The space

The property:
The house is located within a ten minutes walk from the center of the village of Viens. The property is set on the hillside in an attractive and well cared for estate with superb views over the Luberon valley towards the Vaucluse hills.
The garden in front of the house are is planted with olive trees, lavender and other colorful flowers, a typical "provencal" landscape that you can enjoy sunbathing by the swimming pool. The upper levels of the property, dotted with oak trees provides shade during the heat of the day and leads to hidden paths for walks on the hill.
The two story house is tiled with terra cotta floors that provide a warm welcome. The living and dining rooms as well as the master bedroom (queen size bed) have French doors leading to a terrace with superb views to the hills beyond, a lovely place for a sunshine breakfast or a dinner under the stars. The kitchen is equipped with fridge/freezer, oven/stove, and dishwasher. A washing machine is also available. A hall leads to the staircase and to the upper part of the house. Upstairs are the bathroom, two bedrooms (one with two single beds and the other with a queen size bed) and a guest/office room (with a single bed).
The house is fully furnished, just come and make yourself at home. You can find everything you need in the village (delicious little cafe/restaurant; pizzeria; bakery shop; grocery store; the best honey producer) and the charming city of Apt is only 8 miles away (with a splendid farmers market every saturday).

The area:
The village of Viens is located 12 km east of Apt by the N100 (direction Forcalquier) for 4 km, then the D209 on the left.
It is situated on the border of the Alpes de Haute Provence in the heart of “Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon”. It is at the far end of the "route de l'ocre", famous for the Colorado provencal" cliffs
Surrounded by magnificent countryside and perched on a rocky outcrop for more than a millennium, Viens is an ancient village with a medieval atmosphere. While visiting Viens, you will come across plenty of evidence of its dramatic past, 13th century and a Renaissance chateau, restored in the 14th century. Beautiful walks can be taken around the village where the natural environment is truly superb... you will love it!

Nice & spacious traditional Provencal house in a quiet location yet close to village of Viens (ca 1-1,5km) where you can find daily groceries & nice restaurant. Very well equipped. Beautifully maintained garden. Large pool - perfect water temp (26-28°). Ample space to house more than 4 people (4 bedrooms), but capacity limited to 4 people due to the fact that there is only 1 bathroom (-> offering nice experience is preferred over maximizing revenue!) Very nice & friendly owners who do everything to make you feel welcome & at home: from appetizers upon arrival over a very extensive "tour of the house" to being available for any questions or help during our stay. Definitely a place we would recommend to family & friends!

We spent 1 month long vacations (2 families with kids 8 y.o.) and enjoyed every single moment of our stay in that hospitable house. Everything was perfect. The location is a quiet place in the mountain only 14 km away to the Apt town and 500 m next to Viens village, where you can buy hand-made cheese, croissants and fresh vegetables as well as enjoy Saturday evenings with local people. The house is fully equipped with all needed equipment (we could even cook birthday cake), very clean and comfortable. Once arrived to the house we’ve been met by Ivanne’s parents Pierrick and Danielle: very friendly intelligent people who secured to us very warm welcome and provided any help and support during the whole stay. The garden is wonderful and the pool is chic: wide and long enough to do some water exercises in order not to get extra weight due to seductive French cuisine. Little Anna is already planning her next visit to this place.

Quel bon souvenir nous garderons de ce séjour de 15 jours passés dans cette maison très agréable, confortable et soignée! Le jardin est charmant, et les bois qui l'entourent offrent de belles promenades au calme et à l'ombre... Les propriétaires sont d'une rare gentillesse. Ils nous ont réservé un très bel accueil, donné pleins de bons conseils sur les alentours, et sont disponibles si besoin. La région est magnifique avec ses jolis villages anciens, sa riche végétation, et tous les bons produits qui la caractérisent. Que du bonheur! Florence et Christophe
