About Stella Canivenc

Over ten years ago, we discovered Cucuron. We were immediately charmed by the village and its atmosphere: lots of history, a lively village in exceptional surroundings and friendly authentic inhabitants.

In 2010, after a long search, we found the perfect home in Cucuron and for over 2 years we have enjoyed living in Les Galets. We have since then moved away for professional reasons but we have kept Les Galets as a vacation home.

Stella Canivenc purchased this house in 2010

Why Stella Canivenc chose Cucuron

In 2010, when we found what was at that time a ruin and we fell in love again with Cucuron.

We felt that this house was typical of Cucuron : from the past, as the house dates back from the 17th, but very much alive and in the present. After 3 years of heavy refurbishing works, we are proud to offer our guests a high quality vacation rental.

This is our fourth season renting out Les Galets as a vacation rental and we are continuously upgrading & investing in the property so that our guests continue to have the best experience, so don’t missed out, come and enjoy short term rental in the great settings of Luberon in Provence!

What makes this house unique

Unblocked views, the terrace and inside the village, a great spot.

Terrific Home in a Post Card Location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were beautiful and had all the amenities we needed to make our stay very comfortable. The communications with the property manager and the owner was outstanding. Stella even got us a dinner reservation for the one star Michelin restaurant in Cucuron. Stella also provided us with a welcome package of wine, olive oil and pear juice. This is a very modern accommodation, great for relaxing and enjoying the surrounding area. We would highly recommend Les Galets to anyone staying in the Provence area.

The right place to experience the authentic Provence

  • 5 of 5

I was at “Les Galetes” for one week in July with friends. It is a large, typical and beautiful stone building on three different levels, but inside full and modern equipped and with a spacious and comfortable terrace where you can have breakfast, dinner and relax. The house is in Cucuron, which is a beautiful and genuine village of the Luberon, not as touristic as others more famous villages in the region (e. g. Gordes or Roussillon) and so you can experience and enjoy the real life of a Provencal village. It is the ideal starting point to visit and explore (by car) the stunning region with its cities, villages and landscapes. We didn’t eat out at restaurants because we wanted to exploit and enjoy our kitchen and terrace, but at night after dinner we really appreciated tasting a “Pastis” in the central square of the village (l’Etang). Not far from the village there is al little lake with beach (Etang de la Bonde) where you can swim and relax after travelling throughout the region. Stella, the house-owner, was very friendly and professional and gave us all details and information about the house and the village. I highly recommend “Les Galetes” to people who like unconventional and authentic holidays.

Beautiful, modern home in medieval village - a quintessential Provence experience

  • 5 of 5

Anyone wishing to experience the Luberon area and Provence as the locals do, cannot do any better than this beautiful home in Cuceron.

The village is ancient and seems right out of a movie set. This is not a touristy destination at all, so if you stay here you are staying with locals.

The home itself is magnificant. From the outside it is a large stone building, set on a perch above a small road, dating back hundreds of years. The inside, however is ultra-modern. This includes a state-of-the-art kitchen, phenomenal Zen-like bathrooms with fantastic showers, a large HDTV with full cable/satellite, beautiful decorations, comfy beds, and a great patio with couches and gas grill.

Also, it is spotlessly clean.

We rent from VRBO frequently, I can safely say that the owners of this house, Stella and Aymeric, are the best property managers that I have ever experienced. Every possible question you might have about the house and the area is laid out in a professional "instruction guide." They took the time to meet us at the house and to show us around.

It was obvious that they take great pride in the house and in that area of France. They are enthusiastic about providing recommendations and guidance for things to do in the area.

One fact that is very telling about how much they care about their guests, is that I happened to mention before we arrived that my daughter has food allergies and cannot drink regular milk or soy milk but could only drink rice milk. I asked if there were any supermarkets in the area. Stella gave me a list of several supermarkets with their addresses. However, because we were arriving on a Sunday in the late afternoon, all of the supermarkets were already closed. Stella thought of this ahead of time and went out and bought us some rice milk before we arrived so that my daughter would have something to drink. That is indicative of how much Stella and Aymeric care about their guests.

If you one to visit this area of France, this is the place to stay.

The Luberon Natural Park has something for everyone, whether you want to chill out, have a sportive holiday, go sightseeing, or have a gourmet trip either with friends or family, you will be not be disappointed. The beautiful scenery, characterized by hill-top villages, some dating back as early as the 11th century, vineyards and orchards, is magnified by the light which is specific to La Provence making the Luberon a great holiday destination.

Area

Cucuron, best known for its pond L’Etang surrounded by bicentennial plane trees, is a charming village that is lively all year around and has a local economy. On Tuesdays the market will provide you with a taste of local products. The village is also home to a Michelin star restaurant where the Chef is giving cooking class on Saturdays morning and 7 other restaurants that cater for all budgets, a cinema, 3 bakeries, an olive oil mill and boutique, a butcher, a grocery shop, 2 beauty salons, a local museum, a church and historical buildings and shops. Ideally located in the Luberon Natural Park, Cucuron is an excellent base to explore both the Luberon and la Provence by car with Aix-en-Provence, (35 mins) Marseille (50 mins) and Avignon (1h15 mins) being close by.
