Overview

Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

The story began with a dream… the dream of a family who discovered three old stone hamlets in the beautiful Luberon and who decided to restore them, to plant organic vines and fruit trees and to nurture the land with great love and respect.

The result is three beautifully restored stone hamlets spread out across 40 hectares of rolling hills and typical Provençal landscape. Le Hameau de l’Horizon, Le Hameau du Berger and Villa Les Terrasses.

Villa Les Terrasses is a high quality private villa with pool perched up high on a site surrounded by olive trees and breath-taking views across the landscape to Mount Lure and the Alpes beyond. Up here it’s all about nature, peace and extraordinary calm.

Several beautifully furnished terraces have been designed to make the most of the view, the sunshine and the shade, so that guests can find bliss at every moment of the day and evening. Villa Les Terrasses enjoys 11 hectares with landscaped gardens designed by Jean-Noël Capart and a stunning heated swimming pool nestled amongst the olive trees and the landscape.

Inside the villa is charming and tasteful throughout, with five en-suite bedrooms, a large dining room, large living room with magnificent fireplace and a delightful kitchen with dining area.

Villa Les Terrasses is an exceptional villa offering peace and quiet and a real feeling of being at one with nature and this truly beautiful part of France.

Viens is an ancient village with a medieval atmosphere boasting many original features including the clock tower and the two Maisons de Monier. It is located on the border of the Alpes-de-Haute Provence, the heart of the Luberon and surrounded by beautiful lavender fields, providing you with boundless activities and attractions for all the family.

Close by is also Oppedette, a small village surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Like many of the small villages in the region, it remains unchanged, maintaining much of its original charm and beauty with only a few small amenities including a café and town hall.

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 quint 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. Other activities include the Barben Zoo, Accrobranche and horse-riding.

The town of Apt, with its sprawling weekly market each Saturday and Tuesday is an unmissable trip: a gem full of charm and tradition with winding streets and ancient fountains. Indulge in the local cuisine and delicacies in one of the many pavement cafes with views of the Luberon and sweet smelling lavender surround you.

Villa Les Terrasses is within close driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes and Roussillon. Famous Avignon, the capital of Provence, and Aix-en-Provence, one of France's most beautiful university towns, are only about 1hr30mins away from this Provencal hamlet.

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!

  • Amazing Stay!

    Posted by Madeline on 23/05/2018

    Lovely house in beautiful location. Service and attention to detail excellent!

  • 5* Weekend

    Posted by Gwendolyn D on 10/10/2016

    What a magnificent place! Certainly an address not to be forgotten! We thoroughly enjoyed our 5* weekend of activities and delicious gastronomy. A huge thank you to you all!

  • Idyllic Haven

    Posted by Nicolas G on 05/09/2016

    How could you not be happy in this idyllic haven on the hillside? A perfect location to discover a taste of the Luberon. The supper cooked and served to us by the staff was a true experience of the Terroir of the region, then we indulged in a midnight soak in the pool under the stars.
    The location is magical, the staff and quality of service is of the highest standard, offering delicious wines and beautiful weather…who could demand for more?

  • When can we return?

    Posted by Bertrand H on 03/09/2016

    This holiday was a great success from all points of view: a charming setting to sleep and celebrate, quality organic produce cooked by the top chefs, and finally, the icing on the cake, the team of staff were totally fantastic and always ready for a bit of fun and a laugh! The only thing that remains is…when do we return?
