Positioned on the southern slopes of the Grand Luberon, with views stretching out to Mont Sainte Victoire, our house enjoys complete peace and isolation yet is just five minutes’ drive from shops and amenities.
Le Bonhomme is a former bergerie, reached through vineyards and surrounded by eight hectares of private grounds. We rescued it from a ruin, rebuilding it to a high specification with all new heating, wiring, plumbing and pressurised hot water system. Its traditional Provençal heritage has been retained with timber beams, flagstone flooring and gentle shade from an ancient tilleul tree that keeps the rooms delightfully cool in summer. Central heating and wood burning stove in winter, air conditioning in summer. The house is now recognized as a Batiment Remarquable.
With no near neighbours and a brand new fenced and heated swimming pool, the property is a perfect retreat for families with children or groups. We’ve sought to make our house a place to relax away from the modern world whilst still being connected to it, with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms, high-speed Wi-Fi internet, Freesat UK TV, a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ and plenty of places to read a book in the sun or shade or simply enjoy the birdsong. Situated just off a cycle route and many marked walks, surrounded by vineyards and woods, with a view of the hilltop village of Grambois and the Mont Sainte Victoire and a short drive from historic villages, wineries, markets and Aix en Provence, this is the perfect place for a Provençal holiday. Large floodlit boules pitch/parking, private drive and plenty of off road parking.
