About the property

Villa in Rognes, Aix en Provence, France - Large Very Private Property, With Garden In Tranquil Setting Close To Unspoilt Village Of Rognes

Last 2 weeks available, 15th of July to the 29th of July. We offer a reduction of €200 for a 2 week rental.

The house is a contemporary home situated in a naturally privileged environment with an exceptional view overlooking the Luberon Mountains in the heart of Provence. The 12.000m² (approximately three acres) property stands on the edge of a forest in the countryside five minutes from the charming typically Provencal village of Rognes. Rognes is perfectly placed between Luberon Natural Park and Bouche-du-Rhone. It has all the necessary shops e.g. boulangerie, grocery, greengrocer, etc. It is a village renowned for its proximity to the yearly piano/jazz festival held every July/August in La Roque d’Anthéron only a few minutes away and the many vineyards that abound for wine tasting. Aix-en-Provence, 20 minutes away, is a lively, cosmopolitan town with many festivals, restaurants and tri-weekly markets, home to Cézanne and the mountain he painted and loved, St. Victoire. Also near are Avignon, with the papal palace and theatre festival, Marseille and its old port, Mediterranean beaches.

About Fritz Alber

We are an international family, fluent in English, German and French, living in Provence, where we both work. Fritz (from Germany) is an engineer working for a French company and Julie (from New Zealand) is an art teacher working in an International College/Lycèe in Aix-en-Provence. We rent our house in summer when we like to holiday away with other family members and friends. We have fallen in love with this beautiful part of France and the many benefits it offers.

Fritz Alber purchased this villa in 2004

Why Fritz Alber chose Aix-en-Provence area

We love the Rognes/Aix area because of the fantastic lifestyle and facilities available. The charming hilltop villages of the Luberon, vineyards, restaurants (some with Michelin stars), art galleries, lively towns (Aix, Avignon, Marseille), beaches (Cassis, Carro etc.), stunning countryside for walks and biking, are all within reach. The local markets offer culinary delights (olives, tapenades, rosé etc.). In July/August this property is perfectly situated for the International Piano/Jazz Festival in La Roque d'Anthéron, Opera/Jazz Festival in Aix and the Theater Festival in Avignon. The area is easily accessible with Marseille Airport (Marignane) about 45 minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

There are three main features of this property that make it a wonderful place to be.

The view to the Luberon is stunning and uplifting.

The large magnificent pool (with waterfall) is refreshing in the summer heat and the total privacy of the countryside setting is relaxing and restful.

The comfortable and fully equipped villa's close proximity to the unspoilt Provencale village of Rognes is also a plus.
