A glorious four days spent in the charming village of Menerbes was complemented by the perfection of the accommodation provided by Maison Olive. Everything about this splendidly appointed maison added to an unforgettable experience, memories of which we shall cherish for a long time to come. The owners have created an atmosphere of relaxed luxuriance in which we immediately felt very much at home. Enormous attention to detail has been paid to everything from the most comfortable of beds and invitingly lounging sofas to the magnificently well equipped kitchen. Plus the bonus of modern high tech tv and dvd. Thank you for helping to make our experience of Provence so special, Highly recommended.

“Perfect”

Perhaps a perfectly presented rental cottage that you can instantly feel is your own home in one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Provence. Access from Marseille was simple. The house was presented in perfect condition with literally everything you could wish for to hand, all with a very special quality of provence, with love. January ,you would think , not to be the most perfect time but believe me even the Mistral wind was stunning!
To visit other villages and markets and return to the comfort of Maison Olive, felt that you had always been there. The scores may seem too perfect, this is for a reason.

“A charming house and setting, and great base for the Luberon.”
Reviewed 15 December 2011 for a stay in November 2011

This is a charming house in the village of Menerbes. It will comfortably accommodate up to six people, and is ideally positioned as a based from which to explore the beautiful Luberon. Lovonne and Simon were a delight to deal with, answering all our queries promptly and providing detailed directions and access information. They provided great information about the area. The house is nicely furnished, and the kitchen is well equipped. Location is beautiful and peaceful, with so much to see and do. Lovonne has prepared detailed and very useful notes about the area. I have no hesitation in recommending Maison Olive to a group or a family, and would happily choose it again for a holiday in the South of France. Thanks Lovonne & Simon for a wonderful experience.

“Exquisitely furnished, outstanding comfort, personal attention to every detail.”
Reviewed 26 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

As an English speaking visitor to France, the guide book which greeted us at Maison Olive, was our first very welcome surprise. Researched, written and produced by our hosts, this guide book insured that not a single minute would be wasted and not a single sight missed during our visit to Provence. Every need had been catered for. We always judge accommodation by the comfort of the bed, the linen and the pillows. Maison Olive surpassed any accommodation we have every stayed in. Crisp, white cotton linen, soft feather pillows, down duvets, and superb mattresses ensured a good nights sleep. A kitchen boasting every item (including recipe books) that even a professional chef would love - a beautiful living area overlooking a meadow filled with Oak and Olive trees was a memory we will always hold close to our hearts. Easy parking was an added bonus to our week long visit. We have already booked another week for 2012 and will make this our annual destination for many more years to come. Unbelievable attention to detail. just stunning.

“Idyllic Provence”
Reviewed 31 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We had the most fantastic two weeks in Maison Blanc and Olive. The
houses were ideally located within a 5 minute walk into Menerbes which is a very pretty village. The house has the most wonderful gardens and outside areas. We had lunch most days under the oak tree at the wooden table, just what one dreams about when going on holiday to Provence.

Both homes were very comfortable and had a wonderful lived in homely feel and very well equipped.
