Enjoy the luxury of two stylish villas next door to each other, set amongst the idyllic vines of a beautiful Luberon vineyard owned by a famous Hollywood filmmaker. Below the perched village of Oppède le Vieux, each of the houses features its own gently heated swimming pool and picture-perfect garden, allowing these wonderful abodes to sleep up to 12 guests.

Across both houses guests can appreciate the homes’ contemporary style alongside a true sense of Provençal charm with elegant furnishings, chic décor, artwork and even the occasional prop from the owner’s illustrious career. Not to mention high-end features including air-conditioning throughout, Smart TVs and iPod docks. The grounds of the two homes are connected via a door in the garden wall.

Starting off at Villa Grenade, make the most of the spacious ground floor with two inviting lounges and a gorgeous open-plan kitchen-diner with doors opening out to the covered terrace and garden. Upstairs are three sumptuous bedrooms, all with king-size double beds and en suite bathrooms. Outside, the garden boasts the sights and scents of Provence with lavender, pines, cypress trees and views towards the Luberon hills alongside the glorious swimming pool.

Next door is Villa Pamplemousse, equally as attractive with its wood-beamed lounge, sleek kitchen and three en suite bedrooms, one of which is situated in a garden annexe. We love the summer kitchen and barbecue overlooking the olive trees in the pretty garden as well as Villa Pamplemousse’s own swimming pool. Imagine relaxing on one of the terraces with a glass of the estate’s aromatic wines as you soak up the calming ambience of this special place.

Indeed, you will have the opportunity to sample some of the domaine’s wines on your complimentary hour-long winery tour whilst the estate’s wine shop is only a short stroll away. The winery also showcases some of the owner’s iconic costumes and sets – such a unique experience in Provence!

Discover the local boulangerie, café, restaurants and a small grocery store in the nearby village, around 1.5km away, and drive up to the perched village of Oppède le Vieux with its enchanting ambience, rich heritage and incredible vistas.

Hilltop Ménerbes is also close by, a village full of charm and beauty made especially famous by Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’ whilst other stunning villages of the Luberon include Gordes, Bonnieux and Roussillon. Look out for weekly markets, gastronomic restaurants, family-run wineries and a wealth of beautiful walks, hikes and cycle rides passing orchards, poppy fields, woodland and vineyards.

Other highlights of this part of Provence include L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse or venture to Avignon for a fine day out exploring the city’s wine-bars, restaurants, bustling markets and two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Palais des Papes and Le Pont d’Avignon.

What you should know…

  • Villa Pamplemousse and Villa Grenade consist of two separate villas next door to each other - there is a door in the garden wall connecting the grounds of the two houses. They otherwise each have their own private swimming pool and parking area. 
  • They can also be rented separately (see Villa Pamplemousse and Villa Grenade).
  • The gorgeous Le Soleil D’Or is within the same wine estate, around 200m away.
  • This villa is not suitable for children under the age of 12 – this is due to various reasons including the fact that there are works of art and unique furnishings/pieces across the home as well as the desire to create a calm ambience across the grounds.
  • Please note the attentive Property Manager is usually on-site in her office (just across the road) on week days.

Below the perched village of Oppède le Vieux, Villa Pamplemousse and Villa Grenade are located within a large wine-estate owned by a Hollywood filmmaker in the Luberon region of Provence. If arriving by aeroplane the three closest airports are Avignon (29km), Marseille (68km) and Nîmes (80km) whilst Avignon’s TGV train station is 42km away with arrivals from Paris Gare de Lyon and Lille.

Within the approximately 30-hectare wine estate the family follow traditional Provençal winegrowing methods whilst respecting the estate’s environment and producing the wine in their new modern cellar. A one-hour ‘classic’ tour and private tasting of the full range of the estate’s wines is included in your villa rental. You can also visit the estate’s shop, just a short walk away, which is open daily from June to September (or five days a week at other times of year).  

It’s around a 1.5km walk along local country roads (no pavement) or a very short drive to the small local village with its restaurants, a grocery store and boulangerie. Coustellet (6.5km) is home to a couple of good-sized supermarkets and some lovely shops as well as a Farmer’s market on a Sunday morning. Both the Musée de l'Huile d'Olive (3.5km) and the the Lavender Museum (6.5km) are also within easy reach.

Take time to drive up to the exquisite perched village of Oppède le Vieux (4km) where you can step back in time as you potter around its medieval heart and appreciate the incredible views around you. Enjoy walks and hikes in and around the village and admire the vistas from Église Notre-Dame Dalidon.

Passing orchards, vineyards, farmland and forests, explore other gorgeous villages of the Luberon. Hilltop Ménerbes (3.5km) is idyllic with its restaurants, weekly market and characterful lanes – the village inspired Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’. Gordes (12km) attracts artists thanks to its beautiful light and hosts a charming Tuesday morning market whilst visitors are enchanted by the beauty of red-hued Roussillon and its surrounding ochre-coloured landscapes. The Saturday morning market in the handsome town of Apt (22km) is another great attraction of the Luberon – regional specialities include candied fruit, lavender products, cherries, Cavaillon melons, cheeses, charcuterie, olive oil and of course wine.

