If you're a traveler who loves finding hidden gems close to the tourist trail, this is the place for you! Only 30 minutes by car north of Aix-en-Provence (50 minutes by local bus), Jouques is situated at the heart of Provence: 20 minutes to the sud-Luberon, 40 minutes to the Luberon, one hour to the Cote Bleue, 45 minutes to the Gorge du Verdon plus so much more within a one-hour drive. We live on the first two floors of the house, with our own entrance from the bottom lane. We are happy to provide information on activities in the village, our favourite spots in the surrounding area as well as in nearby Aix, plus guide you to hiking trails at the edge of the village. Free community car-parking is available close by. We are native ENGLISH and French speakers.More

Interaction with guests
As we live on the property we are available 24/7 for any quest enquiries and to help and give advice whenever needed. Our rooms are on the lower levels of the house, accessed via the lower street. However guest privacy is assured as there is a separate guest entry, accessible via the laneway higher on the hillside of the village - plus the situation of guest rooms on the top levels of the house make the spaces very private.

About the neighborhood
Jouques is situated in the heart of Provence. Not only is it surrounded by forest and rural land, there are innumerable places to visit within an hour's drive. If you base yourselves here in Jouques, some examples of fantastic day trips are: les Gorges du Verdon and Lac Saint Croix; a visit to the quaint village of Moustier Saint Marie after a morning seeing the lavender fields on the Plateau of Valensole; a day visiting the famous perched villages of the Luberon; spend a whole day visiting the less known villages of the sud-Luberon amidst vineyards of Rosé grapes; or tour the factory of l'Occitane en Provence, then visit Manosque town nearby. Plus from Jouques you can take the local bus to spend a day in Aix-en-Provence, no need to drive!
Getting around
Most visitors to Provence hire a car, however, if you choose to really make the most of our 'village experience' you can simple get here by local bus from Aix-en-Provence. Once in Jouques you can enjoy walks in the forest or hire a bike, take a guided bicycle tour or walking tour in the village or countryside - it's a lovely old village to explore. There are several cafés and all the small shops you need to buy produce and French culinary specialties of the area, particularly if you love to cook and want to use our self-catering facilities (included in the room price). There is a Sunday morning market in Jouques which is always fun.
