“Cozy place in an enchanting countryside setting”

We stayed at "Les Platanes," which is a detached property adjacent to the main chateau. The little house was very cozy and had everything we needed (we were four adults and a small child). The common grounds were amazing! My child enjoyed playing in the swings and the trampoline, as well as looking at the nearby horses. The pool water was too cold for us, so we did not try the pool. My family enjoyed playing tennis, having BBQs, and just relaxing in the nice warm weather outside. The owners are very friendly and will make sure you have everything you need. I will only suggest that a wifi range extender be installed in the house because there was not internet connection inside the house. Otherwise, I give this property two thumbs up.

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at La Loubiere for a week early June 2013. I cannot rate our stay high enough. The weather that time of year mainly warm and sunny, with one wet day (which was refreshing!)

La Loubiere is perfectly situated, with the balance of seclusion and accessibility, to the local town Pertius (2 mins), and Aix-en-Provence (20 mins) also day trips in mind with Cassis and Avignon for example all within reach. There is also a string of picturesque towns with markets, and historic sites, namely Lourmarian, Bonnieux etc (also a highly recommended drive on the twisty roads of D943!)

The grounds with swimming pool and tennis court are also ample and perfect for spending a few quiet days to ‘kick back’ with facilities creating a ‘home from home’ atmosphere. Alec & Deb were very welcoming and helpful with great knowledge of the local area. They respected our privacy but were always available when we required anything.

Cannot recommend La Loubiere enough!

“Authentic country house setting”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Immensely enjoyed the quiet and ambiance of the French country setting. We stayed in the two story Les Platanes. We had leisurely breakfasts we made in the kitchen but otherwise ate in Aix-en-Provence. The shutters and windows were open into a lovely setting. The interior of stone and the unlevel floor on the second level increased the authenticity of the cottage feel. However, we had a modern kitchen and bathroom!

Liked best: The stone walls of the cottage.
Liked least: Drive out to the country. But how can you have the quiet without the drive?

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We ended our three week vacation to Italy and France at la Loubiere. It was absolutely fantastic! Alec and Deb are so sweet and kind to show us all through their main house and property. It was so fun to be staying in a home built in the early 1600s. The grounds had plenty of space for our kids to play, horses nearby, a pool, trampoline, and tennis. We planned our day trips based on their recommendations and each day was such a memory! Loved every bit! I hope we get the opportunity to return.

“Superb Holiday Once Again”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This year, we went back to Chateau de la Loubiere. This time we stayed in La Grange, a fantastic gite with everything you need for the perfect holiday. Comfortable beds, high quality linen, towels etc, good size bathrooms, large kitchen and open plan dining and sitting room. The fully equipped kitchen enables you to shop for local produce at the various markets and enjoy lunch/dinner on the wonderful terrace which gets the sun all day and then spend time having a dip or just relaxing by the pool. From the terrace you can delight in the beautiful sunsets with a glass of local wine. There are also many great places to visit, this year we went to Cassis, Bandol and La Ciotat on the coast and enjoyed wonderful seafood. We also visited L'Isle sur la Sorgue for the Thursday market and of course the Friday market at Lourmarin for a 'people watching' lunch. Pertuis itself is a good size town with everything you need, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants etc and is very central for exploring Provence.
The owners, Deb and Alec are English, and are very knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating and helpful.
Chateau de la Loubiere is always our choice for Provence holidays and hopefully we will be back very soon.

“Disappointing holiday”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in La grange and Sebastian's house, whilst la grange was comfortable, Sebastian's house felt as though some more modernisation as claimed in the accomodation notes was required. The stairs in la grange were so steep our children needed assistance to walk down to the bathroom which is situated on the floor below. There is no T.V in Sebastian's house, which for the rental cost I found disgusting. My daughter also needed help in the bathroom when faced with a mouse walking across the floor, we also found the cooker to be filthy when first used by us and the fridge freezer had seen better days.
