Villa Maison Marc, Venasque, Provence. Perched upon the rugged Provencal landscape, this striking modern stone tower seamlessly integrates with the Romanesque charm of the nearby town, offering a commanding vista of its surroundings.

The interior of this Provencal villa for rent is a study in gleaming modernity, characterized by architectural finesse and vibrant bursts of color. Floating staircases and designer furnishings with unique silhouettes are united by generous expanses of glass, along with touches of chrome and steel.
Meticulously designed to harmonize with its surroundings dominated by rocky sandstone formations and picturesque hilltop villages, this villa comprises four king-sized bedrooms with adjoining baths, an expansive Mediterranean garden, and a generous terrace complemented by a swimming pool. The tower is bathed in natural light, featuring windows and sliding glass doors on all sides, with three ground-floor bedrooms opening onto the garden, while the fourth bedroom on the upper level frames the breathtaking river gorge.
Each bedroom and bathroom is adorned with contemporary artwork and vibrant graphic accents. The modern kitchen offers a bar-counter workspace adorned with stylish stools and extends to a shaded alfresco dining area, as well as a glass-enclosed pool deck and view terrace that seemingly hovers above the canopy of trees.

Nestled within the medieval village of Venasque, classified as one of France's most picturesque gems, this enchanting location clings to a cliff within the mountainous terrain of Provence. The village's steep lanes wind their way to a scenic overlook known as "l'Esplanade," an elevated promenade that provides sweeping vistas stretching for miles.
This particular pocket of Provence is renowned for its vineyards, cherry orchards, and fragrant garrigues, low-lying rocky valleys adorned with aromatic shrubs. A mere 15-minute stroll or a quick drive connects you to the village of Venasque, where steep alleyways, an ancient church, a baptistry, and robust fortified tower gates have earned their accolades in books, magazines, and travel guides as a must-visit, off-the-beaten-path destination. Cafes, restaurants, a handful of boutique shops, and a weekly market cater to your needs.
Outdoor enthusiasts will revel in the abundance of activities, from hiking and cycling to mountain biking and foraging in the Monts de Vaucluse parklands. For those seeking city amenities, Avignon and Carpentras offer a comprehensive array of gastronomy, nightlife, museums, and historical monuments, providing all the comforts of larger cities.
