About the property

The Villa Rouge is located in the heart of the village, right next to the Main square and the many restaurants and cafés, galleries and shops. Everything you need is just a short-walk away: the bakery, butcher, supermarket, tobacco store, post-office, doctor and chemist’s store. Luberon offers you the best of Provence : a sweet climate, many cultural sites to visit, as well as an authentic nature, delicious local products, and a craftsmanship to discover.

The Villa was built in 1849, in the typical architecture of Luberon. Perched on the hill-top, you’ll benefit from an exceptional panoramic view on the Mont Ventoux, the famous mountain in the French artist Paul Cezanne’s paintings, as well as on the plateau of Vaucluse, the ochre quarries and surrounding vineyards.

Its decor, inspired by Provençal style, is authentic and sophisticated, and offers great comfort. The villa has 3 rooms, one of them a Suite. Each room has a bathroom (a shower for both rooms and a bathtub for the Suite). The vast lounge of 60m² is very bright and perfect to relax in. You can browse through the books put at your disposal. There is WIFI connection, Apple TV, Sonos system for your device to play music, games and books.

The house revolves around its “cathedral” kitchen, fully equipped. Located on the ground floor, it has an incredible view on the surroundings. You can welcome there a dozen of guests, and make of it the high-light of your culinary and wine delights.

Outside, there is a big patio, decorated with flowers and plants. Two pergolas allow you to have lunch or rest in the shade. You can also cool in the stone pool, warmed if necessary for a supplemental fee (4m x 4m). It is equipped with an alarm.

VERY IMPORTANT - You have at your disposal a garage and a laundry with a washing machine, a dryer and a washing line.

The house offers the perfect combination to guarantee you an unforgettable stay in the Luberon : a perfect location in a mythical village, with all the needed shops.

About Marion TIPHAINE

We are a French-American family happy to welcome you in our home ;-)

Marion TIPHAINE purchased this house in 2014

Why Marion TIPHAINE chose Roussillon

The village of Roussillon is one of the most beautiful of France and the second most visited in the Luberon after the village of Gordes. With its festival of ochre colors and hill-top position, it is one of Provence’s jewels. It is hard to depict the true splendor of Roussillon. 17 shades of ochre paint the village’s houses. Imagine the amazing contrast with the green pines, blue sky and red cliffs… Roussillon, with its history, vineyards and unique location, is the French savoir-vivre at its best. In the region of Provence, between the mountains of the Luberon and the Vaucluse, Roussillon sparkles with ochred light. Discover this unique mineral treasure of surprising blazing colors, right in the heart of the world’s most important ochre deposit.

What makes this house unique

To visit : the XIth century parochial church Saint Michel, the tower of the ancient ramparts, with a gothic passage and XIXth century bell tower, Saint Jean castle, the mill, the Ochre and Applied Pigments Conservatory located in a former ochre manufacture. Recommended activities : the ochre trail (entrance fee) will lead you to the 'Giants' Causeway', walking through natural chimneys and several majestic sites carved by water, wind and man. Provençal market : Thursday morning. Festivities : the Ochre Day celebrations on Ascension Day. Traditional cow feria on the last sunday of July. International festival of string quartets in the summer. Illumination of the cliffs during the summer. Many exhibitions from April to October Nearby : the typical Provençal markets of Gordes (20min) - tuesday morning The farmer market of Coustellet (15mn) - sunday morning The secondhand market in the town of Isle on Sorgue (15min) - saturday and sunday morning Hiking in the natural reserve of the Luberon Golf de Saumane (20min) Canoening at Fontaine de Vaucluse (20mn) Horse-ridding

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a party of four "seniors" on our second visit to the Luberon and this was our first stay in Roussillon. The location of the La Villa Rouge is perfect with great distant views and good access to all of the village amenities with everything close at hand within a short walking distance, literally a minute or two to the shops and restaurants. We particularly liked going to the Boulangerie early every morning for our supplies of bread. We liked the characterful and spacious rooms and the magnificent and unusual dining table. The lounge is very spacious with plenty of seating areas. We really appreciated the efficient and cosy heating system (as the early mornings and evenings were relatively cool in early April), the wi-fi network and the Sonos music system which I could control with my Sonos iPhone app. The excellent en-suite facilities, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen all contributed to a most enjoyable stay. Jean Raphael of LVB Vaucluse Central was most helpful and very prompt to assist when we had a minor hitch with the boiler when it was refusing to stay on one day - this was quickly resolved and did not detract from our enjoyment of the house. I would have no hesitation in recommending La Villa Rouge and hope that we can return soon. Roussillon makes a good base for exploring the area.

