Exterior

The house is located just 50m from the market square, a third of a way up into the village of Roussillon on a side street. Guests have a free card for parking in the main village car park and have to pay to park in car park next to house to unload luggage.

The living room opens onto a large terrace ideal for outdoor meals (table for 8) which leads up to a smaller upper terrace (table for 6) which commands beautiful panoramic views across the ochre hills. The swimming pool is at the same level as the upper terrace overlooking the lower terrace; it has a ledge on one side approximately 1.5m from the edge and underwater lighting. It is heated up to 24°C free of charge, weather permitting. There is space for two loungers on two sides of the pool.

There are many steps outside so care must be taken with small children and elderly persons.

The attractive front door opens into the spacious and very attractively furnished living room which in turn opens onto a large terrace to one side and a dining room/kitchen to the other, also with a terrace. The interior is very personalised and has a warm atmosphere. Upstairs are a large double bedroom (150cm bed - overlooking the terrace and pool) with an en suite bathroom with a wc (wonderful views from the bath), two twin bedrooms (the larger one (90cm beds) looks over the street and smaller one (75cm beds) has views of the countryside), a shower room and a separate wc.

The Luberon Mountains in central Provence are an area of charming hilltop villages, especially along the verdant northern slopes overlooking colourful plains of olive groves, cherry orchards, and pastureland. Roussillon, built in the local ochre stone, commands views as far as Mont Ventoux. Ménerbes has a colourful history and was home to Picasso and de Stael. Gordes is an exceptional village arranged in tiers around the Renaissance château at its summit. The dramatic site occupied by Oppède-le-Vieux lay abandoned for years; the village has come back to life but still retains a haunting sense of vanished past.

    Wine

    The Côtes du Luberon appellation covers 3500 hectares. It is situated between Cavaillon and Apt, with 36 districts sharing the vineyards. Eighty per cent of the wine producing land is grouped into co-operative wineries (caves co-operatives). Comprising 70% reds, 15 % to 20 % rosés or whites depending on the year, the Côtes du Luberon wine is appreciated for its delicate bouquet. The reds are well-balanced and flexible, the rosés fresh and nervous, while the whites are fresh and well-rounded. It is generally better to drink the Côtes du Luberon wines when they are young.

    Also discover the Côtes du Ventoux, Côtes de Provence and Côteaux d’Aix. There are many good local wines on sale at local markets (in particular at the marché paysan of Coustellet).

Excellent village location. Spacious accommodation. Good external terrace.

Smart, comfortable house in friendly village, easy walking distance from the shops.

Excellent location in the centre of the village with beautiful views. Outside area not really suitable for toddlers as terraces not fenced off.
