PAOLO'S VIEW: “Rustic hideaway for a romantic couple in a 'secret valley' near Menerbes”

The Location
The house is 1.5 miles from the village of Menerbes.

Menerbes rises up like a ship from the sea of vineyards that run along the Luberon valley and is officially one of 'The Most Beautiful Villages of France'. Menerbes has two levels. On the mid-level are restaurants, cafe, bakery and grocery store. And on the top level you can stroll past grand houses with magnificent views to north and south, as well as the Maison de la Truffe et du Vin (House of Wine and Truffles), where you can buy produce and also have lunch in the beautiful garden. Market day in Menerbes is Thursday mornings from April to October.

From Menerbes you can get to the other picture-perfect hill-top villages of the north Luberon within 15 minutes by car: Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste, Oppede-le-vieux and Goult. Within an hour are the must-sees of Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, St-Remy, Les Baux-de-Provence and Arles.

A Very Special Place

Rated 5 out of 5
15th July 2023

We loved our time at Le Refuge. Marie is a wonderfully accommodating and kind host, and has created a place to stay that is deeply relaxing and yet within close proximity to the many charming villages of the Luberon. We will fondly remember the beauty of the forest, the lovely gardens, the peaceful walks, and amazing views. Highly recommended!

We absolutely loved our stay here. The property is beautiful and very calming. The house provided us everything we needed and the outdoor spaces were perfect to hang out during the day and evenings. Marie is a wonderful host who will go above and beyond to make sure your stay is excellent. I highly recommend this stay for a couple looking to unplug in an absolutely gorgeous part of France.

Idyllic Setting Close to Menerbes

Rated 5 out of 5

My wife and I just returned from a five week stay at La Refuge. It is in a truly magical location with the kindest and sweetest host. Marie is a very welcoming and helpful person and a wonderful guardian to this idyllic property in the Luberon. You are so close to the beautiful village of Menerbes but it seems as if you are deep in a magical forest when you are at the house. The gardens and the property are lush and full of bird song. This was our 3rd stay here in the last five years and we will be returning next year. The location is perfect for exploring the area and you get to come back each day to a tranquil setting. Everybody in their life should be so lucky to stay at La Refuge and to meet and experience the warmth and loveliness that is Marie.
