Overview

The house was known as “The Old Inn” from 1557 to 1917. It was originally built during the 12th and 13th centuries, renovated during the 14th and 15th centuries and finally entirely modernized in 2010. This old private town house with its Renaissance facade offers its guests modern comfort and luxury in century old surroundings.

You can access the house by walking through a small alley and entering through the gate entrance. A stone spiral staircase leads each guest to four private luxury suites, one on each floor. A hidden panoramic terrace overlooking L’Isle sur la Sorgue awaits you at the top of the staircase. Each evening at sunset, a magical display of colors is set forth before your eyes.

For your enjoyment, there is a Jacuzzi on the terrace and a heated current swimming pool on the ground floor. For the real nature lovers a refreshing dip in the Sorgue River located at the foot of the guesthouse is always possible. The Southern façade of the house is bordered by the Arquet, a branch of the Sorgue River, which gives the house an enjoyable coolness during the summer.

Courtyard

A hundred year old olive tree stands at the centre of this beautiful stone paved courtyard surrounded by vegetation and aromatic plants. A fountain lined with jasmine, two large camellias, two cypresses, hydrangeas and a Karl Springer round stone table welcomes you for breakfast when it suits you.

By the river banks, enjoy a quiet pause on the footbridge located between the dining room and the kitchen to contemplate the 'Arquet' creek (branch of the Sorgue river), the view being a living work of art in and of itself. Watch the wild ducks entertain you during breakfast as you sit at the bistro table overlooking the stream.

The pool is heated both in summer and winter, and is partially covered; two thirds is an indoor pool and the remaining third a heated open-air pool. This counter- current swimming pool (9 m x 3 m) has been designed to allow guests to swim in place and do water aerobics or to relax after a long day of sight-seeing in the Provence region.

At the very top of the spiral staircase, a metal door opens onto two amazing terraces.

The first terrace is spacious and has a dining area and small kitchen under a pergola where you can lounge and relax amongst pink laurel bushes. Further away, under a veranda is the oversized Jacuzzi. Enjoy moments of deep relaxation in this oversized, heated Jacuzzi under an open veranda on the roof top terrace.

The second terrace is above the tower and is used as a solarium. It is accessible by a narrow ladder called in French an “échelle meunière” (a typical steep ladder with open-backed treads). From there you can admire the panoramic view:

Views

  • To the North: the Dentelles de Montmirail and the Mont Ventoux
  • To the East: Vaucluse’s plateau, the collegiate Church and the Luberon region
