Villa St Elisabeth faces south with a magnificent view, across a vast and spectacular private valley planted with truffle oaks, yet it is only two minutes from the village of Buoux in the Luberon National Park.
Seemingly miles from anywhere with its wide-open spaces, tranquillity and wildlife, this lovely stone house is equidistant between the market town of Apt and the medieval and exquisite town of Lourmarin with its galleries and restaurants.
The surrounding countryside is very well known for rock climbing and hiking and with a fabulous old Chateau and an extraordinary medieval fort nearby, the area is also a painter and photographers’ delight.
Nestled on 120 acres of land with lavender fields, truffle oaks and natural bush land, Villa St Elisabeth is close what one imagines in the picture books of Provence.
It is a delightful two story stone house with sage green shutters and picture windows and doors framing beautiful views.
Inside the house are thick stone walls, tiled floors and exposed beams of traditional Provencal architecture. Because of its position, light floods the house from sunrise to sunset.
There is also a pretty pool set away from the main house and a charming summer house with a guest room. Both also have marvellous views.
Please note, only bookings of 2 consecutive weeks or more during July and August.
The scenery around this part of the Luberon is stunning. There are views in all directions and the property is ideally placed for some marvelous countryside walks. There are many Regional summer festivities: Theater in , Opera in Aix and , Jazz festival in LaRoque d’Antheron and many antique fairs and flea markets. Orange Avignon.
There is Tennis available in Apt or Bonnieux, horseback riding in Apt, mountain bikes for rent in Bonnieux. There are some excellent restaurants in the area, in particular, in Buoux, the Auberge de la Loube.
