Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Laptop Friendly Workspace Parking Space

Maison Éponine is a modern villa surrounded by captivating Luberon landscapes with breathtaking views from the swimming pool and terrace. It’s lovely to be able to stroll along country lanes to the traditional local village with its boulangerie, honey factory, ice-cream shop and a couple of restaurants.

Located around 16km east of Apt, the wild and rugged scenery dotted with lavender fields will enchant you. We love how this contemporary home still manages to exude Provençal charm and makes the most of the sensational outlook. Across the vast grounds, alongside the swimming pool and terrace overlooking the Luberon valley, there is a boules court beneath the dappled shade of the trees and a hammock for lazy afternoons. An authentic stone borie, where shepherds would have once sought shelter, adds to the character of this gorgeous garden.

Inside Maison Éponine we adore the chic open-plan lounge and kitchen with designer sofas and a Smart TV alongside a modern kitchen, stylish dining table and doors sliding open to the poolside terrace and covered al-fresco dining patio with barbecue. The master bedroom is also on this floor with a luxurious en suite bathroom (with an oval bath and walk-in shower) whilst there are three further bedrooms upstairs, all sharing another impressive bathroom.

Stroll along the country lanes and you will reach the heart of the hilltop village in around 10 minutes. Dating back over ten centuries, time seems to stand still as you explore its medieval lanes coming across the old communal oven and miellerie (honey farm) selling all sorts of honey-based delights. There’s also the usual boulangerie, grocery store and a couple of places to eat as well as a much-loved ice-cream shop with a great choice of flavours.

Keen hikers will appreciate the many walks through the wonderful surroundings with the Oppedette gorges and the ochre-landscapes of Rustrel both nearby, whilst less adventurous guests can admire the idyllic scenery from viewpoints. Head to Apt on a Saturday morning for the region’s largest market and perhaps venture on towards some of the Luberon’s iconic perched villages such as Roussillon, Ménerbes and Gordes.

Slightly closer to home, soak up the authenticity of the tiny village of Saint-Martin-de-Castillon, experience yet more magnificent vistas from Saignon and try the summer cherries from Saint-Saturnin-lès-Apt. Be inspired by Le Jardin de l'Abbaye de Valsaintes, gasp at the lavender fields and olive groves surrounding Simiane-la-Rotonde or simply marvel at the incredible views from your swimming pool terrace at this beautiful Luberon getaway.

Enjoying the most stunning views, Maison Éponine is in the Luberon region of Provence a short walk from a medieval village. This eastern part of the Luberon is wilder and less visited that some of the perched villages further west so you will benefit from its authentic charm without as many summer visitors.  

Walk along the country lanes (no pavements as is typical in rural France) and you will reach the edge of the hilltop village in a five to ten-minute stroll. It almost feels like time as stood still in this 1000 year old village with its old houses, honey factory, ice-cream shop, grocery store and a couple of places to eat. Look out for the little Farmer’s and artisan craft market on a Wednesday morning.

Keen hikers note there are some wonderful trails near the village, a fantastic way to appreciate the incredible scenery of rugged landscapes and lavender fields. Furthermore, the Oppedette gorges are just 6km to the north and the ochre landscapes of Rustrel are around a 15-minute drive away, another popular area for walkers.

Follow the winding road west towards Apt (16km) to experience the region’s largest Provençal market on a Saturday morning. This handsome historic town dates back to Roman times and it is a joy to spend time there with its shops, restaurants, squares and fountains. It is also the capital of candied fruit and you will no doubt find plenty of places selling this local delicacy. There is a smaller local produce market in Apt on a Tuesday morning that is worthy of a visit.

Saignon (16km) is another picture-perfect Luberon village with spectacular views and close to lavender fields whilst even closer is the tiny village of Saint-Martin-de-Castillon (8km), also full of charm. If you wish to visit some of the iconic perched villages of the Luberon then Roussillon (29km), Ménerbes (39km) and Gordes (37km) can be reached within a 45 to 60-minute drive.

In the other direction is the Provençal town of Manosque (32km), known for its authentic beauty as well as its olive oil and wine production. Potter around its restored old town with pavement cafes and pretty houses and admire the views by walking up Mont D’Or.

The most adventurous of guests could continue driving on to Gréoux-les-Bains (46km) with its colourful Thursday morning market, as well as Lac d’Esparron-de-Verdon with its pristine water, lakeside beaches, seasonal water-based activities and incredible hiking opportunities.

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!

Families will adore the authentic charm of the local village, within walking distance, with its pizzeria, ice-cream shop and honey factory. Dating back over 1000 years, you can soak up the history as you potter around its narrow lanes.

Surrounded by wild landscapes of the Luberon, families with older children who are experienced hikers can seek out a variety of trails in the surrounding area as well as beautiful viewpoints for the less adventurous. There is rock-climbing in Buoux, around half an hour away and horse-riding further afield.

Closer to home, Colorado Aventures is a great family day out with trails/play areas suitable for children 3+ and more challenging routes for older children. There is also a laser game (aged 8+) and extreme jumping (aged 10+).
