We are 2 couples driving around the Luberon Valley. This picturesque bed and breakfast seemed to be a picture from the past. We had 2 rooms and were pleasantly surprised to have access to a kitchen and dining room that we made use of each of the 6 evenings we stayed here. Our room was on the 3rd (and top)...

We experienced the most appalling treatment from these owners, I am still shocked by it. After several emails to the owners through booking.com (and before confirming our booking) we were assured our late arrival to the property would be no problem. Our train arrived in Avignon at 9pm and we expected to arrive at Memoires du Sud at around 10.30pm...

We don't accept blackmail! Your comments are the of your behavior: excessive, aggressive, violent and deceitful. Your words are defamatory. From your point of view, the customer is allowed to do anything he wants: arriving at any hour of the night, waking up the other guest and threatening to send ahateful comment in case of refusal. The next morning you...

My husband and I were taking a trip to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Everything was planned and paid for in advance. Our time in Provence was meant to be spent in a Gite on the other side of the Luberon Valley. The Owner of the Gite turned out to be not so reputable. We found ourselves in Provence...

We spent three nearly perfect nights here in July 2014. This B&B is in a lovely and very old building which once served as a silk mill. The site is gorgeous with spreading vista of the Luberon country side. If you are there in July you'll see fields of lavender in the valley. Rooms were attractive and comfortable. The B&B...

We spent one night there with our four children during a biking tour of the Luberon area. The couple who hosted us was eager to please.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An old silkworm farm back to Louis xIv, « Mémoires du sud » belongs to those superb, sturdy, massive residences built to last and defy the centuries. The Provencal shutters and the charming old items collected around the world, recreate this atmosphere of Old time houses. Facing the Grand Luberon mountain range and overlooking its valley, the wide terrace welcomes you, as the pool, hidden in the nature, down the hill. We propose you 5 rooms where warm colors and antique furniture compose a charming marriage between past and present. To complete our offer, a studio can be rented per night or per week. You will have your breakfast under the shady bower, while admiring the Luberons’ superb and appeasing landscape. What a pleasure to relax on the terrace in the evening, enjoying a drink and watching the sunset! ... more   less
