Bordering Italy and the Mediterranean Sea and scattered with rolling vineyards, pine forests, lavender fields and olive groves, Provence is a truly magical part of south-eastern France.
Provence has something for everyone. From the glamour and glitz of exclusive towns like Saint Tropez and Cannes, to ancient hilltop villages where time seems to stand still, the cultural and scenic diversity of Provence is second to none.
If you’re heading to Provence and are looking for somewhere exceptional to wine, dine and sleep among the vineyards, take a look at these three high-quality Vintage Travel villas.
Le Gustave is a pretty, two-bedroom cottage nestled amidst the olive trees in the heart of the Luberon, not far from the charming hilltop village of Gordes.
This quaint country house is delightfully rustic with a stone-clad façade and pretty, pastel blue shutters around the windows. The cottage has been tastefully restored so it combines striking traditional features with modern comforts.
Le Gustave’s exterior is as inviting as its interior, with a vine-covered terrace looking across the olive groves, the cottage’s private pool and to the emerald hills in the distance.
The mesmerising town of Gordes is just 4km from Le Gustave and the smaller village of Les Imberts is just 1.1km from the house.