We had some good meals in the Restaurant David in the nearby Le Clos de la Glycine hotel. The restaurant is relatively expensive compared with the others in the village but the food is excellent, well presented and well served by attentive staff and the restaurant has the benefit of great views towards the ochre quarries and across towards Mt. Ventoux. We also enjoyed re-visiting the restaurant La Fontaine in Villars, a friendly family run restaurant with a characterful "antique shop" ambience, with excellent food (the menu changes weekly) where Nadine once again made us feel most welcome. There are plenty of good walking routes within a short drive (as well as a few from the doorstep). There are good views on the walk on the Falaise de Lioux which is close by; a pleasant circular walk between Bonnieux and Lacoste; exploring the Bories on walks from Gordes and Viens; walking from Buoux to Sivergues and back and exploring the old ruins at Fort Buoux en route.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of two couples who absolutely loved staying at this wonderful house & visiting the beautifully exquisite town of Roussillon! The house has gorgeous views, comfortable furnishings, & a well-stocked kitchen. We especially loved the location of the house... just steps away from the village & its shops, bakeries, markets & restaurants. The ochre mountains that surround the village are breathtaking to see & shouldn't be missed. Overall, a piece of paradise we'd highly recommend!!!

Excellent la villa Rouge

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property in Roussillon (ID 4025757) was a fantastic experience. The standard of accommodation is very good, the location is great and the town is a fun place to be. The accommodation is fresh and clean with an ensuite for each room, a large lounge area and very good indoor and outdoor dining. The people who met us and ensured we were settled were very helpful and great to talk to. We would not hesitate to recommend this property and we will return.

Wonderful, spacious, perfectly located home

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get a taste of life in the gorgeous village of Rousillon, the Villa Rouge is an ideal choice. This home is centrally located, a few steps away from a main town square filled with shops and restaurants, cafes. The house also had a fantastic courtyard and pool with stunning views of the Ochre cliffs and nearby mountains. The pictures of the home simply do not do justice to this stunning home and setting. The house itself perfectly met our needs, as did the gracious welcome and hospitality bestowed on us by the owner and her hostess. We hope to return one day to this spectacular property.

Wonderful Stay in Roussillon!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a week at La Villa Roussillon in March and it was simply perfect! The house was spacious and the layout was great giving everyone their own space. The location was in the center of the village allowing us to easily stroll around town and not have to worry about taking a car to dinner. It was definitely a perk though having a garage to park the car in so we could easily pop around the area and not have to walk to a car park or worry about finding a place to park when we returned. We also loved the convenience of having a washer and dryer. I don't hesitate at all in providing 5 stars as the property was perfectly maintained and the owner was always responsive and attentive!

Outstanding Villa, well located, beautifully appointed and very well serviced.

  • 5 of 5

This is not the first villa we have stayed in, but it was certainly the best. We were impressed from the minute we booked. Communication with the owner, Marion, was excellent and our greeting from the agents in Roussillon, Camille and JR, was similarly excellent. The villa itself was well located and allowed us to immerse ourselves in village life as well as access many nearby attractions. Having a garage was a massive bonus given that parking in most small villages is difficult at the best of times. While we had the Villa to ourselves, it is also perfect for a family or group of friends. It was clean, tastefully decorated, well equipped and the beds very comfortable. The inclusion of an apple TV and Sonos added to the ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, were grateful for the hospitality and kindness extended to us and would absolutely recommend this property to couples looking for a quiet getaway or families and groups of friends looking for a central location from which to explore Roussillon and its beautiful ochre sights and the surrounding villages and towns of Provence. Absolutely 5 star.
