We spent a week at arnaud and Dorothee's place in Merindol in September 2012 and dont regret a minute of our time. The place is lovely, new, clean and perfectly furnished.
Considering the efforts and time the owners put in it, i think its gonna get better and better with time, so we already booked for 2013!
Luberon is probably one of the loveliest places in Provence, and the house is well situation between avignon/Marseille and its airport/ Arles / Baux de Provence etc...
Would warmly recommend it.

Very charming Chalet located on great, fenced site with well cared garden full of flowers. Our small children (two < 4 years) loved to freely run around, use the playground and the trampolines. With the fenced swimming pool, the parents could keep cool and lazy when the kids had real good fun. Very nice landlord family that lives in the main building on the site. We really liked it and will definitely come back one day.

Excellent séjour passé en famille à la Bastide des Grandes Terres (dont 3 ados) !
Un très bon accueil des propriétaires. Ils ont été disponibles et soucieux du bien être de leurs locataires On ressent de suite leur envie de nous faire partager les beautés de leur région, et nous font gagner un temps précieux en nous transmettant les bons coins, les bonnes adresses à ne pas manquer tels que : Lourmarin, les gorges du régalon Isle sur la Sorgue, Lauris avignon... et bien d'autres encore.
