Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Lauris. The house was very pleasant to stay, however after being back home for more than 3 weeks. We still did not receive our demage deposit of €500 back.

I have tried to contact the owner already twice but no feedback.

Really a pitty...

Beautiful villa in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 3 little children and had a perfect holiday in this fantastic house. Everything was great, the owner was friendly and provided a perfect customer service, the listing description was absolutely accurate, the house is well-equiped and very big. So wie had enough Space for our two families. The pool was also fantastic and as it was heated we could even use it when the wind gets colder. I would recommend this property to all my friends and we are thinking of coming back again next year.

A delight ; spacious and full of character.

  • 5 of 5

This place felt immediately like a home; the lovely furniture in each room contributed to that. The thick walls and the vaulted ceilings of the kitchen and living room felt substantial and containing. Very well equipped and everything worked! Nice to be able to take a walk from the house and yet close to the village for provisions. Great area to travel around visiting historic villages when it was a market day; also close enought to see Avignon, Aix and Marseille in day trips. Great to come home to a swim. We would definitely recommend the property to a friend. Back up from Larry and Cindy , the cleaner, over one or two minor things , was fast and helpful.

Loved the unique La Table de Margot in Lauris....great patron.

The fort at Boux was the favourite expedition for us. We didn't find the walking maps accurate and thought the big stoney walking routes soulless in comparison with UK footpaths. But then we didn't try to do the 'sentiers' as we didn't trust the maps!

Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Just back from two weeks at 'Roumanille' in the heart of the beautiful Provence countryside. This had been a last minute surprise for for me as my son and his wife had planned it months ago but kept it a surprise from me until 2 weeks prior to departure, and what a surprise !! A beautiful old stone farmhouse, full of character and history yet equipped with top of the range facilities to keep the most demanding visitors happy.Although we were a party of 8 adults and 2 children aged 3 and 11 months there was plenty of space inside and out not to feel cramped. The 3 year old was particularly delighted to be held up to pick the grapes on the terrace as well as frolicking in the heated pool with her baby sister and family. Surroundings and views are lovely and so quiet and peaceful. A five minute drive in the morning took you into Lauris for freshly baked bread and the superb produce of the market. A further five minutes drive took you to the Super U, an excellent well stocked supermarket. On arrival the beds were all made up and there was an abundance of towels etc plus everything was spotlessly clean and manager speedily replied to our e mail when we had a query. The venue is within easy driving distance of some the pretty walled hilltop villages and towns and the Chateau in Lauris has a spectacular roof top terrace restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely meal. All in all it was a fantastic family holiday which I thoroughly recommend and would certainly return to. Liz Dickinson

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay in this lovely villa. It is full of character, very spacious and with excellent up to date kitchen and bathrooms. Fantastic views across the Valley of the Durance to hills beyond! Wonderful how the light was always changing.

We found it a great base for exploring the Luberon with its fascinating hill villages, each of which seems to have a very good restaurant. We particularly recommend the Friday morning market in Lourmarin and drinks on the terrace at the Chateau in Lauris with its far reaching views. David provided a very informative and helpful guide + directions from and to the airport.

Many thanks to David and Larry for a truly enjoyable holiday from the Asher Family
