This stunning villa overlooking the exquisite valley below is sure to enchant the entire family. Just a 10 minute walk (via a quiet country road) from the centre of a quaint village situated in the beautiful Provençal countryside, Villa Paulette’s location couldn’t be better. Sit back and unwind as you sip a glass of wine on one of the two glorious balconies as you take in the spectacular surrounding scenery.

The exterior of this typical French-style abode oozes charm whilst the interior offers a more modern feel. Allow yourself to be amazed as you step into this spacious abode with a fully equipped kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, open plan dining and living area and even a baby grand piano! Moreover, this home away from home comes with a laundry room equipped with a washing machine.

The outdoor area of Villa Paulette is even more magical with a gorgeous covered summer room to laze in and two sizable balconies with outdoor furniture and unforgettable views of the valley below. The garden space surrounded by natural shrubbery will instantly relax you. Spend your days soaking up the sun in this peaceful outdoor area or take a dip in the inviting pool.

As well as being in an incredible countryside setting this home is just a short walk from the heart of a captivating medieval village. Have a wander through the idyllic streets and admire the splendid old stone houses and remarkable 12th century Château. This area is not as well-known as other popular tourist spots and therefore you have the pleasure of getting a taste of authentic Provençal daily life.

Villa Paulette is located in the Luberon Regional Nature Park meaning that there are many terrific walking trails and nearby nature sites to explore. What’s more, you have an ample choice of vineyards and wineries to visit close by where you can sample some excellent wine. Moreover, Villa Paulette is the ideal base to explore the rest of the Luberon and the many delights it has to offer.

Villa Paulette offers a spectacular location being a ten minute walk along a country road from the heart of a charming, hilltop village situated in the Luberon Regional Nature Park. Roam the delightful streets and marvel at the captivating stone houses. You can’t miss the striking Château which dates back to the 12th century. You cannot currently enter it but it is certainly worth admiring from the outside.

Additionally, this magnificent village benefits from being surrounded by some exceptional nature spots. There are a number of fantastic nature trails around the villa for avid hikers or cyclists such as La Combe de Vaumale.

What’s more, there are some impressive forests and woods to explore nearby. For example, the majestic Forêt Domaniale de Vénasque is a short 15 minute drive away. In addition, you can reach the phenomenal Bois de Bourrade in 20 minutes by car. There are also plenty of vineyards and wineries close by where you can treat yourself to an authentic wine tasting experience, the closest being only a 15 minute drive away from Villa Paulette.

Moreover, there are many fabulous landmarks and museums to see nearby such as the astounding Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque located a 20 minute drive away from the villa, just outside the village of Gordes. The sensational architecture of this Abbey and its enchanting surrounding lavender fields will leave you speechless. You can learn all about the history of these Provençal lavender fields at the Musée de la Lavande Luberon, also a 20 minute drive away.

This home is situated in the perfect location to explore the rest of the Luberon, with the tremendous villages of Gordes and Roussillon only 15 minutes away by car. Whilst in Gordes be sure to visit the amazing Village des Bories, an open-air museum with old stone huts. It is truly fascinating! Additionally, you will be enthralled by the technicolour of Roussillon. As you stroll the streets you can gaze in wonder at the eye-catching red, yellow and orange buildings. Make sure to visit the Roussillon Ochre where you will be in awe of the reddish orange cliffs.

Furthermore, you can easily take a day trip to the more lively cities of Aix-en Provence and Avignon. Aix-en-Provence is roughly an hour and a half away from Villa Paulette by car whilst Avignon is only an hour’s drive away.

Reviews

  • Fullness, tranquility, distance from city life, simplicity

    on 01/09/2022

    Located on the sunny heights, the feelings of fullness, tranquility, distance from city life, simplicity, being in a natural space are my first impressions for this property outside the summer bustle of the plains. From the terrace, you can settle down in the evening under the starry sky and in the morning wake up at dawn to observe, below, the daily flight of the hot air balloon over the plain.
