Contact Agent

Spacious 6 bedroom villa with private pool, hot tub and large enclosed grounds. Views of Luberon Mountains and vineyards. Walking distance from restaurants, bars and shops. 10 minutes’ drive from Apt.

Overview

Villa Les Vanels enjoys a sunny south-facing aspect with a u-shape layout around the spacious pool. This, along with a mature hedge to the front, offers a good deal of privacy and shelter for the pool and surrounding sun terrace.
On the first floor the sun terrace offers some wonderful views across the local vineyards, orchards and distant Luberon mountain range. This is a wonderful place to come and stay for a relaxing break right on the edge of the much admired Luberon region.
The very well-equipped summer kitchen is a real delight. Located right beside the pool it has the additional benefit of having a large and relaxing sheltered corner area. Clients tend to spend a lot of time in the summer kitchen cooking delicious meals, whilst watching the children playing in the pool or simply enjoying the views.
With the market town of Apt only 10 minutes’ drive away, a couple of supermarkets at just 1.5 km and a track from the house that takes you to the village of Villars with restaurants, bars and shops in 20-30 minutes on foot, one could say that everything is on your doorstep!
This recently renovated and attractive property can comfortably accommodate ten people (and on request up to twelve people, 10 adults and 2 children maximum, at an additional charge).

Property size: 260m².

Mr V Jul 2018

’Grandiose house, good beds, plenty of crockery, glasses and cutlery. Outside very comfortable seats. Lots to see in the area, lots to walk. Nice restaurants.’

Mrs R Aug 2017

’Everything was fine when we arrived. Beautiful surroundings, beautifully situated house with everything available. We enjoyed the outdoor kitchen which is an unprecedented luxury. Lots of equipment, everything is there. Swimming pool was cleaned early every morning. Only downside was the fairly weak wifi which made downloading newspapers or other larger files very slow.’

Agency From Kendal, United Kingdom Member since Sep 2015

I was born and brought up in Nice and spent most of my holiday youth in Provence, Aquitaine and Brittany. This has helped tremendously understand what is important about each region of France, what makes a property special and how best to promote it. If a property makes it to our range it simply means that the background work and checks have been carried out and that I am happy to send clients there. As a matter of fact I have holidayed in many of our villas of the years! Having worked in the holiday rental sector for twenty years for Tour Operators and Travel Agencies including French Life Holidays, Rent Villas France and for the last seven years at Select Villas this has allowed me to gain a great deal of experience and knowledge in the wonderful world of holiday property letting across France. I understand how important client's holidays are and this is why I want to ensure that all villas in our range are visited either by myself or by one of the trusted local agents we work with. Clients can therefore book their holiday with peace of mind knowing that the property they will stay in has been vetted, that they can book with confidence and enjoy their special time in France.
