Les Banquets, 2 bedrooms + pool

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Assured comfort, extraordinary nature

Les Banquets is a well appointed two bedroomed stone self-catered cottage - or gite - with its own entrance & parking.

Situated on a quiet country road between Vaugines and Lourmarin, this secluded property in the foothills of the Luberon enjoys spectacular views of the Sainte Victoire and direct access to the incomparable natural beauty of the Southern Vaucluse.

Les Banquets is ideally suited to one or two couples, and small families (we welcome children over 8) looking to relax, unwind and savour the gentle Provençal way of life.

The cottage adjoins the owner's house, though the owners tend to work long hours, so you will be left in peace to enjoy and explore.

For those in search of activity there are plenty of possibilities for gentle walks in the foothills, more serious hikes up the Mourre Nègre and other mountains in the region, trail style running or mountain biking along the crests of the Luberon range.

For motorcyclists it is a paradise of great rides on the well-maintained and sinuous hillside roads and passes.

Getting Here

The airports of Avignon or Marseille Provence are less than an hour away by car. The well-served Nice airport is an easy two hour drive.

Well situated for trains, the Aix-en-Provence TGV and Avignon TGV stations can be reached in under an hour.


The bright living space comprises a kitchen, dining room area and a comfortable sofa. The kitchen is equipped with gas hob, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, fridge, washing machine and the amenities you will need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Two bedrooms, both ensuite. The south facing bedroom has a double bed, chest of drawers and hanging space. French doors offer views of the garden and lead directly onto the sunny terrace.

The northern bedroom has two single beds, hanging and storage space, and provides glimpses of the garrigue.

Both bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms and separate loo's.

The living room opens onto your own south facing terrace with views across the surrounding farmland and the Sainte Victoire further south. The terrace is ideal for outdoor meals and is equipped with a table, chairs and a barbecue.The unfenced garden has plenty of space for running around as well as some quiet, cool areas to escape the sun. The garden is secluded and private; there are no neighbours and no roads nearby.

The swimming pool is a converted stone bassin (5x7). Hidden next to the pool is a hot/cold water shower. It is a low-chemical salt-water pool and ideal for those with sensitive skins.

The open summer kitchen next to the pool provides the perfect spot for an afternoon siesta with a double bed and hammock. It has proved a popular sleeping spot for older children!

Access to the garden, swimming pool and summer kitchen are unlimited.

A wonderful week of peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Les Banquets. Everything was perfect -- the location, the house, the garden, and the view ... The house is a true gem at the foot of the Luberon mountains with its unique and thoughtful design. Several picturesque Provencal villages are only about a 20-minute walk (Vaugines) or a short drive (e.g., Cucuron, Lourmarin, Cadenet) away. Most importantly, the owners of the gite were very warm, attentive, and welcoming and made sure that our stay was the best it could be. Thank you, Kate and Lane, we definitely hope to back sometime in the future!

Great quality accommodation in peaceful countryside

  • 5 of 5

You cannot ask for more! The accommodation is top quality with everything you need, be it barbecue or plastic containers for your picnic! You name it, it will be there. And not to even mention the stunning countryside and amazing views!

We had lovely time spent around the swimming pool, sunbathing on sun loungers, relaxing in the outdoor bed, having a barbecue on the terrace. The owners are very friendly but giving you enough space to enjoy the place on your own.

I would highly recommend as we will be back for sure! Everything looks exactly like the pictures so you will get what you see.

We shall return

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as it is presented. 5 mins from Lourmarin, very quiet. Lovely gardens and views. Quality bathrooms and towels etc. Kitchen pots and utensils pretty basic; if you like cooking, check what's available. Basic provisions: salt/pepper, milk, tea and coffee etc, plus bottle of bubbly. Very welcoming. Hosts very amenable, helpful and discreet. Highly recommended. (We were there mid-May: relatively quiet and service in cafés/markets etc very friendly. No problem getting to and from villages, parking etc. Must be hell in July/August).

Een verrassende vakantieplek

  • 4 of 5

Een prachtige lokatie, met voldoende privacy, daar de bewoners overdag weg zijn. Het huisje is van alles voorzien en heeft een goede sfeer met uitzicht op de wijde omgeving. Je mag gebruikmaken van de tuin en zwembad en goede ligstoelen. De gastvrijheid is alleraardigst.. Een aanrader voor iedereen die stilte zoekt en toch de charmante dorpen dichtbij in de omgeving wil vinden. Zelfs via wandelpaden te bereiken. Alle informatie wat betreft winkels, restaurants enz. is in het huis aanwezig.
