Pin this Villa
Petit Luberon faces south across a vast and spectacular private valley. Nestled on several hectares of land with lavender fields, truffle oaks and natural bush land, Petit Luberon is close what one imagines in the picture books of Provence. It is a delightful stone house with sage green shutters and picture windows and doors framing beautiful views.

Inside the house are thick stone walls, tiled floors and exposed beams of traditional Provencal architecture. Because of its position, light floods the house from dawn to sunset. There is also a pretty pool set away from the house. All this in a 4 acre garden with truffle oaks.

Average rating:
4 out of 5 based on 2 ratings. 2 user reviews.

The experience was incredible! The location, while a bit out of town, was absolutely beautiful! The owner could not have been more helpful and was present but not intrusive. The house was comfortable, well furnished and well appointed.

Areas for improvement:
The only area for improvement would be more bowls in the kitchen. We never seemed to have enough.
Only Provence- The place where I sent the payment and who I contacted were different names and addresses which made me a bit uncomfortable at first. It seemed odd that the “Stanley” name came out of nowhere when it came to signing contracts etc. An explanation would have made me more comfortable. It felt like I was sending my money to a stranger.

Would you recommend Petit Luberon, Only Provence, Chefs or Tours? Why or why not?
I will completely recommend all three!! The house was beautiful and comfortable, Damian our chef for one night was awesome and the the Truffle tour was perfect as well!

What star rating would you give Petit Luberon? (1 is lowest and 5 is the highest) 5
What star rating would you give Only Provence? 4.95
What star rating would you give Chefs/ Tours you experienced? 5

What an awesome place to find the perfect villa in the south of France!! They were able to find the perfect place for our 50th birthday group and for the right price!! Thanks so much!!

The house(s) were comfortable Petit Luberon had more ambiance than Pierres du Luberon, which we found internally very noisy.
The area is very scenic but also very remote, with no grocery shopping, not even a convenience store, nearby. You need to drive into Apt. We did less sightseeing than intended because of the remote location.

Areas for improvement:
Bedding was inadequate for the cold evening / night temperatures. Only a sheet and blanket. When we asked about duvets they had lots in storage and made up the beds with them, but the next week we were back to sheet and blanket and had to ask again. There is underfloor heating but we were told it was too early to turn it on.
The GPS coordinates provided did not work for two different vehicles, so I assume they are incorrect. It's not easy to find if you haven't been there before. The book of information provided in each house contains much clearer directions than those provided by Only Provence

Chef David was extraordinarily good, Not only his food and presentation, but his teaching skills as he prepared the dinner. His English is more than adequate. Highly recommended.

Locale

Two minutes from the quaint and quiet village of Buoux with 2 restaurants but no shops. Ten minutes from the village of Bonnieux in the Luberon National Park and 15 minutes from Apt and Lourmarin. Seemingly miles from anywhere with its wide-open spaces, tranquility and wildlife, this lovely stone house is equidistant from the market town of Apt and the medieval and exquisite town of Lourmarin with its galleries and restaurants. The surrounding countryside is very well known for rock climbing and hiking and with a fabulous old Chateau and an extraordinary medieval fort nearby, the area is also a painter and photographers' delight.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
