Beautiful Farmhouse La Belle Etoile in Completely Private Grounds with Pool & Terraces
Description from the manager
La Belle Etoile, or “beautiful star,” is a charming restored farmhouse set on over seventeen acres of prime Provencal country land. The residence is surrounded by pines, olive trees and vineyards. Located at the foot of the Luberon mountain, at the edge of the village of Lourmarin, this lovely French villa is located within easy driving distance of various historical sites and fun activities.
The grounds at La Belle Etoile feature a pristine, fenced swimming pool. The deck area provides ample sun loungers and umbrellas. To maximize your enjoyment of alfresco life, the villa includes three terraces, two shaded. Outdoor dining options are also available so you can soak in the picturesque views while getting your share of fresh country air. Indoors, you will find a TV with DVD player and Internet access.
The interiors of La Belle Etoile maintain a balance between history and the conveniences of today. The kitchen maintains the key ingredients of French country charm, alongside modern amenities. The formal dining area with a large square table and wooden columns makes an intimate, yet stately setting in which to share any special announcements with your loved ones or entourage. The curved stone staircase speaks of an era gone by.
Six plush and elegant bedrooms welcome up to eleven guests at La Belle Etoile. The bedrooms are decorated according to their own color palettes. Though refurbished, they retain decorative Provencal elements. Luxurious accoutrements and linens provide the coziest of sleeps.
While you will be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Lourmarin, you will also be within a short drive of all the culture and history both Avignon and Aix-en-Provence have to offer. Golfers will also enjoy teeing off at the nearby Provence Country Club. Another top rated attraction in the area is Carrieres de Lumieres where you can be a part of immersive, multi-media artistic experiences. However you spend your days in France, have yourself a brilliant holiday or getaway at La Belle Etoile!
