Traditional Countryside Home La Belle Paysanne with Private Pool, Alfresco Dining & Lovely Views
Description from the manager
La Belle Paysanne, or “the beautiful farmer,” maintains all the charm of the historical French countryside alongside modern luxury amenities. This eighteenth century, refurbished, dry stone sheepfold is set on the hillside of Luberon and offers a stunning 360 degree view over the green oaks and lavender fields growing along the hillside. The villa is situated within a ten minute bike ride to the hilltop town of Bonnieux, where daily life bustles amid cafes, restaurants and a selection of great boutiques.
The grounds at La Belle Paysanne include a basin pool sunk into the terrace that overlooks the natural landscape. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system with satellite TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi access. Feel free to ask our dedicated concierge about the many options including pre-stocking, personal chef, massage and yoga for the ultimate in pampering and relaxation. For safety and security, the property is protected by an alarm system, a small wall and a wrought iron gate. Security guards can be provided on request.
The property has been beautifully renovated with local stone and wooden beams. The kitchen is a chef’s delight—spacious and well equipped. Ample dining options are provided in the kitchen or in the courtyard under the shade on the terrace. Admire the views and the light fragrance of thyme. The center of the living room features a fireplace and the walls are warm with stone.
Five elegant bedrooms accommodate up to ten guests at La Belle Paysanne. Two of the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms. Cozy linens and plush accoutrements offer a serene night of rest. Fall asleep to nothing but the sound of crickets chirping in the distance.
From the villa, one can go for a hike, or a drive to either nearby Lourmarin or the busy town of Apt where you might charter a hot air balloon ride at Montgolfiere Vol Terre. For golfers, there are several excellent courses in the area such as Golf de Servanes at Mouriès and Golf de Pont Royal. Nearby Isle Sur La Sorgue, a dream city built around a series of canals, also makes a fabulous visit during your stay in Provence. Whether wine, cheese or just taking in the fresh country breeze, La Belle Paysanne provides everything required for a fabulous French holiday!
