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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Einmalig, fantastisch ruhig, mehr geht nicht.

  • 5 of 5

Unser Aufenthalt in der Bastide Belle de Jouques war wunderschön. Das Haus hat alles was man braucht. Der Garten mit dem Pool und seinen verschiedensten Früchten gleicht einem Garten Eden

Wir können das Haus nur weiter empfehlen, auch deshalb schon weil Herr Klostermann nicht nur freundlich sondern auch äusserst hilfsbereit ist.

Wir werden das Haus sicher nochmals geniessen dürfen

Wir waren 10 Tage in diesem wundervollen Haus. Thomas der Vermieter ist nur zu empfehlen. Er ist super freundlich sehr interessiert an dem Wohl seiner Gäste. Der eigene Pool hinter dem Haus is natürlich der Höhepunkt für uns gewesen. Ruhe,Natur,Erholung pur. Danke Thomas für unsere schönen Flitterwochen Liebe Grüße Lisa & Patrick

Dieses Jahr waren wir zum 4. Mal in der Bastide, und wir werden wieder 2017 für zwei Wochen "nach Hause fahren" ja, es ist unser zweites Zu Hause geworden. Mehr muss und kann man dieser wunderschönen, ruhigen erholsamen " belle de Jouques " an Lob nicht aussprechen. Ein großes Dankeschön auch an einen absolut tollen Vermieter. Merci beaucoup à mes nouveaux amies!!! À bientôt

Belle Jouques

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wunderbare und sehr erholsame zwei Wochen in diesem wunderschönen und gepflegten Haus und viel Spaß am Pool. Es war alles da im Haus entsprechend den Angaben und die Lage war herrlich ruhig und dennoch gut für Ausflüge z.B. nach Aix (mit Bus direkt vom Ort Jouques), ins Luberon und Mt. St. Victoire. Wir würden das Haus jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

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:
