The space

This beautifully designed house will give you a fantastic sense of space and light with its large living-room and full-height glass sliding doors opening to a tailored garden with wonderful olive trees, a fantastic pool and striking views of the village and medieval castle. You may choose to have breakfast or enjoy an evening drink in the terrace, have a quick lunch in the cool of the kitchen, and dine outside on the large teak table by the BBQ, looking out to the pool. You may decide to spend an active day, discovering one of the numerous villages perching on the hills, shopping at the numerous local markets for the bountiful produce of the region, or you may decide to do nothing and stay at the house all day, resting in the shade, listening to the humming "Cigales", or going for a walk to the nearby castle and cooling off in the pool. Cadenet is an authentic provençal village. Lourmarin is 5 min' drive and Aix-en-Provence lovely city is only 13 miles away.

This place really is as good as it looks. The house is comfortable, modern and well-equipped, with a great pool and lovely garden in a very quiet and relaxing setting. The housekeeper couldn't have been more helpful or friendly - and when we did have a couple of queries, she was on hand to solve any queries we had (figuring out the gas BBQ and air conditioning). The house is a 3 minute walk in to the village centre and only a 5 minute drive to Lourmarin - a beautiful village in Luberon hills. It's an excellent base to discover the Luberon villages, and the rest of Provence, (a 35 minute drive to Aix-en-Provence). We could not fault the house - the kids gave it (and the pool) a big thumbs up. All our dealings with the host were quick and helpful and the welcome pack was most welcome. 5 stars!

We had a fantastic time at the house. Everything was perfect and the home was more lovely than the photos. The house was beautifully decorated and in perfect condition. The location was great for visiting all the lovely Luberon towns. Brigitte, the manager responded right away, and a great welcome package of basic necessities were much appreciated after our long journey.

We had an unbelievable time at Ilda's house. The house is absolutely amazing and exeeded our expectations. It's exactly what you see in the photos and much more. It's fully equiped in the most modern and beautiful items - both in the kitchen, the rooms and the showers. The floor was heated which was super cool especially since we had some cold days there, so it was very nice to come back from a long travel day to a nice and warm house. The house manager Jessica was so nice and responsive. Every question and request answered in a split second. She came and took care of every minor problem we had, always with a smile and in minutes. We received a wonderful welcome package that made us feel at home immediately when we arrived and all in all - we can't wait to come back. When we asked our kids what was the best part of our holiday they said - THE HOUSE! Thanks a lot for making our holiday in Provence such a wonderful experience.

Nous avons passé un très beau séjour dans une magnifique villa, très confortable, au calme, avec un joli petit village traditionnel accessible a pied très facilement, et un joli village touristique et animé à quelques minutes de voiture. Brigitte nous a accueillis de façon très sympathique, nous a conseillé les jolis marchés et les restaurants! en résumé, de merveilleuses vacances!
