Overview

Luberon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'La Cigale' is a spacious, luxurious country house set in 7.5 hectares of beautiful, natural parkland within the Luberon Natural Park ideally situated within walking distance (1 km) of the village of Lacoste and its famous château dating back to the XI century.

The newly restored, expansive house set out on one level enjoys high-beamed ceilings, stone floors, and breathtaking views over the Luberon hills. On arrival, the automatic wrought iron gates open into natural parkland with stately mature trees and a long driveway to the front of the house.

The house is surrounded by a delightful, natural garden with south facing terrace, stone fountain, “borie”, “boule” court, and a peaceful, secluded pool, representing a haven of peace for those who wish to unwind, paint, read or go for long walks through the unspoilt countryside. Table and chairs on both the subtly lit terrace and by the “borie” provide perfect settings for relaxed evening meals.

The house has a delightful salon with a natural stone fireplace separating it from the elegant dining room. Both the salon and dining room are tastefully furnished in a mixture of Provencal and regency styles, and with original artworks adorning the walls. The entertainment system offers British television, DVD and CD. The dining room leads through to the library, with a selection of books, to a wrought iron spiral staircase that leads up to a delightful mezzanine that provides a quiet space for reading.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with Smeg appliances; including oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and refrigerator, and a Gaggia coffee maker. All work surfaces are in marble, including a centre island, and there is plenty of crockery, glassware and cutlery. A wrought iron table and chairs is ideal for breakfast use in the cooler months.

The three elegant bedrooms each have double beds, and all open onto the stone terrace. The master bedroom has extensive views over the Luberon hills, and has direct en suite access to the main bathroom of the house, offering antique roll top bath and twin washbasins. The second bedroom opens onto the garden, and has direct en suite access to a second bathroom boasting an in-ground Italian shower, whilst the third bedroom provides direct access to the beautiful pool. All bedrooms have Provencal style wardrobes and dressers, bedside tables and lamps.

A small study provides the facilities for work if needed, while the house is fully equipped with a wireless network and high speed internet access (for own laptop connection), as well as telephone and fax facilities. The house is perfectly located to explore the many attractions of this spectacular region, including other nearby hilltop villages within the Luberon Natural Park such as Gordes and Roussillon, and towns such as Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Arles, and St. Remy de Provence.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Beverly,



Thank you for letting us stay at La Cigale- we had the best time and now fondly remembering all of our visits to gorgeous towns and lazing by the pool in the afternoons.



We ended up going back to Isle Sur La Sorgue and having a fabulous time exploring the town, markets, and did a great canoe trip from Fountaine Des Vaucluse. We did a day trip (on the autobarn!) to a crazy crocodile farm, north of Avignon and then stayed in a lovely place just outside of Avignon. We spent a day exploring Avignon, shopping and beautiful lunch- the girls tried escargots for first time.



Once I get organised I will send some photos- we took so many.



Best wishes



Clare, Chloe and Fleur

Amazing stay at La Cigale!

  • 5 of 5

I changed my honeymoon itinerary just so I could stay at La Cigale... and it was so worth it! The house is stunning, with beautiful furnishings. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding areas, but the house itself is so gorgeous you might not want to leave! The garden is amazing with plenty of activities. It was a little too cool for us to swim, but the pool was clean and very tempting. I would definitely recommend La Cigale to couples wanting a romantic escape, or families looking for a perfect holiday home in Provence!

La Cigale exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three kids stayed here for the first week of July 2011. It was our first time in this part of the world and we were flyiing by the seat of our pants when we booked. Things couldn't have worked out better. Beverly's communication was fantastic and she made us feel great about the holiday. The home is so nice that we drove by it twice marveling at it nad not realizing that it was our rental! Lacoste turned out to be our favorite town ( followed closely by Bonnieux). Sadly the week ended way too quickly. Stay here: you won't regret it. As an aside we took the TGV down from Paris to Avignon where we had rented a car from Avis for the week. We then flew home from Marseilles which all turned out to be a great way to do things.

La Cigale Villa

  • 5 of 5

Dear Beverly,

We thoroughly enjoyed our days at the villa; it is a wonderful place.

The pride of ownership from the owners was evident as we found everything necessary to make this a great time and tried to leave it as we found it.

We loved Provence and the villa is a great location for seeing many of the surrounding villages and attractions. We had great meals with local produce from the many markets.

Thanks again for your hospitality and especially for making the process so simple.
