About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Here, high up in the Luberon, facing south across a private valley, it is easy to imagine yourself a thousand kilometers away from civilization. You hear birdsong, and the rustle of cigadas. But there is no traffic, and very little sound or sight of modern life. You can see one other house in the distance, an old stone farm. Otherwise, it is the same magnificent view it has been for thousands of years: mountains and sky.

For those who like walking, riding, swimming and peace, it would be difficult to find a more secluded spot than La Baume Victoire. And yet it is ten minutes from Bonnieux, one of the prettiest village in the Luberon, less than an hour from Aix-en-Provence, just over an hour to the international airport at Marseille. The weekly markets of Apt and Lourmarin are within an easy drive; so are a dozen good restaurants.

Inside the house, you will find the thick stone walls, tiled floors and exposed beams of traditional Provencal architecture, but with the untraditional benefits of central heating! The vast main room has a full-equipped modern kitchen at one end and a wood-burning fireplace at the other. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a Summer House by the pool ( open for free from June 1st to september 30th, or on request with additional price ) with two beds and a large sitting room. Because of its position, the house is flooded with light from dawn to sunset.

The terrace is large enough to accommodate a lunch party and a full-scale boules game at the same time. The pool is fifty meters from the house. The sun shines three hundred days a year! Bonnes vacances!

About Bernard ROUSSEL

After 15 years in Paris we decided to change our life and come in Provence to enjoy this marvelous area , farming lavender and truffle oak trees . Then we restored houses to offer them for renting.

Bernard ROUSSEL purchased this house in 1989

Why Bernard ROUSSEL chose Buoux

Provence is a safe and a sunny area.

OMG, this was a wonderful place in Provence. Close to everything, the owner is so friendly and helpful. My family (Son, Dgtr and their families) took me there to celebrate my 70th birthday and all I can think is I want to go back. The house is comfortable and the views fantastic. The children ages 1 to 11 loved the pool, eating on the terrace and the older girls sleep overs in the pool house. If you want a memorable vacation and just want to relax and enjoy the wine, cheese and bread you could not pick a better place as your home base. Hope to go back and celebrate another birthday in a few years.

Again and again

  • 5 of 5

After our first experience at Cote Sud, we stayed 2 weeks at la Baume Victoire.

Once again we had a lovely time! Coming back to Buoux was a delight. There is few places like that where you feel going back "home".

Same as Cote Sud, the house is tastefuly decorated and fully equipped.(it's bigger though)

A big thanks to Bernard and Mathilde for their warm welcome :)

See you again next year!!

Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

This place is a treasure - we only stayed a week, but could have stayed much longer. Went late in September early October, no crowds and spectacular clear weather. ( even if a little cool for swimming!) It is just as good as it looks in the photos if not better and Bernard and Mathilde could not be more charming and helpful. Spotlessly clean, Also nice that things like tea, coffee and sugar are available on arrival. AHHH Provence!

Entspannung pur

Sehr schön und ruhig gelegenes Haus, Aufenhaltsbereich innen wie außen sehr großzügig, Zimmer teilweise sehr unterscheidlich, Küchenausstattung läßt keine Wünsche offen. Vermieter sehr angenehm. Wir waren mit 8 erwachsenen Personen und zwei Hunden für eine Woche im Haus. Wir haben den Aufenthalt alle sehr genossen.

Beautiful house in an amazing area with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great time at Bernard's lovely house. You can start impressing hiking tours directly from the terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and we had a lot of fun with cooking. Bernard and his wife are very friendly and gave us good recommendations for hiking, eating and buying things. Enjoying the pool with the view is just perfect.
