On first appearance, this large holiday villa in Provence with large heated pool and views would seem to be an old stone-built Mas. It is in fact a recently built, architect-designed property where traditional styling and craftsmanship have merged into a blend of new and old with the most beautiful results. This large holiday villa in Provence has all the charm of an old property whilst offering every modern comfort and convenience.
With the Luberon hills providing a stunning backdrop and panoramic views across the valley, this villa offers a wonderfully calming place to retreat and recharge the batteries! The local village of Coustellet is close at hand for your morning croissants, whilst the larger village of Gordes, one of the most photographed villages of Provence, is just 4 miles north. Cavaillon is within 10 miles for large supermarkets.
L' Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, considered to be the largest antique centre outside of Paris, is an easy drive and the Sunday market here is well worth a visit. This large holiday villa in Provence is also near Apt, which is famous for its excellent market, as well as the villages of Menerbes, Bonnieux and Roussillon.

What can I say - just look at the pictures! This is one of my favourite villas, very elegant inside with amazing views and in a beautiful area. The housekeeper is very welcoming and you will feel very relaxed and 'at home' here. Down the road in Coustellet is La Maison Gouin, a restaurant you just have to try! This is a family-run business, butcher and delicatessen, all organic. Best of all is that when you lunch or dine here you are invited down to the cellar to choose your own bottle. There is also a small new restaurant called WO Sushi whichmay be worth trying if you want a change from typical Provencal cuisine! Coustellet is also famous for its farmers' market, reputedly the best in Provence: this is held on Sundays and is not geared towards tourists so it remains a genuine Provencal experience.
