My husband and I stayed at this B&B in October during our honeymoon trip to Europe. Michelle and Sylvain were fantastic hosts and they were very welcoming. The B&B was very comfortable and had a romantic feel to it. Perfect for couples on honeymoon. We were very happy with the accommodation and will definitely return in the future. The only... More

Stayed at this B and B for 4 nights, on 2 levels, just off the main Luberon road 6 km from Gordes; has 5 rooms. Built in the 17th century and 110 euro/night includes breakfast. Quite expensive compared to the mas we stayed at in St Remy, furnishings and quality of fittings were both superior at that establishment which was... More

I wholly recommend Michelle and Sylvain's B&B! My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights, and we felt extremely welcomed by the hosts and loved our entire experience! The house itself is absolutely gorgeous and nestled in a peaceful village of Les Beaumettes. It allows for easy access by car/bike to all the neighboring Lubernon villages (which Michelle provided...

We were so happy with the warm welcome we received here. The building and outdoor areas are just beautiful. They were so welcoming to our two young children, who thoroughly enjoyed stalking the cat and the tiny lizards. The breakfast was, hands down, the best we had on our 4-week European vacation. Just perfect in every way. The room was... More

First of all, thank you Michelle and Sylvain for making our stay in Provence so special! We stayed at Au Ralenti du Lierre for 7 nights and left it wishing to have stayed for longer. I will try to explain why: 1. Breakfast at this place is fantastic: seasonal fruits (we had amazing cherries among them), juices, yougurt made by... More

This place is absolutely wonderful. We have stayed here for 6 nights using it as a base as we cycled round the local area and found an utter paradise. It's a beautiful building with large stone steps leading to the pool and terrace and then further up towards our room. If you like peace and tranquility, the most beautiful surroundings,... More

My wife and I enjoyed our 50th birthdays traveling through France, including a 3 night stay at Michelle and Sylain's wonderful B&B under the cliffs of Les Beaumettes. Quaint, charming and romantic spot. Perfect launching point centrally located and easy access to all of the small villages in the Luberon. As others have stated, the breakfast was fantastic - fresh... More

We had a fantastic night at this b&b while touring the wineries of the the luberon. We were greeted warmly and the pool felt great! The breakfast was great right outside our three person room. Very comfortable beds, great bathroom and just the general feel of the whole place was great!

Thank you thank you Michelle and Sylvain! How did you know that the smell of baking would make us fall in love with Au Ralenti du Lierre instantly? You were both so generous and kind, and so forgiving of our stumbling French (oh, we wish we were fluent!) Our bed was the most comfortable in our 5 weeks in Europe!... More
