The Experience

In a clearing among lavender fields and truffle oak woods is a cluster of five cottages, all quite secluded and private from each other. Your two-storey stone building was once a shepherd’s rest and has views to Mount Ventoux.

A local lady, Joelle, greets you and leaves flowers and wine. You may not want to stray far – there’s a cosy fireplace in the cottage, plus books and games, and a boules court and shared swimming pool. Fire up the barbecue on your private terrace and marvel at the sunset; pick your own veg and herbs from the shared garden.

You can walk or cycle on nearby trails or go cliff climbing nearby or hop in the car to explore the Luberon. There are plenty of good places to eat – the nearest in the medieval town of Saignon, a five-minute drive away; the closest big food shops are in Apt, a ten-minute drive away.

The best review I can give is to say that we arrived NYE to celebrate for the weekend and stayed 3 months because we loved this place so much! It's magical to be here on a huge property with walks through the gorgeous countryside right from the doorstep. The cottages are sooo cute; the fireplace is cozy and the kitchen is so well-equipped. The owners are just the just the nicest people and they really are concerned about the happiness of their guests. We are tearfully tearing ourselves away and already planning the next visit. It has been our favourite place to stay in France. Thank you.

Karen, Lyon

Glorious rural setting surrounded by lavender fields and truffle oak woodlands. Magic sunsets, great walks, delightful medieval villages nearby. Five comfortable and well furnished cottages to suit from just one couple to a group of 6. Private outside patios and gardens with own BBQ. Total privacy. If you love nature, rural peace and quiet then you'll love Domaine des Claparedes - great place to unwind and forget about the outside world.

The neighbourhood

There are ten hectares of land, four of which are lavender fields. The nearest town, medieval Saignon, is 2.5 km or a five-minute drive and has a bakery and three restaurants. The nearest supermarket is in Apt, a ten-minute drive away, where there are also restaurants and cafes. There’s a two Michelin-starred restaurant, La Bastide de Capelongue, in the hilltop town of Bonnieux, about half an hour’s drive away, as well as a well-regarded restaurant called Le Fournil.


Miriam and Jürgen Nieveler

Miriam and Jurgen, the owners, are German but have lived in Provence since 2010. Jurgen is retired (he worked for General Electric) and Miriam is an artist. They used to holiday at this property, then tried a longer winter let, then decided to buy it and move here. They now live outside Aix-en- Provence, and Joelle, who is from nearby Apt, looks after the cottages.
