There is not a better base for exploring France’s enchanting natural beauty than Maison Myrtille, located right at the edge of the Luberon Natural Park within the Provence-Alpes region. The rich and varied landscape is famed for its spiderweb of medieval villages, its sunny coastline and its world-renowned vineyards and wineries.

With its unique aspects, beautiful furnishings and incredible vistas, Maison Myrtille is a charming abode which is all about an understated sense of splendour alongside true escapism. Expect antiques, wooden beams, carefully-curated artwork and quirky vintage decor that all fits together for an elegant but traditional feel.

A large dining room is perfect for evenings spent dining together, while the living area has plenty of character, with tiled floors, a large stone fireplace and a snow-white piano. There are three bedrooms in the main house and two ground-floor bedrooms in the adjoining annexe which comfortably sleep a total of 10 guests.

The garden is such a joy, not only because of its private swimming pool and its surrounding stone terrace, but also for the vast amount of space it boasts. Pass warm summer days reading beneath a fruit tree, playing badminton on the lawns, or simply spreading out a blanket in the grass. After a day at the local market, guests can turn into speciality chefs by preparing homemade pizzas in the outside kitchenette and enjoying them al-fresco on the shaded terrace.

The house is set just off a narrow country lane which leads to a small stream and some spectacular hiking spots. Although nestled in an off-the-beaten-track location enveloped by pine trees, it is also just a short car journey from the market town of Apt and the stunning village of Saigon. Reputed for its candied fruit and local products, Apt is simply perfect for those who love strolling around winding pathways full of ancient fountains and enjoy a slower pace of life.

The house is also ideally placed for making various day trips to neighbouring villages and cities. The most beautiful include Ménerbes, Lacoste and Lourmarin, which are around a 30-minute drive away. Avignon and Aix-en Provence are both buzzing with life, filled with museums, galleries, restaurants and bars, and can be reached in just over an hour.

If you are looking for some outstanding natural beauty, make sure to visit Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, located less than a 2-hour drive away. A true haven of peace, this landscape of striking beauty is nestled on a hillside on the shores of the immense lake of St. Croix and is famed for its crystal-clear water, coves and beaches – simply a great place to recharge your batteries.

Maison Myrtille enjoys a lovely location within close proximity of two charming villages in the heart of the Luberon Nature Park, between the mountains of Vaucluse and Luberon.

From the house, it is just a short drive to Apt, where you will find a typical Provençal market that takes place on a Saturday morning and is one of the most famous in the region. It promises a vast array of peaches, herbs, cheeses, bread and as well as the local delicacy of candied fruit. Walk around its small but historic centre before settling down in a café nearby and watching the world go by.

The hilltop village of Saignon is also close by and features shops, cafés and a boulangerie. Wander around the narrow streets, discover ancient fountains, lovely squares, and beautiful old houses as well as the 12th-century church. Keen walkers can climb up to the top of the village's rock, which dominates the valley and rewards visitors with amazing views of the Luberon region and even a glimpse of the Alps on a clear day.

Spend a day village hopping a and head to Buoux, then Bonnieux and continue through Lacoste all the way to Ménerbes to get a true taste of Provence. Each of these villages is authentic in its own special way and they are buzzing with traditional markets, ancient architecture, and hidden corners to be discovered.

The stunning landscape and villages of the Luberon region retain their timeless appeal and the local lavender, cherries, olives, truffles, and wines are world-famous for good reason. Here you find yourself in the heart of a great hiking country, with many popular tracks all around. Notably, the GR92 hiking path runs by the house and is perfect for walkers.

But Provence’s charm is not just about its crumbling countryside - drive for ninety minutes and you will reach France’s twinkling coastline, notably the popular holiday destination of Marseille. Loved for its sun-kissed beaches, seafood and nightlife, this city offers something for everyone. Get up early and head to the Old Port in the morning if you want to see fishermen unload and sell their daily catch or head to the city centre for a meal if you prefer tasting local cuisine. Evenings can easily melt into the early morning hours, and there are many summer beach clubs and bars playing music all night long.

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!

Provence is perfect for entertaining younger jet setters, whether they love spending long days at the beach, frolicking around lavender fields, or learning something about the arts and history of the region.

If you hear nature calling, put on your walking boots and head to the far-stretching Luberon Natural Park. Here you can set off on relaxing trails and scenic walks that take you through olive groves, orchards and landscapes scattered with old chapels and farmhouses. Take your trip up a notch by hiring mountain bikes or going on a guided tour, many of which allow you to travel to untouched places not many tourists know about.

Alternatively, the area of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon will provide ample water-based opportunities. Top activities include hot air balloon flights over the Provençal countryside, as well as hiking through the Grand Canyon of Europe – think natural pools, descents of rapids and turquoise water surrounded by rocky cliffs and wildlife. The area is equally fantastic for rafting and tree adventure course – simply everything your little adventurers could possibly wish for.
