Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Parking Space

Just a short stroll along the country roads from the Luberon village of Oppède, this former Provençal farmhouse is full of charm and features a beautiful swimming pool and picturesque garden.

Set in a cluster of houses, Maison Grantaire has been stylishly renovated to sleep up to 6 guests across its three inviting bedrooms. Décor is simple yet attractive with original features alongside contemporary touches. The gorgeous lounge has a huge ornate fireplace, next to the dining room and modern kitchen with pretty tiles. The summer dining room is a picture-perfect spot for summer feasts with doors opening out to the decked poolside terrace.

Two of the bedrooms are in the main part of the house, both with their own bath/shower rooms, whilst a third en suite bedroom has its own independent access and little terrace. Outside there is a traditional garden with an ancient olive tree, three large cedars and space to play boules in the dappled shade.

With views of the Luberon hills, walk along the country road and just over 1km away is the village of Oppède with its boulangerie, épicerie and a couple of restaurants whilst a little further by car you can find wine and olive-oil tasting opportunities as well as the supermarkets, food shops and weekly Farmer’s market in Coustellet.

In the other direction, again just 1km away, is the perched village of Oppède le Vieux with its incredible heritage and magnificent views, a paradise for keen walkers. Other nearby idyllic hilltop villages within the Luberon include Gordes and Ménerbes whilst landscapes of cherry orchards, woodland, farmland, olive groves and vineyards are waiting to be admired.

Explore the handsome market town of Apt, home of the Luberon’s largest market on a Saturday morning, or venture to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to experience its historic charm and famous Sunday morning brocante. Canoe along the Sorgue River from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, visit the art galleries of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and discover the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon, just over half an hour from your holiday home in the Luberon.

Maison Grantaire is set in a little cluster of holiday homes close to the pretty villages of Oppède and Oppède le Vieux in the Luberon region of Provence, around 36km from Avignon.

You can walk along the country road to reach Oppède (no pavement as is typical in rural France) where there are a couple of restaurants, an épicerie for your groceries and a bakery. A little further afield is Coustellet (6km), home to a couple of good-sized supermarkets, some lovely shops and a Farmer’s market on a Sunday morning. Wine and olive oil tastings take place at nearby La Royère (3km) and its Musée de l'Huile d'Olive.

In the other direction is the historic perched village of Oppède le Vieux (1km), also within walking distance if you can manage the climb! Soak up its charming ambience, admire its beautifully preserved heritage and stop for a bite to eat whilst the most adventurous can take advantage of the glorious hiking opportunities from the village.

Elsewhere in the Luberon, other iconic hilltop villages include Ménerbes (4.5km), Gordes (12km) and Roussillon (17km), passing farmland, olive groves, lavender fields and cherry orchards as you explore - the landscapes of the Luberon are truly captivating. Look out for atmospheric weekly markets dotted around local villages and towns including the region’s largest market on a Saturday morning in the handsome town of Apt (24km).

Admire the beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (16km), also known for its hiking opportunities, and sail along the Sorgue River by canoe or kayak before pottering around L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue with its waterwheels, antique stores and Sunday morning brocante.

The small historic city of Avignon (36km) is a fine day out, as is Aix-en-Provence (62km) just over an hour away by car. Les Alpilles is another alluring region of France where you can follow Van Gogh’s footsteps in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (33km), same olive oil from the groves surrounding Les Baux-de-Provence (42km) and look out for discreet A-list celebrities in Eygalières (27km).

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!
