A house in the Luberon valley


Les Chênes Verts

Les Chênes Verts is a stone house in the Luberon Valley which has been completely renovated throughout.  Accommodation comprises of 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, large kitchen, utility room, spacious sitting room and dining room. The house is detached in landscaped grounds with a heated swimming pool and views of the Luberon mountains.  It is situated on the outskirts of a small, quiet village called Cabrieres d'Avignon.  The 'golden triangle' of Gordes, Menerbes and Bonnieux and the picturesque villages of Lacoste, Goult and Rousillion are only a few minutes drive away.


Cabrieres d'Avignon

Cabrieres d'Avignon is a small, quiet and authentic village favoured by families and locals, with medieval honey coloured stone houses.  The village has its own bakery, butcher, newsagent, post office and restaurant - all just seven or eight minutes walk from the house.  There is a cedar forest, Les Cedres, for walking or cycling just a short walk away, where there is a bar, restaurant and live music on some summer evenings. Cabrieres d'Avignon is a five minute drive from the famous hilltop village of Gordes in one direction, and the same distance from Coustellet in the opposite direction, which while less picturesque, has all the amenities you may need during your stay - supermarket, petrol station, restaurants and a bank.
