Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

La Jassine is a Provençal-style villa nestled at the base of the Luberon Mountain range in the Luberon Regional Nature Park. The property is set among the vineyards, olive groves, and fruit orchards of the countryside between the charming villages of Lourmarin and Vaugines.

La Jassine is a private, fully furnished, 3 bedroom villa with outstanding views of the Luberon Mountain and spectacular sunsets. La Jassine offers Provençal country living at its finest. Savour the tranquility of Provence in the lounges around the deck of the swimming pool, enjoy a game of tennis on the full-sized tennis court or simply relax in the hammock stretched between the oak trees. The two-acre property has an orchard of cherry and olive trees in front of the villa and another orchard of fruit and olive trees on a hill behind the villa. There are many trees, shrubs and herbs on the property.

Interior Description

The kitchen of La Jassine is Provençal-style, with rustic oak cabinets, a terracotta countertop and a typical beamed ceiling. From the large kitchen window, there is a spectacular view of the mountains. The kitchen is fully equipped for aspiring chefs. The focal point of the open concept living/dining area is a typical Provençal fireplace with a high efficiency wood insert. French doors lead directly out onto the terrace. There is a TV with satellite receiver and a multitude of international channels, as well as DVD and VCR. The master bedroom features a teak bed with lovely Chinese headboard and large windows on two walls, offering views of the terrace and pool. The second bedroom has 2 single beds and the third bedroom has a double bed with a view of the tennis court. The airy, bright bathroom features a long vanity with 2 sinks and a beautiful tub with hand shower. There is also a separate shower room with sink.

From the living room, a magnificent sandstone staircase leads to the large, second- floor office/library. A huge, sliding picture window offers a breathtaking view of the Luberon Mountains. An antique desk in front of the window provides a wonderful place to enjoy the landscape while you catch up on your correspondence or begin working on that book you have always wanted to write. There is also a double bed, a couch, and a single daybed at one end of the large office area. There are English and French books, guide books, toys, games, and a Foosball/Baby Foot.

Exterior Description

A doorway leads from the second floor onto a terrace at the front of the villa that overlooks the Luberon Mountains. It is the ideal spot for watching the sunset while enjoying the local wine or for spectacular stargazing. The sheltered, southern exposure terrace off the living/dining room behind the house is the perfect place for breakfast or a romantic dinner. From the terrace, a few steps lead up to the pool and deck, bordered by a small garden. The full size tennis court overlooks the Luberon. A private road leads past the cherry orchard to this unique property, which enjoys complete privacy. In this beautiful country setting, you will enjoy the extraordinary light and colour of Provence that inspired Van Gogh and Cézanne. The distinctive sound of the cicadas (cigales) and the intoxicating perfumes of wild herbs will delight your senses.

The villa is located in a flourishing cultural region that offers a wide range of festivals. The sightseeing possibilities are endless, including the nearby castles of Lourmarin and Ansouis. The village of Lourmarin has been named one of France’s most beautiful villages. The villa is close to many fine restaurants, including the acclaimed Auberge La Fenière and the Moulin de Lourmarin.

La Jassine is a peaceful retreat with breathtaking natural beauty in the heart of Provence, where fine restaurants, fascinating historical sites, and outstanding entertainment are easily accessible. Your stay at La Jassine may be your most memorable vacations ever.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rated :4 of 5 Stars. A WONDERFUL BASE TO EXPLORE THE LUBERON!

We stayed at La Jassine for a week at the end of September. The house is well equipped, comfortable and has the added bonus of both a swimming pool and tennis court. La Jassine is just outside the picturesque town of Lourmarin which can be reached in minutes by car or for the more active, you can easily walk the couple of kilometers into town from a path at the end of the property. As La Jassine is outside of an urban area I thoroughly enjoyed the tranquil setting and views of the Luberon mountains.

Rated: 5 of 5 Stars. BEAUTIFUL PEACEFUL, PRIVATE, CHARMING SETTING AND CHARMING HOME ND CLOSE PROXI!

La Jassine is well-outfitted and comfortable located in a lovely private, quiet setting surrounded by vinyards and orchards. The Luberon mountains and hiking trails begin at the foot of the driveway, and there are fabulous cycling routes in all directions. There are at least four charming, historic and vibrant French villages within 2-5 km. A little piece of paradise. Enjoy!

Rated:5 of 5 Stars FABULOUS VILLA IN THE HEART OF PROVENCE

This villa is a home away from home and unlike many French rentals, is spacious and well equipped. We also found it clean as well as convent le located for daily trips to explore the quaint hill towns of Provence and local villages. We will certainly return one day.

Un weekend en Provence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la villa La Jassine avec un petit groupe d'amis au courant du mois d'avril. C'est après avoir roulé au travers du magnifique village de Lourmarin que nous découvrîmes notre nouveau nid pour la durée d'un séjour qui, comme toujours, se révélerait être bien trop court. La Jassine est une sublime habitation au milieu d'une nature majestueuse typique de la Provence, que nous ne nous sommes pas gardés d'explorer en randonnée ou balades à vélo. Les paysages sont tout bonnement époustouflants. Si cela n'était pas assez, la piscine et le terrain de tennis privés accotés à la villa permettent de profiter d'un bain de soleil ou, pour les plus sportifs, d'échanger quelques balles. La villa prévoit tout ce qu'il faut pour un séjour reposant et serein: grande salle à manger où nous ne manquions jamais de nous retrouver, salon avec fauteuils et canapés moelleux, cuisine parfaitement équipée, chambres confortables avec vues époustouflantes, salle de bain impeccablement propre et, bien sûr, une spacieuse terrasse sur laquelle nous prenions la majorité de nos repas. Bref, la Jassine est le lieu idéal pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis, pour oublier les soucis de la ville et se laisser apaiser par le confort d'une élégante et jolie maison Provençale.

Fabulous Provence retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at La Jassine 3x over the past 5 years and will return again May 2018. The villa is cozy and well outfitted with a large pool and the location peaceful and private with beautiful views of surrounding vineyards, orchards and mountains. Hiking and cycling can be done from the front door. There are at least 5 quaint French villages and weekly markets within 3-6 km. Paul and Sandra are very responsive and friendly. We love La Jassine!

Feels like Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we will return.

The property is ideally located near

Lourmarin. We visited different nearby villages each day picking up fresh items at their farmer markets. The area is rural and we always felt very safe.

We stayed for two weeks and our next visit will be longer.

La Jassine is a wonderful house, it is very peaceful and private with a lovely view yet close to some great towns, Lourmarin especially is a gem. We loved the tennis court and the space upstairs.

Memorable Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent over two weeks at La Jassine and had a wonderful time. After a couple days we were already talking about returning some day.

This is a very comfortable house with lots of room and everything that you need for a long-term stay. The location was perfect for us. It was quiet and out-of-the-way but within walking distance of Lourmarin, Vaugines and Cucuron. We spent more time in Lourmarin but loved the walk to Cucuron, going through vineyards and farms. It's not a short walk but amazing that you can do it and hardly set foot on a paved road.

We also enjoyed just relaxing at the house. The view is beautiful and you feel like you have the Luberon to yourself. The house is well taken care of, too -- this is not a barely adequate rental property but there is a fully-stocked kitchen providing everything you would need for cooking. We would love to make a return visit!
