Large family estate with ample grounds and interior space located between Aix and Lourmarin, at the foot of the Luberon Mountains. Ideal for large families or groups of friends - just 2 minutes from a lively stone village.

If peace and space away from it all are your goals, Bastide de Caireval is a perfect place for you. A vast country house with impressive grounds and space to enjoy the company of a large group or retreat into a quiet corner.

Tucked in amongst the trees of the valley, this property offers peaceful privacy in an ideal location for exploring Inland Provence. As an authentic Bastide recently renovated, there is a lovely combination of a true countryside experience mixed with modern comforts.

Sip your morning coffee in the shade of the great Platane trees, enjoy a cool beverage in the sun by the pool, or a rousing game of tennis beside the olive grove. This is a property fit for enjoying all that Provence has to offer.

Rognes is a lovely community 20 minutes north of Aix-en-Provence. Located halfway between the sophisticated Roman city of Aix and the entry to the Luberon Mountain region, Rognes has a real country feel with rolling hills, a stone village, and different flowers and fields for every season. The landscape is sumptuous with the vineyards of the 10 surrounding wineries.

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.
