Q. Would you consider staying here again?
Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. We loved the whole villa - its ambience, its garden and pool, its quiet, its proximity to the village. The unheated pool was refreshing after being out and about each day and we loved the different seating arrangements inside and out. And of course the beds were comfy and we appreciated the change of linens mud-stay.
Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
R. Honestly, I cannot think of anything beyond what I have already said as we were all very satisfied with our selection and the communication before our arrival and during our stay. We were fortunate that one member of our group was fluent in French as it would have been difficult to understand our greeter otherwise.
Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. All six of us highly recommend le Bastidon de Lourmarin. We found the setting delightful, the pool refreshing, the beds very comfortable, the cooking options satisfactory, and its proximity to the village perfect, close enough for two of us to drive into the boulangerie each morning for croissants, and the like. Many thanks for your service. We truly enjoyed our stay!
