Make a villa in Cereste your home away from home

Cereste villas put guests on the edge of the Luberon forest in the Parc Naturel du Luberon. The large but picturesque village hugs the side of the huge Encrème river gorge, and consists of ancient stone houses with clay-tiled roofs, shaded alleys and infrastructure dating back to the Romans and Gauls. As a base for walking holidays, they don't come much better than Cereste accommodation, with unfettered access to the incredible Provencal scenery, mountain villages, legendary cuisine and superb local wines.

Apartments in Cereste typify the medieval nature of the town, with a distinct old town central section and more modern houses on the outskirts and to the west. The Alps to the north and east provide skiing opportunities in the winter, while the coast to the south is reachable by car for days out on the famous beaches of Cannes and St. Tropez. Most Cereste holiday rentals have their own pools, and come with a private barbecue area, fully kitted-out kitchen and laundry facilities.

Things to do

Beaches: The famous beaches of Cannes and St. Tropez are 2-3 hours' drive away from Cereste self caterings, but what trip to the south of France would be complete without the chance to see these legends of the coast? HomeAway offers holiday accommodation in Cannes itself if a more beach-orientated holiday is desired. For beaches and watersports closer to home, the huge Lake of Sainte-Croix has plenty of both at only 40 miles away.

Food and drink: There are a handful of snack bars, cafés and restaurants in and around Cereste, with Restaurant La Pastorale having the best reputation, though the ambiance and facilities are certainly of the rustic variety. For fine dining with all the airs and graces, visitors have to travel to the nearby town of Manosque, about 30 minutes away by car.

Outdoor pursuits: Walking, rambling and hiking are by far the most popular outdoor activities for guests at accommodation in Cereste, with forests, mountains and hills to wander through, soaking up the history with fields of lavender scenting the air. The 65-mile Luberon en Velo cycle path also runs through the village.

Shopping: Shopping is what one might expect from a Luberon village, but there is a market every other Thursday. There is a more regular and extensive market every Sunday in nearby Reillanne, where HomeAway also has luxury holiday homes to rent. The nearest supermarket is in Manosque, about half an hour away by car.

Weather in Cereste

The effect of the Mediterranean climate of the coast is lessened somewhat as the lands rises towards the Alps, so temperatures don't quite hit the highs at sea level. There is lots of sunshine, however, and average maximum temperatures in the summer typically reach 23-24°C. Cereste can also be used as a staging point for skiing holidays in the Alps, with winters highs averaging around 10-11°C. Precipitation is light annually, and concentrates in the autumn.

Travel to Cereste

Cereste is 63 miles from Marseille Airport, and 130 miles from Nice Cote d'Azur Airport, with the latter providing the wider selection of airlines and direct flight options, being the second busiest hub in France. Cote d'Azur accommodation more convenient for the latter is widely available. Cereste can be driven to from the UK, however, with the trip taking two fairly easy days from the UK. Trains are an option too, and can get visitors to the south of France from London in close to nine hours.

Well equipped house with lovely owners

5 of 5
We had a very pleasant and relaxing week in this house. The owners were very kind and accommodating including the lovely dog who would sit outside with us. We went to the museum of pre-histories at Verdon which was fascinating and very well presented including the English language commentary. We were also treated to a display of tombstoning at Verdon gorge where they had boats for hire. We didn’t use the car much as we could walk to the supermarket and also to the centre of Manosque which is picturesque. We loved having lunch there and the Lebanese restaurant and Les Deux Freres were particularly good. We wanted to relax and so did not move around much but there was lots to interest us had we wanted it. Altogether a lovely place to be

Better than the pictures

5 of 5
Sylvie and Patrick were the best hosts - helpful and extremely hospitable. We had a week but really should have had 2 weeks as so peaceful, yet so much to see without travelling too far. Viens is a cool little village. You can take all your Luberon/Provence experiences from the one spot. Apartment was very clean and well appointed. Pool was a great place to refresh. 10/10
