Quietly secluded at the bottom of a secret lane lies the quaint country cottage – Le Pavillon. This 18th century sheepfold blends perfectly into its surroundings of shrub dotted rocks and colourful flowers on the edge of a forest. Live the Provençal dream amongst the vineyards, lavender and fruit trees and sip rosé with views over the Luberon valley and hills.
Between Aix and Avignon and encircled by quintessential perched villages its the ideal base for exploration in the wilderness as well as having easy access to cultural attractions.
The stone walls and shutters of Le Pavillon bring freshness to the spacious living areas on those blazing hot days and during winter months the cosy sofas, chocolate tones and open fire bring warmth. Feel totally at ease in the spotless, modern bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. You will prepare your Provençal dishes in the rustic and convenient kitchen as you discuss the day ahead with loved ones in the breakfast nook.
Looking for further privacy? Head up to the hidden terrace which is open to the elements for some sunbathing, reading, a morning coffee or deal with some pressing business in the private office.
Live an al-fresco life in the mysterious exterior of Le Pavillon. The pond-like pool steps directly into the forest for mushroom hunting and each meal can be taken in a different cranny of the courtyard or garden. You discover the region on foot or by bike breathing in the herb scented air as you take a trip to one of the close by villages. In summer months, you can experience the towns’ festivals, art exhibitions and gastronomic restaurants. Collect local produce off the traditional markets before returning to your private haven for family games on the patio and floating in the pool without a care in the world.
