Walk to Village

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 three bedrooms, two bathrooms 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).

Oliver Approved

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 which belongs to the owner but is uninhabited.

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

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!
