Located in a little hamlet within easy driving distance of many of Provence’s most idyllic villages, Villa Safran is perfectly placed for a holiday in this lovely part of southeastern France. With views of the Luberon hillsides, beautiful interiors and outside grounds of 2000m2, it’s the ultimate retreat.

Featuring a large pool framed by comfy sun loungers, grassy lawns, various seating areas and al-fresco dining spots, there is ample space to relax outdoors in the sunshine. There’s nothing better than tucking into a delicious summer feast in the balmy evening air.

Inside you will find charming traditional features like stone floors, exposed brick and a lofty fireplace. Two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms styled in a relaxed country way sleep up to 8 guests, while a cosy living room provides the space for everyone to socialise or curl up in front of the fire at night.

A selection of restaurants, cafés and shops can be found in Gordes, 5km away, which also boasts a fascinating old town and a wonderful market selling everything from food to clothes.

The delightful villages of Ménerbes, Maubec and Joucas are all within easy reach, as is the picturesque town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Featuring a network of canals, pretty walkways and waterside cafés, it’s also the antiques capital of the region, with a flea market taking place every Sunday morning.

The city of Avignon’s World Heritage sites await, as do many walking and cycling trails through the Luberon forest trails.

Villa Safran is ideally located in a small hamlet in the heart of Provence, surrounded by scenic countryside but within easy reach of some of the region’s most beautiful towns.  

A fantastic selection of restaurants, cafés and shops can be found in Gordes (5km), as well as supermarkets for stocking up on local produce and provisions. Cavaillon (14km) also boasts a fascinating old town and a street market which sells food, clothes and antiques.

The villages of Cabrières-d'Avignon, Maubec and Joucas are a short drive away and L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, often known as the ‘Venice of Provence’, is also nearby. It’s famous for its sprawling antiques market, with some 300 stalls winding through the town’s cobbled streets.

The quaint village of Eygalières offers stunning views of the Alpilles hills and makes a great pit stop when hiking through the olive groves and vineyards.

Spend a wonderful day in Avignon, a bustling city with excellent cuisine, fun bars and fascinating historic monuments, including two UNESCO listed sites.

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: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

In the Luberon region of Provence, only 5km from the idyllic hilltop village of Gordes, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, this is a glorious region for families with a wealth of outdoor adventures for every age.

As well as picturesque walks through the Luberon landscapes, there are some great cycling trails through this part of Provence and beyond including La Véloroute du Cavalon, popular with families as it is a paved path that follows a former railway line.

Hire kayaks and canoes to admire the gorgeous landscapes of the Sorgue River or perhaps you would prefer the tree-top adventure centre near Fontaine-de-Vaucluse which features trails for a variety of ages, depending on height.

Families may enjoy the lavender fields near Gordes which usually smell so amazing from late June to early August. Further afield around 40km away, Sault is also known for its lavender and you can visit its lavender farms, some of which feature donkeys and other animals.

Heading towards Carpentras, train enthusiasts will appreciate the model railways at Le Jarditrain or spend time discovering the fascinating caves at Grottes de Thouzon.
