"Perfect stay in the Luberon"
We just finished a wonderful vacation in Cucuron and I cannot say enough good things about our stay. For starters, Stella was the perfect host! I am a track athlete and Stella went out of her way to reserve a track for my training sessions, as well as sending a trail map of the area. Moreover, she greeted us with a lovely treat of locally made olive oil and vinegar, and was basically an amazing resource.
As for the house, it's incredible. Built into the wall of Cucuron, it is an amazing mix of old and new. Everything inside has been recently remodeled, so the home came equipped with every amenity. The views out the windows were gorgeous and the town was only steps away. We loved how we were close enough to walk to the bakery or the town square, but we still felt removed from the hustle and bustle of a busier town.
The Luberon itself is gorgeous and tranquil. The people are extremely kind and it was really such a lovely vacation. If you have the good fortune to stay at this vacation rental, consider yourself lucky and get ready for a wonderful experience!

"Perfect accommodations in a charming village"
My husband, daughter and son-in-law spent one week at Les Galets.
Stella was an amazing hostess. She was very responsive to our email queries and went out of her way to make sure our questions were answered before our arrival.
Her home is beautiful. It is situated in the ramparts of Cucuron so it has the feel of an ancient building but the interior has been fully and beautifully renovated into a three level home with all of the amenities. The decor and furnishings are clean, clutter free and tastefully done.
Cucuron was a perfect location for us. It is a small and very charming village that provides an "old world" experience which is exactly what we were looking for. All of the conveniences are available within walking distance which allowed us to experience and enjoy the Luberon lifestyle. The village is also centrally located and situated close enough to larger towns so that we didn't need to drive too far to explore the Luberon region.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Les Galets without hesitation.
It was a real pleasure meeting you and having you as guests. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
