A Fabulous week at La Bellene!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at La Bellene. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. La Bellene is a piece of paradise and we enjoyed every minute. Situated a few minutes drive from Gordes, it was the perfect location to explore the villages of Luberon. As much as we enjoyed seeing the country side and all the quaint villages, our favorite was relaxing around the infinity pool and cooking out alfresco. The days we did venture out, we could not wait to get back to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets and drink our wine under the stars. The property itself is a treat with a beautiful restored stone home surrounded by olive trees and a lavender field lying adjacent to the pool. The interior of the house is welcoming and serenely elegant. La Bellene was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy an incredible week in Provence. Thank you Jean-Francoise for making this home available for many to enjoy. Wanted to let you know that Nicolas was great and right there if we needed anything. We hope to return one day as it was a perfect holiday!

A Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

La Bellène is quite possibly the most amazing house in what is probably one of the most beautiful locations in France.

Most holiday rental homes have everything you need, of course, but there is a certain similarity to them - a functionality that is sometimes at the expense of aesthetic. This is not the case with La Bellène. What you have here is a house with unique style with furniture from India and the Far East, the highest quality furnishings, and rooms that are finished to a design straight out of the pages of a magazine. In short, if you're after something different and appreciate originality, then this is definitely the place for you.

The atmosphere is one of calm serenity with two huge Buddahs framing a perfect swimming pool. It is a huge pool with a fully functioning pool house and kitchen, and at night when all the lights are on in the garden and around the pool, and the stars are shining above, it is simply delightful. Illuminated olive trees speckle the garden and a field of lavender sits just beyond the guest apartment, tempting you with its aromas and gorgeous colour.

I could go on and on, but I will end by simply thanking Jean-François for allowing us to be custodians of his magnificent house for a week, and to Nicolas for always being available to answer any questions and to help us when needed.

This was a very special time for us with family and friends in the South of France and we will be forever grateful for our experience at La Bellène.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Amazing and luxurious property - both traditional and modern

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property as a couple and had two other couples from our family over. The property is in the middle of olive trees in a very quiet area on a hilltop close to Gordes (3km), one of the most beautiful villages in France.

The property is simply amazing featuring everything for a getaway with family or friends. Everything is very modern and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped and we prepared great dinners there after our shopping on the market.

There are 3 bedrooms in the house, including a single bed in the library on the top floor next to the master bedroom. All of them are very comfortable.

The property manager is very professional and takes care of you during your stay. We once had a little problem and he would be responsive to every enquiry and show up if needed.

We absolutely loved the quiet and secluded property with its huge swimming pool and separate pool house that features a separate room for two guests. We did amazing cycling tours in the area and can highly recommend staying there if you are into road biking. This is paradise. We will certainly come back and appreciated our host's professionalism. Thank you very much for letting us stay in your property. We will certainly be back!

Heavenly setting, unique karma, a pure delight

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at la Bellene and our stay was pure bliss. The property is surrounded by beautiful olive groves and luscious lavender fields, within an enchanting environment. The view overlooking the luberon valley is simply unique. We enjoyed al fresco dining in the well equipped pool house. The sunsets were glorious following days of basking around the infinity pool. The elegant and refined main house provided the perfect environment for a peaceful and soothing rest. For a romantic stay or with friends, this property is absolutely fabulous !

Owner's Response: Carole et Nicolas, thank you so much for your comments about my property! It’s the first review of La Bellène on this website and it’s so important for future travellers to share your thoughts. The only thing I can do is to translate your opinons in french. I hope we will stay in touch, Jean-François. Carole et Nicolas, je vous remercie chaleureusement pour votre commentaire ! Il s’agit de la première appréciation de ma propriété sur ce site Internet et elle est évidemment très importante car elle permet aux futurs voyageurs de partager vos ressentis. Je n’ai pas de commentaire à faire, je me propose en revanche de traduire vos paroles en français. En espérant que nous restions en contact, Jean-François. « Nous avons passé 3 semaines à La Bellène et notre séjour fût un pur bonheur. La propriété est entourée d’oliviers et de champs de lavande dans un environnement enchanteur. La vue dégagée sur la vallée du Luberon est tout simplement unique. Nous avons apprécié les diners à la fraîche dans le pool-house bien équipé. Les couchers de soleil étaient fabuleux autour de la piscine à débordement. La maison principale, élégante et raffinée, a été l’environnement idéal pour un séjour de détente paisible et réparateur. Pour un séjour romantique ou entre amis, cette propriété est tout simplement fabuleuse !»

quel séjour de rêve!

  • 5 of 5

La BELLENE est un havre de paix! tout est parfait. La maison est très agréable et le coin piscine est idyllique! c'est du haut de gamme!

Nous reviendrons c'est certain car il s'agit là d'une des plus belles maisons de la région (en plus idéalement placée au milieu de "nulle part")

Séjour mémorable à la Bellene...avec un merci particulier pour l'accueil et le service de Nicolas (personne qui gère la maison et qui est aux petits soins auprès des locataires)

à très bientôt!
