Villa overview - owner's description

The story began with a dream… the dream of a family who discovered three old stone hamlets in the beautiful Luberon and who decided to restore them.

The story began with a dream… the dream of a family who discovered three old stone hamlets in the beautiful Luberon and who decided to restore them, to plant organic vines and fruit trees and to nurture the land with great love and respect.
The result is three beautifully restored stone hamlets spread out across 40 hectares of rolling hills and typical Provencal landscape. Le Hameau de l'Horizon, Villa Les Terrasses and Le Hameau du Berger.

Le Hameau du Berger is a high quality, beautifully preserved hamlet with two heated swimming pools, tennis court and spa, nestled in the unspoilt Luberon Valley under the watchful eye of the picturesque village of Viens. Here it's all about nature, peace and extraordinary calm.

The hamlet is set in 20 hectares surrounded by unspoilt landscape of rolling hills, bright limestone and fragrant, flowering heath with charming gardens designed by Jean-Noel Capart, which are a pleasure to stroll through on route to pool or tennis court.

The estate is made up of three houses and brings together the charm of the past with every modern comfort and luxury.

The ‘large house' has three beautifully furnished terraces, six en-suite bedrooms, large living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace, a sitting room and a large kitchen with dining area. It has its own swimming pool and boules pitch and entrance halls.

The ‘pink house' has lovely terraces, with one off the bedroom opening out to a stunning view over the landscape, three en-suite bedroom, large living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace, a sitting room s and a large Provencale kitchen.

The ‘bergerie' was the home of the last shepherd of the original hamlet and it will delight guests with its cosy and charming warmth. The magnificent fireplace marks the centre of the house and the ground floor bedroom provides access to the garden and second swimming pool. It has three en-suite bedrooms, living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace and a kitchen and lovely terrace.

In addition, Le Hameau du Berger, also has a magnificent barn available for hosting events.

Le Hameau du Berger is an exceptional estate offering peace and quiet and a real feeling of being at one with nature and this truly beautiful part of France.

Location

Viens is an ancient village with a medieval atmosphere boasting many original features including the clock tower and the two Maisons de Monier. It is located on the border of the Alpes-de-Haute Provence, the heart of the Luberon and surrounded by beautiful lavender fields, providing you with boundless activities and attractions for all the family.

Within the Luberon National park the charming villages and beautiful scenery offer an ideal setting for hiking, cycling, and even kayaking along the Sorgue. Many of the quint hilltop villages have maintained their original features with castles, caves and historical artefacts to discover, including one of the most spectacular at La Tour d'Aigues which still has its dungeons. Other activities include the Barben Zoo, Accrobranche and horse-riding.

The town of Apt, with its sprawling weekly market each Saturday and Tuesday is an unmissable trip: a gem full of charm and tradition with winding streets and ancient fountains. Indulge in the local cuisine and delicacies in one of the many pavement cafes with views of the Luberon and sweet smelling lavender surround you.

Le Hameau de l'Horizon is also within close driving distance of the archetypal Provencal villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes and Roussillon. Famous Avignon, the capital of Provence, and Aix-en-Provence, one of France's most beautiful university towns, are only about 1hr30mins away from this gorgeous hamlet.
