Menerbes House Rental Photos and Description
House - 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s) - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 2-3)
The Fountain View House is located in the heart of Provence, in the “perched” or hilltop village of Menerbes. This village, which Peter Mayle wrote about in “A Year in Provence,” is an exceptionally authentic village in the heart of the Luberon with its hills, vineyards, fruit trees and lavender fields.
The Fountain View House layout permits a couple, small family or group to enjoy renting a house in the heart of one of Provence’s most beautiful villages without having to take on a large 3-5 bedroom farm house which is so common in the area. Many families or two couples traveling together, however, choose to take the entire joined house so they may fully enjoy village life.
The Fountain View House is composed of two stories, ancient Provencal stone. Parts of the house date back at least 500 years if not more, but it has been lovingly renovated and modernized. One of the village’s ancient bee-hive shaped ovens is incorporated in the building, though it's not available for visits.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We enjoyed our stay in Menerbes at the Fountain View House very much. It was a pleasure to spend a week there and feel attached to the village. Everyone was very welcoming, and after visiting many of the villages in the area, we concluded that Menerbes was just about perfect. We also had the good fortune to have a week of perfect weather.
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to experience Menerbes.
