Overview

This splendid Provençal bastide has been recently renovated to an excellent standard and is located at the foot of the Luberon Mountains, just 2 kilometers above one of the most beautiful villages in Provence — Bonnieux. Situated in a magnificent 10-acre private park with impeccably kept gardens divided by ancient stone walls, the property has magnificent views over a cedar forest.

Mas des Bories offers more than 37,000 square feet of living space and is perfect for those who wish to enjoy lazy days in the sun within close proximity of the cultural attractions of Provence in the Aix and Avignon area.

The stone built exterior is in harmony with the landscape. The living quarters are on three floors with the living and dining room, kitchen and bedrooms on the main terrace opening out onto the gardens. Guests enjoy the scents of lavender, rosemary and thyme in season. The swimming season is long here with the pool (that can be heated at additional cost, but is otherwise passively warmed by the sun) with moveable glass roof and nearby Jacuzzi for 4+ people. There are comfortable sun loungers. There is a shady BBQ area with stone tables and benches for enjoying al fresco meals, together with a lovely pergola, or alternatively a fabulous long garden table and chairs on a covered porch just off the kitchen and interior dining room. The terraces boast comfortable garden furniture and a hot spa awaits in the garden just behind one of the ancient borie sites.

The flagstone entrance hall with elegant curving staircase and candelabra leads to the spacious lounge, with inviting sofas in white and chocolate, together with high ceilings, wide windows and a stunning fireplace. On the overlooking mezzanine is the elegant dining area with library. Attractively tiled Italian showers and bathtubs complement the stylishly furnished bedrooms with their soft lighting, French windows, mirrors, cushions, lamps, paintings, and mixture of contemporary and traditional furniture in attractive gentle, neutral colors. There is a spacious Provençal kitchen which is fully equipped and has marble counters, beamed ceiling and stone features. There is a full fitness room and air conditioning throughout.

Mas des Bories is perfect for family reunions or groups of friends wishing to have a special holiday together visiting the Luberon and who want the best available both in décor and location to be able to both sightsee and also relax at the property.
