Of an early morning, the sun rises over the misty Luberon valley and a burst of colour from the horizon illuminates the lush vineyards, Mont Ventoux and renowned hilltop villages. Find yourself perched on your own hillside in a peaceful valley in the heart of Provence…
Villa Maria is a contemporary structure made from locally sourced stones and designed by a local architect. The spacious rooms, quality amenities and fabulous outdoor spaces make Villa Maria ideal for holidaying in large groups.
Villa Maria achieves perfect flow from the main living spaces out to the sheltered terrace, into the glistening pool and afar. Light and airy bedrooms welcome the sun’s rays; all 5 ensuite bedrooms have Air con –a perfect contrast against the bright views that entre the windows.
The whole family can help out in the spacious, Provençal kitchen and discuss the day ahead at the accommodating table. Lunch in front of the pool or indoor dining on a rare rainy day…there are many different nooks to settle in for social or private times. You can catch up with some work in the office while the kids read or watch in the snug, but most of your time will be spend al fresco…
Chase the sun and shade around the distinct edges of Villa Maria. From basking in the sun to ice-cold beverages under the parasols, from a 6 o’clock pastis on the front patio as the kids have their last splash in the infinity pool to a midnight cocktail and a dip in the heated water – you will find it hard to tear yourself away from this haven of relaxation!
But if you do… Go horseback riding in the valley, potter around the markets in the cobbled streets of the local villages and take a trip back into antiquity at the Borie village (Neolithic settlement) and Sénanque Abbey amidst the lavender fields.
