“charming place but not so welcoming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Gorgeous area with beautiful typical french villages in the area. The place is a nice renovated house with classy pool, big garden, nice rooms with a large bathroom in ours although not much pressure in the shower.

Spent 3 days there for a wedding. Although the surroundings are heaven we were disappointed with the breakfast and it's less a homey bed and breakfast than a hotel that you can find in any city center. The owner is welcoming but his wife will brutally notice you your departure time almost barking at you in the morning although you just woke up. In my opinion there is no room for that kind of behavior in a bed and breakfast or in any hotel wherever you are, you always can notice politely things to clients and be professional until the end of the trip. Maybe she should think of occupational retraining.

quel acharnement!!!!!!
nous sommes surpris de ces propos non fondés et mensongers.
Nous ne comprenons pas cette attitude.
Pourquoi écrire en anglais alors que vous parliez français parfaitement.
quelle méchanceté gratuite !!!!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to La Lombarde in the south of the Luberon. This estate has been held in the same family for three hundred years. The Luberon has been home to many notable French literary figures. It was called the "blue whale" by Jean Giono because of its scenic rolling hills and remarkable luminosity; it was written of with fondness by Henri Bosco; and it was often visited by Albert Camus. While a guest at La Lomarde, you can immerse yourself in local culture and history; attend an outdoor concert on the terraces of the nearby castle of Lourmarin (birthplace of composer Franz List); discover the markets of Provence in the heart of its ancient villages; or simply linger over a chilled glass of rosé wine in the shade of a local café. Situated at the southern edge of the Luberon, La Lombarde, a Provençal farm from the 17th century, now classified as a national historic landmark property, is a private oasis of a dozen hectares, of which the vegetation is essentially composed of oaks, vine cypress, wheat and scrubland. A park like surrounding of 10,000 square meters welcomes you into the shade of its truffle trees. You will find a pétanque court where you can play boules, a French version of bocce ball. As one of the original Provencal gîtes (a French rural property similar to a bed and breakfast/ small inn but no exact translation exists). our guests have showed their approval with their fidelity, attachment and satisfaction for the last twenty-three years. ... more   less
