Description

A magnificently restored 18th century Priory set in the heart of one of the Luberon’s most charming medieval villages, Cabrières d’Avignon. The village is a sleepy place, a perfectly preserved cluster of honey-coloured houses and dry stone walls, with narrow winding streets, fountains, original washhouses and a 12th century castle (now privately owned) with a bloody history. The village shops, a baker, excellent butcher and grocer are a few minutes walk from the house as is the excellent village restaurant. There’s a second restaurant 10 minutes walk away. Cabrières is the most perfect location from which to explore the highlights of inland Provence, with many attractions being within a half hour drive. The Roman cities of Arles, Avignon, Nimes, St Remy and Vaison la Romain are also within easy striking distance. There are daily markets, including antiques, and a summer season of fetes and music/opera festivals all nearby.

This sunny south facing property has an attractive garden complete with original features such as an old well, stone table and garden statues against a backdrop of the 16th century church in the adjacent square. There is a swimming pool (approximately 10 x 5m), and several delightful garden areas designed for ‘al fresco’ dining.

Large high ceiling rooms with tasteful antique furniture, original tiled floors and authentic wooden ceilings give his house a very special atmosphere. Its warm colours and style are slightly reminiscent of a Tuscan property but the charm of its garden, pool area and the surrounding village are typically French and very Provencal!
