Villa Rose is a vacation villa with pool and gardens on a private country club estate. Just 3 mins stroll to shops, bars & restaurants in the picturesque old village square which overlooks the boating lake, golf course and hills of Provence. Accommodation: One double ensuite bedroom and one twin bedroom, two luxury bathrooms. Modern kitchen with dishwasher & washer/drier. Large beamed lounge and dining area open onto a balcony overlooking the Luberon mountains. Further terrace with outdoor furniture and BBQ leads to gardens and shared private pool only 30 yds away.
Golf course information: The spectacular golf course was designed and opened by Seve Ballesteros in 1991. It is now fully matured and has held the French Masters tournament for the last few years in October. In 2007, for the first time this was televised in France. Regarded as one of the top 10 courses in France it is not for the faint hearted, but the variety of tees make it a fun challenge for players of moderate ability and better. Very well maintained, it has a good practice ground, putting green and modern Provencal clubhouse. There is a good, well stocked bar with snacks and light meals available all day, also an excellent restaurant with views across the lake and golf course from the terrace, all open to non-members. In 2010 a short 6 hole golf course was opened for practice and beginners.
