Bonnieux farmhouse description

La Grande Terre is a typical 18th Century Provencal 'Mas' (traditional farmhouse). The property which is over two hundred years old has recently been renovated and lovingly restored and has been decorated with style, elegance with traditional antiques and beautiful furniture chosen with care and good taste. The house is perfectly situated with south facing, uninterrupted views of Bonnieux, Lacoste and the Luberon mountains.

The property is set in the heart of the beautiful Luberon valley, yet very accessible to local towns and delightful villages, where markets famously flourish, from the gentle 'locals' produce markets to the more flamboyant and colourful.The house is beautifully set in seven acres and surrounded by vines, lavender and cherry orchards. There is plenty of room around the south-facing pool, which is equipped with sun beds and chairs, to sunbathe and relax. There are good facilities for barbeque and al fresco eating. If you are an early visitor, the poppy fields are quite stunning thereafter the lavender takes over and perhaps sunflowers and of course the omnipresent vines! The swimming pool which has heating should it be required. measuring 10 x 5 metres, is brand new and completely private and for the use of the house only and has a safety cover for children. There is a good BBQ, large dining table, boules, and table tennis. There are other 'quieter' terraces providing shade for reading and relaxing or taking an aperitif.The nearest beach is about an hours drive away and is near Marseilles, there are quite a few different beaches along that part of the coast. Cassis, which is a delightful old fashioned port, is about 1.5 hours drive away and a good place to spend the day and enjoy a picnic and boat trip to the stunning Calanques. It has many cafes and great fish restaurants in the port.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We are a married couple who adore France and the Luberon in particular where we love spending as much time as we can. He is an architect and she his part time secretary. In England, Bill specialises in conservation and restoration of old and interesting buildings, preserving as much of the architectural features as possible, which of course stood him in good stead for this major undertaking here in France. We have travelled extensively and incorporated some ideas and artefacts into the restoration which we have collected en-route, thus creating an interesting and eclectic mix, whilst also keeping the 'Provencal' feel in the house. We both love good food and wine and those are two other great reasons to have a home here with so many wonderful restaurants and vineyards within easy reach.

              Why the Owner Chose Bonnieux:
              We have for many years talked about and wanted to have a house in Provence. Ideally, we wanted to restore and old Mas as this is what we believe we are good at. We spent lots of time during our holidays browsing Estate Agent's windows and deciding exactly where we would like to buy a property, we narrowed the area down to the beautiful Luberon Valley and just about where we did manage to find this lovely old house, which we believe is perfectly situated. It is within easy reach of the beautiful hill top villages and a large market town which is only 8km away. The restoration of the mas and the gardens tested our patience and pockets way beyond our initial estimation but we got there in the end and are thrilled with the result of our labours, both mental and physical!

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              La Grande Terre is conveniently located and also has beautiful views across the countryside to the Luberon mountains and Roussillon. We don't feel cut off here but at the same time have privacy and tranquility.
