Imagine the idyllic Provençal landscape…Now add your dream country villa. Combine this with a luxurious swimming pool, chic modern touches, and a long table topped with Mediterranean dishes and the smiling faces of all your friends and family. Maison Julien invites you to experience the ultimate Provençal fantasy with equal doses of nature, village life, gastronomy, art and history.
In your very own slice of the region, you can enjoy magnificent rural views from Maison Julien and explore the oche trails in Roussillon-just 5 minutes away. Join the joyful bustle of the open-air market in Bonnieux, dine in a swanky restaurant in Goult and discover the blend of dark secrets and modern fashion in Lacoste.
Traditional rustic elements melded with sleek modern finishes make Maison Julien immediately inviting. Your guests will be inspired by the characterful interior design as they choose from one of 3 double ensuite rooms. Refined, elegant, and light-filled with private terrace; the bedrooms contrast beautifully with the stylish fresh-feel bathrooms.
Sheltered from most of the day’s sun, the stylish veranda is the cherry on the cake. The entire west-facing wall is entirely made of glass allowing glorious views over the garden, pool and beyond. Each meal can be enjoyed in a different room but in summer months, take advantage of the quaint courtyard for nibbling on croissants and the pool-side dining shelter for charcuterie and cheese. Here, you only need to jump out of the pool, wash off in the attached shower room and pour yourself a glass of crisp white wine.
Outside you will be hit with a sensory cacophony; a flash of pink flowers, a bunch of lavender, sausages grilling on the barbeque, a refreshing plunge into the pool and the gentle hum of cicadas. This heart-stirring garden will entice you to stay the whole day long but adventure and culture are a-plenty in this neck of the woods!
Don your walking shoes for hikes in the pine forest, visit higgledy-piggledy lanes that surround the ruined castle and round the day off with the best bottle of red you tried earlier at one of the local wine estate.
