a 45-ha wine-growing property with 17 ha of vines, in the Lubéron region
This property is 20 minutes from the motorway; 40 minutes from Aix-en-Provence; an hour from Marseille TGV train station and airport; 15 minutes from a large town with all shops and amenities, in Lubéron Regional Nature Park.
The traditional Mas house
This robust building dates from the 19th century. Constructed in the centre of the estate and recently renovated, it stands side on to the warm Provencal light. Like a look-out post, it takes in all the land surrounding it whilst keeping an eye on the distant hills, delimiting Lubéron Regional Nature Park. It extends east to west over two levels, built above cellars.
A rectangular garden level opens with a vast entrance hall, with cross-ribbed vaults. This hall provides access to a dining room with, on one side, a through kitchen and, on the other, a lounge, with a fireplace, followed by a bedroom, with its own bathroom and toilet. Interesting, double wrought iron gates, between the lounge and the bedroom, open on to a stairway that goes down to two vaulted, stone cellars, housing an independent laundry room with a door leading outside.
The stairway goes up to a landing that provides access to three bedrooms on the south side, two on the north side and one on the east side. Three bathrooms, two shower rooms and three toilets complete this level.
The two vaulted, stone cellars respectively span approx. 21 and 14 m².
The self-contained flat
This flat is accessed via the north facade of the traditional Mas house. It comprises a main room in use as a lounge with a kitchen area. This living room precedes a shower room and toilet. A mezzanine houses a bedroom, spanning approx. 10 m². The total floor surface area of this flat is approx. 37 m².
The garage, spanning a surface area of approx. 30 m², adjoins the east gable wall. A canopy, supported on two pillars, borders the south side of this garage. It houses a summer kitchen which looks out over the terrace extending it as well as over the swimming pool.
The boiler room
This independent construction, spanning a surface area of approx. 10 m², is on the south facade, in line with the kitchen.
The swimming pool
Forming a 6x12 m relaxation area, this swimming pool is at the east end of the traditional Mas house. It is bordered by a paved deck and is enhanced with a covered terrace and a fitted summer kitchen.
The wine storehouse
A large construction set at a distance to the north of the traditional Mas house, this wine storehouse dates from the 1980’s. It spans a surface area of 258 m² and has an 8.50 m high ridge. A row of vats is lined up on either side of the area on the ground floor. It also includes a mezzanine floor.
A grass tennis court is fully enclosed with fencing and enhanced with an umpire’s chair. It is laid out in an area on the south-east edge of the vines.
This immaculately kept vineyard spans 17 hectares of land. The vine stock dates from different periods and certain are quite recent. They are all more or less at a mature fruit-producing stage and have an excellent aspect in a region where the climate harmoniously ripens the grapes.
Again with a good aspect and dotted with scrubland and woods, the farmland spans a surface area of 26 ha, not counting the land with the buildings. This flat or slightly sloping, continuous plot makes farming easy.
This property is but an invitation to go back to the authentic way of country life in a nuisance-free, Provencal setting. Market gardening or animal rearing activities could easily take place on this farm. An enthusiast could proudly produce an AOP wine (Appellation d'Origine Protégée - PDO “Protected Designation of Origin”) on renowned land within the Lubéron Regional Nature Park. The building is ready to accommodate a large family, friends and/or to start a bed & breakfast activity. The surface area without vines could also be used for an equestrian activity. Multiple possibilities are therefore on offer in this setting which vibrates under Provence’s azure blue sky.
