“Charming Artist's cottage”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Wonderful little hideaway in the storybook Provencal village of Cucuron. The previous reviewer described it perfectly...white washed stone walls and ceilings, challenging staircase and an adorable hand painted trompe l' oeil mini-bedroom. Roomy, fully functional kitchen/dining/living area upstairs, bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen has a wonderful little balcony with THE BEST view of the countryside. The owners are friendly and respond quickly to correspondence. Be sur to read the big scrapbooks in the bookcase upstairs...wonderful story of the artist family that purchased this little jewel of a home.

Why only 4 stars? Partially our fault...when we arrived it was dark, but I'm afraid the directions were not clear for us. The door was to be found by a "garden gate". It was more of a big fence blocking the end of the alley, no gate. The ancient alleyways/roads are not readily marked and difficult to see in the dark. Where to park and where to walk and make turns were difficult to understand. Please don't try to arrive in the dark!
The second reason for 4 stars is that when we opened the door to the cottage we were greeted by a sour smelling damp mop and bucket! The smell permeated throughout the lower floor. We quickly stored it away and opened some windows and all was well. There were some other utilitarian items piled in an open area under the stairs that was unsightly.
but overall...loved this place! Would recommend it highly as my "complaints" are minor and not entirely the owner's fault.

“Full of character and a great place to spend a week or two”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The cottage was all we had hoped for. The photos give a good impression of it. The bottom floor is really interesting with a domed, whitewashed stone roof over the main bedroom which has one of the most comfortable and roomy beds we have ever experienced in a holiday rental. There is a small bedroom leading off the main one that any child would just love to be in. It's like a snug little cave with walls all covered with colourful and beautifully painted murals.

The stone steps leading up to the kitchen and living area were a bit of a challenge for my wife whose hip is a bit dodgy and they would not suit someone with really bad legs but she coped ok. The kitchen is adequately equipped and the small outdoor area leading from the kitchen is great for sitting out and enjoying the weather of Provence.

I thoroughly recommend this holiday home for couples or for couples with one child who want a really interesting place to spend their holiday. The cottage is not luxurious. It's not that sort of cottage. But it is beautifully authentic, tucked away in one of the corners of a Provencal village full of character. We loved the week we spent here.

I should also say that the owners were really great to deal with. Very prompt to reply to emails. Very efficient. Giving lots of good advice and excellent directions on how to find the flat and get into it on the first day

“A perfect stay”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My daughter and I were looking for a quiet village as a base for exploring the Luberon region and Cucuron was a perfect location. We loved the village; it is small enough to be fairly peaceful but still had most of what we needed. Every morning we had coffee by the small pond before starting our travels, excepts market day when we simpy didn't want to leave the town. The pizza truck on the weekends is a must, and the owner especially charming.
The house was exactly as described and the owners provided us with all the information we needed before we arrived including directions, how everything worked, what was available in the town, and nearby attractions, which was very helpful.
We loved the little house and it quickly became our home away from home. It was cool for sleeping and there is a lovely breeze through the upstairs windows. The balcony does not have much of a view but it is very private and peaceful. The stairs are a bit of a challenge, but also added to the character. We loved having the wifi to keep in touch with family while we were away. All in all, it was a perfect vacation.

“A nice little house in a nice little town"”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our week in early September in "Le Point". The house was honestly represented by the owner and we found no surprises. Both my wife and I are in our mid-70's and the well documented "stairs to the second level" were a challenge. I believe a sturdy, add-on railing on the open side of the stairs would not detract from the authentic look of the room and would provide a needed security for everyone, young and old. Cucuron is a nice little town, not over-run with tourists, with plenty of fun restaurants and all the necessities. A great base for side trips in Provence. Le Point is very reasonably priced and a good value.

“a charming, peaceful place which met all our expectations”

people found this review helpful

The cottage was a restful hideaway that made us feel part of the village life rather than tourists.It was very well equipped,private and cosy.The evenings sitting out on the upstairs terrace with the view of the trees were idyllic.
All the shops needed were nearby.
We found it easier to park in the white parking areas beyond Spar and "The Etang" which avoids negotiating the narrow streets of the village.We ate at The Etang restaurant next to the hotel which I would recommend.
Iwould definitely stay here again.It is easy to visit all the interesting sites of the Luberon from Cucuron and this village has few tourists.

“A SPECIAL PLACE WITH SOUL”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed at le Point during 29th June and 6th July 2013. We are a family of four, my husband, two teenage daughters, and myself. Le Point is situated at the end of the impasse. Everything was so, as it was presented on the Internet.
The owner provided all necessary information prior to departure, including where to purchase food on the way from the airport to Cucuron late in the evening.
Not to exaggerate, but the house does have a soul, and does not leave you indifferent. There are all the appliancesavailable that you need to prepare meals in the kitchen. Everything is clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable, pillows were just right.
The bathroom is spacious and clean.
There are books and travel guides of Provence. There is everything you need for a pleasant stay on vacation. The stairs are really steep, but even these have their own charm and without those steep stairs the flat would not be what it is.
As for the two bells in the village - the first day or two is a bit disturbing, but you get used to it quickly and it does not bother you anymore. It is not as bad as we imagined before we came.
We parked the car every evening next to the tennis courts at the bottom of the village and we took a shortcut between streets and needed ca. 4 minutes to the flat.
Villages in Provence are unique, especially Lourmarin. Gorde is fine but far too many tourists. We encoutered the most beautiful lavender fields on isolated plateaus and hills, we got there driving on some very narrow roads, just exploring around. The commercialized lavender fields such as Abbaye Senanque were far less attractive and litterally packed with tourists.
We would definetely recommend the stay at le Point to anyone who has a bit of "good spirit" and enjoys life as it comes.
