Mérindol Villa Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms, 8.0 Bathrooms, 16 Sleeps

Nestled inside Luberon National Park in Provence, amongst the areas rolling hills, quaint villages and rich flora and fauna, is Val Bleu, one of the most charming holiday villas in France youre sure to find.

This traditional stone mas, or farmhouse, sits on a seven-acre property (3 ha) surrounded by landscaped gardens filled with fruit trees and fragrant herbs and lavender. Air conditioning throughout the villa will keep you cool, so will a swim in the 75-metre poolor perhaps youd rather spend the afternoon soaking in the sun in one of the chaises, or soothe sore muscles in the outdoor spa.

The sunny living space features warm accents and tasteful furnishings, including comfortable sofas placed near a traditional fireplace and a flatscreen TVa perfect spot for a night of movie watching. In the elegant library overlooking the mezzanine curl up with a good book or challenge a loved one to a game of chess. If youre up for cooking, the fully equipped kitchen is stocked with everything youd find at home, and as a bonus, includes a Nespresso machine. You can hire in a chef and cook at an extra cost if you dont feel like lifting a finger.

Up to 16 guests can comfortably stay at Val Bleu, each of its eightbedrooms come with its own ensuite. The master bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and an open bathroom with a large tub, shower and veranda overlooking the garden.

Spend a day wandering through Luberon National Park and the Ceder Forest, or explore the boutique shops of the village of Bonnieux, just 1 km away. Less than 10 kilometers away lies Apt, a historic town once destroyed by the Romans and then rebuilt by Julius Caesar.

Modern Farmhouse in Landscaped Gardens with Heated Pool, Hot Tub + Fitness Room
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Surpassed expectation

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal experience at Val Bleu / La Clapassina. Everything was top notch - beautiful decor, wonderfully appointed, fantastic range of amenities, and helpful support from both the concierge and the on site greeters. The quality of the house and the grounds were much better than we anticipated from the pictures - the views, landscaping, and general ambiance being impossible to capture photographically. I would recommend this location and service to anyone. Finally - chef was excellent!
