Les arrivées se font le samedi à partir de 16heures et les départs ont lieu le samedi suivant avant 10h.
Property within walking distance of town with good bakery nearby.
Slight criticism is there is no shower curtain which means the floor was constantly wet and hard to keep clean.
No basics in there such as salt or pepper or cooking oil.
Sofa bed is quite noisy and not that comfortable.
Apart from this it is value for money.
I normally only give very high reviews because I go by the reviews I see before I book. Unfortunately, during our 2 week stay, we did not find this accommodation up to our expectations.
First the positive aspects:
1 Location was great for walking to the market in the town of Apt and for leaving the town to go on day trips;
2. The price was very good for what you get;
3. The back patio and wonderful garden area were superb;
and the Parking was private and very secure.
Now the negative aspects:
1.The Apartment is long and narrow with no windows except the full length window front door ;
2. The Apartment was very damp with no ventilation except by opening the front door which allowed flies and mosquitos in;
3.The only closet in the apartment at the rear, leaked water when it rained and mold was very evident;
4. The people who managed the property were very nice but spoke only english so when there was a problem with the WIFI the man did not know how to correct the problem. The lower apartment we were in used a WIFI "extender" to enhance the signal from the router located above but he did not seem to be aware of it. It worked great for 4 days then never again. If I had known where it was located a simple reboot probably would have corrected it. So if you have any problem you better speak fluent french. Our limited French was not good enough;
5. If a fire occurred and you were not in the front of the apartment it might be impossible to get out this only access/exit door;and
6. The Apartment and Patio were not very clean on our arrival. My wife and I spent the first hour cleaning the patio and apartment upper corners of dust and spider webs. The front door glass had to be cleaned both sides so we could appreciate the view of the patio and garden.
Well that's our very honest and pointed review for the time we were there.
Nous avons adoré ce petit appartement décoré avec gout, tout neuf, et très propre.On s' y sent bien comme chez soi.Nous y retournerons sans aucun doute car il est très bien placé pour découvrir le Lubéron.
Nous l'avons choisi par rapport à sa situation dans la ville d'Apt. les descriptions sont correctes. Néanmoins l'environnement "plan de cuisson" n'était pas nette (faïence, porte couteau, déflecteur de hotte). La connexion WiFi déplorable la 1ère semaine, le week-end suivant correcte et très aléatoire la semaine suivante, gros handicap pour nous. La déco est contemporaine mais le rideau de douche fait plutôt année 50. Une amélioration peut-être amenée, avoir une armoire ou placard pour ranger nos affaires et éviter de les laisser en vrac dans les valises. Si tous ces points sont améliorés je vous conseille cette location.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis et bien conseillés tout au long de notre séjour. La location correspond tout à fait à la description. Appartement très proche du centre ville tout en étant très calme, joliment décoré, bien aménagé et propre. Situé au milieu de nombreux petits village tous plus beaux les uns que les autres.Nous avons pu profiter de la terrasse couverte agréable en arrière saison.
Accueil très sympathique par les responsables des logements avec qui nous avons gardé de bons contacts pendant notre séjour.Appartement très proche du centre ville tout en étant au coeur d'un écrin de verdure ;joliment décoré et bien aménagé.Nous avons pu profiter des soirées en extérieur au calme après les visites nombreuses de toute la région.
