Les Trois Sources is all that it is reknowned to be ... and then some!
A fantastic guest house which offers all that is best about Provence. The location - a short distance from the picturesque medieval villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste - offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, being set in a converted silk farm surrounded by acres of greenery. The grounds provide a tranquill stroll with vineyards, an orchard and lavender fields to tease the eye; while the courtyard - which also plays host to breakfast - provides comfort and shade from the Provencial sun. And the location of the pool - away from the main grounds, amidst the vineyards - insures that bathing is private and, likewise, others are not disturbed by noise.
The guest house is luxurious for those looking for all that is fine about Provence - the antique and rustic features matched stylishly and carefully throughout the various rooms of the building, avoiding the cliched and the garish. Rooms are spotlessly clean and well serviced; while the beds are comfortable. Views from the rooms are magnificent, especially at night when the Chateau-de-Sade that sits at the top of Lacoste is lit up.
For those in search of Romantic charm, or those seeking tranquility, this is the perfect location.
The hosts, Caroline Guinard & Paul Jeannet, are very friendly and helpful. Moreover, they avoid the pitfall of so many guest house owners who feel they must push themselves upon you at every opportunity: Caroline and Paul respect your privacy and appreciate that seeking a tranquil and relaxing stay does not require their constant presence or intrusion.
It is a bit of a journey to reach Les Trois Sources, if not indistance, then certainly over the terrain - especially if you make the mistake of not following the hosts' directions and relying instead on GoogleMaps, as we did - and car hire is essential. That said, it is worth the effort. More to the point, it provides the perfect location for excursions to other beauty spots, such as Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages in France.
