Maison de Grans is an authentic Provençal style 18thC bastide in the village of Grans, midway between the Alpilles and the Luberon hills.
This is an ideal location for those who wish to enjoy outdoor activities such as walking and cycling in magnificent countryside, yet who also like to have all the facilities of a typical Provencal village within walking distance. For those interested in culture and history, the Roman cities of Aix, Arles and Avignon are all within easy reach.
The property itself, which is in a magnificent setting, has been lovingly restored by its owners (an artist and an author), and is very tastefully furnished with antiques, objets d’art and high quality soft furnishings. Its traditional, Provencal style kitchen, and private swimming pool, with pool-house, set in a beautiful garden makes this a very special property indeed.
The owners, who would be happy to offer sculpture or clay modelling courses on request, live in an adjoining, but independent studio in the grounds, but the pool remains for the exclusive use of our guests.
