L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue farmhouse description

Magnificent 1700’s Mas Provençal situated under the shade of 300 year-old plane trees; swimming pool; extensive landscaped grounds.

Sleeps 12 - 16 Cottage rates 1000 euros per week all season.

Built before the French Revolution, Mas Amoureuse is the quintessential example of the best and most beautiful of Provencal stone farmhouses. Together with its former stone sheep bergere, now part of the original house, the Mas offers over 450m² of the highest quality living space. The farmhouse is gated, entirely private, and set on its own six acres of lushly landscaped grounds. The gardens, with views of Mount Ventoux and the 11th century fortified Abbaye de Thouzon, contain more than 300 rose bushes and climbing rose vines, 2000 lavender plants, an orchard of 40-year-old producing olive trees, cypress trees. Mas Amoureuse produces its own lavender oïl.

The location of Mas Amoureuse is perfect for guests who want to explore every corner of Provence. There are endless opportunities for day trips to different medieval villages in the mornings, an outdoor lunch at a Provencal village restaurant, and perhaps a restful afternoon by the pool. For antique shopping, Isle Sur La Sorgue, the second largest center of antiques in France, is just a ten-minute drive. In less than 20 minutes, you can tour the 15th century Palace du Papes in the historic walled city of Avignon, taste the wines of the grand vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape,Gigondas, Vacqueras, and Beaume des Venise as well as visit The Most Beautiful Villages in France: Menerbes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Gordes, Roussillon,Venasque, St Rémy, Les Baux de Provence, Fountaine de Vaucluse, Seguret and Sablet.

The small village of Le Thor is quietly nestled in the countryside among fruit orchards, large vegetable farms, vineyards and sunflowers. The neighboring village of Velleron with a famous fruit and vegetable market open six nights a week. For other shopping, you will find plenty of local shops for fresh bread, croissants, patisseries and a large grocery store within 2-3 km.

Mas Amoureuse, renovated from 2009-2010, is equipped with the highest quality chef’s kitchen: a new La Cornue “Grandpere” gas and electric range; two sinks; two full-sized dishwashers plus a professional wine glass dishwasher and coffee machines etc. The gourmet kitchen has a large wood-burning fireplace; a 207 X 180 cm center island, copper cookware; porcelain, enamel and metal bakeware; Cuisinart food processor; a complete spice and herb inventory; and a large international and French cookbook library. A second kitchen has a new Bosch washer and dryer and additional storage space. The custom walnut kitchen table seats 12, but most meals are eaten just outside the kitchen on the charming flowered, stone terrace. The rose-covered terrace has two large fer forgé tables and 16 comfortable cushioned chairs, perfect for outdoor meals in the shade under the two 300 year-old plane trees. A portion of the owner’s wine collection is also available to guests. The entire Mas is Air-conditioned.

The spacious Grand Salon of the house has a cathedral beamed ceiling and wood-burning Provencal stone fireplace, fabulous French paintings, antique Provencal furniture pieces and chandeliers. The Grand Salon also contains a museum-quality Normandy armoire dated 1784, 18th century Provencal pannetaire, Arlesianne commode, and parquetry tables. The ceiling-high iron and glass doors in this room open to the stone terrace. Just outside the doors of the Grand Salon, this end of the spacious terrace has two antique iron beds, covered with comfortable blue and white toile pillows.

On the opposite side of the Mas is a comfortable family lounge with high, beamed ceilings and its own wood-burning fireplace, cozy designer sofa and chairs, desk and bookcases. Full library of books covering history, fiction, gardening, interior design and children’s books in French. This room is fully equipped with a widescreen Sony LCD TV, satellite reception that includes all available English-speaking news and movie channels as well as German, Russian, Asian and Middle East channels.

Mas Amoureuse has six pretty bedrooms in the main house, all freshly decorated with some of the most beautiful French designer fabrics (Manuel Canovas, Pierre Frey, Braquenie, etc.) The beds are made with the highest quality French and Italian 1,000 + count linens and duvets. Five of the six bedrooms have kings and the sixth has twins. One of the bedrooms has its own separate entrance with access from the garden. There are five luxurious bathroom/shower rooms. All bathrooms are equipped with French soaps, shampoos, robes and hair dryers. All the bedrooms have comfortable chairs, end tables with lamps and antique armoires for clothing storage. All the bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom, are air-conditioned.

The recently renovated cottage sleeps 4 people, 2 bedrooms and big shower room ensuite.

The 12-meter x 6-meter (20 ft. X 40 ft.) swimming pool is surrounded by rose bushes and stone surrounds with plenty of space for the comfortable, modern sun loungers and parasols.
