Hello, my name is Eric!

Bédoin, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Bonjour, nous sommes un couple de Californie qui habitons désormais en Provence.

Welcome to “Les Maquinols Estate” Your Oasis of Charm and Tranquility in the Heart of Provence.

We are from Topanga, which is part of Malibu in Los Angeles County, California. We've decided to move to France in 2016. It took a while to settle but here we are.

We love our beautiful home in Provence. We own it since 2003. We appreciate meeting new interesting people with a good spirit and a great sense of humour to exchange ideas and share experiences.

Of course and if you prefer complete privacy, you are invited to be independent and be left alone to do as you please :) The property and privacy makes it possible.

Property is 2 minute walking distance to the village through a private path from the property and is ideal for families, couples or cycling and biking person or groups featuring 5000m2 of secluded land yet a short stroll takes you to dine at over a dozen restaurants for all budgets, also bars, shopping, circus, arts & crafts fairs, sporting events and concerts from April to October.

Situé à Bédoin, l’un des plus réputés villages de France. Une oasis de charme et de tranquillité. Des vues à couper le souffle sur le célèbre Mont Ventoux, l'un des paradis des vrais cyclistes et une région viticole extraordinaire : Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Beaumes-de-Venise, Ventoux, etc.

Proche du village à pied, il y en a pour 2 min un des points positifs de la propriété. Plus de 15 restaurants et shopping à deux pas par le chemin communal.

All around Bédoin are a multitude of picturesque Provencal villages, landmarks such as the Palais des Papes, markets, arts and crafts as well as more than 18 Relais & Chateaux such as the Château de Rochegude all within 30 miles, beautiful properties transformed into culinary gastronomic heavens.

The drive to Avignon theatre, arts and music festivals takes approx. 35 minutes. Marseille airport is about 1h15 away.

The backdrop to the house is the stunning views of the mountain with vineyards, cherry orchards, olive groves and fields of lavender providing wonderful walking and cycling from your doorstep.

This is a nature lovers and birdwatchers paradise. We are surrounded by fields, forests and nestled upon hills and cliffs overlooking the village and the famous Mont Ventoux yet just a short walk to the village.

In addition, there are hikes, easy walks and strolls with more than 4000 kilometers of hiking paths and trails crossing Mont Ventoux to the Luberon Hills. You will come across typical stone villages, with an inviting cool stream or red ochre hills surrounded by ancient cypress trees, which characterise the region, and fertile plains perfumed with the scents of Provence.

Horse riding: For experienced riders who want to ride through the countryside on their own there are immense possibilities on a wide network of marked trails. Canoeing and Kayaking: Vaucluse is the home of beautiful waterways.

The Sorgue River and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse are oasis of cool water on a hot summer day, you can even paraglide from Le-Barroux.
