Overview

Pool Walk to Village

Live like the lord of the manor at this historic village home deep in the alluring Luberon region of Provence.

Dating back to the early 1700s, with some parts even older, Manoir Roquesante offers guests charm and authenticity with its wonderfully restored interiors. Previously owned by a lord when it was the most important house in the village, admire the manoir’s original doors, grand fireplaces, 18th century grain jugs and most of all a wonderful terrace with panoramic views of the village rooftops and Provençal countryside beyond.

Kick back in the top-floor lounge with lovely views, prepare good food to enjoy with family or friends in one of the two well-equipped kitchens and dine in style in the grand dining room with its vaulted ceiling and exposed stone walls. The pretty balcony is another gorgeous spot for al-fresco meals under the vine-covered shade whilst stairs lead down to a perfect pool for warm summer days.

Each of the five bedrooms is unique, scattered across three levels from the mid-floor double with its en suite bathroom featuring a claw-foot bath to the top-floor bedroom with a feature 17th century copper bath and an original wooden toilet in its en suite! There are also three pretty singles, allowing up to 7 guests to experience this unique and historic home.

It’s wonderful to be able to stroll around the picturesque hilltop village with its 12th century church, boulangerie, terrace café-restaurant and grocery store. Typically Provençal in style, admire its old stone houses, attractive doorways and pretty little gardens as you wander through its lanes. Also look out for summer festivities and cultural events taking place in the little village.

Explore further afield within the southern Luberon to villages such as La Tour-d'Aigues, Ansouis and Cucuron or discover why Lourmarin, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ was so loved by Albert Camus. Pick up all sorts of Provençal delights at local village markets, visit nearby vineyards and cycle or hike through the undulating landscapes of this glorious region.

Then there’s the idyllic perched villages to the north such as Bonnieux, Gordes and Roussillon or drive south to Cezanne’s beloved Aix-en-Provence with its museums, parks, street-cafes and overall charming atmosphere. That’s if you can leave the beautiful and authentic surroundings of your grand village home.

Manoir Roquesante is set in the heart of a typically Provençal village in the southern Luberon region, around 40km north of Aix-en-Provence.

Follow the footsteps of Marcel Pagnol has you stroll around this small charming village, after all he chose to film some scenes of La Gloire De Mon Père here. The perched village is home to a boulangerie, café-restaurant and small grocery store. There is a well-regarded restaurant and a pharmacy at the lower end of the village, about 1.5km away.

Stroll around the village’s narrow lanes, admiring beautifully restored stone houses, pretty doorways, colourful little gardens and look out to the glorious views of the Aigues valley with its vineyards, orchards and farms.

There are many other villages to discover within a short drive such as La Tour-d'Aigues (7km) with its impressive chateau and historic Ansouis (15km), one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and home to a Michelin starred restaurant. Cucuron (16km) is another magical place to spend time in, especially on a Tuesday morning when you can pick up all sorts of local produce from the market, followed by a lunch by the picturesque square, plane trees and bassin.

Not forgetting the idyllic perched village of Lourmarin (24km), another ‘Plus Beaux Village’ where Albert Camus lived for many years. The ambience is wonderful whether relaxing in a charming street café or dining out in one of the many excellent restaurants. The Friday morning market is also a joy – buy wine, olive oil, honey, herbs and all sorts of other enticing local produce.

Explore the stunning landscapes of the Luberon by hiring bikes or hiking through the hills and woodland, following routes between the villages or trails through vineyards and farmland. Head to the Durance river for canoeing and kayaking or enjoy nature walks through the pine forests at Étang de la Bonde, where locals also swim and fish.

Head further north to other archetypal villages of the Luberon with Bonnieux, Ménerbes and Roussillon all about an hour away or spend time in the pleasant Provençal town of Pertuis (13km). Then there’s Aix-en-Provence of course, around a 40-minute drive away, with its street-cafes, Cézanne carousel, galleries, museums and fantastic parks.
