Stone villa with pool, view and privacy

Nestling between vineyards and the Luberon mountain, Villa Saint Estève is a charming house with a beautiful unobstructed view of the majestic Ansouis Castle.

The house is set on 1.3 hectares and offers peace and privacy. There is an enchanting small natural oak forest as well as an orchard with cherry, almond and olive trees. Lavender, rosemary and the elegant Cyprus punctuate the landscape as does a beautiful old well.

Cosy and quirky interior

The house itself has cosy rooms and real ambience. All the rooms downstairs open onto the shady vine-covered terrace, which faces south onto the pool and the view. On your way upstairs to two more bedrooms, the slightly low beam adds to the character of the house.

This four-bedroom house is best suited for a maximum of 6 adults and 2-3 children; or 4 adults and 4-5 children. The ground floor double bedroom is on the smallish side but opens on to the terrace. It has its own bathroom with bath, shower and separate WC. The two upstairs rooms – one with double bed and the second with twin beds – share a bathroom (shower & WC). The double bedroom upstairs has air-conditioning.

Villa Saint Estève also has a spacious studio bedroom, It has its own bathroom (shower and WC) and also opens onto the terrace as well as on to the back area of the house. This area is independent from the rest of the house.

There is electric heating indoors for stays in the colder months. (Please note that there is an additional usage charge for heating in winter.)

Indoor and outdoor dining

The kitchen is generously equipped with all the necessary appliances, including coffee makers (Nespresso. plunger and filter), plus toaster, blender and ice-maker.

Meals can be served indoors in the dining room, on the terrace, or under the shade of the trees between the house and the pool.

Lazy, shady days

Relax around your private pool or sit under the shady trees and read a book in peace. In the evenings enjoy your aperitif on the terrace and soak up the view. It is the perfect place to return to after a day’s sightseeing of the beautiful villages, or from a morning’s shopping at the markets.

The pool measures 9 x 5 metres and has a large step area that’s good for small children, although please note that the pool is not enclosed by a fence. There is also a boulles/petanque court under the trees but close to the house and pool which offers great Provencal fun.

There’s plenty of shady parking on the property, plus ample general parking space.

      Well equipped and charming villa in lovely surroundings

      A charming villa set within spacious grounds and well situated in easy reach of Ansouis and Cucuron. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of good eating areas. We were relieved to have air conditioning in bedroom on first floor as weather was very hot. Great to be able to use bikes!

      A beautiful house and a perfect location

      We had a very pleasant week with friends (5 adults) in this beautiful spacious house, decorated and furnished with great taste. The cool weather of early October did not allow us to enjoy the pool, whose water was cool. But we enjoyed the beautiful terrace and the beautiful garden surrounded by olive trees and a grove of trees. It enjoys a privileged view of the village of Ansouis which is emerging in the distance. The place is perfectly peaceful.

      We were very well received by Christel, who takes care of the house and listened to our little problems. Caroline, the owner, had previously given us all the information and details we could wish for. She warned us in particular that the toilets had lived a little and called for an upgrade. While being quite suitable, they do indeed deserve a refresh. We do not doubt that this will be done soon.

      The location of the property is excellent: nestled in the middle of fields and vineyards, but at the same time near the charming village of Cucuron as well as Ansouis and its beautiful castle. Lourmarin is a short drive away. The situation is ideal both to visit the south side of the Luberon and to push until Aix en Provence, than to go back to the north, where a string of beautiful hilltop villages, such as Lacoste, Mesnerbes, Oppède-le-vieux, and well others are available for the visit.

      We will come back with pleasure.

      A little paradise to relax

      A perfectly equipped house, lovingly furnished, with plenty of space in and around the house. Seating for any time of day, whether sunny or shady. Fantastic view of the vineyards and the castle of Ansouis. Pretty villages all around, which – at least in September – have not yet been overrun by tourists, with markets that delight every lover of Provençal cuisine.
