Charming Provencal property at the foot of the Luberon Forest and National Park.
L'Art du Temps is a charming little jewel situated in the golden triangle of the Luberon near to Gordes, Menerbes (5 mins), Bonnieux, Lacoste (20 mins) and 25 mins from St Rémy. Only 10 mins from the nearest main axe and highway.
This delightful property, nestled behind old stone built walls, invites you to enoy peace and quiet far from the maddening crowd and the Luberon Forest and Mountains behind it protect it from the whistling Mistral winds.
Over the last 20 yrs the owner has slowly added provencal decor discovered in antique fayres that blend in perfectly with the beautiful garden. Tomato plants, fruit trees and aromatic plants thrive happily amongst the poteries and ancient jarres, century old olive trees and bird cages belonging to the 19th century. An unusual mixture of old and modern.
The delightful pool can be lit up at night times and is great for cooling down near the pool house where a fully equipped summer kitchen with bbq and stone table await you for delicious meal times. There is also a shower and WC near the pool area as well as a pretty stone fountain.
Very romantic and relaxing with garden furniture and sunloungers. The garden and summer kitchen boast a fresh, cool temperature at night times.
On entering the ground floor of this exquisite villa you will find a spacious long lounge and dining area with an open plan kitchen. Fully equipped with fabulous Lacanche oven and american fridge. Dining table and comfortable lounge area with leather canapés and French doors that open out onto the shady terrace. There are two pretty double bedrooms with king size beds (they can be separated into singles if necessary) and plenty of cupboard space, light and airy, cool and comfortable. One has bay windows that open out onto the pretty garden and pool with views over the Luberon Mountains in the background.
These two bedrooms share a spacious, pretty and practical bathroom with italien shower, bathtub, washbasin and separate WC. (Extra Shower room near pool)
There is plenty of storage space for shopping and lovely dishes and plates, glassware and pans for cooking.
There is a separate laundry room with washer and ironing facilities.
The house is decorated with art works and numerous Provencal oil paintings. The owner, a stone scultpure artist has turned this amazing home into a haven of peace and wonderful spot for a holiday. This is the ideal spot for small families, hikers, walkers or cyclists who wish to discover the Forest and national Park or for those who just want to relax and rest.
Ideally situated for visiting the Provence and Luberon, 5 mins from the nearest supermarkets and stores, weekly markets and 30 mins from Avignon TGV station.
