This 3-bedroom house is situated on a hilltop on the border between the departments of the Vaucluse and Alpes de Haute Provence in the protected Luberon National Park. It has a large swimming pool, surrounded by terraced gardens below the house, and commanding views of neighbouring farms and vineyards. Amid 30 acres of pine forest, groves of black truffle-producing oak trees, fields and vegetation of the Luberon, the house is private and tranquil.
The perched village of Pierrevert, which hosts the only 18-hole golf course within the Luberon's borders, lies 5 kilometres east of the property, and La Bastide des Jourdans is the same distance to the west. The balcony of the house offers spectacular star-gazing and views of distant Mont Sainte-Victoire, made familiar in the 19th and 20th century paintings of Cézanne, whose hometown of Aix-en-Provence is just 30 minutes away. The nearest substantial town is Manosque, gateway to the Gorges du Verdon, 15 minutes away.
We spent a fabulous week here in July 2016. The house is perfectly situated - complete privacy and yet only a short drive to the village of Pierrevert and town of Manosque.
The house is well equipped with everything you could need on holiday, even down to shopping bags should you forget to pack your own. You really do feel like you are staying at a friend's house rather than a rental property.
The pool is perfectly situated and many an hour during the week was spent either in it or lounging by it with a glass of chilled local wine.
Daisy (our Labrador) had a fantastic time wandering round the extensive grounds and surveying her domain from the balcony. We really appreciated the owners' pet-friendly attitude.
Richard, who looks after things whilst you are there, was extremely welcoming and always on call if you needed anything (not that we did).
Thanks to Jack and Terry for sharing their piece of paradise with us and we look forward to returning soon.

Spent a lovely fortnight here in July 2015. While the highlight for us was the pool, our children loved exploring the surrounding estate and the local wildlife. The house was well equipped, clean and the attention to French-farmhouse-style detail is impressive. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the valley was always a great way to start the day. And although in a wonderfully peaceful location (dark skies at night make for excellent stargazing), we found civilisation and good cuisine within easy reach - Pierrevert having a lovely cafe/restaurant to spend a lazy lunch and an excellent vigneron (the Cuvée de Saint Patrice is amazing value!), not to mention two Domaines within walking distance. It's also well worth the hour drive to the Lac de Saint Croix and Gorge du Verdon. Jack was always prompt in answering my various questions. Many thanks.
This wonderful house is the perfect place to stay to get away from it all. The location is private and peaceful with fabulous views. The swimming pool is just right for lazy days. The french Manager could not be more helpful and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The house is well equipped with modern appliances and cosy bedrooms.
There are lots of nice villages to visit and other activites to do not far from the house.
This is a gem of place and we will certainly be visiting again.

The house was all that was advertised. While a little difficult to find, when you do you will be most happy with every aspect. If pools are your thing then this is spectacular. If like me cooking is your thing then the kitchen is incredibly well equipped and you will have no problems at all. Terry is very helpful and his nearby manager was very welcoming on arrival but be warned he speaks French only.
Realistically however you will need a car for this property unless you plan to spend the whole time there.
I have no hesitation in recommending this property for rental.
Nous avons y avons passé une semaine très agréable l'année dernière mon mari et moi et nos deux chats. Le propriétaire est très gentil et très patient malgré toutes les questions que je lui ai posées. L'accueil est très sympathique. La maison est propre. Tout était bien sauf la literie qui nous a empêché de bien dormir. À part cela, qui a dû être corrigé cette année, je recommande cette location.
Wir haben 3 wunderschöne Wochen bei herrlichem Wetter in einer sehr angenehmen und ruhigen Umgebung verbracht. Das Haus liegt ruhig im Wald etwas abseits von der Straße und ist nur über einen Schotterweg zu erreichen. Alles im Haus war sehr sauber, die Ausstattung ist gut und vollständig. Der Salzwasserpool ist absolut toll, sauber und gepflegt. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir sehr freundlich von dem Verwalter empfangen. Alles in Allem: Empfehlenswert !
Our house is just across the Vaucluse border in Alpes de Hautes provence in protected land of the Luberon National Park. The nearest villages include Pierrevert, La Bastides des Jourdans, La Tour d'Aigues, Pertuis, Ansouis, Cucuron, Bonieux and Gordes straddling the mountains of the Luberon. Aix-en-Provence is about 30-minutes from the house.
The house is located off a road which is a popular bicycling route, and the Luberon's only 18-hole golf course is about 5 minutes away.
Located just below the house, the pool is absolutely stunning, and yours alone to enjoy. It is very private, fenced and surrounded by gardens. It gets buckets of Provencal sunlight.
Other attractions in the region include the St. Michel Observatory and the Gorges du Verdon, where there is great canoing or paddle boating. There are hiking trails in the area and you are free to explore our 30 acres of land that includes forest and fields surrounding the house. There's horseback riding nearby, karting in the town of Manosque and tennis in the nearest town of Pierrevert.
Other Activities: Cycling and hiking, wine-tasting. In the winter, we can arrange to help you find truffles in the groves of oaks on our property.
Golf: Golf du Luberon, 18 holes, 3 km from the house in a beautiful setting of pines.
Ski: Serre Chevalier/Pra Loup -- Two hour drive. Usually great skiing and affordable.
