Lulled by the cicadas and slightly light-headed from the heat of the sun, one can be tempted to do nothing but admire the authentic beauty and the tranquillity of the area at Villa Stelina, as the British author said, “Nowhere in the world can one do so little and gain so much pleasure”.
Area & Experiences
At the end of the 1980s, an English writer tired of the harsh climate came to live in the Luberon, a small Provencal mountain located between Aix-en-Provence and Avignon. Looking for a new subject, he would be inspired by his new everyday live and set to describing the dry land, the traditional markets and the pleasures of a life in the sun that Pagnol and Giono told of before him. A few years later “A Year in Provence” appeared and it was the beginning of a literary success that would last over a decade.
The mainly English audience adored the landscapes that Peter Mayle detailed in his books, places similar to the wine varieties of Ménerbes and similar vineyards that line a dry land that cross a rocky path. If one takes such a path, it leads to the property by passing under a jagged arch cut out of an old wall covered with climbing plants. This wall borders a swimming pool and a terrace surrounded by pine trees and lavender plants.
