About the property

‘Mas’ means farmhouse, which doesn’t do justice to this traditionally Provençal home

Set on the edge of a vineyard and surrounded by cypress, olive and fig trees, Mas du Bassin lies just 3km from the charming town of Lourmarin, on the road to Cucuron. Here you will have the best of both worlds; relax in the quiet and tranquility of the countryside but be just minutes away from the amenities of several of the most appealing villages in the Luberon.

Recently restored to a very high standard, it was designed to create an elegant and relaxing atmosphere. Although decorated in traditional style, clever use of light gives the ‘mas’ (farmhouse) a contemporary feel. Modern indoor amenities include Sky satellite television, DVD player, and an iPod docking station. If needed, there is underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs.

The generously sized kitchen has been renovated with a high-quality waxed concrete finish, stainless steel units and a large central island for food preparation. All the mod-cons are there, including Liebherer fridge and wine chiller, Bosch dishwasher, a fitted espresso coffee maker and a juicer. Just off the kitchen are full laundry facilities as well as a separate toilet.

The spacious downstairs is anchored at one end by the fully equipped kitchen and, at the other end, by an elegant and perfectly appointed formal, library-style sitting room, with open fireplace, ample seating and even an immaculate Steinway baby grand piano. Double doors lead from this lounge area to a covered patio terrace, with a 12-seater table and chairs, perfect for an aperitif in the evening or for an al fresco lunch.

In the centre of the ground floor living area is an open fireplace, great for chilly evenings, surrounded by comfy armchairs and an overstuffed sofa, among other Provençal-style furnishings. The long dining table alongside is conducive to lazy lunches and relaxed evenings over a bottle of wine with family and friends. Two sets of double doors flow out onto the main terrace.

Upstairs, this lovely home has three large, light-filled double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathroom consisting of large shower, while the third has a charming bath with hand-held shower and separate toilet. One of the bedrooms has a balcony overlooking the surrounding fields and the patio below, complete with trellised grapevine.

Outside, there are several seating areas where you can enjoy enchanting views of the Luberon Natural Regional Park. There is a the inviting covered terrace that is perfect for afternoon barbecues, an expansive open terrace with sun loungers, a formal garden with picturesque lily pond – and numerous nooks and crannies where one can steal away to read a book or do a bit of inspired writing or drawing. There is ample space for children to play and explore without being out of sight of adult supervision, and the adjacent shared pool is a magnet for adults and children alike. There is also plenty of parking, some of it covered.

About ARNOLD Robert

Geraldine and Robin Arnold were born in Northern Ireland and have spent most of their life in England. Robin is a retired Actuary. Living here is ideal, not least because they can wake up to the sun all year round, and follow their passions for painting and playing the piano with little interruption whilst enjoying the varied company of local friends

ARNOLD Robert purchased this farmhouse in 2007

Why ARNOLD Robert chose Lourmarin

Provence is unique. The atmosphere is unique and the weather is better than in UK

What makes this farmhouse unique

The sun is a great spiritual and physical benefit to us and in the Luberon, it is nearly always there. Our bedroom is in the east and it's the first thing we see and feel in the morning.

Excellent property with beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a stunning location with beautiful views from all of the bedrooms. Walter was most helpful in making recommendations and we felt as if we were in a family home. Some of the kitchen equipment could have been updated (blunt knives) and the only real challenge was that the stairs were quite difficult for my elderly mother in law to manage however that was a minor issue
