About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Oaks and Olives is a lovely family home in beautiful, undisturbed surroundings, yet within easy reach of the local villages of Oppede le Vieux, Coustellet and Menerbes.

Our family home away from home consists of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom, with king bed, has a large ensuite with walk-in shower and footed tub. This bedroom/ bathroom is suitable for handicapped access. French doors open onto it's own small terrace.

The second large bedroom also has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower.

There are two more bedrooms that share the third bathroom. One has a queen bed and the other has two twins that can be pushed together or left separate.

The great room is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine, read a book or enjoy the views across the valley. The dining room can be set for eight people to enjoy the special treats that come out of the fully stocked kitchen. The openness of the room allows beautiful morning light lasting right into sunset views. Off this great room is another set of French doors which leads out to the covered terrace. Beyond the terrace lies the covered outdoor dining area with BBQ, security-gated pool and garden with olives trees, lavender, wild thyme, and rosemary.

Coustellet is 10 minutes away. It has the regions most successful market on Sundays and the best bakery around (right behind the supermarket). Not to be missed is the new pastry and tea shop that rivals some of the best in Paris. The town has everything required from a pharmacy (with a pharmacist that speaks English) and groceries to the lavender museum.

We are ideally situated in the middle of the Luberon with easy access to all of the fabulous hillside villages; for example, Gordes, Rousillon, Bonnieux and Lourmarin. There are endless opportunities to try new wines and local delicacies, while experiencing the daily wonders of Provence.

Whether you choose to spend your days relaxing in the sun or filling every moment with typical French experiences and markets, we know you will thoroughly enjoy your stay.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: Karl and Moira are a forever France-loving couple. They traveled to the area many times before realizing their dream of buying a home there for their family to enjoy together and escape the chaos of Vancouver life. Karl is an architect of custom homes and therefore couldn't wait to get his hands on this personal project.

Why Oppède, France:
The Luberon has long held a fascination due to the cherries in the Spring, lavender in the Summer, and olive crush in the Fall. Between the hillside villages, fabulous markets, and wonderful wines, there is an endless assortment of things to enjoy in this area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Oaks and Olives radiates the feel of provencal country living, while it's design considers the wants and needs of North American lifestyle. The floor plan is thoughtfully laid out giving the house a very luxurious feel.
