Our 12 days at la Bruissanne was perfect! My husband & I are seasoned travelers & after extensive research selected la Bruissanne as our base to explore Provence. We wanted to stay near Aix, convenient for day trips, but also a serene place to relax. La Bruissanne far exceeded our ideals!
A website can not capture the beauty of this property, which is down a quiet, tree lined lane & behind tall, manicured hedgerows with a secure iron gate. The landscaping is exquisite and well lit in the evening. Each guest room has a private entrance & separate outdoor sitting area. While there were other guests, we rarely saw or heard anyone during our 12 days at la Bruissanne. The rooms are impeccably clean, tastefully furnished in Provencal style, with fine quality linens. "Fanny" is a small, pretty room, detached from the main house, with a large covered sitting area where Sophie brought breakfast each morning. The outdoor heaters are a thoughtful addition for cooler mornings & evenings.
The outdoor kitchen is convenient & well stocked with coffee, teas, dishes & utensils. Perfect for preparing the goodies we found each day at the markets! Sophie is a gracious, thoughtful & knowledgable host, offering suggestions for day trips, restaurants & shopping, along with providing a bookshelf of maps & guide books.
Thank you Sophie for making our stay at la Bruissanne so special!
We look forward to returning & recommend highly for the perfect holiday in Provence.
