Luxury Villa with annex on Golf Course Development with Pool and Jacuzzi

Overview

Property

Updated: 26-Nov-2016
3 or 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms + 2 cloakrooms. Peaceful secluded location. Table tennis & boules pitch. 2 golf courses on site. Close to village centre

Our luxurious architect designed villa, is situated in a private corner of the magnificent Pont Royal golf and country club setting, with stunning views over the Luberon, and within half a kilometre of the village where there are shops and restaurants. High quality local materials of stone, terracotta, oak and forged iron have been used throughout the villa which all add to its special ambience and charm.

In the main house there are 3 bedrooms (2 with king-size beds and 1 with 2 single beds), large lounge/dining area, fully equipped kitchen which was remodelled in 2012, mezzanine with cloakroom and TV area, English satellite TV and multi-language cable TV including English, French, German and Italian channels, DVD; study area with free broadband and telephone calls to landlines in Western Europe.

Outside the master bedroom there is a wisteria and jasmine covered terrace with comfortable seating and coffee table - perfect for an early morning cup of tea!.

The separate guest annex, which overlooks the pool and garden, can only be rented in conjunction with the main house and comprises a large bedroom, ensuite shower room and kitchenette with cupboard space. A cot and/or put-u-up can also be provided for use in the annex. It is ideal for larger families, for grandparents on holiday with their children who want their own space, families sharing, those bringing a nanny or for teenagers wanting to be separate from parents!

The villa sleeps a maximum of 8 (excluding the cot and put-u-up) and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

Please note that a discount will be given if the annex is not required.

At the front of the property there is a small garden hedged in by black bamboo. A garage and additional parking for up to two cars provide safe and secure parking. The side garden contains an olive tree, rose and lavender bushes.

At the back of the property, in a private courtyard setting, lies the large pool and adjoining spacious jacuzzi with magnificent views of the Luberon and the village of Pont Royal. The pool and jacuzzi are fitted with an electrically operated cover which complies with the stringent AFNOR Safety Standards. A bed of lavender separates the pool from the covered terrace and barbecue. The covered dining terrace with table and chairs for 10 and the wisteria and jasmine covered terrace (outside the master bedroom) with coffee table and additional seating both offer shade when required, as do the mature pine trees by the side of the pool. The traditional built-in stone barbecue is ideal for preparing and cooking local produce while sampling one of the local wines.

There is a large sun terrace around the pool and plenty of garden furniture. When not relaxing, why not play table tennis or boules? The garden is professionally landscaped and maintained and there is an automatic watering system which ensures that the lawn and beds do not suffer in the intense Provencal sun. From the lawn area by the pool, a few steps will lead you down to the first terrace where the boules pitch can be found. Can there be a nicer way to spend a balmy summer evening - a friendly game of boules, a glass of wine and a glorious view of the Luberon? More steps will take you down to the second terrace where there are vines and a fig tree.

Various activities on site include a wave pool, swimming pool, two water chutes, horse riding, tennis, crazy golf, playgrounds and kids' clubs. These can all be booked at the Pierre et Vacances Reception in the village square.

Our villa is ideal for families, golfers, walking or cycling enthusiasts and also makes a perfect base for exploring the many historic cities and villages in the area including Avignon, Aix en Provence, Arles, Nîmes, St Remy, Cassis, the Luberon and the Camargue. If you are feeling lazy, our house also makes an excellent base for lounging by the pool. Wine enthusiasts can explore the many wine producing areas both close to Pont Royal and further afield. Don’t forget that Provence is known for its rosé wines but there are several excellent red and white wines also produced here including Château Neuf du Pâpe, Vacqueras and Gigondas, several of which can be found in the wine shop in the village. There are also several beaches in and around Marseille.

About the Owner

I live in England with my husband. We have 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren. We spent much of our married life in rental accommodation, living and working overseas. I have always loved France and worked there for 2 years before getting married. As a family, we have spent several very happy holidays staying in other people's gîtes and as a result I believe I know what families are looking for when renting a house for their holidays.

Speaks English, French

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our holiday was lovely and the villa just lovely - everything to hand and clean and spacious. The girls were permanently in the pool. We also made good use of the boule terrace every evening with heated contests. Thank you so much for such a restorative and tranquil holiday. Katie and family



Just a note to say we had a wonderful time at your beautiful villa. Both our sons thoroughly enjoyed themselves in your new jacuzzi. The Anderson family



A wonderful villa and pool. Nothing lacking at all in the house - superbly equipped. The golf course and practice range greatly appreciated. Andrew, Mary, Ellie and Jack



A thoroughly great week with all the facilities. Hope your next guests enjoy the villa and pool as much as we did. The Bridgetts



Thank you for the use of your beautiful property. We will find it difficult to find another one that meets the high standards of this one. The area, too, is a delight. Lindsay, Jonathon, Samuel and Jacob.

Lovely Villa in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Family holiday with all 3 generations having a great time.

The Villa was perfect for our needs, lovely pool and jacuzzi, beautiful views, spacious accommodation, well equipped kitchen and all very clean.

Large patio areas were great for outdoor dining as well as relaxing.

The location is ideal, nice quiet and safe community with just a short walk to a few shops and restaurants.

Information sent prior to our arrival with the villa details, directions and local information was very useful and comprehensive.

The owner was very quick to respond to any queries we had and very helpful and friendly.

The Villa is close to lots of pretty villages and places to explore.

