Rental Description

In one of Provence’s most beautiful regions, Maison Boisée and its apartment is a stunning contemporary home for guests looking to relax in quiet surroundings yet be just a five-minute drive from the delightful Provençal town of L’Isle sur la Sorgue, near Avignon.
Architecturally beautiful, Maison Boisée offers vast space in its air-conditioned living room with elegant sofas, a fireplace, contemporary fittings and striking artwork. Large sliding windows open straight out on to the calming terrace where you can hear birds sing in the surrounding woodland as you relax with your morning coffee. The modern kitchen is brilliantly equipped whilst a delightful al-fresco dining terrace is ideal for summer evenings cooking by the plancha-barbecue.
There are three delightful bedrooms, each one with doors leading out to the gardens, as well as two en suite shower rooms and a bathroom. Furthermore, a first-floor apartment in the west wing of the house, with its own entrance, offers a fourth en suite bedroom alongside a lovely air-conditioned living area, kitchen corner and upper decked terrace.
Outside you will appreciate the tranquil ambience whether you are dipping into the large swimming pool or seeking shade in the 4000m2 of wooded grounds. Play a game of boules or ping-pong, swing in the hammock or snooze in one of the deckchairs, this is an idyllic setting in Mediterranean surroundings.
L’Isle sur la Sorgue is just 2.5km away, a charming and very picturesque town known for its many waterways and antique dealers. Enjoy long lunches by the riverside, admire the ancient water wheels and visit the famous brocante on a Sunday morning, one of the biggest in Europe. Head to the source of the Sorgue river in Fontaine de Vaucluse and canoe back to L’Isle sur la Sorgue to appreciate just how special the scenery is.
This is the gateway to so many wonderful Provençal places from Apt to Avignon and Cavaillon to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Some of the Luberon’s archetypal villages are within a short drive, activities include golf, hiking and cycling and the landscapes of vineyards, undulating hills and fields of lavender are just tremendous. This is true Provence at its very best.
Offering visual contemporary beauty alongside authentic Provençal nature, Maison Boisée is a special place in an incredible setting in this enchanting part of southern France.
The main maison is all on the ground floor (split-level with a step) whilst the one-bedroom apartment is in a separate wing of the house, accessed via an external staircase
Air-conditioning is featured in the living rooms of the main house and apartment only
Maison Boisée and Apartment is only available in July and August (and Christmas). At all other times, only the 3-bedroom main house is available to rent.
In this wonderful part of Provence, 36km east of Avignon, in a residential area and surrounded by 4000m2 of lovely woodland grounds, Maison Boisée is only 2.5km from the charming village of L’Isle sur la Sorgue. There are supermarkets, shops and a variety of lovely restaurants within a five-minute drive.
A very picturesque place to potter around, L’Isle sur la Sorgue is known as a ‘little Venice’ because of its canals and branches of the River Sorgue running through the town. There are some lovely waterside cafes and restaurants, ancient water wheels to admire and the famous Sunday morning brocante, one of the largest antique markets in Europe, alongside a Farmer’s market. The town is also filled with many antique dealers where you can hunt for all sorts of lovely bric-à-brac and old treasures.
Keen fishers can see if they can catch any trout in the river; L’Isle sur la Sorgue used to be a fishing village after all. Another wonderful trip out is to hire canoes and sail from Fontaine de Vaucluse, the source of the river, to L’Isle sur la Sorgue in a glorious setting.
There is a choice of golf courses across this part of Provence, including one a very short drive away as well as other great outdoor activities such as beautiful walking paths across the Luberon and beyond and cycling trails up the famous Mont Ventoux.
The Luberon region is home to many idyllic perched hilltop villages and glorious landscapes to explore. Highlights include Roussillon (30km), Ménerbes (20km) and one of Van Gogh’s favourite haunts, Gordes (22km), also one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Also, don’t miss the weekly Farmer’s market in Apt (35km), a town known for its candied fruit. Les Alpilles is equally as beautiful with famous villages and towns such as Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (34km) and Les Baux-de-Provence (44km).
If you are not exploring lovely vineyards across the Luberon and Les Alpilles, head towards Châteauneuf-du-Pape (30km) in southern Rhône for more fine wine from this incredible area.
The towns and cities are also brilliant places to visit; Cavaillon (15km) has a fascinating history and a wonderful market famous for its canteloupe melons in the summer whilst the cities of Avignon (36km) and Aix-en-Provence (76km) are both magnificent. Marseille (90km) is also a worthy day trip, especially around the surrounding coastline including Parc National des Calanques.
Not forgetting the Camargue Natural Regional Park, just over an hour by car, another mesmerising region of France.
