About the Property
Villa, 5 Bedrooms , 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The 3 large bedrooms in the main house are all equipped with en-suite bathrooms, King-sized (180 cm) beds, alarm/CD players, and air conditioning. They open to the upper and lower terraces, enjoying gorgeous views of the countryside. One of those bedrooms is located on the main floor, ideally suited to our guests with impaired mobility.
The 2 bedrooms in the second house have been updated and upgraded to the standards of the main house. Also equipped with air conditioning and brightly colored en-suite bathrooms with Italian showers, they are furnished with a Queen bed (160 cm) in one and 2 twin beds in the other. A Nespresso machine, water boiler and bar fridge complete the equipment of these two bedrooms, allowing for those late night snacks, early morning coffee, or the urge for a cold drink in the middle of the night.
The main house offers a large formal living room and a dining room for 10, as well as a smaller TV room with international channels and various media plug-ins. The upper galleria above the living room is dedicated to office work, with desks and full internet access, as anywhere else throughout.
The kitchen, decorated in the Provencal fashion, is the heart of the house. Equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a large pantry, and all the necessary cookware, from family heirlooms to modern pots and pans, it is truly fit for the gourmet cook. Our American guests will feel at ease thanks to the imported measurement tools, English cookbooks, washer/dryer and ice-water dispenser fridge...
A small covered gym, equipped with an upright bike, rowing machine, and weights completes the main floor.
You may choose to have breakfast on the back patio looking out to a rose garden, have a quick lunch in the cool of the kitchen , enjoy an evening drink in the outside living room and dine outside on the large teak table, looking out to the pool.
With AC in all the bedrooms, very comfortable beds, lots of towels and all paper and cleaning supplies, kitchen staples, hairdryers, high-speed internet access throughout, Satellite TV with all international channels, a separate clothes dryer, a gas BBQ, a heated pool suitable for laps, a petanque game area, a huge, completely fenced and very private garden with panoramic views of the Apt valley, an English-speaking house-manager who can double as a concierge and help you organize your stay with advance bookings, gourmet tours and in-house catering, that is a value of $80 per night per occupant for 10 people, in the midst of the high-season!
You may decide to spend an active day, discovering one of the numerous villages hanging from the hills, visiting the splendid Abbaye of Senanque in its nest of lavender, shopping at the local markets or at the nearby farm for the bountiful produce of the region, or you may decide to do nothing and stay at the house all day, resting in the shade, listening to the humming cicadas', or going for a walk in the adjacent forest and cooling off in the pool.
The pool is heated, and once you have enjoyed a midnight bath in the starry night, watching the twinkling lights in the valley as you swim, you will truly feel in paradise!
So call me now to book your next stay in Provence.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We, (Pascal and Francoise) are both French living in Seattle, WA (USA). We were craving sun, and we wanted to have a family home in France, a gathering place for the French side of the family and all our friends across the world. We wanted it to be nice, but simple and without fuss, welcoming to our big kids as much as to the grand-parents. The kids love to come for extended visits, and our first grand-son has had his first taste of Provence this last August. The dog came to visit and loved it too...
Why the Owner Chose Goult, France:
We bought Villa Manon 14 years ago for its spectacular views of the Luberon, for the peace and quiet surrounding it, for the endless sunny days we could envision spending in Provence. We considered the time it took traveling from Paris or the US, where it was located if we wanted to attend all the beautiful summer festivals in Orange, Avignon, Aix.... and the fact that it was close to some of the most superb vineyards that go so well with the local food.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We made the house comfortable for all the friends visiting us with or without their children and we made sure we could cook great meals in the kitchen (Francoise loves to cook and Pascal loves to eat!). There is never enough time in Provence to do it all: winetasting in Bandol or Chateauneuf du Pape, shopping, day dreaming by the pool, playing tennis in the early morning, walking through the hills to Lumiere or stopping by the cafe in Goult, a nap in the shade, a great restaurant at night, we just love it all and are always sad to leave.
