The main house offers a large formal living room and a dining room for 12, as well as a smaller TV room with satellite dish. The kitchen has just been redecorated, and is truly the heart of the house. Equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a large pantry, and all the necessary cookware, from family heirlooms to modern pots and pans, it is truly fit for the gourmet cook.
Our Guests will feel at ease thanks to the imported measurement tools, cookbooks, washer/dryer and ice-water dispenser fridge... You may choose to have breakfast on the back patio, have a quick lunch in the cool of the kitchen, enjoy an evening drink in the outside living room and dine outside on the large teak table by the BBQ, looking out to the pool.
With AC in all the bedrooms, very comfortable beds, lots of towels and all paper and cleaning supplies, kitchen staples, hairdryers, high-speed internet access, Satellite TV with CNN and other English-speaking (as well as German, Spanish, Italian...) channels, a separate clothes dryer, a BBQ grill, a heated pool suitable for laps, a pétanque game area, a huge and very private garden with panoramic views of the Apt valley, Laise en Provençe is a vacation dream come true.
You may decide to spend an active day, discovering one of the numerous villages perching on the hills, visiting the splendid Abbaye of Sénanque in its nest of lavender, shopping at the local markets or at the nearby farm 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 in the adjacent forest and cooling off in the pool.
The pool is heated, and once you have enjoyed a midnight bath in the starry night, watching the twinkling lights in the valley as you swim, you will truly feel in paradise.

Q. How would you rate the cleanliness of the villa? (5 being best)
Q. What else could we provide to improve your stay?
R. Not one thing. Perfect.
Q. Is there anything that needs to be replaced or updated?
R. Nothing to replace but steps on main level of villa are hard to see because stone floors are uniform from level to level. It’s dangerous. If there could be some way to make sets more obvious, that would be a wonderful addition! Also, wireless on second floor is very weak.
Q. Did you book any chef or tour services? If so, what was your experience?
Q. Chef Tour Experience Details
R. Chef Julien Lafoix is a wonderful chef and a delightful person. We should have booked him for more than one night!
Q. Would you consider staying here again?
Q. What did you like about your experience?
R. The house was clean and well-equipped, with every amenity we could have wished for. The staff at Only Provence was friendly, reliable, and always helpful — from selection of villa through contract to actual stay. But for the steps, there was nothing that begged improvement.
Q. What is one thing we could do to improve your experience with Only Provence in the future?
Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. How lucky we were to have chosen Only Provence out of all of the online possibilities available.

Located in the heart of the Luberon in a natural setting. Laise en Provence is the perfect location to discover the Luberon villages and the surrounding countryside-just a stone's throw from Bonnieux, Gordes, Roussillon and many other lovely hill-top villages.
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.

Only Provence co-founder Lydia Dean writes about their experiences raising a family, building a business in Provence, and later combining the love of travel with giving back in "Jumping the Picket Fence”. In 2021, she published “Light Through the Cracks,” a continuation of her journey, much of which has been based in Provence. Both books are available Amazon, Amazon.uk, and Amazon.Fr.
