The farmhouse is gated, entirely private, and set on its own six acres of lushly landscaped grounds. The gardens, with views of Mount Ventoux and the 11th century fortified Abbaye de Thouzon, contain more than 300 rose bushes and climbing rose vines, 2000 lavender plants, an orchard of 40-year-old producing olive trees, cypress trees. Mas Amoureuse produces its own lavender oïl.

For other shopping, you will find plenty of local shops for fresh bread, croissants, patisseries and a large grocery store within 2-3 km.
