Be enchanted by the views of the Luberon from your swimming pool and Provençal garden at this beautiful bastide within walking distance of a pretty village and restaurants.

A short drive from Oppède le Vieux and Ménerbes, Bastide Fougere sleeps up to 16 guests across its seven air-conditioned bedrooms. Downstairs there is a great sense of space with an open-plan living area, TV lounge, entertaining space with pool table and a glass conservatory. There are gorgeous views of the Luberon hills from your light-filled kitchen with doors opening out to the al-fresco dining terrace.

Every bedroom has been styled individually, each with a private bath or shower room (some open-plan), many with yet more glorious views. Six of the bedrooms feature king-size doubles whilst the seventh bedroom is a quad with four single beds (which can be joined together as doubles). One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor with doors leading to the courtyard and fountain.

Outside, the garden is vast with cypress trees, summer lavender, pretty terraces and shady trees. The S-shaped heated swimming pool has a shallow plage on one end, just perfect for splashing around and paddling, whilst there are poolside sun loungers positioned to make the most of the idyllic surroundings. A sun room offers more space to relax (and energetic young guests can enjoy a game of ping pong).

Stroll along the country road to the nearby village, around 1.5km away, for your morning croissants and bread. There are two restaurants and an épicerie for your groceries or drive to nearby Coustellet for more foodie shops, a supermarket and a lovely Sunday morning Farmer’s market.

A short drive away are two of the Luberon’s iconic perched villages, Oppède le Vieux and Ménerbes, both picture-perfect places to soak up the historic charm and stunning scenery. Other Luberon gems include Gordes, Bonnieux and Roussillon whilst the handsome town of Apt hosts a wonderful Saturday morning market, the largest in the region.

Meanwhile, canoe along the Sorgue river near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, experience the famous brocante in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of historic Avignon, around a 45-minute drive away.

You could even venture to the landscapes of Les Alpilles with Eygalières only half an hour by car, or stay closer to home and experience the Luberon at its best as you walk, hike or cycle past vineyards, orchards, lavender fields and perched villages in this captivating part of Provence.

Bastide Fougere is located just outside a small Provençal village in the Luberon region of Provence, a short drive from Ménerbes and Oppède le Vieux and 36km from the historic city of Avignon.

You can stroll along the country road (no pavement) to the local village (1.5km) with its bakery, épicerie (grocery store) and a couple of restaurants. For further amenities including good-sized supermarkets, artisan food shops and a lovely Sunday morning Farmer’s market, Coustellet (6.5km) is a 10-minute drive away.  

Some of the Luberon’s iconic perched villages are easily reached including idyllic Ménerbes (4.5km) made famous by Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’. Discover medieval lanes, restaurant terraces with beautiful views and pretty shops alongside an atmospheric Thursday morning market. A similar distance away, step back in time as you explore the dramatic village of Oppède le Vieux (4.5km) with its cobbled streets and stunning views.

Elsewhere, potter around the charming village of Gordes (11.5km) so loved by writers and artists including Van Gogh, and venture to the red-hued landscapes of Roussillon (16km) – both hilltop villages are classified as ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ in France.

The Saturday morning market in the handsome town of Apt (22km) is the largest in the region – look out for candied fruit, summer cherries, extra virgin olive oil and good Luberon wine as well as many other local delights. There are ample opportunities to sample wine and olive oil across the Luberon and neighbouring Les Alpilles.

Beyond the Luberon, seek out treasures at the Sunday morning brocante in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (17km), an enchanting town any day of the week with its antique stores, waterways and riverside restaurants. Furthermore, soak up the natural beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (17km), a paradise for hikers and outdoor adventurists. Canoeing/kayaking along the Sorgue river is another wonderful experience in this part of Provence.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

This part of Provence awaits with a wealth of outdoor activities for families with children. As well as a pool table and ping-pong at the bastide, there is a tennis court in the local village just 1.5km away.

Discover canoeing and kayaking along the Sorgue River near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse alongside a great tree-top adventure centre with trails for a range of ages (3+ depending on height). Back in the Luberon, Colorado Aventures near Roussillon is another accrobranche centre for young adventurists. Meanwhile, animal lovers may enjoy a day out at Zoo Barben, just under an hour away towards Aix-en-Provence.  

The Luberon region offers wonderful opportunities for walking, hiking and cycling. La Véloroute du Calavon is a family-friendly voie-verte following the Calavon river between Les Beaumettes and Saint-Martin-de-Castillon. It is mainly car-free and passes beautiful landscapes.
