“Perfect week in Provence”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Les Oliviers exceeded all our expectations, what a wonderful week we had!
If you are into cycling, like us, the location is perfect for a ride up and over Le Mont Ventoux. You can ride up and over and around and through the picturesque Gorge de la Nesque, or simply explore the beautiful villages in the area. The only down side was that the lavender & cherries were already gone - so we'll have to come again to witness the beauty of the lavender fields in full bloom.
If you have a less active holiday in mind, St Saturnin les Apt is perfectly positioned for day outings in the area whilst you can then return to the peacefulness of a small hilltop village.
The swimming pool was a welcome way to cool down after hot summer days; and the cottages were spotless and well equipped. David & Karen are superb hosts, giving attention to detail and making an effort to let their guests feel welcome and at home.

Dear Peter & Ischen, Thank you for your review and its really good to know how much you enjoyed your stay and in particular the region. As you say its a cyclist paradise, and with lots of wonderful villages surrounding us there is so much to explore. May and early June are best for Cherries and late June into July for the Lavender. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back regards D&K

“Perfect place for a summer break”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We have stayed at this property on several previous occasions and were delighted to return this year. It is a beautifully equipped and very well maintained small gite, with a private terrace (with table to eat at and barbeque) and has shared use of a glorious infinity pool set in an attractive garden. The hosts are very friendly and hospitable (but never intrusive); they normally call by in the mornings to check everyone is ok, and are always available at apero time for general conversation (or requests for restaurant bookings). We love coming here and cannot imagine anywhere better for a fortnight's stay in Provence.

“A perfect gite in the wonderful Luberon Valley”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a wonderful week as guests of David & Karen Taylor at one of their gites on the edge of the delightful Saint Saturnin Les Apt. The accommodation was perfect with a view overlooking the infinity swimming pool and then on to the valley. The gite was very well appointed with everything we could have asked for, including the complimentary bottle on wine chilling in the fridge. We spent most evenings relaxing on our terrace after cooking dinner on the barbecue provided. There is an opportunity to mix with the other quests and the owners for pre-dinner drinks in the lovely seating area at the end of the pool, where you can watch the sun go down. David & Karen are extremely welcoming and are ready to offer advice on where to go and what to do to get the most out of the area. As a keen cyclist, David was happy to arrange bike hire for me and then to take me on a fantastic ride to the summit of Mt Ventoux, which is one of the famous hill climbs on the Tour De France. A shattering day but well worth it - David's expert knowledge of the various routes and landmarks in the area made the ride much more interesting. I will certainly be arranging another day out with David as a guide when we return, as I know we will.

Dear H&C, Thanks for your comments, so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Always happy to sort bike hire and accompany around the region which I love especially going up Mont Ventoux - as long as its not a racing challenge! I've only been in the saddle just over a year!! Also good to know you enjoyed the gite and the region and we hope to welcome you back soon! Kind regards D&K

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed in Chambre du Platane, the B & B adjacent to the gites and sharing the amazing infinity pool. The room is lovely and well equipped, minibar, tea and coffee provided, and loads of hangers. David and Karen are excellent hosts making sure that everything needed is provided. A beautiful property with outstanding views.

Dear Jean & Ian,
Thank you for your comments and its good to know you enjoyed your experience with us. The B&B room is ideal extra accommodation if you have friends or family in the gites or Le Chene, or of course in its own right as a bed & breakfast room

“Our 9th stay !!”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Gite is in a beautiful location, with amazing views of the Luberon Hills. It is equipped with everything you need & is spotlessly clean & comfortable. It is a very pretty short walk to the delightful village, which has lots of amenities including two very good boulangeries. David & Karen are excellent hosts, who are always willing to share their vast knowledge of the area with you. The best villages/towns etc, & best places to eat, of which there are many! There are numerous wonderful places to visit, so it is good to catch over aperos around the lovely pool early evening. We have booked once again for 2018!
