On the edge of a little Luberon village, Villa Auguste is such a picturesque stone house with beautiful furnishings and a gorgeous garden and swimming pool, within walking distance to the boulangerie, as well as local restaurants and a bar.

As you wander inside the villa, discover pretty arched doorways and picture-perfect windows framing the lovely views of the garden. With cool tiled floors and elegant furnishings, there’s a classic style throughout, perfectly combined with many contemporary features. From various parts of the ground floor, large French windows open up to the terraces and garden, allowing this charming house to seamlessly blend al-fresco and indoor living.  

Out of the five bedrooms, one is downstairs with a modern shower room whilst four more doubles with air-conditioning are on the first floor. Each bedroom is individual in style whether it’s the inviting double with its wood-beamed ceiling, the one with the pretty courtyard views or the master with its king-sized bed, en suite shower room and glorious views of the Luberon hills.

Outside, there is ample room for dining on the attractive terrace, sun-bathing by the colourful summer plants and splashing around in the swimming pool. There’s an overall feel of privacy in this enclosed outdoor space with an abundance of greenery as well as olive trees giving it a delightful Provençal ambience.

Step out of your gardens and wander down the road to the village, passing neighbouring vineyards and looking out to wonderful views of the Luberon hills. This small village is home to a boulangerie, butchers and a small handful of restaurants as well as a bell tower and steep cobbled lanes in the old quarter.

Visit atmospheric Farmer’s markets close by and explore many of the Luberon’s archetypal perched villages such as Gordes, Bonnieux and Roussillon, all reached within half an hour or less. Sample the summer melons of nearby Cavaillon, sweet cherries of Ménerbes and of course the AOC Côtes du Luberon wines of the village and beyond.

Spend endless days cycling, horse-riding or hiking through the dreamy Luberon landscapes or perhaps stay closer to home and walk through the surrounding vineyards and hills, always admiring the beauty of this extraordinary part of Provence.

Villa Auguste can be found just a 10-minute walk from a small Luberon village, around 10km east of Cavaillon, making it a great location for exploring this glorious part of Provence.

Stroll into the little village and within 1km you will find a boulangerie-patisserie and a butchers in the more modern quarter as well as a couple of restaurants and a bar dotted around the village. Wander a little further to discover the old part of the village on a hill with its pretty belltower and there is also a children’s playground and tennis court nearby. Surrounded by vineyards, in an area known for its AOC Côtes du Luberon wine, there are some especially lovely walks in the countryside around the village, suitable for a variety of abilities.

Just a 5-minute drive away is Coustellet where you will find further useful amenities including supermarkets and a pharmacy as well as a wonderful Farmer’s market on a Sunday morning (usually April to December) which sells all sorts of fresh produce from across the region. In the summer, from June to August, look out for a smaller early evening market on a Wednesday.

You are also well placed for exploring many of the archetypal perched villages of the Luberon such as Ménerbes (8km), the idyllic place that inspired Peter Mayes’ ‘A Year in Provence‘ as well as tiny Oppède le Vieux (5km) in its spectacular position.

Gordes (10km), one of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ is another gem of this region, surrounded by fields of summer lavender, whilst Roussillon, Bonnieux and Lacoste can all be reached within half an hour. Look out for Provençal markets, summer festivities or classical concerts taking place in local villages and towns during your stay.

The Provençal town of Cavaillon is also close by, just over a 10-minute drive away. It has a fascinating heritage including one of Europe’s most beautiful synagogues as well as an interesting Roman history. The town is also famous for its Cavaillon melons which you will find in local markets in the summer months – if staying in July look out for the town’s vibrant melon festival!

There are ample cycling opportunities across the Luberon region and of course as far as Bédoin and Mont Ventoux, as well as many walking and hiking trails, rock-climbing and horse-riding. Visit vineyards close by or further afield (Châteauneuf-du-Pape is under and hour away), sample the exquisite olive oil of Les Alpilles near gorgeous villages such as Les Baux-de-Provence or spend the day in the historic city of Avignon (33km).

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The Luberon region offers a wealth of activities for a variety of ages, always surrounded by such spectacular surroundings.

Just the other side of the village, about a 20-minute walk away, is a little playground alongside a tennis court. Families can also enjoy some pleasant walks following paths through some of the surrounding vineyards in this wine-producing area.

Cycling and mountain biking are also incredibly popular with a range of trails depending on your experience and ability. A newly paved route, La Véloroute du Calavon, is a good option for families as it follows a former railway line and passes through nearby Coustellet.

Rock-climbing, horse-riding and pony trekking can also be found across the Luberon and neighbouring Les Alpilles. If you love kayaking, head to Fontaine-de-Vaucluse for water-based fun on the Sorgue river.

Also in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse is a tree-top adventure centre with activities suitable for children aged 3+ depending on their height. Alternatively, heading towards Carpentras, look out for the model railway centre at Le Jarditren, the fascinating caves at Grottes de Thouzon or the theme park rides at Parc Spirou.
