We spent a wonderful week here in the spring of 2012. The cottage itself was comfortable and made a great base from which to explore this wonderful area. Access was easy and a morning walk around the gounds is a must. There was ample information about the area at the cottage and the fire at night made it a very homely. The Luberon Valley was a delight. So many brilliant villages, markets and naturally beautiful spots that we will definitely have to return in the near future to do it justice!
