L'Oustalado is a light and spacious first floor apartment with the main entrance being reached via a short stairway to the side of the building which leads onto the balcony. The accommodation is on the first floor and comprises two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other twin beds, a large lounge/dining room, kitchen and shower room with separate toilet. All rooms have lovely views of the Luberon Valley or of the old village of Maubec.
The property has a beautiful south facing secluded garden which has a shady al fresco eating area as well as a private heated swimming pool which is kept at a comfortable 26-27˚C throughout the season. The garden is secure making it difficult for pets and children to wander off and has parking for up to two cars.
The kitchen is equipped with an oven with gas and electric hob, a washer/dryer, dishwasher and a good size fridge/freezer plus coffee machine, kettle and microwave. All cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and glassware are provided.
All beds have Egyptian cotton bed linen, towels are provided and there is also an iron and ironing board.
There is wireless broadband throughout the property and the living area has a TV with French terrestrial and UK internet channels, we have also installed Sonos equipment in the lounge\diner, kitchen & barbecue area, these are linked to a Spotify account to enable you to play almost any music that has ever been written!. There are shutters on all windows to keep the house cool in summer and a woodburning stove in the living area along with electric radiators for the winter.
Although we feel that the property is ideally suited for 4 people there is a double sofa bed in the lounge which can be used if required to accommodate a further 2 people, there is also a travel cot at the property that visitors with young children are welcome to use.
The property is located at the edge of the old town of Maubec and is two minutes walk from the woods of the Luberon making it perfectly situated for a walking or cycling holiday with cycle routes and treks being located close by. There are two delightful restaurants, a bar, two boulangeries and local shops within ten minutes walk and nearby Coustellet has a supermarket as well as a wonderful farmers market every Sunday where, amongst other things, local farm produce can be purchased
We bought L'Oustalado in September 2014 after first seeing the property when travelling in the area in May, we have spent the last few years travelling around various parts of France in our VW Campervan (not an old classic one I am afraid!) and usually travelled back home via the Luberon area of France, we realised however that the area we usually sped through on the way home was one of the areas that we should spend more time exploring!
After seeing the property we realised that it was perfect for us and our two dogs having an enclosed walled garden and being within a couple of minutes of the woods of the Luberon which are ideal for long (or short) walks, with or without dogs!
