Les Banquets, 2 bedrooms + pool

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 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.

Comfortable accommodations in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples traveling together, and we were very comfortable here. We enjoyed the proximity to several small towns (and their markets). We were glad to know from a previous review that there is NO OVEN, so that we could plan our cooking accordingly, but this was really not a problem for us. The owners live on the premises, but were not in any way "invasive", instead were helpful and informative when needed.

a little paradise in the Vaucluse!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a relaxing holiday with our 2 young daughters. We will remember the discrete but warm hospitality of the owners. Our kids were very fond of the spacious garden but most of all they found new playmates in Harissa, the dog and Jaffa and Jones, the 2 cats!

superb break

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this area a number of times, and this was the best location yet. the photographs don't do it enough credit, the property was very spacious, and extremely well equipped. The terrace was lovely, with a large area of shade for the non sun lovers. Kate and Lane were the ideal hosts, available if necessary (though we never needed to ask them for anything) but otherwise letting us get on with enjoying the sun, swimming pool and garden, which we virtually had to ourselves, as they were out at work most of the time. Harissa (the dog, I never got round to asking what breed) was lovely, and the cats were hardly ever seen.

Location is superb, very quiet, but close enough to walk into Vaugines, and a short drive to our favourite villages of Cucuron, Lourmarin and Ansouis. We've already checked out when we can book for a return visit.

many thanks to Kate and Lane from David and Susan

Wonderful views and garden

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 10 peaceful days at Les Banquets. The weather was glorious and there is a lot to see and do in the area visiting chateaus, gardens, hilltop villages and local markets. The Gite is comfortable but the big minus point for us was NO oven. We like to cook and even warming bread and croissants doesn't work in a microwave. This forced us to eat out a lot of the time. Our hosts Kate and Lane were very helpful and provided lots of useful information about the area. Both Lourmarin and Cucuron (each about a 5 - 10 minute drive) have good restaurants, boutiques and wonderful markets.

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.
