This property, in a region of lavender, olive trees and cicada in the south-east of France, stands near to a restored hilltop village, typical of the Provencal side of the French department of Drôme, with its paved streets and its vestiges of a medieval castle.
Just 5 minutes from Grignan and the outstanding Renaissance style chateau that belonged to the Marchioness-de-Sévigné’s daughter.
A slip road on to the A7 motorway is 8 minutes away. Montélimar, the nougat capital, with its TGV train station providing 3-hour links to Paris, is some twenty minutes away. An hour from Avignon and its airport.
The 18th century, Provencal Mas house
This traditional, stone Mas house spans various levels; the main building having three floors. The slopes of the roof are covered with Roman tiles. Lavender blue shutters adorn the facades, creating the impression that it is straight out of a painting by Cézanne.
The guest house and the swimming pool
This guest house, set out in an 18th century barn, stands at a distance from the main residence. Its privacy is protected by the surrounding lush vegetation. It comprises two bedrooms on the ground floor with two shower rooms and toilets. The spacious lounge, with its cathedral ceiling, spans approx. 60 m² and a kitchen is laid out along one wall. It opens on to a terrace facing the swimming pool via two large windows. Upstairs, a bedroom under the sloping roof has its own shower room, with toilet. The garden is laid out around the 8x4 m swimming pool. Once again, vegetation keeps it out of sight of onlookers.
The unusual dwelling in the garden
One hundred year old trees are dotted around the traditional Mas house, forming a delightful setting. An unusual dwelling has been constructed in one of them; great care having been taken not to damage the tree. A spiral, wooden stairway goes up to a terrace on to which opens a warm, cosy bedroom. It has a wonderful view of the hilltop village.
The stream, classified as first category for fishing, flows peacefully along the property boundary for some 500 metres. It is possible to catch rainbow trout, amongst others, as well as crayfish. It also makes a natural, verdant place to go for a dip. Delightful waterfalls mark the transition before it continues alongside the little wood with its evergreen oak trees.
Provence and water. Extensive sunlight, olive trees, lavender, cicada and the stream, which widens before cascading in a waterfall, are some of its many assets. This traditional Mas house has a flexible layout and could be divided up or remain a large, comfortable home. The guest house is concealed by vegetation. The wooden chalet up in a tree is an added bonus that will appeal to some. When swimming, there is a choice between the pool and the stream. This little haven would, therefore, lend itself to many pleasant lifestyle projects.
