Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Parking Space

Maison Des Amoureux is a lovely little haven where you will truly relax in the rich Luberon countryside. It offers two delightful bedrooms and gorgeous open plan living with a touch of contemporary flair as well as a little rustic charm. This little gem is located between two charming villages, Lacoste and Menerbes.

Maison Des Amoureux is built on one level with open plan living space. At the heart of the house is a very striking, chef’s dream of a kitchen. All in stainless steel, it is inspiring and the perfect place to create some culinary wonders. There is a separate laundry area in the garage with a washing machine and dryer. This wonderful house has undergone a fantastic, high-quality renovation. As well as little ancient reminders, this house enjoys contemporary flair and some modern furnishings. The living area is bright, airy and spacious. It boasts a feature fireplace at one end together with a comfy modern sofa, bean bags and a television. The dining table sits in between the living area and kitchen. French doors open to the south facing terrace where you can enjoy alfresco dining.

Guests sleep in two bedrooms. The master offers a comfy kingsize bed, minimalist styling, a dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with a bath and walk-in shower. Again, it feels modern, bright and airy. The second bedroom can be set up as a twin room or with a super kingsize bed. With calm, neutral tones it is also beautifully presented. Guests staying in this room use the family bathroom with its shower.

The gardens of Maison Des Amoureux are beautiful. There are some wonderful shady spots for alfresco dining or relaxing with your holiday book, an excellent swimming pool, gorgeous lawns, colourful planting and a boules court for some friendly competition. The swimming pool is surrounded by a terrace sprinkled with loungers and seating plus there is a handy outdoor shower. The mature garden is blessed with lavender, rosemary, oleander, box, pines, olive trees and plenty of colour. There is one off-street parking space with lots of free parking on the street if you have more than one car. Maison Des Amoureux is a great pick from where you will return feeling refreshed and relaxed. 

Just over a mile from the house is Lacoste, a picturesque village in the Petit Luberon region of Provence between the villages of Menerbes and Bonnieux. Lacoste is best known for the castle of the Marquis de Sade, now belonging to Pierre Cardin, which dominates the village. This beautifully preserved village enjoys amazing views over the Luberon valley and enjoys a few gastronomic restaurants and the Café de France with its grandstand view of the hilltop perched Bonnieux. Just five minutes from the house, Menerbes is also very pretty, surrounded by vineyards and also offering spectacular panorama. It is blessed with excellent restaurants, a few shops and a market on Thursday mornings. Art exhibitions and a classical music festival give this quaint village a soothing buzz during the hot summer months. Maison Des Amoureux is an excellent base to explore Provence, its views, its wineries and its fantastic dining scene.

Maison Des Amoureux enjoys a lovely countryside setting between the two charming villages of Lacoste and Ménerbes and close to Bonnieux.

The pretty Lacoste enjoys a Tourist Office which can be quite handy, the Church of Saint Trophime in the Place de l’Eglise and a good selection of restaurants. The church retains some of its original Roman style but has been transformed over the centuries. There is an original stone gateway into the village, built in the 14th century and then rebuilt in the 16th century called La Porte de la Garde. You pass through this onto a narrow cobbled street that winds through the village. Almost every building will catch your eye for its beauty. This village is truly authentic. At the top of the village you reach Le Chateau de Lacoste, once home to the Marquis de Sade and now home to Pierre Cardin. The chateau is sometimes used for events. Cafe de France enjoys a spectacular hanging terrace with stunning views. You will be captivated by the jumble of ornately decorated doors and intriguing architectural details in this picturesque village.

Menerbes is another charmer that emerges from a sea of cherry orchards and vineyards. It is a beautiful perched village with a handful of restaurants, a cafe with a phenomenal views, a wonderful bakery, an ice cream parlour and a Thursday morning market. Menerbes was on the world tourist map in the 1990’s when Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’ was published. Exquisitely poised over the Luberon valley, it is easy to see what the fuss was about. The Maison de la Truffe et du Vin sits in the Place de l’Horloge at the top of the town where you can find out about the truffles and wines in the region. Just outside Menerbes is the Musee du Tir-Bouchon, a corkscrew museum with over 1000 corkscrews. It is also a very high-tech winery, Domaine de la Citadelle.

Nearby, Bonnieux is an Instagram worthy Provencal gem full of beautifully preserved buildings and delightful restaurants, cafes and shops. With west facing views over the valley, it is a gorgeous spot. You will be mesmerised by the patchwork of orchards and vineyards towards Lacoste across the Vaucluse plateau. A 12th century church, now out of use, sits at the top of the village and a much newer, 1870, one with painted scenes of the Passion of Christ sits near the bottom. It is still worth climbing up to the old church. Surrounded by towering cedars, you will enjoy stunning views of Monts de Vaucluse, Mont Ventoux and Lacoste, Gordes and Roussillon. In the summer, there are some classical music concerts that take place in this atmospheric setting. Some of the houses in Bonnieux date back to the 16th century when several bishops chose to live in the village. Friday is a great time to visit to pick up some things from the vibrant market. There is even a bakery museum where you can find out how bread is made in the artisanal manner.

The village of Gordes is a must visit. Gordes’ Tuesday morning market is a perfect place to pick up local produce and a few souvenirs. Gordes boasts pretty narrow alleyways sprinkled with charming restaurants, cafes, a bakery and food shops. On the Luberon plain, the village also enjoys superb views. Gordes is dominated by its wonderful church and castle. During World War II Gordes was mostly destroyed and the villagers massacred. The whole village was awarded the Croix de Guerre medal. The village enjoys a fascinating history dating back to the Vordeuses who named it Vorda. Below Gordes, you can make a magical underground discovery. The hidden treasure of the Caves du Palais Saint Firmin are just a five minute walk from the castle. The cellars would have been used in the Middle Ages to house craft activities and it is still possible to see an old oil mill, cisterns and pipes dug into the rock. A small underground city can be explored with its carved pillars, stone staircases and beautiful vaulted ceilings.

