Its living spaces include a large, characterful dining room with a feature fireplace, a charming living room with sumptuous sofas surrounding a giant fireplace, plus an additional dining space and a fantastic kitchen with top-of-the-range appliances. The central island makes the kitchen a sociable space to cook in and you can step straight out from the kitchen to the spectacular terrace for shaded al-fresco dining with a view. There is also a separate laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Just like the living spaces, the ten bedroom suites are beautifully presented with modern furnishings, lavish beds adorned with crisp cottons and lovely soft furnishings. In the main house, the master bedroom offers a super king-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and double aspect with views over the Luberon Valley and the villa’s gorgeous garden.The second bedroom features a sumptuous king-size bed while the two other bedrooms in the main house enjoy flexible sleeping arrangements with beds that can be set up as singles or a king-size bed.

The remaining six bedroom suites sit alongside the main house, each with its own access from the terrace or garden. They are beautiful, featuring exposed stone walls and delightful splashes of colour. Two of the suites enjoy sitting rooms with sofa beds for a total of four children, bringing the total capacity of the house to 24 guests. One of the family suites also offers a kitchenette and its own loggia with a table and chairs.

From its spectacular, south-facing position, Maison Lenglen enjoys the breathtaking vistas of the Provence tapestry all the way to the Luberon mountains. The villa’s raised terrace commands the very best of the views which include the pretty village of Gordes. This dreamy paradise comes with a huge 2500m2 garden brimming with olive trees, lush planting and lawns. The pool area is exquisitely designed with a generous 13m x 6m heated pool with a surrounded by sun loungers, parasols and outdoor furniture. Next to this is the pool house with its brilliant summer kitchen and outdoor showers. For further entertainment, there is table tennis and a gravelled area for boules or petanque.

Maison Lenglen enjoys a fabulous location just a twenty minute walk along the road from the quaint, charming village of Gordes.

Maison Lenglen overlooks the dreamy French village of Gordes in the Luberon region of Provence. You can easily walk along the road to enjoy the village’s lively Tuesday morning market and pick up supplies or enjoy a glass of wine or two.

Gordes boasts pretty narrow alleyways lined with charming restaurants and cafes as well as a fragrant bakery and food stores. The village also has a fascinating history - during World War II Gordes was mostly destroyed and afterwards it was awarded the Croix de Guerre medal. Today, the village is dominated by its wonderful church and castle and is known for its popular market which enjoys the best local produce as well as crafts and fabrics.

A magical underground world can also be discovered in Gordes. The hidden treasures of the Caves du Palais Saint Firmin are just a five minute walk from the castle. Here lies a small underground city complete with carved pillars, stone staircases and beautiful vaulted ceilings. The caves 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.

The hamlet of ‘Les Cabanes’, 4km from Gordes, is now known as the Village des Bories. Sitting on the slopes of the Vaucluse Mountains, it was restored at the beginning of the 17th century and is an open-air museum of dry stone huts. Visiting the hamlet is like stepping back in time to the Bronze Age, when it it thought the houses were originally built!

Also just outside of Gordes, you can visit the stunning Senanque Abbey which is 5km away and surrounded by beautiful lavender. After touring the monastery, be sure to snap a great family photo in the lavendar fields.   

The lively Provençal markets are also not to be missed. As well as the local Gordes market, you can visit Carpentras (28km) on Friday mornings while L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (20km) has a huge market on Sunday mornings which features antiques and bric-a-brac alongside local produce.

Provence is rich in history and there are plenty of attractions to include in your holiday programme. The Triumphal Arch in Orange (60km) and the Papal Palace and Pont St Benezet in Avignon (45km) are all worth visiting. Avignon is a very attractive walled city which served as the home of the Pope for 67 years. Today, it is one of France’s most popular tourist cities with outstanding museums and magnificent architecture.

Maison Lenglen is a wonderful pick for large groups of family or friends with children. The property is very comfortable, the gardens are stunning and there is so much space for family games and fun. When you do wish to leave the house in search of entertainment, the surrounding area also has plenty to offer.

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 town. There are also hop-on-hop-off buses that the whole family will enjoy or horse-drawn carriage rides. River cruises, canoe trips or a boat shuttle across the Rhone to Barthelasses Island are great ways of seeing more of the sights and giving tired legs a break.

On Barthelasses Island, there are beautiful views across to Avignon, a pony and horse riding club, bikes for hire, an Olympic-size swimming pool and mini golf. The boat shuttle leaves just east of the Saint Benezet Bridge, better know as the famous Pont d’Avignon.

Back in Avignon families can visit the Palais des Papes and pick up a HistoPad which offers a specially designed treasure hunt and games for children. There are several museums in Avignon that children will 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.

The splendour of Roussillon should not be missed. There are so many shades of ochre to enjoys across this hillside village. 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.
