Lacoste is a very picturesque, medieval village opposite the village of Bonnieux. Perched on the northern slopes of the Petit Luberon Mountain, part of the Luberon National Park, there are spectacular views over the Calavon Valley and the Mountains of Vaucluse. The walls of the towering ruined castle standing above Lacoste appear to protect the village, well known for the impressive chateau which belonged to the Marquis de Sade in the Eighteenth Century and is now owned by Pierre Cardin. It is a village of ancient stone buildings connected by narrow ‘calade’ pebble surfaced streets and there is a market every Tuesday. There are several restaurants, cafés and a boulangerie in the village.
The house is a pretty eighteenth century Mas, set in a beautiful established garden and has recently been completely re-designed and renovated internally to a contemporary and warm finish. The new layout includes a huge, open plan living/dining area with a superb kitchen opening onto the dining terrace. This overlooks the pool with views down the valley and across to the village of Bonnieux.
