La Maison de Lune is reached by its own lane and is surrounded by fields and truffle woods. The views are long and uplifting, stretching south towards the Luberon. It was once an old outbuilding – impossible to imagine now. It’s a great place for families, friends and all who have a love of real Provence. Spread over two levels, it has delightful bedrooms all with ensuite, and if you’re a hiker or a cyclist who likes laid-back luxury, you’ll find it all here. There are logs for fires and towels for the private saltwater swimming pool (which can be heated in cooler months), wicker chairs and limestone floors, an American fridge and elegant crockery, fans for summer, parasols for sun-loungers – air con too. The colourful, well-tended garden has lavender, rosemary, wisteria, cherry, almond, olive and fig; the pool is child-safe. Find amazing Roman sites in Arles, Orange and Vaison la Romaine, art and architecture in beautiful old Avignon, and shops, restaurants and market in pretty Bedoin – a stroll away.
