For antiques lovers, the unique town of Isle sur la Sorgue, just 30 minutes away, with its plethora of antique and bric a brac shops and the famous weekend markets, make it an unmissable spot.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I bought this very special home in 2002 and set about restoring it ensuring that we retained its period features. It was a wonderfully exciting time, breathing life into its massively thick walls and creating a home full of character and charm. At that time, an eminent landscape gardener cast his magic wand over the grounds to create a simple, yet sophisticated garden with topiary to give it structure, lavender to give it perfume and wonderful green grass for family enjoyment. Ancient olive trees and cypress complete the beautiful provencal environment. The work was finished in 2003 and our lovely home has since seen many happy holidays for our family and for many others.

Why the Owner Chose Bonnieux, France:
I bought the property because of its unbeatable charm, ambience, outstanding views, fabulous location and Bonnieux, one of the prettiest villages in the Luberon, just over 2 kilometres up the hill. It couldn't be bettered!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
When I saw the beautiful walled courtyard which offers complete security, I knew this was the place . The views through the stunning archway to the garden and infinity swimming pool just set the scene for us. And then the larger vista over the vineyard towards Mont Ventoux is exceptional. Much TLC has gone into creating Mas des Vignes Folles and it has been enormous fun in making such a very special home.
