About Paolo De Paolis
We are mainly British, we live and work in Oppede, which is 10 minutes from Menerbes where the house is situated.
Paolo De Paolis purchased this House in 1997
Why Paolo De Paolis chose Ménerbes
It was sitting there at the top of Menerbes with the best views in the village but hardly any windows to see them from. It was the village notary's office so views were not important. In renovating I added big windows everywhere and made it into a home.
What makes this House unique
The view! And being in a wonderful village with all amenities, but tucked away at the top so it is quiet and inspiring

Beautiful spot in the Luberon
This home is exactly as it looks on-line except more charming than a website can show. We had everything we needed for our stay including a great kitchen, two master suites, a wonderful collection of DVDs and best of all amazing views of the beautiful Luberon. Menerbes is a very quiet village in October, but it is the perfect spot for exploring the region whether you like hiking or visiting other villages. Even the Super U is close by, which made cooking at home easy.
We were sad to leave such a magical spot!
Merci mille fois!
Lovely Provençal house with character
This property really surpassed our expectations. The house is well designed, beautifully decorated, very clean and every little detail is taken care of. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in Ménerbes and Paolo's restaurant recommendations were spot on!
Views to soothe a soul!
We loved our stay here. The town is very quiet at this time of the year and not much open but the peace and quiet were very restorative. The home is nicer than we imagined! The views are mesmerizing! Highly recommend!
Amazing views, wonderful location, good facilities
We had a lovely week in Menerbes at Paolo's house. The views from the house are incredible. We enjoyed watching the morning mist rolling down the valley and the evening sunsets. The autumn colours were spectacular! We'd never been to Provence off season before and found it a lot quieter and more relaxing. Menerbes was ideally positioned to see the Luberon villages. We had wonderful days in Lacoste, Bonnieux and Rousillion. A morning visit (before the crowds) to Fountain de la Vacluse was a highlight of the trip. We found plenty of local restaurants open though some were shut this was not a problem. St Remy a short drive away was fun on Halloween night with all the local children running around collecting sweets from the shops. Paolo was very helpful during our stay and the facilities at the house were great.
Home away from home....only better!!
My husband and I, along with a good friend and her daughter spent an amazing week in Menerbes at the end of September. Everything about the Provence area surpassed our expectation, including Paolo’s Beautiful property. Every detail in the design and decoration of this apartment was perfect, comfortably modern but at the same time maintaining its old world charm. We had beautiful weather and loved opening the large windows and feeling like we were part of the outdoors.....the view was better than the pictures show. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed in this apartment. I would love to return for a longer stay in the future. The local markets offered an abundance of cheeses, meats, olives and fish and we wished we had more time to cook meals and just hang out. It really was the perfect experience!
House at the top of Menerbes
This must be one of the prime properties in Menerbes. It is ideal for 4 people and has all the facilities you need. It feels like a home and not a holiday let. The views are unobstructed and extremely beautiful. Everything is well set up and the owner is very helpful. His instructions for getting there and gaining access were fantastic. We spent a month there and used it as a base to explore the Luberon and beyond. We found lovely walks in the foothills of the Luberon mountain which we enjoyed in the early morning as it was too hot to walk later in the day. Walking around the town in the evening was also very pleasant. We were all very sad to leave.
