Bonnieux farmhouse description

Mas Vignes Folles is a 200-year old stone mas (farmhouse), comprising two houses: THE OLD HOUSE which sleeps 4 and THE GARDEN HOUSE which sleeps 6. Both houses are built around a central, walled courtyard which is totally secure and which features a superb mulberry tree providing shade in summer. There is also a soothing fountain and arched gateway to the terrace, garden and beautiful infinity swimming pool. The houses are not rented out separately.

The house is surrounded by vineyards, cherry orchards, and lavender fields in an area criss-crossed with walks and off-road cycle rides. It is located 2.5 kilometers from the picturesque, hill-top village of Bonnieux, one of the prettiest Provencal villages in the Luberon.

The village has an excellent butcher, baker, range of restaurants, and interesting shops. Other unique beauty spots such as Gordes, Menerbes, Goult, Roussillon, and Fontaine de Vaucluse are near at hand. For antiques lovers, the unique town of Isle sur la Sorgue, just 30 minutes away, with its plethora of antique and bric a brac shops and the famous weekend markets, make it an unmissable spot.

ACCOMMODATION - The house has been refurbished to the highest standards with interesting fabrics and country antiques.

THE OLD HOUSE comprises two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen and a sitting room.

THE GARDEN HOUSE comprises 3 twin-bedded rooms with 3 bathrooms and a utility room/kitchen.

All rooms have double aspect.

The farmhouse is approached by a long, private drive and is surrounded by 3.5 acres of land including two acres of vines. The house has magnificent views of the surrounding hills including Mont Ventoux some 30 miles away and the Luberon Valley.

Large abris (open-fronted roof tiled covered areas) and a built-in charcoal barbecue create a charming ambiance in which to relax or dine within the courtyard. An arched gate leads from the totally secure courtyard to the terrace, also an ideal spot for dining, and the delightful garden. The swimming pool (12-meters by six-meters), set between lavender beds, helps create the perfect Provencal setting.

Sports enthusiasts should note the fully fenced, all-weather, surface tennis court, as well as the boule pitch which overlooks the vineyards and Mont Ventoux.

ACTIVITIES AND AMENITIES:
Whether you just want to chill out and relax by the pool, play tennis or boule at the house, or venture further afield - whatever your choice - the house is ideally situated. It is a perfect start point for many walks and cycle rides and details such as cycle hire, horse riding, and many other local activities are provided at the house.

There are several excellent golf courses in the general area.

The local villages, each with their own colourful weekly markets which are the very essence of Provence, are well worth a visit.

Further afield, Avignon, Arles, Nimes, and Marseilles, with their culture and history, offer a welcome change to the peaceful life in the Luberon.

There are international music and drama festivals every summer including memorable concerts in the hill-top church at Bonnieux.

There are many beautiful beaches to enjoy including Cassis, a charming fishing village, near Marseilles. Cannes, with its hustle, bustle, and glamour, is approximately two-and-one-half hours away.

Provence is well-known for its great restaurants, cafes, and bars, and there are numerous in the various villages in the area.

for wine lovers, there are many vineyards to visit where teh conviviality of the owners make the discussions fun and informative.

Cooker and painting classes can be arranged as can tennis coaching on the house's own all-weather court.


All in all, an unbeatable region - an unbeatable farmhouse!
