Villa Voltaire is located in southern France in the heart of the Provence region between Avignon and Apt, inside the Calavon valley at the foot of the Luberon mountains. It is a uniquely beautiful site, with panoramic, 360 degree views, framed by 500-800 year-old olive trees and with sculpturally gnarled trunks.
The manor house has foundations dating back to 1740 and has been extended and updated over time. Renovations in the traditional style (stone walls) have taken into account its historic background.
The house is surrounded by agricultural land and sits in the midst of a spacious, ornamental garden containing fruit trees, truffle oaks, culinary herbs, roses, lavender, a playground and a shaded area.
Villa Voltaire is a beautiful place to enjoy the Provence and the Luberon region with its unspoilt scenery, the colours of the sunset after the mistral wind has blown during the day, the clean air, the dry heat in summer time, the fields of lavender, sunflowers and the poppies in the cornfields.
The Villa has the perfect location to reach easily the most interesting cities like Avignon, Nice, Marseille, Saint-Tropez, Grasse in the Provence. It takes a day trip or a half day trip to visit these places..
