Menerbes house description

The Fountain View House is located in the heart of Provence, in the “perched” or hilltop village of Menerbes. This village, which Peter Mayle wrote about in “A Year in Provence,” is an exceptionally authentic village in the heart of the Luberon with its hills, vineyards, fruit trees and lavender fields.

The Fountain View House layout permits a couple, small family or group to enjoy renting a house in the heart of one of Provence’s most beautiful villages without having to take on a large 3-5 bedroom farm house which is so common in the area. Many families or two couples traveling together, however, choose to take the entire joined house so they may fully enjoy village life.

The Fountain View House is composed of two stories, ancient Provencal stone. Parts of the house date back at least 500 years if not more, but it has been lovingly renovated and modernized. One of the village’s ancient bee-hive shaped ovens is incorporated in the building, though it's not available for visits.


Conveniently located near: The central location of Menerbes allows easy exploration of Provence by car, bicycle, foot or even horseback.

Aix-en-Provence is less than an hour away, as is Marseilles airport.

Avignon, the Palace of the Popes, and the TGV station are less than 40 minutes away.

St. Remy-de-Provence is about 30 minutes away.

Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the center of antique wheeling and dealing, is only fifteen minutes away.

Services include: Weekly cleaning,

All linens,

Telephone service,

Wireless high-speed Internet access,

Hair dryer in bathroom,

Iron and ironing board,

Parking available,

A welcome pack of groceries may be arranged in advance (highly suggested given the variable opening times of French groceries) so that you can enjoy your trip to Provence from the very start.

This commercial life allows you to enjoy the rhythm and delights of French village life. The Fountain View House adjoins the High View House via a stairway and the two houses can be rented together for a larger group or for two couples who want to share a memorable trip to Provence. ...moreless
