This beautiful country home with infinity pool sleeps up to 6 and is set in a fabulous extensive grounds, where kids can run riot truffle hunting or firing bows and arrows at imaginary bad guys. Set in a national park in the heart of Provence’s Luberon valley, the views stretch across lavender bushes, pines and olive trees. There’s a large terrace, pool with decking area, and ample picnicking spots, along with three beautiful bedrooms. The open-plan living makes it ideal for families with children who relish exploring.

I am French but have lived outside France for the past 10 years. California, Denmark, the UK and now Dubai. Since we are moving all the time, we have decided to buy a family house for our children to feel home, a house in a place we love. South of France was a natural choice for us: i used to spend all my summers there with my Aunt, Uncle and cousins and my husband drove all the way down from Denmark with his parents as a kid to enjoy the country life and delicious food. Luberon is a piece of heaven with its beautiful scenery, culture and preserved beauty. We relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty everytime we are there.

This property is one of those rare finds, where it's more beautiful than the images online. When we drove up to the property, we were surrounded by the beauty of Provence's nature and a view of the valley below. This property has it all - space, privacy, it's well-equipped, and oh so family friendly! Our kids had a blast playing with the toys on site and, of course, playing in the pool most of all. Our stay here was hands down the highlight of our vacation and I would recommend it without reservations.

It was clean and no surprise. The house was not easy to find but the owner gaved the GPS coordinate which was really helpful. They were nice and some toys were there for the kids. It was a great house to rent, we are happy with our choice.

We had an absolutely wonderful time in this beautiful home, the view is breathtaking, with the sunsets which get better each night. It is very well appointed, very comfortable, but with loads of style. The caretaker was incredibly helpful and kind, we hope to return again.

Gordes, Luberon

In the foothills of the mountains

Due west of Avignon, Gordes is one of the most beautiful villages in France, perched up on the foothills of the Vaucluse mountains overlooking the Luberon plain. Known as the capital of the Luberon, its ancient houses cling to the hillside and offer tight alleyways and narrow cobblestoned streets to explore. Don’t miss the Tuesday market for handicrafts, souvenirs and fresh produce; it’s a great place to get the kids trying out their best French.
