Sunny, 4-bedroomed house in its own garden with gated pool and lovely views situated on the edge of the lovely hill top village of Lacoste, in the Luberon national park, Vaucluse, Provence, one hour north of Marseille, 40 mins from Avignon. Comfortable, well-equipped, w/ terrace for outdoor eating, mature garden, and free wifi. Very quiet but only 5 mins walk to cafes and shop.
The house is simply but stylishly decorated with a large very well-equipped kitchen/dining room with cook books, a TV/sitting room (nb TV plays only DVDs) with excellent book, DVD library and board games, as well as a few toys and arts materials for kids. Four good-sized bedrooms (three doubles, one twin), master bedroom has en suite shower room. Two further WCs, one with a shower, and a bathroom. Good quality mattresses, duvets and fans in bedrooms. Heating for cooler nights. Though it sleeps 8, we think it's ideal for a party of 4-6. Outside, the 1.3 acre mature garden runs around the house with dining terrace and large table, shady trees, a lawn and a gated pool (4x8m), heated with a solar cover. There's a table tennis table. Upstairs two balconies. Great views across the valley to the village of Bonnieux. Protected from the Mistral. Cleaner prepares the house for your arrival and cleans when you leave. Linen and bath towels provided and changed once a week -- please bring your own pool towels. Private parking for two cars. Children welcome.
We have a friend who lives 5 minutes away, who arranges key pick-up and trouble shoots.
