Located in the Alpes de Hautes Provence, on the border of the Vaucluse, this private villa is equidistant between Avignon and Aix en Provence, two fascinating cities rich in magnificent art and architecture. During the summer months, thousands gather for the renowned performing arts festival in Avignon and the music festival in Aix which attracts the best musicians from around the world. As you climb over a trail of bright red ochre, past windswept pine trees, the view suddenly opens onto a stunning panorama of rolling countryside and endless mountain peaks, the foothills of the Alps in the distance. Villa Sage, nestled on the hillside, is in a perfect position to take in the views. Surrounded by lush greenery and organic farmland, enjoy local excursions to essential oil ateliers where artisans will introduce you to the products and their reported healing properties. Alternatively, you could go for long walks in the dramatic Gorges d'Oppedette or visit nearby Viens to discover one of the oldest villages in France.
