What we like about this house
Situation: The village of Oppède is a popular and quiet place and Oppède le Vieux enjoys a worldwide reputation for its medieval architecture in the middle of the Luberon regional park. The house is in a quiet spot with just a few neighbours in a little hamlet setting.
View: A breathtaking view of vineyards, fields, and woods and on towards Mont Ventoux.
Potential: The house requires renovation work and perhaps an additional bathroom. The garden and pool would need attention too and could become a real Eden with that great view as the background.
