Villa La Contemporaine

Striking contemporary Provence villa located in the heart of le Luberon.
5 air-conditioned bedrooms - 5.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 10 guests


Villa La Contemporaine is a striking, contemporary Provence villa with bright, spacious living spaces and spectacular views of le Mount Ventoux and le Luberon scenery.

Nestled in the foothills of the Luberon, this large, beautiful villa overlooks the vineyards of Mont Ventoux and the villages of Roussillon and Joucas. Recently built by a local architect (10 years), the house uses traditional local white stone in a modern design. Wide open spaces on the main floor lead to several covered terraces and a beautiful “infinity” pool. While the villa is set in a peaceful setting, it is just a 5 minutes drive to the village of Goult and a 10 minutes drive to the village of Gordes offering a wide variety of restaurants, shops, art galleries, wineries and beautiful villages to visit nearby.

The main house has a spacious formal living room and a dining room that can accommodate twelve, as well as a TV room with satellite TV. The heart of the villa is the kitchen, decorated in typical Provencal style. Top-of-the-line appliances, a large pantry, plenty of cookware, and Provencal cookbooks make the kitchen fit for the gourmet cook.

5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms sleeps up to 10 guests– Three large air-conditioned bedrooms in the main house have their own en suite bathrooms and king-sized beds. They open onto terraces that enjoy gorgeous views of the countryside. Two smaller bedrooms are located in an annex and are perfect for teenagers or a nanny and young children. One has a queen-sized bed and the other has twin beds; both are air-conditioned, with en suite bathrooms. Baby furniture and futons for additional guests are available on request.

The beautiful pool is heated so you can enjoy a swim beneath the stars, watching the twinkling lights in the valley below. Enjoy breakfast on the back patio, a drink in the outdoor living room, or dinner on the large teak table by the BBQ, with a view of the pool.


Even with its bucolic setting, there is a wide variety of quality restaurants and food shops within a 5-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 village, Goult is five minutes away, with a variety of shops, a café and restaurants. 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 25-minute drive.
