Experience the beauty of Provence whilst staying in a converted barn with contemporary interiors and the most wonderful grounds, only a short drive from the much-loved Luberon village of Ménerbes.

Set in the countryside, Villa Cabernet benefits from vast land which includes large lawns, woodland, a vineyard, boules and a stunning 17m long heated swimming pool with views as far as Mont Ventoux. Relax on the decked poolside terrace or create a feast to enjoy with family and friends in the superb pool house’s kitchen. There’s also al-fresco dining at its best on the south-facing terrace by the villa.

The interiors of Villa Cabernet are bright and modern yet with ample character as well as plenty of space. There are three double bedrooms in the main house and space for a seventh and eighth guest in the separate pool house, around 60m from the villa, where there is a sofa-bed or mezzanine bedroom, perhaps ideal for older teens. Out of the three bathrooms, the one with a walk-in shower and bath with jacuzzi jets is sure to impress your guests.

It’s only a short drive to the charming village of Ménerbes, where Peter Mayes’ ‘A Year in Provence’ was once set. As well as steep cobbled lanes with restaurants and cafes, there’s a vibrant weekly market and beautiful views of cherry orchards and vineyards in the surrounding landscapes.

Other Luberon gems nearby include Gordes, Lacoste and Bonnieux whilst slightly further afield you can spend the day visiting the antique stores of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, canoeing along the river from Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or admiring the UNESCO World Heritage sites of historic Avignon.

In the Luberon region of Provence, part of the Vaucluse department of southern France, Villa Cabernet is set in spacious grounds only 1km from the picturesque village of Ménerbes.

Ménerbes is a delightful place to spend time in whether pottering around its Thursday morning market or simply exploring its cobbled lanes, restaurants and cafes soaking up the Provençal ambience as seen in Peter Mayes’ ‘A Year in Provence’.

You’re also so well positioned for exploring other idyllic villages of the Luberon from Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes to other archetypal places such as Bonnieux, Lacoste and Roussillon. Food lovers will enjoy the fantastic Saturday morning market in Apt, just under half an hour by car, or closer to home enjoy the foodie shops and Sunday Farmer’s market in nearby Coustellet.

This region is wonderful for keen walkers and cyclists with a range of trails passing vineyards, olive groves and orchards. Lovers of outdoor adventures should also experience some of the hikes and canoeing/kayaking opportunities around Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, the source of the beautiful Sorgue river.

Further day trips beyond the Luberon include the historic city of Avignon (40km) and its UNESCO World Heritage sites as well as the artistic town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (38km), set in the glorious landscapes of Les Alpilles. Heading further south, Aix-en-Provence (61km) is another delight with its terrace cafes, parks and art galleries/museums including Atelier Cézanne, the studio once belonging to the famous artist.

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!

Reviews

  • Fantastic week

    on 16/07/2016

    We had the most fantastic week. We took our grown up kids and friends and they were totally enraptured by the place, as were we. The conversion is wonderful and the pool area especially great - we played a lot of petanque and pool games, I think I spent almost one whole hour just floating around on a noodle watching buzzards. The girls loved the art, my son had vinyl envy and the lawn was just the right size for holiday cricket. The owner's attention to detail and comfort made us feel at home and not too overawed to enjoy ourselves. To be honest I'm not sure if the website does justice to how special the house is and leaving after only one week was tough.

  • Great!

    on 18/06/2016

    We had a great time at Villa Cabernet. The house was good and we especially enjoyed our daily lap swimming and playing in the pool and regular petanque. I even got to pick some ripe cherries and make a cherry tarte tatin .

  • Unique and unforgettable

    on 15/08/2014

    This house is beautifully situated in a setting of great charm. The welcome is generous and the house is especially well equipped. The pool is very large and an ideal layout for the sunshine. We were able to enjoy the property with guests and a young baby in great comfort.
