"La Ferme du Bon Dieu" - a beautifully restored 18th Century Provencal farmhouse, set within its own private gardens filled with ancient olive trees, lavender, wisteria and hydrangea. In short; it is the most romantic of Provencal properties. Nestled in 2.75 hectares of land with 8,500 sq m of landscaped gardens featuring a vineyard, olive trees, fountains, courtyards and terraces, outdoor heated pool, and full size tennis court, this stunningly landscaped and beautifully appointed farmhouse boasts sunny terraces and courtyards decorated with roses and hydrangea, whilst the upper terrace with outdoor heated pool and pool house, provides amazing views over the Luberon, gardens and vineyard. The interior retains the original authenticity and charm of the old farmhouse at the same time incorporating up to date technology. Room layout has been designed to allow sunshine to flood into the whole house with furnishings of the highest specification including a grand piano, a library and a lovely views of the garden and Luberon from the reception room.
