The summer of 2017 was a special one in that I had just turned 70 and wanted to celebrate and recognise the event by sharing a holiday with my brother and sister in law who live in Canada. They have visited Provence a number of times and when the opportunity to stay in La Lune arose we jumped at it, spending two glorious weeks their in July
The house is just perfect, brilliantly appointed with three beautiful double bedrooms each with it’s own en suite bathroom and glorious views across the Bedoin countryside and the beautifully private garden filled with lavender, oleander, olives and geraniums.
The kitchen is marvellously well equipped and the outside terrace was perfect for cool breakfasts under the shade of the awning over which vines are beginning to grow or for evening suppers with a few glasses of one of the local delicate rose wines.
It does not take long to feel as if the house is your own perfect hideaway, just far enough out of the lovely local town of Bedoin to be private but a pleasant walk, via the back road, or a short drive to the lovely local restaurants and shops. The market days are all within easy reach in other local villages and are a wonderful way to discover and enjoy the fabulous local foods and the boulangeries are incredible!
La Lune is also a brilliant location for longer excursions to the beautiful lavender fields of Sault to the east or the Abbaye de Senaque to the south in this beautiful rural area as well as exciting drives, or cycle rides for the more energetic, through the surrounding gorges of this lovely area.
Alternatively la Lune is such a lovely place all we wanted to do was go to an early morning market for fresh produce and then enjoy a day reading under the olive and apricot trees by the beautiful salt water pool on one of the plentiful poolside loungers!
If we needed any help the lovely Crystalle, for household and shopping queries or Robert, looking after the gardening, were discretely on hand to offer it and all the bed linen was changed in the middle of our stay which felt very special!
Thank you so much to Sally and Peter for providing such wonderful retreat to unwind and enjoy this beautiful region of La Belle France!
