About our home

The Villa is the perfect home to enjoy the essence of provence. On hot summer days, lounge on the covered patio or down by the pool listening to the cidacas and crickets in the scorched provencial air. The home inviets you with a 16th century Abbey door. Lots of little areas to retreat to on different terraces or down by the Pergola and Boulodrome. Feast on big lunches and dinners on the covered Patio overlooking the ruins of the tower on the neighboring hill (a short 15 minute walk away). In the winter, retreat to the oversized fireplace fit for a castle with a bottle of wine, and enjoy the foraging for truffles during the game and truffle season. The village with it's main square less than a 5 minute walk away, offers quintessential Provençal life with open air market, little cafes, and one of the few Michelin star restaurants in the area.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

One of the most picturesque Provencal towns in the area. The villages meanders through beautiful little cobblestone streets with boulangeries (bakeries), Tabac, and little shops nestled into the quiet streets whispering conversations from nearby passer-byers. End up in the center of the village for an aperitif by the etang (small pond) surrounded by majestic plane trees. Have dinner at one of the the local spots where everyone goes to, or treat yourself to a degustation at the michelin restaurant. Quaint and picturesque does not even to do the village justice, all the while providing access to a never-ending supply of day trips, vineyard tours, or just relaxing at home.
