Luxury Villa Rental in Provence Walking Distance to Village of Lacoste - Bastide du Marquis
Description from the manager
Southwest of the city of Avignon, this Provence villa rental is situated in an area filled with characteristic French villages and beautiful green countryside. But this self-catering Vaucluse villa is not just about great location. It's about experiencing the elegance and charm of French life while living in a 19th century mansion. Spend relaxing evenings in one of the opulent sitting rooms, or enjoy a glass of local wine by the pool. When the spirit of exploration strikes, you can wander around nearby Lacoste or Bonnieux; or, alternately, take a day trip into Avignon or St Remy. Whatever their personalities or interests, everyone is certain to find something to delight with this Provence holiday rental.
Located in the middle of a six acre estate planted with fruit trees, vines, lavender, almond trees, olive trees, and evergreens, any season from March to October in this villa will present its share of fruit and fragrances. This 19th century restored mansion is situated amidst the shade of ancient lime, oak, and cedar trees. A swimming pool offers a quiet, serene place to sunbathe or cool off, and can be heated on request for an extra charge. An outdoor pool house has toilettes and a shower. There are also terraces set around the house, offering sun or shade at any time of day. A petanque ground sits amidst the wood, where you can enjoy views of the Vaucluse valley.

Excellent location. There is so much to see near this wonderful villa! Perfect amount of privacy and community with fellow travelers.
Private baths with each bedroom, pool, chef extra, views - Vive la France!
Beds a little hard. Directions a little hard to follow on initial arrival.
Wonderful, quaint little towns nearby. The markets are the best, so it is nice that the villa provides a list of local markets. The local olives, wines, cherries and lavender were wonderful! Not to mention the wine.
