Why Marion TIPHAINE chose Roussillon
The village of Roussillon is one of the most beautiful of France and the second most visited in the Luberon after the village of Gordes. With its festival of ochre colors and hill-top position, it is one of Provence’s jewels. It is hard to depict the true splendor of Roussillon. 17 shades of ochre paint the village’s houses. Imagine the amazing contrast with the green pines, blue sky and red cliffs… Roussillon, with its history, vineyards and unique location, is the French savoir-vivre at its best. In the region of Provence, between the mountains of the Luberon and the Vaucluse, Roussillon sparkles with ochred light. Discover this unique mineral treasure of surprising blazing colors, right in the heart of the world’s most important ochre deposit.

This was our second visit to Villa Rouge. We shared the house with two couples who enjoyed it as much as we did.
Plenty of space for privacy as well as shared space to gather and have fun.
Loved the location close to restaurants and everything that the village has to offer. Hope to return one day
So sweet ;-) Glad your friends enjoyed it too !
Exceptional villa, location and host for a true Provençal experience
Lovely historic villa updated in all the right places. Charming, well suited for our 3 couples. Beautiful views, patio, pool made our alfresco dining a highlight. Kitchen well stocked w basic ingredients and cooking equipment. Beds and linens top notch. Well appointed furnishings. Plenty of space to stretch out, read, even do yoga on the covered pool deck- what a glorious way to begin a day!
Villa Rouge is ideally located in Roussillon. Stunning views, convenient to shops, cafes, bakery, butcher,etc. This is the most authentic hilltop village as folks still live here. Tourists arrive after 10 and leave by 4/5pm so plenty of time to enjoy the charm and quiet beauty of the village .
Excellent boulangerie (esp their pastries and pizza), Chez David is 4* and Cafe Couleurs tasty and well priced.
Easy access to other Luberon villages and their markets . Roussillon market on Thursday is great.
Marion is the best hostess: timely & thoughtful replies, suggestions, willing to make everything perfect for our family holiday.
I strongly recommend Villa Rouge for couples or families looking for an authentic, convenient and lovely, comfortable holiday in a charming, beautiful home of Provence. Our family would gladly return!
I’m blushing ! Thank you for your kind words ! I thought about adding a coffee table on the patio but now you made me think to keep that layout the way it is for yoga practice indeed ! I will add yoga mats in the house . Love yoga ;-))
Wonderful big villa in central location.
Very well equipped kitchen and comfortable amazing large rooms tastefully furnished with an amazing view from many aspects - terrace and dip pool very welcome on hot days
Nice stay; Good location
We spent a week in Roussillon. This location is well located in the village, easy access to restaurants, cafes, etc. Good setup. Enjoyed our stay.
Glad you enjoyed your stay !
We were a group of two couples who absolutely loved staying at this wonderful house & visiting the beautifully exquisite town of Roussillon! The house has gorgeous views, comfortable furnishings, & a well-stocked kitchen. We especially loved the location of the house... just steps away from the village & its shops, bakeries, markets & restaurants. The ochre mountains that surround the village are breathtaking to see & shouldn't be missed. Overall, a piece of paradise we'd highly recommend!!!
That’s very sweet of you and I thank you for your kind words. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us !
We recommend Villa Rouge
The property managers were extremely helpful and nice.
