Menerbes farmhouse description
Provence, France: Traditional Farm Villa with pool –
Quite and private French Farm Villa made with original stone located in Menerbes—a small village that is surrounded by the Luberon Mountain Range.
At our villa the visitor will enjoy the peace of the Luberon hills, clear blue skies, aromatic air and the wonderful Mediterranean flora and fauna. You will discover the magic of the city described by Peter Mayle in his worldwide acclaimed novel “A year in Provence”, enjoy a café at sunset, visit the Picasso’s residency Maison de Dora Maar purchased by the artist in 1944 or meditate at the ancient Roman cemetery.
The ancient walls of the upper village of Menerbes will take your breath away with the views of the Calavon valley and Mont Ventoux.
Ménerbes is a small, charming village. Walk through the village with its steep alleys and stairways and see the wonderful belfry and former hospice. Notable amongst the various residences are the Castellet (the painter Nicolas de Stael (1914-55) lived here for a while), the Hôtel de Tingry (former residence of the Count of Rantzau), the Carmejane (residence of the Empire General Baron de Carmejane), and the Citadel (former residence of the Empire General Robert, later Picasso also lived here with Dora Maar for a while). The Musée du Tire-Bouchon (Corkscrew Museum) is worth a visit, with over 1000 corkscrews on display, the oldest from the 17th century.
Visiting neighbor villages in the Luberon can take you after the footprints of European medieval history. The village of Bonnieux (located kilometers away from our property) conceals history and myths of the legendary Knights Templar. Bonnieux was a stronghold of the powerful Order until its dissolutions on Oct 13 1307 (origin of the unlucky Friday 13), when all Knights were simultaneously arrested by order of King Phillip and tortured into admitting heresy. In Lacoste, (located kilometers away from our property) the visitor can visit the place where the famous Marques de Sade threw glamorous parties and lead his notorious life.
The villa is located on a hill between Menerbes and La Coste with the Luberon as a backdrop. This villa is made of original stone in the heart of a 6.6 acre forest. The house is 200 square meters and has five rooms each with its own porte-fenetre and four and a half bathrooms. The floors are of stone and original tile in the bathrooms and kitchen. On the first floor is a big dining room with an antique piano, a living room with a fireplace and TV/DVD, a fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room with a second refrigerator. Also on the first floor is an office with DSL/WiFi hook up, two bedrooms with two twin beds and a full bathroom for each room as well as one room with a full size bed with a full bathroom. Upstairs there is another full size bed with a full bathroom and a private balcony/terrace. Local plants surround the house: lavender, olive and oak trees. The salt-water pool is also made of stone and is 12mx6m. The pool area includes a pool house with a bar, lounging chairs, a mini-fridge, stereo, a gas griddle and a full bathroom. The house has a terrace all around one of which faces the north and has and direct access to the kitchen. The house has air conditioning & heat throughout (individual thermostats for each room).
