Inviting large beautiful estate nestled between Aix en Provence and le Luberon.
6 bedrooms – 5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12 guests


Description

MAS L’AUTHENTIQUE is a large, peaceful and comfortable Provencale authentic ‘bastide’ with beautiful views sleeping up to 12 guests.  Ideal for a large group of friends or two families, the house is arranged over two floors. Nestling in the foothills of the Luberon mountains and surrounded by vines and woods, the house and grounds provide an idyllic holiday location.

Accessed by a private road that winds through a thousand acre wine estate, MAS L’ AUTHENTIQUE enjoys not just beautiful scenery but complete privacy.  The twenty acre property consists of a six-bedroom house (sleeping twelve), extensive gardens, an exceptional swimming pool, fields of lavender, vine and wheat and ancient oak woodland.

Location

MAS L’ AUTHENTIQUE is an ideal base for exploring the picturesque Luberon villages of Lourmarin, Goult, Lacost, Bonnieux and Menerbes, the Luberon National Park, the coves and beaches near Cassis and the cities of Aix en Provence, Saint Remy de Provence and Avignon.

Closest village: Pertuis. Aix en Provence is 20 minutes by car.

This location is unique in that the property is completely surrounded by open farmland, just minutes from a local winery, and only 20 minutes from the center of Aix-en-Provence. The smaller town of Pertuis, just minutes from the property, helps to easily meet all of your commercial needs, with grocery stores, banks, bakeries, fruit and vegetable markets, etc.

Closest Transportation

MAS L’ AUTHENTIQUE is less than an hour from Marseille International airport and the TVG stations of Aix-en-Provence and Avignon.

Living Area

Offering a living area of 300m² on two floors:

Ground Floor

Sitting Room

In the oldest part of the house, the sitting room contains the original eighteenth century Provencal fireplace. It draws perfectly and makes the house as cosy in winter as it is cool and airy in summer.

Dining Room

During spring and summer most meals will be enjoyed outside, but in the winter months the dining room provides a genial setting for more formal dining.

Kitchen

The spacious farmhouse kitchen comfortably seats twelve people and contains everything necessary for catering for large numbers including an American fridge freezer, large oven, electric and gas hobs, microwave and dishwasher.  The adjacent utility room houses washing machine, tumble dryer and an additional large fridge for drinks.  The kitchen is generously supplied with cookware and crockery.

The house is equipped with satellite television, telephone and a Bose ipod docking station.

There are four bedrooms on the ground floor, one with en-suite bathroom, each with patio doors opening onto the terrace.  There are also two bathrooms, one with extensive storage space.  Each bedroom on the ground floor has twin beds that can be converted into doubles.

First Floor

Master bedroom 1

A superb bedroom of 42m² with its own 18m² sun terrace. The luxurious ensuite bathroom has a walk in shower, bath, double basin, loo and bidet.  This lovely sunny room has windows on three sides and is as pleasant as a sitting room as it is as a bedroom.  Views of the lavender fields, the rose garden and the woods.  The room is decorated with carefully chosen antiques and Provencal art.

 Master bedroom 2

No less magnificent, master bedroom two (26m²) has exquisite views and a large bathroom complete with family sized shower.  It also boasts a charming balcony overlooking the terrace and its 100 year-old olive tree and lavender fields.  The en-suite bathroom affords a unique view east towards the woods.

Cots for small children can be provided on request. Fans in each bedroom.

Other Amenities

  • Washer & dryer, dishwasher, stereo, wireless internet access, TV with English speaking channels, fireplace.

Outdoor Living

A special feature of MAS L’ AUTHENTIQUE is its twenty metre ‘overflow’ swimming pool.  Located slightly away from the house, the pool is hidden in a woodland clearing surrounded by beautifully kept lawns.  There are teak sun-loungers and deck-chairs, a hammock and a large covered pergola.

MAS L’ AUTHENTIQUE was originally constructed in the eighteenth century on the edge of woods.  With the outdoor life in mind, the gardens provide a host of locations for al-fresco meals, from a simple lunch for two in the woods, to a barbeque on the terrace for a large group.  A network of paths meander through the woods immediately to the rear of the house, making it possible to wander at leisure. The woods and fields are home to a wealth of flora and fauna including migrating exotic birds. In spring the woods abound with wild flowers.  In summer the air is filled with the scent of lavender, and in autumn when the vines turn golden and red they look magnificent.
