Real Provencal stone house, magnificent hamlet perfectly restored, 6 ensuite bedrooms, amazing 360° view of the Luberon hills and Lure Mountain, heated swimming pool, private tennis court
In Luberon, this magnificent perfectly restored hamlet nestles in an enchanting site yet is fully preserved, with full respect for privacy. Indeed, Villa Ileana is surrounded by 40 hectares (98 acres) of grounds offering a 360° view of the Luberon hills and Lure Mountain.
This charming estate can accommodate a dozen guests with its 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It's a real Provencal stone house with heated swimming pool, private tennis court and many splendid views.
This estate is in fact a small hamlet made up of two houses: the high house or winter house, and the low house also named summer house. In total the estate counts 6 double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms.
In each house there are authentic wooden beams to the ceiling and charming tiled floors or old former wooden floors. Loving attention has been given to the interior decor: rich fabrics, refined bathrooms, varnished terracotta tiles, classic taps and faucets, antique objects hunted down, embroidered linens, Provencal tableware, etc.
High house - Winter house:
On the ground floor, there is a fully equipped, very charming Provencal kitchen with American fridge, 2 sinks, many cupboards, big oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, and dining table.
A large living room, with open fireplace, sofas, TV, DVD player, adjoins the kitchen. This is a very quiet and peaceful area, ideal to relax.
From there, a small corridor with guest WC leads to a very spacious double bedroom with full ensuite bathroom and sitting area. A second double bedroom is on this floor; this one has a full ensuite bathroom too and has been arranged with very old and beautiful furniture.
There is also a laundry room with washing machine, dryer and iron on this floor.
In the living room, narrow stairs with low beams lead to the master bedroom on the first floor. This suite is very large and has beautiful beams on the ceiling and an old wooden floor. Please note that this bedroom might not be adapted for elderly guests because of the staircase to follow.
Low house - Summer house:
From the small entrance hall, with guest WC, on the ground floor there is, to the right, a very big and luminous kitchen with many cupboards, American fridge, oven, toaster, coffee machine, 2 sinks, TV and dining table. The kitchen opens onto a large terrace with a charming view and 2 outdoor dining tables: one for 10 guests and the other for 6 guests.
A double bedroom is accessible from the entry hall too. This bedroom has an ensuite shower room but there isn't a toilet in it, thus guests sleeping there may use the guest WC in the hall.
An outdoor staircase, just beside the entrance door, leads upstairs to 2 double bedrooms both with full ensuite bathrooms and wooden beams.
The gardens, planted with respect for the past, preserve the charm of the country life of old.
Between the two houses is a terrace with an arbour and Virginia creeper, where a dining table can be added if desired.
There is a large heated swimming pool with electric cover, by there. And near the pool is a shelter for pool staff with a ping-pong table, and a pétanque court. Both the swimming pool area and pétanque court offer exceptional views of the surrounding countryside.
The tennis court sits discreetly away from the house, in the shade of the Scotch pines.
Villa Ileana is a very calm and peaceful place.

Simiane-la-Rotonde, the "city of character", is the closest village (6km) and is regarded as being one of the loveliest hill-top villages in 'Haute Provence'. Thanks to its high altitude (600-700m), the village enjoys some cool respite from the blazing hot summer sun. For many years, Simiane was the regional capital of lavender and remains an important production centre today. A traditional music festival takes place each summer from mid-July to mid-August.
Banon, the village made famous by its goat cheese wrapped in dried chestnut leaves and tied with a raffia ribbon, is located 15km away.
Each Saturday morning there is a large market in Apt, a lovely little town that also offers shops, and supermarkets and is located 19km away - about 25 minutes by car.
