All services 5 stars. Very nice and well organized.
We had an amazing trip, and the house was, as you described, really exceptional. The weather was perfect and we're already thinking about booking for a week in '14.
For me the house was perfect, with one exception. We are more than avid cooks, I've been producing cooking television for the past 15 years, and prior to that I took a 2 year sabbatical from television to attend culinary school and cook in fine dining restaurants here in NYC. We rented this property on Ingrid's recommendation because she said the kitchen was great. True to her word, the kitchen is fabulous, but the cookware is not. It was surprising to me that someone would spend so much money on top-tier appliances and other infrastructural things, but supply such ordinary pots and pans. I actually ruined a Tefal pan thinking it was ovenproof (the handle broke off) and then spent $60 replacing it. I wasn't expecting Mauviel, but All-Clad or Viking, or any of the mid-tier lines would have been more consistent with the rest of the kitchen. As for the knives, they looked nice, but we always travel with our own, so I can't say if they were sharp or not.
Honestly, that was my only negative experience at the house, outside of that it was pretty perfect.
Until next year... warm regards.
Our stay at the Relais was amazing! The house is very well appointed and the location
was fantastic. We loved coming “ home” each day and sitting outside overlooking the Luberon Mountains
with wine, cheese and all the goodies we bought at the markets. We were four couples and each
bedroom and bath were comfortable and roomy.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. This was my seventh group to take to
Provence and this was the best house so far.
I do not know where you could improve.
I give Le Relais 5 stars.

Located in a quiet hamlet, the home is situated near Roussillon, Bonnieux & Gordes in an ancient vineyard of 5 acres, with expansive views of the Luberon and Ventoux Mountains. The region is home to some of France's finest restaurants. But perhaps the true glory of Provencal cuisine resides in the many small, family-run restaurants serving a prix-fixe menu with tasty fresh, locally produced ingredients.
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.
