House in Roussillon for 8 people with Air Conditioning and Heated Swimming Pool

La Bergerie Provençale is set amidst the villages, vineyards, and orchards of Provence’s renowned Luberon national park.

Originally a 200 year old stone ‘Bergerie’ or shepherds house, the property has been extended and renovated to create a stunning and luxury villa within one hectare of gated private gardens with a very large 6x12 meter heated swimming pool.

Approached along a tree-lined drive, the house is situated in the beautiful countryside of the Luberon and is surrounded on all sides by vineyards, farmland and woodland with beautiful uninterrupted views of the village of Roussillon, one of France’s acclaimed ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’.

Located in the very heart of the Luberon valley, the house is within easy driving distance of the areas most famous hilltop ‘perched’ villages, markets and restaurants including Gordes, Menerbes, Lacoste, Bonnieux with the local village of Roussillon only 3 minutes drive away.

The House has been designed to be a very comfortable and stylish home away from home. When you arrive you will be greeted by our English, French and German speaking house manager who will introduce to the house and its facilities.

There are four large double bedrooms opening out onto the shaded terrace overlooking the pool. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with baths and separate showers. The third and fourth bedrooms share a third separate bathroom equipped with bath and shower.

All bedrooms are fitted with Air Conditioning for your comfort.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, American fridge freezer, oven and microwave. A spacious separate utility room comes equipped with washing machine and drying area.

The house is naturally cool in summer and has under-floor heating and a large open fireplace in the living room for the cooler months.

The lounge has a large LCD television and DVD player with a wide range of satellite channels including all of the UK freeview channels including the childrens channels. Guests are welcome to use the iPod compatible sound dock and wireless broadband internet access.

Linen, towels and pool towels are included together with a cleaning service on departure.

Outside the gardens extend to one hectare containing a mixture of lawns, oak woodland and orchard. The heated south facing 6x12m swimming pool is reached by winding stone paths and is surrounded by a grassed area for sunbathing. The pool is accessed by security gate and is fitted with the latest automatic cover to ensure the safety of your family.

Sun loungers are provided as well as a lavish 3x3 metre outside L-shaped sofa for relaxing by the pool.

Beautiful house, perfect environment/ location

  • 5 of 5
This was a very special trip for us -- a long time in the making -- and it was everything we had hoped for. The home-owners, Neil and Melanie, were responsive all along to my various inquiries, and could not have been nicer. The house and entire area were everything we had hoped for: beautiful, tasteful, spacious yet intimate, secluded, calm, serene -- yet close to some active towns when we wanted that -- and the most beautiful/ famous towns and villages of the Luberon. Close enough to walk, in fact. My husband and I are early-risers, and our favorite part of the day was our morning walk up to Rousillon for breakfast at Chez Nino, where we became, and were treated like "regulars." (Also made good friends with the adorable butcher, the charming fish monger at Casino, and others). The property manager, Christian, was friendly and helpful in so many ways, when we needed him. All support services (gardening, cleaning) were attended to sensitively. All of our guests enjoyed themselves immensely. Was often hard to decide -- go out for some fabulous "site-seeing," or just lounge by the pool, listening to the birds, the breeze, and the cicadas. We will definitely return -- someday soon, I hope.

Thank you for sharing this jewel with us.

Peaceful quiet location close to Roussillon. Spacious 4 bed villa in very attractive settings. Sky TV wi fi and good mobile phone signal. Large heated pool and summer house. Very well equipped throughout. Ample flat parking for many cars. The owners are always very communicative. There is a Helpful service manager who is always on call.Although not cheap, La Bergerie represents excellent value for money. Review based on two visits. Highly recommended without any reservations whatsoever. Take a good book and chill out in perfect tranquility.

The perfect villa in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5
We took our two children (4 and 2) and my parents with us to this villa and it really did cater for everyone. The villa is beautifully renovated and maintained and is situated right in the heart of the hill top villages of the Luberon - within very easy reach of Gordes and Rousillon - all of which we had a fantastic time exploring. There really was too much to fit into just one week.

The house is laid out mainly on the the ground floor so it is ideal for families with young children and the heated pool and the children's toys provided makes it perfect for parents to have a really laid back holiday. That said the decor of the villa is finished to a very high standard and feels very grown up and luxurious - so those without children I am sure would have and even more relaxing holiday!!

The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, the bathrooms are a high quality and the open plan living space really works for a larger group of people. The gardens and the woods beyond are great for exploring and I particularly loved having breakfast on the sun dappled terrace just outside the dining room each morning - but I have to say my favourite place of all was the shady hammock.

We had a fantastic holiday - our first visit to the region - and we will definitely be back!

A most beautiful house, grounds and pool .

  • 5 of 5
It was the perfect holiday for us - our party consisted of four adults and two young children. This delightful property set on the edge of a hamlet was easy to find from the instructions. The listing description was completely accurate. It is very well equipped and furnished and was very clean and well maintained - it could only have been recently renovated all in the traditional French style. The manager was extremely helpful and was there to greet us and was available at any time should we have a query and was happy to make recommendations of places to visit etc.. The pool was always clean and warm - we were able to use it even in the middle of May. This property is only a few minutes drive from the delightful village of Roussillon and all that has to offer and easy access to the Louberon. We would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and certainly plan to return ourselves.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
What can we say about La Bergerie, it was exactly what we were looking for in a holiday rental. The house is furnished with everything one needs whilst on a self-catering holiday. It was very clean, modern and well looked after. The house manager greeted us and provided information on local markets, restaurants, etc. The then checked on the us mid-week just to see how we were getting on, which was a nice treat. The grounds and pool area are stunning and the special advantage is the rural location. We never heard any noise from the other properties. The surrounding area is beautiful and the house is close proximity to many villages and vineyards. Highly recommend this property if you want a place to ‘switch off’ from the madness of normal life!

Roussillon Village

Roussillon is located in the heart of the Luberon’s 'Golden Triangle' formed by the medieval hilltop villages of Gordes, Bonnieux, Lourmarin, Lacoste, Menerbes (featured in Peter Mayle's 'Year in Provence') and Oppede-le-Vieux, all of which are within 10-20 minutes drive.

The medieval village hides a picturesque maze of streets and squares, full of charming restaurants and art galleries. If you walk to the top of the village you will see wonderful panoramic views across the valley to the Grand Luberon, the slopes of Mont Ventoux, and the plateau of the Vaucluse.

The Luberon is considered to be the heart of Provence and the house is a perfect base to explore Avignon, Aix en provence, Orange and Arles all within an hours drive. The closest beach is located an hour's away at Cassis which has a fine sandy beach just outside the port, the Plage de la Grande mer. The French Riviera is two hours away.

It is a one hour drive to the international airports at Marseille and Nimes. The high speed TGV train service stops at Avignon is also one hour from the house.
