, photo by


July 2006, 1 week


Located in the lavender Country near a small town in Provence, France called Banon. It is just located in the middle of a very private lavender field. Simply an spectucular setting during the high season of lavender.

Nearby Amenities

Could be walking distance to the town but as easy as you have to walk through the curvy and narrow but picturesque road. Very easy and quick drive by car which you will need any way to explore the beautiful Luberon region in France.

The House/Apartment

Historical building recently restored to host modern ammenities. Very peaceful and quite. Easy layout for all the guests to be either very private or social. The house is also known as La Flachere.


Fantastic view from every area of the beautifully manicured garden. Great pool area with pool house. An fantastic and brand new tennis court. A plus for a tennis enthusiast group.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Excellent conditions!


Everything was in pristine conditions. The decor was just a very high standard hotel. Everyone was fascinated by the high level of standards.


Kitchen was in excellent conditions and well equipped. However, all the cooking was done by the in-house chef so we really did not worry about anything!

Problems or Bonuses

Only a bit fo an issue using the laundry by the guests. However, it was solved rather quick.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Excellent and very professional treatment.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?


Things to do in this area

Plenty to do in this magnificent Luberon region and Colorado Provencal.
