased this house in 1972

Why Amanda Lakin chose Luberon

We inherited the property from my parents approximately 10 years ago. they built the house having fallen in love with the area while staying with friends.

They love the food and the beautiful mountain villages.

What makes this house unique

The house is very peaceful and very easy to manage with stone floors throughout.

Quiet Comfort

Lovely house in a great location. A real home.

Sensational kitchen.... equipped to perfection. My wife made coq au vin for the first time. Quiet and comfortable. Would love to come back with better weather to enjoy the plentiful outdoor features; then perfect would be redefined Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic house with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

After many years of renting properties in Provence, we felt this was one of the best we have ever stayed in. It is a lovely house with two outdoor areas in which to eat (one is covered and sheltered, the other more open), both with fantastic views. The pool is beautiful and the water warmed by the sun so that the pool is really easy to get into however hot it is outside. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything worked well. I like having mesh over the windows to keep the bugs out and the downstairs bedroom was lovely and cool. We loved it and would definitely book it again.

Excellent getaway destination

  • 5 of 5

Fontcaudette met or exceeded all that we had hoped for in a short holiday getaway. It's a beautiful home with all the amenities one could want. And the location was ideal for our needs, with easy access to many of the sights in the region. We would not hesitate to return.
