We have done two three-week stays at Brume de l'Aube: 2006 and 2011. The house is amazingly well appointed with cozy comfortable terraces overlooking the hazy vistas of the Durance river valley. Stroll down the hill to the enchanting village of Lauris with great amenites, a botanical garden, spectacular battlements ... and don't miss the fish market. Be sure to arrange dinner at Restaurant de la Tour in the 12th century old village where Philippe and Martine wiill serve you Bouillabaise and other Provencal flavors with their own unique twists of Malaysian origin. We stayed with two other couples for each trip. Enjoy communal cooking, in-house laundry facilities and comfortable if cozy room arrangemetns. Unlike the usual villa rental, this house is stocked wtih books, movies and music; employ the honor system! Just a lovely 45 minute drive from Marseille, this rental in the heart of the Luberon has kept us occupied wth daily short trips over two vacations to explore the glorious heart of wine and history -soaked Luberon. Experience everything that Peter Mayle celebrated (and zip down the road to his town, bien sur.) The villa landlord is a delight and the sole of hospitality. Do yourself a favor and book Brume de l"Aube ... but be sure to stay a while. (And negotiate your own arrangemetns with the coterie of neighborhood cats.) Imagine the sound of wind in the oak trees hanging over the four terraces, the buzz of cicadas in the mid day sun, the scent of wild thyme and rosemary tumblling ,the rustling of paper bags as you unwrap your croissant and pains chocolates from the patisserie and the pop of wine corks from local wine. Excellent local or supermarket shopping available 7 days a week.. Bon vacances!!!
