I spent a week living out a luxury bed & breakfast in a gorgeous hillside village within The Luberon, which is the best place to be in the countryside if you are looking for endless fields of lavender, vineyards and olive groves. Every morning I woke up to a delicious spread of gourmet items, ranging from croissants, fruits, cheeses, baguettes, jams to specialty baked items like cake and clafoutis. There were also coffee and juice! Plus, the panoramic view from the tables was breathtaking. Both were truly reasons to wake up early for.
Bedrooms were homely with windows that open up into the village. We had one in the bathroom as well. There’s nothing quite like fresh air billowing into your room. In case you were wondering, yes there is air conditioning and daily cleaning service. I might also add, the toiletries stocked were all L’Occitane!
There were spiral staircases leading down to the salon and even further down to the open kitchen and garden.
Now, let tell you about the garden and pool. When, I walked through the first time, I felt like I was transported to a fairytale world. The lush greenery was such a welcome. That feeling stayed with me as I walked around town. I kept asking myself, “Is this real?!” As, someone from a big city, sights like this just amazes me. Simply, the best.
