Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

In the heart of the mesmerising Luberon National Park, just a five-minute drive from an idyllic provençal village, Maison Basque is a delightful stone house full of charm and character.

Inside you are greeted with a warm ambience with traditional Provençal features in every room from wood-beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and cool tiled floors. Styled with rustic elegance, the open-plan living space is dominated by a glorious open fireplace and age-old dining table, perfect for feasts prepared in the cosy kitchen. There are three sweet bedrooms and bathrooms, including a spacious master room upstairs, accessed via its own stone staircase outside.

The gardens are the perfect place to relax, enjoying lunch by the roses or lazing on the lawns before dipping into the fabulous swimming pool. With Provençal scents and colours around you, the outside space is a charming place to spend quality time with loved ones.

The local village is just a five-minute drive away: beautifully preserved, with winding narrow lanes filled with fine restaurants, pavement cafes and little shops. Located on a hill, it is surrounded by glorious countryside filled with vineyards and olive groves. There are some amazing hiking paths and mountain bike routes nearby or you may just prefer to sample excellent wines in one of the many local wineries.

Some of the most idyllic villages are within a twenty-minute drive such as Bonnieux, Lacoste, Roussillon and Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes whilst foodies should head up to Apt on a Saturday morning to experience one of the region’s most famous markets. For a longer day out, the amazing cities of Avignon or Aix-en-Provence can be reached within an hour, both incredibly picturesque places to visit in Provence.

Here in the Luberon National Park, you are in an area of outstanding beauty and Maison Basque is the most welcoming and lovely abode from which to experience this mesmerising part of Provence.

Maison Basque is located just a five-minute drive north (2km) of a delightful and beautifully preserved village. Many say this is one of the most picturesque places in France.

Located on a hill, it is surrounded by glorious countryside filled with vineyards and olive groves. Explore the village’s narrow lanes that wind up the hill, discovering little shops and restaurants, then enjoy breathtaking vistas on the way up to the village square at the top. The village boasts some impressive places to eat, from traditional restaurant to charming cafes with outstanding views.

There are some spectacular hiking paths and mountain bike routes (mountain bike hire is possible nearby). Indeed, the Luberon National Park offers an ideal setting for walking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue. There are climbing opportunities near Buoux (23km), a tiny village with a castle not to be missed and now a mecca for rock-climbing. Wine lovers will appreciate all the amazing wineries in the local area whilst more family friendly activities include horse-riding and tree-top activity centres nearby plus a zoo and model railway both within an hours drive.

Many of the idyllic 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 (42km) which still has its dungeons.

You are also within close driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux (12km), Lacoste (9km), Roussillon (15km) and Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes (15km), one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages.

Food lovers should also head to the Luberon town of Apt (24km) on a Saturday morning for its incredible Provençal market, one of the most famous in the region and well known for its local products especially candied fruits and goats cheese. The old town has a lot of charm and character and the surrounding hills are typical of beautiful Provence.

Famous Avignon (38km), the capital of Provence, and Aix-en-Provence (65km), one of France's most beautiful university towns, are just over an hour away.

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!

Provence is a wonderful place for families with kids of all ages. There is a wealth of characterful villages, towns and cities to discover across the region. Explore Avignon by the little road-train that takes you across the city including the Pont d'Avignon or take a boat trip across the Rhone. Visit a typical Provençal market and try some amazing new foods or simply wander around charming villages soaking up the atmosphere and admiring artists at work.

Create memories by kayaking along the Sorgue or hire canoes by the magnificent Pont du Gard, near Nimes. This part of Provence also offers wonderful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding in the area.

Young and old train lovers alike will adore the model railway, the JardiTrain, just south of Carpentras or the more adventurous can discover the fantastic Tree-Top activity centres in the Luberon, Nimes or Salon-de-Provence. Animal lovers should head to Zoo Barben with over 600 species of animals across several hectares of land.
