This is a dream hideaway, in a beautiful old "relais de poste," with as much privacy and amenities as you'll need. Céline is a lovely, generous and accommodating host who will pretty much leave you to yourselves. The two-floor, two-room studio apartment has lots of character (with fantastic views of olive groves and the montagne de Lurs), is very clean, with a comfortable bed and a generously equipped kitchen on the ground floor. (There is a tiny fridge in the kitchen, with access to a larger fridge and freezer in the house basement.) The water closet and bathroom are "shared" but this only means that you have to cross a shared (house office) space to get to them (hardly used when we were there): in fact, we had the lovely, large bathroom and W/C to ourselves and were able to leave our stuff out. As you also have your own driveway entrance, you more or less have total privacy. We barely saw Céline, but she was always available and happy to help with anything, to answer our questions or to give advice. (Céline recommended some wonderful local excursions and immediately sent us to the amazing local farmers' coop in La Brillanne, Coté Champs de Provence. One morning she bought us fresh eggs from the neighbor. With such fresh produce available, as well as the big Carrefour and InterMarché supermarkets a few minutes away, and with the well-equipped kitchen, we prepared nearly all our own meals, eating out only once in ten days.) We also had access to the big backyard, but ended up using our own little bit of lawn for sunbathing. The *only* downside to this rental is that it is right on the D12 (as a relais de poste should be), which means pretty regular car, van, motorcycle and lorry traffic just out the window, especially in holiday season. But this is why Céline's rate is so low: with more seclusion, and given the area, she could otherwise charge much more than she does. The location more than makes up for it. (Starting with the views from the window: we spent a lot of time watching the weather over the mountains.) There is an abundance of local walking paths and trails, with many nearby villages to explore, and even a local (popular) swimming hole on the Lauzon river just a few minutes' walk away. A bistro in nearby Lurs perched high above the Durance valley, with incredible views of the alps, serves delicious, locally produced food. The stars at night are fantastic. This is unspoiled Provence, off the beaten path, amidst olive groves and working farms, at the foot of the mountains and on the edge of the magnificent Durance valley: Giono country through and through. (More touristic Provence destinations, such as the lavender fields of Valensole, the perched villages and gorges of the Vaucluse, or Forcalquier's market day, are minutes away by car.) Thank you, Céline, for a fantastic stay. We are already plotting our return!
