About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath triplex with courtyard and terrace

This is the smaller of two apts we own in a 16th century townhouse. On a quiet cul-de-sac, the apt is private yet within walking distance of a boulangerie, a small grocery, and three fine restaurants. You can have breakfast in your shaded private courtyard, then climb a sprial staircase for evening drinks on your rooftop terrace with views of Mt. Ventoux. Venasque, known for its cherry orchards, is a perched village surrounded by ancient, Saracen walls. Each morning, we go around the corner for our morning croissants and then follow one of 10 hiking trails from the village through glorious countryside. Kubikle has a kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms (Queen, two singles), living room, one bath, and courtyard dining. The apt is decorated in Provencal style and has comfortable beds.

About Julie Michaels Spence

My husband, Padraic, an ardent cyclist first visited Venasque when he came to follow the Tour de France with his sons. Once we discovered this gem of a village, we came back often, finally buying our home in 1993. We love the around-the-corner boulangerie, the hiking trails, the markets, the morning light, and all things Provencal.

Why Julie Michaels Spence chose

The most beautiful village in Provence. Private, quiet, an easy drive to the vineyards of the Rhone Valley, Avignon, and surrounding hilltowns. We love being in the village with access to a good croissant and three lovely restaurants.

What makes this townhome unique

A glass of wine on our rooftop terrace overlooking Mt. Ventoux. Heaven.

Views, Romantic Walks, and Wonderful Meals

  • 5 of 5

When we first saw Venasque from the road, it took our breath away. A true, "perched" village, it clung to a cliff with Mt. Ventoux in the distance. The winding road up to Chez Kubik, at the heart of the village, was a corkscrew of turns. Entering this charming townhouse, with its Provencal style, comfortable furnishings, and fully stocked kitchen, we were again delighted. We breakfasted each morning in the courtyard garden, watched the sunset from the rooftop terrace, and dined happily at Les Remparts, the local restaurant. Did I mention the croissants from the round-the-corner bakery? Venasque is the perfect hub for exploring Provence, with wonderful towns and villages, walks, and markets within easy reach. If you want the complete Provencal experience, it's here for you to enjoy.

Romantic retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this charming apartment for 3 perfect days! Chez Kubik is rustic, comfortable, and tres provencal!Our

host, Julie, pointed us in all the right directions and we had delicious meals, beautiful walks, and lots of great wine. My favorite outing was to the market in nearby Gourde, I've never had such a good time spending money!

We look forward to returning soon!

Charm, charm, charm

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in both Chez Kubik dwellings, and both lived up to our (romantic) expectations of living the authentic Provençal life for a couple of heavenly weeks. The house is charmingly and very comfortably furnished, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. Fabulous views and a pretty courtyard that invites late-afternoon wine-sipping. Venasque with its medieval walls (and no traffic!) is the quintessential historic French village, not big enough to get lost in, compact enough to explore every corner of. You should rent a car; there's an outdoor market within driving distance most days of the week, and it's close to the antique markets of Ile sur la Sorgue. Gourmet dining everywhere we tried.

Venasque is a 16th century, walled village perched high in Vaucluse hills with an historic baptistry, probably going back to the Romans. It has two main streets; ours is a cul-de-sac, and views from every corner. Charming.
