We stayed 6 nights at Les Olivettes and found it a very comfortable house in which to stay. It is in fact a number of separate apartments that have been tastefully renovated most having some kitchen facilities but able to share the well equipped kitchen of the house. Each apartment has its own courtyard in which to sit and have a pleasant drink or meal if you've become satiated with the excellent restaurants of the town. The complex is a short stroll into the village which is what we did most evenings when going to a restaurant or to get provisions. Like most villages parking is anissue at peak times so having a safe park so close was a plus. The grounds as the name implies planted to well established olive trees and has a nice pool.
Our hosts Elisabeth and Joseph live nearby and were there to meet us and to helpfully explain facilities , like cooking, restaurants, washing machines and a real bonus a Netspresso which deliver great coffee to go with the morning rolls they deliver each day. The common lounge room has a wonderful view back to Lourmarin framed in a large window and our hosts have provided a great collection of reference books of the area to help plan trips , walks etc. We would happily return if planning another holiday in the region.
