“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed 6 December 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I booked one week early Oct 2012 and had a wonderful time despite breaking my wrist whilst walking up steps in Bonnieux.

Brian Bazin is a wonderful host who clearly wants his guests to have a happy time.

His holiday information folder is a joy, written with style, intimate knowledge of the area and his love for it making the quality of writing sparkle...excellent recommendations for the numerous things to do in the area and where to eat and shop.

The house is in a great setting and well named as, when I threw open the shutters in the morning I could watch the sunrise mingling with haunting, mellow mists.

It has the feel of a really comfortable family home with loads of entertainment in the form of DVDs in case you have the misfortune to experience bad weather (which we did not) or an accident (which I did!).

It is designed to make the most of the lovely views over the hills and valleys and the 2 terraces mean that you can seek sun or shade according to your preferences.

The main bedroom and bathroom on the top floor is large simple and comfortable.

The two other bedrooms on the ground floor are smaller, but with double beds and with their own shower or bathrooms.

The kitchen is part of a huge living and dining area ...and a bit quirky. Lived in, but pretty well equipped (but bring your own chopping knives if you like cooking)!

Getting into the dishwasher was challenging and resulted in occasional shouts of 'We're in!'..but when the others asked 'how' the response was 'No idea!'.... But on reporting this to Bryan he immediately said they would replace it at their next visit...so I am guessing this has been done now.

The oven temperature was guesswork but on holiday, who cares?

Internet access was a bit patchy... But could be obtained at 'Le Table de Margot' in Lauris village which provides a great and good value lunch.

There a excellent local restaurants and Lourmarin market on Fridays is fantastic.

I cannot wait to return and for longer. We all loved it and have a strong sense that Bryan will be keen to respond to reasonable requests and the house seems to absorb the warmth and interest that he shows.

Next time I will drive down, so I can make the most of the great local produce, vineyards and also bring my own knives for cooking.

Thank you Bryan for the lovely stay.

“There' s no nicer day-base to explore the Luberon”
Reviewed 11 March 2012 for a stay in October 2011

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!!!
