We love how the glorious gardens, little stone paths and enchanting Luberon views juxtapose the modern interiors of Villa Capucine, a beautiful holiday home a short walk along the road from a traditional Provençal village.  

Indeed, there’s a great sense of warmth and character at this welcoming villa in Provence with wood-beamed ceilings and picture-perfect views. Yet the open-plan living and dining area offers so much space and the contemporary kitchen is ideal for creating wonderful feasts using delicious produce from local markets.

With great attention to detail, the owners have managed to effortlessly blend classic pieces of furniture with modern features, evident throughout the home. Sleeping up to 8 guests in air-conditioned bedrooms, choose between the ground floor en suite double with doors leading through to the garden and the pretty en suite double upstairs which can also be made up as a twin. The third and fourth bedroom are combined – a bedroom with an inviting king-size double bed and balcony with valley views towards Gordes combined with a mezzanine level bedroom above with a smaller double beneath the eaves.

Outside is simply gorgeous with little shady paths, olive trees, picturesque spots for al-fresco dining and relaxation alongside the wonderful swimming pool and field beyond – such a huge amount of space in such a calming environment. The Luberon views from Villa Capucine, set on its own hilltop, are just superb.

You can potter along the country road to reach the characterful local village with its boulangerie, épicerie and bistro or drive slightly further afield to Coustellet with its lovely shops and Sunday morning Farmer’s market. Then in one direction you can experience the charm of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and beauty of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or head east towards the iconic perched villages of the Luberon including Gordes, Ménerbes and Roussillon.

Discover some lovely walks in and around the local village and beyond, visit the vineyards of the Luberon, cycle along the Véloroute du Calavon or canoe along the Sorgue River. Venturing to the art galleries of St Rémy, the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Avignon or the fantastic market of historic Apt are just some of the other Provençal experiences so easily reached from this delightful holiday abode in the Vaucluse.

Villa Capucine is set within its own vast grounds on a hilltop with glorious views of the Luberon valley from its swimming pool, just a 10-minute walk from a pretty village and equidistant from the towns of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Cavaillon.

Stroll along the country road (no pavement) to reach the local village and explore its charming stone lanes coming across beautiful houses, a boulangerie, butchers, épicerie-tabac and restaurant. There are some attractive walks from the village including a hiking track to Le Mur de La Peste. A little further afield, find excellent shops, a larger supermarket and a Farmer’s market on a Sunday morning in the small village of Coustellet (3km), also home to the Lavender Museum.

With the gorgeous waterwheels and antique stores of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (11km) in one direction and the iconic perched villages of the Luberon in the other, this is a fantastic base for exploring this captivating part of the Vaucluse and beyond. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is especially atmospheric on a Sunday morning when the brocante takes place, one of southern France’s most famous markets. You are also well located for visiting the incredible landscapes around Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, perfect for long hikes and canoeing/kayaking opportunities.

Gordes (8.5km), Ménerbes (10km) and Roussillon (16km) are classified as three of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and all worthy of a visit for their rich history, wonderful markets and stunning views of the Luberon scenery from summer sunflower fields and cherry orchards to pine forests and ochre landscapes. Other nearby gems include Bonnieux (18km) and Lacoste (15km) whilst the handsome town of Apt (25km) hosts the region’s largest market on a Saturday morning.

The Luberon is a paradise for guests seeking walking trails, cycling routes, rock-climbing near Buoux and wine-tasting across the AOC Luberon vineyards and wineries. Admire the summer lavender near Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque (11km) or venture further to Sault (41km) to visit its lavender farms and distilleries.

Other brilliant day trips include the small city of Avignon (33km) with its UNESCO World Heritage sites, the art galleries of Van Gogh’s Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (37km) and the delightful shops, restaurants and historic buildings of Aix-en-Provence (68km), so loved by Cézanne and many artists over the generations.

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

Children can experience a range of adventures across this part of Provence during their stay at Villa Capucine.

Start off in nearby Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, around a 15-minute drive away, for canoeing and kayaking along the Sorgue River as well as incredible hikes. Slightly closer is a tree-top adventure centre with trails for various ages as well as other family attractions including a small leisure park (summer holidays only) with paintballing and mini-golf and Nestor le Castor (summer weekends and holidays) for inflatables, games and little rides.

Heading towards Avignon or Carpentras, the caves at Grottes de Thouzon can be reached in under half an hour whilst Parc Spirou and Wave Island are two other attractions just slightly further north.

If visiting Avignon for the day with youngsters, look out for the tourist road train to tour you around the main sights or hire bikes with older children to cycle over to the Rhône’s largest river island, île de la Barthelasse.

Back in the Luberon, there are some fantastic walks, rock-climbing opportunities and cycling trails. Just to the south, La Véloroute du Calavon passes near Coustellet, following a former railway track so much loved by keen cycling families.
