Mas d’Oléandre, Lacoste, Provence

Sleeps 9

€4,375 - €11,000 per week

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.

Upstairs the four bedrooms, all with new bathrooms/shower rooms, have pretty views up to Lacoste or over the valley below. The house is ideal for two families with two master bedrooms, one with a four poster bed, a twin/double and another double, all with en suite bathrooms or shower room. The upstairs TV room gives an additional space for relaxing.

There is a ground floor small double bedroom for one and shower room which is particularly useful for those unable to manage the stairs or wanting an extra bit of privacy, for example a teenager or nanny.

Sleeps:  9

What Sarah thinks:

“I first visited this house when it was a shell.  It is now a beautiful home with stunning views across the Luberon Valley and up to the iconic village of Lacoste.  It has so much to offer – including a new tennis court due to be finished in April 2019”.
