Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

In one of the region’s most unspoilt villages, surrounded by captivating wild landscapes, La Maison De Village is a true gem of the Luberon National Park.  Recently restored to a beautiful standard, this village house with its private heated swimming pool, offers a perfect place to relax in stunning surroundings.

This home is brought to you by the passionate family who also discovered three incredible old hamlets, planted organic vines and fruit trees and created three wonderful places to stay; Le Hameau du Berger, Le Hameau de L’Horizon and Villa Les Terrasses, all within a short drive of La Maison De Village.

Their latest renovation is no less beautiful, yet differs by its setting in a very small yet charming Provençal village which has retained its character over the years. The views from the house and the village itself are breath-taking with stunning scenery so typical of the Luberon region. This is a hiker’s paradise with walks from the village leading to marked trails near the spectacular gorges nearby.

Inside you are greeted with a homely ambience in the characterful living-dining room so full of warmth, especially as you sit by the open-fire on cooler evenings. The beautiful blue kitchen is a delight and the ideal place for keen chefs to create a Provençal feast. If you don’t wish to cook, why not have the very friendly staff of the owner’s nearby estate deliver freshly cooked food ready to be warmed up and served to you and your guests.

There are three bedrooms on the top two floors, each with their own bath or shower rooms, including a master bedroom with a lovely claw-foot bath in the ensuite. There’s also a separate studio just beside the main house featuring a twin bedroom and a cosy living area with a sofa-bed. Everything about the style of the home is tasteful and charming with beautiful furnishings and a true Provençal atmosphere.

If you can tear yourself away from the heated swimming pool and terraced gardens with mesmerising views, within a short drive you can be exploring medieval villages such as nearby Viens or Simiane-la-Rotonde, both surrounded by fields of lavender so typical of this area. Just a little further some of Provence’s most famous archetypal villages can be discovered such as Roussillon, Bonnieux, Ménerbes and Van Gogh’s precious Gordes or follow the art trail south to Cézanne’s beloved Aix-en-Provence, only a ninety-minute drive away.

La Maison de Village is a simply wonderful home offering perfect authenticity as well as real feeling of being at one with this truly beautiful part of France.

La Maison de Village is a beautiful house set in a little village surrounded by stunning countryside. Like many villages in the Luberon region, it has remained unchanged and is an incredibly charming place to wander around, soaking up the incredible views around you.

There is a wonderful walk from the village which leads to the surrounding gorges and you can follow various marked trails through or beside the gorges. There are many outstanding hikes in this area and beyond across the Luberon National Park.

Other nearby villages include medieval Viens (6.5km) with its historical features such as the clock tower and two Maisons de Monier and also Simiane-la-Rotonde (8.5km) with its medieval centre and cobbled lanes filled with summer flowers. Both villages are surrounded by lavender fields so typical of this captivating region.

The town of Apt, with its sprawling weekly market each Saturday and Tuesday is an unmissable trip: a gem full of charm and tradition with winding streets and ancient fountains. Indulge in the local cuisine and delicacies in one of the many pavement cafes with views of the Luberon and yet more sweet-smelling lavender surround you.

Another incredible village which has maintained its original features with castles, caves and dungeons is La Tour d’Aigues (38km). Other archetypal Provencal villages are also within driving distance such as Roussillon (36km), Bonnieux (40km), Lacoste (40km), Ménerbes (47km) and Van Gogh’s precious Gordes (45km).

Be inspired by the likes of Cezanne in Aix-en-Provence (70km), one of France’s most beautiful university towns or head north to Avignon (80km), the capital of Provence, both around a 90-minute drive away.

Within the Luberon National park the charming villages and beautiful scenery offer an ideal setting for hiking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue. Other activities include the Barben Zoo, Accrobranche and horse-riding. It also goes without saying that you can try some wonderful wines from the Luberon vineyards and sample some of the best authentic cuisine at one of the many excellent auberges or restaurants scattered across this region.

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!
