An extremely comfortable and stylish house with amazing views towards the historic and picturesque village of Lourmarin. This villa is situated on a hillside, backed by its own six acres of woodland. The westerly views from the various terraces offer spectacular sunsets. Though a fairly new house it has been sympathetically transformed into a Provencal-style house of character by using local stone, tiles and fabrics. Being built on a hill the entrance is on the first floor and the main living areas are below on the ground floor level. The house has an under floor cooling system which keeps it comfortably cool, provided the shutters are not left wide open during the heat of the day.
Great attention has been paid to detail which results in a house with all the modern conveniences and comforts – a house created as a home rather than a property for renting.
The house overlooks a beautifully landscaped garden with a 5 x 10 m swimming pool (1.20m – 2m deep) and sweeping lawns with flowerbeds full of Provencal shrubs and trees and a decked, shaded dining area under trees near the pool. There is a second outside dining area on the patio beside the kitchen. Beyond the pool is a brand new artificial grass tennis court. There is also a table tennis table at the property. Lourmarin, 5 minutes away by car, is a delightful village with one of the best weekly markets in the Luberon area of Provence.
It is a village with excellent restaurants, stylish shops and an old castle open to the public. This village is situated on the southern side of the Luberon and it is an easy drive to reach the other famous Luberon villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes and Oppede le Vieux. The region is abundant with good restaurants and vineyards and rich in history.
