Situated in Provence in the heart of the Luberon within the Luberon Regional Park near Lourmarin and Lauris, the villa sleeps six to eight. 'Brume de L’Aube' ('Dawn Haze'), a large bright, relaxing villa is located near some of the most beautiful villages and scenery in France. Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Menerbes and Lacoste (popularised by Peter Mayle) are all within 5-20mins drive, with easy access to the rest of Provence.
Set in half acre of terraced garden with olive trees and lavender, the villa's sun terrace offers stunning views over the Durance valley and Cezanne's Montagne Saint Victoire in the distance. The location is secluded, tranquil and private, looking out over the vineyards and countryside from it's hillside location, yet it is a 10 min walk to the centre of Lauris with it's Monday market, four restaurants, three bakeries, small supermarket and old village dating from the 15th C, including a dozen or so artists workshops and galleries.
The villa is spacious (1700 square feet or 150 m2) and has three double bedrooms plus a double sofabed, with three bathrooms (two en-suite), a large beamed and vaulted sitting room (500 square feet or 45 m2), cool in summer with luxury cream leather suite for eight, and a separate large dining room (250 square feet or 20m2) seating eight. Terraces, open, covered, and shaded surround the villa permitting relaxation and dining out of doors in all weathers. Pool (ten meters by five meters).

SUNSHINE: Designed and positioned to fully exploit the climate and sunshine of Provence the villa faces south-south-east and enjoys sublime views over the surrounding valleys at sunrise with Cezanne’s Mont St. Victoire dominant in the distance. In the master bedroom suite on the first floor (en-suite bathroom and toilet) the sun literally pours straight through the large window - a wonderful way to wake up every morning or even brush your teeth.
The villa has a large sun terrace directly in front of the sitting room. Yet, when the sun is so hot that you only want to escape it, then the coolness of the vaulted sitting room offers respite, whilst a further terrace provides the option of lunch or dinner under shaded trees during hot summer days. The swimming pool, however, is positioned so that it enjoys the sun until early evening.
