Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Parking Space

This picture-perfect villa with pretty blue shutters and glorious Luberon views from its swimming pool is just outside the perched village of Roussillon, officially classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Set on a hillside in spacious grounds, Maison Cocteau is a beautiful home for your holiday in Provence. The interiors have been styled with contemporary flair yet still exude an abundance of charm with tiled flooring and windows framing those garden and valley vistas. The villa sleeps up to 6 guests across a twin and two queen-size doubles, each featuring their own bath or shower room.

Outside, relax back with a glass of Luberon wine surrounded by the aroma of summer roses as you gaze out towards the hills and there are more wonderful views to be enjoyed from the swimming pool which elegantly wraps itself around an ancient olive tree. Dine al-fresco in the shade of the covered terrace and make the most of the natural and calming environment that surrounds this inviting home.

It's a short drive up the country road towards Roussillon, such an incredible perched village surrounded by the famous ochre cliffs and pine trees. Admire the village’s gorgeous red-hued houses, dine out in an atmospheric restaurant and experience the ambience of the Thursday morning market. Follow one of the marked trails from the village, Le Sentier des Ocres, or hike further afield towards the equally impressive Le Colorado de Rustrel – the Luberon is a paradise for keen walkers.

Potter around other iconic villages of the Luberon from Ménerbes and Bonnieux to Gordes, venture to the lavender fields of Sault in the foothills of Mont Ventoux, visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon and the antique stores of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Aix-en-Provence also awaits for an enchanting day out or stay closer to home to walk or cycle through glorious Luberon landscapes of olive trees, vineyards, woodland and cherry orchards in this captivating region of Provence.

Maison Cocteau enjoys the most wonderful views of the Luberon valley, set on a hillside within walking distance from the idyllic village of Roussillon.

Roussillon is officially classified as one of France’s 'Plus Beaux Villages' and it is well known for its ochre-coloured houses, perched on the ridge of a red-hued cliff. You can follow the country road up to the village (no pavement until you reach the village’s approach) in around 1.6km, admiring towering pine trees and verdant landscapes as you ascend. Wander into the historic heart of the village; it’s an incredible place to explore and boasts several restaurants and the most stunning views. The weekly market takes place on a Thursday morning.

Keen walkers can appreciate the beautiful scenery by following one of the two marked paths through the dusty red cliffs, Le Sentier des Ocres, and there are even more challenging hikes near the village and beyond towards Le Colorado de Rustrel. The Luberon also offers some fantastic cycling opportunities, rock-climbing near Buoux and of course wine-tasting across Luberon vineyards and wineries, especially close to Ménerbes and Lourmarin.

Indeed, Ménerbes (15km) is another picture-perfect village to explore, made especially famous by Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’, as are the iconic perched villages of Bonnieux (12km), Lacoste (12km) and Gordes (11km). Look out for inviting restaurant terraces, pretty markets and a wealth of historic charm surrounded by woodland, cherry orchards and vineyards below. The historic town of Apt (12km) hosts a fantastic Saturday morning market showcasing all sorts of regional delights, the largest market in the region.

Discover yet more of Provence whether you choose to spend the day in Aix-en-Provence (63km), perhaps stopping off in Lourmarin (24km) en route, or follow Van Gogh’s footsteps in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (51km) with its art galleries and atmospheric Wednesday morning market.

The UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon (47km) are only an hour away by car or venture north to the foothills of Mont Ventoux and the lavender fields of Sault (34km). Not forgetting the gorgeous town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (26km) and the hiking, canoeing and kayaking opportunities around Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (26km).

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The ochre cliffs and red-hued houses of nearby Roussillon are fascinating – if children can manage lots of steps then follow one of the two marked trails from the village through the dusty red cliffs as long as they are wearing decent trainers (that may turn a shade of ochre!).

Elsewhere, keep children occupied by spending the day at a tree-top activity centre near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse with trails for various ages (age 3+ depending on height). Fontaine-de-Vaucluse also offers canoeing and kayaking along the Sorgue River and other summer activities including mini-golf and the little amusement park, Nestor le Castor, with inflatables and rides.

Heading towards Carpentras and Avignon, discover the caves at Grottes de Thouzon and spend the day at the summer waterpark, Wave Island, or the theme park, Parc Spirou Provence. Avignon itself is a lovely day out and a little tourist road train tours the main sights.
