  • Walking distance to Roussillon and restaurants

Perched on a Provençal hillside, with exceptional and far-reaching views, Villa Belle Vue offers that elusive combination of seclusion and proximity to some of the best little restaurants in the area. The house sits just 1km–easily walkable–from the pretty squares and rose-coloured houses of Roussillon. This village is considered a must-see amongst this region’s many highlights, and has plenty of options for a quiet coffee, a glass of local wine or a full gourmet lunch with the magnificent Luberon landscape laid out like a painting below.

The villa is very tastefully finished in contemporary-country style, making it comfortable, cosy and full of character. The pool is generously sized and perfectly placed to enjoy the hill-top panorama, nestled in Mediterranean-style gardens which scent the air with the indefinable but unmistakable fragrance of Provence as day fades into evening. You can gather here for drinks before the leisurely stroll into Roussillon for dinner, or assemble some delicious local specialities for a simple feast in the privacy of your villa garden. With four bedrooms, the house works well for two families travelling together, combining excellent facilities and a location to suit everyone from photographers and sightseers to swimmers and sun-lovers.

The local area

The Luberon is so jam-packed with gorgeous hill-top towns and villages that just about every signpost you pass will have you reaching for the guidebook. You’re surrounded by famous names such as Gordes (7km), Ménerbes (15km) and Bonnieux (12km), and if the waistline starts to suffer after too much tapenade, truffles and tarte aux abricots, you can follow the Luberon bike trail or take to the hills on foot. You won’t have to drive far to find stunningly photogenic lavender fields either, especially if you’re here between June and August when the purple haze is at its height. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, bisected by the sparkling Sorgue river, is full of interesting antique shops, whilst Avignon (45km) is a longer but very rewarding day out, though best visited in the quieter early or late season months.

Our choice of French properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

There’s no better way to while away leisurely holiday hours than by visiting the boutiques, chic cafés and flower markets of elegant Aix-en-Provence or wandering the cobbled streets of the beautiful hilltop village of Gordes. And in Provence the past is ever-present in Tarascon’s Medieval, Romanesque and Gothic influences and the Roman amphitheatre in Arles.

Introduce fragrant fields of lavender, rolling hills and the red salt lagoons of the nearby Camargue National Park and before you lies a holiday destination to rival any other, complemented by our selection of handpicked luxury villas to help you make the most of your luxury holiday in Provence.
