About the property

Three-bedroom House With Pool And Views In South Luberon

THE LOCATION:

Our house, "LES GENETS", sits on the western edge of the medieval village of VAUGINES, nestled between the villages of LOURMARIN (5 kms or 3.1 miles) and CUCURON (3 kms or 1.8 miles).

The house is 150 square metres and sits on a 630 square metre south-facing lot in the upper western end of the village. The land directly to the south/southwest of the property is agricultural and undeveloped, which provides a lovely, unobstructed view.

Vaugines is situated on the southern side of the Luberon Regional Park and is an ideal base for exploring the many diverse regions that Provence has to offer. Being centrally located makes for easy day trips to Aix-en-Provence, St. Remy, Avignon, the Mediterranean, not to mention all of the wonderfully charming and unique villages of both the south and north Luberon, many of which are listed among France's 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France'. Vaugines is a tranquil environment to return home to after a day of touring and crowds. The house is less than a five-minute walk to the village square. There is an excellent gastronomic restaurant, a cafe/pizzeria, as well as a small epicerie that sells freshly baked breads, croissants and pastries.

The beautiful and chic Lourmarin is a five-minute drive from the house. It hosts a fabulous market every Friday morning that should not be missed. There is a very large selection of cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as numerous boutiques and art galleries.

Cucuron, at a two-minute drive, is a lively and scenic village with an Etang (very large stone pond) in the centre shaded by ancient plane trees. This is where their weekly market is held every Tuesday morning. There is a butcher, several bakeries, a small grocery store as well as several restaurants, including the Michelin starred La Petite Maison.

INTERIOR OF THE HOUSE:

The main living space is one large L-shape. The living-room with open fireplace, dining room with farmhouse-style dining table, and kitchen with stone countertops and island all lead out to the southern exposed terrace through four sets of French doors that let in the light and lend a feeling of openness to the space.

Our family loves to cook, so the kitchen is fully equipped with everything one needs to prepare a memorable meal. The stovetop has five gas burners, and the oven is extra large. The fridge is a large American style with ice machine.

There are three bedrooms, and the house comfortably sleeps seven (best suited for four adults and three children). The first bedroom has a king bed (180 cms), the second a large queen (160 cms), and the third a set of bunk beds as well as a third twin bed. Each bedroom is equipped with air-conditioning.

There is one bathroom with vanity, soaker tub, rainfall shower and WC between the two double bedrooms. A second bathroom with shower, vanity and WC can be found at the end of the hall outside of the bunk room. A third bathroom with vanity and WC is found off of the office/laundry room at the back of the house. The office/laundry room also houses a full-size washer and dryer.

EXTERIOR:

A large gravel terrace is accessible from the main living area, from which there are views of Mt. St. Victoire as well as stunning sunsets.

There is an outdoor dining set for eight situated under a pergola, a gas Weber BBQ, as well as an additional seating area for relaxing and socializing.

There is a lockable gate at the top of the terrace stairs that lead down to the garden and pool area. The pool is 10x5 metres (32.5x16.5 feet) and has a saltwater filtration system (gentle on the skin and hair) with an automatic rigid cover for extra security. There are pool loungers as well as games for the pool and grass area, such as badminton. The pool is open from June 1st through September 30th. An earlier opening is only possible if pre-arranged.

GENERAL:

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the house, village or region in general. Should you choose to rent our house, we have a local manager in place to handle all check-ins and check-outs, and who can also serve as your local go-to person should any problems arise during your stay.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had the most wonderful time at Amy’s beautiful home. It was clean and bright and had beautiful views. The kitchen is well equipped and has lovely large French doors like the rest of the home that look out onto these views. The bedrooms are pretty and comfortable with space for all your clothes. The master bath is large with tub and separate shower. The pool, patio, and outdoor seating are perfectly maintained and a relaxing place to spend your time when you are not traveling to the many adorable towns around the area. Amy is helpful and responsive. She provides you with ideas for restaurants and sight seeing - however being at the house was so enjoyable that you sometimes have to force yourself to leave it. We hope to return someday soon. It was one our favorite trips. Consider yourself lucky as we did to be able to stay in this lovely home.

Wonderful way to visit Provence

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean, extremely well-located and fully-equipped house (kitchen, internet, bbq, washer/drier, etc.) with great views and a pool. We loved that it was located in the small, quiet village of Vaugines (population 600); we felt that we became part of the town and came to know the owners of its 3 local shops and restaurants. We could relax here for the day, but also pretty much see all sites and towns in Provence within an hour's drive or less, including our favorite town, Lourmarin, 3 miles away. The owner and her on-site manager have prepared a great guide to their favorite stops and restaurants and were available whenever needed. If you are driving, bring a good GPS for the area -- lots of roundabouts. Overall, our highest recommendation for any VRBO we have ever visited. Unlike some previous houses, it is as advertised, if not better!

Perfectly Put Together

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in late May at this beautifully designed and thoughtfully appointed village house in Vaugines. Built into the side of a sloping street, once across the threshold the home opens to a lovely terrace with a 270 degree Provençal vista including Mount St. Victoire and the Luberon. Nicely decorated and carefully curated, this new as old reconstruction is perfectly equipped and organized for two couples plus a 'stray' or a family with young children. The sleek, modern kitchen really cooks. The gathering spaces lend themselves to intimate conversation. The pool surrounded by climbing roses is a bit of paradise. This home is nicely situated between the pretty towns of Lourmarin and Cucurron and close to host of prime markets, wineries and other local attractions. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a cozy, comfortable, modern take on a traditional Provençal mas.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this lovely home and could not have had a more enjoyable or relaxing holiday. The home is beautifully & tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and there are wonderful views from the terrace. The village is charming with a fantastic restaurant in the square as well as a pizzeria/cafe. We were well situated to explore the nearby villages and even took a day trip to Cassis and the Calanques. One week was definitely not enough so we very much hope a return trip will be in our future!

Wonderful property in beautiful Provence!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely house in a beautiful area! It is tastefully designed, cozy and comfortable, and we can't think of any amenities that were missing. Vaugines is centrally located to explore the region of Provence we were most interested in seeing, and the village itself was a gem with a fantastic restaurant across from the fountain in the small square. Both the owner and the onsite manager were very friendly and helpful, which was much appreciated. We highly recommend this property and hope to return again ourselves one day.

Brilliant house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting the Luberon region but our first trip to the 'south' side. We found the location to be an ideal base for exploring the surrounding villages and countryside. We had a great time discovering Vaugines, Lourmarin, Cucuron and Ansouis in particular, and spent a wonderful day in Cassis swimming in the Med.

The house itself surpassed our expectations. It is beautifully designed, so well equipped, and we felt at home immediately. Our favourite part of the day was unwinding on the terrace with a glass of wine to enjoy watching the sunsets, which were fabulous.

The owner was friendly and helpful, offering many suggestions for day trips which were greatly appreciated.

We would most certainly recommend this property to our friends and family, and would love to return again one day ourselves.