Beyond the Luberon, soak up the ambience of the Sunday morning brocante in delightful L’Isle sur La Sorgue (17km) with its waterwheels, antique stores and pretty town centre. Canoe or kayak along the Sorgue near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (17km) and discover fantastic hiking opportunities. The Vaucluse also offers wonderful cycling routes from challenging circuits to gentle family-friendly trails as well as horse-riding, mountain biking and rock-climbing.

The small city of Avignon is another brilliant day out thanks to its restaurants, wine-bars, markets and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Visit the Wednesday morning market in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (35km), venture to the art galleries and Roman sites of Arles (65km), sample wines across the Luberon and Rhône valley or even drive to Aix-en-Provence (62km), just over an hour away, to visit the iconic University town which so inspired the likes of Cézanne.

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: Teens

Villa Pamplemousse and Villa Grenade do not allow children under the age of 12.

Older children/teens can nevertheless appreciate the beautiful gardens and swimming pools alongside facilities within the two villas.

There are many wonderful walks and more challenging hikes to be enjoyed across the Luberon and beyond. Outdoor adventurists can also experience rock-climbing near Buoux, horse-riding close to Joucas and mountain biking across the landscapes. Discover canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse whilst there are tree-top adventure centres close to Lagnes (Passerelles des Cîmes) and Roussillon (Colorado Aventures).

Keen cyclists can hire bikes to admire the local scenery whether you wish to try challenging circuits or family-friendly trails. The Luberon is home to a lovely ‘voie-verte’ called La Véloroute du Calavon which follows a former railway line near the Calavon River from Beaumettes to Apt - the majority of the route is vehicle-free.

If visiting Avignon for the day, why not hire bikes and cycle over the bridge to explore the Rhône’s largest river island, île de la Barthelasse, where there are stunning views of the historic city from the other side of the river. There is also a tourist road train that tours the sights including Avignon’s two UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Other attractions between Avignon and Carpentras include the caves at Grottes de Thouzon, Wave Island waterpark and the popular theme park, Parc Spirou Provence. Heading south, Zoo Barben is less than an hour away by car, a great day out for animal lovers.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner?

1992.

Are there any interesting stories in its history? 

Before the 19th century, the surrounding region, the ‘Comtat Venaissin’, belonged to the papacy and, at that time, the Mas was a place of healing, probably run by Italian nuns.

The first official mention of the Mas appeared on the land register of Napoleon in 1831. The estate then belonged to the General Baron Robert, one of the illustrious generals and surgeon or "health officer" of Napoleon’s army. 

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really...

Must do? See the art and light exhibition in the quarry at Les Baux-de-Provence.

Must eat? If you make a day trip to Marseille, then a real Bouillabaisse at Chez FonFon.

Must see? The views from the top of Mont Ventoux on a clear day - the road along the Gorges de la Nesque is the most amazing route there and back.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

There are so many gorgeous little villages to explore, enjoy them by going earlier in the morning before the masses arrive so that after a wonderful lunch out, you can come back to the villa to enjoy the peaceful serenity in the garden and around the pool.

Reviews

  • A fantastic stay!

    on 22/09/2023

    A haven of peace nestled in the lands of the Luberon. We had a fantastic stay there, full of family memories, in a refined house conducive to relaxation. We were happy to meet the host who took great care throughout the stay. We will come back next year for sure!

  • Absolute perfection

    on 20/09/2023

    Villa Grenade is absolute perfection! The location was quiet and peaceful yet conveniently close to the many beautiful surrounding villages, markets, shops & restaurants. The home was spotlessly clean, and the beds and linens were 5 star. The kitchen is large, chic and was very well equipped. All of the home’s furnishings were beautiful & comfortable and made the overall feeling of the house very light, airy and luxurious. The pool and outdoor living areas were all pristine and beautiful as well. My husband and I have rented many luxury homes in this area over the past fifteen years and Villa Grenade far exceeded all of the others. The winery, which is a part of the domaine is a short walk away and their wines were divine. Perhaps the best perk was that the property manager was so incredibly attentive and went above and beyond to make our stay so perfect! I highly recommend Villa Grenade!

  • Most wonderful, relaxing stay

    on 31/08/2023

    We enjoyed the most wonderful, relaxing stay at Villa Grenade. The property has been exquisitely renovated to the highest standard. It’s well located for exploring many beautiful villages and is an easy drive to nearby shops. The adjacent winery is a must visit and a short walk from the house. The Property Manager is incredible attentive and helpful. We very much hope to return soon.

  • Unparalleled luxury and tranquility

    on 16/08/2023

    Our family enjoyed this true gem that offers an unparalleled experience of luxury and tranquility. The idyllic location, exquisite interiors, large and well-equipped kitchen as well as the private pool made this home an ideal quiet holiday retreat where we could disconnect from the noise of everyday life. The property manager deserves a special mention for her attentive and friendly service. From providing local recommendations to ensuring the villa is well-maintained, her dedication added a personal touch to our stay, making us feel welcomed.

  • Complete joy

    on 17/06/2023

    This property is even lovelier in person, we had an amazing stay. The property manager who welcomed us (and continued to look after us) was heaven. We were even spoiled with some local produce and wine on arrival. It's a beautifully decorated and kept place with everything you could possibly need. Unbelievably comfortable beds and big spacious showers. Everyone we encountered, like the cleaners, were so sweet and friendly. It was a complete joy being there and we were so sad to leave.
