Paradise in Provence

We stayed in Eva and Niels beautiful home for a fortnight with our 12 and 15 year old sons. Everything was just perfect and as portrayed in the photographs. The interior of the house is cool in the Summer heat, the bathrooms are spacious and work well, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. There is outside space on both sides of the house so it is easy to find a quite shady spot to read and look out at the beautiful landscape.The house was a very relaxing and stylish place to hang out. It is also very conveniently situated - in a few minutes walk you are right in the centre of Ménerbes. We found Ménerbes to be an excellent base. It has a nice selection of small shops and restaurants and is not too touristy. It was nice to stroll into town each morning and buy some fresh bread and croissants for breakfast and maybe some nice quiche and salad for lunch at the house. There is also an excellent pizzeria with the option to order a takeaway. Ménerbes is a great base for visiting the other Luberon villages and if you are feeling more energetic it is easy to drive to the beach (around 1 hour 40 mins). The owners gave us a warm welcome and responded quickly to any requests. We had very little need to bother them as everything in the house worked well. In summary we had a great holiday and would not hesitate to recommend La Source as the perfect base for a relaxing stay.

Smashing!

Our family (parents, daughter, son with girlfriend) stayed for one week in this beautiful house. We have had an unforgettable week. First of all, a very warm welcome that made us feel at home immediately. Second; The house has all the features you need and more. There is a cosy and spacious living room. A brand new and very complete kitchen that along with all the regional delicatessen, assures you from having a delicious stay. The bathrooms are very comfortable and so are the bedrooms. The extra guesthouse is also adorable and a real plus. The pool, garden and terraces are outstanding. Lots of space to hang out, be lazy, read a book, have drinks, play games or do some workouts. Other highlights during a stay in La Source are for example the few (4?)minute walk you have to take to reach the pretty and authentic village of Menerbes (where you’ll find a wonderful bakery, little epicerie, maison de la truffe et du vin, etc.) The beautiful surroundings and breathtaking views, the historic neighbor villages and regional markets. Catchwords are: clean, wonderful, complete, place-to-come-back-to!

Pool with a View

My husband and I stayed at La Source with dear friends, and we could not believe our luck. The house itself is just beautiful, with historic features, comfortable furnishings, and lovely decor. The kitchen had just been renovated, so everything was in top shape. All rooms were spotlessly clean and well-appointed. The beautiful gardens and pool are dreamy, with views to the lavender field and hills beyond. We were there in the heat of summer, so we spent many late afternoons cooling off in the pool and enjoying wine and cheese outdoors. The location of this home is perfect: Walk up the driveway and a staircase, and you are in the charming village of Menerbes, where there are wonderful shops and restaurants. We spent most of our days sightseeing, visiting the Pont du Gard, towns like Gordes and Bonnieux, and the ruins of Glanum. We also took a cooking class with Gilles of Provence Gourmet, and that was really memorable. On the last night of our week in Menerbes, we enjoyed a special dinner at the tiny restaurant Les Saveurs Gourmandes. I strongly recommend La Source and the village of Menerbes in general to anyone visiting The Luberon.
