In a spectacular location on the edge of a rocky peak, with mesmerising wild views around you and minutes from the village of Venasque, this ultra-modern home is sure to impress you in its style as well as location. 

Designed in a way to harmonise with its natural environment, this contemporary home is luminous with light flooding in from its vast windows on every floor. Each of the luxurious bedrooms has its own bathroom and wide sliding doors leading to a balcony with views or a calming garden terrace. Follow the stairs to the top floor and discover the amazing observatory where you can gaze at the stars as the night falls.

The owner has used only the finest furnishings and most stylish décor in this remarkable home, as is evident in the stunning open-plan living space with its cool kitchen, breakfast bar and sumptuous sofas, leading out to the vast decked covered terrace for long meals al-fresco surrounded by the sights and sounds of the nature of Provence. With sleek, fashionable outdoor furniture this area is sure to impress as you relax on the vast decking or wander across to the pristine heated swimming pool.

The high level will equally exceed your expectations with the possibility of a daily breakfast delivery, in-house catering and babysitting on request as well as additional maid service, bike rental and the booking of private tour guides.

Just a few minutes away is the heart of one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, Venasque, a beautiful and historical Provençal village in an equally stunning location on the edge of a rocky peak. There are a few shops, cafes and restaurants and in the summer flowers fill the narrow, steep streets. Make sure you sample some of the delicious local cherries if you are staying in the early summer.

Head to Carpentras on a Friday morning for its unmissable market and don’t miss the lively city of Avignon during your stay with its two UNESCO world heritage sites.

Furthermore, you are perfectly located for the glorious Luberon region and archetypal Provencal villages such as Bonnieux, Roussillon and Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes, another one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages.

The wine routes nearby are incredible whilst other more family friendly activities include horse-riding and tree-top activity centres nearby plus a zoo and model railway both within an hours drive.

At the end of your day exploring you’ll return to your calm and cool home where you can gaze at the starry night in this incredible part of southern France.

One of France’s Plus Beaux Villages due to its stunning location on top of a rocky peak, Venasque (1km) is a beautiful and historical Provençal village. There are a few shops, cafes and restaurants and in the summer flowers fill the narrow, steep streets. Make sure you sample some of the delicious local cherries if you are staying in the early summer.

Head north to Carpentras (17km) with its historical buildings and stunning architecture as well as an unmissable market on a Friday morning. There are also some lovely walking trails around the town to see the surrounding flora and fauna or there is even a nearby wine circuit to follow.

Don’t miss the lively city of Avignon (44km) during your stay. Explore the winding medieval streets, experience further excellent dining opportunities and visit two UNESCO world heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge. The covered market offers all sorts of delights or head to the weekend farmers, flower and flea markets for wonderful local produce and a bargain or two.

The village is perfectly located for the glorious Luberon to the south-east. Here you are within driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Roussillon and Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes (16km), one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages. Within the Luberon National Park the charming villages and beautiful scenery offer an ideal setting for hiking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue. Many of the idyllic hilltop villages have maintained their original features with castles, caves and historical artefacts to discover, including one of the most spectacular at La Tour d’Aigues which still has its dungeons. There are climbing opportunities near Buoux, a tiny village with a castle not to be missed and now a mecca for rock-climbing. 

The wine routes nearby are incredible whilst other more family friendly activities include horse-riding and tree-top activity centres nearby plus a zoo and model railway both within an hours drive.

You are also within a short drive of Les Alpilles National Park, a formidable area of vineyards, idyllic villages and more stunning landscapes. St-Rémy (58km) is well known for being popular with artists, many live in the area and display or sell their works of art in the village’s art galleries. Les Baux-de-Provence (67km), one of France’s acclaimed ‘plus beaux villages’ and fascinating Arles (84km) can also be visited within a day.

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!

Provence is a wonderful place for families. There is a wealth of characterful villages, towns and cities to discover across the region. Explore Avignon by the little train that takes you across the city including the Pont d’Avignon or take a boat trip across the Rhone. Visit a typical Provencal market and try some amazing new foods or simply wander around charming villages soaking up the atmosphere and admiring artists at work.

Create memories by kayaking along the Sorgue or hire canoes by the magnificent Pont du Gard, near Nimes. This part of Provence also offers wonderful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding in the area.

Train lovers will adore the model railway, the JardiTrain, just south of Carpentras or the more adventurous can discover the fantastic Tree-Top activity centres in the Luberon, Nimes or Salon-de-Provence. Animal lovers should head to Zoo La Barben with over 600 species of animals across several hectares of land.
