18th century provencal farmhouse in the Alpilles montains


A property with irresistible charm.

This beautiful abode nestles in a small valley in the Alpilles and was built in the 17th and 18th centuries by Daniel Lombard, a counsellor to the King and a Judge, who fell in love with the place.

The original farmhouse has been extended and the surrounding area organised to separate the farmland (originally vines) from the holiday area.

A large retaining wall has made it possible to create a majestic base for the south façade, forming a sort of balcony overlooking the valley.

The new owners of this outstanding place join the long line of people who have fallen in love with it.
They have not limited renovation work to the buildings (with the subtle integration of all the latest mod cons via aesthetic choices made in collaboration with the famous Axel, Boris and May VERVOORDT interior designers), but have gone as far as to completely rework the immediate surroundings of the buildings and create an ornamental garden on multiple levels with the help of the landscape gardener Erik DHONT.
The indoor rooms and passageways are clearly reflected outside, but there are also some new innovations to be discovered in the garden, created during the renovation of the site.
