Property description

Welcome to L’Etoile, an 18th century, provencal stone country holiday home situated between Roussillon and Gordes – two of the most beautiful villages in Provence!

Located in a small hamlet, L’Etoile means: “The Star” – and you’ll see why at night when thousands of stars blanket the night sky!

L'Eotile sits on over an acre of land with stunning views of the surrounding Luberon valley and the hill top village of Roussillon.

The property is very well positioned, facing south overlooking the valley, olive groves, orchards and vineyards and just a short drive to all of the famous hilltop villages of Provence.

The three story house has been recently renovated by one of the best renovation masters in Provence. It’s perfect for up to 8 people and a great setup for two families.

One of the best features of the house is the large pool and summer kitchen, with gorgeous views of the gardens, the olive groves, vineyards and the village of Roussillon.

Here’s what’s included.

Ground Floor:

- Front Terrace – Just off the main entrance, the front terrace is perfect for morning coffee and croissant, afternoon tea or to savor some of the great, local wine

- Cozy Salon – A relaxed room with a stone fireplace and an old, beamed ceiling, complete with CD player/stereo and portable (battery charged) Bose iPod docking station to enjoy inside the house or down by the pool.

- Intimate Dining Room – Perfect for dining in with an antique table that seats up to 8 people and has a view to the stone fireplace in the salon

- Provencal Kitchen – Fully stocked and recently renovated kitchen with vaulted ceiling, perfect for cooking great Provencal meals with fresh ingredients from the local markets

- Laundry Room – Outfitted with brand new, full-size washer and dryer

- Powder Room – Just between the kitchen and laundry room

1st Floor:

- Master Bedroom – A very large master bedroom with king size bed, beautiful old, wood beamed ceiling and a large sitting room with game table, a desk, plenty of seating and spectacular views across the property and the village of Roussillon

- 2nd Bedroom – Includes two twin sized (single) beds, full of light and with the same spectacular views as the master bedroom

- Full Bath – Newly renovated, Provencal style bath with full-sized bathtub with shower

2nd Floor:

- Large Bedroom – A large, top-floor bedroom with a king size bed, wood beamed ceiling and a fantastic view across the entire property and the village of Roussillon

- 4th Bedroom – Also includes two twin sized (single) beds, beautiful wood beamed ceiling and the same great views

- Full Bath – Newly renovated, Provencal style bath with full-sized bathtub with shower

Summer Kitchen and Pool:

One of the best parts of L’Etoile, there is an additional stone house that serves as the pool house and summer kitchen. The cozy kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, dishwasher and all the cookware and dinnerware to serve a party of 10.

There is an open fireplace for cooking and a two burner gas stove. There is also a half bath inside the building and a private outdoor shower area with hot and cold water that you will love to use.

The beautiful building opens fully on to the large pool and gardens in the summer. The gardens are very secluded and are full of lavender bushes, roses, herbs, fruit trees, and seasonal blooming varieties which are all surrounded by a grove of olive trees that create a wonderful afternoon shade and privacy.

There are plenty of places to lounge by the pool or read and nap in the shade of the trees. At night, the sky is completely taken over by the constellations. It is amazing to view the nighttime sky in such a beautiful natural setting. We frequently marvel at the many shooting stars!

In the summertime you can cook and enjoy your meals in the summer kitchen by the pool. When the nights are cooler, light the fireplace and enjoy your meals inside by the fire.

The weekly rental price includes 3 hours of house cleaning per week. Also, free Wi-Fi and free calls to France and the US are included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love Provence and we love this old country house. It's the perfect place for our vacations with our friends and families. It's perfectly situated between Roussillon and Gordes so we have the best of both worlds. We can easily access village life and markets within minutes and then easily return to the peace and quiet of the Luberon countryside. We have 3 children of our own - they love L'Eotile - so the house is perfect for kids of all ages.

Why the Owner Chose Roussillon:
We love this area. It's home to us and our children. We have been vacationing in this area of Provence for about 14 years. For us, this is the perfect location between Gordes & Roussillon, two of the most beautiful hilltop villages in Provence. We're close enough to the town to get our daily baguette and croissants. But we're far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country side, hear the birds sing and see thousands of stars at night. Plus, we are a short drive from many of the things we love: antique shopping at L'isle sur la Sorgue, spending a day in Lourmarin or Avignon, or a short drive to the French Riviera. But mostly, we love the people here. Everyone here is so nice and helpful.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
In the summertime, we love spending the day outside by the pool. The pool is surrounded by a nice olive grove and some lavender and roses and the kids love it (so do the adults!). We have a pool house with a fully stocked kitchen, a large fireplace and plenty of seating. So, most days, we have lunch and dinner out by the pool. And, because it's a fully outfitted kitchen, we don't have to haul food, cookware and dishes back and forth to the main house. Everything is right there in the Summer Kitchen. In the cooler months, we have dinner inside across from a big, roaring fire. It's very cozy and quiet in the winter months. Perfect place to unwind. During the day, we usually go to one of the many, famous Provencal markets in the surrounding towns - all about 10-15 minutes away. There are plenty of places to shop and buy antiques. There are about a dozen or so vineyards within 10 km from the house, and about 2-3 just down the road. There's no shortage of hiking trails and national parks. In fact, there's a great hiking trail right behind our house that leads up to the top of the hill overlooking Lioux and the great big stone wall. It's breathtaking to see that view from the top of the mountain and only about a 10 minute hike.
