Pin this Villa
La Roussillonne is an especially unique property in its size and location - Offering the sense of space typically found in the countryside, yet situated right in the center of this wonderful village of Roussillon.

The renovation process of the master house and its outbuildings here transpired over three years. The result is spectacular - Stunning interiors matched by private gardens, terraces, and a large pool overlooking gorgeous valley views.

The interiors exude the rich history of the space alongside a contemporary elegance. The amazing genuine stone staircase has been conserved, and connects the intricate layers of the home beautifully.

The kitchen, dining room, living room and two bedrooms are located on the street level. Three bedrooms are then upstairs on the second level, with yet three more on the third level with sloping ceilings and lovely views. Each of these bedrooms have air conditioning.

Walking from the street level down on the garden and pool level are two more bedrooms, a home cinema, and a second fully equipped large kitchen opening onto a sheltered terrace outdoors.

The location of this house allows one to walk to all cafés and restaurants in the village within two minutes, as well as weekly outdoor markets and grocery shops. A garage is included in the rental (2 cars) as well as 2 private parking places set 100m from the house.

This property can be available outside of the peak summer season for smaller groups requiring fewer bedrooms as well. Please inquire for pricing.

5 stars

Your testimonial:
The house is perfectly situated in town and has beautiful grounds - and we had a wonderful time staying there. The Only Provence staff in Roussillon were terrific - extremely helpful and quick to respond when we had a question or issue. The house might in some ways be more suitable for families with children - lots of space and plenty of activities on site and in the area. The bedroooms are on four floors and the steps are steep and in some places difficult to navigate particularly between the second and third floors so folks with walking issues should be made aware.

Situated in the Luberon, at the foot of the Monts de Vaucluse, the village of Roussillon is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

It is considered one of the most impressive villages in France - Roussillon is one of the "must-sees" in the Luberon, and is well worth a detour.

Roussillon - Ocres hills

Situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries.

The red, yellow and brown shades of the earth form a striking contrast with the lush green pinetrees. The vivid blue of the Provençal sky and the exceptional quality of light make this a magical site.

Roussillon - Ochre Facades

It is like an artist's pallet, with the infinite combinations of colours varying from yellow to purple with all the shades of pink and red inbetween.

Situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ochre quarries.

Roussillon - City hall

You will become acquainted with Roussillon's unique natural history while walking along the ochre pathways.

You can also learn about how the ochre is treated and used in the building industry by visiting the "Conservatoire des Ocres et des Pigments Appliqués", situated in an old ochre factory. Most impressive!

Roussillon - Inn

As soon as you arrive in the village of Roussillon, you will be charmed by its atmosphere. Take the time to stroll around the picturesque maze of streets and squares. The ochre façades of the houses are magnificent... shades vary subtly from light yellow to dark red, set off by the brightly painted shutters and doors. From the base of the village to the summit of the Castrum and its splendid view, Roussillon is a delightful place to visit!

Roussillon - Terrasse in restaurant

Numerous artists, naturally, have been seduced by Roussillon: Jean Cocteau, Carzou, Buffet, Ambrogiani... to name a few.

You will discover several art galleries and studios, and a number of excellent restaurants where you can appreciate the talent of chefs well-known throughout the region...

What to see:

Ochre cliffs. St Michel chef.

Clock tower.

Roads and façades in the village.

HQ Photographs of Roussillon.

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.
