Recently went on a tour of lavender fields and flea markets around the area. Had the pleasure of staying at L'Elephant de Vaugines in the Apartment Cezanne. Even in late June, the room was pleasant and tidy. Francois is a unobtrusive and accommodating host. But the stunner is the back patio and pool which is the most welcome respite after...

I recently led a group of several women to Provence and chose this fabulous B&B as it looked delightful (it is!) and was conveniently located so we could easily reach everything on our itinerary. François was so wonderful to work with-he really knows the area well. The pool was welcomed after a long hot summer day romping through lavender, discovering...

A group of us spent three nights here. The B&B has a good location for exploring the towns in the Luberon valley and plenty of parking is available. Breakfast was served by the pool and the pool was a wonderful place to unwind before dinner after a full day of exploring. The views from the terrace are majestic. Our hosts...

We spent a wonderful 4 nights at L’Elephant de Vaugines. It is located perfectly for exploring the charming towns of Provence nearby, nestled quietly behind the tiny village of Vaugines with magnificent views over the valley of the Luberon mountains. We received a very warm welcome from Sandrine & her daily breakfast was simply excellent with locally sourced organic produce...

We stayed in July 2011 at L'Elephant and the most striking feature of this b&b is the gorgeous views of the mountains and valleys that you get to see while having breakfast or dinner. Also, the lodging itself is decorated in a very artistic, shabby chic way, which we found very inspiring. The whole B&B follows the theme of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE ELEPHANT at Vaugines benefits from a uniquely privileged situation. It dominates the valley of the Durance River from a calm oasis, amongst palm trees, Mediterranean pines and other exotic plants, offering a panoramic view towards the Montagne Sainte Victoire, made world-famous by Cezanne. The property enjoys a completely natural setting on the southern slopes of the Luberon, overlooking the picturesque village of Vaugines with its moss-covered fountain, winding alleyways and stunningly beautiful 12th C church. Vaugines, along with its totally unspoilt surroundings, was the setting for various scenes in the cult films 'Jeanne de Florette' and 'Manon des Sources', based on the works of Marcel Pagnol, produced by Claude Berri and starring Yves Montand and Emmanuelle Beart. ... more   less
