“Amazing, amazing experience”

I've actually stayed here more than once. 4 times actually. I'm addicted to this property and to it's location "everything Provence". It's not everyday that you can rent an authentic, historical village house (village dates back to 985), and then by car get to 3-5 other villages everyday without beating yourself into the ground.

The house is AMAZING!. I cry whenever I leave it. It's magical actually. Barb, the owner (15 years) has taken meticulous care of it and had updated the kitchen and all the bathrooms to today's standards, but has left intact the ambience of "old and quaint and traditional French country home", nestled in the Luberon Valley. It's actually like being on a movie set. There is a HUGE fireplace. An inner courtyard with a large fountain (everything lights up at night) that used to be where the livestock were stored. Up on the 3rd floor is a wonderful outdoor terrace that over looks both the village to one side, and then the inner courtyard on the other side. You can have a lovely cocktail party here with easily enough room for a dozen. It offers a "summer kitchen adjacent to the terrace", so that's an easy thing to pull off.

The fireplace in the living-room is enormous. If it's "fireplace" season, it's also a magical way to wind down the day. With all the lighting and fireplace and candles lite at night, the place actually glows a beautiful soft golden light. It's an experience that I look forward to each time that I come.

Barb is a gourmet expert, so the kitchen is equipped with every known cookware and gadget known to mankind. You can literally do a different farmers market each day and then come home and cook amazing meals in the kitchen. The dining room table is very large so it's cozy for two or big enough to seat ten if you want to impress your friends with your French cooking skills from the ingredients you bought that day took cook "slow Provence".

I've been traveling the World for three decades and mostly rent a home when I can rather than book a hotel room. This is a special place in the Provence. You seriously won't want to leave!

“A beautiful time in a place in the center of one of the most beautiful village in France.”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in November 2012

The experience of spending Thanksgiving with my partner and friends in the Luberon, could not have been better, especially staying at this stunning home lovingly renovated and maintained by the owner, Barb.

The village of Ansouis is stunning to say the least, and this place is so well located both in the village and area, it really felt like a home one could stay in for life. The comfortable furnishings, enormous French provencial fireplace, roof terrace and welcoming beds made it hard to leave the home itself for our daily excursions. We fully utilized the incredibly well equipped kitchen (there were more than one foodie in our group) and took advantage of the list of markets to go to everyday there and in the surrounding villages. Even the bathrooms are wonderful, and were hard to leave... : )

We walked to neighboring wineries and would explore by driving around the valley without maps, just to get lost in the experience of the Luberon knowing we would eventually be able to find our way and return to this welcoming place. Would I recommend this place to others? Well I have on more than one occasion, and they would easily outdo me with their praise. It is a true provincial experience, not touristy like many other homes and villages can be. It is authentic, beautifully maintained and French with all the conveniences I would want in a second home.

We plan to return in the next year and feel that there would be no better place to call our home away from home in Provence, the Luberon Valley and our favorite village in the south, Ansouis.

“Serene Provence”

I absolutely loved this location. The house had all the amenities for a fantastic base in the amazing Luberon region of Provence. The beautiful new gourmet kitchen was very accommodating for either croissants and coffee in the morning or to create a lavish dinner from all the goodies purchased at the Regional open markets . The roof top deck was beautiful and comfortable and was the place we seemed to migrate everyday for a Rose Happy Hour and to sample the amazing variety of sausages and cheeses made locally. This was a great opportunity for all to discuss the days events. We were only four people but we thought of returning with a larger group of friends as the house had five bedrooms and 4.5 baths and could easily accommodate a bigger crew. The town itself is very unique and a quaint place with everything one could want within steps of the home . Cafe / bar across the street made a great cappuccino and the the French bakery just around the corner served warm Panne Chocolat and amazing breakfast quiche. (Note to Dads ..it is considered the mans job to pick up the bread every morning). There is also a Michelin rated restaurant less than a two minute walk away with an outdoor terrace looking out over the valley. We ate here twice and both meals I considered outstanding and would satisfy even the most discriminating of taste palettes. Ansouis was easy access to many of the great locations in Provence and the Luberon Region. We took day trips to Chateau Neuf du Pape, St Remy, St Tropez, Luberon, Aix en Provence,, L'isle-sur-la Sorgue ( which I would highly recommend to anyone staying here), and many others. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this house and all the charm it had to offer. It was a very comfortable home base of a vacation I will cherish forever. If you are looking for a scene, this is not your place. But if you can relate to the natural beauty of the Luberon Region, the quaintness of small Provincial towns, open country roads, fields of grape vines and Lavender, beautiful sunny days, amazing food and wine, daily markets in neighboring towns (featuring food, apparel, soaps and accessories) and a few hundred years of history mixed in.......... This could be the place your looking for .....certainly full of comfort, great memories, picturesque landscapes and great exploring.

Loved it......didn't want to leave......can't wait to go back.............

The place is wonderful. The location is great and it is RELAXING. The owner recently did the kitchen and bath and it is the most relaxing get away. Short drive to many points of interest. The owner upgraded since our last visit. The place is fabulous and reasonable.

“Won't Stay Anywhere Else in France - My FAVORITE spot!”

Have been to Chez B in Ansouis twice now, and am planning stay #3. The cozy, historic, well appointed and absolutely luxurious accommodations just can't be compared to anywhere else. From opening the wooden shutters to the clean, fresh air in the morning, to coffee on the 3rd story open air deck, to the daily walk through the village, to fresh market dinner in the fabulous kitchen, and wine wine wine all around in front of the fireplace, lounging on the overstuffed white down sofas... It's pure heaven and I can't wait to go back!!! If you've been to Provence a thousand times, or if you've never been to Europe at all, this is the perfect place to stay!
