This was our fourth annual visit. This is an excellent, well maintained property in a central location for getting around the area. The owners are very accommodating and available if necessary. The property is private, with large outdoor areas. Highly recommend.
This is our fourth visit and we would come back again.
Lovely property, in a central location. Very well maintained. Laurie is an excellent owner, who is always available. Instructions and helpful information are in English which is very useful. Overall we had a five star two week vacation.
Lovely house, fully loaded!
This comfortable house, clean house was loaded with everything you could ask for in a self-catering property, from inflatable pool toys to portable room fans to every cooking utensil you could think of to bee repellent around the pool. There is plenty of room, inside and out, with your choice of two terraces to dine on. The kitchen will impress anyone who is into cooking, with plenty of instructions on how to work everything. Wi-fi works well throughout the house, even in the upstairs bedrooms.
The house is located high in the hills around Apt, with spectacular views, though it can get a little tricky finding the house again once you leave for the day. Keep the directions in your car! The location is perfect for visiting the famous Luberon hill towns such as Rousillon, Bonnieux and Lourmarin. Apt is a good size, with plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, services and a big market on Saturday mornings. It's not as quaint as some of the nearby charming little towns but has everything you need.
The pool is heated and well maintained; we saw the pool cleaner twice during the week we there.
The housekeeper, Arlette, lives nearby and was most helpful. In fact, on the first night we arrived we asked her to prepare a simple meal, which she did and was paid extra for.
All in all a relaxing stay in a comfortable house with great views.
Thank you! Merci! So glad you enjoyed your visit. Please come again.
A real taste of French life
We spent a fantastic week in this beautiful farmhouse in July and did not want for anything. The fully equipt kitchen allowed us to share many meals together and we found the shopping in the local town of Apt amazing. The Lavender festival was in full swing and the people we met were very friendly even though we did not speak French. We visited the near by towns of Gordes, Roussillon, and Sault - all definitely worth a visit. It's also not far from Aix en Provence where we had lunch at Villa Gallici.
Laurie and Arlene were very helpful and provided everything we asked for. The property was clean with a well maintained swimming pool and lovely gardens. I have already made our holiday slideshow and we would highly recommend this experience to friends and family
Thank you so much. Please come again!
Great house with fantastic views
This was our fourth stay and we recommend this lovely house for all its comforts, views and easy access to the nearby sights . A stay here leaves you delighted with the simple pleasures of life that typify France . Always a joy to return to this peaceful tranquil house that revives and rejuvenates the soul !
We discovered this gem through a recommendation and were pleasantly surprised how idylicc the loacation and facilities are. One cannot want for anything and the proprietor has thought of every eventuality to ensure the complete comfort of the holidaymakers. Our large group thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the surrounding landscaped gardens. The covered terrace was a witness to sumptious culinary creations from the fresh produce available locally. The grand facilities offered will remain etched foreverin our hearts. we will certainly be visiting again.
Thank you so much for your great review. We look forward to welcoming you again at Chez Manon.
