Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

In a secluded position in the beautiful Luberon National Park, Maison Orange is a delightful four bedroom family home, perfect for guests wanting to both relax in glorious surroundings as well as explore this captivating region.

The 17th century farmhouse has been completely renovated to create a warm and welcoming holiday home which has been styled with a creative flair with interesting furnishings and historic pieces complementing modern comfort and sometimes minimalist style. The owner’s love of art, literature and travel can be seen across the home from contemporary art adorning the walls to shelves full of books collected over the years. Whether lounging in the vaulted, arched living and dining room downstairs or relaxing in the upper level TV room, there is room for everyone whether staying with family and friends in this charming home.

Step outside where you can enjoy your morning coffee on the stone table overlooking the olive tree, gardens and swimming pool or embrace the warmth of the sun in the outdoor lounge area. The pretty swimming pool is surrounded by lawn, perfect for sun bathing after taking a dip whilst the typically Provençal gardens lead on to vineyards and olive groves.

It’s only a five-minute drive to the charming village where you can wander the medieval streets and enjoy magnificent views as you ascend. The bustling atmosphere on a Tuesday morning is wonderful as the market takes over the main square by the large fountain, stay on for lunch in one of the handful of restaurants, some with tables under the impressive plane trees of the village square.

There are idyllic villages across the Luberon for you to explore, from nearby Vaugines (4km) where Jean de Florette was filmed to historic La Tour d’Aigues (12km) and archetypal Bonnieux (20km). Food lovers should head to Apt (26km) on a Saturday morning for one of the region’s best markets and the lovely University city of Aix-en-Provence is only forty minutes away by car.

This region is also a nature enthusiast’s paradise with mesmerising trails through the countryside and hills ideal for horse-riding, hiking and cycling with inspirational landscapes surrounding you. This is the Luberon, one of Provence’s most intensely beautiful regions and at Maison Orange you are in the heart of it.

It’s just a five-minute drive to a charming village, which is especially atmospheric on a Tuesday morning with its weekly market on the main square by the glorious fountain in the heart of the village. There are a few restaurants, little shops, a small supermarket and beautiful historical buildings to explore in the medieval streets. As you climb up the village the views get even more stunning. If you stay in the summer months look out for concerts taking place in the village church.

The very old village of Vaugines (4km) is also just five minutes away, made famous for a while to the films "Jean de Florette" and "Manon des Sources" being filmed here.

In the surrounding countryside there are farms producing cherries, melons, olives and some wonderful wines. Indeed, there are some wonderful walks and mountain bike routes in the nearby area and horse-riding opportunities too. The Luberon National Park offers an ideal setting for hiking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue further north near L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (46km).

There are climbing opportunities near Buoux (20km), a tiny village with a castle not to be missed and now a mecca for rock-climbing. Wine lovers will appreciate all the amazing wineries in the local area whilst more family friendly activities in the region include tree-top activity centres, a zoo at La Barben and model railway south of Carpentras.

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!
