If you are looking for the perfect house in Provence, you just found it.
We had two wonderful weeks at this house and loved every minute of it. In the middle of the countryside, in fact surrounded by vineyards (where you can do wine tasting), local towns and amenities, it’s the perfect setting to relax and enjoy everything about this beautiful part of France.
Thomas, the owner is superb too. He will meet you, settle you in and check back that everything is ok a few days later...nothing is too much trouble. Crucially too, Thomas manages to keep the property spotless and full of character befitting of its location....rustic and modern are combined perfectly.
Quite simply, you will love this place, just as my entire family did.
This charming bastide is just that... charming. Located on a quiet street above the town, this property comes with pool, outdoor grill, lavender, grape vines, olive trees and plenty of outdoor seating areas. The kitchen well outfitted with most everything you need. The sleeping quarters comfortable and handy to have a W/D in the upstairs bath! Breakfast on the front terrace, day trips to the many neighboring towns and lounging by the pool for a late afternoon respite prior to dinner made our days in Jouques so memorable. The open air market and Boucherie exceeded our expectations. Thomas, the owner, met us in town to guide us to his home. He toured us through his property and was most accommodating. His 'Bastide Bible' provided all (and more) necessary info. Our welcome bottle of wine and fruit was an unexpected delight! Thomas truly wants your visit to Belle de Jouques to be perfect. Do not hesitate to reserve this property if planning your holiday to the Luberon. Many thanks Thomas for sharing your home with us!!!
500 stars! Best rental experience ever!
We can't thank Thomas the owner enough for a wonderful week. The house was beautifully maintained, tastefully decorated and really exceeded our already high expectations. The salt water pool was perfect for daily swimming (the kids say it was "awesome" "we loved it"). Thomas provided lots of maps and brochures for local activities. The kitchen was well very equipped, we cooked every night (even baked tarts for dessert) except one when we walked to a fantastic countryside restaurant. Spacious, comfortable, perfect blend of old world country charm and up-to-date amenities. Bocce ball in the driveway, hiking up the neighboring mountain from our front door, returning to a swim, outdoor shower and dinner on the terrace…Incredible week. Thanks again, Thomas, can't wait to come back!
Sehr schönes und gut eingerichtetes Haus, hilfsbereiter und freundlicher Vermieter. Möchten auf jeden Fall wieder kommen. Danke für die Gastfreundschaft
„If you are looking to experience Provence in all it's splendor and atmosphere, look no further. The Bastide "Belle de Jouques" is an absolute gem. Placed in breathtaking scenery, surrounded by hills in the distance and with a hint of lavender in the air, it simply doesn't get any better than this. We (2 adults and 2 children) spent a wonderful 5 days enjoying this beauty of a house and spending numerous hours by the great swimming pool. Thank you Thomas for being such a great host and fore making us feel at home in "La Belle de Jouques". Merci mille fois pour un merveilleux séjour. Christian, Betina, Ida et Mads :o) “

The Bastide is situated at the country side near the medieval village Jouques-en-Provence, only 4 kms to the center of Jouques.
Jouques is a very charming, typically village in the Provence, situated between the Durance and the Sainte Victoire mountain. Even in the high season it is not crowded and quiet, with a balanced atmosphere. This beautiful place was always loved by many artists who were inspired by the landscape, the colors and the light of Jouques.
The village offers all necessary shopping facileties (butcher, baker, two small supermarkets, pharmacy, bank, post office, restaurants, hairdressers etc) as well as a typical market each Sunday morning. Footpaths and cycle tracks, tennis, Boules place, parties in the summertime.
The central position in the heart of the Provence offers various sightseeing-trips:
The cultural city Aix en Provence with museums, opera, theater, festivals; only 23 kms from Jouques.
Marseilles 50km, Avignon 80km.
