Sitting in more than 20 hectares of its own grounds, Domaine Marderic is a hidden gem. With panoramic views over the south Luberon, mature woodland and vast areas of lawn, this is a property where a large family can spread out and really take advantage of the surrounding nature.
As you look down the grounds towards the swimming pool from one of the terraces of the property, you have the feeling of looking out across a golfing fairway with the village of Ansouis in the distance.
The characterful kitchen is fully equipped, with an American fridge, coffee machine, breakfast table seating 8 people, oven/cooktop, double sink and taps, microwave, mini-oven, toaster and a lemon-juice maker. As well as views out over the grounds, the windows on the right of this shot look out into the covered terrace area which can be seen in the shot below. The door also connects directly with the kitchen.
Set slightly apart form the sitting area, nearer to the kitchen, a second sitting room, this time with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, satellite reception and a surround sound home cinema. Perfect for keeping the kids happy whilst grown-ups enjoy that well-earned apéritif!
As one moves further into the house one is presented with the living room and reception, connected by the large arch. The fireplace is the focal point of this area, with comfortable seating for those wishing to relax in the coolness of the house. This area has a HiFi system, including a Bose integrated sound system, which provides music to the veranda.
If one of your party needs a quiet place to do some work during their stay, this bureau is the perfect spot - light and airy, with views over the mature trees. At the time of writing this description the bureau has a scanner/photocopier and a printer available for guests use. If office appliances are important for your stay, please enquire whether these are still available and working correctly.
The main bedroom is found on the first floor. It has a Moroccan feel and boasts a 160-cm bed with an en-suite bathroom. Interestingly, there is a mezzanine in the room which has comfortable seating and hosts a small library. Beneath this you have a mini-bar with a washbasin. The bedroom also benefits from a fireplace and the French windows lead out onto a spacious terrace which is shared with the following, adjacent double bedroom.
What a fireplace! Also enjoying en-suite facilities, this 160-cm double-bedded room has access to the terrace mentioned above. It also enjoys an antique writing desk, a flat-screen satellite TV and a DVD/Blu-Ray player.
The fourth bedroom also has a 160-cm double bed and access to a large terrace, but parents should be aware that the terrace has dangerously low walls which are not adequate for the protection of children.
