About the property

La Maison de Lune near Bedoin, Provence, France - A Stunning House with Private Pool in a Very Peaceful Location

La Maison de Lune has a very large open plan sitting room, dining room and beautiful kitchen with limestone floors and wonderful views from the floor to ceiling windows. The house is finished to a very high standard and it is situated in beautiful countryside. Truly a house with a wonderful ambiance. Within walking distance of one of Provence's most popular villages, yet in a rural location, it has outstanding 180º views from it’s spacious garden which stretch over the vineyards and woodlands of the beautiful Vaucluse Plateau. The sun rises over Mont Ventoux in the east and sets over the Dentelles de Montmirail to the west. The village of Bedoin with it’s bars, restaurants and the famous Monday market is well situated to explore this beautiful corner of Provence. Here you will find walled market villages, and beautiful cities, such as nearby Avignon and Aix en Provence. There are the Roman wonders of Orange, Vaison La Romaine, and Arles, and for antique and brocante lovers, the famous markets at l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Avignon. Take the wine trail passing numerous caves, which will welcome you in to sample their delights. For the more energetic there is canoeing, walking the numerous beautiful marked trails, or just meandering, fishing, golf, flying, horse riding and tennis. Bedoin is of course at the foot of the famous Mont Ventoux.

About Sally and Peter Richardson

Sally and I (Peter) live in an old farmhouse on the Essex/Suffolk borders. Our family are now grown up and we have five grand-children. We both enjoy French cuisine, wine and travel. Sally is a keen artist and I have a strong interest in historic cars and run a small restoration business. I think it is fair to say that we also are both enthusiastic Francophiles.

Sally and Peter Richardson purchased this house in 2014

Why Sally and Peter Richardson chose Ventoux - Carpentras area

We first visited this part of Provence in 1964, shortly after we were married, in order to take part in a sporting event, and fell in love with it at first sight. We have continued to visit almost every year since then initially bringing our children, and subsequently our grand-children, all of whom are equally passionate about the region. For us perhaps it’s greatest attraction is that in fifty years this area has changed little if at all. Arriving here is a step back in time, and consequently lifestyle. This is France at it’s very best, perpetual blue skies combined with wonderful local food, wine and friendly people. Access from the Autoroute, the TGV and three International Airports is also excellent with journey times of between 60 and 90 minutes.

What makes this house unique

To us one of the joys of both Flop House and La Maison de Lune is the utter peace and quiet of their location and yet within a twelve minute walk, or a four minute drive, you are in Bedoin with it’s excellent selection of restaurants, bars, boulangeries, shops and it’s Monday market. This operates throughout the year but during the Summer swells to such proportions that the whole town is closed to traffic. Here you will find wonderful fresh fish, local vegetables, charcuterie, olives, cheese, clothing and souvenirs, the list is endless.

Both houses also offer truly fantastic views of the foothills and indeed of Mont Ventoux itself, the Giant of Provence.

Lovely house with a touch of luxury

  • 5 of 5

In a beautiful, private, location, La Maison de Lune is a great base from which to explore the area. Bedoin is a 15 minute walk and, if cycling is your thing, you'll be in heaven. The house has spacious rooms, air conditioning and a lovely pool. We would definitely go again.

Gorgeous Find in Bedoin

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical visit staying at Maison La Lune. The home was spotless and oh so cozy. The home is bright, airy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is one of the best we've had in a rental property. There is a lovely outdoor area with a table to enjoy any meal. We would sit out in the evening with a glass of wine and enjoy the changing sunlight on Ventoux. In the morning we would do the same with coffee.

Maison De Lune

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Maison De Lune. The house is in a beautiful spot with views of Mont Ventoux and has been very tastefully decorated. The kitchen contains everything you would need for self-catering plus there is a barbecue. The walk to Bedoin is about 15 minutes and in more clement weather (it was 38 degrees when we were there!) would be a lovely stroll. The pool was the perfect temperature and size for our group. It's a great area especially if you are into cycling and we had some lovely meals in Bedoin and St Esteve. I would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return with a larger group and try The Flop House next door.
