Between the Luberon and Mt. Ventoux, on the edge of the quiet Medieval village of La Roque-sur-Pernes, you will find Villa la Roque. Being built on a promontory the village dominates the planes around Carpentras and has panoramic views of the legendary Mont Ventoux, famous because of the writer Frederic Mistral and as a landmark in the Tour de France cycling event.
This delightful villa has four magnificent bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor and a large open-plan dining/living area and a fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor – space and comfort for 8 people. Working in the field of interior decoration and professional florists, it comes as no surprise that your hosts have taken time and checked every minute detail. The upper level of the house is air conditioned.
The house is situated in an extensive and well established garden of olive and fruit trees. The swimming pool is surrounded by local stone paving and is complemented with a beautiful 'daybed'. There are shady terraces both front and back of the house. When the sun is high, there’s always a shady spot on one of the terraces for that al fresco lunch or siesta. The house, the pool and the garden are completely fenced-in.
The calm and tranquil beauty of this property will enchant you. Bush walkers and those who adore the outdoors will marvel at the abundance of trails that lead through these beautiful hills.
The house is 230m2. The house plan is:
Entrance hall, w.c., a large living area with fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD and internet access.
Dining area and fully equipped kitchen with fridge, microwave, dishwasher, electric oven and electric cook-top.
Off the kitchen there is a laundry with washing machine, iron and ironing board and storage shelves.

Thank you for arranging this wonderful place! Everything was great. The generously equipped very clean house with the large garden and pool gave us wonderfully relaxing vacation days. Everything is extremely lovingly designed, you immediately feel that wonderful people are working here in the background. The owners are the best landlords we have ever met on our travels. We were lovingly welcomed with joy and had lovely moments together during our stay. The area is lovely, you can hike, bike, explore markets, enjoy art and culture or just relax at home. We will definitely come back!

In short, our stay at Villa La Roque was perfect! The house is very comfortable, with a smart layout and well equipped. But it's the garden what we enjoyed the most! The peace, the aromas of the local herbs, the shadow spots for siesta and the pool of course, a perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. Gérard and Delphine are the most gracious hosts. Very responsive when we needed them and ready to help or provide advice on the local places (villages, restaurants and wineries) to visit. Big thanks to them! We absolutely loved our 2 weeks in the house, and I'd had happily stayed there the whole summer. A few more things worth mentioning: It's great that the price that was given was an all-in fee! I like simplicity, especially on holidays. So thanks for that. It's just annoying when you rent a house and then you get a separate bill for additional costs.. And the house was spotless. We had the cleaning ladies coming a few times during our stay and they were wonderful too: super efficient and kind. Looking forward to a next time at Villa La Roque!

Thank you very much for your email and that you proposed us the Villa La Roque! We enjoyed our stay so much and the owners were extremely nice for helping and giving us information in case we needed them. The house was very nice and good equipped and we had a great vacation during this time!
Sonja from Germany
We had a very good stay, the house was beautiful and functional. The outdoor space is very well laid out and very relaxing and the owners very kind. We would recommend this to friends!
Athina from France
Our stay at Villa La Roque was everything and more that we had hoped it would be, and this feedback extending also to Gerard and Delphine for the warm and generous way they welcomed us and treated us whilst guests in their property. The house and garden / pool etc was very comfortable and also well equipped, enabling us to live as we would do in our own home. It was clean and the utensils and utilities etc provided were more than adequate. Gerard also recommended restaurants and places to visit, and such reccomendations were always found to be good and worthwhile. The Vaucluse area is a truly beautiful place with magical discoveries to be made with every new village uncovered. The weather was fantastic, if only in the last few days a little too fantastic with the 44 degree heatwave that the area received. But again everything was wonderful. Our thanks to Gerard and Delphine for being great hosts, and to you for a very good and flawless organisation.

We had a great stay at this villa with our daughters and their spouses. The house met our expectations very well. The welcome from the owners was very warm, they were able to show themselves present and available while remaining very discreet.
Anne from France
Our stay at Villa La Roque went extremely well! The house is just perfect for two families, very comfortable, good clean bathrooms, very well equipped kitchen and a well laid out garden where everybody could find some quiet. The boules court was also well appreciated. But number one have to be owners Gerard and Delphine. We have never before met hosts so charming and welcoming, and thanks to them we have discovered a lot of charming out-of-the way places!
Isabelle from France
I stayed at Villa La Roque with 3 friends. The house was easily able to hold 8 persons, so we had the luxury of plenty of space. It was exceptionally clean and well furnished with things we needed upon arrival. And the most amazing and gigantic bouquet of tulips, which graced our table all week, opening more and more each day. Hairdryers in each bathroom plus a washer/dryer were a huge plus for 4 women! The bathrooms were new and modern, the kitchen was very well stocked--we cooked every night! The caretaker was available but never intrusive. We did blow a fuse one day and he popped right over to fix it. He seemed eager to make sure we had a great time. In short, we just loved everything about the house!
KB from Texas, USA
Planing and booking was top! Magnificent house, magnificent garden, magnificent pool, lovely landscape. And the caretaker, you simple have to like him: he is friendly, decent and accommodating. Best conditions for successful holidays! Danke, thank you, merci!
Petra from Austria
Thank you very much indeed for such a lovely week at Villa la Roque. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and we’re sorry we had to leave. The house was perfect in every way. Four nice bedrooms and bathrooms and downstairs was very well equipped. It had everything we needed and was very clean. We loved the pool and patio area and also enjoyed using the petanque court. But most of all thank you for your kindness and helpfulness. Meeting us, the wine and water in the fridge, sorting out the gas for the barbecue and cleaning the pool were just some of the many kindnesses. With many thanks from us all!

Duncan from Switzerland
We enjoyed our stay in Villa la Roque tremendously. It is a lovely Villa and we were welcomed with cold wine and a beautiful bunch of flowers. The caretaker was very informative re the surroundings and lovely day trips. The pool was a great hit with our group of 8 adults!
Annalize from Australia
We spent a relaxing and wonderful family week in Provence in Villa la Roque. The house is good, well equipped internally (rooms, devices...) and externally (pool...) and well maintained. Well positioned for different trips. The caretaker gives additional plus to the atmosphere. He is a very nice person, helpful but not at all interfering in the privacy. All in all, excellent week and hope we manage to come again!
Branko from Austria
We loved our stay in Villa La Roque - the house, garden and pool are beautiful and everything we needed was provided. The caretaker was friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome.
