Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Certainly not us –and we’re pretty confident that this bijou luxury villa on the Côte d’Azur offers exactly that. Nestled atop a hill, amidst woodland and olive groves, Villa Riou is the ideal romantic hideaway. Views over the nearby chateau and to the sparkling Mediterranean beyond complete this unforgettable picture.
There’s a private terrace – just the spot for an alfresco breakfast under the warmth of the sun, as well as plenty of space inside to relax including a hammam style-shower.
You’ll also have access to a shared outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, helipad and restaurants.
Despite the peace and solitude offered by Villa Riou, it’s actually located in the grounds of a top class hotel. So whenever you feel the desire to venture out from your Provençal paradise, you can make use of the world-class facilities at the luxury five star hotel nearby.
Located in the sought after Luberon, this beautiful converted stone house offers an authentic slice of Provence. Once upon a time, this idyll housed down-to-earth country folk. These day, it enjoys a new life as a world class luxury villa, courtesy of a show stopping makeover.
Grab a sun lounger, beside the outdoor pool and sip a glass of something fizzy in that famous Provençal sunshine.
Wooden beams, four poster beds and vintage décor create a classy, laid back vibe. You’d be forgiven for never setting foot outside your Provençal paradise.
But if you do decide to spread your wings, you’re perfectly placed for exploring. This luxury villa is located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Ménerbes. Just ask your concierge to arrange a tour of the local villages and markets, or hire bikes, go kayaking or take part in a classic French cookery lesson.
If you prefer to dine chez vous, you can order chef-prepared dishes to be brought to your private dining table. But Villa Mimosa is only a short walk along a little path through the vines to the top class restaurant and bar offered by the hotel. There’s also a ‘Pure Altitude Spa’. A stay at this luxury hotel villa is truly a treat for all the senses.
