Two original stone buildings, a farmhouse and stable, dating back to 1789 have been extended and joined by a central entrance hall of spectacular proportions to create Le Marronnier, a tastefully furnished home with original artwork and sculptures created by the Artist owner.
The grounds capture the essence of the surrounding countryside, with huge mature trees, expansive open spaces, a tranquil bassin next to a vine covered terrace and an arbour leading the way from house to pool with an unusual green/blue colour.
The bastide is located on the outskirts of Saignon on the northern edge of the Luberon National Park, thus offering commanding views over the Luberon hills and Mont Ventoux, the highest peak in Provence. Nearby Apt has the best weekly market in the region. Within easy driving distance are the beautiful cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, neither of which should be missed during your stay in this wonderful part of France.
