Comfortable home in the Luberon countryside surrounded by woodlands, with beautiful views, in a pleasant area close to Saignon which is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. The main part of the building dates from the 17th century and was built as a flour mill; it has been converted into a lovely holiday home using traditional building methods and materials.
Villa Calavon sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom all with showers and toilet. From the hallway you enter the spacious living room with woodstove and the fully equipped open plan kitchen. One of the bedrooms is on ground level, with its own en suite bathroom. The utility room with washer and dryer is also on ground level. Upstairs you will find the large master bedroom with en suite bathroom and the third bedroom with its separate bathroom.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden and has a large pool with alarm system. At the front of the house a 200 year old oak tree supplies shade for leisurely lunches. All through the garden there is ample space in the sun as well as in the shade, and garden furniture and lounge chairs are supplied so that you can enjoy the Provencal weather to the fullest.
Villa Calavon is located just a few kilometers from the beautiful village of Saignon, where you'll find several restaurants, a bakery, a small convenience store and a post office. The lively town of Apt, with its shops, markets, cafes and restaurants is just a 15 minutes drive away. The cycle path to Apt is nearby.

We had a fabulous two weeks and the house was just perfect for us as a family of four. We had plenty of space to relax, the beds were so comfortable and the whole layout suited us. We made great use of the garden and pool as well as the dvd collection for film nights with the kids. We made a few visits to local markets and used the bikes every day - being so near to the cycle path was great. Lovely restaurant recommendations in the area too from Kim and Lawrie. They were both super helpful and lovely. All in all it was the perfect relaxing two week holiday and we very much hope to return in the future!

One of our best July holidays ever! Nicely situated in the middle of the Luberon, from here we made beautiful tours to all villages like Bonnieux and Gordes etc but also went to the Saturday market in Apt and the Sunday antique market in L’Isle sur la Sorgue, all is so near… As we stayed 3 weeks - which was barely enough! - we also went to Avignon, Aix en Provence and Marseille, all very nice, and we booked tickets for the opera in Orange. We still have sweet memories of our dinners under the big tree, the early morning swim sessions in the pool and, as we were lucky to have water in the nearby river, we often went there to swim too… The house stayed surprisingly cool even in high summer, i think mainly due to the old walls...

What to say more, in style renovated ‘cottage’ or farmhouse or how shall I call it… It used to be an old mill but it's hard to tell now, this is a lovely holdiday home with only nice materials used! Located very much in nature but not isolated or anything and all Luberon villages are nearby, as well of course Saignon where we went every day for croissants and pain au chocolat… Sometimes we just walked up, had a drink at Christine's and walked back, beautiful walk… We will be back soon!

As we are avid cyclists we chose this house because of the famous Luberon bicycle path, which runs close to the house. You can bike to Apt and all the way to Coustelet, Bonnieux, and Menerbes or in the other direction to Goult and Gordes, and also to Cereste, or up the hill to Castellet and Auribeau, really beautiful. We stayed here the end of June and the beginning of July, with all the lavender in full bloom, gorgeous! The house was a really nice place to come back to, first a dip in the pool, then a quick siesta, and we enjoyed our 'al fresco' dinners very much! I would highly recommend this house!

We had a great time in Provence. Everything was easy to organise and we felt that we were in very good hands.. The house was beautiful and very well equipped, particularly with regard to the kitchen. Canoeing with Kayak Vert was a highlight, as was visiting local markets. Thank you!
