About Deb McDougall
We are originally from England, however, work took us to The Netherlands, when our family was young. Living in mainland Europe gave us plenty of opportunities to explore many different countries, but something always drew us back to southern France for family holidays. We often dreamed of buying an old place to restore when the children had grown up, but then when the situation actually presented itself, we found ourselves moving with three children still in education. Fortunately, none of us has ever regretted it for a second. We had restored old houses before, but taking on a property that was nearly 500 years old, was quite a challenge - often a nightmare, but more often than not full filling a dream. Everyone gets roped in from time to time to help with big projects, like excavating wells and discovering secret passages. The property is so old and has so much history and charater, we feel more like we are its caretakers, rather than the owners.
Deb McDougall purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2002
Why Deb McDougall chose Pertuis
Actually I think the property chose us, parts of it were so run down, no one else would have been crazy enough to take it on.... but we quickly fell in love with it ... and we like a challenge! It has certainly been a labour of love - a lot of hard work but very rewarding, particularly as we can now see our guests enjoying it as much as we do. This is the most beautiful part of Provence, with the coast only a 45 minute drive away and the lush Luberon hills above us, and the wonderful villages and markets that make Provence unique. There is so much to see and experience, that when we do'remember' to take a day off, we are still discovering news places and 'gems'
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The three houses can be rented individually except during July and August, when they are let as a whole as they are very popular with groups of friends and large families who want to holiday together but don't necessarily want to be all under the same roof. There are secluded areas where guests can escape for some quiet time, but plenty of space to enjoy each others company dining al fresco or working off the effects on the tennis court or in the pool. Set in the countryside, 'La Loubiere' is only five minutes drive from a bustling town and a short drive from the numerous Luberon villages and their markets. In contrast Aix-en-Provence, one of the most beautiful cities in France is only twenty minutes drive away. Returning to 'La Loubiere' after a busy day exploring and being able to relax and watch the sun setting with a glass of wine - there is nothing to beat it!
