The Experience

In summer, find shady spots in the grassy grounds and swim lazy laps in the pool. In winter, you can go barefoot across heated, recycled, terracotta tommettes that cover every floor. This rambling 18th-century sheep barn, surrounded by orchards, olive trees and fields of sheep, has been simply and elegantly restored.

Thick stone walls flow into a vaulted ceiling on the cavernous ground floor, with big kitchen windows at one end, a stone fireplace at the other, and French doors opening to the garden. Beamed bedrooms are spread across the top two floors.

Hop into history-rich Lambesc, a five-minute drive. Pick up breakfast’s croissants, stock up at Friday’s market, and taste the Chateau de Calavon’s organic, aromatic wines. Its vineyards were once owned by the Princes of Orange.

Reviews

This is a warmly furnished, quiet and comfortable home to share with family or friends on vacation. The kitchen has lots of space for several cooks and the adjoining dining and living areas almost guarantee conviviality but there are also great spaces to retreat to alone inside and out. It's a perfect place for biking, relaxing by the pool or strolling in the woods with a nice village nearby.

Location

The neighbourhood

The property lies just outside Lambesc, a small market town known as ‘Versailles Provençale’, in an area dotted with farms. Try biking and hiking: an idyllic 11km route starts from the village of Saint Cannat. There’s the Chaîne des Côtes for the energetic, and a gentle 9km that starts and ends at Lambesc. Families will enjoy the well-maintained Zoo de la Barben, a ten-minute drive.

Local points of interest from Anne Fournier

  • Lambesc is a very pleasant, small Provencal village with its beautiful Friday market on Friday morning where you can buy all the Provençal specialties. You will also find several vineyards in Lambesc and nearby.
  • La Jasse is an old 18th century sheepfold in the countryside surrounded by fields and forests. Sporty types can go running, hiking or even pic-nicking.
  • The swimming pool is in the middle of a field of olive trees. Relax and swim in its spaciousness. A midnight bath is also possible under the stars.
  • Savour your aperitifs under the gazebo at lunchtime and at night wonderful regional wine. It is a very pleasant place and always cool in summer with a view of the pool and olive trees.
  • You will also find under a small covered terrace a plancha that will allow you to grill fish, meat and vegetables marinated in sauces according to your tastes.
  • Finally for those who love to cook you can use a professional stove that has three ovens including gas and cooking tools to help you whip up a dish. Why not taste the property’s olive oil too?
