Ansouis House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Ansouis is rated one of the Plus Beaux /Most Beautiful Villages in France. Known by visitors for its historic chateau, and by locals for its exquisite restaurant, La Closerie, it has retained a truly authentic quality. The village itself will look after your daily needs with its bakery, café, post office, newspaper shop, and a small but well-equipped grocery market. On Sunday, a lively open air market comes to town, with the aroma of roasted chickens, cured meats, local cheeses, fruit, olives and delicious wines. The same market can be found at other local villages throughout the week.
The local area offers something for everyone; notable wineries, serious hikes or gentle promenades, biking tours (rentals are available in nearby Pertuis), ice cream heaven at L’Art Glacier, or a swim in our nearby fresh water lake, Etang de la Bonde. The historic villages of Loumarin, Cucuron, and Vaugines are minutes away.
Situated at the base of the Golden Triangle of the Luberon, the region offers many popular festivals throughout the year, photography in Arles, music and dance in Aix en Provence, and theatre in Avignon to name but three. It is less than 25 min to Aix en Provence, 45 minutes to the sprawling antique market at Isle sur la Sorgue, an hour to Cassis, Marseille, Avignon, and Arles. Take a ‘French’ picnic to the beach at Sanary Sur Mer or take a boat trip to swim in the hidden coves of the Calanques, or explore the wild beauty of the Camargue on horseback.
Easy access by train (Aix en Provence TGV 25 minutes by car from the house and 2.5 hours from Paris), airport (Marseilles, 40 minutes by car) and other cosmopolitan centers (Nice 3 hours, Avignon 45 minutes by car).
This authentic village house dating back to the 16th Century offers the perfect base for your stay in the region. Its southern aspect, and all the rooms, look over a gentle valley where each season brings new colors and sights, as the farmers nurture the land and their livelihood.

Everything is new, from bed linens, to appliances, although much of the furniture is antique.
