Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

“La Cigale" is a spacious, luxurious country villa set in 7.5 acres of beautiful, natural parkland. Set within the Luberon Natural Park, it is ideally situated within walking distance (1 km) of the medieval village of Lacoste and its famous castle dating back to the XI century. La Cigale has been completely restored with quality materials, with the rooms spread over one level, and has French doors opening onto the terraces surrounding the villa. The stone floors keep the house cool in the summer, and from the terraces there are breath taking views over the Luberon. On arrival, the automatic wrought iron gates open into the natural parkland with 200 mature trees and a Cypress-lined driveway to the front of the house.

La Cigale is surrounded by a delightful, natural garden with south facing terrace, stone fountain, "borie", "boule" court, and a peaceful, secluded pool, representing a haven of peace for those who wish to unwind, paint, read or go for long walks through the unspoilt countryside. Take your evening aperitif on the sun terrace in the middle of the field of lavender, and enjoy dinner on the subtly lit terrace, by the "borie", or under the trees in the grounds.

The sunny, spacious living room has a natural stone fireplace separating it from the elegant dining room. Both the living room and dining room are tastefully furnished in a mixture of Provencal and contemporary styles, with original artworks adorning the walls. The entertainment system offers British television and own-music streaming via AirPlay. The dining room leads through to the library, with a selection of books, to a wrought iron spiral staircase that leads to a delightful mezzanine providing a quiet space for reading.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with Smeg appliances, including oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator and coffee maker. All work surfaces are in marble, including a centre island, and there is plenty of crockery, glassware and cutlery. The wooden table and chairs is ideal for breakfast in the cooler months.

The three elegant bedrooms each have Queen size beds, and all open onto the stone terrace. The master bedroom has extensive views over the Luberon, and has direct access to the main bathroom, offering antique roll top bath and twin washbasins. The second bedroom opens onto the garden, and has direct access to a second bathroom boasting an in-ground Italian shower. The third bedroom provides direct access to the beautiful pool area. All bedrooms have Provencal style wardrobes and dressers, bedside tables and lamps, whilst the pool bedroom has a beautiful 18th century antique sofa.

A small study provides the facilities for work if needed, while the house is fully equipped with a high speed wireless network (for own laptop connection).

The villa is perfectly located to explore the many attractions of this spectacular region, including other hilltop villages within the Luberon Natural Park such as Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes and Roussillon, and towns such as Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Arles, and St. Remy de Provence, as well as the famous weekly antiques market at L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Further afield, the city of Marseille is within easy reach, as are the Camargue and the beaches of the Cote d'Azur. The region boasts excellent wine cellars, with the vineyards of the Luberon, Cotes du Ventoux, and Chateauneuf du Pape also within easy reach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Beverly,



Thank you for letting us stay at La Cigale- we had the best time and now fondly remembering all of our visits to gorgeous towns and lazing by the pool in the afternoons.



We ended up going back to Isle Sur La Sorgue and having a fabulous time exploring the town, markets, and did a great canoe trip from Fountaine Des Vaucluse. We did a day trip (on the autobarn!) to a crazy crocodile farm, north of Avignon and then stayed in a lovely place just outside of Avignon. We spent a day exploring Avignon, shopping and beautiful lunch- the girls tried escargots for first time.



Once I get organised I will send some photos- we took so many.



Best wishes



Clare, Chloe and Fleur

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three who enjoyed this lovely house for the first three weeks of August. We wanted for nothing! Everything we needed was available. The house is tastefully furnished, and was very well taken care of by Patricia. Beverly is friendly and helpful. We are quite familiar with the Luberon and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet and peaceful the property is. There are several possibilities on the property for enjoying all times of the day outside, whether you prefer sun or shade. A very relaxing place to be.

Amazing stay at La Cigale!

  • 5 of 5

I changed my honeymoon itinerary just so I could stay at La Cigale... and it was so worth it! The house is stunning, with beautiful furnishings. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding areas, but the house itself is so gorgeous you might not want to leave! The garden is amazing with plenty of activities. It was a little too cool for us to swim, but the pool was clean and very tempting. I would definitely recommend La Cigale to couples wanting a romantic escape, or families looking for a perfect holiday home in Provence!

La Cigale exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our three kids stayed here for the first week of July 2011. It was our first time in this part of the world and we were flyiing by the seat of our pants when we booked. Things couldn't have worked out better. Beverly's communication was fantastic and she made us feel great about the holiday. The home is so nice that we drove by it twice marveling at it nad not realizing that it was our rental! Lacoste turned out to be our favorite town ( followed closely by Bonnieux). Sadly the week ended way too quickly. Stay here: you won't regret it. As an aside we took the TGV down from Paris to Avignon where we had rented a car from Avis for the week. We then flew home from Marseilles which all turned out to be a great way to do things.

La Cigale Villa

  • 5 of 5

Dear Beverly,

We thoroughly enjoyed our days at the villa; it is a wonderful place.

The pride of ownership from the owners was evident as we found everything necessary to make this a great time and tried to leave it as we found it.

We loved Provence and the villa is a great location for seeing many of the surrounding villages and attractions. We had great meals with local produce from the many markets.

Thanks again for your hospitality and especially for making the process so simple.
