Villa Hélѐne is a hidden gem. This luxury holiday rental villa sits on the outskirts of the little village of Peypin d'Aigues some 15 kilometres north east of Pertuis.

Situated in the southern part of the Luberon, the villa is located just off the famous "Route des Châteaux"; here you can visit some of the most stunning chateaux in Provence. It is close to Aix-en-Provence and not far from the famous Gorges de Verdon, "The Grand Canyon of France". You can watch gliders fly out of Vinon-sur-Verdon, the site of France's largest gliding club and training centre. Also a bit to the east are the famous lavender fields of the Plateau de Valensole.
We've had the most wonderful time, and none of us want to go home!
