Maison Costiere

Imagine a four storey country house in dry stone standing as a fortress in the middle of ten hectares (24.70 acres) of vineyards, cherry trees, olive trees and lavender.
All around the eyes rest on a panorama of breathtaking beauty. From early morning, the sun rises behind the hill of Bonnieux, creating around the former summer residence of the Popes of Avignon, a glaring halo.
Sometimes at midday the ever white top of the Ventoux, the giant of Provence, looks so close that one feels one could reach out and touch it. At sunset, before disappearing behind Sade’s Castle in La Coste, the royal star fondles Bonnieux with its last glow. Night suddenly takes hold of the Luberon. The moon seems to roll down the mountain like a large balloon. Then slowly the vast black sky, relentlessly palpitating, as it were, with the twinkling of milliards of stars, envelopes the noble country house, the vineyards, the olive trees, the lavender fields, the flocks of geese and sheep all around, as well as the villages in the background and indeed the whole of Provence.

In the gardens of the country house, whilst leisurely wandering along the paths, to the rhythm of the cypresses, one comes to the three fountains and is amazed to discover in the middle of the Tuscan garden a fascinating geometrical pattern reaching as far as the horizon. A walk round the spring of the Tuscan garden

The newly renovated eighteenth century farmhouse offers three comfortable bedrooms, three bathrooms, a Turkish bath and a spa, to be combined with essential oils of Provence. The Farmhouse of the cottage An olive tree dating back to the seventeenth century A holiday in one of these classical and luxurious country houses becomes almost a yearly ritual trip, one would not like to miss. Inhabited since the beginning of Western civilization, the Vaucluse (Vallis clausa: closed valley where the spout well of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse comes from) quietly and most humbly gives its ancestral strength and delivers its historical treasures to those who live nearby . If someone falls in love with the breathtaking archaic beauty of the surroundings, the body, heart and soul start rejuvenating simultaneously.
