Our week in Le Clos was magnificent. The villa is nestled along side the old medieval walls of Menerbes and is in a wonderful location buried inside the Luberon region in Vaucluse. There are many (40+) local vintners in the area some within walking distance producing some excellent wines. Even for the refined palet the wines are of high quality for only 6E to 10E (We're from Canada so this is difficult to grasp). Many many local markets close by. We spent a week exploring the area and hardly scratched the surface. In May the poppies were in full bloom. Around every corner there was a new surprise
Menerbes is centrally located and it is easy to hit some of the more touristy locals like Gordes, Lacoste and Isle D'Sorgue but we found just the right mix of amenities right in the village. A great bakery, a handful of restaurants and patios all within walking distance and a great place to retreat to after a busy day exploring
Le Clos itself was excellent. We were 3 couples that like to cook and visit. Wonderful space outside and inside if you want to sit and read alone or if youre gathering for a meal. Enjoyed the large roaring fireplace and morning coffee out in the courtyard.
Easy access from Avignon by car. The owners are very easy to work with and have a family connection with a local winery It is obvious they are very proud of the area. It is not just a place to sleep and eat; they want you to experience all the area has to offer

We have returned to the Luberon 3 years in a row now and this property was perfect! Excellent location, Beautiful accommodations with every amenity. We are wine aficionados and this property is located among the most beautiful vineyards / wineries in the area. Easy walk to the beautiful village of Menerbes!

It is just so lovely!
Three friends rented this property for three weeks, each with our own bedroom. We solved the much coveted master bedroom issue by having it for one week each. It is a glorious space! Although the property is in Menerbes, it is far enough away from the center so noise was not an issue. The kitchen is well equipped and it was fun to cook in it after visiting the many village markets and hauling back fresh produce. If we forgot to get a staple, it was just a short walk to one of Menerbes' shops to pick it up. We ate most of our meals outside in the lovely garden, under a glorious tree. I loved all the windows that let in bright sunshine and fresh air, almost turning the living room and kitchen into an intermediate patio space. The local rep (sorry, I've forgotten her name) was just delightful and it was an added bonus that the damage deposit was returned immediately the day of our departure. It is such a pain to await the return of a damage deposit once you are home. The property sits in the middle of a vineyard but is very close to a major artery - visiting the various nearby villages was our primary activity. It is just so lovely! We have stayed in gites in Provence and although they were great, there is nothing like the convenience of being right in a town, yet still be secluded enough for peace and quiet. Tip: it is difficult to find at night if you are going for the first time so try to arrive by daylight.
