This generously sized house affords guests space to truly relax as well as the warmth and traditional charm associated with this beautiful region. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and acres of fruitful farmland, the villa boasts breath-taking countryside views, not to mention enviable peace and tranquillity.
A delightful blend of rustic stone and soft cream render with sage-painted shutters at the windows, the property is not only handsome but also immaculately presented both inside and out. Cool terracotta floors and tasteful décor are complemented by carefully chosen pieces of hand painted furniture and ornaments.
On the ground floor is a spacious salon-style living room, complete with a traditional writing bureau, cosy fireplace and plump sofas to sink into after a busy day’s sightseeing. There’s also a dedicated games room where satellite TV, a DVD player, pool table and chess set guarantee plenty of entertainment and a little friendly rivalry. An outdoor table tennis table and table football offer further opportunities for those who can’t resist the lure of competition.
The bright, sunny farmhouse kitchen is well equipped and fitted with modern appliances including an American style fridge freezer and two ovens so even cooking for 12 needn’t present any difficulties. A large kitchen table serves as additional worktop space as well as being a great breakfast spot, while a separate dining room off the lounge provides a very elegant setting for more formal meals or a sparkling dinner party.
The charming garden terrace, however, is where guests are likely to spend most mealtimes, seated at the sleek glass table under the shade of a curved canopy with lush grapevines curling up the pergola. Provence’s balmy summer evenings are yours to enjoy and with a wealth of local produce to savour, barbecues are an obvious choice.
There are six simply but elegantly furnished double or twin bedrooms, all decorated in calm, restful tones, with two located on the ground floor and four on the first floor. Four of the rooms have en suite bath or shower rooms, while two of the upstairs rooms are accessed externally and share a bathroom between them.
The lovingly tended gardens are extensive, with a pond, flourishing shrubs, olive trees, lavender and cypress all jostling for the limelight. The large private saltwater pool, set in manicured lawns with a sun-drenched terrace to one side, is the perfect way to cool down in the Mediterranean heat and there are numerous pockets of shade where you can settle down with a chilled beverage and a good book.
When you’re ready to explore, the nearby medieval village of Cucuron is the ideal place to start. Its winding streets, attractive church and delightful square pond (bassin) surrounded by plane trees have earned it a place in several movies. Visit the weekly market for superb local produce, including cheese and honey. You can reach many of the Luberon’s lovely villages within a short drive of the villa, while Aix-en-Provence is only 25 minutes away.
Mas du Luberon really is a great choice for a very relaxing, very Provençal holiday experience.
