After a wonderful 2 weeks with our grandchildren at Bastide des Cardelines we felt we were "leaving home" on our last morning. We had the whole house to ourselves, 4 bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin and 1 single) which was ideal for our group of 7. With a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine our little "home" lacked nothing. All we had to do was shop for food, a pleasure with all the small local village markets every day, and a large supermarche not far away in nearby Cavaillon. Set amidst lush orchards and farms the old farmhouse sits in a lovely garden, with an attractive, clean, and good sized pool which was ideal for the family. The house has "climatisation" ( = evaporative type cooling), and with the thick walls and heavy wooden shutters the interior stayed comfortable in spite of 10 days with temps closer to 40 than 30C.
Michele and Robert our hosts were excellent, happy to advise and recommend what to see in this most interesting part of France, time being the only limiting factor! Michele's English is competent and my basic French was adequate to communicate with Mr Fix-it , Robert. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely accommodation in an ideal centrally located spot within the beautiful Luberon area of Vaucluse in Provence. Elizabeth Caldicott, South Australia
