Slip from stunning pool to chic lounger, and drink in the views of the Luberon hills. These eco retreats, built of reclaimed terracotta and mellow stone, reflect the charm of the 18th-century ‘mas’ where this lovely French family live. You’ll also meet two pretty sheep, Arthur and Martin.
‘Salvia’ and ‘Bonnelli’ (a bedroom upstairs, a pull-out bed down) extend out from the farmhouse, while ‘Senecio’ is separate but close. All have secluded terraces – two overlooking fields of lavender, one facing lawns and pool. Peacefulness reigns, no houses are visible, and walking paths radiate from the garden.
The position could not be bettered. At the top of the track, turn left for hilltop Roussillon and right for undiscovered Goult. Enjoy a casual lunch on the terrace of the Café de la Poste in Goult, and delicious dinners at Roussillon’s La Treille. Both villages are gorgeous.
