A beautiful example of a fine restoration – the interior is quite modern but has retained the character of this old silk-worm farm. There are views toward the Lubéron mountains and Mont Ventoux – what more could you ask for?
In an ideal location between two lovely provençal villages (Ménerbes and Oppède both at 2km with basic shops) this charming 18th century Mas (an old "Magnanerie" - silk-worm farm) is at the heart of the Regional Park of the Luberon in the Luberon Valley between the Mountain of the Luberon and Mont Ventoux (visible from the grounds). Many walks can be taken from the property without taking a car, as far up as 1000m.
Within 20km of the property are all the famous villages of the Luberon - Gordes (11km), Coustellet (6km), Roussillon (22km), Ménerbes (2km), Oppède-le-Vieux (2km - 20 minutes by foot), Goult (12km), Lacoste (8km - visit the Château of the Marquis de Sade). There are many festivals and fêtes in these villages throughout the summer. The local markets are famous - antique market at Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (16km), huge provençal market at Lourmarin (26km). The charming market town of Cavaillon is 13km away (all shops, supermarkets, twice-weekly market) and Avignon is close by (36km).
There is a tennis court in Oppède, bike hire in Coustellet and horse riding near Lagnes (11km). There is a beautiful 9 & 18 hole golf course 15km away at Saumane, and a leisure lake (swimming, sailing) at Apt (21km). There are beautiful beaches all along the Mediterranean coast with the closest in Marseille and Carry-le-Rouet (both 91km), Sausset-les-Pins (96km) and La Couronne (100km).
