Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite Romantic

Sit back with a glass of Luberon rosé as you relax in your courtyard garden on a summer evening with a view towards the illuminated 12th century château, before wandering just down the lane to one of the village restaurants.

This beautifully renovated house with its own small swimming pool is in the heart of a charming Provençal village just a short drive from L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. It was once a silkworm factory, then a haybarn and 18th century wine cellar. More recently it has been exquisitely renovated into a stylish holiday home for up to 6 guests.

The interiors of air-conditioned Grange des Prairies are akin to a boutique-style abode. Step into the open-plan living space with its chic furnishings, Smart TV and open kitchen whilst each of the three pretty bedrooms has its own modern shower (there is also a fourth shower room just by the lounge). The characterful double upstairs is probably our favourite with its balcony and the most incredible vista over the rooftops towards Provence countryside.

It's such a privilege to have your very own tree-filled garden with a table for al-fresco dining by the plancha alongside deck chairs and sun loungers by the small swimming pool, just perfect for cooling off on warm summer afternoons.

Follow the steps down to your main entrance porch and walk straight into the village with a small handful of restaurants, a boulangerie, butchers, bar-tabac and small grocery store. A little further afield, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is just 6km away with its waterwheels, antique stores and famous Sunday morning brocante whilst Coustellet (5.5km) hosts a lovely Farmer’s market at the same time, also home to the Lavender Museum.

Discover the beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse before heading off on a hiking or canoeing excursion, visit the highly regarded winery and Musée de l'Huile d'Olive near Oppède, and potter around some of the Luberon’s idyllic perched villages such as Gordes, Ménerbes and Bonnieux. Try the summer cherries of Saint-Saturnin-lès-Apt, enjoy the Saturday morning market in Apt or venture to Maussane-les-Alpilles and Les Baux-de-Provence for some of France’s finest olive oil - this is such a fantastic location for exploring so much of Provence.

Grange des Prairies is in the heart of an old village in the Vaucluse department of Provence, just 33km from the historic city of Avignon and less than a 10-minute drive to Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Step out of your entrance porch and straight into the heart of this charming village with a couple of restaurants, boulangerie, butchers, bar-tabac and épicerie just a short walk away.

The picture-perfect town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (6km) is easily reached, often referred to as the “little Venice of Provence” with its bridges and waterwheels. Enjoy lunch by the riverside, potter around its little antique shops and don’t miss the wonderful Sunday morning market including one of France’s most famous brocantes.

Food-lovers note there are some great shops and a popular Farmer’s market on a Sunday morning in nearby Coustellet (5.5km), also home to the Lavender Museum and close to the Musée de l'Huile d'Olive (part of a highly regarded winery). You will find good-sized supermarkets in Coustellet and L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is a paradise for hiking enthusiasts with its incredible natural beauty whilst there are canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue as well as a tree-top activity centre and other child-friendly activities near the river (as always, seasonal opening times apply). Furthermore, the 18-hole course at Golf de Saumane is just over five minutes in the car.

Venture into the Luberon and discover lavender fields, cherry orchards, vineyards and woodland amongst some of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ including Gordes (12km), Ménerbes (13km) and red-hued Roussillon (21km). It’s a brilliant region for cycling, walking, wine-tasting or just wandering around the perched villages, especially on market day, and dining in excellent restaurants, many with magnificent Luberon views from their terraces. The Saturday morning market in Apt (29km) is the largest in the Luberon.

You are also well placed for the undulating scenery of Les Alpilles with the artistic town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (34km) just over half an hour away, and the pretty villages of Eygalières, Maussane-les-Alpilles and famous Les Baux-de-Provence all within an hour.

Merci encore pour cet agréable accueil, pour vos conseils pour découvrir la région et sa gastronomie.

  • The most beautiful place we've ever stayed in

    on 11/03/2023

    We’ve had an amazing time staying at Grange Des Prairies. The house looked liked a boutique hotel, was the most beautiful place we’ve ever stayed in. It was perfectly clean and included all the amenities needed. Every tiny detail was thought of! The village in which it’s located is very picturesque, it’s very peaceful and quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. The host was wonderful, always responsive. He came to check everything was okay and even provided us with recommendations on the area. Highly recommend!

  • Excellent

    on 25/02/2023

    Lieu très agréable, spacieux avec une piscine magnifique. Le propriétaire est aux petits soins avec ses convives.

  • Une belle découverte

    on 17/02/2023

    Cette magnifique demeure au cœur du vieux Lagnes était un vrai bonheur. La maison est une belle alliance entre l'ancien et le moderne. On s'y sent bien. Son merveilleux jardin arboré et verdoyant amène la sérénité dans cette oasis, la cascade du bassin une note de fraîcheur. Les couchers de soleil depuis la terrasse de l'étage furent des instants magiques. Nous rêvons d'y revenir. Je conseille vivement.
