with park, olive grove and woodlands on about 13ha, in a single lot
Roussillon, VAUCLUSE provence-cote-dazur 84220 FR

Location

A stone's throw from the village of Roussillon, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France and famous for its largest ochre deposit in the world. 35 minutes from the A7 motorway, 45 minutes from the TGV station, 75 minutes from Marseille international airport, 15 minutes from an 18-hole golf course, 8 minutes from all amenities.

Description

This is a traditional Provençal bastide, elegantly restored, with colourful facades and numerous terraces, a testimony to the good times before the 1929 crisis and the appearance of synthetic dyes, which sounded the death knell for the local ochre production. In total, the property offers 350 m² of living space, seven bedrooms, several reception rooms and a magnificent swimming pool. The environment is preserved and the land, in a single lot (13 ha), includes a landscaped garden, an olive grove, centuries-old plane trees and woodlands. It offers fabulous views over the countless vineyards and olive trees. In the distance lie the Vaucluse Mountains, wooded with cedars, kermes oaks and all the diversity of the Mediterranean flora. A complete lack of visual disturbance or noise.

The bastide

Built over three levels, it dates back to the 18th century and is south-facing. The colour of the lime-rendered walls reflects the natural pigments of the region. The roof features a traditional cornice with three rows of Roman tiles. The floor area is about 350 m². There are a total of seven bedrooms, four of which offer en-suite bathrooms, shower and toilet.

Our opinion

This is an outstanding property ideally situated in an enchanting and protected setting. The nearby village of Roussillon is ranked as one of the most beautiful villages of France and is unique in that the facades are rendered with natural pigments, reflecting an infinite variety of yellows, oranges and reds. The venue has attracted many artists: Jean Cocteau, Carzou, Buffet, Ambrogiani and many others. The presence today of craftsmen and artists' galleries enhances the original sense of the landscape. There are also a number of good restaurants to be found, where you can enjoy the gastronomic talents of some famous chefs.
