Overview

Maison Achard, a holiday villa in Provence, is ideal for history lovers. The house, built between the 14th and 16th centuries, has been restored to preserve its beautiful architectural elements, including mullioned windows, fireplaces, beams and a stone spiral staircase. This hillside property also includes an expansive terraced garden and a 10x5m swimming pool with diving fossa set in a stone courtyard.

On the home’s ground level, you’ll find a modern kitchen, a bathroom and a dining room with wooden shutters and beamed ceiling. The first floor holds two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room with medieval fireplace, terracotta floors and a TV. The top floor is a spacious bedroom with a 360 degree view of the Provencal hills, a private bathroom and a large terrace.

Dine outside under a vine-covered trellis, and enjoy a summer kitchen with barbecue. When you’re ready to explore the Luberon, you can walk to Oppede le Vieux, a charming hilltop village with a historic church and ruins. Stay active by hiking and mountain biking, or drive to Cavaillon’s (9 km) weekly market, famous for melons.

Reach Maison Achard via the Avignon train station (35km), Marseilles airport (65 km) or A7 motorway (15 km).

What Oliver loves…

  • You’re two minutes walk from Oppede le Vieux, one of the oldest and most stunning villages in the Luberon.
  • The pool set in a stone courtyard is a beautiful and relaxing place.
  • Climb the stairs in the terraced garden for an amazing view and shaded lunch areas.

What you should know…

  • Because of this house’s unique layout and steps, it’s not the best place for young children or people with reduced mobility.
  • There is a small adjoining house.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

The 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!
