Villa la Belle du Luberon

Elegant luxury villa located in the heart of le Luberon.
5 air-conditioned bedrooms - 5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 10 guests


Description

VILLA LA BELLE DU LUBERON  is an outstanding property for a family or adult group of couples who want a supremely comfortable vacation with all the conveniences that modernity brings, yet in a genuinely Provençal environment with complete calm and glorious views of the countryside.

The property is constructed in classic Provençal style, with thick stone walls, rust-red terra cotta tile roof and a southern orientation to take advantage of long days of sunlight. With its south-facing terrace overlooking an infinity-view swimming pool, newly landscaped grounds and five spacious en-suite bedrooms, all of them air-conditioned, the villa is the ideal headquarters for a group of couples who desire a residence of great comfort and character from which to explore Provençe and its many culinary and historic treasures. Situated on a one-hectare (2.5-acre) slightly elevated terrain in a small hamlet of farmhouses near Gordes, the property has a quiet countryside ambience and is completely untroubled by traffic noise. A long row of olive trees stretches across the property. From the terrace and most rooms views stretch over the Luberon Valley to the horizon. This luxury villa was decorated by a professional interior designer and has been furnished to the highest standards. Neutral, cool colors contrast with natural wood tones. The house is filled with light.
One of the villa most delightful features is its spacious terrace, which overlooks the swimming pool and its long stone table offers the perfect setting for evening cocktails followed by dinner under the stars. French doors open from the dining area and living room onto the terrace, from which stone stairs descend to the garden and a stone deck surrounding the pool.

Location

Even with its bucolic setting, there is a wide variety of quality restaurants and food shops within a 10-minute drive of the property. Some of the most beautiful villages of Provence are within easy reach of the villa, including Gordes, Ménerbes, Lacoste, Goult, Bonnieux, and Roussillon. The closest villages, Beaumettes and Coustellet, are less than five minutes away, with a variety of shops and services. Aix-en-Provence is to the south, and the Côtes-du-Rhône wine-producing villages are to the north. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, famous for its antiques dealers and open-air market, is a 20-minute drive. 

Closest Transportation

The nearest train station is Avignon TGV, a 40 minute drive.   Avignon airport (flights from Leeds and Southampton) is a 30 minute drive and Provence Marseille airport is 1 hour.

Living Area

Ground Floor:

Top-quality appliances, generous counter space and excellent lighting are all features of the well-equipped kitchen at Villa la Belle du Luberon. A dishwasher, American full size side-by-side stainless-steel refrigerator with icemaker and a six-burner (four gas and two electric) Lacanche stove with dual ovens, accompanied by a variety of countertop appliances, provide everything the professional or amateur cook will need for simple family meals or serious entertaining. A butcher-block table provides additional workspace. Off the kitchen is a utility room with an American full size washing machine and separate tumble dryer.

The spacious living room, with its earth tones offset by occasional bursts of bright color, sets the decorative theme that pervades all rooms of the 300 m2 (3,330 sq. ft.) house. Two long oatmeal-color sofas and several leather armchairs are arranged in front of a huge fireplace framed by a limestone mantel. A huge 18th-century walnut armoire reaches all the way to the ceiling, accommodating satellite TVs and CD Stereo. The recessed overhead lights can be adjusted from bright to a soft glow.

The master bedroom, which opens off the living room, is one of two bedrooms on the ground floor. Dominating the space is a massive king-sized bed in a wood frame well elevated from the floor. Near the limestone fireplace is a sitting area with two plush club chairs. The elegantly finished master bath has a tub and separate all-glass stall shower.

The ground-floor guest bedroom has twin beds and a bath with glass stall shower. This room, no less charmingly decorated than the others, is slightly smaller than the other guest bedrooms, and does not have a long-range view.

Upper level:
Opening from a wide landing at the top of the stairs are three guest bedrooms, all with fine views of the countryside and beds mounted in high wooden frames. The first bedroom has a king-sized bed and a bath with tub and separate glass stall shower. The second bedroom has twin beds with lovely toile de jouy headboards and a bath with a tub and hand-held shower. The third bedroom has a queen sized bed and a bath with a glass stall shower. Like the downstairs bedrooms, these rooms have a fresh, airy feel that goes with the overall ambiance of cheer and buoyancy that characterizes the property.

There is a second, more casual sitting area on this level, with satellite TV and a stereo with CD player.

Please note VILLA LA BELLE DU LUBERON is a non smoking property.

Other Amenities

Air conditioning in all bedrooms, Satellite television with English channels and DVD player, radio and CD /MP3 player. Telephone and internet (wi-fi). Baby crib.

Outdoor Living

One of the villa most delightful features is its spacious terrace, which overlooks the swimming pool and its long stone table offers the perfect setting for evening cocktails followed by dinner under the stars. French doors open from the dining area and living room onto the terrace, from which stone stairs descend to the garden and a stone deck surrounding the pool.

Private swimming pool: 5 m X 10  (16.5′ X 33′). The pool furniture includes several lounge chairs, and for shade there are two parasols as well as a covered area off the pool deck.

Please note  the beautiful infinity pool has no shallow end (the entire pool is 5′ deep), and is therefore a potential hazard for small children or for adults who cannot swim. Young children must be supervised at all times, and are required to wear life-jackets, which are provided by the owner.
