Ah, Provence: such a magical, inviting place. We love the South of France, and try to go as often as we can. You know you’ve arrived, when the landscape turns reddish and rugged and the scent of lavender fills the air.
Last summer, we went to the Luberon which is of course an area of outstanding natural beauty and charm. But it’s where we stayed that made it even more special!
Set in a national park in-between Murs and Joucas, a tiny shepherd’s hut, that we nicknamed ‘Le Petit Cabanon’, became our home for two weeks. A one-bedroom cottage in a secluded area boasting stunning views over the Luberon Valley – and that is no exaggeration.
The cottage comprises a living room and well-equipped kitchen area downstairs, and a double bedroom upstairs with an ensuite bathroom. Outside is a covered patio area where you can cook and eat plus a tiny conservatory for evening or bad-weather dinning. There is also a plunge pool for cooling off after enjoying the warm sunshine on wooden sunloungers. A slice out of heaven!
Nestled in the mountainside, this location offers peace and complete privacy. It’s a true escape from the fast-paced world we live in.
But, with Murs just down the road, you can walk to the local restaurants and bar plus visit the local (well-stocked) shop for any essential groceries that you may have forgotten. They sell everything from wine to soap!
I could tell you where this is, but only if you ask nicely ;0) Send me an email if you want to know more.
