Luberon country house with pool — Nestled at the foot of the Southern Luberon mountains within a large wine estate, this splendidly restored 17th century chateau exudes charm throughout and boasts stunning views over the valley and surrounding vineyards; all within just two miles of the typical Provencal village of Tour d'Aigues.
Tastefully decorated and furnished with a blend of country antiques and period furniture, Chateau la Dorgonne maintains a strong Provencal identity. Original paintings, an 18th century tapestry, open fireplaces and typical polished floor-tiles all convey a genuine Provencal atmosphere. The beautiful landscaped garden has an abundance of scented lavender, pink laurels and rose bushes, with century-old trees provide pleasant shaded areas. And what better way to relax than lounging by the pool or enjoying a drink on the terrace overlooking the valley and hills of the Luberon National park!
There are delightful medieval villages scattered throughout the national park, many of them perched on rocky hilltops and centered around an ancient castle or tower. Tour d'Aigues, on the banks of the River Eze, is the nearest to Chateau la Dorgonne and a very pretty one too. Venture a little further within the Luberon area to discover the remarkable gems that contribute to the region's unique fame and appeal.
