Beautifully restored, 3 bedroom 19th century property with stunning views of the Alps, private garden and pool located in the middle of the Luberon – ideal for relaxing, exploring and sport activities. Montjustin has 54 inhabitants, no through car traffic, no noise and no pollution. The only commerce in the village is a small 'Bistrot de Pays'.
La Fenice is the original “mas” which has been carefully restored and tastefully decorated, with a stone fireplace and terracotta floor tiling throughout. The villa and the grounds, at the top of the village (the lane stops just past your back door) with incredible views of the Luberon national park were part of the old castle compound . The large garden opens into a panoramic view of the Luberon and the Alps. At an altitude of 600m, the nights in Montjustin are clear, beautiful and comfortable, even in the warmest summer days.
Two interconnecting stone vaults (wonderfully cool in summer) give the house a unique character. The kitchen, sited into one of them, has all modern amenities. The second stone vault is a combined living/dining room with open fireplace. Behind the kitchen there is a huge utility room.
There is ample living space. In addition to a combined living/dining room with open fireplace on the ground floor and a self-contained sitting or play area in the extension, there is a big upstairs lounge, also with Provencal fireplace, picture windows and doors on to one of the spacious terraces.
Outside, the quarter acre (1000 sq. m) garden offers panoramic views over the beautiful Luberon countryside and the Alps. It contains a 8 x 4m landscaped, floodlit pool with night blanket, surrounding terraces and plentiful garden furniture.
