Le Point is a small charming and comfortable artist's house in the unspoilt village of Cucuron which lies inside the Luberon Nature Park in the Provence region of the south of France, 35Km north of Aix-en-Provence.

Cucuron has many original medieval features to explore and a traditional market on Tuesdays around the bassin (large carp pond) and square which is shaded by towering, 200-year-old plane trees. The village includes a cooperative wine cellar where local wines can be tasted and where a walking trail starts and you can discover the wine-growing activity around the area from a historical standpoint.

It is located half way between Avignon and Aix and makes an ideal base for exploring Provence or just to relax and unwind at any time of the year. There is riding or hiking from the village up into the Luberon and scenic lake swim...

Wonderful little hideaway in the storybook Provencal village of Cucuron. The previous reviewer described it perfectly...white washed stone walls and ceilings, challenging staircase and an adorable hand painted trompe l' oeil mini-bedroom. Roomy, fully functional kitchen/dining/living area upstairs, bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen has a wonderful little balcony with THE BEST view of the countryside. The owners are friendly and respond...

The cottage was all we had hoped for. The photos give a good impression of it. The bottom floor is really interesting with a domed, whitewashed stone roof over the main bedroom which has one of the most comfortable and roomy beds we have ever experienced in a holiday rental. There is a small bedroom leading off the main one...

My daughter and I were looking for a quiet village as a base for exploring the Luberon region and Cucuron was a perfect location. We loved the village; it is small enough to be fairly peaceful but still had most of what we needed. Every morning we had coffee by the small pond before starting our travels, excepts market day...

About the neighborhood
Cucuron is a small unspoilt village situated at the foot of the southern slopes of the Luberon range. It is still almost entirely agricultural, and is surrounded by some fields of wheat and fruit trees, but increasingly with the advent of the appellation for Côtes du Luberon, by vineyards. A special feature of the village is the old carp pond surrounded by plane trees where the weekly market is held on Tuesdays. It was featured in the 2005 film A Good Year in ProvenceThe local tourist office in Cucuron has good information and maps of walks and mountain bike routes on the Luberon. The Etang de la Bonde three miles away is a popular bathing lake, suitable for adults and small children, and there is an excellent swimming pool open in the summer at the nearby town of Pertuis (divided into a s... more

Cucuron is a good base for walking, the village has everything you need to stay if you want a relaxing holiday. However the countryside is beautiful and a rental car will allow you to explore the villages around and drive down to the coast if you want to go further afield.
