Discover the hilltop villages of Provence and return home to a beautiful and private oasis. The beaches of the Mediterranean are an hour away, and the colorful open-air markets of Gordes, Roussillon, Coustellet and Apt are within 5-15 minutes. Visit local farms for fresh produce or shop in Goult (5 min.) where you will find a butcher, baker, grocery shops and a café. Large supermarkets can be found in Cavaillon and Apt (15 min. each). Facilities for golf, tennis and horseback riding are available nearby.
Nestled in the foothills of the Luberon, this luxurious villa overlooks the vineyards of Mont Ventoux and the villages of Roussillon and Joucas. Recently built by a local architect, the house uses traditional local white stone in a modern design. Wide open spaces on the main floor lead to several covered terraces and a beautiful “infinity” pool. Maison de Martine is ideal for large or small groups of family or friends.
The Main House (sleeps 6)
The main house has a luminous living room and a dining room that can accommodate twelve, as well as a TV room with satellite TV. But the heart of La Maison Martine is the kitchen, decorated in typical Provencal style. Top-of-the-line appliances, a large pantry, cookware ranging from family heirlooms to modern pots and pans, and American measuring tools and cookbooks make the kitchen fit for the gourmet cook. The villa gives the impression of soaring space with lovely indoor / outdoor living. The windows are designed to take full advantage of the beautiful views.
Upstairs in the main house are three large air-conditioned bedrooms. Each has an en-suite bathroom and a king-sized bed. The bedrooms also open onto terraces that enjoy gorgeous views of the countryside.
The Guest Annex (sleeps 4+2)
Next to the main house are two smaller bedrooms that are perfect for teenagers or a nanny and young children. One has a queen-sized bed and the other has twin beds; both are air-conditioned, and have en-suite bathrooms. Baby furniture and futons for additional guests are available on request.
Note: For smaller groups (up to six guests), the main house can be rented without the guest annex at reduced cost. The annex will not be rented on its own, so the property will still be private.
The beautiful pool is heated so you can enjoy a swim under the stars, watching the twinkling lights in the valley below. Enjoy breakfast on the back patio, a drink in the outdoor living room, or dinner en plein air on the large teak table by the BBQ, with a view of the pool and country beyond.
Amenities: heated pool, fireplace, telephone, WiFi, satellite TV, DVD/VCR, stereo, microwave, dishwasher, washer & dryer.
Maison de Martine is a non-smoking property.
