3 charming stone gîtes in 10 peaceful acres, plus a pool, tennis and several terraces for dining. Wonderful for groups and close to Aix

Space, peace and much to explore. Acres of parkland surround these three stone-built gîtes, outbuildings of the 16th-century château. While the kids make hay in the sun-drenched grounds, you can slip into the fenced pool (shared among the gîtes) or gaze on the view. In a mad moment, you might even play tennis: a court lies hidden among the trees. Nicely separated, each gîte has been renovated by the McDougalls to keep its Provençal charm, the largest being La Grange, whose open-plan living room – great beams, exposed stone walls, three blue sofas – is vast and lovely. Floors are terracotta, furnishings are contemporary and uncluttered and quirky features have been retained – a feeding trough houses loo rolls, a hayrack carries towels. There are fireplaces for winter, terraces for summer, kitchens are well-equipped and bedrooms light and breezy with pretty bedcovers – toss a coin for the bedroom in La Grange with the terrace. Look forward to walking, riding, the Lubéron National Park, festivals in Aix, restaurants in Pertuis... the delightful owners live in the chåteau and can organise babysitting, too.

Local points of interest from
Deb & Alec McDougall:

  • Being situated in the foothills of the Luberon Natural Park, means there are some lovely on and off road cycle routes and walks from the property, either along the Durance River or up through the vines covered wine producing chateaux.
  • You are just a twenty minute drive to the historic spa city of Aix-en-Provence, where you can explore the markets and winding streets, which all seem to converge on fountains. Or enjoy a glass of wine on the Cours Mirabeau watching the world go by.
  • By contrast, some of the most famous villages in the Luberon, including Lourmarin, Cucuron, Bonnieux and Ansouis, are easily reached by meandering country routes, offering wonderful markets and produce, which you can sample in the numerous restaurants.
  • Avignon, the city of the Popes and Arles, with its Roman Theatre and Arena are just over an hours' drive away. To the south of Arles lies the beautiful Camargue area, famous for its horses, bulls and flamingoes.
  • The impressive Gorges du Verdon, the world's second largest gorge, is an area of outstanding natural beauty and breathtaking scenery, Formed by the Verdon River, named for its startling turquoise colour, it is possible to kayak, pedalo or swim in the lake
  • The Calanques, which line the beautiful coastline, are under an hours' drive away. These majestic limestone cliffs are best viewed by boat. Trips are available from Cassis, the picturesque fishing village, with wonderful seafood restaurants on the quay.

Guest feedback
"Stayed in Sebastian's House during an artist retreat, our group rented all 3 accommodations. Grounds are beautiful, the 3 gites were beautifully restored with modern conveniences. Owners, Alec and Deb, were very nice and accommodating, and even gave our group a tour of the main house. So much history follows this chateau. Easy access to the main road, local town of Pertuis is large enough for most services. I would consider renting this property for a future artist get-together in southern Provence."
