A bastide in the pure spirit of Provence
IT IS A PLEASURE TO STROLL FROM ONE TERRACE TO ANOTHER TO ENJOY THE FLAMBOYANT NATURE THAT SHELTERS THE BASTIDE LOCATED ON 4 HECTARES OF WOODED LAND.
Reminiscent of the spirit of the region’s troglodyte houses, the main building, built entirely of local cut stone on three levels, literally blends into the natural setting, so much so that it gives the impression of having emerged from the ground without human intervention.
The terraced landscaped gardens provide a visual space for the vegetation, which is not contradicted by anything.
In the shade of the large, century-old, listed trees of great variety – pines, olive trees, white oaks, holm oaks, spruces – which provide welcome coolness and shelter for the birds, the house with its blue shutters gives pride of place to the mineral; its stone walls and its round tile roof are in harmony with a chromatic range from pastel pink to the golden ochre of the Luberon earth.
On the south side, a large covered loggia is ideal for enjoying the end of the summer day, and on the north-east side, a small covered terrace and a sun lounger area are more intimate for enjoying a romantic breakfast or relaxing.
The rooms are bathed in light and offer a glimpse of the omnipresent vegetation.
The living and dining room
The exposed beams, the terracotta tiles with a patina of age from floor to ceiling, the large traditional fireplace, the white wooden furniture and the blue cushions, give the main room a warm atmosphere, ideal for recharging one’s batteries in any season.
The bay window overlooking the gardens diffuses a regenerating diaphanous light.
Situated overhanging, this covered gallery, typical of Provencal houses, offers the best view of the estate.
The loggia is a privileged space to enjoy breakfast in the cool of the day, or an aperitif when the heat gives way to the mildness of the evening.
Louis and Lucille share their love of reading, leaving many books at the disposal of their guests which they can enjoy comfortably on the sofa installed for this purpose.
A wooden desk and a printer are also at their disposal.
