Ansouis house description

'La Maison des Arches' (featured in the February 1996 issue of Architectural Digest) is situated in the hilltop village of Ansouis, designated by the French Government as 'One of the Most Beautiful Villages of France'.

The house is facing south and has a large terrace with pool overlooking the surrounding countryside. The property is enclosed with a wall on one side and a pool house on the other, affording total privacy and calm. It is a two minute walk to the local Bakery for fresh bread and croissants. A two minute stroll takes you to a Newspaper/Magazine Shop, a Cafe/Bar frequented by the locals and an excellent Restaurant well-known in the area. A new small 'Epicerie' (grocery) has recently opened a few doors from the Post Office. The village also boasts a lovely medieval Chateau with large grounds which is open to visitors.

The house is furnished with lovely antiques and is fully equipped with all amenities, including WiFi and satellite TV. The house layout is as follows:
First Floor:
- 17th C stone vaulted Living Room and Dining Room (16.5 x 31 ft)

-Large covered Terrace (summer living room)
-Pool House (summer dining room)
-Bathroom with toilet and shower

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: My husband and I have been visiting the Provence and particularly the Luberon area for over 15 years. In 2004, we were fortunate to be able to purchase the beautiful home of our dear friends in Ansouis who were preparing to retire to Paris! We are in love with Provence, in love with Ansouis and in love with our home. In more than 15 years we have yet to exhaust all the beauties and riches of the area. We enjoy sharing our home with those who are discovering the Provence for the first time or returning again to this magical spot. Many of those who rent our home return again!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              From early spring through late autumn, we enjoy living outside on our terrace with views over the beautiful Provencal countryside. We breakfast in the early morning sunshine, lunch in the cool covered terrace area next to the pool and enjoy dinner in the pool house overlooking the valley while watching the sun set. We love the convenience of being situated in the lovely village of Ansouis within a short walk to the bakery, local tabac (newspaper & magazine store)and a first class restaurant while enjoying the complete privacy and 'tucked away' feeling of our home perched over the valley. It is indeed a piece of paradise for us.
