“Wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our stay in La loubiere was just perfect: the house was even better than it looks on the pictures: it is huge and very nice decorated!
Alec and Deb are very nice people that did their utmost to made our stay memorable: from arranging beds and highchairs for the smaller kids to providing tips on restaurants and places to go.
You should definately go here, I promise you will not regret it!

“The Best Family Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My whole family loved staying at La Loubiere. The location is terrific, many things to do on location and close by. We all spent a lot of time in the pool and the tennis court. The kids even named the horses housed nearby. The apartments were beautiful and spacious. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Provence. Alec and Deb were very helpful. They shared a lot of great information with us about the region. I recommend that everyone stay at La Loubiere. It was worth every penny! I'm hoping to return again soon.

“Wonderful family stay!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We rented all 3 gites for a week with our extensive family -- 3 couples and 15 grandchildren. It was terrific! The children, age 5 - 18, loved the swimming pool, tennis court, ping pong table, trampoline and the huge living room at La Grange. It easily accommodated 27 for dinner!
Deb and Alec are fantastic, responsive and helpful. Chef Steven Borishansky, recommended by Deb, provided more than a meal -- we had a gourmet dining experience for adults and children. Jill Sublet made a marvelous welcome dinner for our first night.
Everyone enjoyed trips to Les Baux, Cassis, Arles, Gordes, Rousillon etc etc.
Deb made reservations for my husband and me at La Cloiserie for a great Michelin star meal. All of her recommendations were fantastic.
A clothes dryer is an American amenity that would have been helpful, but that is the only suggestion we might have!
The location is convenient to shopping and motorways, but feels like a rural retreat.

“Exceptional property”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

In early May, my husband & I had the pleasure of staying at La Loubiere. What a delightful place it was. Our stay was the perfect balance between old world charm and modern conveniences. The kitchen is well equipped. We were able to prepare breakfast each morning & dinner each evening and enjoy our meals outside on the lovely patio, weather permitting. We especially enjoyed shopping at the many open air food markets that were located close to our lodging. The bathroom is large & modern.

Alex & Deb were gracious hosts. They were helpful when local information was needed. The location of La Loubiere is perfect for exploring Le Petit Luberon due to its central location. If visiting the large cities in Provence appeals to you, Aix is only a short 20 minute drive and Avignon, Arles & St. Remy are also about an hour away.
We have visited the area of Provence many times, but my husband & I agree that staying at La Loubiere was by far the most enjoyable visit. We recommend it without hesitation and hope to return soon.

“Amazing, relaxing, fantastic here's why”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in July 2013

It's been almost a year since we went. We still talk about it and dream about it. Picturesque, quiet, and everything you want as a home base in Provence. We planned day trips to Aix, Lourmarin, Bonnieux, and as far as Cassis. The owners were fanatstic and knowledgable. They new all the best local spots, and helped us out for lunch reservation at a Michelin star restaurant nearby. I bought an antique bell that now serves as our doorbell.

We stayed at the small coach house and appreciated no tv or distractions. It's good to unplug a little. Markets were easy to find and you can be as busy or lazy as you want.

We met new friends from home in Canada and Germany. Such a memorable trip. The pool, the heat, my son and daughter running and playing soccer with their new German friends. We still meet up with our France club friends regularly in Toronto. An experience for us to recall and hope for the next time we come.

Thank you.

Jonathan and Liz Beggs

“Cozy place in an enchanting countryside setting”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at "Les Platanes," which is a detached property adjacent to the main chateau. The little house was very cozy and had everything we needed (we were four adults and a small child). The common grounds were amazing! My child enjoyed playing in the swings and the trampoline, as well as looking at the nearby horses. The pool water was too cold for us, so we did not try the pool. My family enjoyed playing tennis, having BBQs, and just relaxing in the nice warm weather outside. The owners are very friendly and will make sure you have everything you need. I will only suggest that a wifi range extender be installed in the house because there was not internet connection inside the house. Otherwise, I give this property two thumbs up.
