At home in the Luberon

Practical details

At Home in the Luberon is a seven-night holiday from Saturday afternoon to the following Saturday morning.

Dates

Prices

These are for one person in a double room with a shared bathroom, in a two-person house $2800.

Some of the houses have three bedrooms. We try to be as flexible as possible, so if there are three friends who would like to share a house, but each have their own room, we can organise this at a special reduced rate. Please talk to us about possibilities.

We run the week's visit with a minimum of five and a maximum of eight guests.

Note: These costs are based on the Euro costs of the holiday. Should there be an extreme change in conversion rates dollars to euros (over 10%), we reserve the right to include these adjustments in the final price.

Almost all the costs of the holiday are included in the price, as follows:

You are responsible for transportation to and from the designated meeting points.

We offer French lessons and conversation over breakfast by a trained teacher for just $70 pp - we need a minimum of 4 people, so if you are interested please persuade your friends to take part.

Please note: As our visits are often in the countryside they may require up to a 10-minute walk, sometimes over rough terrain to the designated place. Please bring sneakers or other suitable footware. We can provide walking sticks!

Payments can either be made through International wire transfers or through one of the other transfer systems like Transferwise We also accept payment by Pay Pal, which allows you to pay by credit card.

Cancellation Fees

Our cancellation policy is applied consistently, but we try to be flexible and to make exceptions if there are strong family or health reasons for cancellation. For this reason we strongly recommend travel insurance that includes trip cancellation coverage to protect against financial loss due to certain cancellations and other trip interruptions. Insure My Trip is an excellent online resource to identify and purchase travel insurance that meets your personal needs.
