Property description

Magnificent Farmhouse with swimming pool, acres of unspoilt farmland with Olive trees and Lavender fields. Incredible views over the Luberon Valley and nearby village of Murs.

The “Mas de Roquejeanne” is a magnificently restored French Farmhouse settled on the hillside in acres of its own unspoilt farm land boasting lavender fields and olive trees in the heart of the Luberon National Park only 7 kms from Gordes and 40 kms from Avignon. The Farmhouse, once a sheep farm, is surrounded by thousands of acres of oak forest with exceptional views over the Luberon Valley. As you drive up the lane, through the typically Provençal garrigue woodland dense with wild oak and olive trees, to the property you will be amazed to discover a lush green lawn below a majestic and ancient oak tree giving shade at the rear of the farmhouse. Fields of lavender in long straight lines proudly await you and the splendor of this incredibly beautiful domain will strike you as you walk down towards the pool deck and front terrace.

Built and restored in local stone on two levels, the Farmhouse is fully furnished and beautifully decorated with pretty Provençal furniture, charming objects and bright paintings. The terrace and courtyard are accessible from the kitchen, dining room, library and lounge and the property is equipped with all modern amenities. As you walk into the entrance hall you immediately feel at home in this charming old farmhouse. The kitchen is a gourmet Chef’s dream, huge central island with zinc work top, stone work tops, battery of utensils for cooking, plenty of high quality plates, glasses, platters and cutlery. 5 gas top stove and a huge stone sink, dishwasher. You also have access to the quaint cool little rear terrace with it’s round stone table and barbecue area with views over the mountains. There is plenty of cupboard space and a pantry to the rear of the kitchen with American fridge, coffee machines, robots and everything you would need for preparing delicious meals. The laundry room is adjacent to the kitchen with washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities.

The long wooden dining table is great for informal lunches or evening meals and an impressive stone fireplace warms the cozy armchairs in the little sitting room next to the dining area, a perfect spot for relaxing and taking an aperitif before dinner. The ceilings are à la française and the stone slab floors sober and natural. The library and second lounge continue on along the ground floor with views over the garden, terrace and pool area. Another stone fireplace awaits you in the far lounge and the library has comfortable sofas to sit in for reading quietly, listening to music or watching TV.

The shady outdoor covered terrace has pretty tables and chairs ideal for bubbly evening meals and summer lunches. You can spend hours sitting in the shade relaxing and talking about the different markets you have visited in the week whilst tasting one of the many delicious rosés that are produced in the Luberon. The flowered courtyard is protected from the Mistral and many herbs grow wildly but orderly between the old stones.

Upstairs are three spacious sunny double bedrooms, each with its own luxurious bathroom (two bathrooms have both bath tubs and separate walk in showers, washbasins). The bedrooms all have spectacular views over the gardens, grounds and valley and are decorated in natural soft colors and fabrics. Beautiful curtains drape the windows and pretty bedspreads lay over the beds, adorable decorative objects adorn the dressing tables and walls. The floors of this superb farmhouse are a mixture of bleached wood and terracotta tiles, the natural stone walls and light colored furniture provide a pure cheerful atmosphere. Three bedrooms have queen size double beds and are in the main building. The fourth bedroom has a double size bed and en suite shower room and is accessible via the courtyard, ideal for young or older couples (no stairs) liking more privacy.

The Farmhouse swimming pool is set in a teak 'beach' with olive trees and cherry trees. There are sun loungers around the pool and parasols. The views from the pool and surrounds are breathtaking and you will think that you are on top of the World up here. If you come when the cherries are ripe you may pick as many as you wish from our cherry trees and also gather bunches of lavender when the summer sun has turned it blue and mauve.

This entire property is completely secluded and private, a haven of peace for those who wish to enjoy a lazy relaxing holiday in the Provence region and not too far from all the amazing perched villages with their lively markets and pretty little streets definitely worth the detour before coming back “home”.
