Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Laptop Friendly Workspace Wheelchair Access Parking Space

Set within an expansive, landscaped garden filled with tall trees and lush green planting you will find Le Voyageur. This welcoming home is located on the outskirts of a charming village which is nestled at the foothills of the stunning Luberon mountain range, making it the perfect place to stay to experience the countryside and villages of Provence.

The home has a pretty exterior with pastel coloured paint work and typically Provençal window shutters. Indoors, the two floors are connected by stairs and a lift, making it accessible for those with mobility issues or elderly guests. 

On the ground floor there is an open-plan kitchen and dining room which boasts all of the appliances you could need for preparing a delicious meal. The dining table looks out over the lovely garden and is adjacent to the kitchen, creating a social environment for cooking or enjoying a drink together in the evening. Down the hall there is a cosy lounge room which can be used as a bedroom when utilising the double sofa bed. The ground floor is also where you can find the sauna which is a great spot for unwinding after a busy day of sight-seeing.

Upstairs there are two spacious double bedrooms and a single bedroom as well as a large living space with comfy sofas, a fireplace, TV and well stocked book shelves. This first floor living room also has a balcony with unrivalled views of the surrounding landscape.

Stepping outdoors you will discover large landscaped grounds with lawned areas, shady trees and shrubbery. There is plenty of outdoor seating and a large dining table on the terrace so that you can cook on the barbecue and eat al-fresco on a warm summer's evening. The garden also boasts a private swimming pool which has a cover to keep little ones safe. 

If you wish to head out for dinner or a few drinks then you are within walking distance (along country roads) of the village centre which has a few restaurants, a bakery and a bar as well as tennis courts.

You can find more shops and eateries as well as staggering panoramic views 1km up the side of the mountain in the old village of Oppède le Vieux which was settled over 1000 years ago but was abandoned when villagers moved down the hill to the newer village of Oppède. Since WW2, when a group of artists moved back up to Oppède le Vieux, it has sprung back to life but even today it looks as if it has been untouched for centuries and feels in parts like a ghost town. If you choose to visit you can see the old defensive walls, the castle ruins and historic churches or simply dine in the village square which is lit by twinkling fairy lights in the evening.

This area is filled with lots of other villages and towns you can visit such as Ménerbes which is 5km away or the gorgeous red-coloured village of Roussillon which is 18km away. There are also woodlands, hiking and cycling routes and protected parklands for you to visit close to the villa for relaxed days out in nature.

Le Voyageur is the perfect base for getting to know an authentic side of Provence. With pretty villages which are off the usual tourist trails plus vast natural parks with mountain paths for cycling or long walks, this is a lovely place to stay for a relaxed break with family or friends.

As the home is located on the outskirts of a little village, you are in walking distance of tennis courts, a bar, bakery and a few great restaurants. Having these amenities so close is really handy for when you wish to have a lazy day by the pool followed by an easy meal out without taking the car and looking for parking.

There is also another village nearby called Oppède le Vieux. History lovers will be fascinated by the rich history of the village, which was settled for over 1000 years before the majority of its population left it behind in the 17th century to move down to flatter more hospitable land. For over 300 years the village lay empty and it is only in the past century that an artistic community has formed here and brought a new lease of life to the village. The medieval and Renaissance homes and shops have been restored and a number of little cafes now line the atmospheric square and offer unbelievable views over the plains of the Vaucluse below. Today visitors can wander the cobbled streets and visit the attractions which include old wash houses, a 12th century church, the ruins of the castle and the defensive ramparts.

Aside from hilltop villages and wide-open spaces, Provence also has a number of bustling towns and cities which you could visit. One of these is called Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and is 31km away. This is a gorgeous town with a wide range of shops, markets and restaurants and is also known as a hub for artists.

After getting to know the layout of the town, spend some time at some of the key attractions such as the 11th-century Saint-Paul-de-Mausole monastery, which is an impressive building but is also known for being the home of artist Vincent van Gogh. During a difficult year spent living he produced over 100 paintings. As you wander around this lovely town you will spot lots of buildings or sights which feature in many of his works.

If you wish to spend a full day here then a great way to get your bearings is to take a guided tour around town where a local guide can shop you the key sights as well as some hidden gems. There are lots of tours available to book based on your interests, including history, art or food tours. You can also book on to wine or lavender tours which take you outside of town to family run farms and vineyards. 

If you would like to see some of Provence’s sweeping coastline then why not drive down to Plage de Saint Croix. which will take you around an hour and ten minutes (95km)? This is just one of the countless beaches along this coast that you could visit and has clear water and white sand making it perfect for a day of relaxing in the sun. Nearby there are lots of places to have dinner after spending the day at the beach before you drive back, so you can enjoy a full day here comfortably.

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!

The Luberon in Provence is a wonderful place for a family trip; kids can run free here, making the most of the ancient woodlands, mountain hiking trails and limestone bouldering routes. Without going very far you can spend plenty of time enjoying the natural environment and making memories, before heading to a sleepy hilltop village for dinner.

For an extra special day trip why not take the children on a hot air balloon ride over the Luberon, the Ochre valley and the miles of lavender fields. These rides usually set off early to make the most of the staggering morning views. Children and adults alike will be enchanted by a balloon ride through this breathtaking region.
