Apt chateau / country house description

This 18th century traditional provencal Bastide is set amid 25 acres of woodland and cherry orchards in the heart of the Luberon. In the mature grounds you will still find traces of an old maze, once a favourite feature of a gentleman's country retreat. La Blancherie du Luberon has been refurbished and modernised, whilst retaining its authentic charm.

From the swimming pool or the jardin 'a la Francaise', one has a 360 degree view: The pre-luberon plateau in the South; a pine, oak and cedar tree-covered hill and cherry orchard in the West, the town of Apt and the Mountains of Vaucluse (incl. the famous Tour de France Ventoux) in the North, and the beautiful Saignon Rock and village in the East.

Ideal for a family outdoor vacation or a quite and secluded break among friends, far from city hassle and noise.
