Let us paint a picture for you. Clouds of lavender, cicadas in the olive trees, a sea of vines, and Medieval hilltop villages. Yes, Villa Mimosa is true Gallic country living, and in luxurious style and comfort. This rustic stone cottage sits within the grounds of a five star hotel in the Luberon, a picturesque corner of Provence.
Let your dedicated housekeeper take care of this beautiful converted stone house whilst you relax with a glass of something fruity in the shady arbour. This idyllic escape may once have housed simple country folk, but it’s now a first class villa with a host of modern comforts. Spend lazy days beside the heated outdoor pool, basking in the Provencal sunshine. Relax and read a book amongst the ancient beams, four poster beds and vintage chic décor of Villa Mimosa.
Sitting on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Ménerbes, Villa Mimosa is totally self-contained. And yet it is just a short walk to the first class facilities and charms of the hotel. Perhaps you might make use of the hotel’s restaurant and bar, savouring gourmet cuisine under the stars on the terrace, then follow a little path through the vines, through the fragrant night air back to your cottage.
Alternatively, you might order chef-prepared dishes to be brought to your private dining table, like room service but better. Whatever your plans, you really should indulge in a massage or beauty treatment at the luxurious hotel spa. Suitably relaxed, you might like to explore the local villages and markets, hire bikes, go kayaking or take part in a cookery lesson. Your concierge service is on hand to make all your arrangements, leaving you free to just switch off.
Villa Mimosa really is a treat for the senses. Surrounded by a fusion of French country chic and vintage treasures, you will be inspired to re-decorate once you get home. The scent of Mediterranean flowers and wild herbs will linger in your memories, as will the earthy flavours of the regional wine, produced from the expanse of vineyards all around.
