Set in extensive grounds with broad expanses of lawn and an abundance of mature shrubs and trees, Villa Venaissin is ostensibly a traditional stone farmhouse, complete with painted shutters and gently sloping tiled roof. A closer look reveals a clever restoration using high quality natural materials, from rich white oak to tactile slate, creating a stunning luxury home.
On the ground floor, imposing solid wood double doors lead into a spacious yet cosy lounge with an exposed stone feature wall, rustic tables and huge sofas to sink into. A separate games room offers plenty of competitive entertainment with a bar, pool table, football table and air hockey as well as a projector screen for you to stage your own movie night over a few drinks.
Those looking for a more soothing activity will love the sauna and Jacuzzi room where you can relax and improve your sense of wellbeing with state-of-the-art facilities.
The magnificent kitchen and dining area takes full advantage of a beautiful vaulted ceiling and double height windows to draw the outside in. The deliberately unfitted style, with a striking timber and iron island unit and painted dressers adds to the air of relaxed chic while the eye-catching lighting is very much ‘on trend’. Two modern slate-topped dining tables allow for flexible dining inside, however there is also an outside dining table for those long, leisurely alfresco lunches.
Each of the eight double or twin bedrooms has its own well-appointed en suite bath or shower room. Two are conveniently located on the ground floor while the other six are on the first floor and enjoy lovely views over the garden and surrounding countryside. Each one is individually styled, from Hollywood glamour to rustic charm and all are provided with silky soft bedding and fluffy towels.
Outside, a thoughtfully designed roof canopy creates perfect shading for a wonderful patio area with contemporary rattan lounge seating and an outside bar for ice cold beverages at any time of the day. The gas barbecue is an essential tool for chilled out lunches and sociable suppers. Sleek sun loungers are positioned alongside the spectacular saltwater pool (heatable on request and paid for in advance), flanked by timber decking and sporting a delightful water feature at one end. A whitewashed wall along one side creates a real sun trap while the oversized planters and huge pebble lights add a quirky, ultra-modern touch.
Among the house’s outdoor facilities are a boules pitch and table tennis table and with gorgeous walking territory in the surrounding countryside there’s plenty to keep more active guests busy.
Just 5 kms away is the exquisite town of Isle sur la Sorgue, known as an ‘island city’ due to branches of the River Sorgue passing on different sides. Its medieval streets are criss-crossed with canals and the 17th and 18th century architecture is a delight. Antiques lovers will be in seventh heaven with over 300 dealer shops in and around the town while the twice weekly local produce markets are a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
It’s only a 45 minute drive to the lovely city of Avignon and there are dozens of other hamlets and towns to explore across this picturesque region.
Villa Venaissin is undoubtedly a great choice for a very special holiday with friends or family and comes highly recommended. Please note during the months of July and August the owner will only accept a two week booking.
