Le Domaine Saint Jean
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stayed 4 nights at the beginning of October 2013, with my wife & 3 daughters, occupying the Montmorency and Burlat rooms, located one above the other in the same building, which proved a convenient arrangement for the family; what can we say - Eric and Thea simply have it! charming in character as well as in style (and this refers to both the Domaine and its owners), their abode in Provence sits right smack in the middle of the Luberon, providing an easy access to many pearls of the area and environs; rooms are good size and very nicely appointed (if on the minimalist side); each day we took out in the morning for a reasonable drive to Menerbes; St. Remy, including Glanum and the Carrierre de Lumiere spectacle (highly recommended); Rousillon; Fontaine de Vaucluse; Gordes etc.; and if we got back before sunset: enjoyed a quiet reading by the pool; thanks Eric & Thea for all your kindness and hospitality!

部屋は非常に広く快適に過ごせました。周りに何もない農場の中に立っている農家の家に宿泊する感じです。少しホテルは見つけにくいですが、それも4部屋しかないホテルの特別さという感じで問題なし。オーナーの女性と娘は英語がペラペラで、田舎の小さなホテルですが何も苦労することなく快適に過ごすことができました。朝食も自分達の時間に合わせて出してくれるため、ゆっくりと田舎の朝の空気を満喫することができました。

It was really comfortable stay. It was located in the farm and It is like staying at farmhouse not at the hotel. It is a bit difficult to find out this hotel, but this makes us feel special of staying at this hotel. The owner and daughter spoke English fluently. So, we could stay without any problem. They served the breakfast based on our request. We could feel the coutryside relaxing stay.

It's always nice to come across a chambre d'hôtes that has recently opened for business, as the owners are fresh and ready to really cater to their clients' needs. And this is the case with the Domaine Saint Jean (opened at the end of June 2012).

The other advantage is that the rooms in this lovely refurbished farmhouse are recently renovated and have been decorated with a great deal of taste, yet without coming across as snobby chic. This is not surprising since Eric, the owner, is an antiques dealer at L'lsle sur la Sorgue, one of the major sites in France for finding loads of antiques. Here then is another advantage : Eric can give you advice on where to look for antiques!

Back to the rooms: we were 3 in "la chambre Burlat" which was huge and looks out over a very nice courtyard. All the rooms in this B&B look really nicely done, but if I had had my choice, I would have gone for one of the "gîtes" or independant apartments. Really, for this posh area, I don't think you'll find a better deal. (For example, a very stylish apartment for 4 people at only 700€ per week in high season.)

Both the chambre d'hôtes and the gîtes have everything you need. The pool in particuliar is very modern and overlooks the valley and hills. (Do see their website for pictures of all this!).

Thea, the other owner, is British, but speaks perfect French as well. Her husband is French. I especially appreciated their down-to-earth friendliness. (Again, this is Peter Mayle territory and can be a bit on the snobby side - See the village of Gordes for example!) Although I wasn't able to do this, I imagine that it would be an interesting evening to do the table d'hôtes with them. Thea also gives great advice about places to visit off the beaten track.

Another advantage for this chambre d'hôtes is that it is located outside of Saint Saturnin les Apt, one of the less touristy villages. Finding le Domaine Saint Jean is not easy, and it could benefit from at least a sign on the road to indicate where it's at. (Thea came to meet us and led us to the house.) However, from what I understand, the lack of signage is because the owners want to preserve the natural charm of the area.

Overall, this is a great choice for the region....
