Charming Hillside Country House Le Vieux Chene with Private Heated Pool, Gardens & Views
Description from the manager
With one of the most enviable locations amongst Provence villa rentals, this charming property is set on 98 acres (40 hectares) in the hills of the beautiful Luberon region. It has everything you need for a wonderfully relaxing holiday under the Provençal sun.
Le Vieux Chene (“the old oak tree”) makes the most of its superb setting and spectacular 360 degree views. The villa’s terrace leads onto a well-maintained lawn and the marvelous pool area, an idyllic spot for long, lazy days and sultry summer evenings. The pool itself is heated, while a private tennis court adds to the exclusivity of this delightful retreat.
There are two separate buildings – the high house and the low house, both self-contained with living space and kitchen. Between them they offer an abundance of space for up to twelve guests. Each features authentic local character in details such as the original wooden beams, charming tiled floors, and traditional Provençal fabrics and furnishings.
Enjoy a good night’s sleep in the six attractive bedrooms – three in each house, simply but comfortably furnished in French country style. The same look can be found in the beautifully tiled bathrooms, some of which are furnished with claw-footed bathtubs.
The Luberon is famous for its scenery, in particular the lavender fields which lend the landscape a rich purple hue in late June and July, and its picturesque stone villages. The region is a joy to explore, and there’s plenty to visit throughout Provence too, from historic Avignon to arty Aix-en-Provence.
