Peter Mayle fell in love with it and wrote A Year in Provence, his chronicle of life there. Long before it was discovered by tourists, the Luberon was home to farmers, winegrowers and a little-known vacation destination for those seeking peace and relaxation in the French countryside. Today, its scenic perched villages – from Gordes and Bonnieux to Menerbes and Lacoste – are celebrated destinations. And there are still quiet spots where you can enjoy a true taste of the Luberon.
Located in the countryside just a short drive from Lacoste, this 18th-century stone farmhouse is set in a spacious natural garden with a tall oaks, olive trees and an array of flowering shrubs and plants. Adjacent to the house is a large graveled terrace with an arbored dining area and ample outdoor dining furniture. Several stairs from the graveled terrace lead to the pretty basin-style swimming pool surrounded by a beautiful lawn, all shaded by the oaks.
The U-shaped house is built around a large stone-courtyard. It has been totally restored using the highest quality building materials. Traditional architectural features include exposed stone work, heavy wood-beamed ceilings and stone and terra cotta tile floors.

It is equipped to entice cooks of all levels and features a professional-level stove, stainless-steel refrigerator, plenty of preparation space, dark olive-colored wood cabinets, espresso maker and full complement of cookware, dishes and cutlery and added feature is the filtered drinkable water.

On the far end is the sitting area with comfortable upholstered sofas and chairs grouped around a wood coffee table. Opposite on the wall is the flat-screen television with satellite service. Behind the sitting area is a wood dining table and chairs for 8 people. Another door from the dining area opens to the “boules” court.
