Villa Provence Rose is a wonderful old 18th century farmhouse, lovingly restored and situated between the bustling town of Apt and the delightful village of Saignon, with superb views of the Luberon National Park.
This villa in Provence is ideal for 2 families sharing, as the accommodation is divided between the main part of the house and a second wing, separated by a central hallway, and thus affording privacy and space for all. Country chic furnishings, beamed ceilings and tiled floors all help to create a charming property that is ideally placed for those who wish to explore this lovely region.
Villa Rose is within close driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes and Roussillon. Famous Avignon, the capital of Provence, and Aix-en-Provence, one of France's most beautiful university towns, are only about 30 miles away from this Provence villa.
The perfect place for families with children, I love the huge terraced area. Down the road there is a riding stable, which could be of interest for the young .A short drive from the house you’ll get to Apt with its famous weekly market on a Saturday and why not try the Bistro de France afterwards for lunch. Another little village worth a visit about 5-10 minutes away is Saignon, a hilltop village. Do make the extra effort and climb the rock of Saignon where you get a fantastic view across the landscape, then treat yourself to lunch afterwards at Le Baladine across the road from the church.
