  • Description

    This beautiful and authentic Luxury Provencal villa rental in Venelles has been restored according to its original size and form, and is quietly situated in a 10-acre pine and oak forest. Exquisite gardens, complete with vibrant flowerbeds, vines, old trees, and olive groves, provide the guest with a perfect venue for an elegant vacation escape. For recreation, La Maison Bon Temps offers a sumptuous swimming pool, tennis court, children's play area, and extensive well-kept lawn. The villa occupies a beautiful site and is located just 15 minutes from Aix-en-Provence in the Pinchinat area, known for its elegant summer homes, farmhouses and chateaux. A private road leads to the terraced gardens and tree-lined path up to the property. The property evokes a sense of balance and harmony, with gentle colors and exceptional comfort. It can accommodate about 10 adults and 4 children, with various areas for active and quiet activities, according to one's desire.

    The guardian takes care of exterior maintenance, and his wife, Francoise, does the housework. Upon request Francoise can take care of washing and ironing at 12euros/hour. They live on the property year-round in a separate house, away from the main house.

    The nearest village, Venelles, which is 3 kms away, has grocery stores, banks and a Provençal market on Saturday morning.

    Included in the rental price: Linens, pool and garden maintenance, and all utilities

    Please note: There is a two-week minimum rental.






    The reception/communal rooms of La Maison Bon Temps are spacious, elegantly furnished and comfortable. The living room, reading area and billiard room flow from one to the other, each with beautiful picture windows opening out to the terraces. The functional, bright, and very well equipped kitchen, (oven, stove, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer), leads both to an indoor dining room and to a sunny, wind-sheltered terrace, where one can enjoy meals spring through autumn, and even in the winter on mild days. On the second floor you will find the independent Master bedroom (queen bed) with complete bathroom (toilet, bathtub, shower). This bedroom is slightly extended over the garden, facing the pool, and has a private terrace. Also on the second floor are: Children's dormitory with two sets of bunk beds, sink in room, toilet in hall, and two additional bedrooms, one with a double bed and shower and the other with a queen bed and complete bathroom,(bathtub, shower).

    In the tower, like a separate third floor, is a large bedroom (queen bed) with a shower and a fabulous view of Mont Ste. Victoire.

    Off to the side in the garden is a guesthouse with one bedroom with double bed, shower and toilet.



    Perched on a rock, Venelles is a small village near Aix en Provence. After Mimet, it has the highest altitude in the Department of the Bouches du Rhône. Venelles witnessed significant development during the 19th century, with the construction of numerous chateaux and large residences at the time. The beauty of its countryside, its proximity to Aix and the quality of its properties have attracted a largely middle-class population.

    While wandering around Venelles, you will have a magnificent view of the countryside, the Durance valley and Mount Sainte Victoire, particularly from the look-out point at the "Place du Château". You can also see the Luberon, "la chaîne de l'Etoile" and the Sainte-Baume.

    Sign-posted walking trails lead you through a beautiful pine-forest and for history lovers, an interesting series of oratories waits to be discovered. Don't miss the Venelles le Haut church, or the works of F. Chabaud, a 19th century sculptor who has left an important collection of works.
