This lovely apartment for two is within the owners’ house but has its own private access. Inside, seaside simplicity and style are the keywords, all softly done in natural materials, duck-egg and taupe fabrics, driftwood lamps and fish-shaped hooks – the Lubéron hills on your doorstep are stunning. You have your own private terrace: you are virtually sitting in that fabulous landscape beneath the dappled sun. The kitchen/living room is well-equipped and perfect for two, the high-quality bedding is new, your hosts delightful. Guylaine is an artist and Franck is a business consultant, harvesting his own olives, extracting essential oil from his lavender plants and producing honey from his beehives. You might see other guests from the apartment for two upstairs, or the one for four on the other side of the house but as this is a place for adults, it’s wonderfully tranquil. You could just laze the days away by the shared lavender-lined pool, go wine-tasting at local vineyards, explore famous villages such as Gordes, Rousillon, Bonnieux, Loumarin and lovely, lively Aix en Provence with its cathedral, galleries and bookshops, less than 30km away. The pretty seaside town of Cassis and its celebrated limestone calanques are only an hour’s drive.
