Perks for the Parents

This relaxed residence in the heart of the Luberon National Park near Roussillon, France has separate villas for 2 families traveling together. It sleeps 12 + 1. This property offers flexible set-ups for multi-generational trips, kids of different ages or parents traveling with a nanny. Both villas on the site have lounging and kitchen areas, and there’s space for everyone to come together outside, so it’s ideal for groups who want to vacation together but need their own private space. Located in the beautiful heart of the South of France, it’s the perfect spot for exploring this region’s picturesque villages and historic sights.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great place for kids to explore and get back to nature. Located within a huge natural park, there’s so much space for kids to play, climb trees and run around. While there are no toys for toddlers or young children, the kids can happily splash in the pool all day long, while adults can keep a close watch from the connected living areas or terraces. The neighboring villages have lots of historic forts and castles to discover and there’s an aqua park and zipline center less than an hour away (Aquapark Aix-en-Provence, 50 minutes’ drive).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. The host will accept groups of up to 12. Tourist tax is not included and should be paid directly to the host on arrival (approximately 4EUR per adult per night, depending on location). Safety notes: the secure swimming pool is protected by a 15m x 10m safety barrier and cover. The house has a security alarm and this is safe rural area. Air conditioning is available in all of the upper house rooms (Villa Samduo) and in 2 of the bedrooms in the lower house (Villa Samduba) with individual remote controls located in each room. Parking is available outside the property and car rental is essential. Pets are welcome on request, but not allowed in the pool, the bedrooms or on the sofas.

About the Location

The villa is nestled in the heart of the Lubéron Regional Natural Park, in Roussillon, France. The property is surrounded by a landscaped park (3000m2) with beautiful views and spectacular sunsets. This area is close to some of the prettiest villages in France and the Luberon. Visit Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon (all less than half an hour away) for traditional Provencal bakeries and local produce markets. You can also visit L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (the Little Venice of Provence) on the River Sorgue for family days out (45 minutes’ drive). Avignon and Aix-en-Provence are both 1 hour away. Marseille international airport is 1 hour 15 minutes’ drive.

Style Notes

Rural retreat. The villas have been recently repainted and all the furnishings and beds have been replaced to create a fresh, new, welcoming home for families. Families will love coming together around the cozy fireplaces (there’s 1 in each living room) and both houses are filled with vintage items and antiques to add interest. We love the colorful selection of contemporary artwork on the walls, the textured rattan sofas and the unique spiraling staircase.

I am in love with Provence. I love the blue of the sky, the heat in Summer, the cold in Winter..the food, the people.. Al the properties I managed have been carefully chosen and all of them are kids friendly. I know my region by heart and I can help you to plan your holidays. For your kids, many activities, potery, art classes, cooking classes, climb tree experiences, fishing, canoeing etc.. For you, parents: Wine tour, Air tour above Provence and Luberon, cooking class or private chef at home, perfume making etc..

Roussillon, Provence

A riot of color

In the Luberon Valley in southeast France, east of Avignon and north of Marseille, Roussillon is a stunning village of medieval streets and gourmet restaurants. The fields around the town are stained a bright ochre red and there are walking trails through the old ochre quarries. It is one of the area’s most loved hilltop villages.

One of the best family vacations for our extended family. The location is ideal and is a quiet and picturesque property that is very well maintained. There are two separate homes that allow for adequate space for younger children. The pool is great as is the shared outdoor patio. The owner is very responsive and we had great support while visiting. We had a chef come in to prepare meals during our stay. Definitely would consider visiting again. Highly recommended!
