Nestled in the foothills of the Petit Luberon, this large and luxurious 5 bedroom/ 5.5 bath Villa was built by a local architect 8 years ago, in a modern style and using local white stones. Overlooking the vineyards, Mont Ventoux and the villages of Roussillon and Joucas, A Laise en Provençe is truly in the heart of the Luberon.
The main house offers a large formal living room and a dining room for 12, as well as a smaller TV room with satellite dish. The kitchen, decorated in the Provençal fashion, is the heart of the house. Equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a large pantry, and all the necessary cookware, from family heirlooms to modern pots and pans, it is truly fit for the gourmet cook.
Our American guests will feel at ease thanks to the imported measurement tools, cookbooks, washer/dryer and ice-water dispenser fridge... You may choose to have breakfast on the back patio, have a quick lunch in the cool of the kitchen, enjoy an evening drink in the outside living room and dine outside on the large teak table by the BBQ, looking out to the pool.
With AC in all the bedrooms, very comfortable beds, lots of towels and all paper and cleaning supplies, kitchen staples, hairdryers, high-speed internet access, Satellite TV with CNN and other English-speaking (as well as German, Spanish, Italian...) channels, a separate clothes dryer, a BBQ grill, a heated pool suitable for laps, a pétanque game area, a huge and very private garden with panoramic views of the Apt valley, A Laise en Provençe is a vacation dream come true.
You may decide to spend an active day, discovering one of the numerous villages perching on the hills, visiting the splendid Abbaye of Sénanque in its nest of lavender, shopping at the local markets or at the nearby farm for the bountiful produce of the region, or you may decide to do nothing and stay at the house all day, resting in the shade, listening to the humming "Cigales", or going for a walk in the adjacent forest and cooling off in the pool.
The pool is heated, and once you have enjoyed a midnight bath in the starry night, watching the twinkling lights in the valley as you swim, you will truly feel in paradise.
