COUNTRY HOME- TOTAL RENO 2012. NEAR GORDES. POOL & OLIVE GROVE

Oppede House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Oaks and Olives is a lovely family home in beautiful, undisturbed surroundings, yet within easy reach of the local villages of Oppede le Vieux, Coustellet and Menerbes.

Our family home away from home consists of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom, with king bed, has a large ensuite with walk-in shower and footed tub. This bedroom/ bathroom is suitable for handicapped access. French doors open onto it's own small terrace.

The second large bedroom also has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower.

There are two more bedrooms that share the third bathroom. One has a queen bed and the other has two twins that can be pushed together or left separate.

The great room is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine, read a book or enjoy the views across the valley. The dining room can be set for eight people to enjoy the special treats that come out of the fully stocked kitchen. The openness of the room allows beautiful morning light lasting right into sunset views. Off this great room is another set of French doors which leads out to the covered terrace. Beyond the terrace lies the covered outdoor dining area with BBQ, security-gated pool and garden with olives trees, lavender, wild thyme, and rosemary.

Coustellet is 10 minutes away. It has the regions most successful market on Sundays and the best bakery around (right behind the supermarket). Not to be missed is the new pastry and tea shop that rivals some of the best in Paris. The town has everything required from a pharmacy (with a pharmacist that speaks English) and groceries to the lavender museum.

We are ideally situated in the middle of the Luberon with easy access to all of the fabulous hillside villages; for example, Gordes, Rousillon, Bonnieux and Lourmarin. There are endless opportunities to try new wines and local delicacies, while experiencing the daily wonders of Provence.

Whether you choose to spend your days relaxing in the sun or filling every moment with typical French experiences and markets, we know you will thoroughly enjoy your stay.

About The Owner

Karl and Moira are a forever France-loving couple. They traveled to the area many times before realizing their dream of buying a home there for their family to enjoy together and escape the chaos of Vancouver life. Karl is an architect of custom homes and therefore couldn't wait to get his hands on this personal project.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Oppede

The Luberon has long held a fascination due to the cherries in the Spring, lavender in the Summer, and olive crush in the Fall. Between the hillside villages, fabulous markets, and wonderful wines, there is an endless assortment of things to enjoy in this area.

What makes this house unique

Oaks and Olives radiates the feel of provencal country living, while it's design considers the wants and needs of North American lifestyle. The floor plan is thoughtfully laid out giving the house a very luxurious feel.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
I can't praise this property and experience enough. Everything is really wonderful; a well equipped kitchen, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, inviting outdoor spaces and spectacular views. We quickly settled in to a routine of sightseeing all day, stopping at a market or the grocery store and then grilling and eating dinner in the outdoor dining room. It was so easy to cook in the kitchen that we cooked every night except for one! (We do love to cook - but there are plenty of terrific restaurants nearby). I totally fell in love with Oppede le vieux, and we returned there several times to explore. The pool and outdoor shower were great and it was nice to have the air conditioning on a few very hot days. (Although the house cooled down very quickly in the evening). The location is perfect, right in the middle of so many beautiful villages - we could have explored forever. But, alas, we had to return home. We hope to return to this bit of heaven on earth again soon.

We had a terrific family gathering here.

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful week at Oaks and Olives (Aug 2-9, 2014), celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary. We were eight in number, which included three generations. The house and grounds were perfect for our needs and interests. This is a very attractive, beautifully designed, well-functioning home. It provides a quiet place for relaxing, with ample space for communing, being alone, enjoying the lovely pool, or walking on the peaceful country road. Our family enjoys group cooking and found the kitchen and adjoining eating space very well suited for this. Access to fresh herbs was a bonus, as was the outside dining area (with grill), which we enjoyed on a number of evenings (complete with glowing moonlight in our case). The property is well located for exploring the Luberon and other regions of Provence. The owners provided excellent support during the planning stage and with an excellent house-manual. Moira was the point person here for us, and we are grateful for her very kind help.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5
This house is superbly located, tastefully furnished and designed to connect you to the exterior surrounding so you experience the morning sun and the evening sunset. It has the feel of a traditional country house, but with modern amenities. The surrounding area is quintessential Provence. We enjoyed the house and the area thoroughly and only wondered why the owners were not there full time! The house clearly reflects their care and love of the region.

Fantastic house in Oppede!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Moira and Karl's house in September of 2013 for a week. This house is fantastic! There is a spacious open floor plan with a lovely, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and cozy living room area for reading, relaxing or entertaining. The master bedroom is large, has a real king size bed and has a great bathroom. It is conveniently in a wing away from other bedrooms. There is another queen bedroom and 2 other bedrooms in a little wing of their own. The grounds are lovely with olive trees, flowers, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a covered terrace and a pool that is perfect for cooling off after a day visiting nearby towns and markets. Moira has left a book at the house filled with recommendations for markets, towns and restaurants to visit. We were easily able to go to Bonnieux, Menerbes, Roussillon and Gordes--and Avignon, St. Remy and Aix-en-Provence and the coast are all within driving distance. There are fabulous restaurants in several of the towns and a wonderful little bistro the next town over. You have the feeling of being out and away in your own calm and quiet country house but you are so close to many sight seeing attractions and places to visit. We recommend the house highly!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I spent a week here and I couldn't imagine a more convenient location from which to explore the villages of the Luberon. It also allows day trips to Mont Ventoux, Orange and Pont du Gard.

Brilliant Holiday House

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to the Luberon area and hopefully won't be our last.

In choosing a place to stay we had initially focused on traditional stone houses and we were a little reserved about choosing a more modern building.
Any concerns we may have harbored quickly disappeared in the first five minutes of arriving.

I am not sure what you started with prior to the renovation but the end result is a triumph. We really enjoyed the understated elegance of the interior design. The orientation of the rooms is very well thought out and right through our stay we were impressed at just how brilliantly the spaces work.

You clearly managed to find the right calibre of tradesman to do the work as I could see many touches throughout the property that indicate that the focus was on quality not cost.

We have rented many houses in the past in rural areas in France but this is the first one that has offered such convenience in terms of proximity to shops, restaurants and places of interest to visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks Charles, working on the house was a wonderful experience. Sometimes trying something new can work out well! I am so glad your family had a great holiday.
