Our family of four stayed at Le Mourre for a week in July 2014 and could not have been happier with our stay. The location is amazingly beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice, as you can't get a sense of the scope and outlook. The property is on a hill, opposite the picturesque hilltop town of Oppede le Vieux whose abbey is lit up at night. The Luberon mountains stretch out in front of you, and as you swim in the elegant pool, you are surrounded by olive trees, the sound of cicadas and the smell of lavender. Vinyards are beneath you in the fields - a green carpet. Our unit was le Pigeonnier, and it was nicely decorated and well-equipped with a patio and a lovely view. Each gite had privacy, and the common areas were never crowded. Victorine was welcoming and knowledgeable - giving us restaurant suggestions and interesting sites to see in the area. You can walk to Oppede le Vieux in about half an hour, and it makes a lovely evening stroll to watch the sunset. The property is ideally located to see all the fascinating surrounding villages - Roussillon, Isle sur la Sorgue, Menerbes, Lacoste, Bonnieux, Gordes are all within a half-hour drive. The local markets are so diverse and delicious! The location provided the perfect combination of access to culture and history, as well as relaxation, fabulous weather and views. The beautiful memories we have will last a lifetime. I can't wait to return. Thank you, Victorine, for sharing your home!
