In a spectacular setting on the edge of a rocky peak, with mesmerising wild views and just 1km from a gorgeous hilltop village, this ultra-modern home is sure to impress with its style as well as location.  

Designed in a way to sit in beautiful harmony with its natural environment, this contemporary home is luminous with light flooding in from its vast windows on every floor. Each of the four luxurious bedrooms has its own bathroom and wide sliding doors leading to a balcony with views or a calming garden terrace.

The owner has used only the finest furnishings and most stylish décor in this remarkable home, as is evident in the stunning open-plan living space with its cool kitchen, breakfast bar and sumptuous sofas, leading out to the vast decked covered terrace for long meals al-fresco surrounded by the sights and sounds of the nature of Provence. With sleek, fashionable outdoor furniture this area is sure to amaze as you relax on the vast decking or wander across to the pristine swimming pool.

The hospitable level of service will equally exceed your expectations with the possibility of wine-tasting in your home, a Provençal chef and babysitting on request as well as bike rental and the booking of private tour guides.

Just 1km away is the heart of one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, a beautiful and historic perched village with glorious views of vineyards and fruit trees. There is a handful of shops, cafes and restaurants and summer flowers fill the narrow, steep streets. Make sure you sample some of the delicious local cherries if you are staying in the early summer.

Head to nearby Carpentras on a Friday morning for its unmissable market and spend time in the lively city of Avignon with its two UNESCO world heritage sites. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue on a Sunday morning is also a must with its famous brocante or visit any day of the week to admire its little antique shops and picturesque setting.

Furthermore, you are perfectly located for the glorious Luberon region and archetypal Provençal villages such as Bonnieux, Roussillon and Van Gogh’s beloved Gordes, another one of France’s 'Plus Beaux Villages'.

At the end of your day exploring you’ll return to your calm and cool home where you can gaze at the starry night in this incredible part of southern France.

In the Vaucluse region of Provence, Villa Sommet is only 1km from one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Set on a rocky peak with wonderful views of vineyards, fruit trees and other wild landscapes, this historic Provençal village is a joy to explore. Stroll around its flower-filled narrow, steep lanes coming across a handful of charming restaurants and shops. The local cherries are a delicacy of this area and can be found in local markets in early summer.

The bustling Friday morning market in nearby Carpentras is not to be missed if you arrive early enough or head there on other days to admire the town’s beautiful architecture. Pernes-les-Fontaines is another delightful place to explore with its many fountains, fascinating historic buildings and twice-weekly market selling all sorts of seasonal produce from the surrounding farmland such as pears, melons, almonds, strawberries, asparagus and more. Nearby vines produce a lovely sparkling wine that you will no doubt find in some of the village’s restaurants and bars.

Wine-lovers will also appreciate the many other wine routes across this part of Provence whether heading up towards the Rhône valley or visiting the vineyards of the Luberon.

Indeed, you are perfectly located for visiting much of the glorious Luberon region to the south-east with archetypal Provençal villages such as Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes and Roussillon reached within a 45-minute drive. Even closer is Gordes (16km), another one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ which was much loved by Van Gogh. Across the Luberon you will find stunning landscapes for hiking and cycling as well as many rock-climbing opportunities and ancient caves to visit.

L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (20km) is another gem of this area with its picturesque canals, water-wheels, riverside restaurants and characterful antique shops – the Sunday morning brocante is one of the most famous in southern France. Furthermore, canoeing or kayaking along the Sorgue river is a wonderful way to admire the surrounding scenery.

Cycling is another popular pursuit with trails throughout Vaucluse. The village of Bédoin (18km) is a mecca for cyclists and of course you are in close proximity to Mont Ventoux, famed for its challenging climb in the Tour de France.

The small but lively city of Avignon is a fine day out with its two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Pope’s Palace and Saint Benezet Bridge, as well as many fantastic markets and restaurants. Or head south-west towards Les Alpilles with picture-perfect villages and towns such as Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Eygalières and Les Baux-de-Provence just over an hour away by car.

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!

Reviews

  • Wonderful relaxing holiday

    Posted by Calum on 21/07/2022

    The house is very well designed, with very spacious bedrooms with air conditioning throughout. The pool was a good size and the spacious terraces were comfortable with different shaded parts and great views. A gentle walk into the village for the essential morning croissants and some great longer walks in the surrounding countryside. Above all nothing was too much trouble for the owner's staff, incredibly responsive to our slightest request. The gardener even recommended and booked a local garage to fix the air conditioning in one of our cars. Wonderful relaxing holiday.

  • Un très beau cadre!

    Posted by Bart on 21/08/2020

    Villa Sommet offre un panorama unique sur la nature et sur un paysage verdoyant. La villa moderne au design très contemporain nous a permis de passer un séjour très reposant. Nous recommandons de réserver le chef à domicile qui cuisine merveilleusement bien ainsi que le sommelier, passionné par son métier! La piscine est tout simplement magnifique. L’endroit est digne d’un hôtel 5 étoiles. Merci à toute l'équipe!

  • Successful stay

    Posted by Jean-Charles on 25/07/2020
