It also has a Provencal garden and heated swimming pool, all in the heart of a small village at the foot of the Luberon hills. The village of Maubec has many small shops (grocery, baker, restaurant) and just up the road there are supermarkets in Coustellet (4km) and Cavaillon (10km). This property makes the perfect base for a truly memorable luxury holiday in France.

Combining the main house and guesthouse, there are 250 sqm of living area.

And there are two other double bedrooms on the first floor, both with en-suite bathrooms but one is with wooden floor and has separate WC, while the other has tile floor and has been thus decorated that it creates an Arabian atmosphere.
