About the property

Village house in the Luberon. Pool, AC, 3 bedrooms en suite, summer kitchen

Charming 18th century village house with south facing yard and pool in the peaceful and picturesque village of Mérindol, on the southern slopes of the Luberon halfway between Avignon and Aix-en-Provence.

The house sleeps 6 in three double bedrooms, each with bath or shower room, two of which have private toilets. The two top floor bedrooms are air-conditioned and the third bedroom, at pool level, has thick stone walls and a vaulted ceiling which keep it cool in summer. On the main floor are the living room with a large fireplace, the dining room, a third toilet, and a fully equipped kitchen leading onto a raised south-facing terrace overlooking the village rooftops and the valley of the Durance.

The courtyard is walled, providing privacy for the swimming pool and covered patio. The patio has a 6-8 person dining table, and for warm days has a ceiling fan and curtains that can be drawn to provide protection from the sun. There is a second kitchen beside the patio and also a barbecue. Each of the kitchens is fully equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, hot plates, oven and micro-wave.

There is a parking space beside the house and a closed garage. There are laundry facilities, WiFi internet access, cable TV and a telephone which may be used for receiving calls and for outgoing calls to the USA and Canada and to fixed lines in Europe.

The rear entrance of the house is only fifty yards from the centre of the village, which has bakers, butchers, a greengrocer and several cafés and restaurants. There are also tennis courts, an area for Provençal boules (petanque), and a children's playground. Close by there are opportunities for riding, kayak on the Durance and a golf course at Pont Royal, 15 minutes away. The village is well placed for cycling and walking on the Luberon hills and in the valley of the Durance. Many well-known Provençal villages and towns are within easy access by car, including Aix, Avignon, St. Remy, Salon, les Baux, Apt, Gordes, Marseille and the Camargue, Closer to Mérindol there are many beautiful villages with a wide range of restaurants and cafes.

The house is built on three levels and so it may not be suitable for people who have difficulty with stairs. The pool has an alarm to warn of someone falling into the water, but families with young children who do not know how to swim would need to be comfortable with this. We regret that we do not accept animals. The house is rented by the week, Saturday to Saturday.

Another fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our 3rd wonderful holiday in this lovely house - more of a home than a holiday rental. It is tastefully furnished, extremely well equipped and with the summer kitchen close by the pool we were thoroughly spoilt. We really appreciated all the additional extras e.g. range of teas and coffees, toiletries in the bathroom, wine in the fridge etc. It was so nice not to have to spend the first day shopping for essentials like washing up liquid etc. The house is in the heart of Merindol, a delightful village with an interesting history, narrow streets and lovely architecture. There are several good restaurants, boulangeries and a grocery shop in the village. The pizzeria is particularly good value and the hosts are very welcoming. There are some fabulous walks on hand too, for example, up to the Luberon mountains or down to the river Durance. When you do need to go further afield, the nearby town of Mallemort has a two large supermarkets and a large street market on Fridays. And of course there is Avignon, such a beautiful city and well worth a visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house and hope to return again for a 4th time.

De merveilleuses vacances dans le Luberon

  • 5 of 5

En Mai 2009 des vacances merveilleuses dans ce coin de Provence. La maison chaleureuse et accueillante (à l’image de ses propriétaires), restaurée avec goût. On s’y sent chez soi. Très bien équipée, confortable. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la cuisine d’été près de la piscine. Chaque chambre très bien décorée est équipée d’une salle d’eau. A noter pour les mordus d’Internet il y a le haut débit et la connexion Wifi. Maison située dans le village historique de Merindol à 50 mètres du centre. Endroit très calme, voisinage agréable. Toutes commodités sur place : santé, commerces, bars, restaurants, poste,…. bus. Tout se conjugue pour vivre « l’ambiance provence » : maison, village, habitants, visites historiques, promenades, randonnées à pied ou à vélo dans de merveilleux paysages à la végétation très variée. Dans le village bus pour Cavaillon et de Cavaillon d’autres correspondances pour visiter le Luberon ou aller à Avignon. On peut partir à 7h30 de Merindol et arriver à 8h50 à Avignon. Au centre du village un terrain de pétanque où vous êtes le bienvenu. En Mai l’eau de la piscine était un peu fraîche mais tous les cerisiers étaient en fleurs pour le plaisir des yeux et les belles aspergeraies productives pour les gourmands. Ce séjour fut un enchantement pour toute la famille. Aucune déception, que du positif. Vivement recommandé. Nous y reviendrons.
