About Shepherd's Hamlet

The story began with a dream… the dream of a family who discovered three old stone hamlets in the beautiful Luberon and who decided to restore them, to plant organic vines and fruit trees and to nurture the land with great love and respect.

The result is three beautifully restored stone hamlets spread out across 40 hectares of rolling hills and typical Provençal landscape. They are each set about 7km apart from each other.

Shepherd's Hamlet is a high quality, beautifully preserved cluster of stone houses with two heated swimming pools, tennis court and spa, nestled in the unspoilt Luberon Valley under the watchful eye of the picturesque village of Viens. Here it’s all about nature, peace and extraordinary calm.

The hamlet is set in 20 hectares surrounded by unspoilt landscape of rolling hills, bright limestone and fragrant, flowering heath with charming gardens designed by Jean-Noël Capart, which are a pleasure to stroll through en route to the pool or tennis court.

The estate is made up of three houses and brings together the charm of the past with every modern comfort and luxury.

The ‘large house’ has three beautifully furnished terraces, six en-suite bedrooms, large living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace, a sitting room and a large kitchen with dining area. It has its own swimming pool and boules pitch and entrance halls.

The ‘pink house’ has lovely terraces, with one off the bedroom opening out to a stunning view over the landscape, three en-suite bedroom, large living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace, a sitting room and a large Provençale kitchen.

The ‘bergerie’ was the home of the last shepherd of the original hamlet and it will delight guests with its cosy and charming warmth. The magnificent fireplace marks the centre of the house and the ground floor bedroom provides access to the garden and second swimming pool. It has three en-suite bedrooms, living room and dining room with magnificent fireplace and a kitchen and lovely terrace.

In addition, Shepherd's Hamlet also has a magnificent barn available for hosting events.

The property is an exceptional estate offering peace and quiet and a real feeling of being at one with nature and this truly beautiful part of France.

Great for babies, kids and teenagers.
