Situated some 7km from the hilltop village of Murs, and about 15km from Gordes, Les Martinets enjoys an elevated position overlooking the Luberon National Park. Whilst this property shares the 30 acre estate with its neighbouring property, Le Bastidon, the properties are separated by a grassy meadow and each property has its own swimming pool. The tennis court is shared. Les Martinets is ideal for those seeking privacy, as the estate is quite isolated.
The mas is built around the most charming courtyard, which provides protected sunny spots in the cooler months, aand those all important shaded areas providing relief from the full force of the midday sun.
The live-in guardian can help organize and/or lead bicycle tours (either professional or relaxed) around the wonderful hills, as well as walking picnics which are huge fun. All types of cooking, once again either smart or relaxed can be organised, wedding receptions are welcome. Please contact us for more information.
The lounge and dining room are beautifully presented, light pouring in from the courtyard. The mas achieves what many properties do not, a delightful melange of modern convenience with authentic French character and charm.
Both of these en-suite bedrooms open out onto a pretty little terrace which overlooks the courtyard. The bedroom shown below has its terrace covered and benefits from a antique bed which is ideal for siestas.
