Our 3-bedroom house is located on a hilltop on the border between the Vaucluse and Alpes de Haute Provence in the protected Parc du Luberon, along a popular cycling route and a five minutes drive from Golf du Luberon, the only 18-hole course within the park. It has a large swimming pool surrounded by terraced gardens below the house and commanding views of neighbouring farms and vineyards.
Situated in 30 acres of pine forest, groves of black truffle-producing oak trees, fields and vegetation of the Luberon, the house is private and tranquil. The perched village of Pierrevert lies 5 kilometres east of the property, andLa Bastide des Jourdans is the same distance to the west. It's a perfect place to chill or to use as a base to explore the wonderful region.
The balcony of the house offers spectacular star-gazing and views of distant Mont Sainte-Victoire, made familiar in the 19th and 20th century paintings of Cézanne, whose hometown of Aix-en-Provence is just 30 minutes away.
Pierrevert is our nearest village, a five-minute drive from the house. At the foot of the village is a grocery store open 7 days a week and a boulangerie.
The nearest substantial town is Manosque, birthplace of Provencal writer Jean Giono and gateway to the Gorge du Verdon. The villa is for rent year-round. It has central heating and all the amenities of home in the heart of Provence.
The Golf du Luberon is the parc's only 18-hole golf course, and we are only a few minutes drive from this stunning and challenging course. It has a restaurant with great views onto the 18th hole, and is open to the public.