We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for your kind review. Since adding the annex, we have found that the house suits several generations, allowing peace and quiet to those who want it! Although the centre of Pont Royal can get very busy and noisy at peak periods, our house is very well situated and certainly benefits from a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle, yet it is only a 5 minute stroll from the centre. As you know, our pool and jacuzzi are situated at the rear of the house to take advantage of the lovely views. This benefits us greatly as the houses on either side of us both have their pools in the front gardens, and we consequently enjoy significant privacy aided by the pine trees and hedges around our garden. I am delighted that you all enjoyed your holiday and we hope to see you back at Pont Royal in the future.

Paradise in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a wonderful location with fabulous views to the Louberon. The villa is extremely well equipped and caters for all ages. We stayed in the annex, which is a wonderful addition giving that little bit of extra privacy. The barbecue terrace, with it's view to the Louberon, is a great place to relax with a glass of the excellent, local vin!

There is much to do in the area, whether you want sports activities, a bit of culture, visiting local markets or just relaxing over a good meal with great wines. Consequently, we highly recommend a holiday in this lovely villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very kind review. Our annex does seem to be very popular with friends and visitors alike and it certainly does have lovely views. The Provencal light at this time of the year certainly lends itself to the Luberon hills and the area is very much a painter's paradise. We look forward to seeing you back at our house in the future.

The perfect house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth family holiday in this villa and we again had really lovely and relaxing time. It made the perfect autumn half term- golden Provencal sunshine, the kids went in the wave pool, had horse riding lessons (all run inside Pont Royal), and Provence was quieter but still lovely bright and warm enough to eat and drink outside.

The house itself is as always beautiful, calm, and immaculate – comfortable beds, fluffy towels and plenty of space to relax with the family. We were really pleased in late October that it was still warm enough to enjoy lunch outside on the terrace and reading our books in the loungers around the pool. The children found plenty to entertain themselves in the house and garden- particularly going down into the valley at the bottom of the garden!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your great review. As you have discovered, summer is not the only good time to rent our house and it is so much easier to get around and visit all the great places in the area during the quieter months of the year. The fact that the garden is terraced and runs down to the valley gives children a great sense of freedom while they explore. As we like to entertain friends and family in Pont Royal out of season, we have tried to make the house as comfortable as possible and it is lovely to know that this is appreciated.

Review of Mas des Hirondelles

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I have rented this villa regularly over the last 6 years and we hope to do so again in the future. It is situated in a lovely private road and is not overlooked by any neighbours. It boasts beautiful views over the Luberon and there is nowhere better to enjoy a glass or three of rose.

The property is well-maintained, always clean and incredibly well-stocked with everything you might need from kitchen equipment, to tableware and board games. The structure of the property suited us well with a pool house that provided a separate living area for the young adults. The pool itself is a good size and the jacuzzi provides that element of luxury. There is also a mezzanine floor with television and a study area for those of us that work while on holiday.

On site there are local restaurants and shops and slightly further afield there are traditional villages to visit, chateaux offering wine-tasting and lovely restaurants to suit all tastes. The on-site manager is knowledgeable and responsive. All requests are dealt with promptly and courteously and any issues sorted immediately. This is a beautiful villa and I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. It's great to know that clients like the house as much as we do. We have found the annex by the pool to be a great addition and our friends, teenagers, grandparents etc. have all said that they love the extra privacy it affords. There is a lot to see and do in the local area and, even though we have now had the house for 13 years, we still find there are plenty of new places etc. to discover. We hope to see you again in the future.

Room with a view

  • 5 of 5

The property was in the most divine location on a hilltop with panoramic views. It was most beautifully appointed, could not fault it, perfectly maintained house and gardens, with a large swimming pool and jacuzzi, the self contained annex was heaven with its own kitchen and bathroom with the pool just outside the door. All the dining out was good whether in nearby Aix or a creperie on a hilltop, views are big round here. Lots of historic and arty places to visit, lots of lovely rosé to drink. Would definitely recommend it to anyone

Owner's Response: A lovely review - thank you very much. We find the annex very useful for friends, families holidaying together, grandparents and nannies, anyone who likes to have a little space to themselves. There are many lovely restaurants in the area and it is always fun discovering new ones. Exploring the area inevitably means that we discover something or somewhere that we had not known before as there is so much to see and do.

From the Owner

We love Pont Royal because of the fantastic facilities in the area. At present there is an 18 hole championship designed golf course in the Domaine and a new 6 hole course was completed in 2010. Apart from golf, you can hike in the Luberon or the Alpilles, rent a bicycle, play tennis, hire a canoe at Gordes or sample the many local wines. If you are an aspiring artist, the Provençal light and colours really are an inspiration. Aix en Provence, Avignon and Arles are all within easy driving distance. There are some beautiful beaches within an hour's drive and the marina at Marseille boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Marseille airport only 45 minutes drive away.

Facilities

From the Owner

Our property is situated in a quiet residential street less than 5 minutes walk from the bustle of the village square with its mini supermarket, newsagent, gift shops and restaurants. It is very much our second home and we have furnished it as such, with good quality furnishings, some of which we bought while living abroad. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is plenty of space with a sitting room downstairs and a TV and computer area upstairs with an excellent selection of books and games. In addition to the swimming pool, table tennis table and boules pitch, we also have a large jacuzzi - one of the few to have one! We provide bats and balls for the table tennis, boules etc. and there are also plenty of toys for use in the pool.
