The closest town, Roussillon, is visible from our property and a 35-minute walk through the countryside and past a very good and friendly winery. Roussillon is one of two towns (the other is Gordes) on the national historical register and draw lots of visitors. They have a variety restaurants, shops, galleries, musical events and recreational facilities. The country around our house is ideal for cycling, walking, riding (trails are close), wine tasting and antiquing (Isle Sur La Sorgue).
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Karen and Imbert Matthee, both longtime professional journalists, live on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. Imbert grew up in the Netherlands and spent many summers in southern France as a teenager. Ten years ago, he and Karen traveled in Provence, went 'real estating' for fun and fell in love with an old farm house in tiny piny hamlet. In 2012, they put the finishing touches on years of reconstruction and renovation. Come see the results yourselves!
Why the Owner Chose Roussillon, France:
There are days when we never get in the car or go to town, when we go for long walks or ride our bikes, visiting the wineries a stone's throw from the house, chatting with our French neighbors in the fields, lounging by the pool, working in the yard or having dinner with local friends. Those days when we don't feel any urge to be anywhere else are the best and there are many!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
On the threshold of two of the 'Plus beaux villages de France' (Roussillon and Gordes), our house and hamlet are close enough to take advantage of life on the historic trail and far enough to have all the privacy of our own little paradise. In the heart of the Luberon, Roussillon is barely an hour from the Mediterranean and the beautiful Gorge Du Verdon. The country is filled with scent of lavender and the sound of cicadas. Light reflects from the limestone earth and the sun catches tangerine in the pine branches. When we're there, we never want to leave.
