A gorgeous villa in an idyllic setting, Chez Marie offers guests the opportunity to embrace the beauty of Provence whilst experiencing high-end comfort just a leisurely walk from the heart of a charming market village, 11km from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Once the childhood home of the welcoming owner, this stunning holiday villa has been beautifully renovated with grace and style. Downstairs, generous windows flood light into the open-plan living space whilst the contemporary kitchen leads out to a shaded terrace for al-fresco dining at its best. Four impressive bedrooms feature super king-size beds and private bathrooms whilst a cosy en suite twin can be found upstairs beneath the wood beams. Designer furnishings and works of art add to the splendour of this elegant villa and there is air-conditioning throughout.

Soak up the sun in the south-facing garden as you laze by the swimming pool, then prepare lunch in the magnificent pool house to enjoy under the towering pines. Take a stroll through the cypress trees and woodland, play a game of pétanque and create feasts using the Plancha-style barbecue, making the most of seasonal produce found at local Farmer’s markets.

Head to the nearby village for pretty fountains, restaurants and shops and appreciate its historic charm as you wander through its attractive lanes. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue also awaits with its antique shops, waterways and Sunday morning brocante whilst Fontaine-de-Vaucluse offers exceptional surroundings for hiking, tree-top adventures, canoeing and kayaking.

Spend the day exploring the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon, sample wine in the vineyards of the Rhône valley and visit atmospheric villages and towns steeped in history such as Vaison-la-Romaine and Orange. Then there’s the mesmerising landscapes of the Luberon, the lavender fields of Sault and the incredible foothills of Mont Ventoux, all quintessential experiences of this captivating part of Provence.

In the Vaucluse department of Provence, Chez Marie is located a leisurely stroll from a typical Provençal village around a 30-minute drive from Avignon.

Surrounded by pine forests and other villas dotted around, you can reach the local village in around 20 minutes on foot via country roads (no pavement) or it’s just a short drive. It’s such a charming place to spend time, much-loved for its fountains, beautiful architecture and weekly market showcasing the best regional produce including strawberries, cherries, pears, almonds, melons and asparagus. Look out for the seasonal Wednesday evening Farmer’s market as well.

The Sunday morning market in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (11km) is also a delight, especially its atmospheric brocante, one of the best in France. On any day of the week, spend time exploring the small town’s waterwheels, little bridges, antique stores and galleries. Continue to Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (16km), the source of the Sorgue river and an idyllic place for canoeing, kayaking and other outdoor adventures.

There are so many other characterful market villages and towns across the Vaucluse as well as ample opportunities for hiking, horse-riding and cycling. Head to the foothills of Mont Ventoux and visit Bédoin (22km), a mecca for cyclists, or travel slightly further afield to Sault (45km), especially beautiful during lavender season.

The Luberon region of Provence also awaits with some of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ such as Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes (25km), idyllic Ménerbes (30km) and the red-hued perched village of Roussillon (37km). Cycle or hike through landscapes of orchards, woodland and vineyards, sample AOC Luberon wines and dine in atmospheric village restaurants with the most stunning views.

Avignon (27km) is another fine day out, set on the banks of the Rhône and home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Palais des Papes and Pont d’Avignon. Food and wine lovers will adore the numerous markets, wine-bars and restaurants scattered across this small historic city in 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!

There are various family attractions and activities scattered across the Vaucluse department and beyond.

Parc Spirou Provence is a popular theme park around a 15-minute drive away with a variety of rides and three rollercoasters, usually open mid-June to early September. It’s next door to the waterpark, Wave Island, known for its many slides. Furthermore, young train enthusiasts may enjoy a trip to Le Jarditrain, just 7km by car, an open-air model railway centre.

Other activities across the region include walking, horse-riding, rock-climbing (in the Luberon or Les Alpilles) and cycling – there are several appealing trails depending on your ability, including some wonderful family-friendly routes into the Luberon.

Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy spending time in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse with its tree-top adventure centre as well as canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the beautiful Sorgue river. Alternatively, in the foothills of Mont Ventoux, Ventoux Aventure offers further tree-top adventures and an escape game.

  • Unforgettable stay

    Posted by Anonymous on 30/08/2022

    A big thank you to the whole team for this unforgettable stay! The villa is incredible, decorated with taste. Beautiful outdoor space. We appreciated all the equipment in the kitchen and the barbecue area with its grill. We went with 2 families but you can definitely stay with 3. The room was very spacious, bright and the bedding was top notch! This is the 3rd villa we have rented and the service is always impeccable. The staff are always smiling, helpful and available. Thank you for the sunny holiday and see you soon.

    Freshly renovated house, as pleasant inside as outside. The pine trees in the vicinity allow us to enjoy the surrounding cicadas. Excellent stay.
