Property description

This extraordinary home located between the villages of Gordes and Murs was built on the foundations of a building that belonged to the 12th century Abbaye of Senanque, and is surrounded by 70 acres of unspoiled forest, fruit and almond trees, truffle oaks and fields of lavender. The magnificent views are uninterrupted across national forests to Cezanne's beloved Mount Saint Victoire.

As you drive off the main road onto a private gravel drive, you descend into a small valley, past a 500 year old oak tree that guards the approach to this stunning home. The first impression is truly breathtaking. The exterior walls are made from the irregular honey colored stones of Provence. From the central round tower, two large wings open to welcome you into an atmosphere of elegant serenity.

The large living room with its massive beams and comfortable furniture opens onto a covered terrace and a view of the infinity pool, beyond which unfold the rolling landscape of lavender and fruit trees, with the distant mountains and vivid Provence sky as background.
The dining room easily seats 16 guests and includes a huge wood burning stone fireplace.

The main floor also offers two very large bedrooms with en suite marble bathrooms, one with a large steam room/shower, the other with separate tub and shower. Both of these bedrooms have private exterior doors to a walled garden.There is a large library/sitting room, a media room with a 60 inch flat screen TV, a huge kitchen with top end appliances, a laundry room, an exercise room with state-of -the-art equipment, and two large covered terraces, one overlooking the pool and the other off the kitchen for dining al fresco.

The second floor has a large central hall, six more bedrooms and five more spacious marble bathrooms.

Why do I love this property?

1 - It's astonishingly beautiful, quiet, secluded, elegant, serene and magical.
2 - It's completely private - just you, your family and friends, and millions of stars in the night sky.
3 - It's spacious - large enough to handle a large extended family or up to eight couples, with plenty of places to escape to for privacy!
4 - Spectacular location: Surrounded by national forests, and only five minutes from Gordes, 10 minutes from Roussillon and three minutes from the famous Abbaye de Senanque.

Who is the perfect guest for this property?

1 - A family. It's well suited for all ages.
2 - A group of friends who want to celebrate a special occasion or just to share the joys of Provence.
3 - A business retreat for colleagues to bond and solve problems.
4 - Anyone interested in cycling and the proximity of the famous Mount Ventoux.
4 - Anyone interested in a themed vacation to learn French, cooking, painting, sculpture, truffle culture or anything else that this gloriously situated property will nurture and inspire.
