This 18th century house sits  just a few minutes walk from the perched village of Ménerbes in the Luberon, where Peter Mayle set the action for his books. It has been lovingly restored by its French owner who guided us through the property at the end of March. This rental property was refurbished with holiday rentals in mind, thus offering all the amenities visitors coming to Provence would expect, such as its huge 10 x 7m private pool and pétanque court for the warm summer evenings. Services such as Ipod docking stations, WiFi access and many other commodities are available to our guests. La Maison Chandon is the ideal vacation home for a large family;  it succeeds in offering privacy, splendid views whilst being close to a lovely village in one of the most beautiful parts of Provence.

We visited Villa Domino with the property manager in early April, she told us how this exceptional contemporary rental villa was the personal project of a Portuguese and French couple living in the USA who entrusted a local architect to design a light filled structure which would maximise the splendid views and sunshine that this location is blessed with. Situated on the edge of the village of Cadenet which offers a choice of stores and cafés, it is also just minutes from the famously charming village of Lourmarin.  This exceptional villa, sleeping 8, is the ideal choice for a family looking for a stylish modern experience in the heart of Provence neighbouring major cultural centres like Aix-en-Provence or Avignon just 40 minutes drive away.



Le Belvédère, an architect’s hidden gem in Provence.

This luxury rental is situated in the midst of a oak forest. The French owners of this atypical villa were inspired by the Tour de Pinet; a 12th century square tower guarding the entrance to Venasque which is the nearby perched village overlooking the “Vallée de la Nesque“.  Le Belvédère offers splendid views, luxurious comforts – air conditioning, 2x 2m beds, heated pool- and total privacy in an underrated part of Provence.

Mas de l’Arc is the first property near the trendy city of Aix-en-Provence to be promoted by Just Provence. This traditional Provençal mas was tastefully restored and entirely refurbished by the owners with the help of local interior designer Nathalie Vingot Mei. It can accommodate up to 14 people and not only boasts a 12 x 6m infinity pool but also fantastic views over the surrounding vineyards and the Mountain Sainte Victoire. Staying at this holiday rental ensures you will experience all the sights and pleasures of a region which inspired some of the greatest artists of their time such as Picasso, Cézanne or Van Gogh.
