This is paradise

We stayed here 7 years ago and loved it, nothing has changed it's as beautiful as ever. This is the real Provence, not so much a tourist destination but a private home that Victorine shares with others. Except you have your own private apartment with outdoor eating. The area around this magnificent home is exquisite. The Luberon mountains loom up in front of you with the grapevines sprawled out seductively below. They are calling you.....come taste our wine and it's good. The local food is wonderful and there's plenty to explore. There's the semi deserted hilltop stone village called Oppede Le Vieux which is worth the climb! As well as the other hilltop towns of Menerbes, Bonnieux, Gordes, Rousillon.......etc. etc. Plan to stay more than a few days, you'll be sorry if you don't! So much to see, the fresh foodmarkets are wonderful, the antique market at Isle sur Le Sorgue on a Sunday is a must. And the light show in the caves at Le Baux de Provence is beyond exceptional. Astonishing!!! A car is necessary to get around but it's easy driving around the area. Pickup and drop off at Avignon TGV. Victorine is a wonderful host, we absolutely loved our stay here again. Next time it will be longer, much longer and when it's hot so we can swim in the beautiful pool overlooking the mountains! A tennis court is available, in short you have everything here for a magical holiday.

The Real Provence

The estate has a number of beautiful character properties in the grounds, or linked to the main house. They are beautiful, classic Luberon. Wonderful views in a tranquil setting, with a well situated pool, and extremely well appointed tennis court. I would thoroughly recommend a stay for anyone, families or couples, looking for a delightful and genuine holiday in Provence.

Tranquil elegance in a gorgeous setting

On a classic country estate set in the most gorgeous part of the Luberon, looking out over the hills and the evocative ruins of Oppede Le Vieux. There are several houses available, we stayed in the former mill, Le Moulin, which is a lovely romantic and very private two story round building, complete with a small kitchen, eating and sitting area and serene terrace overlooking the mountains and vineyards. Your hostess Victorine is extremely gracious and elegant, and very helpful with recommendations for restaurants,etc. The ruins of the unbelievably picturesque abandoned hill fortress of Oppede are a short walk away, and there are ancient paths throughout the surrounding countryside to explore. There is also a tennis court and lovely pool. The place is lovely, tranquil and perfectly located for exploring the Luberon.

A haven of tranquility

We really fell for this timeless place where peace and tranquility are synonymous with charm and beauty. We took our breakfast under the shade of a 100-year-old oak tree, what happiness! Breathtaking landscapes, and calm to relax the body and mind! Our week was unforgettable and we will certainly return soon. A big thank you to Mrs Canac for her kindness and availability. Each house is decorated with great taste and sobriety and offers comfort and obvious charm. With a little luck, you too will be visited by a squirrel in the pool... You'll understand that this is a place to discover!
