Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Laptop Friendly Workspace Parking Space

Located just outside Villars, this imaginatively restored farmhouse is a fantastic choice for those seeking the unique ambience of Provence with a touch of contemporary style. Fusing modern living with spectacular hillside views, this stylish house will enchant you as soon as you arrive.

The open-plan living space showcases awe-inspiring views of the nearby Vaucluse hills courtesy of grand floor-to-ceiling windows. Recline on the sofa, uncork a bottle of Luberon wine, and drink in the incredible scenery synonymous with Southern France. A workstation sits just up the three steps, also positioned for a stunning view while you type. Quirky and diverse artwork from around the world adorns this elegant interior, with a beautifully hand-painted scooter and rider’s helmet arguably stealing the show.

This meticulously curated living space continues to a charming wooden dining table, seating up to eight people and a superbly equipped kitchen, where you can get creative with some of Provence’s incredible produce. The kitchen features a central island - for extra preparation space, an induction hob and a ceiling-suspended extractor fan. Tasteful cabinets frame the integrated oven and microwave. The washing machine and large American-style fridge/freezer sit discreetly in a utility room at the end of the kitchen.

When in Provence, you can truly understand the meaning of ‘relax and unwind’. In keeping with that mood, you can be assured of a blissful night of sleep at Villa Mika, which sleeps up to eight guests, with all bedrooms at ground level. The master bedroom features a fabulously comfortable large double bed, a chaise longue and en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bathtub. Continue through the en-suite to discover a sauna with a floor-to-ceiling window and shower room. The second bedroom also has a large double bed, which can be separated into two singles. An additional double sofa bed is available in the office, which also features a desk and chair.

The third bedroom in this delightfully appointed property lies within its additional apartment, whose contemporary interior complements the building’s history. The apartment walls retain parts of its previous incarnation as a Provençal farmhouse, blending modern design with architectural culture. Two guests can enjoy a comfortable open-plan living space, a dining table, and a well-appointed kitchen. A walk-in shower room completes the interior of this hideaway, with a private terrace, gas plancha and dining table outside - perfect for dining outdoors on balmy nights.

Of course, staying in the Provence countryside is mostly about soaking up the magnificent scenery and ambience. Villa Mika’s rear terrace alone epitomises this spirit quite beautifully, with sun loungers on which to while away the hours, gazing contentedly at the phenomenal views, not to mention its irresistible, superbly designed pool. With its walls built from some of the ruins of the farmhouse that occupied this enchanting location many years ago, this pool incorporates a lounging area and infinity edge, from which you can immerse yourself.

Villa Mika is just south of the sleepy Luberon village of Villars, whose ochre-coloured architecture epitomises the history and charm of the Provence countryside. During a visit to Villars, there are three restaurants to choose from, all of which serve excellent local food. There is also a village bar, where you can relax with a glass of local wine while admiring the view from the hillside.

Slightly larger but no less stunning villages are all within a thirty-minute drive too. Roussillion, Menerbes and Gordes, in particular, all have a lot more in the way of independent shops, art galleries and eateries, as well as the chance to soak in a multitude of awe-inspiring views as you meander along the hilly streets.

If you wish to sample some traditional Provençal hospitality, you will be truly spoiled for choice. However, if home cooking is more your thing, the area is well-served with fresh produce stores, with two supermarkets also short distances away. If your stay incorporates a Tuesday morning, the vibrant and colourful weekly market at the castle square in Gordes is an absolute treat. Wonderfully fragrant soaps made with local lavender, clothes and fabrics feature prominently and a spectacular selection of artisanal bread, cheese, olive oil and much more.

A little over ten minutes away from Villa Mika and open between March and October, the Mines de Bruoux in Gargas offers a showcase of the Provençal region’s natural beauty and fascinating insights into the history of these stunning ochre quarries. Guided tours are available, taking you on a stunning route through underground galleries with centuries of rich history. Children under six can visit free of charge, while more mature visitors can partake in a ‘Wine and Adventure’ session, including a guided tour followed by wine tasting.

If you crave an adrenaline-fuelled experience in this tranquil region, look no further than Colorado Aventures, which opens between April and early November. Here, just a twenty-minute drive from Villa Mika, you can head up on the treetop adventure course, enjoy a fun game of laser tag, take a bungee jump, or even be propelled from a human catapult!
