Villa Ripert is in a countryside location and has astounding views of the Luberon Mountains and open countryside. The valley below is topped with the picturesque hilltop villages of Bonnieux and Lacoste which are both stunningly beautiful and well worth visiting.

Roussillon is approximately 2km from the property and dates back to Roman times and is one of the most recognisable villages in France. The village is visually unforgettable with its beautiful Ochre Houses and there are plenty of amenities including charming restaurants, cafes, bakeries, specialist shops and art galleries. Place de la Maire (Town hall square) is simply stunning and is the spot ‘instagrammers’ head to!

You can pick up fresh local produce at the weekly market each Thursday morning and a walk to the top of the village will take you to the 17th century church of St Michel where you can enjoy magnificent mountainous views.

The Ochre trail (Sentier des Ochre) will delight kids big and small. The trail starts in the middle of the village and there is an easy or harder trail option. Well signed paths through the old open pit ochre quarry will help you learn more about this unique area as you pass by spectacular cliffs and structures in stunning colours.

Only a short drive away are an abundance of beautiful villages such as Lacoste famous for its Castle, formally home to the Marquis de Sade and now home to Pierre Cardin, Sault for its Lavender fields and L’isle Sur la Sorgue for its canals and antique market, however try squeeze in a visit to Gordes as it has been called the most beautiful village in France.

Perched on a rocky peninsula in the Vaucluse mountains at the heart of the Luberon Regional National Park, Gordes is gorgeous with stone houses, cobbled streets dotted with fountains and an 11th century Renaissance castle dominating the landscape. A visit to the castle's fantastic art exhibitions should be on the tick list and L’Eglise Saint Fermin Church and the Sénanque Abbey, surrounded by lavender fields, are truly sights worth seeing.

Aix-en-Provence is a wonderful city and is less than an hour’s drive from the property. Upmarket and classy with leafy boulevards lined with 17th & 18th century mansions Aix offers chic shopping and fabulous street markets in its part pedestrianised centre. Cours Mirabeau is the 440metre long Main Boulevard. The light reflected from the warm coloured stone buildings has inspired artists such as Cezanne and here you can stroll past its magnificent fountains, centuries old trees and characterful pavement cafes.

With over 600 winegrowers in Provence there’s no shortage of vineyards to visit so look up the ‘Provence Wine Route’ to find the best places to sample wonderful rosés or the famous Chateauneuf du Pape.
