A close-up of the pool. A small part of the 3 x 6m pool (1.5 m depth) is shaded, for those who love the water but not the hot sun. There are interesting natural rock seating areas under the canopy as well. The outdoor cooking area is just behind the pool; there is a pool bar, fridge, sink and plancha.
Behind this area is another bathroom with WC, sink and cold water shower.
The main entrance to the home, surrounded by olive and oak trees. Parking is also in front, on the stone patio. The home has a wonderful country setting yet you are only 5 minutes drive from St Didier on the D210 where you will find excellent local commerce.
To the side of the property there's plenty of mottled shade to be enjoyed. A children's swing and slide are found here, as is the spacious pétanque court where many a serious game of boules will be thrashed out whilst enjoying a Pastis apero.
The attractively furnished sitting area with its French windows leading directly down to the terrace and swimming pool area. In Provence we close shutters and draperies on hot days to keep the homes cool.
For those poor souls who need to work whilst on holiday, this office is just the thing. It is for this room that the owners have just purchased a new and comfortable sofa bed which allows the total occupancy at Villa Alouette to be 8 guests.
Villa Alouette, located in the tiny Provencal village of La Roque-sur-Pernes, has a dramatic setting on a hillside.
There are three bedrooms, a comfortable sofa bed in the spacious study, and two bathrooms inside the house. Provencal antique furniture accents the living room and kitchen.
The pool is in a wonderful setting, partially sheltered from the sun, and with its spectacular views, you will want to spend all day long lounging outside and admiring the views. There is an outdoor cooking area behind the pool with a plancha, pool bar, and frig. Behind this area is another bathroom with WC, sink and cold water shower. Large trees and olive trees add to the appeal of the property.
This is a wonderful Provencal rental home for a family or several couples. It is perfectly situated on the edge of a quiet village for a relaxing vacation but is also near local commerce; you can shop in nearby St. Didier and Pernes-les-Fontaines. It is close to sites in Provence that you want to see: L'Isle sur la Sorgue and its world famous Sunday market; the region around Mont Ventoux for hiking, cycling, and wine tasting; the Luberon villages; Avignon, and Côtes-du-Rhône wine regions. Aix-en-Provence and St -Rémy-de-Provence are just an hour away.
This is the perfect villa for your holidays in Provence.
As its name suggests, La Roque-sur-Pernes is perched on a rock and finds itself surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. A few minutes drive from the charming village of Saint Didier, a little further through the beautiful countryside to l'Isle sur la Morgue, and not far from the Luberon National Park.
