Le Bosquet is in a peaceful and idyllic setting with fine views across the vineyards towards Ansouis castle. Here you are in the south of the Luberon with its exquisite villages, springtime cherry blossom and scented summer lavender bathed in the special Provençal light which inspired so many famous French artists.

The house is set within three wonderful acres of land with cherry orchards, oak woods and olive trees just perfect for a tranquil ramble. There is also plenty of inside space for eight guests and the home has retained its cosy atmosphere, traditional warm colours and exposed wooden beams.

The well equipped kitchen leads to the dining and living rooms, all opening out to the terrace and pool. Two comfortable en-suite bedrooms are on the ground floor while one of the three bedrooms upstairs has a wonderful view across the vineyards to Ansouis.     

There are plenty of lounging and dining areas on the large vine shaded terrace at the front of the house and beneath the mulberry trees a few steps away from the swimming pool - at the side of the house is a beautiful tree canopied boules court.

Le Bosquet is ideally situated just a short drive from two exquisite villages. Ansouis is one of “Les Plus Beaux Villages” in France, with a bar, bakery, grocery, Sunday morning market and ancient castle. Cucuron is famous for its Bassin, a large pool of water in the main square shaded by ancient plane trees and both villages have Michelin starred restaurants that may just tempt you away from your terrace views chez vous.

Nearby Lourmarin is one of the best loved places in the Luberon, more exquisite villages like Lacoste and Bonnieux can be found further north or you might want to explore westwards into Les Alpilles or head south to sun-drenched Aix-en-Provence.

Locally there are so many activities to enjoy - swimming, kayaking, hiking, cycling, horse riding and rock climbing all within the magnificent landscapes of the Luberon. Whatever you decide to do, you will love returning to the comfort and tranquillity of your home in the country.

Le Bosquet is in a peaceful rural location surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and orchards near the delightful village of Ansouis in the southern Luberon, only 33km north of Aix-en-Provence.

Ansouis is officially one of the “most beautiful villages” in France, with a Michelin starred restaurant, Sunday morning market, ancient castle and a couple of interesting museums.

Nearby Cucuron, only 4km by car, is best known for its Bassin, a large pool of water in the main square shaded by ancient plane trees, making this a delightful place to sit in the shade with a coffee. Gastronomers should note that there is yet another Michelin starred restaurant to be found here! Streets and houses wind upwards to the castle with fine views over Mont-Saint-Victoire and the many hectares of farmland producing the melons, olives ,cherries and the fine Côtes  du Luberon wines to be found in Cucuron’s Tuesday morning market.

Nestled beneath the hills is yet another of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, Lourmarin, whose winding streets are full of boutiques and galleries, restaurants and cafés. Highlights are the bustling Friday morning market, concerts at the mystical 15th century castle and Albert Camus being its most famous resident.

Drive northwards through glorious wooded hills to discover more exquisite Luberon villages such as Lacoste, Bonnieux and Ménerbes. The lovely University town of Aix-en-Provence is only 33km to the south or venture further north to Avignon with its fine historic treasures.

Hikers of all abilities will enjoy the pretty vineyard trails or try the Gorges de Régalon for a greater challenge and cyclists will love the tranquil rides between idyllic villages - the Pays d’Aigues circuit covers some of the southern Luberon villages and towns. Admire the landscapes of olive groves, cherry and almond trees from the back of a horse, hire a canoe on the river Durance or head to the beautiful gorge at Buoux for a spot of rock-climbing.

Locals take summer swims or walk through the pine forests at the picturesque Étang de la Bonde, only 8km away. The less adventurous may just prefer the leisurely trip around the Luberon vineyards sampling some of the excellent wines – there are couple of especially good wine châteaux close to Lourmarin.

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Children will love the opportunities for so many outdoor activities in the Luberon. It’s always wonderful to go cycling, horse-riding and mountain biking in spectacular landscapes. More memories can be created by swimming at Etang de la Bonde, canoeing along the river Durance or visiting the tree-top activity centre at La Tour D’Aigues.

Train lovers might want to make the longer journey to the model railway, the JardiTrain, just south of Carpentras while animal lovers are sure to appreciate Zoo La Barben, a little closer to home, with over 600 species of animals.

The tourist road-train and museums in Aix-en-Provence are great for a family day out and the little ones will have fun on the Paul Cézanne carousel in the centre of town with its decorated ponies, mermaids and murals.

Reviews

  • Well equipped and charming villa in lovely surroundings

    on 25/06/2017

    A charming villa set within spacious grounds and well situated in easy reach of Ansouis and Cucuron. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of good eating areas. We were relieved to have air conditioning in bedroom on first floor as weather was very hot. Great to be able to use bikes!
