Guesthouse Luberon

Domaine La Parpaille

From 190.59 € / per night
Situated in the heart of the Luberon, our guest house Le Domaine La Parpaille is an epicentre of Provence. Just a stone's throw from some of the region's most beautiful villages (Lourmarin, Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon), thirty minutes from Aix-en-Provence and an hour from Marseille and the Côte d'Azur, our estate is a haven of greenery and freshness. A family inheritance, this 17th-century building has been in our family since 1967. Originally a holiday home, then a meeting place for the Protestant temple of Aix-en-Provence (hence the name La Parpaille - from parpaillot, the Provencal word for Protestant), in 2009 we opened the doors of the original farmhouse to our guests. Little by little, we've expanded and perfected our style so that our home exudes well-being, la dolce vita, rejuvenation and tranquillity. With its mix of authentic and modern, bohemian and trendy, the estate's decor is tastefully designed to relax body and mind. With a soft spot for polished concrete and raw, weathered furniture. With its three swimming pools - two heated and one authentic, all in stone like a period well - the estate is sure to seduce you... With its terrace shaded by a plane tree, where you can savour the softness of the morning at breakfast... With its vast gardens, the scents of Provence wafting between lavender, lilac and jasmine... With its waterside areas to enjoy the long, beautiful summer afternoons... Or with its pretty indoor lounges, with their comfortable armchairs, numerous books and old-fashioned games and stone walls to appreciate the natural coolness provided by the thick walls of old Provencal buildings... Comprising 4 guest rooms, a suite, a loft and a gîte for 4 people, the Domaine can accommodate a large number of guests, while retaining its privacy and calm thanks to the layout of its accommodation and the size of the farmhouse and gardens. Perfect for a timeless interlude, we pay particular attention to you: the services of a luxury hotel and the simplicity and authenticity found in holiday homes... That's why we focus on those little details that make all the difference: top-of-the-range bedding and king-size beds, French-made linen and hemp sheets, a special olfactory signature for each accommodation, the beauty of raw, natural materials blended with other, refined ones: wood, iron, stone, polished concrete... And of course, the cuisine made with fresh, local, seasonal produce to tantalise your taste buds from the moment you wake up in the morning with a superb breakfast. Then, twice a week, Eve dons her apron to prepare delicious dishes, concocted with care, passion and imagination: - Wednesday evening: La Dolce Vita - a range of Italian flavours - Main courses & dessert - €35/person - Saturday evening meal : Aperitif by the pool + starter + main course + cheese + dessert - 49€/person And that's not all... Every lunchtime, if you don't want to drive the roads of Provence and would rather enjoy the estate, we also offer lunch by the pool - happy bowl or sandwich - delicacies - floral water - 25€/person. And every evening (when there's no Table d'Eve), we offer you a nomadic "cagette" to enjoy wherever you like on the estate! It consists of bread & breadsticks + spread + cheese + cherry tomatoes + fresh fruit + small biscuits - 40€/2 people.

Eve is an attentive and passionate host. From the decor to the kitchen, she pays particular attention to every detail so that you can enjoy simple & intense moments. In her own daily quest for tranquility, she ensures that her guests feel relaxed and at peace when they step through the Domaine's gates. Refined, uncluttered, bohemian & chic decor - inventive Southern cuisine using fresh, local, seasonal produce.
