Beautiful villa, gorgeous pool.. A really relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous and felt like a home from home. The views from the terrace are stunning and the pool is beautiful - the sun shines all day. The garden is huge and very private. A good location for visiting the Luberon and only 40 minutes from the airport at Marseilles. The pictures don't do the villa justice, it's beautiful.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Marseille or Avignon at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Merindol at 2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Marseille at 60 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Pont Royal at 7 Kilometres Nearest Train : Avignon at 40 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A7 at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Merindol at 2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Cassis at 90 Kilometres


There are beaches near Marseille but our favourite is about 1 and a quarter hour drive at Cassis which is on the road to St. Tropez. Alternatively St. Marie de la Mer at the bottom of the Camargue is about 50 mins away.


We fly to Marseille airport which is now served by British Airways, Easyjet, Air France and Ryanair and the house is a 45 minute drive from Marignane. You can also fly with Ryanair to Nimes which is about an hour and a quarter from the house. Avignon airport which is now served by Flybe is 30 mins. The TGV station is at Avignon (40 mins).


Merindol our local village is a 5 min drive (my husband walks); Mallemort which has all of the supermarkets, fish shop, wine shop etc. is 6 min drive; Aix en Provence is a 45 minute drive and Avignon 40 mins. The luberon has some of the most beautiful hill villages in France and we have a wealth of markets, abbeys, chateaux. Lots and lots to see.
