Review 3921: Rent Our Home in Provence, L'Oustaloun
1bed/1bath apartment in Lourmarin, Provence
Oct 25-Nov 8 2008, 2 weeks
Located on a small street in the heart of the beautiful village of Lourmarin.
Everything in Lourmarin is within a two-minute walk from the apartment. There were a few cafes, many restaurants, a great wine shop and a small grocery store.
The apartment is located in a beautiful building. Everything was clean and in great condition. The apartment had a lot of character and charm. The bedroom and bath were up a short spiral staircase. The website photos are very realistic of the actual apartment.
There is a small private courtyard with a table and four chairs.
I spent two weeks in this apartment and never had a problem. There is no couch, but the chairs are comfortable. I believe the apartment was recently renovated, so it was very clean and well maintained.
The bed was very comfortable and had excellent linens and a down comforter. Everything in the bathroom area looked new. The bathroom is not separated from the bed - it is all one room.
There was a small kitchen that had everything I needed to cook my meals. I ate in the apartment many times and enjoyed shopping the local markets for the fresh ingredients and then cooking my meal at the apartment. There are two burners, one oven and a small but adequate refrigerator.
Problems or Bonuses
No surprises. This apartment was perfect for me.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
All contact with the owner (American, living in the USA) and the on site person (a local gentleman who spoke English) went fine. Very responsive, warm and friendly.
The website is very accurate and contains a lot of useful information about the apartment, Lourmarin and the area.
I paid a total of €600 for the two weeks in October/November. I felt this was a fair price for the apartment.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I would love to stay here again.