Provence is rich in history and there are plenty of attractions to include in your holiday programme. The Roman Amphitheatre, the Triumphal Arch in Orange, the Papal Palace and Pont St Benezet in Avignon are all worth visiting. Avignon is a very attractive walled city which served as the Vatican City for sixty seven years. Today, it is one of France’s most popular tourist cities with outstanding museums and magnificent architecture. The lively Provencal markets are not to be missed. You can visit Vaison la Romaine on Tuesday mornings as well as the local Gordes market, Carpentras on Friday mornings and L'Isle sur la Sorgue has a huge market on Sunday mornings which features antiques and bric-a-brac alongside local produce.

Maison Des Amoureux is perfect for a small family. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus excellent open plan living space, it is very roomy and the garden is a huge draw. It is beautifully planted and comes with a swimming pool, a boules court which children love and lush lawns. The location is wonderful with lots of villages to visit, rivers for water adventures and hills and mountains to climb.

Provence is a wonderful destination for a family holiday. The region’s picture-postcard villages are so pretty, each offering charming cafes, patisseries selling delicious goodies, and gorgeous ancient buildings. There are many villages to visit including Lacoste, Gordes, Goult, Menerbes, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Joucas, Roussillon and Oppede-le-Vieux. You can also venture slightly further afield visiting Arles, Aix-en-Provence or the Dentelles. Many of the nearby towns enjoy old fashioned carousels and playgrounds. Children love shopping in the markets, buying fresh bread and cheese and souvenirs to take home.

Children can learn about the many impressionist artists that made their homes in Provence such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Paul Cezanne. Cezanne’s work features at the Musee Granet in Aix-en-Provence. In Arles, visitors can dine at the famous Cafe Van Gogh which was the focus of his famous famous Cafe Terrace at Night.

Families that love the outdoors enjoy hiking and cycling through the mountains and valleys. If you have any daredevils with you, it is possible to bungee jump, canoe, kayak or enjoy some canyoning in Provence. Canoeing or kayaking down the Sorgue River is very popular. The emerald green coloured river is crystal clear, coming out of the ground at Fontaine de Vaucluse where your water adventure begins. Enveloped in nature, you row downstream along a lush avenue of trees to Isle sur la Sorgue and a bus will take you back to where you started. Canoe-Evasion and Kayak Vert organise these trips. There are boats for one to four depending on age. A couple with two children under the age of eight would fit in one boat. Accrobranching is also a must for thrill seekers. It is like an obstacle course in the trees with walkways, rope bridges, swings, nets and ziplines. There are courses for all ages and abilities. You should head for Passerelles des Cimes on the road into Fontaine de Vaucluse, just befor Kayak Evasion.

Children enjoy visiting Roussillon with its many shades of ochre. It is bright and beautiful and children love wandering around the spiralling streets. At the top of the village there are amazing panoramic views across the valley to the Grand Luberon, the slopes of Mont Ventoux and the plateau of the Vaucluse.

In Avignon, a little tourist train takes visitors to the main sights including the Palais des Papes, the famous bridge and the winding, pretty back streets of the Old City. There are also hop-on-hop-off buses that children enjoy or horse-drawn carriages. Children also enjoy river cruises, canoe trips or a boat shuttle across the Rhone to Barthelasses Island. On the island, there are beautiful views across to Avignon, a pony and horse riding club, bikes for hire, an Olympic size swimming pool and minigolf. The boat shuttle leaves just east of the Saint Benezet Bridge, better know as the famous Pont d’Avignon. Families can visit the Palais des Papes and pick up a HistoPad which offers a specially designed treasure hunt and games for children. Just above the Palais is Rocher des Dom, a lovely park with wonderful views, a pond with ducks and swans, play and picnic areas. There are several museums in Avignon that children enjoy, including The Musee Requien, a natural history museum. In summer, a giant ferris wheel is installed on the river bank and there is a carousel near the Palais des Papes. Children also enjoy picking up food in the covered food market. There are a number of annual festivals including the Festo Pitcho at Easter with a fancy dress parade, shows and performances.

  • Very relaxing holiday

    on 14/10/2019

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison Des Amoureux and were impressed from the moment we arrived - everything was spotlessly clean and in very good condition. It is in a lovely, quiet location and facilities were first class - we had a very relaxing holiday.

  • Just perfect for our family

    on 01/10/2018

    Maison Des Amoureux was just perfect for our family of four. While the house is a bit smaller than the impression from the photos, it was just fine after we got used to the layout. The pool was a really nice to while away the hot afternoons.

  • A wonderful place to spend two weeks relaxing

    on 02/09/2018

    A lovely house in a quiet and peaceful location. Well placed for visiting all the wonderful hilltop towns and a few vineyards on the way. It is just as easy to spend a day relaxing by the pool, and in it, with the odd glass of local rosé. A wonderful place to spend two weeks relaxing and enjoying the slow pace of Provencal life, even in August.

  • Great holiday house in a prime location

    on 14/07/2018

    We spent an incredibly relaxing week at Maison Des Amoureux making full use of the amazing, professional kitchen and glorious garden and pool. The house has been beautifully renovated with no expense spared and makes for a great holiday house in a prime location. Highly recommended.
