The story began with a dream… the dream of a family who discovered three old stone hamlets in the beautiful Luberon and who decided to restore them, to plant organic vines and fruit trees and to nurture the land with great love and respect.

The result is three beautifully restored stone hamlets spread out across 40 hectares of rolling hills and typical Provençal landscape. Le Hameau du Berger, Villa Les Terrasses and Le Hameau de l’Horizon.

Le Hameau de l’Horizon is a high quality, beautifully preserved hamlet with two swimming pools, a spa and tennis court, perched up on a hill with breath-taking views across the landscape to Mount Lure and the mauve coloured hills of the Grand Luberon. Up here it’s all about nature, peace and extraordinary calm.

The hamlet is set in 40 hectares surrounded by unspoilt landscape with charming gardens designed by Jean-Noël Capart, which were designed to be in perfect harmony with the site’s past and the traditions of its people. The tennis court and boules pitch amidst the lavender fields provide moments of pure and authentic relaxation…

The ‘upper house’ is surrounded by two beautifully furnished terraces with exceptional views, three en-suite bedrooms with large en-suite bathrooms, large living room with magnificent fireplace and a large kitchen with dining area.

The ‘lower house’ has a lovely shady terrace opening out onto a beautiful garden area near the swimming pool, three en-suite bedrooms and a charming Provençale summer kitchen with dining area.

A lovingly renovated mas has recently added an additional four en suite bedrooms to the estate as well as a spacious living room with a wonderful open fire, a beautiful kitchen and a dining room with space for everyone to meet for sociable feasts. In 2022 a second swimming pool will be added close to the mas whilst two further bedrooms will be found next to the brand new spa area with its hammam, gym, sauna and relaxation rooms.

Le Hameau de l’Horizon is an exceptional estate offering peace and quiet and a real feeling of being at one with nature and this truly beautiful part of France.

Viens is an ancient village with a medieval atmosphere boasting many original features including the clock tower and the two Maisons de Monier. Viens is located on the border of the Alpes de Haute Provence, the heart of the Luberon and surrounded by beautiful lavender fields, providing you with boundless activities and attractions for all the family.

Within the Luberon National park the charming villages and beautiful scenery offer an ideal setting for hiking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue. Many of the quint hilltop villages have maintained their original features with castles, caves and historical artefacts to discover, including one of the most spectacular at La Tour d’Aigues which still has its dungeons. Other activities include the Barben Zoo, Accrobranche and horse-riding.

The town of Apt, with its sprawling weekly market each Saturday and Tuesday is an unmissable trip. The town is 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 sweet smelling lavender surround you.

Le Hameau de l’Horizon is within close driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes and Roussillon. Famous Avignon, the capital of Provence, and Aix-en-Provence, one of France's most beautiful university towns, are only about 1hr30mins away from this Provencal hamlet.

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!

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since 2006

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The impression to be on the top of the world with view all around and on the same time such a peace, and the authenticity of the XVIIe S.'s hamlet.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The house was occupied by an old Italian family arriving from Naples in the 15th century, the family of Sinety, lord of Treymards.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Le Hameau de l'Horizon was once the property of a very famous French.
And we also had famous guests but we cannot say their names.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?
Colorado de Rustrel, Marchés d’Apt et Forcalquier
Really eat?
Les Brindilles de Melchio (dry and thin sausages) and Cheese “Banon AOP”
Really see?
Gorges d’Oppedette, Villages perchés, Abbaye de Valsaintes

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Coming in our houses is like going back a hundred years but with the comfort and luxury of today. No crowd and stress, only the light smell of the artisanal lavender distillery far away and the song of the locusts, with the freshness of the altitude.

Reviews

  • Fabulous!

    Posted by Sue on 22/09/2020

    Fabulous! Amazing views, decorated and maintained to a very high standard. Professionally managed. Accessible to all the key towns and villages of the area further down the valley but benefits from wide open spaces, calm and superb facilities on site.
    Many of Oliver’s Travels’ properties are privately owned and turned over to rental once the owners no longer have a use for them - as such they are full of character but sometimes a little tired. This property is a professionally run rental business, with a high level of investment and maintenance of the premises. First class!

  • Beautiful

    Posted by Sophie T. on 07/08/2020

    Beautiful place, very comfortable and delicious food.

  • Stunning property!

    Posted by Stuart on 02/07/2018

    Perfect place to get away from everything. Property itself has been beautifully restored and great for a big group to unwind and relax. Views of the Luberon from the terrace are stunning.

  • Stunning Villa and views

    Created on 02/05/2017

    Stunning farmhouse in the Luberon. The location was a little off the beaten track in the Luberon which made it even more delightful. Easy drive to top class restaurants on hill tops or in vineyards and great cycling / walking. Views from the villa and garden were beyond belief and the garden, pool and tennis court were beautifully maintained. We will go back for sure!

  • The hameau is a gem

    Posted by Martin F on 10/07/2016

    This little holiday to discover the Luberon was absolutely perfect. The Hameau is a gem, and the staff welcomed us in an impeccable manner. I must also give a special mention to Olivier who did everything, making this holiday an absolute success.

  • A slice of heaven

    Posted by Didier J on 12/05/2016

    A huge thank you to all the team for a marvellous holiday. We were indulged in this haven, with wonderful people, delicious meals, and a taste of the amazing organic produce cultivated on the estate. Completely self-sufficient, a real hope for the future!
