Interaction with Guests
I'm please to welcome my guests and share with them the secrets of the Luberon. I'm leaving next door. The 2 houses are really independent.
If unfortunately I'm not present (as travelling sometimes for work) one of my friend/neighbor will welcome you and will be available to answer all your questions on wonderful places to discovers in our National Parc and Region.
The village is quiet and people are very please to welcome foreign persons.
We have 2 pleasant restaurant in the village, a cozy café, a smily grocery store lady.
It is very easy to go around but you definitively need a car. Smalls villages in the Luberon, markets, Aix en Provence, Avignon, Gordes, Marseille, Arles even the beaches and ski resorts are less than one hour drive.
Other Things to Note
you are in heaven, what else?
Smokers are welcome on the terrace only.
The village is quiet and we would like it stays as it is.
Our experience at Annouk's house was exceptional! We were travelling as 3 adults and 1 baby (who had his first birthday at this house!) Annouk was accommodating and flexible. The village of La Bastidonne is serene - it's a step back in time to walk through the narrow streets and say "Bonjour" to the friendly locals. There's a nice cafe and shop - we sadly didn't get to try out the local restaurant.
The location is perfect to check out the Luberon Valley in Provence. Each village is only 10-15 minutes drive/meander from the next, and there is so much character in each one. It's only 45min from Aix En Provence, an hour from the beach.
The house itself is nice - it stays cool during the hot summer days that we were staying. It's not 5-star accommodation, but it's comfortable and so full of character.
We hope to be back sometime in the future, and will definitely be recommending Annouk's house to any of our friends who might be travelling through France.
Thanks from 4 very relaxed and happy Australians!

Our stay at Annouk place was really enjoyable. The house is located in a very quiet village at the top of a hill in the middle of vineyards. Annouk was a welcoming host and she called us at mid-stay to make sure everything was alright. Much appreciated.
La Bastidonne is a very quiet and friendly village within a comfortable drive most attractions. The village itself has one restaurant and a small supermarket; however, they have restricted hours and often weren't open. This may well have been due to the time if year we were there - late Sept/early Oct, but it meant we spent more time in the car seeking what we hoped would be within within walking distance. Annouk's apartment has a distinct personality with an interesting and eclectic mix of furnishings. For those who seek a pristine/hotel style environment this would not suit. The sofa on the lounge is a converted futon that sits quite close to the ground so those with knee or back issues may want to consider this. Annouk was prompt and clear with all communication, it was just a pity she wasn't available to greet us at the start of our stay as it would have avoided many wasted hours at the local McDonalds thinking there was no wifi. We loved the front terrace covered in a fruit laden grape vine and access to a washing machine. If you are looking for somewhere very slow paced a d peaceful, this could be it.
It is a very lovely place to stay. It is a cozy old house in a very quite village. Annouk is very good in decorating. Even though she was not there we had a very nice, friendly and helpful neighbour (Laurence) who welcomed us in a very warmly way. We really felt good there.
We recommend very much the owner (Annouk), house (Dadigdone), place (La Bastidonne) and region (Luberon).
We were in three ( my wife, my daughter and me) and had a great time there. Simple but comfortable.
The breakfast and dinner & vine in the terrace, looking the grapes growing, will remain in our memories.
We have spent 10 days in Annouk’s place with our kids. It is a very charming, lovely and spacious house in the middle of the Provence area with a beautiful view on the mountains. La Bastidonne is a very quiet village, with friendly atmosphere far away from the highways’s traffic. It ’s an ideal choice if You wish to discover the Provence area. (or just to relax)
There is a beautiful small lake 10 minutes drive from the house, where You have chance for swimming and also You can have a good pizza there. (The service is very funny, You have to go there and see!) In the surrounding villages there are many castles to discover. We liked the landscape with all the vineyards and lavender plantation.
Annouk is very friendly, and helpful. She provided us many useful information, and she was always available in any case.
I would surely recommend Annouk’s house. It is perfect also for families with children.
The baguette and the croissant were excellent in the village supermarket, we could hardly wait for the shop to open in the morning!
We enjoyed our stay very much!

Annouk's house was charming! It has the perfect setting and is pretty well connected. The village was really perfect and all the people we met there were friendly. The house has all amenities. Annouk is full of information and the Pizza place she recommended was really awesome. I would recommend Annouk's place to anyone.
