The Location

The historic village of Ansouis, topped by its 12th century castle.

Ansouis, 1 mile away, is officially one of 'The Most Beautiful Villages in France'. You can wander its narrow streets up to the beautifully preserved 12th century chateau, building up an appetite for lunch at the excellent La Closerie restaurant. Ansouis is a historic village characterised by the harmony of its architecture, a tranquil place where you can buy your baguette in the morning and stop for a coffee on the sidewalk.

Ansouis is surrounded by vineyards and stunning Provence countryside. It is close to other beautiful Luberon villages - Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Cucuron, Cadenet - 35 minutes from Aix en Provence and an hour to Marseille and Avignon.

A little paradise

We had an amazing stay at St Esteve. The place is like a little paradise on earth in the middle of Luberon. The cottage is clean, cosy and well equipped with everything you need to feel at home. The property has lovely gardens and a large heated swimming pool which can be used during any season. Alex, the owner of the vineyard and of the property was welcoming us and gave us useful tips on several activities and short trips we did during our stay. She is warm hearted and has a lovely personality. The three dogs, Neri, June and Tina became our companians for the 12 days we were there. Our daughter fell in love with them. We will truly miss everything at the chateau, but will definitely return one day.

We have twice before stayed in the village of Ansouis and loved it. This September we returned to Ansouis and, on the recommendation of friends, we stayed at Saint Esteve, only a 10 minute drive from the small town centre of Ansouis. We were greeted when we arrived by Alex, the proprietor who lives on the property.. We later met Helen who oversees the reservations and who also lives on the property. They were both gracious and welcoming and were a continued source of information on the surrounding area during our week there. The "cottage" is a two bedroom suite that includes a living room, kitchen, bathroom as well as the bedrooms. It is very nicely decorated. We felt comfortable as soon as we first entered the cottage. The property includes a large swimming pool which we were encouraged to use and did so, daily. Ansouis has a small town centre that includes a nice grocery store and a one-star Michelin restaurant, La Closerie, that is truly amazing. During the week toured some of the nearby towns on their market day. Lourmarin was our favourite.

Peaceful place

Very peaceful place, beautiful surrounding, great to start trips around. The apartment is large, comfortable, perfectly equipped. We did not miss anything. Just pity we could not use the swimming pool due the colder weather. And lovely dogs, cats and owners. Do not forget to taste local vine production.
