“Perfect stay in Apt”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

My parents and I spent a wonderful week at La Madone in the Appartement Baroque at the beginning of October. The owners, Nathalie and Jean-Bernard, have created a beautiful, relaxing environment at La Madone.

Our apartment had two very spacious bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, and a large, airy living/dining room. Everything is done with the attention to detail of a designer, something you don't find often in a rental apartment - beautiful, soft antique linen monogrammed sheets, curtains, table linens, antique treasures throughout the apartment. It's so charming we were happy to come back every night after a day of exploring the Luberon and spend the evening "at home" in our apartment or in the lovely garden listening to the soothing sound of the beautiful pool fountain. The bag of warm baguette and pastries hanging on the door in the morning was a special treat.

Nathalie and Jean-Bernard hosted a Wednesday evening aperitif for all of the guests. This was a great opportunity to get to know them and the other guests a bit. They are lovely hosts - always available for questions/concerns, but leaving you to enjoy the home and apartment as if it was yours for the week.

This was our second stay in Apt. We stayed at the Appartement Renaissance, located right in downtown Apt, four years ago and were equally impressed with it. We were very happy to return to one of Nathalie and Jean Bernard's beautiful apartments.

We spent almost a week in this charming apartment and loved our time there. We stayed in the "la contemporaine" apartment which was very clean and roomy, had everything we needed, had a beautifully renovated bathroom/shower, and a gorgeous view of Apt. Nathalie and Jean-Bernard were very friendly and helpful with recommendations and information; they hosted a wonderful wine and pizza evening in their beautiful garden on our last evening there which turned out to be the perfect end to our holiday. We were lucky enough to be in Apt for their market day on Saturday which was amazing! Apt is part of a beautiful cycling loop, going through 4 or 5 picturesque villages including Roussilon - there was a very reasonable, helpful bike rental shop 5 minutes walk from the apartment. We did day trips as far away as Avignon and Pont du Gard which worked out great - we loved having one home base.....and each day started with the wonderful cotton bag of warm, fresh bread/crossants/pain du chocolat!! - hanging on our doorknob! It was all very wonderful.

We had a wonderful stay in the Lin apartment in September. The apartment was even more beautiful than the photos. Great to stay 5 min walk from patisseries & delicatessens. Each day we would wander around a couple of hill towns, lunch, then head home to the lovely pool area around 4pm. Fantastic to have breakfast hung on your door every morning. I think Jean-Bernard & Nathalie have the recipe just right. Thank you for a wonderful stay. xx Maxine & John

My husband and I spent the better part of a week in Provence, traveling out each day to various sites from our lovely apartment at La Madone. We stayed in the one bedroom "Lin" apartment on the third floor overlooking the picturesque town of Apt. Our apartment had a large, well-equipped kitchen, and if we had been so inclined, we could have prepared great meals. As it was, we were thrilled to open our door in the morning to find a linen bag hanging on the handle with fresh, often warm, croissants and a baguette. The bed was comfortable, but the most unexpected luxury was the bed linen. Antique linen, crisply ironed, large soft pillows with monogrammed pillowcases, adorned the bed. The sheets were soft as a feather and unmatched by the highest thread count in today’s cottons.
Our hosts, Nathalie and Jean Bernard Masset, were welcoming and available if we had any questions, but unobtrusive otherwise. On the Wednesday night of our stay they hosted an aperitif in the garden party, and it was fun to meet the other guests and exchange stories of where we had been in our travels around Provence. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Madone, and plan on recommending it to any of our friends who travel to Provence.

When and artist and a designer goes on holiday, it is difficult to find a place that is as comfortable as the home you leave behind. La Madone is the most beautiful lodging I have ever found anywhere in my travels. croissants served at the door at 8:00am, oh my. It has a lovely pool for the end of the day.
This was my second stay and it won't be the last. Apt is in the center of the Luberon, Provence.
Close to all the hilltop towns, lavender, grapes, pumpkins, figs, Rose.
Coming to La Madone is like coming to my dream vacation spot.

Room Tip: all four are great, we have stayed In Lin, Chanve, and contemporarian

My gorgeous husband and I stayed in Apt in the middle of beautiful Provence at the beginning of Sept for a week. Our very lovely hosts Nathalie and Jean-Barnard's beautiful apartments. We stayed in the Renaissance apartment which is in the old part of town. The apartment was everything that we dreamed that our little french styled apartment would be. Right from the way it is furnished to the amazing ceiling in the bedroom. There was so much room with a lovely sitting room, dining room and a very modern kitchen with everything that you would need to whip up a little french affair. The courtyard outside was so lovely under the grape vine with the warming sun and your afternoon Pastis that lovely aperitif in hand. On Saturday was market day and when you opened the door you where stepping right out into the very lively market with the most wonderful food. We loved the apartment we stayed in and we do believe the other apartments they have to offer are just as superb talking to other guests at an informal drinks evening that was held by Nathalie & Jean-Barnard. Thank-you to you both you are such a lovely couple very warm helpful and friendly. We hope to return one day.

I've been twice in La Madone B&B in Apt, heart of La Provence. The style, tranquility, good taste and the attention of Jean Bernard and Nataly make this place the best for holidays in La Provence. From there you can go to the best towns of this beautiful place and enjoy the tranquility and the essence of France. Will go again and again!!

Room Tip: La Madone have for couples and families as modern and "antiek" room style, is fabulous! Ch...
