Discover the hilltop villages of Provence, visit the Abbaye of Sénanque, hike the red rocks of the Petit Colorado; or just stay home and rest in the shade, take a dip in the pool or a stroll through the adjacent forest. 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 large, 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 groups of family or friends.
The main house has a spacious formal 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.
Three large air-conditioned bedrooms in the main house have their own en suite bathrooms and king-sized beds. They open onto terraces that enjoy gorgeous views of the countryside. Two smaller bedrooms are located in an annex and 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, with en suite bathrooms. Baby furniture and futons for additional guests are available on request.
The beautiful pool is heated so you can enjoy a swim beneath 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 on the large teak table by the BBQ, with a view of the pool.
