On the doorstep of the Luberon National Park, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region, between fragrant scrubland and mountain tops, lies Villa Thyme, a beautifully restored 16th century home with 360-degree views. This lesser-known corner of Provence will leave an impression on all who visit, as will the generosity of the people and the variety of the gastronomy. Nearby villages like Roussillon, Bonnieux, Ménerbes and Gordes continue to charm their visitors and alongside wild landscapes, provide mere glimpses into the rich history of the area.
Villa Thyme has undergone several transformations over the years, each time increasing in beauty and comfort to visitors. The décor has been chosen to compliment the same unique spirit of the property; noble woods, oak floors, exposed stone and beams, famous tiles from the legendary Vernin factory. The harmonious Provençal garden, with the peaks of the Mont Lure on one side and the dramatic heights of the Mont Ventoux on the other, was designed to honour the natural scenery and history of the land and features a 14m x 5m swimming pool, a tennis court, boules court and delightful lavender fields.
