Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, in a stunningly beautiful setting. Sleeps 8-12

Nestled in an enchanting private pine and oak forest, this very pretty villa is a dream for those wishing to escape the daily grind and have a totally relaxing provencal break. The villa was completely refurbished 2 years ago and manages to mix the new with the old: modern on the inside and typically provencale on the outside. The newly built pool (15m x 4.5m) is a modern version of a traditional "bassin" and comes with an innovative filter system to reduce chemicals and a robot that does all the hard cleaning work. Hammocks and sun loungers are provided along with pool towels and a selection of outdoor toys (boules/ badminton). Lavender, thyme and rosemary grow in abundance in the newly landscaped garden and around the enormous terrace. A large outdoor dinning table under the pergola is perfect for al-fresco lunches on the terrace, while an outdoor "sitting room" means that you can spend all your days outside. But what makes Les Fauquieres so special and totally different to any other villa is its stunning forest location. Oaks, pines and poplars grow on ochre land and the forest is the perfect playground for kids wanting to build camps and grown ups wanting to have long walks or bike rides. For those who love antiques we are 40 minutes away from the world famous Isle sur La Sorgue antiques market and there are "brocante" sales weekly in the surrounding villages. We are a 10 minute drive from Apt and its famous Saturday market.

About Pierre & Faiza

This stunning property has been in Pierre's family for over a century. In 2013 he undertook a large scale renovation of the house and added the pool and the terrace. Pierre and his family live in London, they try and get home to Les Fauquieres as often as possible.

What makes this villa unique

We love coming home to Les Fauquieres for the sheer pleasure of total rest and relaxation. While there are thousands of beautiful villas in the Luberon, few offer the magical location and ochre richness of Gargas/ Roussillon. It especially wonderful for those who love the outdoors and for those with children who want the freedom to run wild!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The most relaxing place in the world. Yoga by the pool, walks in the woods, fresh food...Heaven!" Beth and Linda, London (visitors 2 years in a row)



"A perfect playground for children which gives us adults the chance to read and relax. We loved our trips into the Luberon and we plan to come back again in the summer" Philippe and Irene, Paris



Wow, Italy had always been our top choice of holiday destination, but our stay in Les Fauquieres has changed our mind! 2 years in a row and we are planning a 3rd.

The pictures looked like just what we wanted- it was so much more what we wanted than I knew to want

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every meal outside. We didn't use it, but the kitchen was well equipped for larger groups. Terrific boulangerie in Gargas. Swim, eat, relax, listen to the cicadas, watch the stars. Just perfection. (If you despise ants outdoors- their presence may bother you, but they stayed outside which is all I ask of ants).

Perfect - stunning property & idyllic location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Les Fauquieres was quite simply the best property we have stayed in during our numerous family holidays to the South of France! Truly exceeds the description & photographs, as not only is the exterior of the house (the pool, the seating area & the terrace) gorgeous, the interior is so well designed with superb taste & fantastic modern fixtures & fittings. We have never visited the Luberon region before, but I think this has now become my new favourite part of Southern France; amazing views, wonderful hillside towns - simply beautiful. If you're looking for the definition of peace & quiet and need somewhere to relax & recharge - Villa Les Fauquieres is the perfect property for you! Thanks to Faiza & Pierre for their hospitality & their ease of communication! We will be back!!

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

It's an extraordinary place for Holidays, hidden in the "Provence" landscape, very clean and very well and nicely restored with a beautiful swimming pool and outdoor terrasse. It's close to all markets and to the beautiful picturesque small villages on the hills of the Lubéron like Gordes, Bonnieux and Lacoste. Highly recommended.
