My husband and I have been visiting the Provence and particularly the Luberon area for over 15 years. In 2004, we were fortunate to be able to purchase the beautiful home of our dear friends in Ansouis who were preparing to retire to Paris! We are in love with Provence, in love with Ansouis and in love with our home. In more than 15 years we have yet to exhaust all the beauties and riches of the area. We enjoy sharing our home with those who are discovering the Provence for the first time or returning again to this magical spot. Many of those who rent our home return again!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

From early spring through late autumn, we enjoy living outside on our terrace with views over the beautiful Provencal countryside. We breakfast in the early morning sunshine, lunch in the cool covered terrace area next to the pool and enjoy dinner in the pool house overlooking the valley while watching the sun set.

We love the convenience of being situated in the lovely village of Ansouis within a short walk to the bakery, local tabac (newspaper & magazine store)and a first class restaurant while enjoying the complete privacy and 'tucked away' feeling of our home perched over the valley.

It is indeed a piece of paradise for us.

A special home overlooking the countryside of Ansouis

  • 5 of 5
We were not disappointed. The home provides a wonderful terrace. Given that we had good weather, most of our late afternoons and evenings were spent there to watch the sun go down, listen to the birds, and just reflect.
The kitchen is well supplied for cooking. The other living areas are wonderful. Accomodating and well appointed. We used the main dining/ living area as our breakfast spot and drop-off area for our maps, shoes, etc. and spent many an evening upstairs in the library for perfect peace and quiet.

The bedroom we used was comfortable. It was wonderful to wake up to the rooster down the road! Bathrooms were nicely appointed and large in terms of European standards.
Appreciated the bath off the pool as it was handy prior to departure to surrounding villages each day.
The village has little in it but it was enough for us. An excellent Tabac with the daily International Tribune; a patisserie that has wonderful pastries; a lovely church, a Vival grocery that has staples so one needn't go further; and an excellent restaurant. "La Closerie", where we had two memorable meals overlooking the Luberon landscape.

Parking is of course not at your door. We chose to park in a public lot that had easy stairs coming up to the village. We did huff and puff a bit, but soon were used to the necessary "going up" to the village.
If you enjoy quiet and a place to unwind, this is a little bit of heaven. For those who must stay connected, there is Wi-Fi.
The owners were very clear about all information one needed to know and were most helpful with other questions prior to our departure.
A gem!

Charming Escape in Provence

  • 5 of 5
We spent an idyllic week at La Maison des Arches. It looks so great in the photos, and it is even better "in person". Our first reaction when coming through the gate and seeing the expansive and charming view and pool was Wow! upon entering the house we just couldn't believe we would be staying in such a beautiful home during our Provence vacation. Each day when we came back from touring we were so excited to spend the evening at home. We picnicked on the terrace on quite a few evenings enjoying the sunset and a meal assembled from our daily market visits. The kitchen is so well equipped it's quite easy to enjoy meals at home. And after a busy day, it can be so nice just to relax at home.

The house is so comfortable and spacious. Each bedroom has its own personality. One of our favorite rooms was the library. We had a couple chilly nights during our stay so we enjoyed wine in the cozy library. I also have to say how nice it was to have a really great Internet connection. We actually streamed some of our favorite shows on our iPad for our evening entertainment!

The location in the perched village of Ansouis is perfect; everything is within an hour's drive. The town of Ansouis has a lovely patisserie, boulangerie and a terrific restaurant, La Closerie, which is a must visit at least once during your stay. Also, you should take advantage of the great information packet provided by the owners; they recommend restaurants, markets, wineries....a great resource for your stay.

The caretakers were so welcoming and helpful during our stay and the owners have created a very welcoming environment and provide tons of helpful information, guidebooks, etc. about the region.

We can't wait to return with friends in 2014!

Beautiful, Private home with an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Our family of 5 just returned from our European vacation and the highlight was our one week spent here in Ansouis. Everything about this rental - from the owners, caretakers, location, neighbours, furnishings, pool, amenities, etc. was perfect! If you are first time travelers to Provence and are having a hard time deciding where to stay choose this home! We were looking for something quiet, private, with a view but close enough to walk to the patisserie every morning - we chose the perfect place. We had many fabulous day trips from Ansouis and also spent many hot hours lounging and swimming. We can't wait to go back one day!

Spectacular Privacy

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples at the house for a week, which was delightful.
We cooked a great deal in the kitchen which was really well stocked and had several dinner parties on the gorgeous terrace.
We loved being within walking distance of our favourite restaurant in the Luberon and enjoying walking around the village.
All our contact with the manager and the owners was excellent and they responded and noted anything that was needed, which was in fact very little.
As a quick summary: great to have good wifi which was important to us. Outside bathroom was a fab idea. House, pool, kitchen ware were very clean. Lots of towels coat hangers, pillows.
We spent a great deal of time at the house, as we had explored the area very well on previous occasions, and found it comfortable, amenable and just a pleasure to hang out in.

Magnificent

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible place! I felt as though we walked through a time machine when entering the gates of Les Arches. The property was percfect in every way. Lovely furnishings, fantastic views, and absolutely immaculate. The owners could not have been more helpful with their suggestions. We visited many hilltop villiages, Roman ruins, and wonderful vineyards. The local produce was unbelievable. I can't wait to return to Ansouis. I highly recommend this as a vaction of a lifetime!
